    In order to make the guide more accessible I have implemented Damir Kolar's 
    Search feature into my guide. To use it, press CTRL + F to bring up the Find
    dialogue box. Copy  the code in there and press enter. You will go to the area
    of the FAQ that you put in. I took care to only put the code in twice so you 
    should never have to press Enter more than once.
    
    However, I'm certain there's still some kinks to work out with the new 
    formatting, and thus I haven't implemented the actual search feature as of 
    4.00; soon, though.

    - There are Minor Spoilers in this Guide.
    
    Hi, this is an item guide for the excellent game, Baldur's Gate: Dark Alliance.
    Everything should work for all three systems that the game is designed for - 
    Playstation 2, X-BOX, and GameCube, except for the Cheats section. For an 
    excellent Cheats guide, go to GameFAQs and look at the Cheats FAQ there by 
    Fragnarok.

     Just like in any document that has information gained from empirical tests, 
    not actual values, there may be some values or information in this FAQ that
    could be wrong, or things that I have overlooked. This bodes the same for any
    FAQ written that uses empirical evidence. If I didn't use empirical evidence, I 
    would have to get my values from the DVD. Though I don't have anything  
    against hex editing and the like, I simply don't have the knowledge, skills, 
    or tools to do so. As such, I am limited to knowledge found by my own means.
    However, if you would like to teach me some things about this, I would be 
    _more_ than happy to accept.

    [03-01-01] Armor Notes
    ----------------------
    
    - Firstly, although armors that are a lower level then their counterparts have 
      a lower base defense, if a modified (see 3.A.vii) armor of a lower level has
      a net AC of higher then the counterpart of the higher level, it should be 
      preferred for the benefit of weight reduction.
    
    -  The levels of armor are just in the order of how they increase in AC and 
       weight. AC stands for armor class, or the "strength" of the armor.  The 
       levels are, in increasing base AC:
    
     Table 3.1 - Armor Levels
     +------+------------------------+
     | Set# |  Name                  |
     +------+------------------------+
     |  0   |  Basic Clothing        |
     |  1   |  Padded Armor          |
     |  2   |  Leather Armor         |

     |  7   |  Full Plate Mail       |
     +------+------------------------+ 
    
       Notes on the Following Chart:
       -----------------------------
    
      - The locations given are very general, because all locations in a certain 
        areas have been found to drop the same armor sets throughout. (For example,
        the Sewers Level 1 and Level 2 have the same sets of armor throughout).
         
      - This table was designed to show the potential of all items that could be 
        dropped. The educated assumption was made that all possible pieces of a 
        set could be dropped in any given area.
         
      - It must be noted that earlier on, the weaker sets are dropped most often,
        while in later locations, stronger sets are usually dropped. However, the 
        other (lower) sets still have the potential to drop.
         
      - Higher Set Numbers sets will always be quite rare to find in any given 
        area (that has the potential to drop them), but the potential to find them 
        is still there.
         
      - Modifiers (discussed in 3.A.vii) are not considered to affect the item's 
        find rate.
         
      - Armor can be dropped by enemies and found in treasure chests. This table
        encapsulates both possibilities.

    - All the sets of armor can eventually be bought in the game. The shopkeepers 
      sell them to you at one base price, however, some sets that the shopkeepers 
      sell have modifiers on them (see 3.A.vii) and therefore, their cost differs.
      These are applicable to the Easy, Normal and Hard difficulty levels, and the 
      following table shows you what is available.
    
    
     Table 3.3 - Set Buying Areas
     +--------------------------------+
     | Act #      Set Sold            |
     +--------------------------------+
     |           1  2  3  4  5  6  7  |
     | Act I     *  *  *  *           |
     | Act II    o  o  o  *  *        |
     | Act III            o  x  *  *  |
     +--------------------------------+-----+
     | Legend:                              |
     | * Sold Normally                      |
     | o Sold With (a) Modifier(s)          |
     | x Sold Normally And With Modifiers   |
     +--------------------------------------+
    
    
    - The selling and buying prices give were used given a 0% charisma bonus. To 
      find the cost your character will get, multiply it by the charisma percentage
      modifier in game.
    
