Travel To Moonrise Tower Quest
It started as a main quest, Travel to Moonrise Towers, which can be triggered by talking to Halsin or Minthara.
However, this quest is divided into two subquests: Travel through the Mountain Pass and the Underdark.
If you choose Travel through the Mountain Pass, then you will reach the Moonrise Towers through the Mountain Pass.
If you choose Travel through the Underdark, then you will reach the Moonrise Towers through the Underdark.
While passing from the Mountain Pass, you must go through the Ruined Battlefield.
However, it has a curse that makes people go crazy and lose their sanity, also known as the Shadow-Cursed Lands.
When you travel through the Ruined Battlefield, you need protection from the cursed land, which you can use a torch.
Afterward, you will find Kansif in the Ruined Battlefield, and you need to talk to him for the guide to the Moonrise Towers.
However, he will ask you to plug in a tune to call for the guide, which you must do to call him.
From the corner, Kar’niss will arrive while talking about her majesty, and you need to talk to him for the guide.
Furthermore, he will tell you to stay close to him and not go far from the light. Soon, you will reach the hideout of Harper, where you will meet Branthos, a Harper leader.
This is where you get the choice of whether to defend the Caravan or turn on the Caravan.
Defend The Caravan
If you choose to defend the Caravan, you will have to kill all the Harper and side with the Caravan.
However, you will have a guide that will take you to the Moonrise Towers.
Afterward, you must keep flowing the Kar’niss, where you will reach the Tollhouse. Soon after reaching the Tollhouse, you will arrive at the Moonrise Towers.
Turn On The Caravan
However, if you turn on the Caravan and side with Harper, you have to kill all the Caravan and the guide.
After killing all the Caravan and the guide, Branthos will take the light from the Kar’niss.
Furthermore, Branthos will help guide the refugee from the darkness, which you can rest there.
This will unlock an objective from the quest Seek Protection From The Shadow Curse where you need to reach the Last Night Inn.
Afterward, you can follow Branthos until you reach the Last Night Inn.
However, you will meet Jaheira outside Last Night Inn, who will question why you went there.
You must tell her you want to destroy the Absolute in the Moonrise Towers, and she will become your ally.
Likewise, she will invite you inside the Last Night Inn to drink and celebrate.
Inside, she will talk about the cleric of Selune, who will grant you protection against the shadow curse.
Afterward, you must go upstairs to meet the Isobel, where she will cast the protection spell against the shadow curse.
However, she will warn you that it won’t be enough to protect against the dense area of the shadow curse land, and she will give you a lantern.
Finally, you can read Moonrise Towers using the Lantern and protection spell against the shadow curse.
The Bottom Line
In conclusion, to defend the Caravan or turn on the Caravan in BG3 is a tough choice.
However, either option will take you to the Moonrise Tower but will affect the relations with some characters.
Similarly, you will face the consequences for either siding with Caravan or with Harper.
