Baldur's Gate Wiki

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


The spell effect is uninterruptable and takes almost no time to deploy. A bullet projectile is launched at a single target in range.

It will strike the target and inflict 1d4 (crushing) damage. A Blindness effect is applied to the target lasting 10 seconds. The blindness effect can be blocked by magic resistance and also has a level 2 spell power, so it can also be stopped with protection such as Minor Globe of Invulnerability or Minor Spell Deflection.

The crushing damage will be blocked by magic resistance, and also can be blocked by a spell protection because it too has a level 2 spell power. A Stoneskin could also absorb the crushing damage.
