1. Accept The Offer

Furthermore, accepting his deal will also require you to deal with a high-level demon.

Moreover, a few failed skill checks could cause considerable damage to your party.

2. Decline The Offer

If you decline Raphael’s offer in Baldur’s Gate 3, the demon will get offended, but the deal will remain available.

Similarly, if you ever change your mind, you can make a deal with the devil.

After passing on the offer, your party’s respect for you will also increase, and you’ll be free of Raphael’s strings moving forward.

Further, refusing Raphael doesn’t mean you must miss out on his offerings.

Moreover, players should dedicate their time to finding a better way to help their characters than making a deal with a literal devil.