    
     - Some notes about Extreme Difficulty and it's relation to armor
    
      - In Extreme Difficulty, the shops carry seemingly randomly generated armors.
        This is proven by observing the amount of similar armors in any given shop 
        keeper's selection (for example, Bartley sometimes has two sets of Half 
        Plate Boots +5). Therefore, a table cannot distinctly organize this.
        
      - Almost all armors in Extreme have a modifier (see 3.A.vii) on them.
    
      - All types of armor have the potential to drop at any point in the game, and
        generally, they have a modifier. Later on in the game, the lower sets (1-3)
        hardly ever drop, but as usual, the potential is still there.
     
    
    
    
    Finally, the general (my) consensus on the armor sets:
    ------------------------------------------------------
    
    
      0. Basic Clothing
      -----------------
      
      Useless. Pointless. Only used to cover up otherwise indecent parts of the 
      polygon's body. I recommend that these are ditched as soon as possible, 
      i.e. the start of the game, mostly because they take up valuable weight 
      space and add absolutely no defense to the overall rating.  The one bonus 
      is that they cover up the dwarf.
    
      1. Padded Armor
      ---------------
      
      Also fairly useless. Use only if you don't have leather. They are used 
      pretty much to take up space and offer minimal defense. However, since they 
      are light compared to other armor of their relative AC, if you do come 
      across one that is modified enough (see 3.A.vii) that makes it have a higher
      AC then something of the leather variety, use this over the other kinds. 
      Other then that, it really has no perks.
    
      2. Leather Armor
      ----------------
      
      Once again, this is pretty much transition. Upgrade to and from this in as 
      small of a time span as possible.
    
      3. Studded Leather
      ------------------
      
      The last non-metal set of armor. This is definitely a decent set of armor, 
      usually the armor of choice for most of the game for many sorceresses because
      of its lightness. The defense is good enough for the purposes of a sorceress.
      Modified Studded Leather is a very good alternative to Scale or Chain mail 
      because Studded Leather with a high modifier will allow for a competitive AC
      and a very low weight, which is essential to the success of a sorceress.
    
      4. Scale Mail
      -------------
      
      Not good. Low AC with a high weight. Basically transition, only use if there
      is nothing else or once again if there is a high modifier on it.
    
      5. Chain Mail
      -------------
      
      Decent armor, albeit heavy. Not much else to say, usually is the armor of 
      choice before heading into the third act. Look for the Elven modifier to 
      use to equip on sorceresses.
    
      6. Half Plate Armor
      -------------------
      
      This is an interesting set. Although the main body protection still has a 
      buying price lower then that of Set 7, the other pieces of the set have a 
      higher buying price. This is because of the weight to AC ratio of this armor:
      since the AC is relatively high and the weight is lower then that of Set 7 
      armor. Still, the weight is quite high and is recommended for dwarves and 
      humans that have invested in strength and endurance over dexterity. Some 
      brave sorceresses have been known to equip high-number modified strength 
      rings and in turn equip set 6 & 7 armors. Elven modifiers on this and set
      7 are rare, but if you can find them, consider yourself lucky.
    
      7. Full Plate Armor
      -------------------
      
      The grand daddy of all armors. This has the highest AC and weight and costs 
      less then the Half Plate armor (some pieces). Dwarves should always use
      pieces of this when its possible and has net AC higher then that of the 
      Half Plate Armor. Humans can use this also, and later on in the game, when 
      +15 Strength rings flow like wine, these armors are definitely the best 
      choice.
    
    
    [03-01-02] Is Armor Useful?
    ---------------------------
    
    The quick answer to this question is that, no, it isn't.
    
    From Interplay.com, one of the developers named Dave Malando made this post:
    
    "Unfortunately, the way BGDA handles armor, to-hit rolls, and monster 
    statistics makes armor relatively ineffective later in the game. Basically, any
    attacker's chance to hit a target is its base attack divided by the target's 
    armor bonus; the problem was that later monsters often had so high a base 
    attack that the resulting number was always one or greater--in other words, a 
    100% or better chance to hit. In addition, armor has no damage resistance (a la
    the D&D rules), meaning that if it's not stopping monsters from hitting the 
    character completely, it does no good at all."

