Where Is The Strange Ox In Baldur’s Gate 3?

I found The Strange Ox in BG3 strutting around Druid Grove. Whilst this bovine may look like any other one, there is a strange aura to him. Players who have the ability to speak to animals have mentioned the Ox, mentioning it is going to Baldur’s Gate no matter what. 

Apart from that, listening very closely to the moo’s of the ox, they are more human than animal. These reasons have been why the Ox has been labeled the Strange Ox in Baldurs Gate 3. 

The Mystery Of The Strange Ox

As of yet, the mystery of the Ox is yet to be solved, however, there may be a few snippets of information available. First of all, after inspection, it was found that the Ox has Blindsight and Darkvision, which aren’t normal inclusions for animals. Aside from that, once killed, the Bovine exploded in a shower of acid and left behind a Shapeshifter’s Boon Ring.

Currently, all that can be speculated about the bovine is that it is not just a bovine. It is quite possibly something hiding in the shape of a bovine trying to sneak into Baldurs Gate. Whether what is trying to sneak is good or bad, is up in the air right now. 

That is all there to know about the BG3 Strange Ox at this point, but more details will be added.
