BG3 Sussur Bloom: How To Get & Use

Learn all about the rare anti-magic Sussur Bloom flower in Baldur's Gate 3 (BG3).

While found only in the Underdark, Sussur Bloom in Baldur’s Gate 3 has many uses. Being a translucent blue flower that blossoms from Sussur Tree, it can create an Antimagic field that nullifies magic within a certain radius. But since sunlight exposure or taking it away from the Underdark wilts it away, many players are confused about its uses.

Is there a way to take Sussur Blooms to your camp? Yes, there is. For those seeking to suppress arcane forces, few substances are more valuable than this rare flower. This guide will cover everything you need to know about Sussur Bloom in BG3.

How Does a Sussur Bloom Work in Baldur’s Gate 3?

Baldur's Gate: How to Find Sussur Bloom in BG3

The Sussur Bloom is a special flower that creates an anti-magic field. This field suppresses all magic – it stops spells, rituals, concentration, effects and dampens the abilities of magical creatures. The anti-magic zone is limited in range, though.

You can use the Sussur Bloom in BG3 to power up the Arcane Tower generator and get past the Arcane Turrets. As you explore the Arcane Tower, you can also use it to deactivate Constructs like Bernard. Unless you remove or place it away from the radius, the constructs cannot move from their position. But since the flower creates an Anti-magic aura, your MC and party members cannot cast spells as well. So, ensure that you are away from the radius and use long-range attacks to deal damage to your enemies.

What to Do With Sussur Bloom in BG3?

Players can use Sussur Bloom’s magic-negating properties for various tactical purposes. The flower has its limits but can be useful if utilized creatively. Rather than using them with magic users, we recommend using them with a Barbarian, Monk, or Fighter.

  • Once you place the Sussur flowers, neither your enemies nor your party members and MC can use any magic. So, ensure that the spell-casters are not inside the radius of the Sussur Bloom.
  • Any casted Concentration spells will lose their effect if within the radius of the flower.
  • The enemy spell-casters or constructs receive more damage when they are close to the Sussur flowers.

All BG3 Sussur Bloom Locations

Sussur Bloom is a rare flower that can be tricky to find, but there are two reliable spots:

  • Sussur Tree on the West Side of the Underdark: The most bountiful source is the massive Sussur Tree located on the western edge of the Underdark. This ancient plant practically overflows with precious blooms. However, reaching it requires braving Hook Horrors and likely being level 5 or more, so come prepared for a fight. You will also find Filro the Forgotten guarding the tree.
  • Near the Arcane Tower: For an easier grab, check the garden area outside the Arcane Tower in the southwest Underdark. While only housing a couple of flowers, this tree can provide what you need without the big battle.

One important thing to note when harvesting Sussur Blooms is their powerful anti-magic aura. Getting too close to one of these flowers will suppress any magic abilities, preventing spellcasters from using their spells and special skills. This can seriously debilitate your party if you’re unprepared.

Can you Carry Sussur Blooms?

Yes, you can carry Sussur Blooms in Baldur’s Gate 3 to your camp out of the Underdark or Arcane Tower. Instead of storing them in your Inventory, you must place them inside a Pouch, chest, or backpack. If you send them to your camp or take them to the surface world, the flowers will wither away.

As a result, you will find the Wilted Petals rather than the Sussur Bloom in your Inventory. So, if you want to use these rare Sussur flowers to your advantage or Strat, put them in your Pouch or chest.
