A Unique Approach to Dismiss Raphael

The player elaborated on how they commenced Act 3, and met the unnervingly friendly Raphael in Sharess Caress. During their session of spell and weapon testing on Raphael, the character suddenly disappeared. This led to the appearance of a 'Quest Completed' window.

As a confirmation of the quest completion, the player referred to their Journal which read, “We made Raphael so angry that he has refused to continue to deal with us.” This not only marked the end of the quest without entering into the proposed deal but also freed the player from the unwanted nuisance of Raphael.

It was followed up by the statement from the player: “Turns out you can be so irritating that the Devil that has been following your party for weeks just gives up.” Evidently, the game, Baldur's Gate 3, provides more alternatives to Raphael’s questline than originally perceived by the players. This approach seems to be one of the simplest and arguably the most entertaining methods for the quest's resolution.
