Avarice has a slight resistance to all elements and magic but can still be caught in spells such as Web and affected significantly by offensive magic. His moral is unusually strong and is unlikely to break. He has the ability to cloak at will and does so often; reappearing soon after to backstab party members. Avarice always casts Cloudkill at the start of combat.
|“|| I am the warrior's curse|
I steal his future
I mar his past
The more he has, the less it seems
He becomes a slave
Of glittering things
Yet I hunger... Feed me that which glitters beyond all else.
- As the race golem was only introduced in the original Baldur's Gate II: Shadows of Amn, in Baldur's Gate: Tales of the Sword Coast Avarice is handled as being what he appears to be: a dwarf. This is changed in the Enhanced Edition.
- The same applies to Avarice's class, which is changed from mage/thief to iron golem.
- In the original Baldur's Gate: Tales of the Sword Coast, Avarice as the warden has neither sex assigned; all other versions of him are male.This icon indicates content from the original Baldur's Gate: Tales of the Sword Coast campaign.
