Gimblebock is a gnome in Baldur's Gate 3. He is one of the leaders of the bandits that are raiding the Overgrown Ruins. Highly aggressive and selfish, he is quick to start a fight under the assumption you're trying to steal whatever treasure is on the Nautiloid Wreck and in the ruins he is guarding.

Involvement[edit | edit source]

Act One[edit | edit source]

Gimblebock can be found at the Chapel Entrance with Quelenna, Taman, and Warryn. When the player approaches, he will automatically engage them in conversation and ask them to leave.

The player is able to use one of several Ability Checks, including Persuasion, Deception, Intimidation as well as a class-specific option from the Monk, Warlock, Paladin, and Fighter to make him and the others leave, or decide to attack them.

Resolving the situation peacefully will reward 50 Experience, however fighting the bandits will be worth 70, plus getting to take all their gear as well.

Speak with Dead[edit | edit source]

Gimblebock can be spoken to with Speak with Dead.

Player: Who are you?

  • Gimblebock: Gimblebock...

Player: What is your profession?

  • Gimblebock: Thieving. Looting. Cutting throats... wherever there's gold...

Player: Do you have any valables?

  • Gimblebock: Looking for valuables... chapel...

Player: What were you doing here?

  • Gimblebock: Looting... chapel ruins...
    • Player: Did you find valuables in the ruins?
      • Gimblebock: Some... but lower crypt locked...
        • Player: How do I get into the crypt?
          • Gimblebock: Door sealed... can't break it... can't pick it... must be something.

Player: What's inside this place?

  • Gimblebock: The others, searching... chapel ruins. Can't get into lower crypt...

Player: Do you have many people inside?

  • Gimblebock: Handful... Andorn guarding the door. The rest searching...

(If you successfully identify the statue in the Dank Crypt.) Player: Did you know you were breaking into a chapel dedicated to Jergal?

  • Gimblebock: No. Doesn't matter...if his loot's good...

Notes[edit | edit source]

  • As of Patch 1, Gimblebock's race is simply "Gnome", without having a subrace specified (unlike his fellow bandit Warryn who is listed as a Rock Gnome). This may be a bug.
  • Gimblebock has chosen an unfortunate place to stand and talk. If the player could get close enough without being seen they could snap the Coiled Rope holding the Foundation Block above him.
