Baldur’s Gate 3: Find Missing Letters Quest Guide

Someone is affecting letter delivery in Baldur's Gate 3 and it is up to you to find the missing letters and deliver them.

One of the wildest quests during Act 3 of Baldur’s Gate has you working as a postman. Some letters have gone missing, along with the carrier pigeons. You will not only meet some interesting characters (animals) in the Find the Missing Letters mission but also help the Sword Coast Courier service retrieve the letters and find the culprit behind the missing pigeons.

Find Missing Letters quest location in BG3

You can find the location of the Find the Missing Letters quest in the town of Rivington during Act 3. Once you reach Revington, make your way north, where you can find Sword Coast Courier Postal House. This house can be found at the coordinates (X: 10, Y: 3)

To start the Find the Missing Letters quest, get into the postal house and talk to Postmaster Danzo Arkwright

During the conversation, Danzo Arkwright will ask you to help him find the missing letters because he has some personal stuff in those letters. He will also mention that Post House’s pigeons, who used to deliver the letters from one place to another, are either dead or missing. Once you accept his offer, the Find the Missing Letters quest will be started.

BG3 Find the Missing Letters quest walkthrough

To complete the Find Missing Letters quest in Baldur’s Gate 3, you will need to complete several objectives that we have covered below in a sequence. 

Baldur’s Gate and its outskirts seem to be under attack from murderers. People and animals are dying left and right. While this quest won’t solve the Open Hand Temple murder or murders in the Lower City, you will get an idea about who or what is killing the carrier pigeons.

1. Speak with the Pigeon commander

Baldur's Gate 3: Find the Missing Letters

Once you have accepted the quest from Danzo Arkwright, you need to find the leader of the pigeons, who can be found on the upper floor of the same Sword Coast Postal building. You will observe stairs to the left where Danzo Arkwright is standing in Baldur’s Gate 3. Take these stairs, which will lead you directly to the pigeon commander, who can be seen sitting on a barrel. 

You will need the Potion of Animal Speak or Speak with Animals spell to talk to the Pigeon Commander. Once you start your conversation with the leader pigeon, he will brief you that some of his other carrier pigeons are gone missing.

Pigeon Leader will ask you to find the other missing pigeons on the roof of this building, known as Open Hand Temple. From the post house, follow the marker and go West to find Open Hand Temple to continue your search for the missing pigeons.

2. Reach the Open Hand temple roof

Once you reach the Open Hand temple, go inside from the main entrance. Go straight, and you will find a door to the right leading into the kitchen. You will find another door to exit the kitchen from the back. Exit the door and turn to the right side.

As you come down the short flight of stairs, you will observe some vines going upwards on the right wall. Climb these vines to get to the rooftop of the Open Hand Temple to search for the missing pigeons who were last seen flying this way.

Once you are on the rooftop, you will meet a flying cat called Tressym, who is sitting in a pigeon’s nest. You will once more need a Potion of Animal Speak or Speak with Animal spell to start the conversation with Tressym.

3. Pick up the missing letters from the nest

There, you will have several dialogues with Tressym; she will not admit that she is the culprit behind the missing pigeons. After passing a few persuasion checks, Tressym admits to killing and eating the missing pigeons in Baldur’s Gate 3. Use persuasion or intimidation to convince Tressym to leave the pigeons alone from now on.  

After passing the checks, she will leave the nest. You will notice a bundle of letters inside the nest. Pick up the letters from the nest. 

You can also get a Ring of Blink from this nest. You can get this ring by passing a Perception check while conversing with Tressym, and you will be able to steal the shining ring. 

Now, you must return to Sword Coast Courier Postal House and give the missing letters to Danzo Arkwright. He will reward you with 300 gold for your efforts to find the letters, and the quest will end.

Should you read the Missing Letters in Baldur’s Gate 3?

You can read the missing letter in Baldur’s Gate 3 if you want to double your reward. After reading it, you will learn about Danzo’s shady business with the Zhentarim. Here, you can unlock some other dialogue options with Danzo Arkwright. You can choose to deceive, persuade, or intimidate Danzo Arkwright. 

Once you finish the dialogue check successfully, Danzo Arkwright will give you 300 more gold for staying silent. This is the best course of action, and we wholeheartedly recommend reading the letters during the quest. So, in total, you will get 600 gold by completing the Find the Missing Letters quest in Bg3.
