The Wilderness is the over-world region in Act One of Baldur's Gate 3.

Overview[edit | edit source]

The Wilderness is is a heavily forested area in Elturgard[1][2], covering a segment of the Risen Road and the River Chionthar somewhere between Elturel and Baldur's Gate.

Notable settlements in the region include the Emerald Grove, the former village of Moonhaven and Waukeen's Rest. A tribe of Goblins, as well as several other types of monsters, have settled into the Blighted Village and the Temple of Selûne to the west. In the far east are Overgrown Ruins

The Wilderness also contains several entrances to the Underdark.

Main article: Ravaged Beach

Located on the bank of the River Chionthar, and the far south-east of the mini-map, the Ravaged Beach is dominated by the wreck of a Nautiloid.. Corpses of fishermen and Intellect Devourers dot the area. There are several makeshift docks, but both them and the fishing boats that used them seem to have been destroyed. To the north-west is a door to the Dank Crypt, while to the north is the Emerald Grove.

This is the Location the player character arrives at immediately after the events of the Prologue, and where Shadowheart Shadowheart is likely to encountered for the first time.

Roadside Cliffs[edit | edit source]

Main article: Roadside Cliffs

The Roadside Cliffs sprawl north of the Nautiloid Wreck and south of the Emerald Grove, between the Forest in the west, and the Overgrown Ruins in the east. Potential companions Gale Gale and Lae'zel Lae'zel can be rescued and recruited here.

Emerald Grove[edit | edit source]

Main article: Emerald Grove

The Emerald Grove, also known as Silvanus' Grove and Druid's Grove, is in the north-east. It encompasses the large cavern known as the The Hollow, and the Sacred Pool.

The Druids of the Emerald Grove are led by Kagha Kagha who serves as the leader of the druids in First Druid Halsin Halsin's absence. 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 to be performed to shut the grove off, which would displace the tieflings.

Secluded Cove[edit | edit source]

The Secluded Cove is another segment of beach to the east of the Emerald Grove. Harpies have set up a nest in the location, who can be a dangerous encounter for unprepared characters.
