How To Find Nocturne In Baldur’s Gate 3? 

Nocturne is one of the closest friends of Shadowheart, one of our companions during the playthrough of Baldur’s Gate 3.

Nocturne in BG3 can be found in the house of grief. However, the interaction with the NPC differs greatly between the Main character and his dear friend Shadowheart. She will also tell the main character about the backstory of Shadowheart during their childhood days.

This article discusses Nocturne and her location in Baldur’s Gate 3.

Who Is Nocturne In Baldur’s Gate 3?

Nocturne is an NPC in Baldur’s Gate 3, and players can find her in House of Grief

She is one of the few friends of Shadowheart who considers Nocturne her best friend.

The first time players meet Nocturne, they will find her hiding in an area within the House of Grief.

Furthermore, she is a merchant and players can buy and sell wares from her.

Nocturne has no form of unique dialogue for the main character of Baldur’s Gate 3.

However, if the players switch to Shadowheart, she will have various new dialogues.

During the dialogue with Shadowheart, she will reminisce about the old times with Shadowheart. 

Additionally, you can learn a little about Shadorheart’s original hairstyle and her childhood days with Nocturne. 

Furthermore, she also reminds Shadowheart about her injuries from the past.

Thus, meeting Nocturne gives the players a great insight into the life of Shadowheart before they met in the Nautiloid.

  1. After you enter the House of Grief, go straight to Viconia, defeat her, and you will obtain Viconia’s Walking Fortress. 
  2. Then, head straight up, you will meet Nocturne. 
  3. However, to meet her, you do not need to defeat Viconia.
  4. But, if you let Viconia be, she will head toward you with her comrades, and this will cause Nocturne to stay hidden within the area. 

The interaction with Nocturne begs to differ that she is meant to have more effect in the story than just a simple interaction. 

Interaction with Nocturne Bg3
Nocturne will interact with Shadowheart a lot differently in Baldur’s Gate 3.

Furthermore, she will leave the area if the players rest long before meeting Nocturne. 

Thus, it is better to meet her when you defeat Viconia and her comrades rather than take a long rest and head toward her. 

The Bottom Line

Nocturne is one of the few NPCs allowing players to get more information about their companions. 

Furthermore, players can notice that she is much more warm toward Shadowheart than the other characters in the player’s party. 

This is mostly because of their long-standing history with each other, but it shows Nocturne’s care towards Shadowheart more than other people. 

Hopefully, this article can guide you in meeting up with Nocturne and further understand Shadowheart in Baldur’s Gate 3.
