View Full Version : Man I love that special ability! *spoiler inside*
Fri, 20th Jul '01, 11:38pm
I'm currently playing a solo Chaotic Evil MC Halfling Fighter/Thief (Ragusa influenced ;)) and man I love the special ability "Use Any Item".
That, for me, is the coolest ability yet. I've got my man running around meeting all the NPC's in the game that have their own "special equiptment", persuading them (cough)to allow him to use it. Admittedly some took a little more coaxing than others.
Like that do gooder Cernd. My man told him he just wanted to "see" his cloak (+1 AC - +1 saving throws). But nooo, he just wouldn't hand it over. Now poor Cernd is sipping his "nature juice" through a straw in a hospital bed in Waukeen's Praumenade (without his pretty cloak). Hehe, I'm so evil it scares even me.
Oh well, I guess what I'm saying is, I love the "Use Any Item" ability.

To mods: please remove this thread where it belongs.
I don't think anything is funny here.
I also don't think that this guy wants good for us who don't have ToB yet.

Hey Extremist, this is the ToB forum. Let the guy speak, even though he is an idiot. He did say it was a spoiler, if you don't have ToB then don't come here and read the spoilers and then complain about being spoiled.

Niles - this person originally posted it in the BG2 SoA forum, which is where Extremist replied. He is not insane (contrary to public opinion :D :D).

exactly which part is the spoiler? I know that from the manual already... but as Imoen can't increase in thief levels anymore.. she'lll never get to wear Edwin's amulet... sigh

Thats why you open up Shadowkeeper and make her a thief like she should be again. And restore her old pic too.
Hehe I had her trying to backstab with Carsomyr once, now thats overkill!

First, let me apologize for posting in the wrong forum. (Honestly, I thought I was in ToB - My mistake)
Secondly, maybe I shouldn't post anything in your little forum any more, because all you people seem to do is criticize others for trying to make their posts interesting.
"he is an idiot"
Why would you say such a thing about a person who just tries to make you laugh? Who just tries to liven up these blan posts.
Not funny? Well then I guess my sense of humor is lacking, for I posted it to give you folks a laugh. I suppose if I want to post anything to such as you, Extremist, I should stick to cold, hard facts.
Thank you for seeing the true meaning behind the post. You sir, are truely enlightened.
I suppose I should not try anything interesting, for all you people care about are the rules and regulations here.
There are better things in this world. Look around you...

The NOT funny part was about posting ToB spoiler in SoA forum.
Someone mentioned it's not spoiler because it's in manual? I don't have ToB so I presume I don't have the ToB manual either. Or I missed the manual with SoA?

how the HELL did you get Imoen to use the casymere!

thats by cheating and making Imoen a Mage dual class to a thief instead of the other way around, then you get her to a high level so that she can get that high level ability as mentioned in the manual, "Use Any Items" and it lets the thief practically use anything..

What is the spoiler here ??
Cernd's cloak ?
Special hability (use all item)?
I don't get it...What info has been spoiled ?
Mon, 23rd Jul '01, 7:32pm
I'm quoting myself from above as the original post was made in SoA forum:
I don't have ToB...
The whole thing he said is spoiler to me.

Munir: I liked Imoen much much better as a thief so I opened up shadowkeeper and returned her to her true calling. Believe me she is way more usefull and alot more fun to play now. Even restored her old pic too.
BTW I got overrides for that too if anyone wants em.

Can you take Edwins amulet? I thought he always kept it, like Minsc keeping Boo

If you kill Edwin I guess you can take his amulet.

I just have to share this...
My main character is a mage/thief, and just picked up the special thief ability "Assasination", and does that ever come in handy!
While fighting a bunch of demons, all of my main fighter-types were killed, leaving me with a thief, a mage and my main character. So, I figured it was time to see how Assasination works...
I LOVE it! With one hit he did 114 pts of dmg, blowing up the previously uninjured demon!! A critical hit, and quintuple damage! Using a short word no less :)

For some reason you can't take Edwin's amulet.
While living he refuses to give it to you, and after his death(ahem...if you kill him like I did :D) it just vanishes away.
