Baldur’s Gate 3: How to Get Rid of Flesh Rot in BG3

Nothing ruins a good time better that someone's flesh rotting off, to be honest.

There are a variety of different illnesses that can be inflicted upon your character or your party members in the world of Baldur’s Gate 3, but there are only a few that make things more complicated than Flesh Rot. Not only will you lose precious Stamina, but you’ll find that your health takes a fairly drastic toll overall. If only there was a way that we could get rid of this oppressive disease and get back to exploring the world and fighting creatures and demons along the way.

How To Cure Flesh Rot In Baldur’s Gate 3

If you’re hoping to cure your Flesh Rot, you or a member of your party will need to know the spell Lesser Restoration. Casting this either on the battlefield or while exploring the world before you will allow you to heal your wounds, and get back to feeling better than ever. It’s not a proper adventure if someone is losing limbs along the way, now is it?

If you have Shadowheart in your party, she can learn this spell starting at Level 2, and it’s strongly suggested that you have her learn it as quickly as possible so you can avoid one of the most agonizing diseases known in the world of Baldur’s Gate 3. However, if you are playing in any of the following classes, you can learn this spell on your own:

  • Bard
  • Cleric
  • Druid
  • Paladin (Level 5)
  • Ranger

So, if you’re anything like me and picked the Rouge class, you’re going to need someone on your team that has a better grasp on the world of magic than yourself. Having at least one magic user in your party at all times should be almost necessary to avoid running into difficult situations like this, plus their abilities can help make combat encounters more interesting and easy to handle if things get out of control quickly.

If you’re just hoping to get your hands on an overpowered sword at the start of the game or you’re already cruising through the story, make sure that you make a quick stop at our Baldur’s Gate 3 section below. We’ve got countless guides on the game with even more on the way since this adventure is massive and sprawling. We’ve got you covered on every dice roll along the way with a bonus to your overall knowledge.
