After reaching the Ramazith’s Tower in Baldur’s Gate 3, you will learn that it is inaccessible because of an Arcane Barrier. It essentially prevents you from getting a handful of useful items found inside. However, to get there, you will first need to get rid of the Arcane Barrier. In this guide, we have detailed everything you need to know about removing the Arcane Barrier in Baldur’s Gate 3.

Encounter the barrier during the Auntie Ethel side quest. Interact with Auntie Ethel and Mayrina as the story unfolds, involving multiple rescues of Mayrina. Overcome Ethel, either by causing her to fall from the zone’s middle or using other strategies. Essential for passing through the barrier after defeating Auntie Ethel.

Always save before attempting to disable the barrier. Use the potion to reveal levers that can disable the barrier. Successfully pass an Intelligence check (DC 20) to disable the barrier.
