Baldur’s Gate 3 players unimpressed by Patch 6 NPC changes

Shane Black

The Baldur’s Gate 3 community is noticing an improvement to Gondian behavior after Patch 6’s release, though there is still room to grow.

The Gondians are a small group of characters that play a role in one of Baldur’s Gate 3’s biggest side quests of Act 3.

However, their behavior caused players a lot of frustration as they always seemed to put themselves in harm’s way.

But this seems to have changed after Patch 6, though many in the Baldur’s Gate 3 playerbase believe there is still plenty of ways to improve.

Baldur’s Gate 3 fans think Gondians are smarter after patch

The Baldur’s Gate 3 community is discussing the change on the game’s subreddit, where a player asks: “Is it me or have the Gondians stopped being suicidal?”

They explain how before Patch 6’s release, the Gondians always would waste abilities to get close to an enemy that was about to explode, and overall, just put themselves in harm’s way all the time.

However, it seems this is no longer the case: “They’re using Misty Step to get away from the Banites and the Watchers and attack them from range with Acid Arrow or Fire Bolt. Some even use it to get to the tubes in the roof where they are out of range for everyone???”

The community is largely in agreement that the Gondians are much better than they were, though as one user says:

“They’re better but they’ve still got death wishes.”

Another Baldur’s Gate 3 fan shares a section of the patch notes that mentions improving the combat with the Gondians, including making them more careful and smarter.

The issue is that the fans think its changes the wrong thing about them:

“Honestly, their stats, proficiencies, and spells were not the problem. Their tendency to actively suicide and take objectively bad actions was the problem.”

It’s clear that Patch 6 made some improvements to the Gondians, as well as plenty of other things in the game, but there is still more work to be done.

“Just yesterday I had one cast Grease over an open flame and have it immediately explode. It did nothing but damage and kill one of the other Gondians who was at low health but would’ve otherwise survived.”

Despite its massive success, the Baldur’s Gate 3 community does see areas that it can improve and it’ll be up to the devs to do so.
