In Baldur’s Gate 3, one of the main objectives in Chapter One is to remove the parasite from your head. This quest leads you to a druid named Halsin, but locating him isn’t straightforward as he’s transformed into a bear using his magic. The final clue you receive is that he’s been captured and placed within the goblin camp. Here’s a guide to help you find Halsin:
Where to Find Halsin in Baldur’s Gate 3
Access the Goblin Camp: There are multiple ways to enter the goblin camp and reach the Shattered Sanctum where Halsin is held. While the sanctum layout can be confusing, you can easily find Halsin by heading to the small area far east of the location (X:342, Y:33 on your minimap).
Locate the Right Door: You’ll know you’ve found the right door when you see several goblins near a crypt in front of a door adorned with a pair of eyes surrounded by stars.
Discover Halsin in the Worg Pens: Beyond the door, you’ll enter the worg pens. Descend the stairs to the right, and you’ll spot goblins harassing a bear. This bear is Halsin in his transformed state.
Choose Your Approach: There are various ways to handle this encounter, but one of the most straightforward is to stop the goblins. Doing so will prompt Halsin to attack his cage, breaking it and initiating combat. Halsin will then fight alongside you.
Tactical Tip: If you opt for combat, consider splitting your party into two groups before fighting. This is wise for two reasons: First, one of the goblins in front of the cage may try to escape and call reinforcements. Second, several goblins are on the far west side of the room, and positioning half your party near them before combat can help deal with them.
Save Halsin: Ensure Halsin survives the battle to complete this part of the quest.
Complete the Quest: To finish Halsin’s quest, you’ll need to confront the three enemy leaders within the sanctum: Dror Gagzlin, Minthara, and Priestess Gut. After defeating them, speak to Halsin again at the worg pens. He’ll return to the Druid’s Grove. Meet him there to conclude his storyline.
By following these steps, you’ll successfully locate and rescue Halsin in the goblin camp, advancing your quest in Baldur’s Gate 3.
