If you manage to reach the Underdark in the first act of Baldur's Gate 3, you'll have the chance to encounter the fish people who live there and even become their new god. This guide will explain where the fish people in BG3 are located and help you to become their god.

This guide will show you:

  • How and where you can find the BG3 fish people (Kuo-Toa) location.
  • How you become their god.

How to Find the Fish People, Kuo-Toa in the Underdark of Baldur’s Gate 3

To locate the fish people, you must choose one of the paths that lead into the Underdark:

  • Waukeens Rest: Through the Zhentirem camp.
  • Goblin Camp: Through the chambers of Minthara.
  • Spider Cave: Through the hole where you found the spider matriarch.

If you've already explored the Underdark map, you can teleport to the beach where you found the Duergar camp. From there, it's easy to reach the entrance to the cave of the fish people, which we've marked on the map (coordinates: X: 72, Y: -241).

This is the location of the entrance to the cave of the fish people.

After reaching the mentioned coordinates, you'll come across a ravine that you can cross by jumping directly or by using the mushrooms on the left rock wall. Before crossing, we recommend shooting the orange mushrooms, causing them to explode without harming you. Once you're on the other side, climb down the rock wall, which will take you to the 'Rotten Cave'.

Jump to the other side and climb down the rock wall.

Once in the cave, take the path that leads off to the left and then walk straight ahead to get to the fish people. Talk to Pooldripp the Zealous, the only fish-man who is wearing some fish as a hat. This starts a dialogue sequence.

How to Become the God of the Fish People, Kuo-Toa in BG3

The sequence shows how the fish people worship their god BOOOAL, who then appears. Pooldripp the Zealous then turns to you and tells you that you should be sacrificed to BOOOAL. A choice opens up as to how you can respond, where you choose the following:

  • [Investigation] Get your bearings. What have you stumbled in on?

If you have successfully rolled a 15, you will become aware that the blade stuck in the sacrificed Kuo-Tua belongs to a common red cap, a bloodthirsty fairy creature. Then choose this reaction:

  • [Appearance] Red caps love violence. Bait him with an exaggerated story about bloody fights.

The fairy creature will jump at it and thus expose itself. It will then try to lure you in with the promise of getting power. Choose the following to get rid of the red cap without the Kuo-Toa attacking you:

  • 2. I'll just kill you and claim it for myself.

Defeat BOOOAL and talk to Pooldripp the Zealous in the following. He then praises you as the new god MAHKLOOMPAH. As a new god, you can then decide what to do with the fish people.

Note from the author: I decided to let the Kuo-Toa raise an army for me. To what extent my decision will affect the future game, I can't say yet. However, this could be helpful since you encounter the Kuo-Tuas one more time in the second act.
