In Baldur’s Gate 3, the NPCs are known for their eccentricity and quirky demands. Among them is a Deurgar who insists on finding her missing boots and won’t settle for any other footwear. It’s easy to dismiss her behavior as strange, but perhaps if we step into her shoes, we can understand her attachment to them.
Similar to the other side quests, this one also lacks clear directions. The only means of discovering and completing it is through sheer luck. However, with some good fortune, we can help you quickly complete the Find the Missing Boots quest in Baldur’s Gate III.
How to Start the BG3 Find the Missing Boots Quest
In order to begin the BG3 Find the Missing Boots quest, head to the beach area of the Underdark. The exact location is marked on the map below, and you can quickly get there using the waypoint. Once you arrive at the beach, seek out Gekh Coal, an NPC responsible for locating the boots for a Duergar sergeant whose life depends on it.
To receive the task of finding the missing boots, it’s best to approach Gekh Coal without confrontation and listen to him. He’ll explain that the stolen shoes belong to one of the Duergar sergeants and were taken by a slave called Thulla, who has since gone missing. Agreeing to help Gekh Coal will trigger the quest and set you on the path to finding the lost boots.
Where to Find the Missing Boots in Baldur’s Gate III
To find Thulla, head to the Myconid Colony in the Underdark. You can fast-travel if you have the waypoint or check the above map location. Once there, persuade the Myconids to allow you to proceed to Sovereign Spaw.
From the Myconid Colony waypoint, turn left and climb a few mushrooms to find Thulla, who is currently poisoned on the ground.
To retrieve the boots, you have a couple of options at your disposal:
- Give her an antitoxin.
- Give her an antidote.
- Take Sergeant Thrinn’s boots.
- Cast Lesser Restoration.
If you are playing a lawful or good character, you can give her an antitoxin, an antidote, or cast Lesser Restoration (one of the classes with this ability is Cleric). Then, she will gladly give you the boots.
After you cure her, she will tell you more about her kin being held captive by the Duergar, unlocking the Save the Grymforge Gnomes quest. Otherwise, you can simply take the boots from her feet without curing her. You can cure her later, and she won’t hold any grudges for taking the boots.
How to Reach Sergeant Thrinn in Grymforge
Regardless of how you obtained the missing boots from Thulla, return to Gekh Coal near the Underdark – Beach waypoint, who will provide further instructions. He will ask you to deliver the boots to Sergeant Thrinn at the Deurgar camp.
To reach the Duergar camp in the Grymforge, take the Underdark Duergar Boat from the harbor and select the “Sail into Darkness” option.
While sailing the ship toward the camp, Corsair Greymon will intercept you and ask about Gekh Coal. Let him know that you’re delivering the boots on his behalf. Upon arrival at the camp, you will be confronted by Morghal. She will make threats and demand a donation.
It’s important that you refuse by saying, “I won’t pay anything.” and she will leave you go without a fight. Now, follow Corsair Greymon to Sergeant Thrinn and talk to her.
If you give her the missing boots, she’ll let you choose from two gear pieces as follows:
- Armor of Uninhibited Kushigo – While Patient Defense is active, the wearer can use their reaction to make an unarmed strike against any attacker that misses.
- Bracing Band: After shoving an enemy, the wearer gains +1 to their Armour Class until their next turn.
Also, completing this quest unlocks the Free True Soul Nere quest, which presents a tough choice that can either gain Sergeant Thrinn as an ally or make her your enemy. Make sure to visit our Baldur’s Gate 3 Wiki Hub Page if you want to find and complete more quests.
