Baldur’s Gate 3 is filled to the brim with secret items, passageways, and lore. No wonder it has been regarded as one of the best games to be released in 2023. However, players have recently made a discovery regarding the Scythe of Myrkul in Baldur’s Gate 3. So, if that came as a shocker to you and left you wanting to get the Scythe for yourself, this is just the article you need.
Myrkul is a deity in the Dungeons & Dragons universe, often associated with death and the dead. In the context of Baldur’s Gate 3, Myrkul is a boss that players need to defeat in order to progress to the third act of the game. Up until now, players would get a bunch of items after defeating this boss, but recently, some figured out a way to get the Scythe of Myrkul, which is something quite extraordinary. If you are wondering how to get it, continue reading until the end.
Baldur’s Gate 3 (BG3): How to get Scythe of Myrkul
Before we get into how you can get your hands on Myrkul’s Scythe, you need to know some important things. Firstly, you will need to have progressed well past Act 1 into the concluding parts of the second Act of BG3 to encounter this character. In fact, Myrkul will be the last boss you fight before you move on to Act 3 of the game. But that is not all; Myrkul actually appears as a boss in the second phase of the fight with Thorm. Now, if all of that sounds confusing, do not worry; we are here to clear things up.
When to fight Myrkul?
Players will encounter Myrkul, the god of the dead, during a pivotal boss battle in Act 2 of the game. This encounter is divided into two distinct phases, with the appearance of Myrkul serving as the second phase of the battle. The first phase involves confronting General Thorm, a formidable opponent. Now, this boss fight can be incredibly tough, with some players claiming it as one of the toughest fights in the game. Therefore, be ready to try multiple times. After successfully defeating General Thorm, the battle transitions to the second phase, where players face the wrath of Myrkul. This imposing boss presents a significant threat with his over 200 HP, area-displacing attacks, potent abilities, and scythe. Just like with Thorms, you will need to be on your toes to defeat Myrkul. To have a better chance at looting his Scythe from his dead body, use melee weapons while trying to stay as close as possible to Myrkul.
How to obtain his Scythe?
Here’s the crucial part for obtaining the scythe: Pay close attention to Myrkul’s body right after defeating him. As a cutscene will trigger immediately after the battle ends, you’ll need to loot his body quickly before the cutscene triggers. This can be tricky due to the short timeframe, but it’s essential for obtaining the scythe. Once you’ve successfully looted the body and obtained the scythe, equip it by using the mouse and keyboard to drag your main-hand weapon onto the scythe in your inventory. This weapon can replace your main-hand weapon and become usable. Now you can try out different moves with the scythe to see what it is capable of.
Note: Since timing is a crucial factor in obtaining this scythe, save-scumming before the fight and trying multiple times is the way to go.
Even though it is usable, players who have had their hands on it have reported it to be a bit glitchy. Perhaps the developers did not fully intend for the player to get hold of this weapon. But now that you know, you can go ahead and try to get it for yourself. Anyway, that is all for this guide. We hope this was helpful.
