In Baldur’s Gate, companions are how you will round up your party of misfits. They come with their own classes, personalities, and perspectives, plus you can also romance them, at least some of them.
Shadowheart is one such companion, offering your party cleric spells and a lot of cool tricks from the trickery domain. She can charm a person, disguise herself as other races and genders, give her and others in the party a stealth bonus, and create illusions.
Just don’t bring her along if you have Lae’Zel, they don’t like each other.
How to Free Shadowheart in Baldur’s Gate 3
Shadowheart is one of the first companions you’ll encounter in Baldur’s Gate 3, second only to Lae’Zel. She’s trapped inside one of the pods in the Nautiloid. In the past, you were not able to free her from the pod and could only recruit her later during Chapter one, but that changed with Patch 5.
There are two ways to open the pod, either through an arcane check or using a key.
The arcane option is pretty straightforward. Choose the option named “There’s magic at work here, but what kind?”, upon which you’ll get an arcane check. If you pass it, you can choose to inscribe the runes on the console next to the pod to open it.
But if you didn’t choose a class with arcane talents, you can open it the old-fashioned way. Just head to the left path and all the way to the end you’ll find a corpse that has an Elaborate Key.
Then head back to Shadowheart’s chamber and use the key to open the Elaborate Reliquary. Within, you’ll find an Eldritch Rune. Use the rune on the pod console next to Shadowheart and you’ll be able to free her.
Once you exit the ship, you’ll find her on the Ravaged Beach.
If you failed to free her from the pod in the Nautiloid during the prologue, you can find her at the entrance of the Abandoned Ruines (or Dank Crypt) during Chapter One.

Fastest Easy Ways To Unlock BUSO HAKI V3 In Pixel Piece
Make it fast and easy by reading this guide!
Some of us who enjoy playing video games are also fans of anime like Naruto, Bleach, and One Piece, and they’re very popular right now because they not only have a TV show but are also featured in various games using mods and occasionally fan-made games. I know that some of you haven’t yet acquired the Buso Haki, but if you want to do so much faster than everyone else, then this guide is just for you.
Buso Haki V3
For those who are new to the game and are unaware of this process, you must wait until nighttime (in-game) because you’ll be entering the Vaill Island, where you must first reach Level 70+ because you won’t likely survive if you don’t level up. You’ll also need $5000 in order to activate a quest from an NPC in that island.
So when you get to Valli Island, you’ll run into an NPC wearing a hat who will give you a mission that requires you to pay $5000. Once you do so, a new objective with the words “Battle 4 Ancient Gorilla of 0/3” appears up on the bottom right of your screen. At that point, you must defeat the Gorilla Boss.
The boss gorilla must be found and defeated three times; he deals a lot of damage when he pounds the ground and hits you with his shockwave fist, thus having teammates who are at the same level as you or who are strong enough to defeat the gorilla will actually speed up the battle.
It is actually recommended to find the respawn point every so often to make your life easier. When you get to the part where the gorilla is, you need to do this so that when you die, you won’t have to go to a random island and it will be a hassle to navigate through the world again just to find one island and beat the Gorilla boss.
The Quest pop-up that was mentioned to you earlier on screen states that you should defeat the Gorilla boss at least three times. Once you defeat the Gorilla boss, you will level up, receive an item called “Soul of Armament,” and learn the skill Armament Haki.
When the Gorilla boss dies, it will take some time for him to respawn, and you will need to defeat him again until you finally defeat him on the third try.
Now that we have defeated the gorilla boss, let’s discuss the advantages of wearing these hakis. The Haki V1 will increase your melee/sword M1 damage by +6 and give you the ability to hit Logia users.
However, 50,000 Haki Mastery points are required to upgrade your Haki to V2. What does V2 offer in terms of benefits? You receive +9 more melee/sword damage than the Haki V1 with it.
And ultimately, of course, in order to truly unlock Buso Haki V3, you actually need 200,000 Haki Mastery points. The advantages of possessing this are that it increases your melee/sword damage by +14 compared to Haki V2, making it currently the strongest in the game.
It takes a lot of grinding to get to the 200,000 Haki point need, but there is an easier way to farm the points for V3. To do this, make sure you have reached Level 100; if not, continuing farming in the world you are currently in until you are powerful enough to reach the island where we’re going to farm the points faster.
You must travel to Syrup Island, which is between Vaill Island’s northeast and east. Once there, you’ll see a lot of players grinding against NPCs to gain Haki Mastery points more quickly.
You may have heard that you should grind straight to Arlo Park, but doing so will only slow you down because the NPCs there are much tougher than those in Syrup Island.
However, if you want to go for it and you have pals who can fight with the NPCs in Arlo Park, feel free to do so.
I hope this was of some help. A tremendous thank you to Nikkolapz for going over each of these details and explaining them so thoroughly. For better understanding check out his video:
