Baldur’s Gate 3 How to Escape Jail

Escape Jail BG3 – In the latest Baldur’s Gate 3, there are numerous ways by which you can end up in a jail cell. Players can become thieves and outlaws, murderous characters or even an anti-hero.

However, even the characters trying to stay good in the game can end up in jail. So what can be done in such a situation? Let’s find out!

How to Escape Jail in Baldur’s Gate 3

Take this example, when in the game, parties stumble upon Mol (a young character) and her hideout, she will give them a count of 10 to leave, and when the party doesn’t, she will take it as a threat and then would report the party for threatening a child. In the game, it is possible to avoid jail if you can somehow roll the dice and result in a 20. However, the chances are pretty slim.

The first jail that players can get thrown at is the Hollow, and the following guide explains how you can escape it and retrieve your belongings. Keep reading to find out!

Avoiding Jail: Dice Roll in BG3

When the party has been reported to the authorities, the guards will try arresting them. At this point, players can use Deception, Performance, Wizard or Persuasion to avoid getting arrested. Even though this depends on the Charisma stats, it is a bit possible that the party gets lucky and deceives or persuades them into leaving them alone and avoiding jail. Here is what you have to do:

  1. Select the Deception, Performance, Wizard, or Persuasion option. This will initiate a dice roll. The screen for the dice roll will appear. 
  2. If available, add bonuses and roll a 20 or more. 
  3. If the dice roll fails, instead of fighting, players should surrender.
  4. The players who are determined to win can load their last save.
