Brain Link Puzzle Solution in BG3
To solve the Brain Link Puzzle, you may follow the steps below:
Connect the Four Nodes
Once you reach the Necrotic Laboratory, you will encounter the four Nodes in each corner of the room. The Nodes are;
- Reason (purple)
- Speech (blue)
- Memory (green)
- Emotion (yellow)
Players must connect the Nodes and the Neural Path, which are matched together. Try to create a line with the same colour starting with any of the Nodes and then connect the others in the same way four times.
Remember, you cannot break each of the Nodes’ network by the others; each Node has to be connected in an uninterrupted network.
After linking these together perfectly, you may see each colour glowing significantly, and the puzzle will be completed. Solving the puzzle comes with rewards like;
- Blade of Oppressed Souls
- Braindrain Gloves
- Circlet of Mental Anguish
- Unlocked Flesh Wright Door
The first weapons are potent to defeat boss enemies and other evil creatures in BG3. Not only that, but after completing the puzzle, you may have the Fesh Wright Door unlocked, which will open up new secrets of the Mind Flayer Colony.
