Discover the secrets of the Gauntlet of Shar Umbral Gem Puzzle, a crucial part of the quest “Find Ketheric Thorm’s Relic” in Baldur’s Gate 3 with our comprehensive walkthrough.
Entering the Enigmatic Dungeon
Upon entering the dungeon, your path is blocked by a central statue, enveloped in a magical barrier that pushes you back when approached. This statue is encircled by eight lanterns suspended from the ceiling, all of which must be lowered and extinguished to unveil the concealed passage forward.
Navigating the Tricky Terrain
The room is fraught with treacherous traps, and a keen perception check can prove invaluable in avoiding these dangers. In order to evade the traps, it’s advisable to take leaps into the side rooms.
Dealing with the Lanterns
Within one of the side chambers, you’ll find a lever located at each corner. Traverse these four side rooms and interact with the levers to lower all of the lanterns, ultimately shrouding the room in darkness. Make sure to unequip the moon lantern if it’s currently in your possession.
Revealing the Path
As the room plunges into complete darkness, you’ll observe two magical rings encircling the statue, each featuring a gap allowing your character to pass through and access the central Orb.
Solving the Umbral Gem Puzzle
To prevent your other teammates from triggering the force field, it is recommended to control a single character. To complete the puzzle, move within the patterned lines and interact with the Umbral Gem resting on the pedestal.
This interaction will unlock the gateway, granting you access to the next stage of your adventure.
With this guide, you can successfully navigate the Gauntlet of Shar Umbral Gem Puzzle and proceed on your quest to Baldur’s Gate 3.
