You might want to tackle the Investigate Last Light Inn quest in Baldur’s Gate 3. This takes place during the game’s second act, and it’s part of a quest chain where you learn more about the Selunite Resistance. However, you’ll soon find deadly creatures that won’t be too happy when you stumble upon their nest. Here’s how to do it.

How to Complete the Investigate Last Light Inn Quest in Baldur’s Gate 3

The Investigate Last Light Inn quest is done in the underground cavern beneath the base of the Harpers. Here’s a quick summary:

  • You can enter the caverns by way of the ruined house or the prison.
  • You then need to kill a dozen Meenlock creatures.
  • After grabbing a key and reading a book, you’ll learn of your next task.

How to Reach the Cave Beneath Last Light Inn

To get to the underground cave, you can check out the ruined house just east of Last Light Inn (X: 34; Y: 157). There are roots that emerge from a hatch, and you can use those to climb down.

Alternatively, the backyard of Last Light Inn has entrances to the prison. Pick up the key that’s on a table an unlock the cell. You can then move the crates and destroy the wall using melee attacks.

How to Defeat the Meenlocks

The next step in Investigate Last Light Inn is to take out the Meenlocks. These creatures are quite deadly since they have the Fear Aura, which can frighten your party. Moreover, they can teleport to any spot on the map, even areas behind you (i.e. if you’re barring a doorway). As such, it’s imperative to approach this battle tactically.

I would suggest bringing Gale, preferably with him as an Evocation Wizard. That’s because the subclass allows you to cast Evocation-type AoE spells without damaging allies within their radius. As such, that means Fireballs and Ice Storms won’t cause any accidental deaths. Bring a different spellcaster class without this feature might cause hassles, given that Meenlocks will surround your team, and your AoE spells would just hit your own party members.

Likewise, I opted for a more “gamey” approach. I had my party stealthily climb on the rock formations just before the large chamber. Then, once the Meenlocks attacked, I was able to use Thunderwave and Shove to push them away several times. This also caused fall damage, helping deplete their HP and whittle down their numbers. After you’ve defeated the creatures, head to the chamber/altar. You can pick up a key, as well as read a book. It should tell you about the next objective, which is in the Masons’ Guild.

In any case, that’s how to complete the Investigate Last Light Inn task in Baldur’s Gate 3. You’ve cleared the area of hostiles, so it’s time for more adventures. For more tips and tactics, visit our BG3 guides hub.
