BESTIARY OF CLASS
The most fearsome monsters in the Baldur’s Gate series
A legendary monster, and arguably the most challenging boss in the Baldur’sGate series. You’ll find this beast in the Throne ofBhaal expansion, and to slay it you’ll need to make use of your party’s entire range of abilities. Before the battle you can have a thief lay traps, while mages can cast spells to weaken it. Even then, you are in for a grueling, almost impossible, battle.
A powerful dragon. If you rolled a paladin, one of your final duties is slaying him to retrieve the Holy Avenger, a legendary sword. Firkraag will cast Remove Magic on the party, removing everyone’s buffs. To make your life a little easier make sure you have a cleric who can cast Protection From Fire on the group, and cast Stoneskin and Mirror Image on your best tank.
Encountering one of these undead magic users is enough to make even a hardened adventurer defile their pantaloons. They’re immune to non-magic weapons and have a range of nasty spells at their disposal. They’ll cast Stoneskin and Spell Trap on themselves, making them almost invincible, but a few well-placed Arrows of Dispelling can weaken their defenses a little.
One of the most feared monsters in D&D. It can cast devastating spells, including turning you to stone, slowing you, and dominating your mind. To take one down you need to make ample use of buffs such as Spell Shield and Haste. You can also temporarily prevent it from casting spells, or use the Shield of Balduran to block its magic. Beholders are always a challenge, and a total nightmare, to fight.
