New Premium Module: Tyrants of the Moonsea! Read More
Playing BG2 for the first time and before venturing out of Athkatla, not having completed nearly everything there, to deal with the de'Arnise Keep I figured I should maybe buy some gear for myself with the money I had accumulated. I really liked the look of the Reflection Shield. A shield that reflects missiles back at their attackers? Wow! This was just perfect for Aerie since she wasn't strong enough for most other shields.
I was really excited to see how well this would work and in each ensuing battle I carefully tried to see it in action. But she never seemed to get targeted much because she wasn't in the front lines and I wasn't gonna put her there just to get to see my purchase pay off.
After a number of battles I started to wonder if I had maybe wasted some money there when finally I got to see the awesome Reflection Shield in action - and it does work every time 100% of the time! Some foe confused poor Jan, well he was already quite confused to begin with so I didn't worry about it too much. Until I noticed he was taking damage. I didn't notice it until the fight was already over, and oh god, he was still taking damage. He must be poisoned! But no, he was shooting at Aerie and her shield was reflecting his bolts back at him.
