Reevor rats

A hero slays the rats.

Reevor's Storehouse is a side quest in the Baldur's Gate Prologue. In "classic" Baldur's Gate this quest is commonly referred to as Reevor's Infestation[citation needed] or Reevor's Rats. Like other side quests in the prologue, its purpose is more to teach the mechanics of the game than to earn the meagre rewards available at this stage.

Talk to Reevor by the Candlekeep Storehouse, and he'll pester you to kill the rats in the storehouse. Go inside and do just that.

Come back out and talk to Reevor again to get your reward: 5Gold Piece IMISC0700000 Item icon BG1 and 50 xp.

In addition to the quest rewards, the five rats that you kill are worth 1 exp each, and there is a barrel inside the storehouse that can be looted for a Silver Ring.

Here's 5 gp, don't spend it all in one place.

— Reevor the Generous

  • Quest Begins:
    Reevor has once again pressed me into service in his storehouse. All reports suggest that our feline forces have turned traitor and that the rats are on the offensive. It appears that I am our last hope in the face of such an awesome display of power. Farewell, dear Journal... Farewell.
  • Quest Completed:
    Mental Note: Don't join the armed forces. They never inform you of the full danger when you enter and they always pay you squat when you leave... Reevor gave me all of five gold pieces for putting my life on the line in there... Isn't there a Candlekeep People's Revolutionary Front I can join, somewhere???
