Riverwind's Guide to Throne of Bhaal (Submitted) 19kb Download
This guide is not written for total newbies who haven't read the manual and for whom everything would be a spoiler, nor is it written for accomplished veterans who don't need a guide and are very set in their ways. It is written for everyone in between, who have finished the game at least once or twice but want to replay it without reloading a hundred times. There will be minor spoilers throughout as to availability of weapons and frequency of monsters, but none that give away major plot surprises. In short, this is a strategy guide for those who want to become better players.
Riverwind's Guide to Character Classes 41kb Download
There are enemies to face and missions to accomplish, but the most important aspect of the game is character development, and that is what this FAQ is solely about. This FAQ is geared mainly towards intermediate players (except for the solo guide), and is meant to supplement rather than replace the game manual, so read that first. Finally the author will not be covering every possible character class (that would take forever), but will be giving individual treatment to multi-classes and to dual-classes with solo potential.

Best Mage & Priest Spells Reference by Jens-Christian Huus (Submitted) 27kb Download
Two lists of spells in Word XP made for printing. The spell lists were built after scrutinizing the FAQ's by AquaWarlock and James Bolton. There are two lists, one for priests and one for mages. To make each fit exactly one page, the author left out what he considered the bad spells. The cells of the best spells are marked in yellow. He used the lists a lot during the game as a tool to quickly read about spells at a glance without reading a lot of text in properties boxes. They're also a great help when you're buying spell scrolls in a shop and have to make up your mind about which spells you want to buy and memorize. This is probably only really appealing to newbies.
