When you start out in Larian’s Dungeons and Dragons game, one of your first objectives is to find a way to remove a parasitic tadpole in your body. While on this mission, you may encounter the Baldur’s Gate 3 Zaith’isk power and get the opportunity to take it for yourself.

Since Baldur’s Gate 3 is set in a fantasy world, you can expect a lot of magical spells and flashy abilities like Divine Intervention. These skills are usually learned as you progress your character, but the Zaith’isk is a machine whose power can be taken at a certain point in the story.

So, should you take the Baldur’s Gate 3 Zaith’isk power? Let’s find out if it’s worth absorbing this device’s power for yourself. While you are here, also check out where to find Nym and Sorn.

How to Obtain the Zaith’isk Power

Obtaining the Zaith’isk power isn’t that easy, but it might be worth an attempt. Successfully acquiring the power for yourself will grant you the Awakened buff which lets you use your Illithid powers as a bonus action.

This buff is pretty solid if you plan on using your Illithid powers, otherwise, it’s negligible. It’s also worth mentioning that attempting to take the Zaith’isk power could lead to one of your party members getting permanent debuffs to some of their attributes.

To succeed in taking the Zaith’isk power, you’ll need to pass a 30 DC Arcana check. This is considerably difficult to pass and you only get one attempt at it unless you resort to save scumming.

Where Is the Zaith’isk?

The Zaith’isk is a machine found in the Creche Y’llek during a quest involving the Githyanki Creche quest. This machine will be used in an attempt to get rid of your parasite.

When you get to the Zaith’isk, you can choose who gets to sit in it first between Lae’zel and yourself. After choosing who goes first, the opportunity to take the Zaith’isk power will present itself among the several dialogue options that show up during the parasite removal attempt.

Then, there is a discussion on who will sit on the Zaith’isk’s seat. If you let Laez’el sit, you can still try and save her but it will take a 30 DC roll, so it is quite difficult to do so. If she gets the debuff, there’ll be no way to remove it later, so keep that in mind.

Should you choose to take the fall in her stead, she will look negatively at you but not a big deal. Also, you get a much lower 21 DC roll to save yourself, so it might be worth it to take the plunge. Keep in mind that this entire quest is optional, if you want you can skip it.

And that’s our guide on taking the Zaith’isk power in Baldur’s Gate 3. For more on the adventure game, check out how to talk to animals and how to change your dice.
