Part 1 explains the aspects of the creating the main hero of the game. There is no information in the FAQ that is available in the manual just only my opinion. I beat the game twice and have some experience. Of course, it is possible to spoil the game if for example create the fighter with strength 8, and so here some my advices on creating characters. Part 2 contains some general information about the game and some strategy tips based on my experience. I recommend you to choose D&D Hardcore Rules difficulty level because the lower difficulty levels make the game very easy and boring. Part 3 contains the full walkthrough and secondary quests. It also contains henchman's quests. I also recommend you to read the game manual because it contains a lot of information about NWN rules and creating characters. ----------------------------------------------------------------------- *********************************************************************** ----------------------------------------------------------------------- Part 1 Creating main character 1)gender 2)race 3)class 4)alignment 6)abilities 7)skills 8)feats 9)my characters 10)arcane spells 11)divine spells ----------------------------------------------------------------------- ----------------------------------------------------------------------- 1)Gender I've found that gender has some influence on the NPC dialogs and some game environment . But this part of the character creation is not important. ----------------------------------------------------------------------- 2)Race Here is all races and some my advices about this races. I will not cover the race characteristics because they are available in game manual. ----------------------------------------------------------------------- 1.Human Human is not a bad choice for all classes. Humans does not have real bonuses and no penalties and they are very smart than other races. A human rogue with high intelligence will gain a lot of skill points. Recommended classes: all, but for some classes other races more recommended. Not recommended classes: none. ----------------------------------------------------------------------- 2.Elf Elves are a good choice for wizard and rogue characters, especially ranged weapon fighters, but -2 CON penalty makes them bad melee fighters. Recommended classes: wizard, rogue, ranged weapon fighter classes. Not recommended classes: melee fighter classes. ----------------------------------------------------------------------- 3.Dwarf Dwarves are an excellent choice for fighters and barbarians, but for charismatic characters not recommended. Recommended classes:fighter,barbarian,ranger. Not recommended classes: bards, sorcerers, paladins. Other classes: you can experiment with other classes. ----------------------------------------------------------------------- 4.Halfing Halfing have some thieving bonuses. Recommended classes: rogue(highly recommended). Not recommended classes:fighter,barbarian,paladin,monk. Other classes: you can experiment with other classes. ----------------------------------------------------------------------- 5.Gnome Gnomes are a good choice for spellcasters. Recommended classes:wizard,sorcerer. Not Recommended classes:fighter, barbarian, paladin, monk, ranger. Other classes: you can experiment with other classes. ----------------------------------------------------------------------- 6.Half-elf Half-elves are not so smart as humans, but they gain some nice bonuses and no penalties Recommended classes: all. Not recommended classes: none. ----------------------------------------------------------------------- 7.Half-Orc I did not find in manual any information about this half-orc ability but when I create half-orc fighter character I receive one extra feat as humans receive. Half-Orcs are an excellent choice for stupid chaotic evil fighters who crush everything in this world. Low wisdom for this characters not recommended because mind-affecting spells will nerve you. My henchman was Daelon and Owl's Wosdom was one of my favourite spells because he ran from battle while fighting some evil mummies and other monsters with aura of fear, but his damage make him killing machine. Recommended classes:Barbarian,Fighter. Not recommended: wizard, sorcerer, bard, paladin. Other classes: you can experiment with other classes. ---------------------------------------------------------------------- ====================================================================== 3)Class Here is classes and my advices. Multiclass system I will not cover because I played with single class characters. I will not cover the characteristics which are covered in manual. ----------------------------------------------------------------------- 1.Barbarian This class gains a lot of hit points (HP) per level, more then other classes and with high constitution you can reach wonderful results in gaining HP. Use Rage ability in battles and take Power Attack feat.Good for offensive fighting and exotic weapons feat recommended. Defense is fair but for barbarians with low or medium dexterity armor proficiency (heavy) feat recommended to increase defense. Abilities:high strength(STR) and constitution(CON) recommended,low or medium dexterity(DEX), for human and half-orcs characters medium wisdom(WIS) recommended, you can increase your intelligence (INT) for more skill points but high INT is not recommended,low charisma(CHA). About skills and feats see in Feats and Skills section. ---------------------------------------------------------------------- 2.Bard The maximum bard's spell level is level 6 so bard need CHA 16 to cast level 6 spells. Fair for offensive fighting and fair defense. Heavy armor not recommended because arcane spell failure will be very high in heavy armor. Advices:medium STR, medium or high CON,medium or high DEX,low or medium WIS, low or medium INT, medium or high CHA (I recommend CHA 14+ , at high levels CHA must be 16+). ----------------------------------------------------------------------- 3)Cleric To cast a spell must have WIS 10+spell's level (at the higher levels WIS 19+ recommended in order to cast level 9 spells). Fair for offensive fighting and good defense (high DEX not recommended because heavy armor has some DEX penalties). Advices:medium STR,medium CON,high WIS (16+ ) (I recommend WIS 16),medium INT,low or medium DEX, medium or high CHA (cleric's Turn Undead ability based on CHA modifier and cleric's level ). ----------------------------------------------------------------------- 4)Druid To cast a spell must have WIS 10+spell's level (at the higher levels WIS 19+ recommended in order to cast level 9 spells). Bad in offensive fighting and fair defense (armor proficiency(heavy armor) feat recommended) spells: Divine (druids cannot access some cleric's spells (such as Ressurection), but have some unique spells which cannot be accessed by clerics). Advices: medium STR, medium or high CON,high WIS (16+),low or medium INT,low or medium DEX,low or medium CHA. ----------------------------------------------------------------------- 5)Fighter Good in offensive fighting and good defense (high DEX not recommended) Recommended INT 13, because some useful fighter feats require INT 13. spells:none. Advices:high STR and CON,low or medium WIS,INT 13,low or medium DEX,low CHA. ----------------------------------------------------------------------- 6)Monk Monks are specialists in unarmed strike and during leveling up gain some useful attack and defense bonuses. Bad armor defense, but monk defence bonuses compensate this penalty. Advices:high STR,medium or high CON,medium or high WIS,medium or high DEX,low INT and CHA. ----------------------------------------------------------------------- 7)Paladin To cast spells must have WIS 10+spell's level (max spell level 4) Good in offensive fighting and good defense. Advices:high STR,medium or high CON,WIS 14+,low or medium DEX,low or medium INT,medium or high (very good) CHA. ----------------------------------------------------------------------- 8)Ranger To cast spells must have WIS 10+spell's level (max spell level 4) Good in offence and fair defense. Remember that ranger receive for free some useful two-weapon fighting feats. Advices:medium or high STR,medium or high CON,WIS 14,medium or high DEX,low or medium INT,low CHA. ----------------------------------------------------------------------- 9)rogue Fair offence(special assasin's weapons will be useful ,sneak attack is very good and not good armor defence (recommended high DEX). skill points per level:8+INT modifier(!!!) (VERY GOOD) Sneak Attack(extra damage (+1d6 damage at 1-st level and +1d6 damage every two levels), some creatures are immune to sneak attack) Advices:medium STR,medium or high CON,low or may be medium WIS,high DEX,low or medium INT(medium or high INT is not a bad idea),low or medium CHA. Human rogue will be smart one but halfing or elf is a good choice too. ----------------------------------------------------------------------- 10)sorcerer to cast spell must have CHA 10+spell's level (at the higher levels CHA 19 recommended) Bad offence and bad armor defense (using armor feats not recommended because spell failure penalties) Light armor is not a bad idea. Few skill points. Special Abilities: does not need to prepare spells every day unlike wizard and can cast spells multiply times, but cannot memorize spells from scrolls to the spellbook and has lesser spell slots than wizard, gain new spells when leveling up and can get rid of useless spells when leveling up. Advices:low STR,medium or high CON,low or medium WIS,medium or high DEX,medium INT,high CHA16+. ----------------------------------------------------------------------- 11)wizard to cast spell must have INT 10+spell's level (at the higher level INT 19 recommended) Very bad offense and bad armor defense. Spells and only spells. For this class high INT required to cast high level spell, first it seems that wizards gain few skill points, but high INT compensate this disadvantage (my character human wizard with INT 23 at level 20 gained 9 skill points). special abilities: wizard specialist(while creating new wizard character you can become specialist in some magic school, it has some advantages in chosen magic school and disadvantages because every magic school has prohibited school of magic). Wizard specialist gains one additional slot for each spell level but cannot cast the spells from prohibited school of magic. need to prepare spells every day and can cast each spell once per day, contain more spell slots than sorcerer, can memorize spells from scrolls and get rid of useless spells from memory at any time. Use some