Baldur's Gate Wiki

Jarlaxle is a infamous male drow fighter and current leader of the Breagan D'aerthe mercenary company. He will be found within his HQ house (possibly in another plane) only if the party obtains the Gilded Rope from Visaj, as part of the Intrigue with Jarlaxle side quest in Ust Natha.

Ah! It worked. I wasn't sure it would... these things have a way of never working out exactly as you plan. Thinking on the fly is an occupational hazard.

If the party braves the entry into Deirex's Tower with the rope in hand, then after confronting the lich all will be transported to the conference room in Jarlaxle's House.

Jarlaxel (and Visaj) will have dialogue with the party regarding a task that shall be performed for Him. This is covered in the quest page.

If the party ever feels as if would like to attempt to attack or kill Jarlaxle, then it will soon be apparent that it is nigh impossible, as the scripted dialogue actions don't permit enough time to do much of anything - as there are no free time gaps that allow the player to control their PC's.

Also, if ever the city is hostile to the party, then so will be Visaj and Jarlaxle. This would effectively prevent this encounter with Jarlaxle from occurring.

Installation of the Sword Coast Stratagems Mod makes some changes to Jarlaxle's creature scripts, and abilities. An SCS tactical fighter script is supplied for more intelligent attack and defense behavior, as well as potion use. Jarlaxle now has 5-pips in Longsword weapon proficiency (and thus has improved to hit and damage, as well as APR). 2 pips in Dagger proficiency and 3 pips in two weapon fighting style. This is mostly moot, as fighting Jarlaxle is probably impossible during this questline.

Another appearance of Jarlaxle will occur if pursing the The Sellswords mod. That mod can begin in Chapter 6, beginning in Waukeen's Promenade.

Also, the extremely large quest mod Region of Terror features Jarlaxle as villain against your party if you bring along and help Drizzt Do'Urden. The culmination of the main quest pits your party against Jarlaxle and Artemis Entreri.
