By cap, yes. But early and midgame, its not uncommon for my Bard to be 2-3 levels ahead of my mage at any given time.Not to mention that because of a Bard's crazy levelling, level scaling spells will always be stronger cast by a Bard than by a Mage.this is true of BG2 but no so much for bg1 since bards are at most 1 level ahead of a wizard
I don't understand the hate for daggers. My new full saga playthrough is Half Orc F/T with 2 pips daggers and 2 pips dual wield. Use throwing daggers. If anyone survives the first few seconds of ranged daggers at massive STR mod to damage (normally 2-3 hit chances at 10-13 damage) then close for dual wield with dagger of venom and other +2 daggers (e.g. from tomb area after the Nashkel Mines). You can also steal the guy's +1 Dagger in candlekeep, killing him and taking his plate armour when he catches you, to get a magic weapon from the get go.Probably because people seem to value dps to a tunnel vision extent. Daggers are amazing because of how many of them have secondary debilitating effects, combined with a great speed factor and dual wielding would mean that your enemies are always too crippled to attack effectively. Its the same reason that so many players hate Xan as npc (and Enchanters in general).
