How To Deliver Nere’s Head in BG3
Fast-travel to the Underdark – Beach Waypoint and search the docks for a boat.
Sail the Underdark Duergar Boat by selecting the “Sail into Darkness” option to reach Grymforge, where Nere’s headquarters is.
While sailing the ship towards the Grymfoge, you will be intercepted by Corsair Greymon, who will ask about Gekh Coal.
If you don’t want to get suspicious, you can get the missing boots from deep gnome slave Thulla and tell him Gekh Coal gave you the boat to deliver the lost boots to Sergeant Thrinn.
When you arrive at the camp, Morghal will approach you and demand a donation while making threats. It’s crucial to refuse by saying, “I won’t pay anything,” to avoid any confrontation.
Now, follow Corsair Greymon to Sergeant Thrinn and talk to her. She will tell you that their leader, True Soul Nere, is trapped behind the Cave-In and wants you to clear it.
After you free True Soul Nere from the trapped tunnel, side with Brithvar and his gang when prompted so you can easily fight against him.
If you want to deliver Nere’s head in Baldur’s Gate 3, you must kill him with a physical attack, although you can use abilities to weaken him before the final blow.
I suggest only casting spells if Nere has over 20 HP to avoid killing him with a magical attack. Fire can scorch Nere’s body, preventing you from completing the task.
Assuming you managed to deal the last blow using a regular physical attack, a cutscene will commence. Following the battle, you must pass a Strength check to be able to decapitate Nere with your character.
Once the task is complete, head back to Sovereign Spaw in the Myconid Colony. He will reward you with the Envoy’s Amulet, which provides a bonus of +2 to Persuasion checks once per long rest.
