Baldur’s Gate 3 – How to Get To the Underdark


Act 1 of BG3 has a vast and dense surface, but beneath it lies a honeycomb of caves that is even more hostile, lush, and colorful. Many of the races in the game call The Underdark home, while others refer to it as a death trap. According to D&D legend, the dragon Thumberchaud’s lair is located in the Underdark, a subterranean maze of cave tunnels that is also home to the Duergar, Drow, and mushroom people known as Myconids. This guide will show you how to enter Baldur’s Gate 3’s underworld:

The Defiled Temple

Act 1 takes you to the Defiled Temple, a section of the Goblin Camp where you’ll encounter the Druid Halsin. You can access the Underdark by descending a set of ladders that you can find by following the meandering path through the Defiled Temple.

This is the entry to the Underdark that most people will probably utilize because it’s the first one that doesn’t require the Feather Fall spell.

The Whispering Depths

You’ll encounter the Blighted Village early on in Baldur’s Gate 3. Situated between the Goblin Camp and the Emerald Grove, this mostly-ruined town has been overrun by goblins.

You can go down a well in Blighted Village to reach the Whispering Depths, an underground cavern. There’s a big chamber in the Whispering Depths where you’ll battle some Phase Spiders and one especially grueling enemy. This chamber has a massive pit in the middle, into which individuals who cast the Feather Fall spell can jump to access the Underdark.

Riverside Teahouse

The Sunlit Wetlands are located south of the Blighted Village and lead to an enigmatic cottage in the swamp. Known as the Riverside Teahouse, the home conceals a number of mysteries, one of which is a subterranean hideaway accessible by cave tunnels.

There’s a cage at the bottom that seems like it belongs in the Whispering Depths dungeon; it hangs over a pit. You’ll tumble into the Underdark if you can make your way down the pit, perhaps with the help of a spell like Feather tumble.

Zhentarim Hideout

There is a building in Waukeen’s Rest with containers obstructing the entrance. You will find yourself in a concealed Zhentarim Hideout—the stronghold of a clandestine group operating throughout Faerun—if you manage to move the crates and enter the structure. Naturally, it’s a risky detour to stumble across this hideout.

But those who are able to negotiate their way out of danger or outwit the numerous guards will be able to locate a closet that you may lockpick to get even farther into the Hideout. Proceed a little further down and record any perception checks your group makes. There will be a perception test along one of the walls; those who pass the test will see a phony door. Enter the false door to reach an elevator that takes you all the way down to the Underdark.


What level should I be to go to Underdark BG3?

You can visit the Mycanoid Colony, Grymforge, Adamantine Forge, Arcane Tower, and numerous other places while you’re in the Underdark. However, I advise you to be at least level 3–4 before attempting to enter the Underdark, as the opponents there can be rather formidable to an unskilled player.
