Click the TCP/IP option, even if offline, to create and play six of your own
characters. (Note: you'll miss out on a lot of quests, but it's a great way
to replay the game.)
Be picky when choosing quests. Be true to your alignment and don't bite off
more than you can chew, or your reputation will suffer.
The game is 100 percent playable and quite different if you opt to play as an
evil character. For example, instead of freeing the slaves, you are charged
with putting down their uprising.
Stock up on Restoration spells when facing undead. Being "level drained" is
a horrible way to go. Failing that, if you have Raise Dead spells let a level-
drained character die (unless it's your character); once raised he'll be back
to a normal level.

creatures summoned and they will attack the enemy. After they die, rest and
repeat. You will regenerate your spells and hit points but the enemy will not.
This is useful for the sphere battle in the lower level.
Multiple items for the price of one:
Go to any shop. Select a character who has a Gem Bag or Scroll Case. For example,
if you want to buy all the Scrolls Of Protection From Undead from a certain
shopkeeper, have the character with the Scroll Case select the scroll with by
double clicking so you buy more than one Item. Select all the scrolls the
shopkeeper has to offer. The price will reflect every scroll you are going to
buy, Next, go to the character's inventory. Double click on the Scroll Case.
This opens the case for only those items allowed. Go back to the shopkeepers
inventory You will see the multiple scrolls you selected by the small number
in the upper left hand corner of the item. However, the price will reflect only
the cost of one of those items. you Can buy as many of the items as the shopkeeper
has to offer for the price of just one.
If you like going to the taverns and buying drinks to find information for your
journal, you can remove your intoxication by saving and reloading your game,
even after the bartender refuses to give you any more drinks.
When you are in the Irenicus' Dungeon, select the entire party and enable the
CLUAConsole:MoveToArea(""). Imoen should be transported
with your main character and your party, and not be taken by the cowled wizards.
Skip to Underdark:
If you choose to go with Saemon Havarian and end up at the bottom of the ocean,
you can skip directly to the Underdark by pick pocketing the king and getting the
magic rope. You may also want to get the key and get the Rod Of The 3 Kings.

can keep the items you collected. To do this, start a new game and import the
character you want to use. When the screen turns dark, quickly press [Space] to
pause game play before you hear your characters cry of pain. Go into the inventory
screen and drop all the items you want to keep on the ground around you. Return
to the game. After the introduction sequence, when Imoen frees you, you can pick
up all the items you dropped. Note: This may work also with Throne of Bhaal
Create Fighter/Specialist Mage multi-class character:
Submitted by: cheatbook
This trick may not work with the full install option or the expansion set. It may
also work with other class combinations that a mage is part of. Use the following
steps to create a Fighter/Specialist Mage. Choose to creating a character and
select "Human" for the race. For class, choose "Mage" and select the Specialist
Mage you wish to become with a multi-class. Once at the screen where you select
your first level magic spells, back out and continue backing out until you are
down to selecting your gender. Note: Do not select "Start Over". Re-create your
character (same gender, and later alignment) with a race of either Half-elf, Elf,
or Gnome. At class, choose "Multi-class" and select the multi-class Fighter/Mage
(or Fighter/Illusionist). Continue creating your character until you have set your
first level spells. If your spells have a requirement (for example, if you want to
be a Fighter/Necromancer, you would have Larloch's Minor Drain and/or Chill Touch
as required spells), then you know that the trick worked. Finish creating your
character. Note: The paper doll drawing may look like a Thief. If you want to be
a different Fighter/Specialist Mage, click "Start Over" and begin from step one
again with a new Specialist Mage chosen. Not only do Fighter/Specialist Mages
start with more spells, their map animations look like Mages instead of Fighters.
Also, Gnomes do not have to be Fighter/Illusionists. The Specialist Mage you chose
will "overwrite" the "Illusionist" (for example, a Gnome Fighter/Diviner or
Change speed of creatures:

damage, gives 100% magic resistance and the Improved Haste ability, as well as
a -50 point bonus to THAC0 and a -10 bonus to Armor Class. Also, this sword can
be used by any character regardless of class, proficiencies, or any other factor.
The AC bonus is also cumulative if you equip a second one in the character's off

