Baldur's Gate Wiki

Statue GORSTA02 has an appearance of an Elven male fighter wearing helmet, plate mail and wielding a halberd. He's found in the Watcher's Keep Altar Level near to the Altar.


Part of the first initial (2-4) Statues (WK Altar Level) that attack the party based on actions taken at the Altar and interacting with the Altar Guardian spirit.

This fighter will move toward the closest party member detected and engage in melee combat until destroyed or incapacitated.

The creature behaves as an ordinary fighter and can fail morale checks and will call for help if needed.

No items are recoverable from his slain body.


The creature file has assigned 5 pips in Bastard Sword and 2 pips in sword and shield style to this elf. Probably a near copy-paste of GORSTA01. There are legacy stat proficiencies for spear in the file, so this elf is only "specialized" in halberd use. This is probably just a coding omission.

Race is changed to Golem.

SCS adjusts a probable coding omission that the base game has and reconfigures the elf to have 5 pips to Halberd weapon proficiency and 2 pips for two-handed weapon fighting style.

Three ready to use potions are provided for the warrior to boost abilities or heal wounds when hit points fall to a preset threshold.
