Baldur's Gate 3 Save Halsin Hidden Vault Finish Act 1

Baldur’s Gate 3 guide (BG3): Saving Halsin – Where to find Halsin, The Hidden Vault, and finishing Act I

Let's rescue Halsin the Druid.

After eliminating the leaders of the Goblin Camp in Baldur’s Gate 3, you can save Halsin and the Druid Grove then find a Hidden Vault. Doing all of this gets you very close to finishing Act I. Here’s how to complete the Saving Halsin quest in Baldur’s Gate 3.

Note: If you’re still working your way through eliminating all the Goblin leaders, check out our guide. I honestly recommend rescuing Halsin first because he joins you as a temporary fifth party member which helps a lot when trying to clear out all three leaders and their lackeys.

Baldur’s Gate 3: How to rescue Halsin and save the Druid Grove

To save Halsin in BG3, I recommend you read our detailed guide on where to find Halsin. He’s honestly really difficult to find, but he’s trapped in the Shattered Sanctum in an area past where you find Minthara. Climb the ladder east of Minthara and go through the door on the other side. This area is the Worg Pens and here, you’ll need to kill all the goblins to free Halsin.

Before you can return to the Druid Grove and save the day, if you haven’t killed the three Goblin leaders, you’ll need to with Halsin. Halsin won’t leave Shattered Sanctum until all three Goblin leaders are dead, which actually works for you because you can get three parasites to start unlocking the best Illithid Powers.

How to unlock the Hidden Vault in the Druid Grove in Baldur’s Gate 3

After returning to the Druid Grove with Halsin, you can go speak with Rath inside the small room next to the grove through the stone door. If you’re lost, open your map and look for a quest waypoint in the Druid Grove pointing you to where you can find Rath. After talking with Rath, he’ll give you a wolf rune to access the Hidden Vault.

Continue through this area, past where Nettie is working. You’ll see a giant wolf statue in the middle and four pedestals surrounding it. Walk up to the pedestal without a rune and place the wolf rune into it by dragging the wolf rune from your inventory into the open slot.

Next, click on all four pedestals to light them all up; they’ll glow blue. Once all runes are activated, a stairwell will be revealed. It leads to the Hidden Vault where you can loot Sorrow a rare two-handed weapon that has Ensnaring Strike, and the Robe of Summer, a rare piece of clothing that has cold resistance.

What to do with Kagha, Zevlor, and the tiefling refugees in BG3

Earlier in your Baldur’s Gate 3 campaign, you were given a choice between siding with Kagha’s druids or Zevlor’s tiefling refugees. You can kill any of the two leaders earlier in the game, or you can leave it be until Halsin comes back. If you’ve avoided any confrontation, Halsin will set things right.

You’ll see him demoting Kagha, while Zevlor and the tieflings decide to continue their journey peacefully. But, first, they’ll celebrate in your camp.

How to romance Halsin in BG3

Click on the “camp” button. A cutscene will play showing Zevlor and the refugees partying. If you rescued Volo earlier, as well as Scratch the dog and the owlbear cub, you’ll find them here too.

Note: As for romance, you have the option to flirt with a companion in Baldur’s Gate 3 when they ask you to have a drink with them during the party. Check out every way to romance your companions in BG3.

After a bit of rest (and/or romancing), Halsin will say that you need to reach the Moonrise Towers either by passing through The Risen Road or the Underdark.

I chose the Underdark and, once I reached the bottom area, I interacted with the raft. After doing that, you reach Grymdark which is where you can choose to use the Adamantine Forge and fight Grym or exit the Underdark and end Act 1.
