Baldur's Gate Wiki

Mist Ball is an innate ability effect available to most Mist Mephit creatures in the game saga.

Mist Ball

This ability launches a ball of stinging mist to cloud the target's vision. The target suffers 1d4 damage unless it makes a Saving Throw vs. Breath Weapon. In addition, the target is blinded for 1 round (no save).


The spell effect is uninterruptable and takes almost no time to deploy. A sparkling projectile is launched at a single target in range. It will strike the target and inflict a 10 second duration Blindness status effect, along with a "Blinded" text message on the screen event display, and a blindness icon on the target's portrait. In addition to this, the target must attempt a Saving throw vs. Breath Attack to negate a 1d4+1 magical energy damage wound.

The innate ability can be blocked by magic resistance and has level 2 spell power, and thus could be blocked by spell protections like Spell Deflection or Minor Globe of Invulnerability.

Note:Despite the in-game description quoted above, the spell actually inflicts 1d4+1 damage and not 1d4 damage, and the blindness duration is 10 seconds and not 1 round.
