They can not only throw rocks with a great degree of accuracy and power, but they can leap into the air and crash down atop or next to a witcher with terrifying speed.
Both attacks serve to harm and stun victims. A gargoyle can also stomp the ground with such force that they can stun and partially blind nearby threats.
That stomp in particular is one of its most dangerous attacks if you're at close range. Its wind-up animation is only half a second and the shockwave it makes both hits quite hard and covers a very large area, almost beyond your Roll range if you were in melee combat with the Gargoyle.
By far, your best option for fighting one of these is with Quen. Turn it on and wade in with sword swinging. You'll be able to take the stomp shockwave with no damage and not getting staggered and should be able to get multiple hits in before you have to roll away perhaps 5 fast attacks if it uses the stomp and not melee attacks.
If you see it raise its arm it's going to do a melee combo and you'll only handle the first hit so roll away. Rinse and repeat.

The numbers of gargoyles grew steadily fewer. At last, humans came to abandon these alliances altogether for the most part , and the surviving gargoyles fled into the wilds to hide.
By , there were only eight gargoyle clans left in the world. Beyond this general course of gargoyle history, a few specific events stand out.
The earliest recorded event in gargoyle history took place during the reign of Caesar Augustus 27 B. By Augustus's day, there were few gargoyles living in the lands taken up by the Roman Empire, largely because there was so little wilderness left in it for them to hide in, but occasionally, gargoyles were brought before the Emperor.
At that time, gargoyles' garments did not turn to stone with them in the daytime, and so when a gargoyle awakened from stone sleep at sunset, his or her garments would be torn asunder by the process, rendering him or her naked.
Augustus, a man with strong "family values" and very desirous of restoring high standards of morality to Rome, was displeased by this, and had one of his advisers, a powerful wizard, cast a " spell of humility " over the entire gargoyle race, causing their clothes to turn to stone with them henceforth.
At about this time, the legendary Irish hero Cu Chullain was accompanied on many of his adventures, including his defeat of the Banshee , by a gargoyle beast which came to be known as the " Hound of Ulster " although later on, the name came to be applied to Cu Chullain himself and the gargoyle beast came to be forgotten.
About five hundred years later, King Arthur Pendragon of Britain also made the acquaintance of gargoyles, although the medieval romancers who wrote about him and his knights likewise ignored their part in the history of Camelot.
And so, by the dawn of the High Middle Ages in the 11th century , gargoyles had become so rare that humans believed them to be extinct and few mourned that.
Indeed, in Europe the 11th century saw the end of one of the last alliances between humans and gargoyles, that formed between King Macbeth of Scotland - and Demona , which ended in when Demona betrayed Macbeth to the forces of Malcolm Canmore , bringing about the destruction of Demona's Clan as well as Macbeth's downfall.
The Age of Gargoyles was at an end. In spite of this, humans vaguely remembered that gargoyles were protectors, and although it did nothing to change their opinions about living gargoyles, they still placed gargoyle-like sculptures atop their castles and cathedrals, believing that they would protect these places from demons and evil spirits.
So some measure of the true legacy of gargoyles remained. In , humanity as a whole suddenly became aware of the existence of living gargoyles once again when Goliath and the Manhattan Clan were revealed to the public in New York City by the Hunters , and most of them were terrified.
Most of the human citizens of New York called out for the gargoyles to be destroyed or captured and locked away, and some of them even joined an organization of gargoyle-hunters called Quarrymen.
The years that follow for gargoyles will be dark and dangerous ones, but in the end, humans would gradually come to realize their true nature, and learn to at least tolerate them.
At some point before , the United Nations will finally adopt the " Gargoyle Minority Protection Act ", which will grant the gargoyles Protected Minority status and treat their scattered clans as an independent nation-state.
Gargoyles will still be only grudgingly tolerated at this point, however, not altogether accepted.
They will make a comeback, however; by , their numbers will have increased to twelve clans one at New Camelot in the Antarctic, and another at Wyvern Hill in Scotland , and a thirteenth clan, the Liberty Clan , will be founded on Queen Florence Island in Gargoyles are neither mammals, nor reptiles, nor birds.
They are part of a biological class called gargates , presumably descended from the great reptiles of the Mesozoic Era or the late Paleozoic Era.
The most prominent biological feature of gargoyles is that they turn to "stone" in the daytime.
This trait of theirs, known as " stone sleep ," is dealt with in greater detail in a separate entry; suffice it to say that at sunrise gargoyles and gargoyle beasts turn to stone or, to be more accurate, an organic substance similar to stone and remain that way until sunset.
