|Gamebanshee has posted a preview of the Baldur's Gate II expansion Throne of Bhaal, which may not be the final chapter after all (-> news post):|
Just what sort of enhancements can you expect to see in the expansion? First of all, there’s a whole new mage kit called the Wild Mage. Secondly, certain classes have had their previous abilities altered, such as the Wizard Slayer now being able to obtain 84% of base magic resistance. Additionally, all classes can now obtain either special abilities or quest spells as they reach some of the higher levels. The expansion also adds entirely new monsters, some being enhanced versions of previous monsters, while others are completely new. And what’s an expansion without adding more spells and equipment (which ToB does generously)? Now add the fact that the experience point cap has been increased to eight million experience points (allowing most classes to reach level 40) and you have all the enhancements you need to bring your Baldur’s Gate II gaming to a whole new level.