metamagic feats. Advices:low STR,medium or high CON,low or medium WIS,medium or high DEX,high INT(16+),low CHA. ----------------------------------------------------------------------- ======================================================================= 4) alignment There are 9 alignments in Neverwinter Nights: lawful good, lawful neutral,lawful evil,neutral good,true neutral,neutral evil,chaotic good,chaotic neutral,chaotic evil. Remember that your actions in game can change your alignment and if you break your class alignment restriction you cannot gain new levels,for example nonlawful good paladin cannon gain levels until he would become lawful good again. Alignment influence on NPC's reaction and can be changed during the game with your actions. For example, if you have lawful(85) good(60) alignment and then some evil action decrease your good alignment towards 10 and your alignment will be lawful(85) neutral(50). I recommend you to choose alignment according to your future actions(good or evil,lawful or chaotic). ----------------------------------------------------------------------- ======================================================================= 5)abilities 1.Strength With higher strength you can do much damage in melee combat and can carry more items in inventory. High STR recommended for melee fighters. 2.Dexterity DEX modifier adds to AC and Reflex saving throws,range weapon fighters need high DEX. High DEX is strongly recommended for rogues.Low DEX recommended for characters who wear heavy armor and don't use ranged weapons. 3.Constitution High CON increase your number of hit point and hit point you gained per level. CON modifier adds to your fortitude saving throw (very useful) and spellcasters with low constitution can easily be interrupted while casting spells.Low CON not recommended for all classes. 4.Intelligence Number of skill points you gain per level depends on INT modifier. INT is very important for wizard class: with high INT wizard can cast more spells, their spells are more powerful and it is very hard to resist this spells(INT is added to your spell DC when enemy attempts saving throw against spell). Strongly recommended for wizards.Low INT is not recommended for characters who gain few skill points per level. 5.Wisdom WIS modifier adds to Will saving throw. WIS is very important for clerics and druids, and important for rangers and paladins. Low wisdom not recommended for halfings,humans,half-orcs(I recommend 10+). I've found that with high WIS some NPC dialogs appear with 'Insight' option which are not available for characters with lower WIS. 6.Charisma CHA is very important for sorcerers and paladins,important for bards,clerics and monks. It influence cleric's and paladin's turn undead ability. I think that CHA is useless for other classes , especially for evil characters(not sorcerers). ----------------------------------------------------------------------- ======================================================================= 6)Skills I will not describe each skill because you can read their description during the game. I describe only my opinion about all skills. You need only one skill point to increase your class skill else you need two skill points. 1)Animal empathy Accesible only by druids and rangers.Recommended for druids and rangers. 2)Concentration Strongly recommended for spellcasters (especially wizards,sorcerers,clerics,druids). 3)Disable Trap Recommended for all characters because there are a LOT OF traps in the game and some traps damages you greatly and can kill you instantly. 4)Discipline Not bad for melee fighters classes 5)Heal Recommended for all characters exept clerics 6)Hide Recommended for stealth characters especially rogues. 7)Listen Useless skill 8)Lore Useless, because you can identify items with traders. 9)Move silently Recommended for stealth characters, especially rogues. 10)Open lock Not recommended for wizards and sorcerers and characters with high STR,because lock can be opened with spells or bashed with weapon. Recommended for rogues and bards. 11)Parry Recommended for melee fighter classes but this skill is not so important for them 12)Perform Bard unique skill.Increase as high as possible. 13)Persuade Very interesting skill. I recommend for all characters because it makes game more interesting. This skill works in conversation. With this skill you can purchase good items, more gold from NPC and access some NPC quests. 14)Pick Pocket Recommended for bards and rogues. 15)Search Recommended for all classes exept wizards,sorcerers and bards,because they have find traps spell. 16)Set traps May be for rogues but I thing it is useless. 17)Spellcraft Strongly recommended for spellcasters. It helps them to identify spell and perform counter spell. 18)Spot Useless skill 19)Taunt Useless.May be for evil characters. 20)Use magic device Only for rogues and bards. Very useful. ----------------------------------------------------------------------- ======================================================================= 7)Feats Some advices about feats. 1.Alertness Useless 2.Ambidexterity(requires DEX 15+) Good for two weapon fighters 3.Armor Proficiency (light,medium,heavy) Some classes have this feat as default. 4.Called shot (requires base attack bonus +1 or higher) Good for fighter classes 5.

