Gracien is one of three mages who have been hired by Baron Ployer to curse Jaheira, which begins one of her Companion quests during the Baldur's Gate II: Shadows of Amn campaign. The other two mages are Terrece and Malacazar.

Gameplay[]

If the party should face this mage due to hostilities breaking out, then this wizard will engage in immediate spell casting attempts.

Most probably he will be able to use Shadow Door to turn improved invisible at the outset of battle. From there he'll further self-protect with Mirror Image. As seen in his memorized spells in the InfoBox, his offensive damage and disabling spells are all scripted for use. Expect a Power Word, Silence cast if he can detect either another mage or cleric party member.

Most likely, unless disrupted - a Hold Person (wizard), Lightning Bolt, Chaos and Cone of Cold will be cast. As a conjurer, its also possible a Monster Summoning III spell may be attempted to bring forth some temporary help.

The sooner the mage is damaged and disrupted, the quicker he will be put out of action.

Notes[]

  • Gracien drops a Quarterstaff from inventory, not his weapon slot, so he can only use Darts if he runs out of spells.

Mod content[]

Mods icon This section is about unofficial content that is only available via fan-made mods.

The Sword Coast Stratagems mod revises this wizard, and especially with the "Smarter Mages" component. He may be assigned an Enchanter specialty mage kit.

When hostilities commence, Gracien is scripted to self-protect with an Invisibility spell immediately, and a second later a group of protective buffs (previously cast) will initiate upon self. These spells include Mirror Image, Spell Immunity (or "Dispelling Screen" with Spell Revisions), Armor (spell), and Stoneskin.

With the more advanced AI scripts, the creature's actions will be determined by the party's protections and detected vulnerabilities. A whole slew of offensive and disabling spells are available to the wizard, many that aren't provided to the unmodified wizard. His spell choices are commensurate with his kit and experience level.

Gracien has a prepared Minor Sequencer loaded and can unleash it during the battle.

With the Spell Revisions mod installed, this mage's spells will be the SR versions.
