You will encounter the Goblin camp in Baldur’s Gate while completing one of the missions in the game named “Remove the Parasites.” The camp is loaded with several leaders whom either you have to defeat or talk through to clear the entire camp. Here’s our Baldur’s Gate 3 Goblin camp guide to walk you through the entire camp and the leaders you will find there.
How to Clear the Goblin Camp in BG3
The location of the Goblin camp is towards the west side of the Druid Grove. Once on the outskirts of the camp, you will have a couple of encounters with low-level enemies. Taking down these enemies should not be a challenge. You will also find a fast travel point here in the courtyard.
There will be a doorway guarded by the Ogre guard. All you need to do is get past the guard to enter the Goblin camp or the fortress as it is well known in the game. As soon as you enter the gates, Shadowheart will prompt a conversation with you. If you are successful in persuading her during this conversation she will tell you the story of her past and the goddess she worships.
The first thing you will come across in the Goblin camp is a goblin torturing a prisoner. You can interact with the torturer and influence him to release the prisoner and set him free. There would be another goblin who would offer your team that he can wound your character for them. However, the team would say no except for Astarion who won’t say anything.
The next thing you will find in the Goblin camp is Volo being held captive by the goblins. Volo is a soon to be a companion in the game. If you can persuade the guard, he will hand over the keys and go for rest. You can then use the keys to free Volo and ask him to escape from the camp. When you complete the mission and head back to your camp, Volo will be awaiting you there, all set to become your companion if you have him in your team.
From here on, you will encounter the three leaders in the Goblin camp. You will have to interact with them and might kill some or all of them. Here’s everything that you need to know about the Goblin camp leaders.
Baldur’s Gate 3 Goblin Camp Guide: Eliminating High Priestess Gut
After releasing Volo from the hands of goblins, you will encounter the first leader in the Goblin camp, High Priestess Gut. She claims to be a healer, who can help you get rid of the eye tadpole infection given to you by the Mind Flayer. She will ask you to go along for the treatment. However, all your companions will warn you to not do so.
If you believe her and go with her, she will take you to her room and give you a potion to drink. If you drink the potion, she will initiate an attack on you. However, you can choose the dialogue box instead of drinking the potion to change your character’s fate. This is one of the many choices and consequences in Baldur’s Gate 3.
When you select the kill her from the dialogue box. Your entire team will gang up on her and kill her without letting any of the goblins becoming hostile. Eliminating High Priestess Gut is essential to save the druid Halsin in Baldur’s Gate 3.
When she is down, you can take a key from her corpse. This will open up her chambers where you will find her bodyguard, Polma waiting for you. Gather your team and attack Polma to take him down. The path from the chambers will lead you to the Underdark area where you will find a quest. You can refer to our guide to know more about the Underdark area in Baldur’s Gate 3.
Once past Polma, you will head straight into a small room occupied by some elves and one dwarf. They will ask your team to leave the room; however, instead of leaving, you have to explore them with the help of barrels in the room. You can then collect all the handy loot the elves have left behind for you. There will be some upgraded items and keys. Use the keys to open up nearby chests and get a huge amount of gold.
Baldur’s Gate 3 Goblin Camp Guide: Eliminating Minthara
The second leader you come across in the Goblin camp is Minthara, the drow. She will be located in the northeastern part of the fortress. You need to interact with and persuade her to believe your false plans. If she does so, she will tell you her plans on attacking the Druid Grove.
Now you have two choices here, either attack and finish her here (which I don’t recommend) or act like helping her and then betray her. If you attack her in her fortress, there is a risk that not all but some goblins might become hostile. On the other hand, if you act like helping her and then betray her in the open, it will be more simple to kill her.
Killing Minthara will give you some rare items such as Xyanyde and Amulet of Misty Step.
Baldur’s Gate 3 Goblin Camp Guide: Eliminating Dror Ragzlin
The last leader you will come across in the Goblin camp in Baldur’s Gate 3 is Dror Ragzlin. Dror Ragzlin is a sort of psychopath, who is obsessed with speaking to dead Mind Flayer. You need Shadowheart to be your character to talk to Dror Ragzlin, as she is a Cleric class character.
There will be several dialogue boxes and depending on what you choose you can influence Ragzlin to not turn into a hostile immediately.
Dror Ragzlin will ask you to interact with Minthara, whom you might have killed depending on the choices you made. However, he won’t come to know that you have killed her. You can attack him, but the only problem is that if you do so, you will be surrounded by at least 6 hostile goblins.
Some players say that you can use the “shove” button to make him fall into the pit below behind him. However, I haven’t used the option myself. Regardless of the option, when you kill Dror Ragzlin, you will get Faithbreaker and a key. The key can be used to open a nearby chest that will give you Amulet of Selûne’s Chosen.
That’s the end of our Baldur’s Gate 3 Goblin camp guide. Once you clear this fortress, you can easily save Druid Halsin and complete the Remove the Parasite quest. You can read some of our other guides on the game to save yourself some time. You can read how to solve the Enclave Library puzzle in the game to get a rare gear. If that’s not tempting enough, you can read about another task where you need to rescue the Gnome and stop the windmill in Baldur’s Gate 3.
