How to choose the right Deity for your offerings in Baldur’s Gate 3

Cheat the gods and get away with it.

When you reach the Stormshore Tabernacle in the Lower City of Baldur's Gate, you have the chance to pay respect to one of several deities' statues. It can be confusing to know which god to choose and how much to offer, so here are a few tips that can help you get the best out of the situation.

What god should you choose at Stormshore Tabernacle in BG3?

Although the options are many, I tested making offerings to every god, and the reward is always the same. So, which god you choose only serves role-playing purposes.

Regardless of which statue you pick, once you offer them a certain amount of gold, you will receive a buff called Anointed in Splendour. The blessing grants you +2 in all Saving Throws until the next long rest, and you can reclaim it for free every day by praying in front of the same statue.

How much gold should you offer the deity's statue in BG3?

By the time I reached the house of worship I was level 10, and I had to pay over 3750 gold to receive the blessings. However, I realized the amount of gold you have to offer increases with your character level. So here is a tip that can save you a lot of money:

  • Go back to your camp, talk to Withers and reset your class to level one.
  • Come back to the temple and make the offerings. Because you are level one, you will only need to pay 400 gold.
  • Once you have the blessing, complete your level-ups.

How to get your money back after making an offering in BG3

If you have already paid a lot of money, there is still a way in which you can get everything back. But be prepared to offend the gods.

  • Go down to the temple's basement by entering the Ornate Wooden Hatch (X:103, Y:-30). To avoid getting spotted by the temple cleric, you can cast Fog Cloud around you.
  • The place is trapped, so I used Astarion to spot and deactivate traps. A Strength check with Karlach allowed me loot one of the sarcophaguses.
  • Move on to the next room through the wooden door.
  • There is another trap trigger and a chest for every god's statue. You will find your gold in the one you prayed to, but you can loot all the other boxes too, since they have offerings made by other people.
  • When you loot a box, you will be punished with the curse Castigated by Divinity, which makes your character die immediately when they are downed and spawns an enemy where they fall.
  • You can get rid of the debuff by casting the third-level spell Remove Curse. However, wait until you have looted all the chests before doing so. This is because removing the curse will anger the gods even more, and they will spawn a Deva envoy to fight you. If you remove the curse and then loot another chest, you will be cursed again —then, when you remove that second curse, you will have to fight another Deva, and so on.
