You might be asking yourself how you can get worshiped by the Kuo-Toa in Baldur’s Gate 3. This race of fish-like humanoids (i.e. think murlocs in World of Warcraft), reside deep in the caverns of the Underdark. In fact, the entrance to the Kuo-Toa lair is so well-hidden, that you might not even notice it during your playthrough. Here’s what to do to find them and how to get them to worship you.

How to Get Worshiped by the Kuo-Toa in Baldur’s Gate 3

The Baldur’s Gate 3 Kuo-Toa can be found in an area called the Festering Cove, which is part of the Underdark region. Getting there, however, requires a bit of exploration.

Where to Find the Festering Cove

To reach the Kuo-Toa lair, you have to go to the southern portion of the Underdark (X:65; Y: -241). You’ll spot several explosive mushrooms, as well as a chasm in a corner. There happens to be a landscape feature here, a cragged rock, that you can interact with. Once you do so, your characters will climb down to the Festering Cove.

How to Interact with the Kuo-Toa and Their “God”

You’ll find the Kuo-Toa in the middle of the chamber, and it seems that they’re praying at an altar. There are some key dialogue responses here:

  • “Show them what a god of death looks like! Attack!” — I personally suggest avoiding this, as it only causes all the Kuo-Toa to turn hostile.
  • Investigation or Arcana — Both options will reveal the true nature of the “god” that they’re worshiping. It’s actually a redcap, a fey creature that looks like a goblin.
  • Performance or Persuasion — Both options appear if you discover that it’s just a redcap in disguise. I chose Persuasion here, but Performance is also fine. This will cause the redcap to turn hostile, but the Kuo-Toa will just look on.

Kuo-Toa Rewards

Since I only had to fight one redcap enemy, the battle was a breeze. After this, one of the Kuo-Toa leaders approached me, and I simply told the tribe to pay homage to my character instead. This yielded an Acolyte inspiration point for “Tipping the Scales” (i.e. earn the worship of the Kuo-Toa). Moreover, I received the Sickle of BOOOAL, a rare weapon that has the BOOOAL’s Blessing effect.

That’s how to get worshiped by the Kuo-Toa in Baldur’s Gate 3. Although you won’t see these creatures later in the game, it’s still a good idea to finish this segment during the first act. For more tips and tactics, visit our BG3 guides hub.
