Baldur's Gate Wiki

Lightning Bolt (Mephit) is an innate ability effect available to most Lightning Mephit creatures in the game saga.


The spell effect is uninterruptable and takes almost no time to deploy. A lightning bolt projectile is launched at a single target in range. It will strike the target and inflict 1d4 electricity damage.

The innate ability has no saving throw. It can be blocked by magic resistance. The bolt also has a level 3 spell power, and thus could be blocked by spell protections like Spell Deflection or Minor Globe of Invulnerability. The bolt will not bounce, unlike the arcane Lightning Bolt spell.
