Crypt Lord Ring

The Crypt Lord Ring is a decent jewelry reward for completing Find Mystic Carrion’s Servant quest in Baldur’s Gate 3. It offers a Create Undead, a level 6 spell from necromancy school. Upon casting, you create a mummy from a corpse that will fight at your side. Necromancy Wizards can also benefit from this ring and the spell because they get an extra cast of the Create Undead spell once per long rest.

It is a decent spell that only Clerics, Warlocks, and Wizards can learn through leveling, so if you don’t have those classes in your team, it’s an excellent option to equip. You can equip it in your character’s ring slot in the inventory, gaining additional bonuses and buffs. No specific requirements limit its use; it can be equipped by characters of any class or companions in your party.

How to Get Crypt Lord Ring in Baldur’s Gate 3

To obtain the Crypt Lord Ring, you must complete the Find Mystic Carrion’s Servant quest from Mystic Carrion in the Philgrave Mansion (X:10, Y:160). Follow these steps during Act 3 in Baldur’s Gate:

  1. Enter Baldur’s Gate through the Basilisk Gate.
  2. Head west to find a remarkable building – Sorcerous Sundries.
  3. Turn left, heading south until you reach Philgrave Mansion (X:10, Y:160) along the water.
  4. On the west side of the building, you must pass an automatic perception check to unveil the hidden door.
  5. Unclok the Door and step inside.
  6. Mystic Carrion waits in the next room.
  7. Speak with him, and you can check his wares and pick up the Find Mystic Carrion’s Servant quest, required to get the Crypt Lord Ring.
  8. If you choose to help Thrumbo: Learn the Mystic Carrion’s immortality secret and destroy his heart.

  10. Loot the ring and the Staff of Cherished Necromancy from his body.
  11. If you choose to help Mystic Carrion: Bring Thrumbo’s dead body to the necromancer, and he will reward you with the Crypt Lord Ring.

Find the Mystic Carrion in Philgrave Mansion

In Baldur’s Gate City, during Act 3, find Philgrave Mansion (X:10, Y:160) the Mansion, situated south of Sorcerous Sundries, along the waterfront. The nearest waypoint, Heapside Strand, offers quick access to your destination.

Upon arrival, you’ll overhear NPCs complaining about a terrible odor and notice the absence of a conventional entrance to the mansion. Save the game and take the stairs on the right side of the building. Your characters will pass an automatic Perception check, unveiling a hidden stone door in the wall. If, by any chance, your entire party fails this skill check, you can reload the save and try again.

You’ll need to pass a 20 DC Dexterity check to unlock the door, so make sure you have a character like Rogue, Ranger, or Astarion. Alternatively, you can use a weapon with bludgeoning damage to forcefully break through the wall.

Start the Find Mystic Carrion’s Servant Quest

Mystic Carrion - Crypt Lord Ring and Staff of Cherished Necromancy Baldur's Gate 3 BG3

Inside, you’ll encounter Mystic Carrion, a unique merchant with a unique attitude look and impressive staff in his hands – Staff of Cherished Necromancy. Start a conversation with him, where you can trade and acquire the Find Mystic Carrion’s Servant quest. He will ask you to find his “lazy undead servant,” Thrumbo. You need to complete the quest to get the staff. However, if you decide to fulfill the necromancer’s request, you’ll receive the Crypt Lord Ring but not the staff. The only way to get the Staff of Cherished Necromancy in Baldur’s Gate 3 (BG3) is to discover Mystic Carrion’s immortality secret, kill him, and obtain the stuff from his body.

Find Thrumbo

Find Thrumbo - Baldur’s Gate 3 BG3 - the Find Mystic Carrion’s Servant quest

From Mystic Carrion, you’ll learn that three more of his undead servants escaped, and they may know where Thrumbo is. Zombies with the clues can be found in the following locations:

  • Strange Beggar Morbus
  • Strange Beggar Lumbar
  • Strange Beggar Sacrum

You have two options: First, search for zombies scattered throughout the city. Alternatively, head directly to the Thrumbo location in the beach house northeast of the Philgrave Mansion within Voynan’s Home (coordinates: X: -55, Y: -121). Inside the wardrobe, you’ll find Thrumbo, the escaping zombie.

