I think this was done before but I can't find it anywhere. There are so many great spells in IWD and HoW. So what is everyone's favourite spell? Do people use the power words that are instant, storm spells like Fire, Ice,or acid storm that do mass damage. Yesterday I actually got Static charge to work which is very effective.

I like so many spells but personally one of my favourite reliable ones is 'Stone Skin'. My bard can continue to play his war song even though he is taking a trashing from enemies or my cleric/mage can go into the thick of battle, cast all those other neat spells without any worries of taking melee hits.

"Static Charge". Without a doubt a fantastic spell once you get to a good enough level. How else can you keep killing without doing anything at all? Other spells you have to direct at a enemy or area, not with this baby. You'll understand my disappointment when I found out that BG:SoA/ToB doesn't have it.

At first I thought Static Charge didn't even work. I used it but it didn't seem to work because I thought the occasional lightning hitting my enemies was coming from one of my characters weapon not the spell. Doh! At the time I didn't realize it was a build-up thing that keep repeating until the spell wore off.

Now that I have gotten it to work it will come in handy in fury mode with the occasional pause.

Well, my favorite spell would probably be Chromatic Orb.
These things are wonderful for first level spells, I never understood why so many people like Magic Missle so much when they can have these things.

Mordenkainen's Force Missiles.
Vitriloic Acid Sphere.

For an electrifying battle in the outdoors, have one Druid constantly cast Static Charge and Call Lightning.

Vitriolic Sphere, and Acid Storm, a great way to trap enemies, as very few things are acid resistant.

My favourite spell is Summoning Monster IV, i cast that spell and send them into dangerous situations, they take out my enemies and i watch. What better way to kill your opponents than to let someone else do it all for you. Guess i'm just lazy.....

Low level favorites:

chromatic orb: after 7th level it paralyses opponents. very useful
acid arrow: troll killer, plus lingering damage as u increase in levels.
web: suprisingly useful & quick with a cast time of only 2!
clerical animate undead: oh yeah... a buffer... my party loves ranged weapons!
clerical hold person: good against them goblins & orcs
slow: half the fun for them!
