Baldur's Gate Wiki

Drow Priestess (Underdark) is a Drow Cleric that are found throughout the Underdark and Ust Natha.


They are often grouped with Drow Warrior (Underdark) as a member of an ambush, war party or guards. If forced into melee combat, the Cleric will attack with their Drow Flail. This creature will cast a party friendly or self-defensive buff and then offensive/disabling spells in combat, if not disrupted.

She will open up with a instant self-buff spell group of Defensive Harmony, Righteous Magic and Strength of One. All allied drow nearby may benefit from two of those spells.

All of the scripted spells listed in the InfoBox are able to be cast during the battle, barring interruption. Several predetermined healing spells are set to cast when the Priestess is damaged to a predetermined threshold.

Installation of the Sword Coast Stratagems mod makes a few changes to this creature. Several new and varied extra spells are provided. A single pip in Flail/Morningstar weapon proficiency is provided, and one pip in sword and shield style. If the "Smarter Priests" component is installed there will be more aggressive self-buffing and better spell utilization on attack. A default SCS Priest script is assigned for tactical and defensive/healing behavior. An SCS random treasure is in the creature's inventory.

With SCS, she will open battle buffed with the following (previously cast) spells: Armor of Faith, Spiritual Hammer, and Free Action (spell).

If the Spell Revisions Mod is installed, the drow's memorized spells will be the SR versions. If so, then the Spiritual Hammer can strike at distance.
