You can find Gortash at Wyrm’s Rock. His precise location changes based on whether you go to him directly or after talking to Orin.

  • Going directly:
    • If you choose to go to him then you can find him in the Throne room.
  • After talking to Orin:
    • Orin requests you to kill him as she is bound to not do it herself. So here is how you get to him:
      • Method 1:
        1. Use the northwest stairway near the coordinates X:16 and Y:233.

        3. Here, find and interact with the Lever and it will open the hidden doors behind. This will take you outside.

Pro tip before starting the fight with Gortash or meeting him make sure to destroy the Turrets and force curtains as they can be troublesome when the fight starts.

Should You Side With Gortash in BG3?

Whether or not you choose to form an alliance with Gortash comes down to a personal preference and the type of playthrough you are going for. In his offer, he asks you to kill Orin. However, the fight with her is harder than the one with him. So it is better to give a neutral answer rather than immediately starting a fight.

That’s all for the location where you can find Gortash in Baldur’s Gate 3. I suggest you also check out our BG3 section for more help on other such topics.
