The price of the service DOES NOT increase during the course of the game, nor if you use it frequently.

Any character can interact with Withers to Respec, even your Companions, if they pay the asking price. Note that respecing a character does not change its interactions or Quests.

Withers Dialogue Options

You will find him inside a Richly Adorned Sarcophagus at Dank Crypt as you progress through Explore the Ruins. View the quest page if you are having trouble reaching Withers. Interact with the Sarcophagus to wake him up. This will begin a cutscene & dialogue. After he wakes up, you can interact with him. He will ask you, What is the worth of a single mortal's life?

  1. Quite the question. What's the reason for it? 
  2. So he has spoken'? What 'he' are you talking about?
  3. Little spooked by the crawling out of the tomb but. What are you?
  4. A peaceful undead. Interesting. Why aren't you attacking me?
  5. Attack. 
  • Choose any question option and he will circle back and ask if you will answer his previous question. 
  • If you choose to Attack Withers, he will not engage in Combat and will still show up at Camp and provided you with his services. 

You have the following responses available for his question: 

  1. Yes. Ask away. 
  2. I don't owe you answers.
  3. Attack.
  4. Leave.

He will ask again. Finally, you can respond with the following:

  1. No one life is worth more than any other. We are all equal.
  2. That depends on a person's deeds.
  3. Life's only value is as currency. Doesn't matter to me otherwise.
  4. Each life is of infinite value and merits sacrificing everything for.
  5. The only life that matters is mine. 
  6. Depends on the mortal. 
  7. [Dark Urge two additional dialogue options]
    1. Mortals live to die. To be slaughtered.
    2. Mine seems worth little, as my blood calls me to harm others.
  8. [Racial] (The answer given here depends upon the player's race or subrace.) 
    1. [Elf] Some mortals live much longer than others. I can't compare them.
    2. [Lolth-Sworn Drow] Life only has value where Lolth decrees it.

There is no wrong answer here. After you respond, he will be satisfied with your answer and bid you farewell after stating that you will meet again. He will then walk away. You can choose to follow him and interact with him again to engage in a short dialogue. After this, he can be found later in the camp, where he provides a resurrection service for 200 GP along with his other services.


Withers Dialogue Outcomes

  • Though Withers will be more pleased with some responses more than others, there are no wrong answers during this interaction. 
  • If you attempt to attack him, no Combat interaction will be triggered and it will not affect the outcome.

      According to datamined notes, Wither's isn't an avatar or representation, he is the actual Jergal himself. And apparently, he's helping the player party by the will of Helm, as atonement for the creation of the Dead Three.

        You can pickpocket him in camp for gold you spent. 400g have dc 21.

        Just dont leave too much money in his pockets if you want to do this

        • Dude has 1900 gold on him and doesn't respond at all to failed Pickpocket checks. The DC of the check seems to be 30, though, so you'll need a hefty bonus to Sleight of Hand checks just to be able to succeed at all, baring a Nat 20.

            Withers also appears in Act 3 after fighting Orin in solo combat if you're the Dark Urge and have resisted the Urge, Bhaal kills you and Withers resurrects you. He talks about your courage for standing before Bhaal and defying him. He mentions that he is does not ordinarily interfere with mortals, that he knew you were a Bhaalspawn the whole time and never mentioned it because that was interfering. However, due to your actions for defying Bhaal, and resisting the Urge, you have become extraordinary and thus this makes it an extraordinary situation which he felt merited to interfere this time to ressurect you. There's a fair amount of dialog from Withers in this scene, it's very interesting.

              Is it normal that he just left my camp after tiefling party? I'm already going to adamantite forge but he is still noowhere to be seen. Checked every possible camp

              • Anonymous

                Did you guys see the post credit scene? Is he Jergal or Ao? He sure talked liked a superior to the dead three...

                • Anonymous

                  You can steal gold paid to him back without consequences (it seems) even when failing multiple times to get it. Handy!

                    Why does it say withers is a skeleton? If you tell him that skeletons cannot talk, he will agree (Refusing to elaborate further)
                    Besides, his looks, his proficiency with necromancy, as well as his confusing ability to CASUALLY undo: pacts, oaths, etc. Screams LICH, not skeleton.

                      FYI: You dont need to pick him up in the ruins, he just spawns in your camp out of nowhere after progressing through the story

                        Didn't talk to him when I was in Dank Crypt. Not sure how he showed up in the camp but I can confirm he did lol

                          He didn't appear in the crypt or showed up in the camp. The quest shows it is still in progress, but I already opened the sarcophagus.

                          I heard there's a bug concerning that. Is there any possibility to avoid creating a completely new save game?

                            there is a moment where he left the camp just before act 3.
                            But for me i can't speak with him anymore in act3 and can't change class too. Anyone know how to change class in act 3 if i can't speak with hium anymore?

                              He seems to be satisfied with any answer. I chose 'All lives are infinitely valuable' and he was satisfied.

                                He appeared at my camp after i spoke to him, he's some kind of necromancer, still no idea what he does. He'll charge 200 gold for his act, at first i thought he'd raise dead party members, I'll have to work on what he does.
