The likelihood is that if you're modding BG2 you'll add a few npc mods. Complaining about EE on the basis that it adds npcs, which are probably much, much better than the horrible shit modders came up with, is delusional.

Really the only significant complaint against EE versions is that you can't mod them the same way as the originals, so you're missing out on a ton of content.

On the subject of half-races I wish fantasy had a bit more "realism" (maybe that isn't the right word) in it

I wanna see a fantasy world where it's not possible to mix elves and humans because they are completely different species

I wanna see a fantasy world where only the magically-gifted races can use magic

I wanna see a fantasy world with machines powered by magic

I wanna see a fantasy world where the undead races and the Underworld are not the bad guys

I wanna see a fantasy world whose setting is similar to the ancient era

I wanna see a fantasy world whose setting is similar to the industrial era

I wanna see a fantasy world with diverse political systems and a struggle for power

I wanna see a fantasy world where dragons don't look like wyverns and can't breathe fire

I could make a HUGE list of shit I want to see in a fantasy world, but I think I made my point.

Then you run out of spells with half the enemies still alive and your party half dead because damage spells are completely outclassed by utility spells.

They feel kinda weak though. Even with the Unarmed Attack Bonus from NWN1 and the Improved Flurry from NWN2, they still feel weak as shit.

>>259564123
How bad do you fucking control them if you need to buff them?
Like seriously the only fight where they kinda need to be buffed is towards the end when you fight the 3 reavers or whatever. And maybe the final boss.

Everything else should never even make them drop to half their health. As a wizard you cna just go happy and kill 90% of the enemies in the first two turns while the rest of the party takes care of the rest.

Wild mage girl isnt too bad, her humour is vastly inferior to the FUN potential of her randomly misfiring spells, which range from fucking everything in the room, to fucking you up.I once had her summon a fucking demon while casting invisibility.Beat the shit out of every enemy in the room before going after the party.
Blackula is strong independent vampyre who dont need no woman, so she's only romancable with a female character.Gameplay wise she's meh.
Evil orc man is an evil orc who is also evil, spends time talking about evil and how evil it is to be so evil.Pretty good in combat.
Rassad is bro-tier, however he's so fucking useless in combat it's not even funny.
He cant equip armor - and he's got perks that make his fists stronger.So furhter into the game he's completely useless.

They problem I found with a lot of the online builds is that most do one thing really well, and that one thing gets super old fast. Either that or they are specifically designed to beat other builds in PvP.

Both the main campaign and MoTB are, for the most part, super easy. Just make a character you have fun playing and you'll be fine.

>>
>>259568223
The evil endings are horrifying. Like fucking hell both in the OC and MotB if you go evil you are literally worse than Hitler in the endings
>>
>>259565421
One thing to note about MotB is that if you create a character from scratch for it, you're dumped out at like level 17 with no ECL adjustment. I think you're 18 by the end of the tutorial dungeon. Either way, you start with generic gear that probably doesn't suit your build, and you're underleveled for the content that's outside the dungeon. Most builds people post are designed strictly with pvp in mind and are generally unbearable to play through the game with, or rely on having the absolute best equipment you can make, which you didn't get to make because you didn't play through vanilla.

If you start MotB from scratch, you can't really afford any nonsense in your builds. Like a caster that gives up any caster levels 1-18 is absolute torture because you NEED level 9 spells at the minimum. Everything before that is dogshit in epic level content, even with maximize/empower. Likewise, a melee build that gives up BAB during leveling, or doesn't have blind fight is going to be a total bitch. Any race with an ECL penalty is a massive disadvantage when starting MotB fresh.

Meanwhile the epic feats are insanely overpowered, so you get this weird difficulty curve where you're either fucked, or you can cast vampiric feast and everything dies.
>>
>>259568606
Yes. But you can remove it by install spell improvements which fixes a tons of shit.

In all fairness, DnD 3rd is horribly balanced, to the point where you can't have a fighter and a cleric or druid in one party without the fighter being 100% useless or the caster being deliberately ruined.
>>
>>259574112
Everything, really. It's a wizard with level 9 spells, but also really good martial ability. There's a bunch of feats that up your AB and damage and with finesse and a rapier you've got even more ability to hit and with the epic level feat combat insight you switch int for str when it comes to damage rolls. So you end up as a competent caster who can also wreck shit almost as well as a dedicated fighter.

Being apolitical doesn't make you true neutral, if anything, it's highly against it.
True neutral is about maintaining balance, it's why druids were always a definitive True neutral class and required it as alignment.
If you just don't give a fuck/don't consider things part of your job you are probably chaotic or lawful neutral.

