The Elves' Bane, also known as the Girdle of Piercing, is a magic girdle which gives an armor class bonus of 3 against missile and piercing attacks. This item appears in Baldur's Gate, Baldur's Gate: Enhanced Edition and Baldur's Gate II: Shadows of Amn and it will also appear in Baldur's Gate II: Enhanced Edition.

In Baldur's Gate, it can be obtained by slaying an ogre with a girdle fetish during the side quest Unshey's Belt. In Baldur's Gate II, it is dropped by Kalah in the Circus Tent.

In-game descriptionEdit

An infamous highwayman in his day, Pandar of Scardale made quite a name for himself vexing the elves of Cormanthor forest. To their annoyance he continually used the wood to escape the law; and with the aid of this girdle, the elves' arrows as well. Unfortunately for Pander, pit-traps and starvation proved a slower, but effective, substitution.
