Baldur’s Gate 3 – Hunt The Devil (Side Quest) Guide

Game Guides

As expected with any typical RPG game these days, Baldur’s Gate 3 also comes with a ton of optional side quests that you can try and complete.

One of these side quests is Hunt The Devil which is available whilst exploring The Risen Road, the quest itself can be obtained whilst on Act 1 / Chapter 1

It will involve Anders telling you about a devil that needs dealing with. However, you will be able to side with either Anders or Karlach during this quest.

HOW TO UNLOCK:

  • ACT (CHAPTER) UNLOCKED: Act 1 (Chapter 1)
  • LOCATION: The Risen Road
  • QUEST GIVER: Anders

WALKTHROUGH:

  1. Speak to Anders at The Risen Road (Top Left of the map). Anders will tell you that this area is under Tyr’s protection and that you should remain at ease. (Choose whichever dialogue you want, depending on your play style)
  2. Eventually you will find out that Anders needs you to hunt down a devil and that the devil cannot of gone far
  3. The devil that you need to go and see should then be marked on your map, head there
  4. However, as soon as you travel close to the river you will get stopped by a woman with a crossbow.
  5. You will soon discover that this woman was on the front-line of a Blood War and she is the ‘devil’ that Anders is after. Her name is Karlach.
  6. Again choose any dialogue option that best suits your play style.

SIDING WITH KARLACH

(NOTE: For the Gale companion quest – Wizard Of Waterdeep you will need the Sword of Justice. So you can either choose to Kill Karlach and befriend Anders or befriend Karlach and kill Anders since the sword can be found on his body. Also, if you are feeling even more evil kill the both of them, your choice!)

  1. When you first meet up with Karlach, make sure you select the So you want me to kill the people hunting you? option and agree to help her out (In doing so you will now be able to side with her and you will also gain Astarion Approval)
  2. Head back to Anders and finish him off.
  3. Once Anders has been dealt with you can then loot everyone, you can also get the Sword of Justice from Anders at this point too
  4. Return to Karlach and tell her the good news.

SIDING WITH ANDERS

(NOTE: For the Gale companion quest – Wizard Of Waterdeep you will need the Sword of Justice. So you can either choose to Kill Karlach and befriend Anders or befriend Karlach and kill Anders since the sword can be found on his body. Also, if you are feeling even more evil kill the both of them, your choice!)

  1. After speaking with Anders and following the ‘Devil’ marker on your map, you will inevitably bump into the injured Karlach. Karlach is the woman Anders wants dead.
  2. Feel free to go through the various dialogue options with Karlach but make sure to pick the more hostile options.
  3. However, if you do not pick the hostile options for whatever reason and still want her dead, then you can go ahead and finish her off after the conversation ends and whilst she sits helplessly on the other side of the river, fight her and finish her off!
  4. When Karlach is dealt with, make sure to examine her body. Here you can use the ARCANA – Examine the glyphs and sigils marked on her flesh option (optional) and off course make sure to take her head.
  5. Return to Anders and tell him the good news. You will receive the Sword of Justice