     +----------------------+
    
    [04-01-00] Weapon Information
    -----------------------------
    
    - You can wield one ranged weapon and one melee weapon at a time. Press left
      or right to change between the two different weapons. Note that this allows
      you carry a shortbow with arrows and a single handed weapon with a shield
      or a two handed weapon.
      
    - Much unlike armors, weapons are far less organized. They appear all 
      throughout the game, albeit with modifiers, and have the potential to drop 
      at any given time after the Crypts in Act I. It is rare later on in the game
      that a weapon listed will not come with a modifier.
    
    - **Weapons** in the shops are set. This means that every time you play the 
      game through on [Easy, Normal and Hard] OR [Extreme] Difficulty the items in 
      the shops will be exactly the same.
    
    - As one would expect, weapons usually get better as one progresses through the
      game. However, as usual, the *potential* for a poor item drop is always 
      there. Weapons with higher damage usually drop later on in the game, however,
      it is not greatly uncommon if something drops that would seem to be over 
      powered in reference to other things that have dropped.
    
    - Prices given were with a base charisma modifier of 0%. To find the price your
      character will have to pay / sell, multiply the price by their percentage 
      modifier (it is found in the Status tab of the game menu)
    
    - Item appearances may change if they are not just normal or worn / rusty. 
      They are noted by the numbers in front of the description. The items 
      appearances don't have to be different if they are on a s
    
    - If you have no weapons at all, you can attack with your martial arts skills.
      The sorceress kicks, and the dwarf and the human punch. The base damage for
      unarmed combat is 1-2. The Strength Modifier is added onto this directly. You
      can see the damage that you do if you unequip your weapon and go to the 
      status screen.
    
    [04-01-01] Damage Calculations vs Inventory Damage
    --------------------------------------------------
    
    Note that the following weapon values are for the inventory.  The info
    in the inventory is a good gauge, but not completely accurate. Believe it or
    not, the information in the inventory is falsified to a degree, by this I mean
    that they don't show the right damage. Forum member Vendetta and myself (mostly
    Vendetta) have discovered this. 
    
    So how do you know if your weapon damage is falsified? Well,
    
    - your weapon must have an elemental modifier
    - your weapon must have a quality modifier (such as fine, masterwork)
    
    As I have explained previously, the way that the damage is calculated in this
    game's inventory (the numbers that you can actually view) is in the following
    method:
    
    1. Base Damage 
    2. + Elemental Damage
    2. + the number on the end of the weapon
    3. Multiply final damage by the quality mod
    
    HOWEVER. This is not how the REAL damage is calculated. The game does this 
    instead:
    
    1. Base Damage
    2. + the number on the end of the weapon
    3. Multiply this damage by the quality mod
    4. + elemental damage
    
    So here is an example of this:
    
    Say you have a Frost Masterwork Longsword +5.
    
    In the inventory the damage would be calculated like this.
    
    1. Base Damage: For a long sword, this is base damage is 2-8. 
    2. + Elemental Damage: The elemental damage from the frost is given in the guide
       as +1 min, +12 max. So now the damage is 3-20.
    3. + Number on the End of the Weapon: The number at the end of the weapon is 
      + 5, so the damage is 8-25 (note steps 2 and 3 can be interchanged)
    4. Quality Mod: Multiply the final damage by the quality mod. For masterwork,
       this is x2; so the final damage that is listed in the inventory is 16-50.
    
    
    So this is what the damage should be, right? Wrong. The real damage is this:
    
    1. Base damage for the Longsword stays the same, 2-8.
    2. Then the number on the end of the weapon is added. This shows the damage to
       be 7-13.
    3. Now the damage is multiplied for the modifier. The damage is doubled which
       results in 14-26.
    4. Finally, the elemental damage is added on. In this case, the frost modifier
       is +1, +12, which gives the weapon a final damage of 15-38.
    
