Baldur's Gate 3: where to find Zevlor in BG3

How to find and rescue Zevlor in Baldur's Gate 3

Zevlor is a contentious character that you meet quite early on into Baldur’s Gate 3. He is seen as the leader of the Tiefling refugees who are camping in Emerald Grove and stubbornly refuses to leave until either the Druids force them, or you solve the issues between the two factions.

Still, he’s ultimately a good character that doesn’t deserve the unfortunate fate that might befall him if you don’t rescue him during Act 2. We’ll tell you where to find Zevlor and how to rescue him.

This is just one of many discoveries in Baldur's Gate 3 though, so check out our guides on how to complete the Gauntlet of Shar, finish the masterwork weapon, and open Necromancy of Thay.

Zevlor’s location – BG3

BG3 Mind Flayer

Zevlor is trapped in the Mind Flayer colony under Moonrise Towers. To get there you’ll need to progress the main story, as the colony doesn’t become available until after your first battle with Ketheric Thorm. In there, you’ll eventually come across the Tadpoling Center, where loads of innocent victims are being stored in pods, Zevlor among them.

How to rescue Zevlor – BG3

BG3 Zevlor

On a nearby wall, there will be a fleshy-looking console called a Neural Apparatus when you hover over it. Activate it and you’ll free Zevlor, along with the other victims in there that haven’t yet been transformed. Be warned though, as those who have transformed will also be set free, so get ready for a fight.

Once the Mind Flayers are dealt with, Zevlor will offer his aid for the fight ahead, and it’s up to you whether to bring him along or send him on his way. An extra hand would certainly be useful in the upcoming boss fight, but it could also easily lead to Zevlor’s death, so it’s up to you whether or not you take the risk.
