Mind Flayer Parasite Specimen Locations in Baldur’s Gate 3

The Baldur’s Gate 3 Mind Flayer Parasite Specimen items can only drop from specific enemies or locations. These are related to the Illithid Wisdom/True Soul mechanic, since you have a psychic connection with many of these foes. Once you’ve obtained these orange and green bottles, you’ll gain a point, which can then be used to unlock an ability. You can learn more in our Illithid Powers guide.

List of Mind Flayer Parasite Specimens

In any case, we list down the Baldur’s Gate 3 Mind Flayer Parasite Specimen locations that we’ve discovered throughout our campaign. Take note that there are likely others that can be found along the way. However, you also need to be mindful of campaign progression, since you could miss out on certain areas and encounters as you advance further in the game.

Druid Grove/Wilderness – Brynna and co.

You’ll stumble upon novice Brynna, her pal, and a dead fella just west of the Druid Grove. You can just use Illithid Wisdom to avoid fighting them. You can then loot the body to absorb the tadpole and obtain the specimen bottle.

Risen Road – Flint the Gnoll Warlord

Ideally, you’ll want to battle these rabid gnolls while you’re standing on an elevated section, such as a rock formation. This allows you to shove or cast pushing spells to send them to their doom. Likewise, you can get close enough to the Gnoll Warlord, and then use Illithid Wisdom to make it turn on its allies. Once the pack has been cleared, you can kill the Gnoll Warlord to grab this loot.

Goblin Camp/Shattered Sanctum – High Priestess Gut, Dror Ragzlin, and Minthara

The three Goblin leaders will need to be eliminated as part of a main quest:

  • High Priestess Gut can be convinced to move to a small room. If you can take her out in a single turn, she won’t even be able to call for backup.
  • Dror Ragzlin, meanwhile, is surrounded by his thugs. If you try to enter his mind, you can make him ask questions to the dead Mind Flayer. However, you have to avoid the questions about who killed it, since you’ll be revealed as a traitor. You could also position your ranged units and spellcasters on the wooden beams at the ceiling so you can avoid melee attacks.
  • Minthara is quite a tricky character. You can actually romance Minthara, which implies that she’s a potential companion. However, doing so means that you have to kill innocents, which will cause Wyll and Karlach to leave your party forever. It’s better to just save the Tiefling refugees as part of the quest.

Grymforge – True Soul Nere

Both the Shattered Sanctum puzzle and Auntie Ethel’s lair lead to the Underdark. That location also takes you to the Grymforge, which is the base of operations of Duergar slavers. There, you can choose to side with or battle True Soul Nere. Eliminating Nere rewards you with yet another Mind Flayer Parasite Specimen in Baldur’s Gate 3.

You can either side with True Soul Nere, or the Duergar who aren't members of the cult.

Last Light Inn – Flaming Fist Marcus

Upon reaching the Last Light Inn during the game’s second act, you’ll finally meet Jaheira. She also introduces you to a Cleric named Isobel, who’s casting a ward that prevents the curse from seeping into the sanctuary. Agents of the Absolute then invade the building in an attempt to kill Isobel. One enemy, Flaming Fist Marcus, also holds a specimen bottle.

We also have to mention that Isobel’s survival is important. Apart from this battle, there are decisions related to the Dark Urge and the Nightsong that can lead to extremely drastic outcomes for many characters.

Moonrise Towers – Disciple Z’rell and Linsella

Eventually, you’ll assault Moonrise Tower to put an end to Kethelric Thorm. Two of his lieutenants, Disciple Z’rell and Linsella, will enter the fray. Z’rell has the devastating Black Hole spell that slows down multiple targets while funneling them into one central location. Linsella, meanwhile, arrives fairly late to the fight, so you can beat her after taking out the priority targets.

Disciple Z'rell has deadly spells that you need to watch out for once you eventually need to fight her.