Strong characters at end:

can increase experience, resistance, spell resistance, and armor class among
other things. To do this, you will need to gather all the Tears Of Bhaal. Each
tear will do something different. Save the game (save the character holding
the Tears Of Bhaal). Modify the character and create a new character (import
character from saved game, then import the one holding the Tears Of Bhaal).

eyes around the door. Each time you click, you will gain something. Just before
the doors open and you will meet Irenicus, you will have a short time to still
save your character (export). Try pushing on the door until it opens, but just
before that pause and save your character then reload the game. If you continue
to do this your character will be able to have maximim saving throws, ability
stats (Charisma, Wisdom), AC, and spell resistance.
Use the CLUAConsole:CreateItem("scrlaa") and CLUAConsole:CreateItem("scrla9")
codes to get two scrolls with jumbled letters on them. The "scrlaa" scroll reads:
Aqw vjkpm K co etcba, dwv vjga ycpv aqw vq vjkpm vjcv. K mpqy ugegvu. Mggr vjg
rcpvcnmmpu. Cnycau mggr vjg rcpvcnmmpu.
When decoded, it reads: "You think I am crazy, but they want you to think that.
I know secrets. Keep the pantaloons. Always keep the pantaloons."
The "scrla9" scroll reads:
Qc twrxepssrw evi jvii sj aiewipw. Mrjsvq xli Uyiir, wr xlex wli qmklx wlrr xliq
esec. Livi ai ks 'vsyrh xli qypfivvc fywl. Ks qsroic KS!
When decoded, it reads: "My pantaloons are free of weasels. Inform the Queen, so
that she might shoo them away. Here we go 'round the mulberry bush. Go monkey GO!"
How to learn more spells:
A mage can only have a certain number of spells of any given level in his spell
book. The number of spells he can know is determined by his intelligence score.
For example, a mage with an intelligence of 15 can learn a maximum of 11 spells
of any given level. But what if he already has 11 3rd level spells scribed in
his spell book, and really wants to learn a few more? Simply take a 'Potion of
Genius', or use some other similar magic to temporarily raise his intelligence
score. He is now able to learn as many spells per level as allowed by his new,
temporary score. (As an added bonus, the higher intelligence score will also
make it easier to learn a new spell successfully.) Once the potion wears off,
the newly learned spells will remain in the characters spell book permanently.
Use 'Stoneskin' and 'Iron Skins' more effectively:
The spells 'Stoneskin' (4th Level Wizard spell) and 'Iron Skins' (5th Level
Druid spell) both have similar functions in that they provide the caster with
a protective magical skin for the spells duration. Both spells last a full 12
hours of game time. If you know that you are about to enter a difficult battle,
you can enjoy the benefits of these spells without having to sacrifice a 4th or
5th level combat spell to memorize them.
Have your Druid cast 'Stoneskin' on herself. Now erase that spell from her
spells to be memorized and replace it with something more useful in combat.
Then rest to memorize spells. Resting only takes 8 hours of game time, leaving
you a full 4 hours of protection from the 'Stoneskin' spell, and a fresh spell
to cast where that 'Stoneskin's' shadow would have been.
Enable the "CLUAConsole:CreateItem("killsw01")" code to create a super-powerful
sword. The sword will appear as a Longsword +2, but actually does about 1000 damage,
gives 100% magic resistance and the Improved Haste ability, as well as a -50 point
bonus to THAC0 and a -10 bonus to Armor Class. Also, this sword can be used by any
character regardless of class, proficiencies, or any other factor. The AC bonus is
also cumulative if you equip a second one in the character's off hand.
Use the following trick to defeat Firkraag or any other dragon. Get a Wand Of Cloud
Kill with at least ten charges. Put it in one of your quick item slots. Position
your character with the Wand Of Cloud Kill just out of view of the dragon. Keep all
your other characters at a distance. Keep shooting your Wand Of Cloud Kill in the
direction of the dragon without coming into view of it.
In Chapter 4 "Spellhold", you will start at Brynnlaw. The Sanik and Clair quest is
taken there. In it, you must rescue Clair from the evil Galvenena's Feasthall.
Complete the mission by drugging the guards after enlisting help off the serving
girl and Ellie the cook. Once you have finished the quest, return to Ellie to get
your experience point reward. Talk to her again and she will award the same amount
of experience points to you. Repeat this as many times as desired.