    This is a pretty huge difference. In any case, values for the modifiers stay
    the same, just the order that they are calculated in change. The weapons that 
    suffer the most are the ones with Shock / Shocking Burst modifiers, because 
    they have the highest modification numbers. So if you think that shocking burst
    weapons are really friggin' strong, they still are, but not to the degree that 
    the inventory will mislead you to. 
    
    To put this in perspective, the use of the most powerful item in the game, 
    damage wise, the Shocking Burst Adamantine Great Sword + 5, deals a theoretical 
    64 - 224 damage. However, it actually deals 61 - 140 with the actual damage; so 
    there is a very large percent error here. This makes the values of Onyx Sword, 
    which indeed do deal accurate damage, far better. Plus, the Onyx Sword is 
    statistically a million times easier to acquire and you can use your Iron
    Shield +5 (though useless, it can block nicely) and you get your damage against
    the last boss too.

    | FINE            = Increases max\min damage by 150 %.
    | 
    | MASTERWORK      = Increases max\min damage by 200 %.
    |
    | SHOCK           = Adds +1 min, +24 max lightning damage, added after every
    |                   blow.
    | 
    | FROST           = Adds +1 min, +12 max ice damage, added after every blow.
    |                   Has a chance of freezing the enemy.
    | 
    | FLAMING         = Adds +1 min, +6 max fire damage, added after every blow.
    |                   Has a chance of setting the enemy on fire.
    | 
    | SHOCKING BURST  = Adds +1 min, +24 max lightning damage, added after every 
    |                   bow. On a critical hit, adds +1 min, +40 max lightning 
    |                   damage.
    |
    | ICY BURST       = Adds +1 min, +12 max ice damage, added after every blow. 
    |                   Adds +1 min, +20 ice damage on a critical hit, and has a 
    |                   high chance of freezing the enemy.  
    |
    | FLAMING BURST   = Adds +1 min, +6 max fire damage, added after every blow. 
    |                   Adds +1 min, +10 max fire damage on a critical hit. Has a 
    |                   high chance of setting the enemy on fire on a critical hit,
    |                   for two seconds (much like WOUNDING).
    | 
    | KEEN            = Increases the chance of a critical hit. Seems fairly cons-
    |                   tant, about a 1/6 of a chance of critical damage per hit.
    |                   Other sources say it as a 5% chance, but I think that it
    |                   occurs more frequently than that.
    | 
    | WOUNDING        = Inflicts the enemy with constant damage for four "hits".
    |                   There is a random chance of the damage inflicted per "hit"
    |                   being from 1-5, and the damage stays as that for the dur-
    |                   ation of the wound. Two seconds long.
    | 
    | JEWELED         = Doubles the price of the item. The price is doubled after 
    |                   all other price modifiers are added.
    | 
    | OF DEFENSE +(x) = Adds (x) to min\max damage. (x) never increases above 5.
    |                   Adds an AC bonus, based on the size of (x). If (x) is
    |                   1 or 2, AC increases by one, if it is 3 or 4, AC increases
    |                   by 2, if (x) is 5, AC increases by 3.
    | 
    | OF SPEED +(x)   = Adds (x) to min\max damage. (x) never increases above 5.
    |                   Adds an attack speed bonus, based on the size of (x).
    |                   The attack is faster if (x) is larger.
    | 
    | +(x)            = Adds (x) to min\max damage. (x) never increases above 5.
    | 
    +-----------------------------------------------------------------------------+
    
    All of the above increase prices to some degree. However, there is no constant
    price increase to report*, for example, a +1 weapon will sell for a little
    more than its selling value, but a +4 weapon will sell for a great deal more
    then it's original selling value with no constant increase. 
    
    * The exception is the Jeweled modifier, which doubles the price of the weapon
      after all the other modifiers have been added. For further information, see
      the Frequently Asked Questions section of this guide.
    
    Note on the Elemental Modifiers: These cause your weapons to flare up with 
    their element in the presence of an enemy. Magic resistant enemies, and 
    enemies that are resistant to that particular element (such as Will-o-Wisp 
    being resistant to electric attacks) take only 50% of the damage. 
    
    You can identify a magical item by the blue aura that they have around them.

    All other damage modifiers are added onto the weapon before the percentage
    modifiers are added.
    
