  • rescue volo bg3 wiki guide
    Volo can be found in Shattered Sanctum, you can use the psionic power the convince the goblin to release him. Or pass the deception (10)/intimidation check to do so.
  • You can meet Volo in the Camp after you saved him.
  • If you let him examine you, he'll confirm that there is indeed a parasite in your head. Volo will ask for some time to refresh his memory and then work on the parasite the following day. The next time you return to Volo after sleeping at the camp, he'll be prepared to try and remove the parasite. If you really let Volo try his method, he will knock out one of your eyes and give you a permanent debuff.
  • Volo may give you a fake eye to wear, it removes the debuff and grants See Invisibility as permanent buff.
  • If you want the fake eye buff without losing any approval from Karlach, Lae’zel or Shadowheart, simply put them in your party before talking to Volo, then exit camp. Separate yourself from them (on the party portrait area, yank yourself out of the group) and then return to camp without them. Ask Volo to try and remove your eye and you should not lose approval from them.


 How to unlock Rescue Volo

      You have to throw a invisible potion on him if he is waiting for the coast to be clear. Otherwise, the goblin will turn hostile.

        I let Volo to try to extract the parasite, lost the eye, and he gave me the artificial eye, which gives permanent perk "see the invisible"!
        Is it possible that the end result is random or depends on some previous answers or maybe a race, or a class?

          saved him from the camp, he appeared at the celebration in the camp, i talked to him the quest is still not finished wonder if this is a bug

          • the permanent debuff now can be healed with the eye that Volo gives you. If you wear the new fake eye, you will have no debuff but it will change your abbilities with +1 Charisma and -1 Intelligence (Patch 5)
