Baldur's Gate Wiki

Ghaunadaur Priest is a drow priestess and is amongst a group of Ghaunadaur cultists with their various monsters and slimes. They have gathered on a large circular platform in Ust Natha. The cultists will be hostile and attempt to slay any who intrude within range of their group. The leader is accompanied by another two drow - a cleric leader and mage.

The Priestess will begin combat with an attempt to cast a defensive buff, and then go on the offensive with a choice of ranged spells. Any opponent in range may be engaged in melee and or touch range attacks with Cause Serious Wounds or Cause Critical Wounds. It will try and heal itself from damage when wounded at 50% with a Cure Medium Wounds.

Installation of the Sword Coast Stratagems Mod makes some changes to this priestess. The default AI is changed to a "Smarter Priest" SCS version, which will allow for evaluating threats and looking for vulnerabilities in opponents, which in turn influences spell casting choice and attack/defense options. An entire new repertoire of available priest spells is included.

SCS will trigger an opening preparatory self buff including Armor of Faith, Draw Upon Holy Might (spell) and Free Action (spell). Afterwards the AI will react to its gathered threat and vulnerability assessments and make appropriate offensive and disabling spell casts. If engaged in melee range, the cleric will fight with its flail and try to get off touch range Cause Serious Wounds and Cause Critical Wounds spells. It may also try to conjure a summoned creature to assist.

The Priest is assigned one pip in flail weapon proficiency and one in single weapon fighting style. A random SCS treasure is included in the inventory.
