How To Get Into Wyrm Rock Fortress In Baldur's Gate 3 (BG3)

Getting into Wyrm Rock Fortress is challenging, as the drawbridge is raised and heavily guarded. However, you can gain entry in several ways if you’re clever or persuasive enough.

Past The South Span Checkpoint

The most sensible option is to take the long way around by climbing east of the South Span Checkpoint. Follow the path up, jump onto the platform, and climb the ladder and boxes to sneak past the guards. Just be careful not to return the way you came, or they’ll stop you.

Then, you can try bribing or persuading the guards at the Southern Checkpoint. A successful Persuasion check may convince them to let you pass for 20,000 gold. Alternatively, a Deception check of 30 could trick them into thinking you have business with Ulder Ravengard.

Open Hand Temple Murders

Investigating the murders at the Open Hand Temple can earn you an entry pass from Sister Yannis. Speak to her inside the temple after examining the crime scene.

Investigate the Suspicious Toys

Helping Arfur Gregorio with his toy investigation in Sharess’ Caress tavern is another way to blackmail him into giving you his pass. Upon investigating the Requisitioned Barn, you will discover that these toys are bombs.

Sharess’ Caress Pass

Feeling stealthy? After picking the locked door, you can pickpocket Jara’s pass from the Sharess’ Caress balcony, though disturbing her and Naoise starts a challenging battle. Or sneak around the guards again and climb down the prison entrance on the fortress side to gain covert access.
