Sazza in Baldur's Gate 3

Baldur’s Gate 3 has broken records, and players love this RPG game inspired by the D&D universe. But some players’ choices can be quite radical. Here’s what the community says about this player who showed mercy to one of the evilest characters in the game.

Baldur’s Gate 3 has taken millions of players on a journey through the Sword Coast in a Quest to save themselves from a brain-eating parasite or die trying. During this adventure, most of the players have met several memorable characters and allies.

The game is also filled to the brim with monsters and quite an assortment of villains to vanquish or ally yourself with. Depending on the player’s choices, you could be either on the side of the heroes or throw everything into chaos by siding with the evildoers.

Neutrality is also an option, but most players either choose to be good or bad. Like this Reddit user who proudly showcased how they rescued one of the most heinous characters in Baldur’s Gate 3, not once but three times during the adventure.

Reddit user ‘blue_sunwalk’ shared this post with an accomplishment of Baldur’s Gate 3 that can be unlocked by freeing the goblin Sazza each time she is imprisoned. They addressed the community and declared: “98.6% of you are monsters.” And this immediately sparked a heated discussion about saving Sazza, the imprisoned Goblin.

A small percentage of the players agreed with the OP, as one of them said: “Proud to say I have that badge too!” Another player expressed: “If Larian had made her a companion to start off team evil and lead you believably to Minthara, she’d be alive today and folks wouldn’t be looking for hokey workarounds. Blame Sven.”

However, the vast majority of players agree on not showing mercy to the goblin lady, as one of them expressed: “Why are we monsters for not saving a goblin who is laughing at someone whose brother was killed by them.” And then added: “She should rot in jail forever.”

Another added: “Also she tries fairly hard to get you in trouble with/imprisoned/killed by Minthara the first time you free/save her.” And recurring to sarcasm they also pointed out: “And is threatening to kill their children and pets. Lovely woman, did nothing wrong.”

While it is true that only a small percentage of the player base (1.4%) has this achievement, it is also worth mentioning that Baldur’s Gate 3 follows some of the classic TTRPG mechanics, thus, making the right choices can be locked behind a roll of the dice.
