|Scythesong's Guide to Blades (Submitted)
|This guide is dedicated to giving
the Blade kit the recognition it rightfully deserves. The Blade
is easily among the most powerful end enjoyable classes in BG2
- with some of the greatest solo potential, and whose prowess
has no real limit. Feel free to look over the guide if you're
interested in making a Blade, or just want to be convinced that
the Blade kit is as strong as it claims. Be sure of one thing
though - once you read this guide you'll never look at Haer'Dalis
the same way ever again.

|Riverwind's Guide to Throne of Bhaal (Submitted)
|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
|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
|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

that a few of the NPC's in BG2 are basically useless. Not true.

it in their in-depth roleplaying and dialogue. Also, when used
correctly, they can be very useful and quite deadly. Read this
guide for details.
