The mage Valerie Valeria from Gavin's quest drops a +3 staff - which is a bit powerful for the early game. What do you think, nerf it to +2, or maybe even +1? "Oh, please no, that's the staff I always go for as soon as I come to Beregost"? What's your opinion?

What's Valeria's strength as an opponent ? Perhaps it's because his staff does the most in the partnership ? V-himself could be a bumbling idiot like the host is most of the time.
A +1 ... + a bonus that makes V-also good - could be more suited perhaps.

Welcome to the sanity, you are free to search for the limit, it's out there, we drew it in the sand.
Here's how to install all the ... mods you ever really could want to Infinity Engine games. I removed the stable word from there as Roxanne began to add BS mods that are likely to break compatibility from the BWS.

PS - this is Valeria, not to be confused with the mage Valerie, the joinable NPC from her own mod.

Roxanne: Making the staff undroppable is a good idea, too.


And sorry about the names. I always twist names (I tend to misspell the names of my own quest characters in my mods if I don't look them up regularly.)

I went with both: made the +3 staff undroppable and let her drop a +1 staff.
