Baldur's Gate 3 Hellion's Heart: Where to find Infernal Iron for Dammon

Infernal Iron is an important resource in BG3 for powering up Karlach.

In Baldur's Gate 3, to keep the Hellion’s Heart ticking away like it should you not only need to find Infernal Iron but a capable smith who can shape it into something useful as well.

Luckily for your party, you have likely already met someone with just the right talents, Dammon, the tiefling blacksmith sheltering at the Grove with the other refugees.

To both keep Karlach alive and give her a power boost as well, you need to track down some Infernal Iron to service the engine in her chest, then bring it back to Dammon so he can make it ready to be installed.

Make sure you complete this first part of the quest - Hunt the Devil - while you are in the process of rescuing Halsin, and before you push off into new areas past the Mountain Pass. You will meet Dammon again in the Shadow Cursed Lands and in city of Baldur’s Gate, if he and the rest of the tieflings survive their journey to make it there, of course.

Where to find Dammon in Baldur’s Gate 3

Dammon is found in The Hollow, the area in the corner of the druids’ grove, where you first recruit Wyll, spoke to Zorru about the Githyanki Creche, and found your belongings in the thieves’ den.

Dammon is tending his shop along the cave wall, and has some decent stock as well as being able to help with Karlach.

If you miss him in this area, or send him and the tieflings off elsewhere, don't fret. During Act 2 of Baldur's Gate 3, you'll find Dammon tending to a furnace by the Last Light Inn in the Shadow-Cursed Lands. Following this, he can be found in the city of Baldur's Gate.

This is provided that you keep him and the tieflings safe throughout your playthrough.

Where to find Infernal Iron in Baldur’s Gate 3

One place to find Infernal Iron is in Dror Ragzlin’s treasure room in the Goblin Camp.

Make your way into the settlement however you wish, then in the furthest room at the back you will find Dror Ragzlin, the goblin king, in his throne room.

You can either fight all of the goblins if you’re trying to save the grove that way, or you can simply pickpocket the key from Dror Ragzlin’s pocket.

Walk up the stairs behind his throne, then look for a locked gate. Behind this gate, which is unlocked with Dror Ragzlin’s key, you find a whole heap of treasure as well as some Infernal Iron!

If you’re siding with the goblins or don’t want to start a fight for any reason, you can always lockpick the gate, which should be easy with a rogue or Astarion in your party.

This isn't the only place you can find Infernal Iron. Here are some more places you can find the metal:

  • Blighted Village Blacksmith's Forge - Lockpick the chest up the ladder in this room.
  • Grymforge - Speak to Stonemason Kith and pass the Perception checks.
  • Reithwin Town - A piece of Infernal Iron is laying around in the Mason's Guild area.
  • Gauntlet of Shar - Another piece of Infernal Iron is found in the treasure room inside the mausoleum in Reithwin Town

We'll update this page with more Infernal Iron locations when we find them.

How to complete Hellion's Heart in Baldur's Gate 3

With the Infernal Iron in hand and Karlach in your party, return to Dammon in The Hollow or track him down at Last Light Inn. After a lengthy conversation, he will agree to service Karlach’s heart and get to work with the Infernal Iron.

It’s not long before the procedure is finished, and Karlach is of course grateful for your effort.

Dammon tells you to keep a lookout for more Infernal Iron to continue servicing Karlach’s heart. Once Karlach's heart is upgraded twice, she'll finally be able to touch other people. However, Dammon will bear bad news... but at least the quest will be completed!

Once you fix Karlach's heart and speak with her, you'll have a few options; you can keep her around, or encourage her to go back to Avernus. If you want to keep Karlach in your party, we recommend choosing the former.

Additionally, you can take any extra pieces of Infernal Iron you find to Dammon and he'll make you some items using it.
