Baldur's Gate 3 Sorcerous Vault door puzzle solution

Oct 24, 2023

Solve the door puzzle to gain access to Lorroakan's treasure.

The Baldur's Gate 3 Sorcerous Vault is where the wizard Lorroakan keeps his fanciest magical items tucked away from the outside world. You don't get to be the most powerful magic-user in the city without collecting a treasure trove of artefacts it would seem. But mighty wizard or not, you can totally steal his entire collection.

You won't be able to access the Sorcerous Vault until Act 3 when you arrive in the Lower City, but once you're in, it's a quick jaunt over to Sorcerous Sundries, where you can access the vault. With all that said, here's how to enter the Sorcerous Vault in Baldur's Gate 3 and solve the door puzzle therein.

The easiest way to get into the Sorcerous Vault is through Sorcerous Sundries in the centre of the Lower City in Act 3. From here, there are two routes you can take:

Out of the two options, I recommend the first. While it takes a little longer, you appear right next to the display case containing the vault's first Legendary book; the Red Knight's Final Stratagem. This is also close to the Djinni Lamp, which you can get to by walking east through the wall behind the chest in the room next door.

After making your way through the vault, looting as you go, you'll find a room with a portal, and just past it, a door labelled Ramazith leading into the main vaults. Unlock the door, and, being wary of traps, step inside. You'll find three doors: Elminster, Karsus, and Silverhand. The first two are locked, but by completing a little door puzzle, you can unseal them. Once again, being wary of traps, here's how to unlock the Elminster vault:

You'll find the Elminster door now open, so head through and grab all the treasure, including The Tharciate Codex you need to finish reading the Necromancy of Thay.

Same again, to open the Karsus door, you need to follow these steps:

Now you can get into the Karsus vault, which contains the Legendary Annals of Karsus book, plus a whole heap of other treasure. If you want even more loot, be sure to head back into Ramazith's Tower and steal the Legendary Markoheshkir staff from behind its forcefield.
