Baldur’s Gate 3 How to Open Caravan Strongbox

In Baldur’s Gate 3, making the proper decision can make all the difference. Players have no idea what will happen if they select the incorrect conversation choice or do anything ethically dubious. These can lead to fame and money, but it’s not always rainbows and sunshine at the other end.

Baldur’s Gate 3 players may come upon a roadway filled with blood and die early in Act One. Two guys are battling for their lives somewhere nearby, attempting to safeguard a strange strongbox of dubious worth. Here’s what happens if the players opt to fire these guys.

What’s In The Caravan Strongbox in BG3

The two caravaneers in the cave are members of the Zhentarim, a criminal organization, and they are attempting to transfer the contents of the Caravan Strongbox to their customer.

If players open it, they will discover a mysterious Iron Flask as well as some loose riches. The opening of the strongbox suggests that the soldiers perished in some fashion and that the player failed the DC 20 Sleight of Hand check required to pick the lock.

Players can save all of this stuff for later bartering, or they can open the Iron Flask for a truly spectacular sight. Keep in mind, though, that activating the Caravan Strongbox will prevent players from obtaining prizes from the Zhentarim agents lurking along the coast.

If the caravaneers in the cave perish, players can instead take the Caravan Strongbox and carry it to Waukeen’s Rest’s wine cellar. The wayside inn won’t be in great shape when the group arrives, but they’ll be able to make their way to the cellar anyhow. Speak with the lookout and persuade him to allow the group through so that they may access the Zhentarim Hideout.

Inside, players can hand up the Caravan Strongbox to the group’s commander, Zarys, in exchange for the magical heavy crossbow known as Harold. This ranged weapon may inflict Bane on a successful attack roll (provided the victim fails their saving throw), making it an excellent support weapon.

Bringing an open strongbox to Zarys instantly turns all of the criminals in the cave hostile. Furthermore, opening the Iron Flask will result in a poor relationship with a certain character later in the game.

That’s how to open Caravan Strongbox in Baldur’s Gate 3 as I’ll see you in the next guide.
