Baldur’s Gate 3: How To Solve The Moon Door Puzzle
It’s common for dungeons in RPGs to be filled with annoying puzzles, and Baldur’s Gate 3 has a doozy – which is why TheGamer has created a guide to help players bypass the moon door.
In the Early Access version of Baldur’s Gate 3, the player can visit an abandoned temple of Selune (the goddess of the moon) that has been taken over by monsters and evil clerics. The deepest levels of the temple are sealed away by a puzzle involving stars and moons. There are four circular plates on the floor of the room, each with symbols showing full moons, half moons, and new moons.

The player can spin the plates in order to line up the moons in a different manner. One of the circles has a light shining on it, while another has a star pattern in the shape of Selune’s symbol, which can be difficult to see when playing on low graphical settings. The secret to working out this puzzle can be found in a cryptic hint a few rooms earlier, which is written in a journal kept by a former priestess. The star pattern is based on the symbol of Selune, which is another clue for the puzzle’s solution.
Before attempting the puzzle, the player should ungroup the other members of the party, as this will stop them from getting in the way when trying to manipulate the circles. Just move them to the side of the screen, ungroup them, and return to the puzzle. In order to bypass his puzzle, the player needs to move all of the new moons (the black circles) onto the plate that has the light shining on it. The full moons (white circles) needs to be moved onto the circle with the star pattern on it. The remaining half-moon circles need to be moved to the edges. See the screenshot above for a visual guide for the correct layout.
Baldur’s Gate 3 is a game that features a lot of combat and character interaction. As such, puzzles take a backseat to the action. Larian still managed to squeeze in at least one brainteaser for the players who love bizarre dungeon design.
Baldur’s Gate 3 will enter Early Access on Google Stadia and PC on October 6, 2020.
