BG3 Cure Yourself Vs Cure Lae’zel (Githyanki Zaith’isk)

Can the Githyanki Zaith'isk device cure Lae'zel or yourself in BG3? Check out our guide to find out if you should cure yourself or cure Lae'zel using the Githyanki Zaith'isk Creche.

While finding the cure to remove the parasite, you must choose to cure yourself or Lae’zel in Baldur’s Gate 3 using the Githyanki Zaith’isk creche. As you progress with the Find a Cure quest, Ghustil Stornugoss, a Githyanki healer, implies that sitting in the Zaith’isk device can extract the parasites. Even though it looks dangerous, Lae’zel volunteers to be cured first due to her Githyanki birth and strong roots. But should you cure yourself or cure Lae’zel in BG3 with the Githyanki Zaith’isk device? And what are the consequences of either choice? Check out our guide to find out the correct choice between curing yourself and curing Lae’zel.

Cure Yourself Vs Lae’zel in Baldur’s Gate 3 (Githyanki Zaith’isk Creche)

Rather than curing Lae’zel, curing yourself in Baldur’s Gate 3 with the Githyanki Zaith’isk creche is a better option. That’s because you gain an Awakened buff using the best Illithid powers. But if you choose to cure Lae’zel in BG3, she will get a Zaith’isk debuff decreasing three of her random stats for the rest of the game.

Cutting to the chase, the Githyanki Zaith’isk creche will fail to cure and extract the Parasite in BG3 despite whoever sits, first. While Lae’zel will be a bit feisty, you will gain her approval even if you decide to cure yourself by going first. For that, choose the “You would be hunting for this place without my guidance. I will be cured first” option. Likewise, you instantly gain approval from Lae’zel if you allow her to use the Githyanki Zaith’isk creche.

Soon as you or Lae’zel use the Zaith’isk device, you will be warned by the Dream Visitor to get out. At this point, you have three attempts to remove yourself or Lae’zel from the machine. If you chose to cure Lae’zel, you must succeed a DC30 check to save her from dying due to the Zaith’isk. Luckily, if you opted to cure yourself, it requires only DC21 Arcana check to get out of the machine. In the end, the machine will destruct failing to cure the parasite stuck inside your or Lae’zel’s head in Baldur’s Gate 3.

But as many players want to gain Lae’zel’s approval, we recommend supporting her when she sits in the Zaith’isk device.

So, here are all the dialogue options that gain and raise her approval:

  • Endure, Lae’zel. the cure is worth the torment.
  • Keep focused, Lae’zel. The cure is close.
  • Embrace the pain, Lae’zel. Be pure.

Since neither option cures you or Lae’zel, we recommend Save Scumming as a priority. Since many might fail in a 30-dice roll, improvising and exploring more outcomes is more suitable. So, we leave the rest of the decision to you.
