Where to Find Karlach

The recruitment process for Karlach begins early in Act 1 of Baldur’s Gate 3. After thwarting the scouting party assaulting the Druid Grove, venture westward. Instead of entering the Blighted Village, head north across the stone bridge. On reaching a clearing, you’ll encounter a delightful dog that you can pet and send to your camp.

Continue north, and you’ll come across a river with several rocks to jump on. Cross the river and head east, following the pathway’s end, where you’ll find Karlach burning with the flames of hell. She eagerly waits for you at coordinates X: -104; Y: 520.

Remember to have an available slot in your party for Karlach to join. If you don’t, she’ll rush to the location of a battle and become an AI-controlled NPC for the fight.

Karlach is waiting for you next to a river.

How to Beat Anders

Karlach’s quest, “Hunt the Devil,” requires you to eliminate Anders and his so-called “fake” Paladins, who are actually followers of the devil Zariel. You’ll find them in a building on the Risen Road. But before you confront Anders, it’s crucial to strategize.

Here’s what you need to do: – While still outside, climb to the top of the building and into the balcony area. Keep Karlach from moving down too early. – Position one melee character close to Anders. – Station another melee character next to the Halfling Ranger. – Place your spellcaster further away in one corner of the room.

Once you’ve prepared your party, allow Karlach to descend the ladder. As soon as Anders spots her, the dialogue triggers, and the battle commences. With your squad in optimal positions, taking down Anders and his cohorts should be a piece of cake. Defeat them, and you’ll obtain the Sword of Justice, Anders’ weapon. There’s also a Soul Coin on a shelf in the adjacent room.

Position your squad properly before starting the battle against Anders.

Karlach’s Fiery Feature

Now that you’ve officially recruited Karlach, let’s explore her fiery capabilities in Baldur’s Gate 3. As a Barbarian, she generates Rage for devastating DPS and unleashes powerful strikes that deal massive damage.

After the battle, Karlach can’t seem to contain the fires of hell within her and starts running all over the place. To calm her down, you must find Infernal Iron and seek out a knowledgeable Tiefling with engineering skills. More details can be found in our Karlach romance guide.

Karlach runs around while burning, and you need to find something that can control her Infernal Engine.

Furthermore, Karlach and Wyll have a history that almost leads to blows. Prevent their fight to gain approval from your other companions. Lastly, ensure you save the Tiefling refugees in the Druid Grove. Trusting Minthara for a romance story is a bad idea, as it will cause both Karlach and Wyll to ditch you.

And there you have it! That’s all you need to know about recruiting Karlach in Baldur’s Gate 3. If you’re interested in learning about other unique characters, be sure to check out our companion recruitment guide.
