Facing the Guardian Undead

Once the secret door swings open, get ready for a battle with two Guardian undead lurking in the open cave. Here’s how to tackle them:

  • Attack from a distance: Launch a preemptive strike to catch them off guard.
  • Divine intervention: If you’re blessed with Cleric powers, use them to knock the undead down once they rise again.

Venture further into the cellar and you’ll discover a little wooden platform to the east, along with a magnificent ornate mirror beckoning you.

Ornate Mirror

Outsmarting the Ornate Mirror

Prepare for some witty banter with the enchanted Ornate mirror. To gain passage, respond in the following order:

  1. Keep your cool: Choose any non-aggressive response.
  2. Proclaim your allegiance: Declare, “Yes, an ally! I’m an ally of your master’s.”
  3. Insult time: Call out the nefarious Szass Tam, stating “Szass Tam is a foul, wretched creature.”
  4. Show off your knowledge: Share your medical expertise with, “I read a doctor’s journal – he used balsam ointment to clean a wound.”
  5. Avoid sentimentality: Any response except “I’d see the ones I love.”

Success leads you into the laboratory of Ilyn Toth, but beware, triggering the wrong answers summons a construct ready to pummel you. Once inside, beware of the trapped cage containing the Baldur’s Gate 3 Necromancy of Thay, with a pressure plate waiting to spring a nasty surprise!
