View Full Version : Spell progression for bards
Tue, 5th Jun '01, 6:43pm
ive searched the forums and different sites but I havenīt been able to find anything.
What I wonder is if the spell progression for bards continue after level 23 or if that is a built in cap in AD&D ?
(I have never played PnP D&D ,other more interesting fantasy rpgīs around)
otherwise I will continue playing my flamboyant swashbuckler.

I think you've get a few things mixed up... Clerical and druid spells only go up to level 7. (You get more of them as you level up, but their level doesn't go past 7 ever).
Though in ToB some of the quest spells and high level abilities you get will be even more powerful than the normal spells you can cast.

I guess I better clarify myself.
What I wondered was if the spell progression for bards continue after they have reached level 23. (my blades level, not spell level)
In other words, do a bard ever get (mage)spells from level 7 and up? or, will they get more spells from every level?
(will my blade ever be able to cast black blade of disaster :)

Doh! Sorry about that. I'm obviously under too much stress lately because I wrote that whole response as if you wanted the info on druids. (I read bard as druid).
Happens to the best of us...
As for your question, I think they can't go over level 6. But I'm not 100% sure about this.

I do now what you mean about stress though. I just printed my master of science thesis.
(BG2 almost spoiled it last winter, but now Im ready for a new game:)
I guess I have the same problem as many others. Since I have played through BG2 once, almost through another time and am a member of restarters anonymous I would like to do it right the last (?) time.
Because of that I tend to think to much over what to play instead of just playing!
maybe I should just do it the groovey way, use shadowkeeper to get a blade/swashbuckler dualclass, yieepikaaye !!
its just not fun to play if you now that after a certain level you have reached a barrier.
(hence my curiosity about bards after lvl 23)

Bards are limited to maksimum level six spells.
Edit: Why am I being teased on the chat for this post?

will they get more spells per level for spells 1-6 or is it a definite wall at 23 and the spell chart will stay that way?
I guess a have to let go and get some coffe instead.

Grovflab-Sorry I dropped out of the chat before they started picking on you. There is no eksuse for people giving an eksessive amount of lip to someone who could be the nekst Albert Einstien!
Maybe nekst time they'll think again before making fun of your ekstremely intelligent remark!

I extracted this data from DEFAULT.BIF file after a long sweat and then I discovered that I can do it more easily with Infinity Explorer... :mad: I'm a fool.
Nm, here it goes:
This means that bard can't learn spells hihger than level 6 spells. By levelling up in bard class, only number of available places to memorize spells is increased.
And sorry for putting it as a code - lame UBB AI would kill spaces if I didn't put it like that and table would be unrecognizable and hard to understand.

Don't you hear that outhouse still calls you? :p