Of course, it should be noted that the Sevarius was probably basing his theory on the assumption that gargoyles use their wings for flight.
Since they can only glide, the need for this much energy either from the sun or food seems unnecessary. Stone sleep is an exotic biological process common to all gargates and is not magical.
Gargoyles have a greater resistance to the cold than humans do, possibly due to a thicker skin, or hide.
Gargoyles are probably at least partly warm-blooded, especially considering their activity level in cold weather.
However, because they obtain most of their energy from heat and sunlight during their sleep, they could be considered partially cold-blooded as well.
Gargoyles are strongly in tune with the natural cycles of Earth, and there is some evidence that due to the nature of their stone sleep, they may not be capable of living off of the planet.
Like most animals, but unlike most mammals, they lay eggs. Female gargoyles nurse their young with breastmilk, however. Gargoyles do not age during their stone sleep, so they age only half as quickly as humans do.
Thus, a year-old gargoyle would be biologically equivalent to a year-old human. A gargoyle can theoretically live to close to , but for centuries most gargoyles died premature deaths through being slain in battle or smashed in their stone sleep.
Gargoyles such as Hudson who lived to a ripe old age were rare indeed. As a gargoyle gets older, healing from stone sleep becomes more difficult and slower , especially if an injury sustained is severe enough such as Hudson being blinded in one eye when fighting the Archmage.
Gargoyles' appearance varies from clan to clan, and even gargoyles within the same clan look very different, and are usually easily told apart.
Some sort of overall gargoyle anatomical norm does seem to exist, however, judging from the Scottish, Guatemalan, and Japanese clans.
And many gargoyles depart from this "norm" dramatically. The London gargoyles, for example, resemble heraldic animals with feathered wings, and Zafiro of the Mayan Clan looks very much like a winged serpent, with no visible external hind legs.
The Loch Ness gargoyles are semi-amphibious, though the details of their appearance is unknown. Besides their shared trait of stone sleep, the most prominent gargoyle feature is the number of limbs they possess.
Gargoyles are the only living vertebrates with more than four limbs. There are individuals like Zafiro who appear to have only four limbs , but it is possible that x-rays of Zafiro would reveal vestigial legs not visible on the exterior of his body.
Their wings are usually leathery, most commonly bat-like with the digits dividing the wing membrane into multiple segments, but sometimes pterodactyl-like with one continuous membrane and the digits forming a small hand atop the wing as with Brooklyn or web-like in the manner of a flying squirrel as with Lexington.
However, most of the gargoyles in the London Clan, and some members of the Mayan Clan, have covering on their wings that resembles feathers.
Some gargoyles have human-like faces, such as Goliath , Demona , and Angela , while others have long snouts or beaks such as Brooklyn, and still others seem to have a sort of rounded muzzle, more simian in appearance like Broadway or Lexington.
Some gargoyles have hair, while others, such as Lexington and Broadway, are bald. Hairlessness or thin hair seems to hold no significant influence on Gargoyle society or relations.
Hudson's hair is gray and thinner, and has likely if Brooklyn is any indication always been gray.
Hudson is the only living gargoyle of the Wyvern clan to exhibit facial hair, so body-hair may not be common amongst gargoyles. None of the gargoyles have been seen to shave, or indeed even groom, so the growth may take a tremendous amount of time and effort on their part.
These seem to be genetic, but they also suggest a certain amount of individual distinction. No two gargoyles have identical brow-ridges, and the ridges move with their expression, which seems to suggest they are not bone, or are covered in thick soft tissue.
Gargoyle skin color varies noticeably within a clan; for example, Goliath and Angela are both lavender, Demona sky-blue, Hudson a tan color, Brooklyn red, Lexington a sort of khaki, and Broadway turquoise.
Other observed colors are teal, green, golden, tawny, orange, pink, white, pale green, and grey. Hair may be brown, white, black, yellow, or red.
All gargoyles, even web-winged types like Lexington, possess a complicated and highly refined set of additional musculature and skeletal structures above what humans identify as lateral muscles on their dorsal back side allowing use of their powerful wings.
Their tails are prehensile, they possess enlarged canines like those of big cats, and typically have four digits adorning each limb including their wings , though this too seems to have a degree of variance.
Their major hinge joints often feature a type of spike or horn-like growth, particularly protruding from their elbows and knees, and some gargoyles' wings are adorned with these bony ornaments.
Gargoyles' arms end in hands with three clawed fingers and a fully opposable clawed thumb. Their legs are digitigrade, with hip, knee, and ankle joints fully flexible like that of a cat; they walk upright on their toes.
