The Emerald Grove, also known as Silvanus' Grove and Druid's Grove, is location in the Wilderness of Act One of Baldur's Gate 3. It encompasses the large cavern known as the The Hollow and the Sacred Pool.

The Druids of the Emerald Grove are led by Kagha who serves as the leader of the druids in First Druid Halsin's abscence. They are providing a temporary refuge for the Tiefling Refugees from Elturel, though tensions are high. The Grove is on high alert due to the aggression of nearby goblins. Kagha has ordered the Rite of Thorns be preformed to shut the grove off, which would displace the Tieflings.

The fate of the Emerald Grove and the Tiefling Refugees is in the hands of the player.

Emerald Grove Ramparts[edit | edit source]

The Emerald Grove's defensive ramparts.

The south of the Emerald Grove is protected by ramparts. The thick gate can be only be opened by the nearby gate winch. A war horn allows the defenders to rally should the Grove come under attack. To the east of the ramparts is a tall hill, where Nadira has set up with her telescope. The player may intervene to save her. A path winds down north from the hill towards the elevator to the Sacred Pool. Until Tuffet the bear can be convinced to move, the Elevator is inoperable.

A couple of the tieflings have set up a small camp to the west. Should any of the tieflings die, they may end up buried in the small clearing to the west.

The Hollow[edit | edit source]

The Hollow is a cavernous location in the northwest of the Emerald Grove. The majority of the Tiefling refugees can be found here. There are multiple traders in this area, and companions may be acquired here, depending on the player's story choices.

This location contains entrances to the Secluded Chamber, Underground Passage and the Tiefling Hideout. It is north of the Ramparts, and northwest of the Sacred Pool.

The Sacred Pool is at the heart of the Emerald Grove. The Idol of Silvanus is at the centre of the Sacred Pool. It is the site where the Rite of Thorns is being preformed by the druids. A couple druids stand guard at the bottom of the stairs to the Hollow, preventing most outsiders from entering the Sacred Pool during the rite.

The Sacred Pool connects to the Inner Sanctum via the Stone Door X: 25 Y: -10, and to The Hollow via the stairs to the north, the Secluded Cove to the northeast. An elevator leads to the Emerald Cove ramparts in the south.

Inner Sanctum[edit | edit source]

Notable interactions[edit | edit source]

The following are unique interactions that appear when the player first visits the Emerald Grove:

  • When approaching the Ramparts, Aradin and his fellow adventurers will be running for the gates, chased by Goblins. Wyll appears to help fight.
  • After the fight, several tieflings will be processing the death of Kanon. If you head there immediately, you may be able to speak to his sister Arka but she leaves for the Makeshift Prison soon after his death. Other tieflings will come to grieve too. Speak to any them to enact a cutscene.
  • Aradin and Zevlor will get into an argument, which may come to blows unless the player intervenes. Aradin's location might vary depending on this outcome.
  • A bugbear assassin is headed for Nadira on the hill to the east of the ramparts.
  • Looking through the telescope by Nadira to see the dragon.
  • Volo is found interviewing a bear in the Sacred Pool

History[edit | edit source]

By claw and tooth, from root to thorn,

The Old Oak's grove, to wildlings sworn.

The forest rose with claw and tooth,

To tear the darkness from its roots.

In darkest hour, a concord made,

Twixt harp and wild against the shade.

The towers siezed, the battle done,

The moonrise broke the Darkest One

Inner Sanctum Plaques

The frescos in the Inner Sanctum depict the legacy of the Emerald Grove. The first mural shows beasts and druids driving monsters out from their lands. With the monsters driven out, the druids claimed the grove in the name of Silvanus, god of nature.

However, it seems that their strife was not over. Referred to as the 'Darkest Hour', the druids entered a concord with the Harpers to fight "the shade" (The Shadow Curse). Their opponents were Ketheric Thorm's Sharran army. The final victory fresco shows a Sharran helmet broken at their feet. The Moonrise Towers were lost that day.
