You will need Infernal Iron to fix Karlach’s burning chest, which keeps her from touching other people. If you want to romance Karlach then you will need to help her. During the The Hellion’s Heart quest, you will need to find Infernal Iron and bring it back to Dammon, to help cure Karlach. In this Baldur’s Gate 3 guide, we go over where you can find Infernal Iron.
The Significance of Infernal Iron
As players delve deeper into the game, they will come across Karlach, a unique character with an Infernal Engine housed within her. This engine requires Infernal Iron for its maintenance. By collecting Infernal Iron and its variants, players can ensure Karlach’s engine functions optimally, preventing any potential malfunctions.
Where To Find Infernal Iron In Baldur’s Gate 3
Infernal Iron Location #1: Blighted Village
In the northern house of the Blighted Village, players will find a basement. This basement can be accessed by setting a calcified web on fire, revealing a pit to jump into. Once inside, climbing a ladder will lead players to a chest containing a piece of Infernal Iron. However, players should exercise caution when opening the explosive chest below, as it can destroy the ladder and hinder access to the Infernal Iron chest.
Infernal Iron Location #2: Shattered Sanctum
The Shattered Sanctum is a notable location where players might encounter Dror Ragzlin. Here, the Iron Gate can be lockpicked (with a DC of 20), or players can simply obtain the key from Dror Ragzlin’s corpse. The treasure crates in this area not only contain Infernal Iron but also other rare equipment and a substantial amount of gold.
Infernal Iron Location #3: Mason’s Guild Main Building
Another piece of Infernal Iron awaits players in the main building of the Mason’s Guild. To access this piece, players must have a Moonlantern equipped while exploring the area.
Infernal Iron Location #4: Zhentarim Hideout
Players can also find Infernal Iron within a chest located in the Zhentarim Hideout. The chest is inside a room with two wooden chests but you need to steal a key from Jarg. If you’re caught steeling the key or while opening the door, the situation results in a battle.
Infernal Iron Location #5: Gauntlet of Shar
In the Gauntlet of Shar, players can obtain Infernal Metal from Orthon. This can be achieved either by deceiving Orthon or by defeating him in battle. The loot can be found in the northeastern corner of the central chamber.
How To Use Infernal Iron
Upon recruiting Karlach, players can engage with Dammon at the Emerald Grove to learn more about her Infernal Engine. After gathering the required Infernal Iron, players can deliver it to Dammon, who will then repair Karlach’s engine, enhancing her overall state. It’s essential to note that players should choose not to raid the Emerald Grove to ensure this interaction with Dammon remains available.
