In Sorcerous Sundries, you meet with Lorroakan, a Wizard searching for the Nightsong. After you deal with him, you have plenty of time to explore his tower, including taking a legendary staff from him. Here’s how to get past the Arcane Barriers in Ramazith’s Tower in Baldur’s Gate 3 and grab Markoheshkir and the Robe of the Weave.

How to Get Past the Arcane Barriers in Ramazith’s Tower in Baldur’s Gate 3

Unfortunately, part of opening the Arcane Barrier requires luck in the form of a skill check. Make sure you bring a character with high Intelligence with you to get any rewards.

Arcane Barriers’ Location

To get to Ramazith’s Tower, use the white portal on the second floor of Sorcerous Sundries. The plaque says that Nightsong is an immortal being, which we know is true after Act 2. You can find and open the Arcane Barriers while Lorroakan is still alive. Just hop down to the lower level and use the Weave Button with a plaque that says “Below.”

This takes you to a platform with two Arcane Barriers. One has the Robe of the Weave and the other has Markoheshkir. The levers are invisible, so you need to use a potion or spell to see them. Or if you have Volo’s Ersatz Eye like me, they’ll appear when you arrive from the permanent See Invisibility effect.

Dispelling the Arcane Barriers

Use your high Intelligence character to interact with the levers. An Intelligence Skill Check with a DC 20 pops up, and you want to use Guidance and other bonuses if they’re available. If you fail the check, you’re locked out of trying again, making it impossible to get the item in the barrier. Alternatively, you can use Inspiration to reroll if you fail. Then, take the robe and staff as your prizes.
