  • Re: Golden Pantaloons import?

    if you import a character that is holding the pantaloons they will be found here in SoA:
    in the first dungeon behind the painting where you find the dagger +1 and the healing potion x3 they will be there
  • Re: Your Greatest Facepalm Moment?

    Best (and oldest) facepalm: In my first ever playthrough, actually listening to a certain mage on the stairs of the FAI telling me:''wait a moment, I got something for you...'' and just standing there, telling myself:''what the hell is he doing...oh...'' Reload time...
    this reminds me of the time back in the day when i was a wee lad playing BG for the first time-ish, there was a halfling selling a magical gem that would give you good luck, so i was like; sweet, that sounds like an awesome item can't wait to get it. The only catch: it cost 1000 GP and i was ALWAYS strapped for cash ( spending money at temples to heal party members and raising them from the dead, ah good times when i was bad at this game hahaha ) any way, off i went just trying to get that 1000 Gold, selling absolutely anything i had to get it, and then finally, gathered the 1000 gold and having my party members alive at the same time ( which was quite the feat for me back in the day) and then it was harvest time, time for my "sweet" gem

    so i finally bought it, he disappeared and appreciated my money, and then i had the gem, and i was like; hmm...... doesn't say anything, and there is no "identify" box, i wonder what this is suppose to do.... and then i realised that i've been douped, ah being 12 and naive, those were good times hahahaha
  • Re: Triggering companion quests

    i want to say usually it's X amount of game days before the quest triggers ( like jan jansen's for example ) so you can try rest spamming to get them to activate,

    im not sure what the console command is to advance game days, and im not sure if that will even work

    but some characters arent based on a day timer ( like keldorn for example, you only just have to go to the government district to get his going )
  • Re: Landrin's Antidotes and the Importance of Charisma

    actually, this is how it goes down (if im not mistaken):
    in Candlekeep you indeed need 18 CHA to get 20 GP from Hull or the dagger +1 from fuller

    but outside Candlekeep you start making reaction adjustment rolls and there are 3 results: negative, normal, postive

    so if you roll the "positive" reaction, that is when you get the cool results ( like the 6 antidotes, or the scroll of protection from undead from the girl at the waterfall ect... )

    now the game says it makes a roll between 8-12 and then adds your reaction adjustment score, but rumor has it that the game actually just rolls 10 and adds your reaction adjustment to that ( hence the reason why 18 CHA will usually always give you the positive reaction since you need to roll a 15 to get a positive reaction)

    this can be useful to know because reputation also affects your reaction roll as well, the higher your REP the higher your reaction bonus, the lower your REP the lower higher your reaction penalty

    so if you have a low REP you are really going to want some high CHA to make up for it ( with 19 CHA providing a +8 bonus or 21 CHA providing a +10 bonus )

    so since your CHA is 16 either A- that isn't high enough to get the "positive" reactions from NPCs if the game rolls the arbitrary "10" or B- 16 is just barely high enough to sometimes get a positive reaction when you hit "12"
  • Re: Iteams to increase str for Viconia

    If I feel the need to raise her Strength, I'd just cast the Strength spell which is an easily accessible Mage spell and lasts long enough for you to traverse a whole area with if your Mage is leveled up enough. At the very least it would last long enough at lower levels for tough fights or giving her extra Strength for more carrying capacity to travel to a different map with extra loot, then dropping the loot at the next map and coming back to grab it after selling some stuff.

    Strength increasing items are probably better off in the hands of someone else, but I suppose they're always an option for Viconia if the others' equipment slots are already taken up by something else.
    one of the problems with Viconia's low strength is that it prevents her from wearing those heavier armors and bigger shields and even some weapons ( since the EEs use SoA STR requirements for item usuage ) Vic's STR is so low she can't even use a medium shield haha
    I think she can use some equipment that's magical though that has a lower strength requirement due to that. Or workarounds with armor that are far less encumbering like Ankheg armor.
    with her base STR she can't use any medium/large shields ( even magical ones ) the only plate armor she can wear is ankheg armor, and all the other plate/full plate mails ( even magical ones ) she can't wear, luckily there is a free suit of ankheg armor in nashkiel in the plowed field