I chose D&D Hardcore Rules difficulty level. ----------------------------------------------------------------------- Character 1: gender:male Race:human Class:wizard(generalist) alignment:lawful good abilities: STR 8 DEX 14 CON 14 WIS 10 INT 18 CHA 8 skills: concentration +4 disarm trap +2 heal +4 lore +4 persuade +2 search +2 spellcraft +4 feats: default race and class feats combat casting spell penetration familiar: panther While playing this character my henchman was Daelan Red Tiger(Half-Orc Barbarian). At the end of the game I killed Morag Queen with one reloading. My favoutite spells were chain lighting, Meteor Swarm (good against crowd of enemies),Premonition,Protections from spells,Greater Stone skin (good protection spells),Greater Planar Binding( celestian avenger is very good in battle),Finger of Death (good against nonundead strong enemies),mass haste(good in critical moments),Gate(EXELLENT , before using this spell it is strongly recommended to cast protection from evil),ShapeChange (good if all alies are dead),Tenser's Transformation (use it until you reach Shapechange spell),Animate dead (good in the middle of the game),Dismissal(good against summoned enemies),hold monster(use it on melee fighers who attacks you),Time Stop(VERY VERY GOOD),Improved Invisibility(use it always),Resist elements(useful at the beginning of the game),lighting bolt,flame arrow,fireball(use it always),find traps(good),magic missile(use it always),burning hands(effective at the beginning of the game against the crowd of enemies),owl's wisdom(increase wisdom). ----------------------------------------------------------------------- Character 2: gender:female race:human class:cleric alignment:lawful evil abilities STR 14 DEX 8 CON 14 WIS 16 INT 12 CHA 12 skills: concentration +4 disarm trap +2 persuade +4 spellcraft +4 feats: default race and class feats extra turning toughness domains: air (turn undead ability works on elementals and I gain some useful offense Arcane spells) death (summoned avatar and some good death Arcane spells) Playing this character was not difficult.I killed queen Morag with no reloadings. My henchman was Tony (rogue), Grimgnow (monk) and other henchmans in some locations. My hero was equiped with powerful morning star and wearing heavy dragon scale armor. At the end of the game my AC was 39 so queen Morag can't hit me with melee weapon. At level 19 I've change my class to rogue. This helped me to gain sneak 1d6 damage attack and skill points bonus at level 20. I've also increase my DEX with rogue's ring. Character 3: gender:female race:elf class:rogue alignment:chaotic neutral abilities STR 12 DEX 18 CON 12 WIS 12 INT 14 CHA 8 skills: disarm trap +4 hide +4 move silently +4 open lock +4 persuade +4 pick pocket +4 search +4 set trap +4 spot +4 use magic device +4 feats: default race and class feats disarm When I achieved level 11 then I change my class to ranger. So at the end of the game my character was rogue(11)/ranger(9). At level 3 I chose weapon finesse feat and always used small weapons and long bow. My character was balanced melee and ranged warrior. When I chose improved disarm feat then I became a really good disarmer (I disarmed Loxar,Calik,Desther in chapter 1, Gorkan,Vardoc in chapter 2, high captains in Luskan and Aribeth in Chapter 4). When I became a ranger I used two-weapon tactics in melee and strong long bow with magical damage arrows as a ranged weapon. I created a fine dagger with Daze 75%/round effect in Chapter 1 and used it always. Few enemies can resist daze(undead, golems, immune to mind-affecting) so when the enemy became dazed I damaged the enemy with sneak attack (6d6 damage at level 11). In chapter 3 I created a powerful mace with the damage and attack bonus against undead . My AC was 33 at the end of the game. With rogue sneak attack and ranger's attack bonuses and two-weapon feats I had no problems when fighting melee fighters (exept undead and golems). I've killed queen Morag with no reloadings (first I killed two powerful Morag's lizards then I destroyed the trap and killed the Protector from Sword with Aribeth's Sword (my magic device skill was 16) and dagger with daze effect). I also used disarm and improved disarm feats with tough enemies. At level 10 I chose very useful crippling strike rogue feat. As a ranger I chose racial bonus feat against giants and lizardmen. My henchmans were Linu and Grimgnow. ----------------------------------------------------------------------- 10) Arcane spells In this section there is only my opinion and strategy in using all arcane magic spells. Bards also use Arcane magic but I will not cover some bard spells which are not accessible by wizard and sorcerer. Spells: Level 0 spells (cantrips): 1. Daze (Enchantment) Useless 2. Light (Evocation) Useless 3. Ray of Frost(Conjuration) Use it to kill some weak enemy with "near death" hit points 4. Resisatnce (Abjuration) Useless Level 1 spells: 1.

