Baldur’s Gate 3 has many items and resources players can find on their long journey. While some items are straightforward to find out what they’re used for, others are not. Take Soul Coins, for example. These mysterious items can leave the player wondering what to do with them. This guide will cover what Soul Coins are used for and how to get them in Baldur’s Gate 3.

What Are Soul Coins Used For in Baldur’s Gate 3?

Soul Coins are a rare and unique form of currency found throughout Baldur’s Gate 3. The in-game description for a Soul Coin is “strange, incomprehensible whispers emanate from this coin, pervading your mind with rage and despair.” Underneath the description, it states that these coins can be used to power Infernal Engines.

It is known that players can use a Soul Coin to power the infernal engine of Karlach. Recruiting her as a party member in Act 1 and providing her with a Soul Coin will grant her with “Infernal Fury.” Infernal Fury makes her attacks deal additional fire damage while low on HP or Raging, making her stronger than she was previously. This buff lasts until the player takes a long rest.

Feel free to use the Soul Coin when an opportunity arises, such as Karlach, but remember that there may be other uses for this item that are less apparent. Considering the game is so massive, it’s possible that players could discover other uses for Soul Coins as they get further into the game. We will have to wait and see for that.
