Baldur's Gate II: Throne of Bhaal
Released in June 2001, Baldur's Gate II: Throne of Bhaal concludes the saga begun by the original Baldur's Gate and continued in Baldur's Gate II. Chaos grips the land as the remaining Bhaalspawn wage all-out war upon each other to claim their birthright as the new Lord of Murder. Explore vast new dungeons, gain incredible new powers and find such ridiculous amounts of high-level loot that even +3 swords become junk items — or ignore all of it and do a speedrun instead.

Character Creation:

I chose Elf because I think they have a slightly better "Find Hidden Doors" % than the other races. My manual fell apart a long time ago (don't leave it in your car on a hot day) so I was just guessing. It doesn't matter much really.

Sorcerer is my class. The ability to cast multiple different high level wizard spells is crutial for getting through these fights quickly. I can't see this being done as fast with any other class.

Alignment only matters a few times in the game, and even then it's minor. I chose a good alignment to be able to talk the cleric into giving me a key in Saradush.

Abilities have no effect on my game other than wisdom (needs to be 14 or more for my limited wishes).

Spells I needed will be listed here. Others are just filler.

If this area was the only thing stopping DAMURDOC from single-segmenting, then a single-segment run may be just around the corner.

I plan on more speedruns in the future, which may or may not include single-segment SoA, single-segment ToB, and a new, faster, segmented SoA.
