What Is Pillar Of Souls In Bg3?

The Pillar of Souls is an integral part of fighting Raphael in Baldur’s Gate 3. There are a total of four Pillars of Souls.

However, these Pillars do not show themselves until the fight begins.

Furthermore, players may have difficulty destroying the Pillars because of the swarm of demons that flood the arena during the fight.

However, destroying them may be much easier if the players use various long-range skills or try to move tanky characters to the Pillars.

But not all methods can go according to one’s wishes. Thus, prepare well before heading into the thick of fighting Raphael.

Players can also destroy the Pillars by simply attacking them. Thus, it may be better if players use characters with great attack power and good defenses.

Players must go through a swarm of demons and other mobs during the fight to get to the Pillars.

However, two out of four Pillars are right beside the players, thus, they can start by destroying those and then move on to the harder ones.