Ghostly visage (illusion) Use it as a defense spell when fighting some tough enemies until you reach more higher spells. 9.

You can use it to counterspell some powerful spell. 7. Greater spell breach (Abjuration) Always use this on tough enemies to decrease their magic resistance 8. Greater Stone Skin (Transmutation) Use this spell until Premonition spell 9. Legend Lore (Divination) Forget 10.Mass Haste (Enchantment) Use it when fighting a lot of strong enemies 11.Planar Binding (Conjuration) I prefer Animate Dead spell because of spell duration 12.Shades (Illusion) Not so useful 13.Summon creature 6 (Conjuration) I prefer other summoning spells 14.Tenser's Transformation (Transmutation) Use it to fight the enemies.

Energy drain (Necromancy) Useless 3. Gate (Conjuration) The best summoning spell in the game. It has small duration.

Try to cast some offensive or defensive spells while the time is stopped. 11.Wail of the Banshee (Necromancy) I prefer to leave slots for other spells 12.Weird (Illusion) Not bad.

The Abjuration school is the best defensive school magic. Conjuration is the best for summoning spells. Necromancy contains some useful death spells but a lot of necromancy spells are useless. Illusion also has some useful and useless spells. Enchantment and Divination are the weakest spell schools but Divination contains powerful Premonition spell and Enchantment contains Protection from spells spell. Transmutation is the most universal spell school because it contains some good transformation, offensive, defensive and summoning spells and some very useful Level 2 spells. *********************************************************************** 11) Divine spells In this section I'll describe divine spells usefulness.

