Baldur’s Gate 3: How to Complete Help Kith’rak Voss in BG3

Kith'rak Voss needs your help freeing Orpheus in Baldur's Gate 3, and this guide shows you everything you need to know.

If your Baldur’s Gate 3 group is interested in releasing Orpheus from his prison in the Astral Prism, you’re going to need some help. As you progress towards Act 3 in the game, Kith’rak Voss will approach your group and vow to assist you with this action.

Should you choose to accept it, Kith’rak Voss will do his best to work alongside you, freeing Orpheus and fighting against the Lich Queen, Vlaakith, who leads the Githyanki Empire. Here’s what you need to know about how to complete Help Kith’rak Voss in Baldur’s Gate 3.

All Help Kith’rak Voss Quest Steps in Baldur’s Gate 3

To complete Help Kith’rak Voss, you’ll need to

  • Meet Voss in Baldur’s Gate.
  • Find and speak to Voss in Sharess’ Caress.
  • Speak to Raphael in Sharess’ Caress.
  • Tell Voss about the deal with Raphael.
  • Retrieve the Orphic Hammer from the House of Hope.
  • Show the Orphic Hammer to Voss.

Help Kith’rak Voss is a quest in BG3 that will begin at the start of Act 3, but you’ll have to have met Voss late in Act 1. After confronting Vlaakith at Rosymorn Monastery, Voss will meet you at your camp, requesting your assistance.

You then have the chance to speak with Voss early when you arrive at Baldur’s Gate during Baldur’s Gate 3’s Act 3. When you initially arrive at the city, you can find him inside the Sharess’ Caress before you reach Wyrm Rock Fortress, and you can speak with him in Raphael’s room.

Approach these two, and Raphael will want a discussion with you and your Baldur’s Gate 3 party without Kith’rak. Here, Raphael will make an offer to you that you can accept or refuse where he’d get the Crown of Karsus after defeating the Elder Brain. You can choose to decline, but you won’t get the ultimate weapon you need from him: the Orphic Hammer. It’s the tool you need to acquire to unleash Orpheus, the trapped Githyanki Prince, inside the Astral Prism with the Emperor.

Accept Raphael’s deal and he’ll immediately offer you the Orphic Hammer, which you’ll then only need to show to Voss outside Raphael’s room to complete his quest.

But declining the deal means you’ll need to find another way to acquire the hammer. We declined the offer for our Baldur’s Gate 3 playthrough, spoke with Voss after, and promised another way to get the hammer.

How to Get the Orphic Hammer From the House of Hope in Baldur’s Gate 3

If you declined Raphael’s deal, the next step to help Voss is to find another way to get into the House of Hope with your BG3 group. To do this, you need to track down a diabolist. Thankfully, there’s one in Baldur’s Gate, and you can find them at the Devil’s Fee, a small store in the Lower Cities, where you can speak with the character named Helsik, who is willing to sneak you into The House of Hope, for a fee.

Should you pay Helsik’s fee, you can get inside the top floor of her home and begin the ritual for you and your BG3 group to get into the House of Hope. There, you’ll meet Hope, a captured Cleric you can save after you’ve acquired the hammer and worked your way through the area. When we went through this area, we found grabbing Hope and bringing her out with us extremely helpful. It made surviving the House of Hope much easier, and fighting Raphael was a much easier time.

Speaking of Raphael, after you obtain the Hammer and get Hope out, Raphael will meet you and your Baldur’s Gate 3 group after you reach the final door. Before you leave, you’ll need to defeat Raphael in battle. During this fight, we focused on his Cambion allies and the four Soul Pillers he’s using to empower himself in the four corners of the room. After those were defeated, my team focused entirely on Raphael and quickly dispatched him, with heavy assistance from Hope.

Where to Find Kith’rak Voss in the Undercity in Baldur’s Gate 3

The final step in this quest is to track down Kith’rak Voss in BG3 and show you’ve acquired the Orphic Hammer. You should be able to locate Voss underneath Baldur’s Gate in the Undercity, where you can also track down the Guild and worshippers of Bhaal.

You’ll be able to find Voss to the northwest of the Guild, along the pathway of the small boat that you can ride through the sewers. Alternatively, he can also be reached by unlocking a door. However, Voss was never there for our playthrough. Unfortunately, because Voss was never there, we could not complete the quest this way.

Instead, we could complete the quest by confronting the Elder Brain and beginning the final battle in Baldur’s Gate 3. During that sequence, there will be a natural moment where your character can choose to free Orpheus from the Astral Prism. And you can work alongside Voss, who appears after you and Orpheus leave the Astral Prism. Voss will devote himself to your fight alongside Orpheus, and Orpheus will be able to fight the Lich Queen, Vlaakith, to set the Githyanki people free.

Help Kith’rak Voss Rewards

If you show the Orphic Hammer to Voss in BG3 before confronting the Elder Brain, Voss will give you the Silver Sword of the Astral Plane as a reward. This sword is easily the best weapon in the game for Lae’zel. It has the following stats:

  • Weapon Enchantment +3.
  • Damage: 2d6+Strength Modifier (slashing), +1d6 psychic (conditional upon use by a Githyanki).
  • Special Effects: Githborn Psionic Weapon, Githborn Psionic Resistance.
  • Weapon Skills: Pommel Strike, Lacerate, Cleave, Soul Breaker.
  • Proficiency: Martial.
  • Properties: Two Handed, Greatsword.
  • Weight: 2.7 kg.
  • Value: 1,300 gold.

Techincally, that’s all you’ll get for helping Voss in BG3 other than an ally for the Gather Your Allies quest. But you’ll also get to keep the Orphic Hammer which ain’t a bad weapon in it’s own right, and you’ll get the opportunity to free Orpheus.
