Dear All

Thanks for all your collective help in getting me this far

I am in Hell now and facing up to Irenicus for what he promises to be the last time.

I have attempted it about 20 times now with no success. I must be missing something.

I have no problem with his pit fiends and Balor. I can clean these up quite easily. My issue is with the Slayer , which I assume is the current form The Big "I "is assuming in this battle. I hammer away at him for what seems to be ages with all sorts of summoned up mates. Using these to keep him busy while I rotate my fighters in and out so that the appropriate healing can be done. I find magic doesn't work well on him and it is often reflected. In the end I die and he is "barely injured" despite the fact that I have done much damage to him and cleaned away all his duplicates.

What can I try to do to finish this anoying bugger up.

As before I seek your help

Yours

David

David,

This should really be an easy battle.

My tactic is to summon the 3 toughest monsters available to my NPC's and (I usually have both Imoen and Nalia) have my mages create Simulacrums. Drink any necessary potions and cast any required protection magics on your party. Place your monsters near where Irenicus's monsters spawn in. Place your mage's clones away from there Iren's monsters spawn, but close enough to cast spells on the bad guys.

NOW once you're completely ready ... THEN perform the little ritual with the tears of Bhaal that spawns in Irenicus.

Have your toughest fighter attack the slayer/Irenicus. Have your monsters and remaining fighters wipe out the enemy monsters. Have your mages cast breeching spells on Irenicus as needed and attack spells on the enemy monsters otherwise. Having one of your mages cast a horrid Wilting spell centered in Irenicus will really help take the starch out of the enemy monsters.

Good Luck!

Impossible, you cant use Time Stop in BG2 without the Experience Cap or a cheat. What I did, is summon alot of mosters and cast haste on everything. Then get Irenicus out of his big door. Then take your party and run to the bottem while your monsters hold off the demons while you run away. Then cast those ghost thingys,(forgot what they were called, Nishryes?) as many of them as you can. Oh ya, Irenicus is supposed to follow you while the other demons are fighting the summoned stuff. Now send all your Nishryes agaisnt the Irenicus, who should be close, if you went to the spot where the stairs are at the bottem of the screen. Then just attack Irenicus with a hasted,potioned, and all that all boosters on a fighter, or a guy you have that can do some melee damage. Thats all I did, but you should add some other tactics(optional) to make it easier.


This only took me 2-3 tries.

If you have ToB installed you can use Timestop

the final battle for me was easy mainly due to ToB makes the game easy
and my chars were high levels.......forget exactly what but a quick timestop and remove protect/lower resist brings him down

Spoiler in the title, spoiler in the second sentance.

Can we delete this please? I personally know of one person who has only just started the game here who wouldn't appreciate this.

Hmm well my view on spoilers is

Too many people on this forum give out way more info than is needed, and often tell how to do a whole quest or are way to specific.

If the title seems to suggest something you are not at then don't read it and you won't have surprises spoilt.

If you can't trust yourself not to look Im afraid nothing can help you.....a long like of "*" after the word spoiler is not gonna stop you looking.....

Yeah, but this is in the title.

"The final battle in hell."

Not everyone likes being told how the game ends.

I agree with the jumping egg
There are still a lot of people here who have NOT played the entire game, and topics with spoilers in them should be tagged appropriately. It's in the Terms of Service.

Tom, you CAN cast Time Stop in SOA without cheating, just not from memorisation. You just use a scroll. [img]smile.gif[/img]
