How To Help Pandirna In Baldur’s Gate 3

Help the disabled watch girl to finally steal the rat's treasure in Baldur's Gate 3.

Pandirna is a Tiefling NPC in Baldur’s Gate 3 who has been relegated to guard duties due to her paralysis. Of all the unique characters you meet during Act 1, she is the most innocent, looking only for a cure to join the fight against goblins. Her interaction is also limited to this act in Baldur’s Gate 3, and you won’t meet her again in Act 2.

In this guide, we will tell you how to earn Pandirna’s trust by healing her and stealing the treasure without her knowing. This is easier said than done, as she likes to shout a lot. Just follow our guide to have the best possible outcome.

Pandirna location in Baldur’s Gate 3

Pandirna is in a storage shack at the northern end of Druid Grove, at the coordinates (X: 212, Y: 580). This shack is on the farthest end of the road leading to the market in the Hollow. The door to the shack is locked and can be opened using a lockpick (which requires passing a Dexterity check) or by using the knock spell.

This area is littered with Tiefling guards. Ensure you are not caught, as it can make everyone in the region hostile.

Another way to find this shack is to talk to a mouse running between Dammon and Auntie Ethel’s shop. Once you help it with its dilemma, it will take you directly to the store’s shack. It wants you to go in and collect Rat’s treasure.

How to heal Pandirna in Baldur’s Gate 3 

As soon as you enter the shack, a cutscene will start. Pandirna will be extremely agitated, and you can pass a perception check to realize something is wrong with her. You will get the following dialogue options at this point.

  • I am just looking around.
  • [Insight] Study her face.
  • [Persuasion] I am here to help.
  • [Deception] I have been placed in charge of this area.
  • [Intimidation] One more word, and I will snap your neck. 
  • Attack.

If you choose the first or the last option, Pandirna will ask you to leave immediately and start shouting for help. Passing the Intimidation check will instantly stop the conversation. Insight, Persuasion, and Deception checks will calm her down, and she will let you stay. However, she will strictly forbid you from touching anything.


Shutting the door close as soon as you enter the shack will save you from getting caught. Even if Pandirna calls for guards, they won’t hear her voice.

Pandirna will tell you that she drank one of Auntie Ethel’s potions to become powerful. The potion made her tough and robust but paralyzed her legs, and now she cannot stand up. That is why she is sitting there looking after the supplies.

You can heal Pandirna’s legs by casting the Lesser Restoration spell on her. Shadowheart has access to this level 2 spell and can use it to fix Pandirna. As soon as she gets on her legs, she will thank you and allow you to stay in the shed without stealing anything.

To steal Rat’s treasure, sneak behind her and open the chest with a lockpick. You will get a Bloodstone, gold, and the Cabinet key. You can use this key to open the Elminster cabinet (to the left of Pandirna) in the same area to collect some unique poisons.

Should you heal Pandirna in Baldur’s Gate 3?

The only answer to this moral dilemma is Yes. She is an innocent Tiefling whom the hag has deceived. She is non-hostile towards the party and just wants to do her job.

If you play as a Dark Urge, you will get the unique dialogue option after introducing yourself to Pandirna. Selecting the first dialogue option will result in you killing Pandirna off-screen. Astarion will approve of this action, while the rest of your party will disapprove.
