In this article, we’ll talk about one of these companions and his story, namely Gale, and whether you should give artifacts to him as well as the best artifacts to opt for in Baldur’s Gate 3.
While playing Baldur’s Gate 3, you will meet many characters and in most cases, they have a long and interesting story behind them. Now we will tell you more about Gale and his story. Based on all the information provided, you will be able to decide how you should behave.
Everything You Should Know About Gale and Artifacts in BG3
Gale is one of the characters you can meet in Act 1 by exploring the central part of the Ravaged Beach and inviting him to your team after the rescue. According to Gale, he once had an affair with the goddess Mystra, but he performed a dreadful feat, which resulted in his being defiled by forbidden magic.
After visiting the Nautiloid, he became infected, and now, in order to prevent the terrible catastrophe of the Netherese orb inside him, he needs to consume the Weave of powerful magic items. You can help him by giving him artifacts that you find during your travels, or you can refuse to do so, which will result in him stealing them from you. Also, keep in mind that your greed will affect Gale so badly that he will dare to make a deal with the devil, so if you care about his fate, you better feed him.
Should You Give Artifacts to Gale in BG3?
So you have three options. You can kill him so that he doesn’t bother you and steal artifacts from you, but this will still result in his ghostly projection asking you to revive him. Or, you can agree to help him and sacrifice artifacts from time to time to avoid causing a catastrophe. You can also ignore him and avoid any conversations with him, although to be honest, this still won’t solve the problem completely. If you choose the second option, here are the artifacts that are best suited to give to Gale:
- Amulet of Selune’s Chosen
- Disintegrating Night Walkers
- Idol of Silvanus
- Iron Flask
- Shadow of Menzoberranzan
- Staff of Crones
- Sword of Justice
- The Necromancy of Thay
As you could guess, Gale doesn’t care what kind of artifact you give to him, since he is ready to consume them all. In other words, you can generally use this companion as a trash can for objects you don’t need. But still, even this approach has certain limitations, and you will not be able to feed it artifacts blessed by a deity or too large items. You can check if Gale can eat an item in its description.
We do not recommend that you sacrifice all of your artifacts to him, as it is not known what consequences this will lead to. Be sure to keep a few useful artifacts that will help you in battle.
In conclusion, we would also like to mention the reaction of players, namely that most of them have a negative attitude towards Gale. They consider him narcissistic and self-centered and have no desire to help him. Ultimately, the fate of Gale depends on you, because you decide whether to help him or not.
