The Black Pits II, officially called the Black Pits II: Gladiators of Thay, is a follow-up to Baeloth's Black Pits I. The Black Pits II shows up in Baldur's Gate II: Enhanced Edition. It is run by a powerful mage named Dennaton, enforced by a planetar called The Winged, and staffed by many volunteers and servants of Dennaton.

There are several differences between the two installments. The area in Black Pits II is much larger than in Black Pits I, the arena entrance is a non-weave zone which prevents magic energy from channeling so you can't pre-buff your party like in BP1 but there's a place for you to prepare sequence spells and you may ask others to help you in battles. Much more powerful monsters are in fight and you start at levels 9-11, depending on your class. New Reward system is introduced.

Reward system Edit

In addition to exp and gold gain, Dennaton will give you an option to address the crowd and request an item before you enter the arena, there're two ways to address, hero or villain, you should stick to one path as they are counterproductive, increasing one will decrease another. Each time you become more heroic or villain, the chance you receive a reward after fights increases. You can only address 3 times in the same battle, any further attempts will not increase the total reward chance. There're also 2 types of rewards in each battle, good and great, but you may only get one type per fight so you have to fight the same battle more to get another. The chance of getting a good item starts at 45%, the chance of getting a great item starts at 20%, only one copy of each kind of reward can be gained.

Walkthrough Edit

Dennaton considers you his guests, though you were taken by force. When you start out, you are in a tavern and a bard is telling the story of your escape from the Black Pits I. She will engage in dialogue, and, no matter what you say to her line, she and the other patrons in the tavern will turn into hostile people, complete with The Winged, an Iron or Adamantite Golem, and an Efreeti. Before this happens, Najim will arrive and warn you that you are in danger. He will be trapped by a magical sphere. Once your whole party is defeated, you will be transported to the Pits. In the unlikely and nearly impossible event (Unless you play with an already trained and well-equipped party) that you win this fight, a dialogue will initiate with Najim, and several options are possible. He will speak about a divination spell to give you a preview of what would have happened had you lost the fight. Agreeing to this will allow you to play the Black Pits II just as if you lost or let them take you by force, while refusing will simply get you back to title screen.

There're containers in the game, some are locked or need a key, some require you be at a certain story point.
