How to Fix Arcane Tower Button Near Ground that Doesn’t Work in Baldur’s Gate 3

To fix the button that doesn’t work and is near the ground in the Arcane Tower in BG3 or Baldur’s Gate 3, you will need a special item. It’s not that the button is broken, you just don’t have what’s necessary to activate it. I’m talking about the button at the coordinates X: -25, Y: -272. Now, what you have to do is go all the way to the tip of the map south of the Sussur Tree waypoint. At the coordinates X: 41, Y: 209, you’ll find a grave. Dig it to obtain a dog collar engraved with magical runes. Equip it and go back to the button. Use the button, and poof, it will spawn a bunch of meat. That’s all it does. Well to be fair, it spawns infinite meat as long as you keep pushing the button.

And there you have it, that’s how you fix the button near the ground that doesn’t work in the Arcane Tower in Baldur’s Gate 3 or BG3. Is it worth the hassle? Debatable, though a free source of infinite food sure can come in handy. What we really have here is an effective bit of environmental storytelling. Whoever used to live in the Arcane Tower had a dog that they loved so much, they made a collar that would create food for their beloved pet at the push of a button. It’s honestly kinda touching. It doesn’t do much for you in terms of reward, aside from discovering a sweet little story.
