Baldur’s Gate 3 Act 2 has some of the most difficult fights in the entire game, and players have shared their tricks to quickly finish off this deadly but underrated boss.

Exploring the Crèche Y’llek in Baldur’s Gate 3 isn’t an easy task in Honour Mode, since even the most underrated enemies can easily swipe an entire party. This is especially true when we talk about the fight against Ch’r’ai W’wargaz, the Inquisitor of Vlaakith who you face after defying the Githyanki goddess.

In an Honour playthrough, the Inquisitor receives the passive Legendary Action called “Mind-Claw of Tu’narath,” which combined with his base skills and other allies in the map, makes him an impossible boss if you don’t finish him during the first few turns.

While players’ go-to strategy is to quickly flee from his fight using the backdoor found in the Sanctuary of Lathander, fans shared on Reddit some proven methods that can help you if you manage to implement them quickly.

The best way to defeat Ch’r’ai W’wargaz is to have Initiative over him, so you’re able to stun or blind him for a couple of turns. You can achieve this by prioritizing Initiative as you’re building your party or drinking Elixir of Vigilance to buff it. Others prefer attacking him before he even turns Hostile, so you’d be able to cast any skill on him without worrying too much.

If you want to skip the fight, make sure to have cleared the way to Lathander’s Sanctuary.

After doing so, you’ll need to deal as much damage as you can in a few turns. Some Redditors suggest throwing water onto him, casting Haste, and using Call Lightning or any other electric spell multiple times to strike him down. If everything fails, there’s always the chance of throwing as many explosives as you have in your inventory to finally knock him down.

Ultimately, what does the trick is to focus on eliminating as fast as possible, even if there are other allies in the arena. “I didn’t take on this fight until Level 9 after taking on most of Act 2. The extra power and, as others commented, a total focus on putting the Inquisitor down ASAP made the fight manageable,” read a comment in Baldur’s Gate 3 Subreddit.

If you’re not in the mood to face W’wargaz in Act 2, you can easily skip that fight if you choose the Underdark path. However, the Inquisitor will come from you either way, as he’ll appear again when you’re exploring The Emperor’s hideout in Act 3.
