Baldur’s Gate 3 Owlbear Cub

The first thing that you will need to do is to find the Owlbear Cave. It is located to the northeast of the Blighted Village. To enter the cave, you will need to continue along the path east from the entrance of Druid’s Grove. After a little while, you will see the entrance near the left side of the area.

After entering the Owlbear Cave, you will need to defeat the Owlbear Mother. Throughout the fight, you will need to ensure that you do not harm the Owlbear Cub at all!

After you have defeated the Owlbear Mother, you will need to head over to the Goblin Camp toward the west side of the Blighted Village. You basically need to find Krolla inside the ruined temple.


Krolla will ask you to participate in a mini-game after paying a fee of 30 Gold. It should not be hard and you can try multiple times if you are unable to get in the first few tries. Once you have won the game, you will need to pursue Krolla to give the Owlbear Cub in your care. If you have high precision, it should be hard at all.
