Hello and welcome to Lord Fenton Gaming plays Baldur’s Gate 2 Enhanced Edition. I am your host Lord Fenton. In this Don’t Panic series, the game I am going to touch up is Baldur’s Gate 2 Enhanced Edition. The Baldur’s Gate 2 is my all time favorite and I am proud to give everyone a new player guide on this wonderful game. In Baldur’s Gate 2 you start off being kidnapped in a prison. Your wondering I am in a prison and the dude who sounds like Evil from Time Bandit torturing me what do I do? Do not panic, my Baldur’s Gate 2 New Player Guide will help. I will go over somewhat briefly the class system, touch up on THAC0 and what it is, look for out romances, Strongholds for classes and why the Shaman Class cannot get one and more. Watch my Don’t Panic Baldur’s Gate 2 Enhanced Edition New Player Guide and get beyond the new player stage. As always like, comment and subscribe to my channel for more DnD Content like this.

  1. Not to be mean, but you don't actually explain anything. You're going through the races and classes, and reading out load the text that's already on the screen. I can read that too, but was looking for someone to give context to what it means. Writing this comment cause you seem to spend a lot of time on this video, so wanted to give this feedback. Thanks for the effort though!

  2. I'm going to try and beat this game before BG3 comes out. Really happy with the Divinity team and I'm hoping I can get into this.

  3. You forgot to mention that Strength determines To-Hit chance with melee weapons and Dex gives bonus to hitting with ranged weapons. This is the most basic of basic stuff that everyone needs to know. You should prioritize this kind of important info and skip telling about Alignment or Speciality Mage Classes.

  4. Trying this game again for the third time haha. There's spells in this game that I didn't know how to counter. There were some that caused my own party members to get confused and/or attack my own party. What would I need to get rid of that status effect?

  5. Im new to this game, should have bought the first one since its the continuous of the story unlike any games that had seperate protagonist in their sequels. But anyway, would you mind to recommend me a character race,ability and classes. Im really struggel to choose one since theres just too many of them.

  6. Hello I Downloaded the gog version and my AI looks totally different. Also it wouldn't let me pick difficulty and I don't have those health bars over the characters heads. What's wrong w my game?

  7. How the fuck do actually do the combat stuff?!?! Fuck! I can’t cast a spell! It’s in my spell book but I don’t know how to cast it from there. The fuck kind of tutorial is this.
