Baldur’s Gate 3 – Should you side with Nere or take his lead?

While in the Underdark in Baldur’s Gate 3, you’ll likely hear about a True Soul named Nere from various sources. Nere isn’t the nicest of guys, to say the least, and he’s wanted by the Myconid colony for crimes against their people as well as some Duergar for unpaid debts. Regardless of how you heard of Nere, your map will point you in the direction of the Grymforge in the Underdark, where Nere was trapped via a cave-in.

The gnome slaves work to get the True Soul out quickly, as there’s poisonous gas in the room he’s trapped in and he doesn’t have much time left. If you manage to clear the collapse without harming any of the gnomes, Nere will emerge and tempt you, offering to partner with him. However, you might also have an obligation to the Myconid colony or others at Grymforge to take its lead. This guide will show both sides of the decision as well as how to free Nere in the first place.
