Dispelling Charmed Glacius in De'Arnise Keep
« on: December 23, 2005, 08:17:20 PM »
If I remember correctly, in an unmodded BG2 Glacius (sp?) can be freed from his enchantment if dominate person is casted on him. Roleplaying-wise, a Dispel magic should work just as well. I seem to recall a tweak/fix to this problem had been suggested on some mod/tweakpack, but I can't seem to recall from where.

Thus, my question: What mod is/was planning on making tweak and has it been released yet?

Thanks.

The problem with Glacias is that he's scripted to have a dispel magic cast on him if he's charmed--unfortinately, the dispel is so low-level that it doesn't work. We fix this in the Fixpack (see ar1303.bcs), but it's not yet publicly available.

Thanks. I take it that I can look forward to the fix in a future G3 tweak pack?

Nope, but whenever they're able to publicly release their fix pack (not tweaks), we'll all hear about it, I'm sure.

As for Glaicas, if you charm him and then cast dispel magic yourself, he'll talk, and simply waiting for the charm to wear off has generally worked for me as well. The only time he attacked again after being successfully charmed, I had directed him to follow the party out of that central room in an attempt to save some time, so I think telling him to do anything other than stand still has a chance to break the friendly script.
