The Baldur’s Gate 3 community confessed what tiny acts of revenge they loved committing even if they’re not included during the main campaign. Here’s what Baldur’s Gate 3 fans have been talking about.

Baldur’s Gate 3 players proved that Faerun is a great cathartic place to take out petty frustrations on snarky companions or annoying NPCs. Fans agreed that Larian Studios added plenty of scenarios and dialogues where they can release some pent-up anger, even in the form of “tiny gestures of revenge.”

In a Reddit post called “What is the pettiest thing you’ve done?,” Baldur’s Gate 3 players let it all out and revealed some interesting ways to get some kind of revenge on characters that put the main character’s patience to the test.

“Maybe you lied to a character, or overkilled a particularly annoying enemy,” describes Redditor ‘RKO-Cutter.’ Keep in mind that players describe some interactions available after Act 2, so be aware of spoilers ahead.

A popular petty action was choosing to draw a mustache on Vlaakith, the Githyanki queen and deity, with Lae’zel watching. “On the other hand, the githyanki on cleaning duty frantically trying to scrub our vandalism off is pretty hilarious,” said ‘blue-bird-2022,’ “I almost feel bad for laughing at it.”

Some players claimed to be irritated by Astarion trying to feed on them, and they “accidentally” let the monastery from the “Blood of Lathander” sidequest collapse while he’s still there. Fans explained that this also triggers a special interaction with the vampire after reviving him with Withers, where he yells: “What in the sweet hells were you thinking, activating that lance? I was right there!”

Others agreed that Shadowheart was the companion getting on their nerves, especially during Act 2, where she constantly talks about Shar. “I put Selûne’s statue in Shadowheart’s bag,” confessed ‘shinneui,’ as many other players said that they loved collecting every Selunite item they found, being Selune the rival goddess of Shar, and giving it to the cleric.

There are others that focus on stealing or killing whole sets of NPCs just out of revenge, even if there’s no specific side quest asking for it in Baldur’s Gate 3. “I am currently in the middle of picking up everything not nailed down in Cazador’s mansion. It’s petty. It’s not even close to appropriate revenge for what he did to Astarion. But it makes ME feel better. Your wine glasses are mine now, Cazador,” said ‘Noirsongbird.’

And that’s everything on what are the pettiest things Baldur’s Gate 3 players have done while traveling through Faerun. If you want to know more about the game, you can check which is the worst companion according to fans and who they think is the greatest evil you’ll face in Baldur’s Gate 3.
