I'm glad you enjoyed it. Before I started playing BG2 my expectations were really high. But currently it's even surpassed my expectations of the game. The game is OUTSTANDING, easily my favourite game of all time.Well I almost reached to the end of chapter 4 for the first time and boy oh boy.... was it interesting. My overall feeling for the entire chapter is kinda long but I'll shorten it to the best of my abilities.I really enjoyed reading this.Chapter 4 was just a roller coaster of emotions for me really. I mean starting with finding Imoen in Brynnlaw, the attempt to get to spellhold was interesting because it was like "really another quest to go to spellhold" I mean after helping the shadow thieves... I kinda wanted Imoen back.
But the quests were well done in fact. I enjoyed it... it's like desperately doing whatever you must to get to Imoen but I didn't rush it... because simply I like to read over the dialogue a lot
Then spellhold. I took the way in as a deviant and it was jokes seeing Tiax back... it's funny because I didn't like him in bg1, but I giggled when I saw him again (same with feldorn and Xzar) But Irenicus' damn he was slick in his plans... I mean I was spoiled a bit by the story and throughout chapter 4 I understood why everyone liked him as a villain. He's honestly the best character in the game. I enjoyed the cutscenes with him. But yoshimo..... damn bro I'm still hurt over that. at first when it was revealed yoshimo as Irenicus' puppet I was pissed, but then as you fight him for the final time and told you about the geas and he accepted his fate. I saw him as a complete badass... Yoshimo's character development was prefect in chapter 3 to chapter 4. (The little hints in the banters, the random outbursts in dialogue) Also Saemon Havarian, honestly Saemon is too funny for you to be mad at him. First he snakes you by going on Bodhi's side and he snakes you again by giving you a silver blade which leads to an ambush and snakes you again by selling you out to the githyanki. And then says to you "good luck in your travels" as the ship is breakign about and then ditches you while he swims away. When I saw that I couldn't stop laughing, like damn this guy is the prefect pirate... his sleezy dialogue, him being a smart mouthed idiot and just being plain witty.
Now I'm at the Sahuagin City. I currently like this bonus addition to chapter 4 to help these guys out. But so far chapter 4 in baldur's gate 2 has to be the best written chapter in both games so far.
So good to read a players first time impressions of the game.
Let us know how you get on with the rest of the chapter.
It reminds you just how damn good BG/BG2 is.
And of course why oh why can't somebody/anybody make something comparable.
I did the same thing as you did. But I'm using tuigan bow with +2 arrows which is absolutely disgusting IMO. When I got to thaxll'ssillyia I just remember my Pali CHARNAME (Who is wielding Carsomyr) and Mazzy doing a smack ton of damage to it. thaxll'ssillyia never stood a chance lmaoI just freed her and did her quest, went with Specialization in Katana (Celestial Fury) and used her SS in the offhand, Hill giant belt from Adventurers Mart, plus full plate, helm of Balduran and some +1 pap and she was rocking -8 AC and with boots of Speed would gap-close in an eye-blink and stun n gun everything in her way before my Barbarian could catch up for the most part lol.Also an amazing friend to Aerie, too.Nah, Mazzy's great. She's no goody-two-shoes; she likes Korgan, considers Valygar her squire without consulting him, yells at Jan, calls Anomen a windbag, ... she's real folk, as my grandfather used to say.Mazzy is amazing at everything. She has everything a good tank or archer or fighter needs.Except for a bearable personality.
She's a really good hearted person without being naive. It also helps that CHARNAME for me currently is a paladin, it's like we are partners in arms.
