Baldur's Gate Wiki

Panther is a type of great cat animal creature found in Baldur's Gate II: Shadows of Amn and the Baldur's Gate II: Enhanced Edition saga.

They are typically added to wilderness and forested areas as wandering creatures, such as the Forest of Tethir.


This animal attacks when an enemy, or certain other animals are detected.

When this Hunter class creature detects a Food Creature class (such as a deer or rabbit), the panther will chase it down and attack it after a slight delay.

If the creature detects a party member, that will override the food prey script, and the cat will attack.

The beast strikes up to 3 times per round with a claw/bite that's rated as a +1 enchanted weapon for the purposes of what it can strike. See the CATJAG.ITM for weapon attack/damage details.
