Celsestial Fury and Carsomyr are NOT overrated. They are praised for good reason.

carsomyr sucks a little because its paldins only and celestial fury is one of the greatest weapons in BG2.

it's furies rep of being "the greatest weapon in the game" that make sit so over rated. w/o either item the game is not any harder i haven't missed either item in games where i don't use it (or the holy avenger for that matter)

items like the mace o' disruption on the other hand are irreplaceable.

I might draw fire...but I would have to say the crom fraeyr(sp). I use this weapon and it is great, but I think the parts outweigh the whole on this one. If you don't put it together you can distribute the gaunlets of ogre power and the girdle to players and I think all and all this would be more advantageous b/c like on my character I would like to use a more powerful weapon (damage wise) but if I do, I lose the STR gain from the crom fraeyr. Just my 2 cents

The Avenger has its uses and overall, it has helped me a few times. I still have yet to use Celestial Fury, so I have no idea of its supposed greatness.

A question, If Carsomyr was useable by any class, would people still play paladins? Probably, but not as many as there would be if it remained a paladin only weapon. You could call Carsomyr a perk to the class.

Heh, I will always be a die-hard Sorcerer and Paladin player!

WooHoo!

If not a Sorcerer, then a Paladin.

Flail of the Ages, by far. I just don't *ever* use this weapon. It's slow and always loses out in my party to more powerful weapons (and proficiencies).

After I'm done with Nalia's Keep, I rarely ever use it...

Bow of Gesen is a close second. That is the slowest friggin' bow I've ever seen and most enemies just shake off the electrical damage. I'd go with Tansheron's bow every time for a short bow.

------------------

Now where did I leave that doughnut?!
