Investigate The Murders & Impress The Murder Tribunal

Upon entering the Lower City in Baldur’s Gate 3, the plethora of quests within the bustling city may seem overwhelming. However, armed with a list of targets, your task is straightforward: visit each NPC marked on your mapto warn them of their imminent danger.

One of your targets, Cora Highberry, is at the Wine Festival at Highberry’s Home. Posing as a wine merchant, Meztli is revealed to be Dolor, a shapechanger assassin. To save Cora, you must defeat Dolor’s three duplicates.

Those embracing the Dark Urge can eliminate these marked targets themselves. While morally questionable, it garners favor with the Murder Tribunal, ensuring a smoother process later.

Upon arriving at Figaro Pennygood’s Salon, a cutscene reveals that Dolor has already paralyzed Figaro. To conclude the ‘Investigate the murders’ quest, ensure your party intervenes and defeats Dolor in battle. By looting Dolor’s corpse, you will discover a macabre ‘Hand Bag,’ which you must bring with you to present to the Murder Tribunal.

To find the Murder Tribunal, enter Candulhallow’s Tombstones in Baldur’s Gate 3, a funeral service located northeast of the Elfsong Tavern. Inside, remove the ‘Butterfly on Skull’ paintingto uncover a hidden button, unveiling the path to the Bhaalist Crypt. This step is pivotal in advancing towards the Temple of Bhaal, where the legendary Bloodthirst weapon awaits.

Enter the Bhaalist Crypt and follow the path until you encounter the Murder Tribunal’s guards. Presenting them with the ‘Hand Bag’ earns you an audience with Sarevok Anchev, a Bhaalspawn. You will discover Investigator Valeria imprisoned as a sacrificial offering to Bhaal.

Faced with a pivotal decision, you can either defeat Sarevok or, for those drawn to the Dark Urge, sacrifice Valeriato Bhaal and become an Unholy Assassin. Either decision ultimately grants you access to the Temple of Bhaal in the Undercity beneath Baldur’s Gate.

Choosing to kill Sarevok increases Orin’s inclination to harm your captured companion. Upon confronting her at the temple, you must successfully pass a Charisma Check to persuade her against this action.

Getting Balduran’s Giantslayer is a good idea for the final part of the game. Here’s where and how to unlock the Legendary weapon in Baldur’s Gate 3.

How To Enter The Temple of Bhaal

Becoming an Unholy Assassin streamlines your encounter with the Murder Tribunal. This darker route requires you to recount your murderous deeds before eliminating Investigator Valeria. Following this, Sarevok baptizes you and awards you the Amulet of Bhaal. This amulet is essential for entering the Temple of Bhaal in the Undercity and, if equipped, inflicts Bleeding upon targets.

Opting to spare Valeria and defeat Sarevok closely aligns with the moral integrity of adventurers in Baldur’s Gate 3, rewarding you with the Sword of Chaos and Sarevok’s Horned Helmet. By choosing this route, access to the temple is still secured, as the amulet can still be looted from Sarevok’s corpse.

With one of the best amulets in Baldur’s Gate 3 secured, proceed to the temple’s entrance in the Undercity, situated in the sewers close to the Undercity Ruins, at the coordinates (X:-139, Y:934).

Presenting the amulet allows you to enter Bhaal’s temple, guiding you toward a spacious area on the path to the temple. Regardless of your allegiance as a Bhaal Assassin, a final challenge awaits. Presented as a test, your party will be ambushed by formidable Bhaal assassins.

, such as Invisibility or Gaseous Form, on the entire party. This strategy lets you stealthily bypass the attackers and head straight to the Temple of Bhaal without engaging in combat.

Upon entering this area, the Bhaal assassins remain concealed, detectable only by passing a staggering DC30 Perception Check per assassin group. The main antagonist of this battle is Farslayer of Bhaal Ghislev. This encounter is particularly challenging due to Farslayer’s Ritual Chant: Bhaal’s Power Word Kill.

How To Beat Farslayer of Bhaal Ghislev

Farslayer’s Ritual Chant targets any of your party members within 55m of him during his turn, resulting in instant death for those in range. To counter this, employ high-damage ranged-based weapons or spells and use teleportation abilities when possible. You and your party must act fast, as Farslayer will continuously try to close the distance between you.

After overcoming the Bhaal assassins, continue towards the Temple of Bhaal. Inside, confront Orin and rescue her victim lying on the central platform. The final hurdle is to defeat Orin, regarded as one of Act 3’s most challenging boss fights.

Upon starting the battle, Orin transforms into her Slayer Form, empowered by a blessing from Bhaal that grants her seven Unstoppable Charges, replenishing each turn. To defeat her,
you must strategically eliminate all these Unstoppable Charges within a single turn
, a prerequisite to inflicting any damage on her.

Upon her defeat, you will discover the Netherstone embedded in her dagger, enabling you to acquire both items simultaneously. Following the cutscene, the Bloodthirst legendary weapon is automatically added to your inventory, marking the culmination of the Temple of Bhaal quest in Baldur’s Gate 3.
