Puzzle mechanisms are an integral part of everyday life in Baldur's Gate 3, and theft is no exception. What if you were to combine the best of both worlds and solve a riddle solely for the purpose of stealing Baldur's Gate's greatest treasure hoard? We hope you have brought your thinking cap for this puzzle.
Within the counting house lies a door to the Lower Vaults, the place where the wealthiest and most privileged individuals of Baldur's Gate keep their valuables. To access the Lower Vaults, you must surpass the grand locked vault door and its password. And we happen to possess your cheat sheet.
Where To Find The Lower Vaults Of The Counting House
While obtaining access to the vaults grants you entry to the standard treasury collection of the counting house, it does not provide you with the password to the chamber of the Lower Vaults. And it is within that chamber where all the treasures lie.
Past the reception, down the staircase, past a second gate, and through the area of the standard vaults, you will find a large and imposing vault door. Before it lies a sequence of peculiar symbols on the floor.
What Is The Solution To The Lower Vaults Door Puzzle?
In order to unlock the door to the Lower Vaults, you must step on the buttons on the floor in the correct sequence. If you happen to step on the wrong button, you will need to start over from the beginning.
For this puzzle, you pretend that the symbols on the door are the same as those on a mobile phone keypad, where 1 is located at the top left and 9 is at the bottom right.
The puzzle solution is:
- 1 (Top-left)
- 3 (Top-right)
- 5 (Middle)
- 6 (Middle-right)
After pressing 1-3-5-6, the door will open.
As the buttons are closely situated, we recommend that you select a character and separate them from the group while solving the puzzle. Set aside all others to avoid accidental button presses.
