Heartland Magazine exclusive: Baldur’s Gate 3’s Main Story Mission Revealed – Rescuing Halsin, the First Druid of Emerald Grove
In an exciting turn of events, the highly anticipated game Baldur’s Gate 3 unveils one of its thrilling main story missions. Players will embark on a daring quest to rescue Halsin, the esteemed First Druid of Emerald Grove, who has been captured by goblins at a nearby camp. This precarious situation has led to increased tensions between the Druids and Tieflings residing at the grove.
To begin this mission, players must travel west from Emerald Grove, where they will stumble upon the Blighted Village. This once serene town has been overrun by goblins, presenting players with various options. They can either sneak past the goblins, negotiate their way out of combat, or choose to engage in a fight with these formidable creatures.
After successfully navigating the Blighted Village, players must continue heading west until they reach the goblin camp. Here, they should head southwest to find a courtyard area where the goblins congregate. Their journey will then take them north, where they will come face to face with a towering ogre guarding a set of imposing doors.
Passing through the doors, players will find themselves in the Shattered Sanctum. Overcoming a dialogue check is crucial in order to progress further. Once cleared, players will come across Priestess Gut seated upon a grand throne. Just beyond the throne lies a seemingly unremarkable wooden bridge, which leads to the Worg Pens.
In this eerie location, players will make a startling discovery – a cage housing goblin children and a bear. Astonishingly, the bear is revealed to be none other than Halsin, who assumed this form as a means of escaping his captors. At this crucial juncture, players must decide whether to intimidate the goblins into releasing Halsin, allow the torture to continue, or engage in combat.
Ultimately, this pivotal point in the quest forces players to make a crucial decision. They can choose to side with the Emerald Grove’s Druids by attacking the goblins or opt to align themselves with the goblins, potentially attacking Emerald Grove by killing Halsin. Alternatively, players can opt to leave both factions to face their own fates, curious to observe the outcome.
Regardless of the path chosen, rescuing Halsin successfully unlocks new possibilities for players as they progress through their individual questlines in Baldur’s Gate 3. Brave adventurers must mentally prepare themselves for the challenges and consequences that lie ahead as they embark on this captivating main story mission.
