How to Get Hellrider’s Pride in Baldur’s Gate 3

There are four ways to obtain Hellrider’s Pride Gloves in Baldur’s Gate 3: you can steal them from Zevlor in the Emerald Grove or loot them from his body if you decide to side with the Goblins and eliminate everyone in the Emerald Grove. Lastly, during the ‘Save the Refugees’ quest, if you manage to convince or defeat Kagha to halt the ritual, you will receive the Hellrider’s Pride as a quest reward from Zevlor. When you first arrive at Emerald Grove, Zevlor is one of the first NPCs you’ll meet, and this encounter initiates the ‘Save the Refugees’ quest. After your initial conversation, you can begin progressing toward obtaining the Hellrider’s Pride gloves. Let’s look at all 4 possible methods to get Hellrider’s Pride in Baldur’s Gate 3

1 Stealing to Get the Hellrider’s Pride

The theft approach shouldn’t be difficult if you have Astarion as a companion or a character skilled in Sleight of Hand with high Dexterity. Head to the Secluded Chamber in the Hollow – the cave in Emerald Grove where Zevlor spends most of his time. Initiate the sneaking action, and discreetly steal the gloves without being detected. However, remember that if you are caught, your relationship with Zevlor and the Emerald Grove Tieflings may be negatively affected.

2 Kill Zevlor to Get the Hellrider’s Pride

Similarly to the Stealing method, Zevlor can be found in the cave behind the door inside the Emerald Grove. You can simply enter and kill him, but be aware that you’ll be banished from Emerald Grove, everyone will attack you and even if you manage to escape you won’t be able to come back to the settlement, and Druids will finish the ritual.

You can also follow the story, visit the Goblin Camp, and side with Minthara and Goblins and help them raid the Emerald Grove and kill everyone inside including Zevor. Either way, you’ll be able to loot gloves from Zevlor’s body.

3 Kill Kagha to Stop the Ritual and Get the Hellrider’s Pride

The third available option to obtain the Hellrider’s Pride in Baldur’s Gate 3 is to kill Kagha. After speaking with Zelvor, accept the task to kill Kagha. Locate her in the Druid’s Cave near the ritual circle and engage in combat. Rath and his wolf will remain on the sidelines, but the other present animals and druids will attack you. Depending on your level, the fight may prove to be challenging. Additionally, the battle will extend to an outdoor area, with druids outside, so be prepared. Once you’ve defeated Kagha and her followers, return to Zelvor to claim your reward: the Hellrider’s Pride Gloves.

4 Convince Kagha to Stop the Ritual and Get the Hellrider’s Pride

Lastly, you can obtain Hellrider’s Pride by convincing Kagha to stop the ritual without Halsin’s assistance and prior to visiting the Goblin’s Camp. Although this method takes more time, the reward is certainly worthwhile, especially for those playing a ‘good’ character seeking to avoid unnecessary bloodshed. Inform Zelvor that you’ll do what you can, then proceed to the Druids Grove to speak with Kagha. After that, look for a chest hidden at the back of one of the rooms. This white chest, named ‘the Kagha Chest’, is concealed between rocks and vines. Open it to find a letter inside that initiates the quest. If you can’t locate it, don’t worry; simply head to the swamps and the next step.

As indicated on the map below, travel west from Druid Grove and then south of Blighted Village to reach the swamps known as Putrid Bog. On a small island with a large, old tree, you’ll encounter four Wood Woads, and Ancient Mud Mephits. Defeat them; this battle shouldn’t present a significant challenge. After the fight get closer to the tree and if you successfully pass an automatic perception check, you should notice a piece of loose bark on the trunk. Open it to discover the Letter to Kagha, which unveils her plan to surrender the Emerald Grove to the Shadow Druids. Be sure to read the message so the quest can be updated.

Come back to Kagha and tell her you know about her secret plan. She won’t be pleased with you so make sure you’ll choose the following decisions during the dialogue:

  • [PERSUASION] The shadows won’t save you – they’ll corrupt you. Stop this, while you can.

And then:

  • [PERSUASION]You know I’m right. Don’t let the shadows corrupt you.

The first Persuasion skill check requires a DC 15, while the second requires a DC 10. If you successfully pass both checks, she will see reason and agree to stop the ritual. Now, head to Zevlor to inform him of your accomplishment and receive the Hellrider’s Pride gloves.
