All Infernal Iron locations in Baldur’s Gate 3

The cast of characters you meet and interact with in Baldur’s Gate 3 are some of the highlights of the entire experience. Odds are most, if not all, will intrigue you in some way, encouraging you to learn more about them and to help them with their personal goals. Like plenty of RPGs, your companions in Baldur’s Gate 3 all have unique companion quests that are unique to them that unlock at different stages of your adventure and relationship with them. Each one asks something different of you, with Karalach being one of the most unique and difficult. Karlach is in desperate need of a very rare resource and asks you to collect something called Infernal Iron. If you’re at a loss for where to find it, here are the places to look.

Where to find Infernal Iron

There are three known pieces of Infernal Iron in the early game.

The first, you can find in the Blighted Village by entering the basement of the northern house. You can enter by somehow opening the locked door or getting in through the ceiling. This is also where you pick up the Masterwork Weapon quest. From the room with the forge, climb the ladder and interact with the locked chest. You, or a companion, will need to pick it to open it up and loot the Infernal Iron.

Our second piece is the Goblin Camp. Make your way to the Shattered Sanctum to the north behind Dror Ragzlin’s throne. There’s another locked door here you’ll need to bypass to enter the treasure room littered with valuables, including one piece of Infernal Iron.

The last piece of Infernal Iron we know of is the hardest to get to. The difficult part is just getting where you need to be, which is the Zhentarim Hideout. This is north of the Blighted Village up Risen Road where you come across a place called Waukeen’s Rest. The house will be on fire the first time you arrive, but instead of helping the soldiers, go through the alleyway to locate a house with some crates blocking the door. Get the crates out of the way and head inside to meet Salazon, who isn’t too happy to see you. You need to use Detect Thoughts to read his mind and get the password to avoid a fight and collect a key to the basement. Go down and use the key to unlock the hidden staircase finally leading you into Zhentarim Hideout.

On the north end of the hideout are two locked doors, but the one you need to break into is the one on the right. Behind it is a chest with the Infernal Iron.

Once you reach Act 3, Infernal Iron becomes a more common drop from the Iron Watcher enemies.

You can spend Infernal Iron with Dammon to repair Karlach’s heart as part of her quest, but only once per act.

Will there be DLC for Baldur’s Gate 3?
A group of four adventures stands on the ends of a cliff in Baldur's Gate 3.

Having come out on both PC and PlayStation, with Xbox said to arrive in the near future, adventurers have already dumped hundreds of hours in Baldur’s Gate 3. This unexpected hit for the CRPG genre is as deep as it is long, and yet some have already managed to plow through all three of the game's acts. Despite there being tons of ways to experiment and replay using all the different Races and Classes, people are already getting hungry for more. In the modern age, DLC for massive hits like Baldur’s Gate 3 is almost a sure thing, and yet this game is by no means normal. From its long early access period to the sheer amount of dynamic and reactive ways to interact with the world, this is a very unique product. That has left many to question whether or not there will ever be any DLC for Baldur’s Gate 3.
Is Baldur's Gate 3 getting DLC?

At the time of writing, there are no concrete plans for DLC for Baldur’s Gate 3, but that doesn't mean it isn't in the cards. The latest update Larian has given on any potential future expansions came from an IGN interview with Product Manager Tom Butler during Gamescom 2023. He stated "We'll carry on patching for a while and then we're all going to take a holiday and then we'll figure out what we do next. But at the moment, we genuinely have discussions. We want to do more. We don't know what yet." No doubt the team deserves a break after the years of work put into Baldur’s Gate 3, and while fans will be somewhat disappointed to know nothing beyond fixes and updates are in the works as of now, you can at least know that it is being talked about.

Making your character can take a long time if you really want to get all the details right. From your race, class, hairstyle, and more, you have a lot of options to tweak before ever starting your adventure. If you're a little too excited, you might end up slacking off on making your character and assuming you can update it later just so you can get right into the action. If so, or you simply want to change up your look after a couple of hours into this massive game, you'll be at a loss as to how, if you even can, change your appearance in Baldur's Gate 3. You may not fully like the answer, but here's the best you can do in terms of altering your appearance after you've exited the character creator.
Can you change your appearance in Baldur's Gate 3?

The answer to this is technically yes, but not in the way you would hope. To get it out of the way, no, there's no way to return to the character creation screen after you've finalized your character. Unlike respeccing your character, there's no NPC, item, or magic mirror anywhere in The Forgotten Realms that will let you change your appearance.

Is Baldur’s Gate 3 cross-platform?
A Baldur's Gate 3 character lights the way.

The biggest CRPG of the year, if not ever, promises a huge adventure that you are encouraged to play cooperatively with up to four friends. While online play is expected in the modern era, Baldur's Gate 3 surprisingly also supports split-screen co-op on every PC and PS5 as well, meaning you can run an entire campaign with a friend side-by-side. As great as all that is, the vast majority of people will likely want to play with a friend in the comfort of their own homes, which might mean a PC player and a PS5 player will want to team up. Is that possible in Baldur's Gate 3? Here's a quick rundown of this game's cross-platform support.
Is Baldur's Gate 3 cross-platform?

In short, no, Baldur's Gate 3 will not allow for cross-platform play. If you are playing on PC, then anyone you want to play online with will also need to be on PC, and the same is true for PS5. While this is true for now, it is possible that Larian Studios may add cross-platform play in a future update, but for now, it is safer to assume it won't come and make your purchasing decision accordingly.
