Baldur's Gate Wiki

Vampires (Elder) are powerful undead creatures that feed upon the blood of the living, granting them strength and formidable supernatural abilities. Their physical attacks can inflict a Level drain effect.

These vampires are superior in several attributes over the "standard" 8 and 9 Hit dice versions. They regenerate twice as fast, can only be struck with weapons of +2 or greater enchantment, have better Attacks per round and THAC0, and immune to Fatigue. They have greater Hit point values as well.

If defeated, they provide a higher XP reward.

See the Vampire page for a breakdown of abilities and discussion.

The Sword Coast Stratagems mod applicable to this creature discussion is on the Vampire page in Mod Content section. It should be noted that SCS has revised the name "Vampire" to "Elder Vampire" for applicable creatures in the game files. The Modification also adds an additional creature file DW#ASVM1.CRE for use by the mod's scripts to provide additional Elder vampires in certain areas, spawns and scripts based on difficulty settings, for greater challenge.