    - Note on Blunt and Bladed Weapons:
    -----------------------------------
    
    Bladed weapons inflict half damage upon the undead (including the Shortbow). 
    Blunt weapons cause full damage upon the undead, and seem to decrease the 
    chance of Zombies coming back to life . Also, if you dismember both of the arms
    or the head of the Zombie, they will not come back to life. The best way to
    check if they are dead is if they make a pool of blood or they land on their
    back.
    
     +----------------+
    =| [04-06] Arrows |============================================================
     +----------------+
     
    Used with the shortbow. Arrows are considered an equippable weapon in this
    game (to a degree - it counts as a slot). They can't be affected by normal 
    weapon modifiers.
    
    -------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    Arrows
    -------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    Light weight sticks of wood attached to a pointed end. Designed for speed and
    accuracy.
    
    Weight:          = 3.8 per 20
    Selling Price:   = 11
    Buying Price:    = 20
    Notes:           = Weight decreases with the amount of arrows gained.
                       Arrows lose .1 pounds per 20 arrows gained until
                       the weight reaches a multiple of 15.
    
    The skill "Arcane Arrows" reduces the weight of weapons to 1.9 per 20.

    -------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    Twinkle
    -------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    
    Type:            = Steel, Bladed
    Damage:          = 17-33
    Weight:          = 4.0
    Selling Price:   = 6641
    Buying Price:    = (14610)
    Notes:           = "Defending Scimitar +5". Can only be used by Drizzt. Cannot
                       be sold. Wielded only with Icingdeath.
    
    Note On Drizzt's Swords:
    ------------------------
    
    - There is something strange about these swords. Twinkle, technically, should 
    be a Scimitar of Defense +5, but that doesn't make sense with the developers 
    change in the damage. It would make sense that Defending Scimitar is a 
    completely different class of weapon, but then why doesn't appear anywhere else
    in the game? This is confusing me terribly. Same with Icingdeath, but to a 
    lesser degree... the added modifiers should only add up to be +4/+15 but they 
    added +2. So technically, it should be a Frost Scimitar +5. Unless Frost 
    Scimitar is a totally different class. That is why these weapons go in this 
    unique weapons section. 
    
    - Vendetta confirms that the damage in the inventory screen is totally wrong:
    
    "The actual damage range for both of his weapons seems to be 29-60 or 
    thereabouts. This makes them roughly equivalent to +2 Adamantine Scimitars."
    
    - "TheWookieeMan" adds this:
     I just wanted to clear up that in all games starring Drizzt Do'Urden(two 
     or so that I know of, BG and IWD), his two weapons are *always* a Frost 
     Scimitar +3 and a Defending Scimitar +5. So, really, that's why the modifiers
     and whatnot are a bit off; they just made up the damage and applied it to the
     constant, which is the sword's named abilities. Though, I don't know what that
     they pulled the damage from...the damage may stay constant throughout the 
     games too. I'd have to check on that.

    Note that, though the Onyx Sword is a quest weapon, it more accurately reffered
    to as a Unique Weapon (found in its respective section).

    ===============================================================================
    
    
    01. Do the gems (rubies, diamonds, sapphires, emeralds) have any point? FAQ001
    -----------------------------------------------------------------------
    A. The ONLY purpose is to sell them for the small amounts of gold they are 
       offered for in the game. They cannot be "socketed" into any items (A la
       Diablo II) or anything else. They can be used as memoirs of your journey,
       but that's about it. And the silly thing is, they can sometimes be 
       purchased.
    
    02. Do Amulets or Rings that don't modify your stats have any point? FAQ002
    -------------------------------------------------------------------
    A. See the above question. They have no point but selling, and for some reason
       you can buy them from (usually) Bartley the Shopkeeper in Act I, and 
       sometimes in Act II.
    
    03. What is the strongest weapon in the game? FAQ003
    --------------------------------------------
    A. The Onyx Sword is the most powerful in my opinion: 90 - 120 damage AND a 
       shield can be wielded with it. 
    
