Baldur's Gate Wiki

An Earth Mephit is an extra-planar "outsider" (i.e., linked to various Elemental, Quasi-Elemental and Outer planes of existence). These creatures are similar to Imps and are found in a number of areas during the Baldur's Gate II games.


An Earth Mephit can attack twice per round in melee for 1d4 (crushing) damage. It also has the innate Stone Spit ability.

The mephit will initiate the Stone Spit attack, which launches a stone bullet at a target in range and it deals 1d6 (crushing) damage. The unmodified game Earth Mephit can only attempt this innate ability attack every 5 rounds after the initial launch, meaning that it will likely be dead well before its second attempt. A Mephit is really only a threat in large numbers.

The Earth Mephit have no magic, physical damage or elemental resistance. The InfoBox summarizes their special abilities and immunities to certain status effects. The game has the creature with a memorized Blur spell but it isn't scripted to use it, so it is probably just a developer creature file copy-paste remnant.
