If in ToB I dual a kit with limitations in wearing something into a thief and learn the use anything ability later, will this ability override my previous kit's limitations?

I can't hit the magic golems in ToB!
You need non-magical weapons to hit them. Any normal weapon will do (i.e. no +1, +2, +3, etc.), or just use your fists to beat them to death.

Will the romance that I had in SOA continue in ToB?
Yes, the romance will carry on, provided you finished it in SOA of course. So if you want the romance to continue you'd better not go through SOA too fast.

How do i get the purifier?
On the third level of Watcher's Keep (the maze), there's a room with a big stone in the centre. Examine the stone with someone of lawful good alignment and only then you will get it. Other alignments are excluded.

How do i open the door in the cave with lich Vongoethe?
It's a secret passage to Balthazar's monastery. You'll get the opportunity to open it when you need to. However, there's also another way of entering the monastery, with the help of Saemon Haeverian.

What's my pocket plane and how do I access it?
Your pocket plane is your stronghold in ToB. It's a sort of micro-hell, where you can rest, store items, forge items, and where you must do challenges in order to fulfill your destiny. You get it right after your first fight in ToB (against Illisera) and it can be accessed afterwards through the "special ability" star button on the right of your toolbar.
