For those wondering whom you will take out as your first victim of the Dark Urge in Baldur’s Gate 3, it is almost always Alfira, the Tiefling Bard. You will find her in Act 1 after you get to Emerald Grove.
While interacting with her about music and acquiring a lute, the scene soon turns dark if you are the Dark Urge as the day progresses. Alfira’s death will not be good news for players looking for a great piece of armor later on in the game, so the following guide will help players avoid that fate.
Baldur’s Gate 3: How To Protect Alfira In Dark Urge
Players will interact with Kagha as you make your camp when Alfrira comes and wishes to stay the night. It does not matter if you say yes or no, as you will end up jolted from your sleep at night with bloodied hands and her dead body by your side. To prevent this, players can only do one thing in Baldur’s Gate 3: not having Alfira visit them.
The way to do this is by searching for Alfira when you reach Emerald Grove. You will locate her beside the edge of a cliff, along the same place where you can obtain the lute to become a bard if you wish to. Players must initiate non-lethal combat with her to render her unconscious.
Switch on non-lethal combat via your Passives menu to not kill her outright. Do not use spells or ranged attacks, with free-hand fighting and standard melee weapons being the best choices. After Alfira is knocked out, she will not come to your camp when you initiate the long rest.
Nevertheless, there is always a price to pay and to save Alfira, the life of a Dragonborn called Quil must be taken. She will replace Alfira at the camp where the gruesome fate will befall her at your hands. The only solace is that Quil does not show up later in Baldur’s Gate 3, so you will not miss any storyline events or items.
However, it is recommended that players save their progress before starting the fight with Alfira. This is because making her unconscious on the night of her visit is crucial.
If Quil does not come to your camp even after doing the task above, you can start over the game and get the same processes done to get Quil to arrive.
Baldur’s Gate 3: What Happens After Saving Alfira’s Life
Once you have rescued Alfira from your own Dark Urge, players will meet her again in Act 2 at the Last Light Inn. You will find out that a group of Tieflings are stuck in Moonrise Towers, and you will be given the quest of “Rescue the Tieflings.”
Players who successfully achieve the goal and, more specifically, safely bring out Lakrissa, a close friend of Alfira, will be rewarded with the Potent Robe. It is an excellent armor for Bards since it enhances cantrip damage and gives you momentary hit points tied to your Charisma.
Thus, that is all the information players will need when it comes to saving Alfira’s life from your Dark Urge and what is the benefit of it all. In case you do not want to go down the more humane path, there is no stopping you from ending her life early on either.