Gargoyles refer to their feet and hands as "talons," and accurately so considering the strength they possess. In the case of their feet, they are roughly talon shaped, with three arched toes each ending in a powerful claw, and a fourth toe on each heel that points backward like that of a bird of prey, perhaps in order to provide the gargoyles with superior grip and balance even in the precarious environs of their preferred habitats.
Some gargoyles, such as Lexington, have no digits in the wing limb, while others, like Brooklyn, have only one digit to support the wing membrane while the others stick out somewhat like fingers of the hand.
Further variances exist between particular individual gargoyles, but physical characteristics tend to share some commonality across individuals from the same clan.
Gargoyles seem to be omnivorous, but like some humans they prefer a general diet focusing on meat or fish as a primary food source.
It can only be inferred from their evidence and physical appearance that gargoyles are descendants of a highly efficient, specialized group of predators.
Hunting from the air would require superb eyesight quite possibly enhanced by whatever biochemical reaction causes the glow of their eyes , sophisticated reaction times, and excellent hearing.
Visual evidence suggests these attributes as well; their ears are pointed and seem to be deeper than human or simian ears, giving them greater reception of noise.
Goliath demonstrates his attenuation to his senses during his first trip through Central Park with Elisa, when he heard the subtle movements of a highly trained, highly coordinated group of special-operations mercenaries, clues that even Elisa with her police background missed.
Gargoyles also seem to have a highly developed sense of smell, often using it to verify an unknown or to initially inspect an area, as Brooklyn did when first meeting Elisa; he gave two quick sniffs and then immediately questioned Goliath as to whether she was a new friend or potentially an enemy.
They seem to also use their sense of smell to steady themselves when surprised. Gargoyles will frequently inhale deeply via their noses when in deep thought, an observable trait across all gargoyles, though because of his philosophical nature, Goliath does this more often.
When gargoyles are awakening from their stone sleep or are angry, their eyes glow. Their ability to see doesn't change when the eyes begin glowing.
Gargoyle eyes have visible irises and whites; a feature which they share with humans, but which most animals lack.
Gargoyles are immensely strong, and can actually scale stone walls, digging their claws into the stone to provide footholds for themselves.
However, despite their wings, they are not capable of actual flight. They can only glide upon air currents.
When gargoyles are not gliding and are on the ground, they can "cape" their wings about or rest them upon their shoulders, which allows the beings to avoid being hindered by them as well as for the cosmetic value with the exception of such gargoyles as Lexington, whose wings are attached to their arms.
It should also be noted that, while incapable of flight per se, gargoyle wings are extremely nimble and powerful.
Gargoyles on the ground use their wings as a projection of their size, often flaring their wings outward to do battle, even in confined spaces.
This serves two purposes: a perceived increase in size, and an extra weapon, as gargoyles will frequently slap their enemies with their wings, or use the back of the wings as a sort of shield.
They also use their wings as we use our arms, tapping objects as Goliath did when he tapped on the camera lens in Macbeth's house or pointing with them when it is more convenient.
At CONvergence , it was explained that gargoyle mating rituals involve "lots of flying," as well as feats of strength. Naturally, gargoyles are biologically very different from humans.
Typically, female gargoyles are only fertile at ages 50, 70, and 90 biologically the human equivalent at age 25, 35, and 45 in the days that fall around the autumnal equinox.
Although both species are sentient and native to Earth, gargoyles and humans cannot produce children together, short of scientific or magical intervention.
It's so rare, there isn't even a cultural taboo against such a relationship. Gargoyles live in clans, gatherings of fairly closely-related gargoyles.
Each clan has a leader, and a second-in-command underneath. The leader's function is self-explanatory; the second-in-command's function is to lead the clan in the leader's absence, and to succeed to the leader position in case the leader is slain or has to step down due to unfitness.
Indeed, leaders of gargoyle clans have to appoint seconds-in-command to ensure a ready-made successor for such an occasion. If the former leader is still capable of participation after stepping down, then he or she can act as an adviser to the successor.
Gargoyles are in many ways, a very communal race, and this is particularly the case with the hatchlings. Gargoyle children are raised by the entire clan, and the concept of biological parentage does not exist.
This custom may have arisen in part due to the high death rate in gargoyle society; since it is entirely possible that a hatchling's biological parents meet death even before his or her hatching, this policy ensures that orphans will not exist in the clan, and that all hatchlings will be cared for, protected, and raised.
Gargoyle clans that practice communal parenting generally do not care about biological relations. All gargoyles in a single generation are brothers and sisters, all of the gargoyles who contributed eggs to that generation are the parents of those gargoyles and the entire clan is all family , sharing in the responsibility of raising the children.
