Baldur's Gate Wiki

Statue GORSTA11 has an appearance of an Elven female mage wearing a enchanted robe and wielding a dagger. She's found in the Watcher's Keep Altar Level near to the Altar.


Part of the second activated group (4 - 8) Statues (WK Altar Level) that attack the party based on actions taken at the Altar and interacting with the Altar Guardian spirit.

This mage will initially be able to launch self-buff for protection and then continue to cast spells to remove illusions, summon allies, attack party members and further protect herself as the battle continues. See the InfoBox for most of her scripted spell casting. Expect a Time Stop and a Symbol, Stun (wizard) attack.

The creature behaves as a high-level mage and can fail morale checks and will call for help if needed.

Only the Dagger +3 is recoverable from her slain body.
