The Arcane Tower in the Underdark holds many secrets to uncover in Baldur’s Gate 3, but you’ll need to access its basement first to fully explore this massive structure. Here is a guide to reaching the basement levels.
How to Reach the Arcane Tower Basement in Baldur’s Gate 3
Navigating the Arcane Tower Basement:
Embarking on your journey to the Arcane Tower Basement requires a strategic approach to bypass arcane turrets and embrace the towering mushrooms that adorn the cliff’s edge.
- Turret Trouble: As you near the Arcane Tower, two arcane turrets spring to life, targeting your party. Engaging in turn-based mode can mitigate damage, but alternatively, sprinting past the turrets is an option. After the dash, you can choose to camp and restore your party’s health using resources.
- Finding the Mushrooms: Navigate to the rear of the turret stationed on the tower’s stairway. This route leads to the coveted mushrooms. These massive fungi act as your stepping stones to the depths below.
- Leap of Faith: Utilize the “jump” action to leap onto the mushroom platform. Remarkably, all party members can make this jump without any hurdles.
- Descending the Mushroom Path: Continue your descent, hopping from mushroom to mushroom until you reach the tower’s base, the coveted Arcane Tower Basement.
- Breaking In: As you stand before the Arcane Tower Basement door, shatter through it to gain unrestricted access to the inner sanctum.
Empowering the Tower: A Solution Awaits
While the Arcane Tower Basement grants you access, a greater challenge lies ahead – the tower’s lack of power. Fear not, for a solution resides in the form of Sussur Blooms.
- Venture outside to locate the Sussur Blooms. Secure one of these precious items, and your mission is half complete.
- Return to the Arcane Tower Basement, carrying the Sussur Bloom. Combine the bloom with the elevator box to breathe new life into the tower. This action restores the tower’s power, enabling you to traverse its heights without fear of turrets targeting you.
With this guide, you can safely pass the arcane turrets and restore the Arcane Tower’s power in Baldur’s Gate 3. The mystical secrets within await!
