Oh so this is not a bug? I don't remember it being that way before? Was this a new change with the EEs?Well i don't think you can classify it as a bug since you need to use a mod to remove the XP cap in the 1st place, also the standard unmodded game has a 2,950,000 XP cap for SoA and 8m for ToB, so you're basically past the SoA cap at the start. There's likely a .2da file you can change to stop this from happening, i'm just saying that even with Tweaks Anthology applied to my SoA/ToB game i was still getting downgraded to 2,950,000 when i imported from SoD, so it's not just you finding this.
If you use a thief to steal all the scrolls available in Athkatla with a few potions of Master thievery you can get to around level 16 if solo just (remove the thief before you scribe them), that will pretty much get you a copy of every 1-6th level spell, if you do Copper Coronet you'll also get a few 7th and 8th scrolls and there's also a few 8th level ones from the Adventurers mart Scroll merchant. Also there's 2 Protection from Undead scrolls, 1 of which should let you get the Ring of Gaxx if you time it right and use a Haste potion for the running between Liches/Kangaxx. Will need to use a thief to pick the locks and remove the traps on Bridge Lich door and Kangaxx's door tho, or use 2 Knocks.That's a big investment, thought it'll make a monster of a character.Well as an update I was pretty bummed. So I started rolling in BG1, and just got a human Berserker with...Nice, playing a Rage-Mage myself atm, although Barbarian instead of Berserker since it now counts as a fighter kit and can therefore be dual-classed. Gotta love that 93% physical resistance with Helmet of Dumathoin, Defender of Easthaven and Hardiness popped, although i'm 17th mage now so lost access to the equipment until level 40 is reached (solo with xp cap removed so make super-fast XP)
Str (18/22) Dex (18) Con (18) Int (17) Wis (7) Cha (14)
You can guess what she'll be. Never rolled high enough for that before. Got it in five rolls. I think it is karma for abandoning the monk run.
I'm looking forward to hitting BG2 and for when I reach Berserker (9) Mage (10). I've never done a mage dual before, so I plan to just save/buy as many scrolls as I can and buff his Int to 25 with potions. Should be interesting to see him get a full spell book and several levels in seconds.
