I'd like to see a couple of things done in the baldurs gate 2 enhanced edition.
I know this first thought probably spits on the 2nd edition rules, but here are some thoughts.
Firstly, give a purpose to using some of the specialist mage types outside of diviner, conjurer, necromancer, and illusionist (outside of going for a purely rp experience). I was thinking maybe making it so higher level spells (especially the level 8 and 9 spells) are only available to specific magic specialists. I guess they would have to add higher level spells to give some variety for specialist mages, but I think it would be an interesting change to the game. Also, I guess general mages/ wild mages would have to be restricted in how many level 8 or 9 spells they are able to memorise. Given sorcerors limitations already I don't feel they'd need any changing. Overall mages are overpowered in the game, but some of the specialist types really should be made to be more playable.
I was also thinking getting rid of some items that you can get early in the game might be an idea (like the ring of charisma and the glasses of identification), or at least delaying until you'd normally be able to get them. As we all know the ring of charisma makes putting anything to charisma a pretty pointless for the characters who don't already have to. Also it diminishes the role that bards can play in a party (which I would argue is also hurt by the numerous glasses of identification you can get between both SOA and TOB - which I know is at least 2).
Also I know I can use shadowkeeper for this, but it would be nice if they fixed the classes that have weird restrictions on them. Like how an elf can be a cleric or a mage, but not a cleric/mage (similarly a halfling can be a fighter or a cleric, but not a fighter/cleric).
Of course no one from the company remaking this game will ever see this most likely, but it would be interesting to see your take on what they could do to make the game even more enjoyable. Also if you could be merciful I'd appreciate it.
