This guide will show you how to get the best ending out of the Baldur’s Gate 3 side quest Search the Cellar. This quest requires you to collect three ingredients: ** The Alchemy ingredients ** The Elemental Powder ingredients ** The Fire/Air/Water/Earth/Luck Powder ingredients These are difficult to obtain, but if you follow this guide you will have no problem finishing the quest.

Baldur’s Gate 3 brings back the classic Baldur’s Gate story, but with a few twists and turns. As the daughter of a powerful nobleman, you must work to both advance your family’s interests and also to save the Kingdom of Amn from the machinations of the evil god Bhaal. Along the way, you’ll find yourself pulled into the strange world of the Drow, and face off against the dark powers of the Abyss. You’ll find yourself doing things you’d never do in real life, and maybe even do things you can’t imagine yourself doing.

I’ve been playing the Baldur’s Gate series since I first got on the computer in 1992, and I’ve always liked the way that combination of story and character development is handled. I remember the first time I played Baldur’s Gate II in 1998, being so intrigued by the character of Jaheira (she was my favorite character in the game, by far). When Baldur’s Gate II: Shadows of Amn came out, it was the first time I’d played an RPG with a fully-voiced and animated cast, and I loved that, too.

As befits a typical RPG, Baldur’s Gate 3 also contains a number of optional side missions that you can attempt.

One of these side missions is Cellar Search, which you get when you explore the village of Blighted, and the quest itself during Act 1 / Chapter 1.

It’s up to him to find the old book and decide what to do with it.

  • THE DEED (CHAPTER) IS UNLOCKED: Act 1 (Chapter 1)
  • RENT : A dilapidated village
  • QUEST GIVER : N/A You should read the magazine


  • To begin this work, you must go to the cursed village.
  • If you are in the village of Blythead, go ahead and investigate the well here.
  • Decide to go into that pit, the whispering depths
  • From here, keep following the path (keep right and ignore the fork in the path).
  • Navigate to coordinates (x:-504 y:-376)
  • Here you will find the Apprenticeship Package, which contains a log (updated log).
  • This magazine is also the reason for this search, so it’s important that you find it.
  • The cellar you must now visit is also in the village of the blind.
  • Once in the basement, find the wooden hatch on the floor (updated protocol).
  • Go to the coordinates (X:-703 Y:-355) where you will find the shelf.

  • To the left of the previously mentioned shelf on the wall (shown above), there should now be a row of drawers that you can open by breaking them open.
  • Behind these boxes/drawers is a lever, operate it.
  • When you push the handle, the hidden door behind the bookcase opens.

  • Follow a fairly straight path to a row of cast coffins, and aim for the coffin to the left of the bucket.

  • However, opening these chests will free the shy/quiet guards, so I suggest you only kill the one in the chest you want if you don’t want to gain experience, otherwise go ahead and open them all.
  • Now let’s go back to the box I mentioned earlier (next to the bucket and behind the column). If you try to open it again, this time you will be rewarded with a dark log.
  • The role of quasite can also be found here, although it is not really necessary for this particular search.

  • The scroll is in one of the boxes (opposite the column, northeast of the box with the dark wood). Remember to examine the same box twice if you have not already destroyed the container.
  • It’s quiz time! Go ahead and examine the ornate mirror, which should be in the same room and on the stairs.
  • Now that you’ve managed to get the books I mentioned (if you’ve been able to follow me this far), you should get the Repeat Name option of the book you’ve read. Ilin Toth. If you don’t understand this, you should either re-read the books or re-read the manual.
  • In front of the mirror in this room. You should tell him your name (I don’t think it’s important). Remember, Ilin Toth is the enemy. (Watch the video to better understand)
  • Go through the mirror and you’ll see a rusty iron door. THANK YOU.
  • Now break in or break down the rusty iron door, for behind it lies the book we need! If you like, you can find a key at the back of the room.
  • Now we can get our hands on Tai’s necromancy.
  • Select the option Put the book in your pocket
  • We now have the choice of destroying the old folio or unlocking it.


RUSSIAN KEY (is needed for the door to the book. It is in the room with Tei’s book, at the back of the room. Originally, the key was not needed)

OLD KEY (Can be used for the double doors on the right side of the city entrance. If you walk from the bridge by the Druid grove. Originally, this key was not needed. The double doors are among the goblins (if you haven’t killed them).


  • If you choose this option, first go to the village of Onkelz.
  • Then examine the well again, the same one you examined, to start the side quest Digging the Cellar. Depth of whispers
  • Drive to the coordinates (X:-498 Y:-368) and turn right at the second fork.
  • If you don’t want to go through the pit, you can find the key to the double doors in the village, just above the doors themselves. Where the goblins will stand unless you decide to kill them.

  • Now you can fight your way through the area or camouflage yourself, it’s up to you, but there will be spiders here that have at least 138 health points.
  • Here, at the end of the path, you now encounter a net that appears to form a bridge. Use the Jump skill to reach the opposite cliff from here.

  • Now get off the cliff
  • Here you will find dark amethysts on the floor against the adjacent wall. THANK YOU.
  • With the black amethyst in hand, open your inventory again and read Ty’s Necromancy book.
  • You should now have a new option – to place the amethyst in the slot on the book cover.
  • You can now open the book (allowances: Astarion disapproves, Gale disapproves). You can also give the book to someone who can talk to the dead, an option you can choose.
  • Then go to the next page and choose the option that suits you best.
  • You then have to roll a few dice to keep turning the pages. That’s why I told you to save money!
  • If you manage to read the entire book, you will be rewarded with the ability to speak to the dead (necromancy spell level 3).
  • NOTE: To open the book and get through the various rolls of the dice, it is best to choose a person with good wisdom. Don’t forget to reinforce this wisdom with spells like leadership to increase skill checks on d4.


  • To accomplish this task, you need the capacity of the bolt guide. It’s just easier to destroy a book that way.
  • When the book is in your pocket, open your inventory and drop it on the ground.
  • Switch to the guide pin roller, aim and destroy! It’s simple!


+ Find the basement.

We found a journal that mentions the basement – and some powerful items. This sounds promising and, most importantly, valuable.

+ Explore the basement

We found the winery mentioned in the magazine. It’s time to look around.

+ Book of the Necromancer found

The cellar master was not only a doctor, he was a necromancer. And he was obsessed with a book.

+ Decide what you want to do with the Book of Necromancy.

We found a strange and powerful folio. Ty’s necromancy. What should we do with him?

+ Open the old book.

The book is closed properly and the mechanism is not locked. Maybe some kind of stone would work?

The necromancer’s apprentice mentioned the key man lost in the tunnels. We have to find it.

We found the gem to open the book.

+ Read the book –

We have opened the book of necromancy. Should we read it?

This folio is clearly very powerful, but we need to read further to discover the full contents.
