How to Find Withers and Respec in Baldur’s Gate 3

Withers can be found at your camp after you have progressed in the game or you can fast-track Withers appearing by finding him in the final section of the Dank Crypt dungeon. After you speak to Withers, he will make show up at your camp and will remain there.

If you are struggling to find Withers in your camp, he looks a bit like a zombie and I think also akin to a Draugr from Skyrim — if you have played through that. To Respec, simply speak to Withers and pay the 100 gold pieces fee to begin. After you pay up, you can Respec your character and change your class, ability setup, spells, and anything else you desire from the menu. You can respec throughout the game whenever you feel like it.
