You might’ve stumbled upon the Oubliette while exploring Moonrise Towers in Act 2. However, you would have noticed that there’s a section you’re unable to reach at that point. In this guide we’ll go over how to get to the other side of the Oubliette in Baldur’s Gate 3.

How to Get to the Other Side of the Oubliette in Baldur’s Gate 3

The Oubliette is located beneath Moonrise Towers. You can use spells like Dimension Door and Misty Step to reach one side, but not the other.

Finding the Oubliette

After defending Last Light Inn from an attack by the followers of the Absolute, you’ll be asked to infiltrate Moonrise Towers to find a way to kill Ketheric Thorm. After you meet him you’ll get the chance to wander the area, which means you might slip into the strange location under the towers called the Oubliette.

Unlocking the Other Side of the Oubliette

If you want to explore the other section, you’ll have to wait a bit. It isn’t available until you reach the end of the Moonrise Towers questline and face Ketheric Thorm. Once his health is low, a Nautiloid-esque tentacle breaks one of the towers and pulls him away. I included an image of the new location entrance through the tower, but it might look different in your game because the tower that breaks is randomized.

Enter the broken tower, and you’ll find yourself in a Mindflayer colony, which is great if you’re looking for Zevlor, who’s been abducted and taken to the pods here. This colony happens to be what’s located in the portion of the Oubliette that you weren’t able to access earlier.

That’s how you get to the other side of the Oubliette in Baldur’s Gate 3. Before you commit to entering, make sure you’re prepared for some tough fights. Otherwise, head over to our BG3 guide hub for more topics like how to use Divine Intervention or should you kill or spare Viconia.
