The Rogue Rebalancing mod is a gameplay modification for Bioware's critically acclaimed role-playing game Baldur's Gate 2. It strives to bring the Rogue classes (Bards and Thieves) and their respective kits closer to their Pen and Paper AD&D counterparts.


In so far, Rogue Rebalancing can restore proper dual-wielding skills to Bards and Thieves, revise the Bard and Thief kits and their respective high-level abilities, restore the proper PnP spell progression table for Bards, add more items useful for Rogues to the game, slightly revise the thievery aspect of the game, enhance the Shadow Thief quests related to Bodhi's tasks in Chapter 2 and introduce a new challenging encounter with a group of Cyric's followers in Chapter 6. Some of the introduced changes will be applied immediately but, for best results, you should start a new game after installing this mod.

The mod is divided into multiple components all of which can be installed separately and are completely independent of each other. More detailed descriptions of all mod components can be found in their respective readme files.

It is compatible with BGEE as of v4.60, BG2EE as of v4.64, and IWDEE as of v4.80 (beta).

The mod has many adjustments, tweaks and revisions, and some compatibility and install order notes that should be reviewed by the player. It is highly recommended to have a close look at the mod's readme file for details.
