Tongue of Madness and Tinmask Spores are the two ingredients needed in Baldur’s Gate 3 to have Omeluum negate the parasite’s power. While the parasite can offer awesome Illithid Power, it could also turn you into a mind flayer at any moment. Here’s how to complete the “Help Omeluum Investigate the Parasite” sidequest in Baldur’s Gate 3 by finding Tongue of Madness and Tinmask Spores.

BG3: Tongue of Madness and Tinmask Spores location

In the never-ending chase of ridding yourself of your parasite in Baldur’s Gate 3, you need to get Tongue of Madness and Tinmask Spores. In your chat with Omeluum, he mentions that the Arcane Tower should have the two mushrooms. We have an entire guide on the Arcane Tower, including how to get past the Arcane Turrets and turn on the Elevator. You’ll need to know how to do all of that to find Tongue of Madness and Tinmask Spores.

After you’ve gotten past the Arcane Turrets and turned the power on, go to the second floor to find Tongue of Madness and Tinmask Spores. There are a few locations in the Arcane Tower where you can find the mushrooms you need, but I found them easily by looking around the second floor.

Tongue of Madness is found on the southeast side of the room in a little garden patch and Tinmask Spores are found in the northwest corner on a shelf. You only need one of each mushroom, but I grabbed a few just in case.

Aftering taking Tongue of Madness and Tinmask Spores back to Omeluum and drinking his potion, it’ll inevitably fail whether you make successful Saving Throws or not. However, Omeluum offers you a priceless ring for your troubles.

I simply offered gold for it, but I opened the barter menu and clicked the button to change it to trade. I then dragged the ring into my inventory without having to give Omeluum anything and he was completely okay with it. You get the Ring of Mind-Shielding which gives you an advantage on Saving Throws against being charmed, which is pretty powerful.
