This game becomes 25 times better if you use the following mods in this install order:
(all available at gibberlings 3 forums)

1)spell revisions version 4 which supports bg2 ee (not yet available for BG 2 EE openly, but im using a closed beta of it). version 3 runs only on simple bg 2 trilogy.
this mod contains a MUST HAVE fix of a nasty old bug where mirror image blocked aoe spell damage. If you have this bug, this mod is a must install.
Also this mod makes very good spell changes (makes the ineffective spells more effective, and overpowered spells less effective)

2)sword coast stratagems. This is a complete overhaul of the game with extremely good enemy AI and new reasonable abilities, fixes for magic system and items. The opponents will use all the options the player can use now.

3)gibberlings 3 tweakpack for bg2. makes the game much much less frustrating like you know if you played it a lot you can have an option to remove the boring traps and locks etc, rest anywhere, set xp cap at 20, 30 or unlimited levels, enable full grandmastery with a neat +1 attack per round bonus when going from 4 to 5 stars.

enjoy.

    Without derailing this too, people just taking their first steps into BG modding should also get Unfinished Business. Very small and seamless mod that restores some cut content into the game. Also, if you love Spell Revisions, Item Revisions is another must-have imo. If nothing else, Beamdog should hire Demi to make item descriptions for their new items.

    If I am not mistaken this is already a part of the default BG2:EE.

    Indeed. Minsc's quest is pure awesome.

    I would say Sword Coast Stratagems is the best mod available for BG2. It is so thorough, so customizable, so intelligent, and the AI is not so easily predictable as it is in the vanilla game. Plus, it lacks the two most common problems for difficulty mods: realism and game balance. It doesn't require ridiculously overpowered strategies to beat, nor does it come off as unrealistic or silly.

    But then, I haven't touched a RP-type mod in quite some time, and difficulty mods aren't the only ones out there.

    1) BG2Tweaks should be installed before SCS. It's not going to cause major bugs, but putting SCS last is technically better in some small ways.

    2) If you appreciate Spell Revisions then you would probably love Item Revisions as well. I literally will not okay the games without both of them.

    3) As long as we're going down the road of "you'd also like," well, there are *tons* or other mods that improve the game in ways big and small. No reason to limit yourself to just three. I'm using 15 on IWDEE, and then I'm preparing a BGT game with 95. The EEs don't need as many, but you could easily add 20-30 mods each without breaking a sweat.

    Go down that rabbit hole! Go down it!!
