Baldur’s Gate 3, developed and published by Larian Studios, is a role-playing game that offers players the choice of 12 classes and 11 races. As the third instalment in the Baldur’s Gate series, it continues to follow the dungeon and dragons theme of its predecessors. Players must participate in many quests and in a few of them, players will have many choices. Some of the choices have permanent ramifications in the story and the characters players meet in the story. One of those choices is Help or Stop Astarion From Finishing the Ritual. This guide will provide you with information about which choice to make between Help or Stop Astarion From Finishing the Ritual in Baldur’s Gate 3.
Help or Stop Astarion From Finishing the Ritual
In order to make the choice between Help Astarion or stopping Astarion from finishing the Ritual, players need to follow the steps:
- Players will be given the choice when they defeat Cazador and rescue Astarion.
- After saving him from getting consumed by this would-be vampire lord, Astarion will give players 2 choices (not directly)
- Help Astarion Finish the Ritual
- Stop Astarion From Finishing the Ritual
- If players decided to Help Astarion with the ritual, this will be the worse decision as he will become the super vampire. Not only that, the ritual requires all the spawns to be sacrificed in the area as well. This is truly the worse ending for Astarion and the players.
- If players decided to stop Astarion from finishing the ritual, they would need to persuade him and make him realise that he is making a mistake.
- If players successfully persuade him, the ritual won’t happen and all the spawns will be saved alongside Astarion.
- Astarion will also join the party (not with his enhanced buffs) and will further help you in the game.
The choice is obvious to stop the ritual from finishing but if players are taking the evil route and want to kill many people while doing so, they can choose to assist Astarion in the ritual.
