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. But once you recruit Wyll and enter Act 2, she’ll approach you with a barbed request in your camp. She’ll request that you free Zarie’l “asset”, starting the quest Rescue Zariel’s Asset.

You’ll find Zariel’s Asset after following Ketheric Thorm into the Mindflayer Colony in Moonrise Tower. There, Mizora will be trapped in a Mindflayer Pod. She’s Zariel’s Asset. Once you find her, you’ll get two options. You can open the pod or kill Mizora.

But killing Mizora in Baldur’s Gate 3 has dire consequences. If you kill Mizora, she’ll vanish from the pod. Wyll will then be consumed by fire and be dragged to Avernus. Mizora isn’t even permanently dead, meaning that Wyll is still bound to his contract. Wyll will be permanently removed from your party. There’s no way to get him back.

If Karlach is in your party, she’ll be furious with you. And disappointed in herself that she let it happen.

If you killed Mizora in Baldur’s Gate 3, the only silver lining, if it can be called that, is that the pile of ashes Wyll leaves behind will still have all the items he had in his inventory when he died.

What Happens if You Spare Mizora in Baldur’s Gate 3

Your second option is to spare Mizora. You can do this by breaking up the pod by passing a strength skill check or passing an Arcana check to understand the Illithid controls beside Mizora’s pod. This is similar to how you recruited Shadowheart in Baldur’s Gate 3.

If you opt to spare Mizora, Wyll will negotiate the end of his pact with her. She’ll agree, and he’ll be free in six months. That sounds like a long time when the world might end, but it’s better than nothing. Likewise, she’ll appear later on in Act 3 as an option to briefly romance and to antagonize you at your camp.

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. And Wyll has quite a few side quests in Act 3.
