Baldur’s Gate 3: What Happens if You Annihilate Mizora – Answered (BG3)

Let me make the mistake for you

As you traverse the fleshy tunnels that run beneath Moonrise Towers, you’ll stumble upon quite a few Mindflayer Pods. And who should happen to be in one of them but Wyll’s patron Mizora? But should you free her or kill her? And what happens if you opt to annihilate Mizora in Baldur’s Gate 3?

Baldur’s Gate 3: What Happens if You Kill Mizora Explained

Mizora might be one of the most unpleasant characters you’ll meet in Baldur’s Gate, which is quite a feat. You’ve met cannibals, perverts, and pretentious cats galore by this point. So, when you’re allowed to annihilate her, you might be very tempted. After all, if she’s dead, who’s holding Wyll’s pact?

But doing so is, unsurprisingly, a bad idea.

I’ll admit that I gave in to my worse impulses to see what would happen if I flipped the annihilation switch. And what happens is that Mizora goes up in smoke. And so does Wyll. Literally.

Wyll will be reduced to a pile of ashes, permanently killing him. No Scroll of Revivify will be enough to bring him back. And if you have him in your party when you do it, you’ll see him go up in flames before his picture permanently vanishes from the left side of your screen.

The only silver lining, if it can be called that, is that Wyll’s pile of ashes will still have all the items he had in his inventory when he died.

Still, it’s a good idea to skip out on that option and just let her go. Doing so will let you keep the smoothest party member alive, and you’ll get to continue with his personal companion quest.

Things are starting to get pretty tense in Baldur’s Gate by this point. Have you considered letting the tadpoles feast on your brain matter for some new moves and passives? If so, you might want to check out the best powers here.
