So I'm finally replaying ToEE for the first time since shortly after it was released. I'm using the Co8 standard patch and Temple+. Because it's been so long since I've played it, my memory of certain things is slim to none. A few questions... 1. Are enemies easier to aggro than in the vanilla game? It seems like more offscreen enemies join in battle now. It's possible I'm just remembering that wrong though. Note: I do not have the 'Alert AI across rooms' option checked. 2. I took the Heighten Spell metamagic feat for my Wizard, and I kind of feel like it's a wasted feat. Doesn't scribing scrolls at a higher caster level have the same effect? 3. I saw that it was recommended to disable the 'End Turn after Default Action' option and set 'End Turn with Time Remaining' to never. Is that closer to actual rules? It seems like it would make the game easier. Also, was that option always there or was it added by CO8? 4. I just finished the battle with Lareth at the Moathouse, and... Spoiler I chose to kill him and then got ambushed by that large group while leaving. Did that always happen before? I don't remember. It seems like an unfair battle without metagaming. Also, is there any way to avoid it?
