Baldur's Gate Wiki

Ego Whip is an innate Psionic Ability available to a few creatures in the game, such as Entu and The Master Brain.

The ability is initiated via script by the AI and isn't interruptible. The effect is directed at a single creature target in visible range of the source creature. The Ego Whip will require the target to make a Saving throw vs. death or suffer a Stun effect that lasts 4 rounds. The effect is non magical and can't be dispelled.

The Psionic ability will bypass Magic resistance and can't be blocked by spell protections such as Spell Immunity, Spell Deflection or Spell Trap.

Sword Coast Stratagems mod alters this ability slightly. It correctly changes the secondary type to "Disabling", so now the Cloak of Mirroring can't block it, A few other internal Opcode changes are made to work better for certain scripting functions, and to better deal with multiple Ego Whip applications on a single creature.

The SCS version from the Master Brain has a huge range - and will essentially target and expose all party members on the Mind Flayers in Underdark area map to the spell effect. The Master Brain only has one scripted use of this attack in the unmoded and modded game.