Remember that healing spells damage undead. Druids have less healing and blessing spells but they receive some useful defensive and offensive spells. Paladins are more close to cleric's spells and rangers are more close to druidic spells. ----------------------------------------------------------------------- *********************************************************************** ----------------------------------------------------------------------- Part 2 General Information and strategy Stone of Recall: Use the Stone of Recall in critical situations. In some areas you cannot use Stone of Recall so be careful (such areas are rare). Hit Points Tip: When you gain and accept new level then your number of hit points increases. It depends on your hit dice and CON modifier. For example if you are a cleric with CON 14 then every level you add 1d8+2 hit points where 1d8 is your class hit dice and +2 is your CON modifier. But 1d8 is a random value (which means the random number between 1-8) so for example you can gain 8+2=10 hit points or 6+2=8 hit points. So I recommend you to see how many hit points you gain before accepting new level and if you don't want to accept this value you can cancel leveling up. Click again on level up button and the value will change. With this tip my cleric character had more then 200 hit points at the level 20. Every level my cleric gained 8+2+1=11 hit points, where 8 is a maximum 1d8 value, +2 CON modifier, +1 toughness feat. Heavy Armor tip: If you are wearing some heavy armor then there is no reason to inscrease your DEX more then 12-13 because of AC DEX penalty. If you have high DEX then there is no reason to wear heavy armor. AC tip: If you want to increase your AC as high as possible then increase your DEX to 12-13, wear heavy armor, use one handed weapon and shield, search some items which increase your AC. I found a good shield which totally increase my AC to 10 (usable only by lawful characters) and I found a good heavy dragon armor (totally AC to 11). Skill points Tip: Don't waste your skill points on non class skills (may be exept disarm trap and persuasion skill) and develop your class skills. Feats tip: Choose your feats carefully and wisely because you can get only one feat every 3 levels (exept some classes feats abilities). Choose your feat according to your class development. Wizard tips: Rest often and use your advantage of memorizing spells in different situations . Always cast some defensive long duration spell (such as Stone Skin spell or Greater Stone Skin spell) and summon some creature (for example Animate dead spell). Familiar is useful at the beginning of the game but at the end of the game your familiar is very weak. Create some powerful or not so
powerful items in the magic labs (Chapter 2,3). Don't use melee weapons in battle, equip your character with some ranged weapon. Combine damage resistance, damage absorbtion and saving throw increase spells. Cast some protection spells on your henchman and summoning creatures. Increase your INT as high as possible. With very high INT few enemies can resist your spells. Forget about AC and attack bonuses. Choose Metamagic Empower spell feat and use some middle level offensive spells with this feat (for example Fireball spell). Use Bull's Strength on your fighter henchman or summoned creature. Use Bull's strength on yourself to increase your inventory weight. Increase magically your CON in order to decrease your Concentration failure. If you have low mind saving throw then increase your WIS magically (Owl's wisdom). Use Dismissal spell on summoned enemy creatures. Use dispel magic spells on enemy wizards and try to counter spell with some powerful wizard spells. Increase Concentration and Spellcraft skill as high as possible. If your defense is destroyed and enemies attack you then run from the battle or cast some good defense spell. Prepare a lot of offense spells but don't forget about defense and summoning spells. Forget about armor (exept may be light armor - 10-20% failure) because you can fail your attempt to cast the spell while wearing armor (Still spell feat can change your strategy). Cleric Tips: Use your advantage of healing spells and prepare a lot of healing spells. Don't concentrate on offensive spells but concentrate on defensive spells and summoning spells. Sometimes use some offensive spells but not so often. Combine your melee fighting with spellcasting. Increase your AC as high as possible. Use melee weapons in battle and increase your concentration skill. Increase your STR and CON with some spells. Use turn undead ability when fighting undead. Increase your CHA when using turn undead ability. Increase your attack and saving throws(use Protection from Evil and Bless spells). Choose clerics domains carefully. I recommend air or stone domain. Air domain has some good offensive spells and stone domain has some good defensive spells and you can use turn undead ability on elementals (there are a lot of elementals in some areas (chapter 2,3)). Remember that arcane magic has more strong offensive and defensive spells then divine so don't forget about melee fighting in some situations. Rogue Tips: Increase your DEX as high as possible. Choose weapon finesse feat as quick as possible. Use small melee and ranged weapons in battle. Increase your magic device skill in order to use some class/race/alignment restricted items. Use light armor with no or less armor DEX penalty (Mirror or Shadow armor is good). Create some small weapon in Chapter 1 with daze/confuse/sleep effect. Your great enemies are enemies that are immune to sneak attack. Find some weapons with bonuses against undead and Constructs and use this weapons against them. Recover the traps and use or sell them. Find and equip some item with Immunity: mind-affecting effect. Equip some item with Haste effect. Remember that you can use your sneak attack with ranged weapon too. Use arrows or bolts with magical additional damage. Increase your STR for more damage. Try to use some scrolls with defensive spells while fighting with tough enemies. Choose crippling strike feat at level 10. Increase your AC to 30 or more. When fighting some mages then before fight choose stealth mode and sneak to the mage to fight him before he uses some defensive spells. You can also try to kill some spellcasters but choose Point Blank Shot feat. Find some item with dispel magic effect. Ranged weapons with magic arrows are more effective against constructs and undead then small melee weapons (with no real bonuses against undead or constructs). Battle Tips: Remember that all enemy's summoned creatures or familiars will disappear if you kill the enemy who summoned the creature or familiar. Use healing potions or spells if your hit points are low then 1/2 of total HP. Hire a henchman and always travel with him. Complete henchman quests to retrieve their items which increase certain attributes and has some good effects. Concentrate on one enemy not on all. If the enemy is strong then it would be good if this enemy will attack your henchman first. Use different tactics with different kind of enemies, learn their weaknesses (for example Fire Giants are very weak to the cold damage and with cold damage spell or weapon you can kill them quickly). Some powerful fighters are very weak to the mind-affecting spells. Remember that you can quickly destroy enemy wizard's defense with some powerful weapon or dispel magic spell. Kill enemy archers and spellcasters first then melee fighters. Secondary quests: Don't forget about secondary quests because some quests are highly rewarded and some quests cross the main quest. Increase your persuasion skill to access some secondary quests. Respawn ability: If you are killed then you automatically respawn in the nearest Temple of Tyr losing some gold and experience points. I recommend you to load the previous game and save the game very often. EXP tip: In chapter 2 there is a place with strange pillar (Charwood: Haunted Forest) where the right password (NETHER SHALL RULE) is required. If you enter the wrong password then you should fight 2 skeletons warriors. This process you can repeat to earn some EXP. This is good for multiclass characters with EXP penalty. Random item tip: This is a very useful trick. Some chests or other places contain a useful random item. If you discover such chest then reload the last save, then go to this chest again and DON'T open it (just disarm or unlock/destroy). Then save the game and open the chest to retrieve some useful item. If the item is useless for you then reload the previous save and open the chest again. The chest will contain another random useful item. You can repeat this trick again but remember that once you see the contents of the chest then the items in the chest will be the same if you open this chest secondary, thirdly and so on. The random item is generated when you open the chest first time. In chapter 2 in Luskan: Host tower in the hall where Aribeth and Maugrim there is a crate (middle crate) with some useful magical random item. ----------------------------------------------------------------------- *********************************************************************** ----------------------------------------------------------------------- Part 3 Walkthrough 1)Prelude 2)Chapter 1 a)City Core b)Peninsula District c)Blacklake District d)Docks District e)Beggar's Nest f)Finale g)Henchmans and their quests (all quests completed) 3)Chapter 2 a)Port Llast b)North (North Road) c)East (East Road, Neverwinter Wood) d)South (South Road, Charwood) e)Luskan and Host tower f)Henchmans and their quests (all quests completed) 4)Chapter 3 a)Beorunna's Well b)Coldwood c)Moonwood d)Fort Ilkard e)Henchmans and their quests (all quests completed) 5)Chapter 4 Final Battle ----------------------------------------------------------------------- *********************************************************************** ----------------------------------------------------------------------- 1)Prelude Academy Training Your main quest is to comlete the training in the Neverwinter Academy.

