During their journey, the player may find specimens of Mind Flayer parasites. While their use may not be obvious at first, the player will figure out how to access overpowered abilities with them.

What are Mind Flayer parasite specimens and should the player consume them

Mind Flayer parasite specimens are rare items found in the world of Baldur’s Gate 3. They are parasites inside jars.

The player can start finding them early, however they will only be able to use them after meeting their guardian in a dream. Once this is done, consuming those parasites is an option with unlocking the Illithid power tree. The more the player finds and consumes these parasites, the more points they will earn to spend and unlock more Illithid abilities, which are quite powerful.

While consuming these parasites will grant the player powerful abilities and make the use of Illithid Wisdom more effective, it may also have some drawbacks. The first is that party members disapprove of this and the other is a greater chance of turning into a Mind Flayer. Transforming into a Mind Flayer can be very problematic as it alienates the player, but can also be avoided when using Illithid powers.

Overall, consuming parasites can be very beneficial to the player as it makes them more powerful and helps them avoid difficult fights. However, it is not necessary at all and the game can be finished without it.

Where to find specimens of Mind Flayer parasites

The player will be able to use Mind Flayer parasite samples after meeting their guardian in a dream while resting in the camp.

Specimens will be obtained by killing NPCs infected with the Mind Flayer parasite and then looting their corpses, the player will be able to obtain a parasite. The player will also find specimens scattered throughout the world in jars. Players will know when they are close to a specimen when the Guardian tells them telepathically.
