It has been a long journey. From the humble beginnings as a youth in the security of Candlekeep, traveling to the depths of slaved-worked mines, to the cloak-and-dagger politics of Baldur's Gate; as far down as the capital city of Amn, having to deal with the depraved obsessions of the madman Jon Irenicus and an army of undead. The protagonist has seen the death of friends, gained new companions, and met lovers. After much hardship and toil it has come down to this. It all ends here in Tethyr. A great war for dominance is waging between the children of the god Bhaal. The protagonist stands in the center of the struggle. It is time to end the questing and get the answers sought for so very long.

Baldur's Gate II: Throne of Bhaal is an add-on to Shadows of Amn and requires it for playing. Despite being an expansion pack, the game directly continues the story from Shadows of Amn, and is the final chapter of the Baldur's Gate saga, following the adventures of the main character through the Forgotten Realms universe. The hero(ine) encounters new characters, new lands, new items, equipment, quests, and monsters, up to the ultimate battle that concludes the overarching story.

The add-on raises the level cap to 40, and allows the characters to access the most powerful attacks and spells. All the party members from the previous game are playable and selectable from the onset, with the addition of a new surprising companion, Sarevok, whom the player has met in the first game. The game also adds a large dungeon called Watcher's Keep, which contains the game's most powerful enemies and can be accessed from Shadows of Amn, provided Throne of Bhaal is installed.


Baldur's Gate II: Throne of Bhaal Windows The final chapter is very combat heavy. You still have classic BG moments, though - relaxing in a tavern, chatting with NPCs...
Baldur's Gate II: Throne of Bhaal Windows Cozy Smugglers' Cave. You open a chest and get hit by a trap
Baldur's Gate II: Throne of Bhaal Windows Even in the oasis, some pesky archers attack me!..
Baldur's Gate II: Throne of Bhaal Windows Uh-oh. Draconis, one of the game's boss enemies, hasn't decorated his palace this nicely just to have a cup of tea with me and my friends

Wizards of the Coast published a novelization of this game in 2001, written by Drew Karpyshyn.


Ever wonder what the Gold Pantaloons in Baldur's Gate were for? What about the Silver ones in Baldur's Gate II: Shadows of Amn? If you import your character from BG1 (who has the Gold Pantaloons) into BG2, find the Silver ones there, and then import this character into Throne of Bhaal, you will need to find the Bronze Pantalettes. After that, Kerrick the Smith can combine them to create the Big Metal Unit, giving your character an AC of -10, as well as the Big Metal Rod weapon which shoots frag grenades, pulse ammo, and scorcher ammo. Wearing the armor makes your character literally look like a Juggernaut Golem.