He’ll initiate a conversation with you and attempt to convince you that Mystic Carrion is the one you should focus on, explaining that a necromancer can somehow resurrect himself, even after being killed. To permanently eliminate him, you need to learn how he accomplishes this. Your next set of choices will appear like this:

Thrumbo - Baldur’s Gate 3 BG3 - the Find Mystic Carrion’s Servant quest
  1. That’s horrible. All right, I’ll help you. What can I do? – Note: This option will give you Staff of Cherished Necromancy and Crypt Lord Ring
  2. Do you know how Carrion brought himself back?
  3. Quite the story. Now, will you die quietly, or are we doing this the hard way? – Note: This option will result in receiving only the Crypt Lord Ring or Staff of Cherished Necromancy

To acquire the coveted Crypt Lord Ring and the remarkable Staff of Cherished Necromancy, your mission is to eliminate Mystic Carrion, so the quest takes a more intricate turn. Choose the first option if you want to help Thrumbo and get a lot of gold in the process and both gear pieces.

If you help Mystic Carrion: Deliver Thrumbo’s Body to Mystic Carrion

Alternatively, you can select the third option: eliminate Thrumbo, and collect his body (ensure that a character with a high strength ability score carries it in their inventory). Return to Philgrave Mansion and place the deceased zombie on the ground before Mystic Carrion. Engage in a conversation with him, and as a reward, he will give you a covered piece of BG3 jewelry, the Crypt Lord Ring. However, it’s important to note that by opting for this path, you will forego the opportunity to obtain the Staff of Cherished Necromancy. Let’s assume you will take the longer route and assist Thrumbo.

If you help Thrumbo: Discover Mystic Carrion’s Secret of Immortality

The key to the necromancer’s secret of immortality lies within the depths of his lair, which is located beneath the city. To reach it, you must first locate one of the many Baldur’s Gate Sewers entrances. Three notable entry points include a ladder situated to the north of Basilisk Gate, the path through the Emperor’s Hideout in Elfsong Tavern, or the hidden trapdoor tucked away in Flymm Cargo near the docks (check the map above for precise locations). Regardless of the entrance you choose to the City Sewers, your ultimate goal is to discover the passage in the northwest corner of the city sewers map, just next to the Undercity Ruins fast travel waypoint.

Once you step inside and pass a Slight of Hand dexterity check to unlock the door to the necromancer’s hideout, it’s time to prepare for the fight. The Ancient Lair is filled with glided chests, gold, zombies, and other undead servants of Mystic Carrion. They will attack when you interact with any object, so be prepared. After the fight, look for another concealed door on the room’s right wall. Upon approaching, your party will pass an automatic perception check to reveal the passage.

Funerary Jar Form and Function - Baldur’s Gate 3 BG3 - the Find Mystic Carrion’s Servant quest

Inside, you will find some more items: Mystic Carrion’s liver and the brain, but no heart. However, from the Funerary Jar Form and Function book on the table in the corner (X:-1395 Y:85), you can learn that the necromancer is hiding the jars that grant him immortality inside his zombies, and that is probably the reason why he wants Thrumbo back but doesn’t care for his other zombies on the run. Comeback to Thrumbo with the news.

Get the Jar with Mystic Carrion’s Heart from Thrumbo

Return to Thrumbo and explain what you learn, suprisingly he will spit the jar and the heart, allowing you to add it to your inventory. Now, you must destroy the heart to kill Mystic Carrion permanently. The heart will explode, so place it in the same area, move a few septs away, and blow it with any spell or range attack. Now it’s time to face the necromancer.

Kill Mystic Carrion and get the Crypt Lord Ring

Once more, visit Philgrave Mansion (X:10, Y:160). Upon arriving, Mystic Carrion and his undead servants will attack you. It’s a difficult fight where your opponent will cast the Cloudkill, an area effect poison damage, and his ghouls will try to frighten or immobilize your party. I advise you to focus on Mystic Carrion first and defeat him immediately. For his undead, you can use any AoE effects. They should stack nicely for you to kill them. After the fight, Thrumbo and his zombie friends will arrive and reward you with the Crypt Lord Ring. Also, you can loot the Staff of Cherished Necromancy from Mystic Carrion. That’s all you need to know about the Crypt Lord Ring in BG3!
