Baldur's Gate Wiki

Sahuagin Priestess is predominantly an underwater species resembling atropomorphic sharks and are found in Baldur's Gate II , Baldur's Gate II: Throne of Bhaal and Baldur's Gate II: Enhanced Edition. They can breathe in or out of water. It worships Sekolah, the Shark God.

If forced into close quarters combat, the Priestess will engage with its spear, of which it has specialized proficiency.

Upon detecting a hostile opponent, the Priestess will prep with a Barkskin on self, and the wizard's spell Remove Magic on nearest enemy, and then a Draw Upon Holy Might (spell) onself, then a Strength of One on the entire Sahuagin group. Depending on her own and allies hit point loss, various cure serious and light wounds will be attempted to heal damage. The priestess will not cast any disabling or offensive spells. If any party member is invisible or hidden, the Priestess will attempt an Invisibility Purge.

The Sword Coast Stratagems mod assigns a new AI script to the creature to improve tactical "Smarter Priest" spell casting behavior. Additionally, a new repertoire of memorized Priest spells is carried, and all can be used by the script as determined by the opponent's actions and immunities/vulnerabilities. Most likely the Priestess will force cast (previously cast) the following spells at the outset of hostilities: Iron Skins, Spiritual Hammer, Draw Upon Holy Might (spell), Armor of Faith and Free Action.