       The inventory screen will lie to you about the weapon damage; the items with 
    the Shocking modifier are actually far weaker than they seem. For example, the 
    Shock Adamantine Great Sword of Speed + 5 seems very strong (64 - 212) but in 
    reality, the 10-24 base damage turns out to be 61 - 140, significantly weaker, 
    and this makes the Onyx Sword look about 72 damage points and a shield better.
    04. What is the weakest weapon in the game?  FAQ004
    ------------------------------------------
    A. Besides the fists, the weakest weapon in the game is the Rusty Dagger,
       doing 1-2 damage. (The fists can actually become quite strong, I believe, 
       as their damage increases with strength)
    
    05. What is the best armor set in the game? FAQ005
    ------------------------------------------
    A. In terms of pure AC, Full Plate Armor. In terms of weight-to-AC ratio, Half
       Plate Armor. This is good because you can carry more things, with a very
       respectable armor class.
    
    06. How high can +(x) modifiers go? FAQ006
    ----------------------------------
    A. For armors and weapons, they can go up to +5. For jewelry, they can go as 
       high as +15 (although good luck finding those until the Onyx Tower or 
       Extreme difficulty). These jewelry are commonplace later in the game 
       however.
    
    07. What is the deal with the clothes at the beginning of the game? FAQ007
    ------------------------------------------------------------------
    A. The clothes honestly have no point other then, uh, clothing your character. 
       The AC is pitiful and whenever I start a game I always drop the clothes 
       right when I start the game to lose the weight of the clothes. Looks kind of
       funny running around half-naked, though :)
    
    08. Can you take ALL the clothes off the Sorceress? FAQ008
    ---------------------------------------------------
    A. Nay.   
    
    09. Where can the Recall Potion be used? FAQ009
    ---------------------------------------
    A. No recall potions work in the Onyx Tower, during a boss battle, where a
       safe area has not been found (i.e. the beginning of an Act, or in safe areas
       (such as towns). Anywhere else is fine.
    
    10. Are there any other bows in the game? FAQ010
    ----------------------------------------
    A. No, the only bow is the ShortBow. The most powerful bow, the Shock(ing 
       Burst) Oak Short Bow of Speed + 5, doing 40 - 148 damage per hit.
    
    11. Are there Class specific weapons? FAQ011
    -------------------------------------
    A. So, the class specific weapons are the two handed weapons, with the 
       exception of the bow. The two handed weapons can only be used by the 
       Archer and the Dwarf. Other then that, all weapons are free game for any of
       the classes.
    
    12. Are there constant weapon drops anywhere? FAQ012
    --------------------------------------------
    A. In most of the First Act of the game, and the Onyx Golem always drops the 
       Onyx Sword (in the Gauntlet and the Onyx Tower). There may be some other
       exceptions that I am not aware of, but I am sure that in the first act of
       the game there are constant weapon drops from treasure chests only. 
    
       Additionally, there are always lots of potions that drop in places where
       there is (at a certain point in the game) no where to recall to. For 
       example, the Windwalk and the Onyx Tower (this is true for arrows as well).
       In the Onyx Tower, no recall potions drop (to my knowledge). 
    
    13. What is the Buying to Selling Ratio? FAQ013
    ---------------------------------------
    A. That is a very good question because it seemingly changes with each item 
       bought. The ratio is always 2.2 plus 0.0x, and the x may change with every 
       item. This is how I calculated some of the prices in brackets.
    
    14. How the heck are Item Gold values calculated? FAQ014
    ------------------------------------------------
    A. That I do not know. There is no set value that I can immediately find that 
       changes the gold value, if a modifier is added on. For example, a +1 
       increases a weapons worth by a different value per item, as well as any 
       other modifier used on a different item. No percentage increase, I'm afraid.
    
    15. Who is Drizzt? FAQ015
    -----------------
    A. Drizzt is the main character from some of the Forgotten Realms series of 
       fantasy novels. If you enjoyed the story in this game and haven't read any
       of that series, I recommend you pick up some.
    
