Baldur's Gate Wiki

The Greater 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. The creature is an ally of the summoner who brought forth the creature.


This creature is slightly enhanced with some elemental and missile resistance. 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.

This creature is a "Summoned" one and can be destroyed with a Death Spell or Death Fog or similar banishment magics.
