Baldur’s Gate 3: How to Blind the Absolute

August 17, 2023

Baldur’s Gate 3 Blind the Absolute is another subquest of the Free True Soul Nere quest, in which you’ll have to take out the Scrying Eye – discreetly.

The Scrying Eye is a magic device that allows the Absolute cult to watch an area far away from their present location.

After learning that Elder Brithvar isn’t a fan of the Absolute cult and the True Souls, he will ask you to knife the floating orb-eye without getting caught to double-cross Nere.

Destroy the Scrying Eye can be quite challenging since the whole Grymforge is filled with Duergar keeping an eye on you.

As such, our Baldur’s Gate 3 guide will provide a quick and easy way to destroy the Scrying Eye and complete the Blind the Absolute quest.

How to Start the Baldur’s Gate 3 Blind the Absolute Quest

In order to trigger the BG3 Blind the Absolute quest, you must start the Free True Soul Nere quest by speaking with Sergeant Thrinn in the central main area of the Underdark – Grymforge.

You can quickly get to Sergeant Thrinn if you find the missing boots and return them to her. She will sense that you are a True Soul and ask for help freeing Nere.

Then, look for Elder Brithvar on a balcony with Stone Guard Kur north of the collapsed tunnel. Here are the coordinates (X:-627, Y:353).

To begin the Blind the Absolute quest, speak with Elder Brithvar and agree to help him and his rebels to double-cross Nere.
