Baldur's Gate Wiki

The current match is just beginning. It will be an inspiring display of skill on the part of our most illustrious competitor.

— Chalinthra

Chalinthra is a drow fighter/cleric and a potential dueling opponent available in the Ust Natha Tavern. Speak with Sondal, the Duel Arena Manager in order to participate in the duels offered.


Once the party member faces off to duel Chalinthra - the battle will be enjoined and she shall release a series of uninterruptible self-buffs to include Physical Mirror, Shield of the Archons, Regeneration (spell), and Blade Barrier.

It is worth pointing out that the InfoBox's memorized spells listed are not a completely accurate reflection of what her script may do during a battle sequence.

She'll try a Silence, 15' Radius if her opponent has any mage or cleric class markers. She will attempt to cast a Heal on self when only 20% of her HP remains. There is another spell trigger available in the fight to apply Sanctuary and Heal, and Protection From Fire.

Offensively expect a Flame Strike, Bolt of Glory, Symbol, Stun, Charm Person or Mammal and a touch attack using Harm. If able, she'll summon help using the Animate Dead spell. Also, a True Seeing is available if certain conditions are met (such as the opponent being invisible).

In between spell casts, she'll wield her flail if the opponent comes close to her.

If slain, then the duel is over, and the party member gets her XP reward. Speak with Sondal again to continue with more duel opportunities if desired.


No drow innate magic resistance is assigned to Chalinthra. She should have some in the mid 70 percentile range based on other drow Underdark creature files.

Mod content[]

Mods icon This section is about unofficial content that is only available via fan-made mods.

Installation of the Sword Coast Stratagems Mod makes some minor changes to her creature scripts, and abilities. An SCS Cleric AI script is supplied for more intelligent attack and defense behavior, as well as spell use. Chalinthra now has 2-pips in Flail weapon proficiency and 2 pips in sword and shield weapon style.

With this mod, she will instantly prepare for battle with (previously cast) Armor of Faith, Draw Upon Holy Might (spell), Protection From Fire (priest), Righteous Magic, Physical Mirror, Free Action (spell), and Chaotic Commands.

She is scripted to apply Cure Serious Wounds and a Heal spell on self if certain conditions are met.

Withe the "Smarter Priests" component, her AI will be looking for various protective buffs, equipped items and opponent class conditions to help determine appropriate vulnerabilities for offensive or disabling spell casts. She will attempt to clear clouds with Zone of Sweet Air.

All sorts of Priest spells are available to attack with, including various cause wounds, Slay Living, Unholy Blight, Hold Person (priest) and many more.

Note that with her initial buffs, if left in place and not removed her physical stats will be much improved and will fight in melee combat at an increased ability - striking more easily and dealing more damage with her flail.
