Alright now i opened my eyes to different weapons them katana's long swords and staves i came to the shocking conclusion that BG2 has a lot of good weapons and I'm kinda lost
And I'm sure a lot of others are aswell
So i was gonna make a small poll and becoz this is a specific BG2 poll it's not in the polls section (anyone still reading?)
So what is your favorite weapon Top 10?

My opinions? Well, FWIW, I've got a Top 5.

Best melee weapons statistically:

1. Crom Faeyr
2. Celestial Fury
3. Blackrazor
4. Vorpal
5. Soul Reaver & Holy Avenger

Best in terms of usability in the game:

1. Crom Faeyr
2. Celestial Fury
3. Vorpal
4. Warblade
5. Impaler

Notice I've left out Blackrazor, Carsomyr and Soul Reaver from my second list due to the usability restrictions in the game. I've also excluded staves like the Staff of the Magi and the Staff of Power as they are less "melee" weapons than wizardly aids. I've also excluded Drizzt's weapons.

Feel free to disagree - opinions are like a-holes - everyone's got one.

Hey, did you know that the Flame Tongue is actually a +4 "to hit" weapon?

Crom Faeyr also hits as a +4 weapon. The upgraded Mace of Disruption hits as a +4 weapon vs Undead and makes them 'pop'

flame tounge is 1D8 +1, +2 vs. regenerating creatures, +3 vs. cold/fire creatures, +4 vs. undead.

crom fayer is very powerful, but you have to give up all the belts of strength and isnt really worth it.

And the best weapon will be flail of ages, especiallt in ToB with extra heads.

Flame Tongue is +4 TO HIT as I said earlier, Dramnek. From a damage modifier point of view it is as you say.

Flame Tongue +4

There was a time before Neverwinter was warm and before the great Anauroch was dry...or so it is said. Few relics remain to prove such an age existed, and fewer still have an identifiable purpose. "The Burning Earth" seems straightforward enough -it burns a victim with magical fire, and a cryptic rune seems to suggest that the power comes from the ground itself- but whomever constructed it remains a mystery. It looks a perfectly serviceable weapon, but something in the balance or grip is...wrong. It strains the forearm a touch, and does not fit the hand just right. It doesn't seem to hurt a warrior's performance, aside from the nagging doubt that the blade was not made for him...or any other humanoid.

Though the sword's blade is a focused, solid mass of fire, a hint of real fire will still be required to kill trolls once they are downed.

STATISTICS:

Always considered to be of +4 enchantment when determining what it can hit.
Damage: 1D8 + 2, +2 vs. regenerating creatures, +3 vs. cold/fire creatures, +4 vs. undead
Damage type: slashing
Weight: 4
Speed Factor: 3

I do love the combination of the pixy prick and bone dagger. I like a dual thief-fighter with 2 daggers in hand. with grand master of course. There is the Fire tooth dagger, 2d4+3 for a dager is like a bastard blade +3 but it is a throwing boomerang weapon also! My pc can throw it 10 times in a round with improved haste! Damn, Jarlaxle will be jalous !

Maybe it's because I hate drows more than I hate Humans - Jarlaxle to Entreri
