Baldur's Gate Wiki

Adsaan the Rakshasa can be encountered during Baldur's Gate II Chapter 7 in the city of Suldanessellar, and specifically within Demin's House.


The raksasha will deploy a couple of uninterruptible buffs, and then attempt to pollute the battlefield with a Chain Lightning, Cloudkill, and a Ice Storm.

If able, he'll fire off various offensive damage spells as shown in the InfoBox.

Remember, the raksasha are immune to spells with a Power level between 1 through 7, and thus he won't be touched by any of the AoE spells he will try.

In close quarters combat the creature will conduct melee attacks with his rapid APR longsword ability. His blows can pack a punch due the magical girdle he wears.

Sword Coast Stratagems mod revises this raksasha. A new "Smarter Mage" AI script is assigned. Adsaan's experience level is raised to 17.

A new battery of memorized arcane spells are scripted for use. The creature will be able to launch a chain of protective buffs at the outset of hostilities, to include: Mirror Image, Improved Haste, Spell Turning (or "Greater Spell Deflection" with SR), Shield (spell), Stoneskin, Non-Detection, and Protection From Magical Weapons.

A set of prepared Minor Sequencer, Spell Sequencer and Spell Trigger are scripted for instant deployment.

A scripted potion is assigned for healing purposes.

With the Spell Revisions mod the creature's spell versions will be the SR variety. Expect being unable to break the mage's invisibility and illusions due to SR's Non-Detection. Peel away the protective layers first.