    16. What items and equipment does Drizzt start off with? FAQ016
    -------------------------------------------------------
    A. When you first control Drizzt, he has his two swords, Twinkle and 
       Icingdeath, as well as a Mithril Chainmail + 4, and 3 healing potions. You
       can keep the items that you get in the Gauntlet as you proceed in the game
       after unlocking him.
    17. Can other characters wield two weapons like Drizzt? FAQ017
    ------------------------------------------------------
    A. No. Drizzt is the only character that can do this. The tradeoff for being
       able to wield two weapons seems to be not being able to change weapons.
    
    18. Can you take off Drizzt's swords? FAQ018
    ------------------------------------
    A. No, it is not possible for Drizzt to use other weapons in this game 
       (although if you have read books about Drizzt he has used a bow on occasion)
    
    19. Who is Lotor? Can I play with him? FAQ019
    -------------------------------------
    A. Lotor is just another name for Drizzt. And therefore, because he is a 
       hidden character, you can play with him.
    
    20. What is the difference between the Elemental Burst and Non-Burst Modifiers?
    -------------------------------------------------------------------------FAQ020
    A. A forum member named Vendetta was kind to point out that Non-Burst elemental
       modifiers, such as "Shock" instead of "Shocking Burst", cause their damage 
       after every hit. Burst weapons, however, cause the same damage as Shock
       weapons on normal hits, but on critical hits, they cause extra damage.

    I have included a cheat section (yes, this is an items guide) because, well, 
    you can use cheats in conjunction with items, I suppose. They are also asked 
    about frequently on message boards. These are for the Playstation 2 ONLY (you
    can find the codes for other systems on the Cheats FAQ on the Dark Alliance 
    page at GameFAQs.com).

     +-----------------+
    
    
      [08-01-01] EXTREME DIFFICULTY:
      ----------------------
      Beat the game on Easy, Normal, or Hard difficulty and then the new challenge,
      The Gauntlet will appear. Beat this (you get to control Drizzt Do'Urden) and 
      then Extreme Difficulty will be unlocked.
    
      [08-01-02] PLAY AS DRIZZT DO'URDEN (LEGIT):
      -----------------------------------
      Beat the game on Extreme Difficulty. Sounds easy, right? After you do this, 
      Drizzt will become a playable character. Now you must import Drizzt(from your
      Gauntlet save file) into the main game.
    
      [08-01-03] "LOADS" OF FUN:
      ------------------
      During the loading screen, rotate the right analog stick. The flames on the 
      loading words will correspond to the movements.

      [08-02-01] CHEAT MENU:  
      --------------
    
      Hold R2, L1, Triangle and left on D-Pad, then press start.
    
      Inputting this code during game play will open a cheat menu, that allows for 
      level warps (including to parts of levels that were only used in cinematics, 
      And the Gauntlet with a regular character) and invincibility.
    
      A note when using the Level Select menu - don't worry if the text of the 
      level that you want to go to is in red: this simply means that it is not in
      the same act that you are in.
    
      [08-02-02] QUICK LEVEL UP AND OTHER GOODIES: 
      ------------------------------------
    
      While in game play, press and hold L1, R2, Triangle, Left on the D-Pad, R3, 
      then press Start.
    
      This will make your character 20th level, with 75000 gold, 1000 Health and 
      1000 Mana. Additionally, a minimum of 1 in every feat, including OTHER 
      character specific feats is given. There is a tradeoff however: you will not
      be able to gain any more experience, and your stats will not change. 
      There are some other things that I and other people have noticed, check out 
      the excellent Debug FAQ on Gamefaqs.com for more information on this cheat.
    
    
      [08-02-03] PLAY AS DRIZZT DO'URDEN (CHEATING):
      --------------------------------------
      Too hard to get Drizzt normally? Well, inputting this code will allow for 
      quick release.
    
      At the character select screen, L1, R1, Triangle, and press X. Choose a 
      character. That character will become Drizzt. Doing this, however, may not 
      allow for Drizzt to level up past 20th level.

     +-----------------------------+
      
     [08-03-01] Item Duplication
     ---------------------------
    
      You must have two players, and being in a safe place (town) is a must. Then, 
      have one character drop the requested item(s). Import the character that just 
      dropped their items and they will have all the things that they just dropped 
      but, its also on the ground. Doing this, you can give the item to another
      character, or sell it for money.
    
