And yet NONE of that can prepare me for a walk-in blast with a 9 level spell, courtesy of the gnome in Valygar's second floor, when i went there to get the coordinates for umar hills.
I was attacked by a spell, whose level alone was higher than my character's
My mind - it is blown.
I did not install smarter mages, as reading through the readme, i found it ridicilous that all of the mages, would autmatically know to dispel you, renew their own buffs, and generally give you the finger..
The readme sold the SCS2 as "plays fair, doesnt cheat" but so many of the components betray that statement. Like casters starting buffed? All notable mage opponents already have scripted instant casts at start + a variety of sequencers. Also, everyone magically hanging on to just the right potions to drink as soon as you approach? I cant get around without keldorn, as any muppet with a backstab multiplier has more invisiblity potions, than the guys from Chosen of Cyric.
My beef here is that while i installed the tougher, vampires, mind flayers, githyanki, dragons, trolls, irenicus ETC, i Specifically did not install the smarter mages, because it seemed like an exercise in masochism, which i wanted to avoid, and apparently, I was unsuccessful.
So which component could it be that makes no-name-gnome fire off a meteor swarm and his chain contingencies as soon as i climb the stairs, before the dialog is initiated?
