Icewind Dale II - ?

Planescape: Torment - No (no Dimension Door available)

Method And Explanation Edit

Baldur's Gate 1 and Icewind Dale I

Variant 1

Cast the Dimension Door spell and leave the area before the spell is finished. In the new area you'll be placed at the coordinates at which you would have been placed in the old area (check by pressing l or x). Addionally, maps sometimes have different coordinate systems, which can make this trick highly effective.

Variant 2

Cast the Dimension Door spell and leave the area before the spell is finished. The area you're leaving to must create an autosave. Then reload the autosave. The character will be misplaced at position (0,0) (or the nearest possible if blocked).
