Once you make in into the Underdark and explore the Myconid Colony, you may eventually meet Omeluum. This NPC is a Mind Flayer, but not like any of the others you’ve met. He says he broke free from the chains of the Absolute, and is now living a normal life with the Myconids. But should you really trust Omeluum in Baldur’s Gate 3? Find out below.
Is Omeluum trustworthy in Baldur’s Gate 3?
Although he looks frightening in his appearance, as most Mind Flayers are your enemy, he’s quite the opposite. Overall, you should trust Omeluum in Baldur’s Gate 3, and I’ll explain why. You can tell he’s living peacefully within the colony, and he offers to help out with a cure for your parasite.
By this point, you’ve probably met many people who claim to have a cure, then don’t end up helping you. Omeluum asks that you retrieve two ingredients for this potion at the Arcane Tower, which are Tongue of Madness and Tinmask Spores. He never attempts to attack you, and you have no reason to distrust him besides him being a Mind Flayer.
Once you find those ingredients and return them to him, Omeluum creates the cure potion. Of course, it’s not as easy as it sounds, and once you take it, the parasite is too strong to get rid of. Although the cure doesn’t exactly work, in return, he offers you a Ring of Mind-Shielding.
You may as well take it, because it gives the wearer Advantage on Saving Throws against being Charmed. Omeluum also says this ring will suppress the wearer’s tadpole. In the end, no harm comes to you from trusting Omeluum, and you receive a cool ring in the end anyway! You may find him again in Act Three as well.
