At the top of Razmith’s Tower in the Sorcerous Sundries building, Lorroakan is plotting to capture Nightsong in Baldur’s Gate 3, and he wants you to help him complete his scheme. Before you make any decisions, I’ll go over what happens when you choose either side and what the best option is within BG3.

Should You Give Nightsong Lorroakan in BG3?

The short answer is no, you should not help Lorroakan in any fashion. You can tell him that Nightsong is alive and well, but you should not give him what he wants. He is essentially just another power-hungry evil wizard that seeks the answers to immortality, and the rewards for helping him aren’t lucrative.

Even just siding with Lorroakan in Baldur’s Gate 3 will cause your whole party to disapprove of your actions. This is still BG3 though, and that means any major decision has its negatives or benefits. There may still be some of you that want to help the mage at Sorcerous Sundries.

What Happens if You Help Lorroakan in BG3?

If you help Lorroakan capture Nightsong, he will become your ally in the main campaign battle to come, along with the four elementals he has with nearly 200 HP. You will be rewarded like any other quest as well, but having five powerful allies can be a huge boon for your camp going forward.

To help the mage, you need to go back to camp and tell Nightsong about Lorroakan. Agree to help her take him down and then head directly back to Razmith’s Tower. When the dialogue begins, side with Lorroakan for a price and then get ready to battle against the daughter of Selune. She is powerful, but she is also alone.

By the end of the fight, he will capture Nightsong and become your ally. But who really wants another angry wizard in their camp?

What Happens if You Help Nightsong Beat Lorroakan in BG3?

When you help Nightsong defeat Lorroakan in Baldur’s Gate 3, she remains your ally along with Isobel. Although there aren’t as many bodies in the final battle without the mage, both Isobel and Nightsong are far more powerful. Now you have all her gratitude for yet another adventure in which your party aided her.

Helping Nightsong also means you get to loot some of the rare items on Lorroakan, including a new robe and a decent Quarterstaff. The fight itself won’t be as easy, and the mage can hit like a truck, but I prefer this version of events entirely over capturing Nightsong.
