Baldur’s Gate 3 includes separate worlds that the players can explore throughout their journey in that game. The expansive open-world exploration feature is something that makes Baldur’s Gate 3 different from its previous releases. The game requires the players to visit the Underdark, which is the underground area of the game. Nothing in the Underdark is simple, so the players must be careful with every move they make.

Underdark holds a lot of mysterious and spooky locations that the players will be required to explore in this area. One such location is the Arcane Tower, which is heavily guarded by two Arcane Cannons. Fortunately, there is a specific path the players can follow to get into this tower by avoiding the turrets. In this guide, we will show you how to enter the Arcane Tower in Baldur’s Gate 3.

How to Enter The Arcane Tower in BG3

While exploring the Underdark, you will reach the Arcane Tower at any point in your exploration. However, getting inside this tower is not easy, as you can find two Arcane Turrets guarding the tower’s entrance. These turrets will start attacking your party member as soon as you enter their range, and each hit by these turrets can be fatal.

There are two turrets placed at the entrance of the Arcane Tower. One can be found in the courtyard, and the other can be found in the upper stairs. You will need to sneak past both of the turrets to avoid getting any damage. Make sure you are out of the range of any of these two turrets so you don’t lose much health in the process.

Sneaking past these turrets is not hard if you know how to do it properly. You will activate the turn-based mode as soon as you approach this area. So select each character in your party and repeat the same process for everyone.

Take the path on your left from the ruins and keep progressing till you reach the cliff of the stairs. From the cliff, jump on the mushroom in front of you using the jump action. All of the characters will be able to do it without any issues. Now, from the first mushroom, keep jumping until you reach the red mushroom at the end of this side.

From the red mushroom, jump to the mushroom on the opposite side, adjacent to the tower. Now, keep hopping on more mushrooms and make your way to the cliff. Head along the cliff, and soon, you will find the entrance to the Arcane Tower.
