Baldur's Gate Wiki

A Lesser Earth Elemental is the weakest variant of the Earth elementals encountered in the game. This page covers those Lesser Earth Elementals that are encountered as stand alone creatures (usually enemies) and the creature summoned by the Staff of Earth (SUMELEAR.cre).

An infobox for the creature summoned by the 5th level wizard spell Conjure Lesser Earth Elemental (ELEARSU1.cre) is found on the spell page.

Note: a summoned creature's gender is "Summoned", and thus can be destroyed/banished with a Death Spell. Summoned creatures provide no XP if defeated.


  • They can inflict 4d8 crushing damage using a +3 enchanted melee weapon attack (see infobox), but only get one attack per round. The attack has speed factor of 0 and a range of 1. Any Strength modifiers apply.
