Baldur’s Gate 3 player manages to accidentally kill Death

Noelle Corbett

A player shocked the Baldur’s Gate 3 community by doing something that was supposed to be impossible: killing Withers.

One of the most notable characters in Baldur’s Gate 3 is Withers.

The mysterious and powerful skeleton is a great help in your journey, allowing you to respec your character, recruit mercenaries, and resurrect dead companions. Since Patch 5, he has also organized the epilogue evening, allowing players to meet up one last time with their companions.

An important fact about Withers that sets him apart from other NPCs is that he cannot be killed. Based on the knowledge you can discover about him during the game, there are good reasons for his invulnerability. However, that’s exactly what one Baldur’s Gate 3 player managed to do.

Baldur’s Gate 3 player accidentally kills Withers with Gale

As Reddit user CAPHILL shared, it’s actually possible to kill Withers even though it should be impossible.

The player discovered this after using the Illithid power “Ability Drain” to reduce his intelligence. Lowering any stat to zero gives the target the Atrophied condition, resulting in instant death.

After a long rest, Withers even became lootable, leading the player to note, “Guess he won’t come back.” »

For those who don’t know, Withers is actually Jergal, the Lord of the End of All and the ancient God of Death. This explains why he is so powerful with resurrection magic that surpasses even powerful clerics.

With that in mind, the fact that a player managed to kill him is pretty shocking and probably an oversight. After all, it’s likely that Larian didn’t anticipate that someone would actually use Ability Drain to Athrophy Withers to death.

Considering Withers’ role in the story of Baldur’s Gate 3 and its ending, his death could have significant, even game-changing, consequences.

Luckily for the curious, the player opted not to reload an old save to see how the game plays without him, so hopefully they’ll share an update on how the rest of the race plays without him. Withers.
