The Sword Coast Stratagems mod makes revisions to all Yuan-ti's in the game. The warrior types have new default SCS fighter scripts for improved tactical awareness and targeting behavior. The script also provides use of carried potions if they have them.

Additionally, the creature retains its Fighter Class and has new revised weapon proficiencies - 4 pips in Long Sword proficiency and 2 pips in single weapon fighting style. This improves weapon damage and armor class.

Afaaq the Djinni Companion mod quest will see the party having to teleport to the Jungles of Chult where extensive and tougher Yuan-ti adversaries are encountered. More Yuan-ti's are present in this scenario than any other unmodified area of the BG2 Saga.
