The Gauntlet of Shar is an enormous dungeon in Baldur’s Gate 3’s second act.
It is a temple devoted to Lady Shar and her legions of Dark Justiciars.
Process To Unlock Chamber Of Command
To unlock the Chamber of Command, you must complete the puzzle of Gauntlet of Shar.
Here is how you can solve the puzzle of Gauntlet of Shar.
1. Enter Act 2
Players must first enter Act 2 of Baldur’s Gate 3 to reach the ancient temple where the Chamber of Command is situated.
To enter Act 2, they must complete Act 1 by escaping Baldur’s Gate with their companions.
2. Thorm Mausoleum
In Act 2, players must enter the Thorm Mausoleum through the door at X.
Here a main quest should send players starts.
Activate the trio of buttons beneath the paintings of Ketheric Thorm to open a secret doorway.
Here is how you can do it properly:
- Press the button to the left of the doorway, facing the prominent image of Thorm.
- Press the button on the right.
- Lastly, activate the one beneath the solitary image on the distant wall.
Beyond the painting room, players can interact with a Traversal Gem to activate a lift that travels to the Gauntlet of Shar.
Here, players will encounter a room with a statue in its center.
Proceed directly beyond this statue and traverse through the circular wall adorned with intricate blue runic inscriptions.
This path will guide you into a chamber inhabited by skeletal beings.
Engage in conversation with you, although approaching the enemy will abruptly interrupt it.
Overcome these foes and proceed into the room where Balthazar awaits.
4. Inner Sanctum Of Shar
Balthazar will request that you unlock the entrance to Shar’s Inner Sanctum.
Here, a highly significant relic belonging to his master, Ketheric Thorm, is kept.
It is possible to convince Balthazar to entrust you with a bell that grants you control over his colossal sibling, Flesh.
Once the dialogue concludes, you can retreat and proceed directly across the room, descending the stairs.
5. The Umbral Gem
Ultimately, you’ll reach the Gauntlet of Shar waypoint with a backdrop featuring a massive Shar statue.
The pedestal demands an absent Umbral Gem found within the lair of your target, the Orthon, designated by Raphael.
Descend the opposite stairs from the pedestal to locate the Orthon; a Displacer Beast awaits at the staircase’s bottom.
Pursue the creature to the Orthon’s chamber, and eliminate all enemies.
Meanwhile, claim the adjacent Umbral gem by defeating the Displacer Beast.
Place it within the appearing box, granting you access to the Traversal Gem just beyond the pedestal.
6. The Chamber Of Command
Players can take on Lady Shar’s trials: the Soft Step Trial, Self Same Trial, and Faith Step Trial to get through.
Now, utilize your three Umbral Gems to activate the Traversal Gem platform.
Step down to the next level and reach the Inner Sanctum.
Embed the three gems into a separate pedestal to unlock the pathway forward.
Once the mission is finished, the Chamber of Command becomes unlocked.
