Baldur's Gate II: Shadows of Amn

Baldur's Gate II: Shadows of Amn Tips

One thing that you will want to do when you play this game is the completion of everything. The amount of gold you need and such does not matter, you will want to do every available quest in the entire game before moving onto Spellhold.

The reasons for it go on, but the main ones are:

Money - While you don't have a desperate need for it, money can get you a lot of things, from loose lips to battle ready equipement. If you have enough, you can easily get what you need without having to resort to other means.

Experience - A lot of guys you are going to face are tougher than what you had to handle before. The higher the level your characters are, the more they can handle, especially if they have additions that are increased along the way.

Knowledge - Game knowledge on your part is essential. The more quirks in your characters you find, especially how they work together, the better you can use them to your advantage. Make sure that each and every one of these little guys has their stats imprinted in your mind, so instead of sending a cleric with high HP into battle, you send the fighter with slightly less HP but a higher defense.

Respect - Respect can gain you a lot of things, I feel. Don't forget that.

Items - There are tons of items, let alone people, in this game that have magical propeties or shattering stats that would be immensely useful in any persons hands. Letting the chance of using these pass by is a danger to yourself.

So go on, and complete the game. It's worth it.
