Baldur's Gate 3 Twist of Fortune

Twist of Fortune

In Baldur’s Gate 3 the Twist of Fortune seems like a basic type of Morning Star until you look more closely at one particular weapon Action it provides. For characters with Martial Weapons Proficiency, those who equip it can use the action Blood Money. Strike out greedily, dealing an additional 4 Piercing damage per 300 Gold that the target possesses. This action can be used once per Short Rest.

On the surface that might not seem like very much. Certainly against ‘poor’ enemies that only carry a few gold around in their pockets, it’s not going to do much good. But against richer opponents, this could potentially obliterate! If you have a high Dexterity character with the Sleight of Hand skill, you can make this weapon hit even harder. Simply have that character pickpocket your opponent – expect you want to put lots of gold IN their pockets. And then promptly take them out with a Bloody Money hit!

How to Get Twist of Fortune in Baldur’s Gate 3

You can get Twist of Fortune by playing Bladur’s Gate 3 until you enter the Shadow-Cursed lands in Act 2, then explore until you find the Reithwin Tollhouse. The Tollhouse is located in the western half of the map, just a bit northeast of Moonrise Towers. Inside, on the second floor you’ll find what looks like a large woman made of gold clanking around. There is Gerringothe Thorm. When you approach/get too close, you’ll automatically trigger a dialogue scene with her.

Gerringothe immediately asks you what you’re bringing and demands gold. If you make the correct dialogue choices you can get her to actually kill herself. If that doesn’t work you can also fight her. However, be careful because she’ll use the Twist of Fortune morningstar against you. If she hits your main character carrying all your gold, she’s likely to one-shot you.

Gerringothe Thorm Dialogue Choices

If you’re going to try talking your way past, you will first have to give her at least one piece of gold. Then there are a number of different dialogue options you can make, each based on a particular skill and with their own difficulty check. Here are the two possible dialogue trees with their accompanying Difficulty Checks:

  1. A Deception with an 18 DC. “I’m here to replace you as toll collector.”
    • Another Deception at a 21 DC. “You’ve been promoted! You’ll collect gold from a much better tollhouse.”
    • A Persuasion at a 21 DC. “You’ve done a great job here. Really set the standard. But I’ll take it from here.”
    • An Intimidation at a 21 DC. “You dare to question their decision? Leave this place at once!”
  2. A Persuasion with an 18 DC “Why stay in this rotted building? Take your gold and be free.”
    • Another Persuasion with a 21 DC. “Says who? Seems to me there’s no one here to oversee you.”
    • A Deception with a 21 DC. “Haven’t you heard? The local authority has decreed the gold belong to the toll collector – you.”
    • An Intimidation at a 21 DC. “Not anymore.”

Unable to comprehend your terms, Gerringothe Thorm appears to implode in a slash of gold. You can now walk right up to loot her, and get the Twist of Fortune as your reward!
