BG3: Slave Mind [How To Find & Uses]

Learn everything there is about the exciting features of the Slave Mind in Baldur's Gate 3 and where to find it.

The Slave Mind is a collectible found in Baldur’s Gate 3. Often neglected, you can find the consumable useful in the game. You can find it by exploring the Nautaloid Ship in the initial stage of the game.

Key Takeaways
  • The slave mind is a harvested brain that can be used as a consumable to restore HP or interact with the surroundings in Baldur’s Gate 3.
  • It can be found in the Nursery Room on the Nautalod Ship.
  • The complete uses of the Slave or the Dark mind are still yet to be found.
  • You can also use it for decorating the camp or sell it for 1 Gold at a vendor.
  • Moreover, it is a heavy object weighing 10 KG; carrying it may cause your character to reach a Max Level of Encumbrance.

The Slave Mind is an ingredient that has several uses. When consumed, it can help you restore HP or help you to interact with the surrounding environment. As described in BG3, the Slave Mind is a humanoid brain, alive and suspended in a cerebrospinal fluid.

  • It weighs 10 KG and has a Value of 1 Gp.

It can be found starting by exploring the Nursery room on the Nautaloid Ship in the prologue section, simultaneously with its counterpart, the Dark Mind. The Early Access also had a third similar collective called Our Mind. However, three of them didn’t have any use before.

These mind collectibles can also be used as decorations throughout the game. Until now, the complete uses and attributes of them are still unknown. Also, since both Minds are harvested brains, you can find them near any Mind Flayer Interactions as you progress through the game.

Uses Of Slave Mind

In my experience, Slave Mind has the following in-game uses:

  • You can access new interactions with the help of one or two Slave Minds.
  • It can be used for decorating camps.
  • You can also use it as a particular interaction item during Act 2 by opening up new dialogue options.
  • They are mainly consumables; you can spend them restoring some Hit points or buffing your character.
  • If you want to eliminate them, you can sell for 1 Gold at a vendor.

The drawback you get from the Slave mind is that it is too heavy to carry. As a result, if your character’s strength ability is low, it can reach maximum Encumbrance. Also, you may think that the Slave Mind may be used concerning your character’s Illitihid powers. However, that is not the case. The attributes and abilities enabled through your Mind Flayer connection are accessed by earning Illihid Potential.

So here is all about the BG3 Slave Mind from my side. Since the world map of Baldur’s Gate 3 is massive, it is challenging to find all the uses of Mind collectibles accurately. Many players mention many uses of the Slave Mind in Act 2, but that is not entirely true. BG3 is packed with countless other collectibles you can discover. Speaking about exploring, you may want to know how to find and solve the Stone Disc Puzzle.
