  • Item_Upgrade

    The Item Upgrade Mod Pack allows Cromwell and Cespenar to upgrade more items for you. Half of them are conveniences, the other half try to prop up weapon categories that are "weak" by comparison (e.g., maces and clubs).

    There already are plenty of mods for this. SoD2BG2 does a bit, bringing IWD longbows like Sseth into BG2 (basically a longbow Tuigan), and an upgrade to the SoD Bow of the Banshee (+4, 20% chance of 4d4 damage party-safe banshee wail on hit). The Item Upgrade Mod has Teleomortis, a +4 infinite ammo bow (it also has throwing spears, which are cool). It also lets you upgrade the ToB infinite quivers to +3, which helps slings/xbows/shortbows as well, but is still useful to longbows.

  • SoD-to-BG2EE-Item-Upgrade

    Imports more Siege of Dragonspear items into logical (to me at least) locations in BG2:EE during the Shadows of Amn campaign. They are attainable in a variety of ways – quest rewards, drops from enemies killed, shops, and containers.
