Baldur's Gate 3 flesh rot: How to cure the rotting flesh status effect and other diseases


Baldur's Gate 3 flesh rot - man with disease

The world of Baldur's Gate 3 isn't exactly what we'd call friendly. But then again, which RPG really is? Among beasts, ghosts, demons, creatures, you also have to fight against diseases. Let's find out how to address the Baldur's Gate 3 flesh rot and a lot of other strange illnesses.

Nearly everything you come across can (and most likely will) try to kill you. If you're not careful, you'll end up dying in a plethora of horrible ways and regularly find yourself loading up an earlier save and hoping for the best.

Sometimes you'll be minding your own business trying to stay safe and then bam. Diseases. If you're hoping to find out how to cure the Baldur's Gate 3 flesh rot, among other nightmarish diseases, then you're in the right place.

How to cure diseases in Baldur's Gate 3

The good news is that you can cure diseases, unlike in real-life where they tend to be a little bit harder to deal with. All you need is the right tools, which in this case, tends to be a spell, the Cure Disease spell plus a Lesser Restoration wouldn't hurt.

This is a Level 3 spell from the Abjuration school of spells. Lesser Restoration is simpler, being a level 2 spell. While normally you would simply rest to get back health, that would not work in the case of a diseased character. They would simply continue losing health while sleeping.

So, what you want to do is have a character with the Lesser Restoration spell, so you can cure the disease and then they can have a rest. Clerics have this spell many times, so - for example - you might want to use Shadowheart for that. She'll get the spell at level 3, but other classes can get the spell too.

Which classes can get the Cure Disease spell?

Obviously, this spell isn't limited to just Shadowheart. In fact, all Clerics, no matter which domain they choose to go with, can learn Cure Disease at level 3.

Other classes can learn this spell as well. For example, Cleric, Druid, Shaman, Paladin (once they reach level 5) and even the Ranger.

Still, if you are just running low on health points, we recommend using the rest ability as that restores health points much faster than a restoration spell. Since health potions are not common at all in Baldur's Gate 3, you'll have to rely on a mix of spells and rest to avoid dying an early death.
