Wyll in Baldur's Gate 3

In Baldur’s Gate 3, Origin characters let players experiment with every companion’s storyline, but fans think that there’s one that has been completely overlooked until now.

Baldur’s Gate 3 Wyll is set to be the classic fantasy hero, who tragically accepted a pact with a demon while trying to fight injustice. It’s fair to say that most players usually find him boring, but fans have discovered that playing as evil Origin Wyll really makes his story feel worthy of Game of Thrones.

“You get to really feel like a manipulative bastard who has everyone tricked into thinking you are a hero but actually is just out for themselves,” described a player in Reddit, where those who have tried evil Origin Wyll agreed that it gives the story a “fresh” perspective.

Evil Wyll fans also commented that this type of playthrough isn’t only about abandoning his father, Grand Duke Ravengard, but committing to a character that’s power-hungry and shows levels of deception far beyond a Dark Urge run.

Some Baldur’s Gate 3 fans explain that even after breaking his pact, Wyll can befriend the devil Mizora, who recognizes him as an “equal,” and make her stay in camp to “feel more natural.” Others thought that playing the “Blade of Frontiers” as a megalomaniac would mean that he gets to save his father, only to kill him with his own hands.

“As Wyll, you have to make sure Ulder dies. And that’s the sweet thing- you can, after agreeing to Gortash’s alliance and fulfilling the deal, make a beeline to the Iron Throne and, while there, ‘Kill the Duke’. If you do things right, Wyll gets a dream about becoming a duke and taking his father’s place,” described a player who claimed to love this type of storyline.

Even players who usually see Wyll as a “goody-goody” type of character agreed that this would echo how Larian Studios wrote him in Early Access. “He used to be more prideful, with the ‘hero’ being more of a façade, showing what he wanted to be seen as but what he still had to grow into. Or, depending on choices, master of pretending while being a bastard behind the scenes,” read a comment.

And that’s why Baldur’s Gate 3 players recommend playing as evil Origin Wyll at least once. If you want to know more about Larian Studios’ RPG, you can check where to find Zevlor, and where did BG3 players discovered a crate full of tadpoles.
