Baldur's Gate Wiki

Breathes Grit is an innate ability effect available to most Air Mephit creatures in the game saga.


The spell effect is uninterruptable and takes almost no time to deploy. A cone effect projectile is launched at a single target in range, but it has an area of effect that can also apply the detrimental grit to any in that cone. It is similar to the Cone of Cold in terms of its range and spreading arc.

The innate ability has no saving throw, ignores magic resistance and has power level 0, and thus cannot be blocked by spell protections like Spell Deflection or Minor Globe of Invulnerability. Any creatures in the AoE cone will suffer 1d6 (crushing) damage. The effect can be absorbed with a Stoneskin.
