Baldur's Gate Wiki

Scalding Steam is an innate spell-like ability available to the Ice Golem creatures in the game saga.


The spell effect is uninterruptable and takes almost no time to deploy. The scripted innate spell will target the center of the golem and explode in "White Fireball" burst in all directions, to a distance of 15' diameter.


Any creatures in the Area of Effect are exposed to 10d3 Cold damage. A Saving throw versus Breath will negate the damage. If the saving throw is missed, the damage is inflicted, and a graphics lighting effect instantly plays on top of the affected creature.

The spell effect can be blocked by Magic resistance or an AoE spell protection such as Minor Globe of Invulnerability.

Spell Immunity: Necromancy can block this spell, as well as the Cloak of Mirroring.