To complete melee training speak with Dandy in this hall about training and then hit Dandy, for ranged weapons speak with Hewwet in this hall and then hit the target with some ranged weapon from long distance then speak again with fighter master to complete training.

To complete divine training you should kill skeleton with turn undead ability and heal injured commoner in this room then speak again with master. Bards can choose arcane, fighter or rogue training. After completing one of the training speak with guard near locked door in order to go through the door and then go to the hall (next location) and speak with Lady Aribeth.

Creator Race Ruins : Past locations: same as in present time but the environment differs Go north-east and speak with Lokar. He is a slave leader. Retrieve his ring. You need this ring to persuade the slave workers to weak the golems. You can also persuade this workers without Lokar's ring. Go west near riddle of light and speak with slave worker (translation amulet must be equiped). Persuade him to weak the golem. Then choose golem weakness. You can choose fire, cold, blunt weapons, slashing and piercing weapon weakness. Choose it wisely because golems will be vulnerable only to the chosen weakness. For example when I played as a wizard I chose fire weakness and lately killed golems with fireball and flame arrow spells. For fighter or rogue classes fire and cold are not recommended. To unlock the south gates you'll need to solve three riddle puzzle. But you cannot solve this puzzle in the past. Search the old one defenses scroll in the riddle of light room.

Return to ruins and go north-east to the riddle of sound entrance. Speak with another slave worker and choose weakness for another golem.

