Wondering how to wake up Dairow Vin in Baldur's Gate 3? At some point in Act 2, you may notice a Tiefling sleeping in the sewers near the Illithid outpost in the Underdark. A quick search will lead you to find a note revealing that cultists took his husband away and a mysterious sleeping potion inside his bag.
Considering the number of empty bottles surrounding the character, he likely drank sleep potions to cope with the grief of losing a loved one. However, is there a way to wake him up and perhaps help him for story purposes? Read on to find out.
How to Wake Up Dairow Vin in BG3
Dairow Vin is an unconscious NPC in the game, and waking him up isn’t as simple as healing, attacking, or pushing him. Even polymorphing him into a sheep does nothing to wake him up. He still transforms, of course, but the character is still unconscious for some reason.
However, there’s a way to bypass this. To wake up Dairow Vin, you must cast the Death Ward spell on him. This spell protects the target from instant death by capping their health to a certain point when they take damage. By casting Death Ward on Dairow Vin and then “killing” him, he will magically awaken as he resurrects.
However, once Dairow Vin wakes up, it is essential to note that you still cannot interact with him. He will not respond to any attempts at communication. Instead, you’ll find him spitting generic NPC lines, such as telling you to stop whatever you’re doing and yelling for help, followed by running away.
It is unclear why this seems to be the only working method for now. It could be an intentional gameplay design or a glitch that will be patched in future updates. Regardless, waking him up serves no significant purpose in the game at the moment.