    
     [08-03-01] Experience and/or Gold
     ---------------------------------
    
      Quick Experience Method A
      --------------------------
    
      (Thanks to "Erewego" on the GameFAQs cheat page)
    
      "Get to a save point right before a boss that gives A LOT of experience. 
      'Example: Beholder, Drow Elf Sorceress, [Ice] Dragon, Onyx Golem. Save the 
      game. 
    
      Defeat the boss, then go back and save the game under a new file. Load the 
      original file (before you fought the boss). Import the character from the new 
      file (after you fought the boss). Go fight the boss again for more 
      experience. 
    
      Repeat till you reach whatever level you wish. The massive experience you get
      should make it easy."
    
    
      Quick Experience Method B (and Gold)
      -------------------------
      (Thanks to "TruthSeeker")
    
    
      " There's an even easier way to exploit the import function to gain exp. and 
      gold.  Once you've gone through Burning Eye and the Mines and recovered the 
      Horn, but BEFORE you talk to Torreigor, you save the game.  This save will be
      the game you continuously reload, walking right over to the Dwarf, getting 
      your reward, saving on a different file, and repeating the process.  You 
      don't fight anything, it takes two seconds to talk to the guy, and you get 
      2,000 exp and 3,000 gold for every reload. "
    
      This method is obviously preferred unless you like fighting endlessly.
    
        
     [08-03-01] Increase Carrying Capacity
     -------------------------------------
      (Thanks to "TruthSeeker")
    
      "
      This one's the best trick I found by myself that wasn't already listed on 
      FAQ's and stuff. I was in the Onyx tower, weighed down with arrows and heavy
      armor. (not to mention potions).  The desperate desire to pick up more loot 
      (aka greed!) overcame me, so I equipped my Amulet of Strength +5 and watched
       my weight capacity shoot up by 50 units.  And I thought... wait a minute... 
      if my base capacity is 200, and my amulet makes it 250 - and then I pick up 
      all this stuff until  I reach 250.... what's the game gonna do if I take the
      amulet off while Im carrying so much?? Curiosity got the best of me, and i 
      unequipped the amulet, knowing it would reduce my capacity beneath the weight
      I was carrying.  To my surprise (and delight) - the ratio on screen read: 
      249.5/200.  Eureka!! Long story short- always keep an amulet and a ring (or 
      two) of strength (+ x) with you at all times.  Anytime you're too weighed 
      down to pick stuff up, don't drop anything - just equip the strength jewelry,
      pick all that stuff up and do back to your original preferred jewelry.  
      You'll have taken advantage of the strength bonus long enough to load down 
      the loot, and still get to wear that Ring of Rejuvenation or Amulet of 
      Constitution you've become so attached to."
    
      "TheWookieMan" gives this addenum:
    
    "Oh, yeah. And what Truthseeker said about the 'weight cheating' is partially 
    incorrect. Instead of the weight going down to '.5' below the weight you can 
    handle when you unequip a ring/amulet of strength after becoming encumbered, 
    the weight *actually* stays the same when you unequip the ring/amulet of 
    strength. However, you can still walk around and you can equip something else

    Now, if you have a Gameshark Version 1 or 2, then you have access to some 
    more powerful codes (including item generation!!). However, there is far too
    much editing to do and it would take up a lot of space to include (obsolete)
    codes in this FAQ. Go to this web address to see the Version 1 and 2 codes:

      useless information.
    - Added the new Weapons Quick Reference Table. Won't do one for the other 
      items or armor, because that seems kinda pointless.

    =| [09-04] Item Generation Program |============================================
     +---------------------------------+
    
    I have programmed an Item Generator in Visual Basic 6.0. It can be found at
    this website:
    
    http://www.angelfire.com/scifi/keith999/bgda/
    
    The program is not a virus etc. It is not perfect either, and also I have lost
    my copy of VB and formatted my hard drive so I won't be able to update it for
    sometime. However, it is good for finding specific values for some items. I 
    have also given the source code (because the values that I found are probably
    copyright of the developers or something). If you can do something to make the
    program better, go ahead and email me the changes that you made :)
