Gremishka are a type of Monstrosity and non-playable race in Baldur's Gate 3. They can be found in Rosymorn Monastery during Act One.

The vicious product of spells gone wrong, these cat-like creatures delight in tormenting magic-users, relishing in the unstable effect magic has on them.

Tactics[edit | edit source]

Gremishkas aren't the most imposing type of Monstrosity around, yet they make up for it through numbers and their chaotic reaction to magic. Using something as simple as a Fire Bolt can lead to a chain reaction as the Wild Magic effects they create can trigger other gremishka's Allergy condition. Their Evasion passive also makes it tricky kill them with AoE spells like Fireball.

The simplest approach is to rely on physical attacks and avoid using magic. So long as no spells are cast, a fight against these cat-like creatures will prove to be quite easy.
