Baldur’s Gate 3: How to Get to Other Side of Oubliette

What's on the other side of the meat wall?

Explore a little too much, and there’s a good chance that you’ll find yourself in the horrifyingly pink and wet Oubliette. This vile pit is where the Moonrise Tower sends its prisoners when they’ve reached the end of their usefulness. And if you’re not careful, you might join them. Here’s how to escape the Oubliette in Baldur’s Gate 3.

How to Get Out of the Oubliette in Moonrise Towers in Baldur’s Gate 3

So, be honest. How’d you get into the Oubliette? Did you get yanked through a crack in the wall by an Eldritch monstrosity? Did you jump down an enticingly pink hole in the Moonrise Prisons? However you managed to do it, you’re now in the corpse-softened hole that is the Oubliette.

But how do you get to the other side?


Well, spoilers ahead

The other side of the Oubliette is the Mind Flayer Colony. Your Dream Visitor will say as much when you fall into the pit. But, as of right now, you won’t be able to access the rest of the Colony.

To access it, you must confront Ketheric Throm at the top of Moonrise Tower. As you fight, part of the tower will split open, revealing more of the monstrous tentacles that you might have encountered in the kitchen and rafters.

You can then chase Ketheric Thorm down into the tower, where you’ll find yourself in the Mind Flayer Colony proper. If you look closely, you can even find the wall that separates the Mind Flayer Colony and the Oubliette. The Oubliette is adjacent to the Mind Flayer Colony’s morgue, and if you press a button in the morgue, you can get a corpse from the Oubliette.

However, once you’re in the Mind Flayer Colony, the Oubliette will remain inaccessible. So, if you haven’t found all the treasures that the Oubliette has, I recommend you get them now.

I’ve marked both loot-worth points of interest on the map. The first treasure is the Parasite on a Zealot, who was discarded in this pit. You can also kill and attack the membranes near this zealot to access a goblin body, which doesn’t have much on it.

The second treasure is literally buried treasure. There’s some gold, some alchemy ingredients, and miscellaneous loot you can sell for a pretty penny. Note, if you fail the survival check, you’ll have to dig where I marked to find it manually.

That makes the dislocated shoulder that weird tentacle monster gave you worth it, right?
