Baldur's Gate Wiki

Devil shades are first found in Dragomirs Tomb. Four devil shades will spawn from the globe machine in Watcher's Keep Final Seal the second time the purple button is pushed.

Devil shades are also random spawns that can interrupt rest in certain locations, such as the Watcher's Keep Altar Level and Watcher's Keep Elemental Level.

Devil shades are a tougher version of Shadow fiends and they share their resistance set, including their weakness to electricity damage. They can Level drain when their melee strike connects.

When a devil shade is heavily wounded, two Shadow fiends will spawn. The creature will then attempt to heal itself with Cure Critical Wounds effect.
