How to Get a Working Moon Lantern

During your subterranean adventure through the Shadow-Cursed Lands, you’ll soon bump into an arachnid-like Drider named Kar’niss. Luckily, he’s largely quite a jovial fella, though there are a few opportunities where you can fight him.

How to Find a Broken Moon Lantern

As is par for the course in epic CRPGs like Baldur’s Gate 3, there are likely more ways than one to get your hands on a broken Moon Lantern. That said, we found a broken Moon Lantern by taking one of three specific paths that lead to the Moonrise Tower.

Specifically, if you go down through the Underdark beneath the Goblin camp, you’ll quickly become embroiled in a conflict between rebel goblins and their True Soul Nere leader. Basically, you’ll need to rescue the leader by locating some explosives.

Interestingly, however, if you kill or pick the pockets of True Soul Nere, you’ll be able to get your mitts on a Broken Moon Lantern. But is there a way to repair this damaged lantern?
