View Full Version : Who Wants a Holy Symbol?
Sat, 28th Jul '01, 6:46pm
Whenever my cleric gets petrified or imprisoned and I fix him up and invite him back to the party, he gets another Holy Symbol (he's currently Lvl 36 and growing). Well he has 3 Holy Symbols of Lathander now because the game doesn't seem to realize it's already given him one (Clerics gain a Holy Symbol at Lvl 25). The Holy symbol of Lathander does the following (it's worn in the ring slot):
- +1 Strength
- +5% Magic Resistance
- One extra 6th and 7th level spell slot
Now wearing both Holy Symobls is cumulative, so you can gain 2 extra spell slots, etc.-not bad for an exploit :D But I feel guilty doing that so I've shoved my extra ones aside into one of my Bags of Holding and put on another ring.
I was wondering, anyone else playing a priest of Helm or Talos and what effect do those Holy symbols have on the cleric? The same effect as the Holy Symbol of Lathander or different?

Holy symbols are all the same. Cool tactic!

Holy symbols are nice, but.....
Viconia got her holy symbol of Talos, and all was fine. However, as I was romancing her,and with my main char being chaotic good and all, after picking certain dialogue options she (SPOILER) changed alignment :mad:. Although this is good as she wont quit when my rep is 20, I can't use her holy symbol :(.

Big B - sorry that I wasn't here to defend the mighty Cleric!
Honestly, I don't have too much time to play BG2, and am not even into TOB yet! :(
I think that I'm a higher level cleric in real life than I am in the game! (Of course, I don't have too many spells . . .)

Dude, do you know how much a Holy Symbol is worth. MONEY IS OF THE IMPORTANCE. I WANT MONEY!! If its worth >1000 gp its worth the stone to flesh, flesh to stone spells. ehehehe

I know how much they're worth, but I didn't worry about selling them. Let me tell you at one time I got up to 400,000 Gold Pieces, I completed the game around 300,000 Gold Pieces. I didn't need to sell my excess Holy Symbols. I retired from adventuring very wealthy.

I'm with you. By the end of each game, money was a joke. There is so much stuff to sell, and once you get the bag of holding, you can really clean up.

::horrified:: money? a joke? ::gasp:: money was all important to me in ToB because of all the cool stuff they were selling. I couldent help myself i had to buy everything!!!! But, i didnt have the money so i had to scrounge throughout the game for it.......money, a joke?!?!?!?