>>259587992
That's it. I'm sick of all this "Masterwork Bastard Sword" bullshit that's going on in the d20 system right now. Katanas deserve much better than that. Much, much better than that.
I should know what I'm talking about. I myself commissioned a genuine katana in Japan for 2,400,000 Yen (that's about $20,000) and have been practicing with it for almost 2 years now. I can even cut slabs of solid steel with my katana.

Japanese smiths spend years working on a single katana and fold it up to a million times to produce the finest blades known to mankind.

Katanas are thrice as sharp as European swords and thrice as hard for that matter too. Anything a longsword can cut through, a katana can cut through better. I'm pretty sure a katana could easily bisect a knight wearing full plate with a simple vertical slash.

Ever wonder why medieval Europe never bothered conquering Japan? That's right, they were too scared to fight the disciplined Samurai and their katanas of destruction. Even in World War II, American soldiers targeted the men with the katanas first because their killing power was feared and respected.

So what am I saying? Katanas are simply the best sword that the world has ever seen, and thus, require better stats in the d20 system. Here is the stat block I propose for Katanas:

(One-Handed Exotic Weapon)
1d12 Damage
19-20 x4 Crit
+2 to hit and damage
Counts as Masterwork

(Two-Handed Exotic Weapon)
2d10 Damage
17-20 x4 Crit
+5 to hit and damage
Counts as Masterwork

Now that seems a lot more representative of the cutting power of Katanas in real life, don't you think?

The OC was vs ancient magic lizards. It wasn't ever meant to be good. It was just to showcase the engine.
Shadows of Undrentide was a medusa trying to hijack a buried ancient magic city. At the end you have to escape to the plane of shadows to avoid death.
Hordes of the Underdark has you playing the same character as in SoU, having escaped from the plane of shadow and spent time hanging around with the grim reaper. You end up going to hell in it.

ILMS is not particularly broken and IGMS had its damage halved in NWN2.

At any rate, it's 40d6 distributed in chunks of 2d6 each, with those chunks being split between enemies at random, some of them being wasted due to an enemy dying, and spell resistance factoring in. Whoo - you can do 140 average damage to a single target. It's 70 in NWN2.

140 damage is not a lot when a ton of monsters have HP in the several hundred range.

During the 3rd edition, Asmodeus the ruler of the Nine Hells, doesn't even give experience points to him. That's the level of bullshit of Elminster.

>Whoo - you can do 140 average damage to a single target
Force damage without save and with a lvl 6 slot.
Meanwhile, Meteor Shower, a lvl 9 spell does 24d6 fire damage (who everybody resist) and you can save it for half (or half damage/literally zero damage with evasion)

Guess you are a caster fanboy.

Doesn't make it overpowered. That's less damage than pretty much any other class will ever do.
>Meteor Shower
Meteor Shower is massively underpowered you fucking retard. It used to be much better in 2E, but that's what happens when you think it's an awesome idea to double, triple, or even quadruple monster HP but leave spell damage alone.

To be fair, Asmodeus is pretty much a OP mary sue of the lawful evil group compared to the other arch devils

Still the spell with more damage potential in pnp, you fucking retard.

The point is that it's a retarded baseline to compare spells off of. If you want a spell that actually competes with IGMS, you want any of the Orb spells.

>Orb spells
More bullshit.

Also, lets take other classic, Finger of dead.

If your mom is a lvl 20 wiz or sorc and I finger her, she can make a fort save or die. With an average/good CON, (+2 bonus) your mom will have around 90 HP average, and your bullshit spell, with being 1 level lower than the Finger, does 140 damage without any kind of chance to survive. Hell, with a bit of you you can kill both your mom and your grandma, while if I finger them I need 2 lvl 7 spells.

tl;dr: You are full of BS, caster fanboy.

Sounds like multiclassing is the way to go. I actually just started this game not to long ago and made a Dual-wielding wood elf ranger. I can always respec via the console, what would be a good complement class?

I don't play spellcasters, I just recognize that spellcasters being able to do tiny amounts of damage is not the end of the world in a game where I can make a Barbarian who charges around hitting people for 300 damage per hit with 95% accuracy.

Yes, Storm of Zehir does make the evil ending canon. You can even ask OOM about his master and he says it's the only thing more terrible than him.
There was MASSIVE butthurt at old bioware nwn2 forums because of this. Mostly from biotards who masturbate about their ~Knight-Captain/Bishop~ fantasies. Sucks that the forum got nuked, shit was hilarious.

Truth. I practically failed out of high school because I spent so much time roleplaying on various servers. It was fucking great and I have no regrets.

All I wanted is to be a cool guy with my bros, not some kind of ancient evil that devours all and kills gods.
