After reaching Act 2 in Baldur’s Gate 3, you will square off against enemies who are Invisible. Surprising right? This will make it more challenging as fighting someone who can’t be seen is difficult. But luckily, there are a few ways through which you can easily detect or reveal an invisible opponent. What’s best is that these countermeasures can be learned during your time in Act 1 itself. In this guide, I will tell you all the ways through which you can see Invisible Enemies in BG3.
How to Reveal Invisible Enemies in Baldur’s Gate 3
See Invisibility Spell
As the name suggests, this spell will reveal all the nearby enemies who have gone invisible. It is a level 2 Divination Spell that can be acquired by Bards, Sorcerers, and Wizards naturally. For the other classes, there is a Scroll of See Invisibility that can be purchased at any trader or merchant. The effect of this spell lasts until your next Long Rest, so be sure to make the most out of it.
Let Volo Extract the Parasite
Toward the end of Act 1 and the beginning of Act 2, you will meet an NPC Bard named Volo. While interacting with him, you will have to decide whether or not to let him remove the parasite behind your eye. If you let him perform the surgery, then you will lose one eye. But in return, Volo will replace it with a new Ersatz Eye. This replacement lets you permanently see enemies who are invisible in BG3.
Faerie Fire Spell
Apart from the See Invisibility, you can make use of a Faerie Fire spell. It is a Level 1 Evocation spell that can be unlocked by Bards, Druids, or Drows to see invisible enemies in BG3. Another way to obtain the Faerie Fire spell is by getting the Xyanyde weapon. However, you will have to kill Minthara for that, as this is her melee weapon. Not only all the invisible targets will be visible, but the Attack Rolls against them will have an advantage
Do AoE Damage
Using Spells or Weapons that do Area of Effect damage can also reveal invisible foes nearby. There are spells like Fireball and weapons like Alchemist’s Fire that can do the job for you. But there is a catch. You need to be mindful as the enemy will be invisible and you would probably not want to waste your move. Moreover, this method is temporary and the enemy can go invisible again after your move.
Note: Shadow enemies in Shadow-Cursed Lands (Act 3) can not be revealed using the above methods. To find them, you must use pure light. You can use spells or a Moon Lantern to do so.
You would have only made a correct decision here if you already knew the outcomes. Keeping that in mind, we have made a guide that covers all the important Choices & Consequences in BG3. So be sure to check it out once.
