Baldur's Gate Wiki

The Fell Ghast is another variety of the Undead brood of Ghast found in the game, although only in Baldur's Gate II: Shadows of Amn and Baldur's Gate II: Enhanced Edition.


This creature is slightly enhanced with a high physical strength, improved THAC0, some minor physical resistance, as well as immunity to normal weapons. Like it's brethren, they can't take much punishment and will be destroyed rapidly by damage.

As with other ghast creatures, a successful attack will expose the target to a potential disabling Paralyze status effect, although a saving throw negates. But, even if that effect is defended against, a second nauseating disease effect must be saved against as well. See the GHAST1.ITM page for details.

Like most undead, they are immune to a number of status effects as summarized in the InfoBox.

These creatures typically carry a random treasure in the "wealthy" category.

The Golem Construction for Spellcasters mod adds an item that can be recovered from a dead Fell Ghast (and other ghasts in general). This item is a body part component that is required in order to build a specific type of golem by a spell caster of sufficient skill.

The Sword Coast Stratagems mod raises this creature's strength to 21.