The one notable case of a gargoyle caring about her biological parentage is Angela. After the sudden revelation that Goliath was her biological father courtesy of Sevarius , Angela began seeking a closer relationship with Goliath.
A first time parent, Goliath began acting distant towards his daughter, fearing that giving her special treatment would mean he was favoring her over her rookery siblings because of their biological relationship and turning his back on the Gargoyle Way.
He was also understandably afraid that Angela would eventually start asking about her biological mother Demona, someone Goliath did not want his daughter developing a special relationship with.
Eventually, Diane Maza - a mother of three herself - convinced Goliath that all children sometimes desire special treatment and that he and Angela would naturally be close because she was the only one of his children who chose to leave Avalon with him and he was the only gargoyle parent she knew.
Once he understood that it didn't mean abandoning his clan's customs, Goliath began treating Angela like his daughter.
Angela continued to be interested in biological parentage, later identifying Coldstone as the father of her rookery brother Gabriel.
Whether this will have any effect on the way she will raise her own children is yet unknown. By , Samson 's parentage will be unknown and he will regard himself as the son of his whole clan.
Atypical to this is Demona, whose biological connection to her daughter, Angela, does matter to her. Although Demona would never admit this.
Although hatchlings belong to the entire clan, gargoyles are a strictly monogamous race. They mate for life regardless of orientation , and in nearly all cases, when one gargoyle in a pairing dies, the other remains single thereafter.
Gargoyles gather their eggs in caves or underground chambers called rookeries , generally set in mountains or high cliffs, their preferred habitat.
Wyvern Hill is a good example of such a place. Here they can be safely watched over during their ten-year incubation.
The Scouts Gangrel - Nosferatu were made to observe the Tremere's enemies and to report any important information to their masters quickly and reliably, and would therefore focus on mastering the art of stealth and Flight.
The Warriors Gangrel- Tzimisce were constructed to serve as front-line soldiers, destroying enemy vampires by focusing on Potence and combat abilities which enabled them to deal more damage to their foes.
The Sentinels Nosferatu-Tzimisce were crafted to serve as glorified housekeepers, keeping an eye on their masters' havens and areas of interest and protecting them from harm, which led to them focusing on Fortitude and keeping alert for any intruders.
During the midth-century occurred the uprising in which the bulk of the Gargoyle slaves of Clan Tremere liberated themselves from their masters.
It must have ended around Escaped Victorian Gargoyles are uncommon. They find the world baffling and dangerous.
Their monstrous looks do not allow them to pass through the throng of kine easily, and if recaptured they are inevitably destroyed by their captors.
While travel from Europe to the Americas was not impossible, the logistics of such a task was not easy, and the few Gargoyles who made the crossing found themselves in a world more alien than the one they left behind.
Originally, all Gargoyles were created using the blood of three different clans : the Gangrel , the Nosferatu , and the Tzimisce.
The blood was combined to form three specific types of Gargoyle: scouts Gangrel-Nosferatu , warriors Gangrel-Tzimisce , and sentinels Nosferatu-Tzimisce.
Eventually they evolved into a full-fledged bloodline and became somewhat independent of the Tremere and their blood magic. Those Gargoyles created via the original ritual differ from those that have been Embraced into the bloodline in several ways.
For example, Visceratika is an out-of clan discipline for them. While rare since the Montmartre Pact , some of the old variants survive.
When a Scout Gargoyle is wounded, the flesh around it turns to stone, doubling any wound penalties.
The flesh turns normal again when the Gargoyle has fully regenerated. When alone or without a person they trust, Sentinel Gargoyles find themselves confused and all dice pools halved.
Whenever a Warrior Gargoyle frenzies, a part of their body turns to stone. Any associated activity with the petrified body part is considered an automatic failure until the next evening.
Gargoyles have a strong sense of community. They often keep communal havens. Sometimes Gargoyles petition the Prince for the release of slave Gargoyles, but more often they just tear slave owners to pieces.
With no community, Gargoyles are likely to Embrace and build their own. Gargoyles, regardless of their affiliation, deeply care for each other.
New gargoyles are groomed by all to survive and adhere to the Masquerade despite the difficulties. Special focus is on teaching a fledgling to fly, since this is an experience unique to the Gargoyles.
Slave Gargoyles sleep wherever their masters allow them — closets, basements, crypts, cells.
Free Gargoyles prefer sleeping in havens high above the ground. Bell towers and disused high-rises are favorites.
Gargoyles are often muscle for other Kindred, sometimes in exchange for a bare-bones haven. Most Gargoyles are not Embraced, but are rather created by the Tremere using Kindred from other clans Nosferatu, Gangrel, and Tzimisce.
