baldur's Gate 3 nocturne guide

Nocturne is a quartermaster and old friend of Shadowheart who can be found in Act 3 of Baldur’s Gate 3. She resides in the Cloister of Sombre Embrace in the Lower City’s House of Grief. Players can meet Nocturne after progressing Shadowheart’s Daughter of Darkness companion quest.

Here is a simple guide for Bg3 nocturne quest.

To reach the Cloister of Sombre Embrace, players must first enter the House of Grief. Here, they will meet Mirie who notices Shadowheart. After speaking with Mirie and the Inquirer of Grief, Shadowheart will reveal the Inquirer to be Viconia DeVir, the Mother Superior.

Viconia will open a secret passage that leads to the Cloister of Sombre Embrace. Players can either betray Shadowheart or fight against Viconia and her followers. To speak with Nocturne, players must fight and defeat Viconia to keep Shadowheart in the party.

Nocturne can then be found in the northern area of the Cloister. Interacting with her will trigger dialogue options.

Nocturne’s Dialogue and Interactions

Upon seeing Shadowheart, Nocturne’s reaction will depend on Shadowheart’s choices. If Shadowheart left Shar behind, Nocturne may not recognize her. Players then have two initial options:

“Then you two are enemies – not friends.”
Say nothing.

Choosing to say nothing will make Nocturne declare Shadowheart an enemy. Choosing the first option will allow you to trade with Nocturne.

Additional dialogue options will vary based on previous choices. Players can:

See Nocturne’s wares Ask Nocturne to share memories of her and Shadowheart as young girls
Leave

If Viconia was killed, Nocturne will comment that “there’s no need – Viconia is gone.” Nocturne will say she has not yet decided whether to leave the Cloister or remain.

Nocturne’s Background

Little is known about Nocturne’s backstory. She has worked as the quartermaster of the Sharran Cloister for an unknown period. She was also apparently friends with Shadowheart when they were young, though their relationship has become estranged.

Nocturne’s role in Baldur’s Gate 3 is minor, serving mainly to provide Shadowheart with a glimpse into her past and connections to Shar. Players only have one opportunity to interact with Nocturne during Shadowheart’s companion quest.
