The Slayer form has returned in Baldur’s Gate 3 but is unavailable from the start. Here’s how to unlock the Slayer Form in Baldur’s Gate 3.
The Slayer Form debuted in Baldur’s Gate 2, as the protagonist of the game is a Bhaalspawn, one of the many children of Bhaal. The game’s protagonist gained the Slayer Form when their soul was stolen, and divine darkness rushed in to fill the void. The Slayer Form was incredibly powerful in that game, but the player lost control of the character, so it was incredibly risky to use.

Baldur’s Gate 3’s How To Unlock The Slayer Form In Act II
To unlock the Slayer form in Baldur’s Gate 3, you must take the Dark Urge origin at character creation. This is where your character is filled with a desire to commit murder and inflict grievous wounds on people. You can resist the dark side, but diving into the pool and embracing a truly evil character is much more fun.
As you progress through the Dark Urge storyline, you will eventually murder an NPC in your camp, whose identity we won’t mention for spoiler reasons. When that happens, embrace the deed as much as possible, and you’ll be visited at night by a mysterious man named Sceleritas Fel, who will reward you for your actions with a magic cloak called the Deathstalker Mantle.
Once you travel through the Underdark route in Act 2, you will visit the Last Light Inn, protected by a priestess named Isobel. When you first meet Isobel, someone will try and capture her, and a battle will ensue. While difficult, it is possible to save Isobel.
After Isobel is saved, you will be visited by Sceleritas Fel, who will ask you to kill her. This is no easy task, as slaying Isobel will lead to her barrier Shattering and the Harpers in the Last Light Inn being cursed and turned into monsters. As such, save your game and take a Long Rest before attempting this task.
Luckily, you do have other options, as Sceleritas Fel will also ask you to kill your lover or, failing that, your closest companion. Killing Isobel might be more worthwhile, depending on how important this other character is to you.
Once you kill Isobel and defeat the enemies in the Last Light Inn or slay the chosen target given by Sceleritas Fel, visit the camp and take a Long Rest. You will be visited by Sceleritas Fel again, who will reward you with the Slayer form.
