There are a lot of great characters for you to seek out in the latest fantasy game from Larian Studios. We’ve come up with this guide on where to find Ellyka in Baldur’s Gate 3 since the feisty pink Tiefling has become pretty popular among players.
Though not every NPC you encounter can be recruited as a companion, most of them are usually involved in some sort of quest. There are also a few NPCs that you can run into on multiple occasions throughout the game.
Your first encounter with Ellyka is a bit short, but she has more than enough personality to leave players wanting more. So, let’s go ahead and find out where to find Ellyka in Baldur’s Gate 3.
Where is Ellyka in Baldur’s Gate 3
You can come across Ellyka for the first time standing atop a cliff to the west of Waukeen’s Rest during Act 1. It’s possible to find her again in the Creche Yllek during Act 2, but she won’t be as lively as you expect her to be.
You can try to convince the Tiefling to join your party when you meet her for the first time, but she’ll refuse and run off. Approach Ellyka as a Githyanki and you’ll have dialogue options that can lead to a fight and you may end up killing her.
Unfortunately, it looks like Ellyka will suffer a worse fate if you let her run off after meeting her. During Act 2, you can find the Tiefling in the Creche Yllek but she’ll be deceased with signs indicating that she was involved in a pretty brutal fight.
Can you recruit Ellyka into your party?
No, you can’t recruit Ellyka into your party. Since these are currently the only known encounters with the NPC, you will not get a chance to have her join your group of adventurers.
However, Baldur’s Gate 3 gives you several opportunities to decide which path to take when progressing the story. The path that leads to saving Ellyka’s life in Act 2 may not have been discovered yet.
Ellyka definitely seems like one of the more intriguing characters in the game. Even if you can’t recruit her into your party, it would be nice to get to know her better through a series of quests. But if there really is nothing more to her story, then we have no choice but to pay our respects and move on.
