How to Save Gandrel in Baldur’s Gate 3

Hey there, fellow adventurers! Let’s talk about Gandrel, the poor soul caught up in the chaotic dance of life and death in Baldur’s Gate 3. Your choices can literally decide whether he keeps breathing or joins the ever-growing list of game casualties. So, grab your virtual swords, and let’s ensure Gandrel survives the wilds of Faerun!

How to Save Gandrel in Baldur’s Gate 3

In Act 1, as you’re gallivanting through the Faerun wilderness, you might stumble upon Gandrel south of the Riverside Teahouse. Here’s the kicker: if you don’t play your cards right, Astarion might turn Gandrel into monster chow. But fear not, my friends, because I’ve got a few tricks up my sleeve to keep our monster hunter friend alive and kicking.

Don’t have Astarion in your party

The main culprit here is Astarion, the rogue with a penchant for ruining Gandrel’s day. Simple solution? Don’t invite Astarion to your party. Without him around, Gandrel keeps his secrets to himself, avoiding the danger that comes with a loose tongue. Just be ready for a persuasion check to pry the juicy details about his vampire spawn hunt.

Hand over Astarion

Okay, so you’ve got Astarion in your crew, and you know he’s not exactly on Gandrel’s Christmas card list. What’s the move? Hand Astarion over to Gandrel like a terrible gift. Gandrel grabs Astarion and makes a run for it, bidding farewell to your party permanently. Astarion might not have a happy ending, but hey, Gandrel lives to see another day.

Leave the conversation

In the middle of a chat with Gandrel and Astarion’s lurking around? Quick, end that conversation pronto! If you don’t, Astarion takes matters into his own hands, and Gandrel meets an untimely demise. Once the talking’s done, walk away from Gandrel, leaving him in peace. If you’ve successfully dodged the Astarion-shaped bullet, you might even bump into Gandrel again at a Gur camp later in the game.

And there you have it, folks! Gandrel’s survival manual for Baldur’s Gate 3.
