Baldur's Gate 3 is known for its immersive, albeit lengthy, storytelling. Players have long praised the level of detail that developer Larian integrates into the game.

Those who want a replay experience that will truly test them tend to opt for the game's Honor Mode — Baldur's Gate 3's hardcore gaming setting.

In Honor Mode, players are tasked with completing the game's entire story without suffering a single extermination of their party. And, if the player dies, it is not possible to reload the last save, it is permanent death.

A Baldur's Gate 3 player lost his 80-hour Honor Mode game due to sheer “stupidity”

A Baldur's Gate 3 player battled in Honor Mode for nearly 80 hours, only to end up with a defeat described as ” pure stupidity “.

I honestly think there's a new level of stupidity after what I did… » said player Daxtr0, explaining the situation on Reddit.

Indeed, he had planned his game carefully and had tackled the previous challenges without much difficulty. However, once the end of the game was reached, a strange scenario occurred.

He explained that once he began the dialogue with the Emperor to demand the release of Orpheus, he decided ” to highlight the lies and illusions of the Emperor… “.

And what happened next took the player completely by surprise.

The Emperor thus responded with “ a few words in random order “. Then, according to the player “ the following dialog was limited to a single option: 'continue'. I pressed the button, and saw my Tav give the stones to the squid! »

Of course, handing over the stones to the final boss of the game is definitely a failure. But that may not actually have been the OP’s fault at all.

Users were quick to point out that instead of stupidity, it was a bug that caused the failure. Indeed, this bug is not unknown to players in Baldur's Gate 3 Honor Mode.

“The OP was trolled by the continuation bug,” one player commented. He was referring to a glitch that players sometimes encounter where dialogue options are not displayed correctly.
