True Soul Nere Boss Tips

True Soul Nere is trapped under the rubble once you reach the dig site at the Grymforge. If you interact with him, he will tell you to hurry in freeing him.

If you don't do as he says, and decide to take your time exploring the rest of the Grymforge, True Soul Nere will be dead by the time you return to the dig site. Taking more than two long rests will trigger this situation. (Don't worry, you can still find all his loot even if you don't fight him)

To prevent him from dying is to don't interact with the rubble and explore the rest of the Location at your own pace.

This is a long fight, and Nere won't be fighting alone, there are many Duergar that join the fight. You can decide to side with Nere against Brithvar and his rebel forces, or you can instead decide to fight alongside Brithvar and face boh Nere and Sargeant Thrinn and her forces.

      It's not a question of whether I let him live, but whether I want his items badly enough to avoid shoving him into the lava river.

        i killed him (along with everything else on the floor) the moment he walks out after being freed... by throwing the entire barrel of rune powder at him from the safety of the balcony nearby. poor gnome collaterals BUT THE *BOOM* WAS WORTH IT!!!

          You can save gnomes and not kill him if you first kill the dwarves, then mind read him and then pass will check.

            if you let him die you still get everything he has. It seems that if you do rescue him and try to save the gnomes , any choice you do leads to him attacking you and getting the dark dwarves angry at you. If you let him die the dark dwarves stay non hostile.
