Version HistoryEdit

  • Build 2014 -- touch attacks now do 1d2 (plus Strength) impact damage, meaning that Ghoul Touch no longer will be a damage-less debuff applier.[1]
  • Baldur's Gate: Enhanced Edition -- no longer creates a pseudo-weapon that requires a proficiency to use well. In addition, you get a +4 touch attack THAC0 bonus.[1]
