In Act 1 Map, the first time you meet Barcus is in Blighted Village. Unfortunately, he is tied to a windmill by Goblins. Your mission is to either eliminate the goblins or convince them to leave Barcus, the Gnome, and Blighted Village alone. After that, you need to stop the spinning windmill and free Barcus.

After the short conversation, you’ll learn he lost everything, including his friends, and will do everything to save them. You’ll part with him here.

Find and Save Barcus in Grinforge

Find and head to the Grymforge, an underground location accessible from the Underdark in Act 1, where you can find and craft one of the best gear items in Act 1, Adamantine Armour and Weapons. Before you explore the Grymforge, try to save Barcus as soon as you arrive.

To complete the task, you will require a special type of explosive called Runepowder. A slave who fled from the Absolute followers, who pose a threat to Barcus, happens to possess a barrel of this unique substance. You must locate the slave and persuade them to spare some of the Runepowder for you. This will come in handy later on.
