How to Reach Withers in BG3
Soon after reaching the Overgrown Ruins, head towards the broken chapel in front of you. In the center of the chapel, you will find a stone hanging on top of a crane. Shoot the stone, and it will fall to create a hole in the ground. Now, jump into the hole and reach the underground, where you will have to fight some Treasure Hunters.
Once inside, you will find a giant statue in front of you. Now, get past the statue and look for the Refectory door. After the door opens, enter the Dank Crypt, where you will likely face some booby traps set for you by the Treasure Hunters. In this room as well, you will find another statue. Get past the statue and you will be required to pass a Perception check afterward.
After successfully passing the Perception check, a button will get highlighted on the wall. Press the button on the wall to open the door behind the giant statue and get to the next door of the Dank Crypt. Soon after entering the room, turn right immediately to find another locked door.
After opening this door, you will find Wither’s sarcophagus lying in front of you. Keep in mind that you might get obstructed by some booby traps set around the sarcophagus. You will also have to fight some undead enemies in this location, but that should not be much hard for you.
How to Unlock Withers in BG3
After reaching the location, interact with the Richly Adorned Sarcophagus and bring the Wither back to life. After a brief cutscene, Wither will ask you one question: “What is the worth of a single mortal’s life?” There are a lot of options for you to answer this question. However, the goal should always be to satisfy the Wither.
You can choose any option you want. There are multiple options that will result in the Wither being satisfied with your answer. However, if you choose an option that does not satisfy him, he will give you more chances by asking the question again.
After successfully satisfying Wither, head back to your camp at night and take a long rest. The following morning, you will find that Wither has already joined your camp, ready to provide all the services you need.