Kill golem (golem must be vulnerable to the some kind of damage which you chose in the past from the last slave worker). Take golem key from his body and unlock the gates to the riddle of smoke. There is a smokey brazier,alchemist's apparatus and some painting. The puzzle is not difficult: Take red, blue and yellow powders from alchemist's apparatus. Put this powders in the brazier in following order: red-yellow, blue-red, yellow-blue. If everything is ok then this powders will dissapear and the riddle of smoke have been completed. Your journal must be updated after completing the riddle. 2)Riddle of sound Go north-east and kill another golem. Take his key and unlock the gates to the riddle of sound. Kill odd one bodak champion and search his body for fairy bottle. Use this bottle in the inventory to free the sprite from bottle and repeat her actions with hongs to complete the riddle of sound. There are 4 hongs in the room: North-west hong (4) North-east hong (1) South-west hong (3) South-east hong (2) The right combination is 2,1,3,4,3,1,4,2. 3)Riddle of light Go to the riddle of light and kill the last golem. Take his key and unlock the gates to the riddle of light. Take purple,orange and green gems from pool of swirling. The puzzle is easy: you must press color gem in each pool of primary colors and then put the gem from poll of swirling to the each pool of secondary colors. If the placed gem is the combination of the primary pools colors then the riddle will be solved. For example press red and blue gems in the pools of primary colors. The combination of red and blue color is a purple color. So split the purple gems in the inventory and place one purple gem in each pool of secondary colors to solve the puzzle. If all three riddles are completed then go south and unlock the door of three. Fight Balor Lord. Take his key and unlock the altar. Take the last Word of Power and speak with Haedraline.

Speak with Lord Nasher and Aarin Gend. It seems that Neverwinter city is under siege by Aribeth's and Maugrim's army. They occupy some Neverwinter regions exept City Core. Go downstairs to the castle prison and speak with Haedraline. She tells you about Maugrim's Word of Power and you need to retrieve this word of power from Maugrim himself in order to travel to the source stone portal where is lizard queen Morag.

Then you can speak with her and persuade her to surrender and go to the prison or kill her. If you kill her then search her body for her sword.

So if you are a paladin then you can kill some citizens in the City Core until your alignment changes to evil then equip this sword. You can also use this sword if your magic device skill is 10+. The description on this sword tells that you possessed this sword from Aribeth's corpse but I didn't kill Aribeth I simply disarmed (improve disarm feat) her with my rogue/ranger character (developers forgot this factor). Aribeth is not an easy enemy because she heals herself and can cast spells and has a good sword. When I've played as a cleric my AC was 38 and Aribeth was not a difficult opponent. Kill her as quick as possible. Fighting Maugrim: Find and speak with Maugrim Korothir. Then fight and kill him. Search his chest for Word of Power. Maugrim is more easy fight for spellcasters but he is also very tough (more than Aribeth). He casts Time Stop spell at the beginning of the fight and ressurects two flesh golems. So Greater dispel spell recommended to dispel some effects from Maugrim. He also heals himself and casts some powerful offensive level 7-9 spells such as Meteor Swarm. Beware his spells. When you kill him return to castle Never. Castle Never: Go downstairs and speak with Haedraline. Then go to the castle cavern and put the word of power on word of power pedestal. Enter source stone. Source Stone Sanctuary: Speak with Asheera and retrieve her amulet. This amulet is very good against lizards so I recommend you to equip this amulet. Fight lizards and enter the portal in the centre. Guardian lair: Kill two guardian dragons and search their bodies for guardian keys. Unlock the gates. Then before entering cave I recommend you to rest, to prepare necessary spells and take some potions because in the next area you can't rest and can't use stone of recall. Then enter caves. Inner Sanctum: Listen the dialog between Morag and lizards. Kill lizards and search the body of the one of the lizards for the key. Unlock the door and prepare for final battle with queen Morag. Speak with Morag and prepare for fight. Don't try to fight her now because she is invincible. She is protected by her followers and her followers are protected by the trap. You can't access her protectors because of a trap. First you must bash the statue near the trap to destroy the trap. Kill some powerful enemies. There are 8 Morag protectors: protector against mace (blunt weapons), sword , the lessers (ranged weapons), venom (some poison damage), frost, spear , storm and flame. Each protector is vulnerable to his kind of protection, for example the protector against fire is vulnerable to the fire damage and can be killed by some fire spells, and for example if you killed the protector against fire then queen Morag will be vulnerable to the fire. Same with the other protectors. When I have played as a cleric I killed the protector against mace with my morning star and then killed queen Morag with this weapon. Queen Morag is very powerful enemy and can cast some powerful wizard (Time Stop spell) and healing spells. Kill Morag and enter portal. Speak with Haedraline and enter portal to complete the game.
