How to Beat Yurgir Fast in Baldur’s Gate 3
There are several ways you can beat Yurgir fast in Baldur’s Gate 3, or BG3. The first method is to sneak up, line up force bombs behind every hostile in the room, then set them all off with an arrow.

However, the most entertaining way to beat Yurgir fast in Baldur’s Gate 3 or BG3 is if you have a really high Charisma and Persuasion score. I’m talking paladin, bard, sorcerer; you get the idea. At the beginning, steer the conversation towards Yurgir’s pact with Raphael. Pretend you dislike Raphael too, and make the demon recite the poem that serves as their contract. Pretend you dislike Raphael, too, as shown in this video. If you pass an Insight check the game rolls for you, the last line of the poem will stick in your mind. Ask why Raphael wanted the Justiciars dead. When it’s your turn to talk next, persuade Yurgir that he still has an audience. If you pass the DC 16 check, he will kill his followers. The next check, DC 21, convinces him to kill his pet displacer. Lastly, if you pass one more DC 21 Persuasion check, Yurgir will kill himself. Feel free to save-scum this whole conversation.
