The Baldur’s Gate 3 community discussed some of the game’s most unsettlingly evil decisions—choices that might leave you broken for weeks.

Baldur’s Gate 3 plays out like a classic CRPG in that there are tons of choices you get to make. Some of these impact the game’s storyline and main characters, while others affect some of the in-game NPCs. Just like any other RPG, Larian’s take on the D&D universe has some questionably evil decisions you can make.

However, most players find it far too cruel to inflict a terrible fate on fictional characters they grow attached to. Many Baldur’s Gate 3 players took to Reddit to discuss which is by far the “most evil choice” in the game. ‘KyojiroKagenuma94’ believed that giving up Dame Aylin to Lorroakan in Act 3 is “far more evil than just killing her to fulfill Shadowheart’s destiny.”

“You liberate her, reunite her with Isobel, only to rip it all away and put her in a cage again,” they explained. Moreover, Isobel is killed by Lorroakan when she attempts to help Aylin, leaving the immortal Aasimar with no choice but to stare at the body of her now-lost lover, possibly for an eternity. All you get for this betrayal is some gold, which isn’t that hard to get in Baldur’s Gate 3.

One user mentioned that the Dark Urge Origin has a far more evil alternative. You can resist the Dark Urge, “gain Jaheira’s trust, talk with her about her prior Bhaalspawn companion, help her rescue Minsc, then sacrifice her to Bhaal for Sarevok.” If you then cast Speak with Dead on Minsc after this, “all he does is scream for Boo.”

Another player mentioned how they let Karlach transform into a Mind Flayer only to betray her when she’s about to kill the Netherbrain. “She sees the knife and that wail of ‘This is all I had’ before getting violently shanked.” On another thread, ‘Stormy5x5’ discussed how Tieflings begging for their lives during the Druid Grove massacre made them break down.

While Baldur’s Gate 3’s different choices can sometimes be emotionally draining, the community doesn’t shy away from experimenting with them.

Another Baldur’s Gate 3 player previously explained how to get the worst outcome for each companion in a single playthrough. In a similar manner, the fan community also shared the funniest ways to die in the game.
