Evil Character Baldur's Gate 3

In Baldur’s Gate 3, players can be the most tyrannical villains in the Sword Coast if they choose to do so. Here’s what a Baldur’s Gate 3 player did to beat Act 1 in the most evil way possible. Watch out for the spoilers ahead.

Baldur’s Gate 3 has beaten all the records and taken several awards as the best game of the year. And players couldn’t be happier with Larian Studio’s take on D&D gameplay. They have found thousands of ways to progress throughout the adventure, and some of them are even enjoying being the bad guys.

Being a villain in Baldur’s Gate 3 has its pros and cons. If you don’t have a single thread of empathy or are just tired of being the hero of the story, the game allows you to commit from petty and selfish actions to potentially world-breaking war crimes.

And for ‘Own-Feeling-6333,’ being evil is not just another passing fancy. As the player explained its way to do things, more and more players agreed that this was the evilest way to end the Druid Grove arc of the Baldur’s Gate 3:

According to the OP: “A lot of people say that it feels terrible to be evil in Act 1 and join the goblins in attacking the druid’s grove and slaughtering the tiefling refugees. And to be fair, it is quite brutal. But I think there is a way to resolve that conflict that is even more unsettling.”

Then, the player proceeded to explain that they stole the Sylvannus Idol to stir conflict between the refugees and the druids, making them kill each other while they watched from a safe distance, passing the party’s turns as they witnessed the grove’s inhabitants butcher each other. Then, when the time was right, he culled the weakened survivors.

But Own-Feeling-6333 is not the only player that enjoys pursuing an evil path, as another commented: “I FINALLY did a destroy the grove route last night. I was expecting for myself to feel bad for the tieflings or to feel like s**t. But when it happened, I felt nothing. I was just expecting to feel like a piece of s**t but it never happened. Safe to say, I can easily do another evil run afterward.”

Baldur’s Gate 3 definitely feels like the RPG with the most freedom to play in the market, and even if you decide to massacre every NPC you encounter, you could either have an untimely evil ending or turn into the next ruler of the Sword Coast.

And in case you want to know, here are the consequences of turning into an illithid. And if you are feeling particularly evil, here’s all you need to know about the Dark Urge Origin Character.
