However, this can be done by jumping from the wooden balcony along the Wyrm’s Crossing in Baldur’s Gate 3. On your right, you need to get inside the crack located in the wall. Doing so will lead you to the front of the dilapidated wall.
Crack the wall using any of the blunt weapons. Inside this, you will find yourself in front of one of the prison guards. Defeat him and loot the key from him that you can use to get through the Prison Entrance Door.

How to defeat Gortash in BG3

Beware of the Bombs
The only thing that you need to look for here is the bombs that come your way during the fight. They will deal plenty of damage to you and your party members within their radius.
Here, you can do a thing that will not only prevent damage from bombs but also deal back damage to the Gortash in Baldur’s Gate 3. The strategy here is to throw the back to where Gortash is standing. During the fight, Gortash will apply a shield around him, but the bombs will still damage him.
Get rid of his Lieutenants
Gortash will get help from a couple of his lieutenants during the fight. Due to their low health, you can quickly eliminate them with a single bomb. During the fight, Gortash will use the Manifestation of Tyranny spell to enhance the damage to him and his lieutenants. But even after that, they are straightforward to eliminate.
Always maintain your distance from the Hand of Shadow
During the last stages of the fight, Gortash in Baldur’s Gate 3 will summon a Hand of Shadow. You must maintain your distance from it as it will deal much damage.
