Disambiguation icon Not to be confused with Ioin Gallchobhair.

Gallchobhair is a member of The Hatchetman's Party, a band of heavyweight hitters who are encountered within the Sewers located beneath the Temple District in the city of Athkatla.

This is one mean group of individuals so be prepared for a good fight. Gallchobhair is an 11th level elven fighter who may be equipped with what some might think of as low-level weapons but, with a strength of 17 and a dexterity of 18 combined with that elvish grace and fluidity in battle, he'll be standing in the back slinging arrows left and right. And once his quiver is empty, he will be right in there hacking away.

See The Hatchetman's Party page for tips on how to beat these guys in a fight.

Installation of the Sword Coast Stratagems Mod makes some minor revisions to Gallchobhair. He is assigned a default SCS tactical Fighter script for smarter combat behavior, threat recognition and targeting decision logic. He now has 5 pips in Longbow weapon proficiency, and 2 pips in Long Sword. Random SCS treasure is also placed in his inventory. Gallchobhair will focus on missile weapon firing attacks from a distance. If a party member closes to melee range, he will either try and retreat back a bit and continue his missile attacks, or just engage in melee combat. With his grandmastery in bows, high dexterity and elven racial bonus he'll be able to fire 3.5 arrows per round and deal 1d6 +5 missile damage.
