I don't know if anyone else has posted this or not, but I have found a great way to deal with Beholders. I equiped my main character, a fighter, with the Cloak of Mirrors, the Shield of Harmony and Boots of Speed. I then turned him loose in the Beholder Caverns and he really cleaned up. He was immune to almost everything the beholders threw at him save for the fear effect, but the Behlders usually ended up dispelling that themselves. The result was that he cleared the caverns all by his lonesome and took no damage at all, save for a little from some charmed drow. Unfortunately, this only works after you have been into the underdark and the fishman city.

BTW: Has anyone else managed to "kill" Saemon before he can escape from the Githyanki and fishmen? I think I got over 14,000 xp for him.

That's true, but not all of us managed to get the special edition with those new items in it.

Now, I can't remember exactly where I got it but I downloaded the necessary files to install the new speciality items that come with the limited edition into the normal copy of BG2. Have a look around on the web, you'll be bound to find them sooner or later. They are seriously worth it.
