Baldur's Gate Wiki

This is the Watcher's Keep - Bard's Gloves area of the Watcher's Keep Teleport Maze. This area is available during Baldur's Gate II: Enhanced Edition saga, as early as Chapter 2. It is also available as part of the Baldur's Gate II: Throne of Bhaal campaign if playing the original or Enhanced Edition game.

Area description[]

A large roughly squarish chamber is seen, with supporting pillars and columns stretching the tall ceiling. Great vertical banners with glowing symbols are hanging on eastern and western walls.

Arched stone wall alcoves are seen on the north and south permitter. Two stone stepped dais structures are placed to the north and south ends of the room, on which the familiar keep portals are mounted atop.

The center of the room's floor is inlaid with a huge symbol of Helm. A pile of potential treasure is visible on it (T2).

To the east of the room is a smoldering campfire, and a makeshift lean-to tent with some treasure inside it (T1).

Resting on this dungeon level[]

This room/area is safe to rest in. There are no random chances of encounters that can disturb the sleeping party.
