Baldur's Gate 3 ending

The most complicated situation arrives once you complete the boss fight against the final boss Neitherbrain. To get a good ending, you have to command Neitherbrain to demolish all tadpoles. Finally, the boss will kill itself and fall into the ocean. This is the best ending of Baldur’s Gate 3 so far. Players who don’t want a bad conclusion, can command Netherbrain to slay itself.

There are plenty of good and endings. But everyone gets some stories as a common one. Here are all major Baldur’s Gate III endings and what you can do,

Bad Ending with Dark Urge 

You have to betray the emperor and once he is killed, you will conquer the world. NPCs from all races and classes will join forces with you. There is another ending, but this time you have to take the wrong route. A situation where you have to kill the Emperor after joining forces with the Dark Urge companions.  

You have to claim the Absolute in disguise of Bhaal and also slay the emperor. Once you choose this ending, you as a child of Bhaal have to claim the brain rather than killing itself. You also have to follow the instructions of your father and escape Bhaal’s horrors. There will be small tasks where you have to fight against minions of Lord Bhaal. 

Slay the Orin minions and become the chosen descendant of Lord Bhaal. This is an evil ending and you have to demolish the world after conquering your powers from the Lord himself.

Good and Ending with Wyll Companion

Another tricky situation arrives between Wyll and his Father. Here, you have to make a smart decision to get a better ending. You will be asked to choose between Wyll or his dad. If you save one, the other one will be killed. You can proceed to save Wyll’s father as this will rejoice him and he will also get an offer from Mizora. If you reject the deal, Wyll will be saved and his father will be murdered. 

There’s no clue about Wyll’s destiny if you choose to free his father. Also, you can save both Wyll and his father. But to get this ending, you have to choose the right stories and complete more challenges. To get the best ending for this part, you have to save Wyll’s dad. There’s also a small chance that Wyll, the companion, will also be saved.

Good Ending with Gale

You can complete Baldur’s Gate 3 in Act 2 and get a positive ending. But how’s this possible? You have to befriend Gale and complete his questlines. But once you progress, there comes another two tasks. You have to slay the brain or destroy the absolute. If you are not interested in doing both, then watch Gale killing himself. Though this might be a sad ending, you will liberate all dark forces from the world.

You can become a Mindflayer in another ending. Here, the emperor tasks you to slay the Netherstones. You can politely reject the offer. Again, you have to free Orpheus, the Prince of the Githyanki. Once you save Orpheus, there will be two choices. You can either become a true hero or else you can proceed to choose to save yourself and then you have to defeat the Illithids.

Prince Orpheus will be the new Illithids and you have to defeat new enemies and save the world. Finally, you have to destroy the brain and this will get you the achievement of Ceremorphosis. 

This ending is good, but you will be a Mindflayer forever and you can’t rule the world as well. In some scenarios, Orpheus might become the chosen Mindflayer and this can turn out to be a worst case as well. Everything will be based on choices you make.

Good Ending With Karlach

Another ending where you have to free Orpheus again, but this time Karlach becomes the Mindflayer. If you decide against this, then Karlach will die and Orpheus will become a Mindflayer.

Good Ending With Gale and Mystra

Gale and Mystra will come together for another conclusion. You will receive the Crown of Karsus after beating the final boss, Netherbrain. Now you should meet up with Gale after completing Wizard of Waterdeep and meeting the Elimster Vault. You also have to read the Sorcerous Sundries vault tomes to find out some instructions. Gale will inform that he’s ready to slay the brain using the Netherese Orb. 

But, you have to reject this and  Gale will be ready to sacrifice himself. Also, he will ask about the Crown of Karsus and you can recommend giving it to Karsus. This will be another good ending in Baldur’s Gate 3, but it also comes at the sacrifice of Gale. You can skip the final battle if you wish to proceed with this ending.

These are all the main endings of Baldur’s Gate III. The choice is yours to choose from. If you wish to have a good ending, then slaying the Netherbrain will be the best option. If you want to become a dark force, then you can join hands with the Dark Urge.
