Baldur's Gate Wiki

Statue GORSTA04 has an appearance of a Dwarven male cleric wearing plate mail and wielding a mace. He's found in the Watcher's Keep Altar Level near to the Altar.

Note: This statue may not be present if the party entered this dungeon with an average XP level below 14.


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 cleric will begin combat by self-buffing with Regeneration (spell), Death Ward, and Defensive Harmony instantly applied.

Further spell casting is scripted, most of which are interruptible, as shown in the InfoBox.

He has the ability to cast Creeping Doom, as several of the Knights of the Vigil do, such as Sister Garlena.

If he is pressed upon by a party member in melee range, he can engage in melee combat with his mace, although he is a cleric and has only 1 attack per round.

The creature mostly behaves as a spell casting cleric and can fail morale checks and will call for help if needed.

No items are recoverable from his slain body.
