In the Arcane Tower of Baldur’s Gate 3 you will find a broken button. This guide will show you how to fix it.
Here’s the deal: The broken button in the Arcane Tower of Baldur’s Gate 3 is puzzling. Why, the viewer wonders aloud, is this large button actually located so close to the ground? And isn’t that a pretty strange place for a button that doesn’t even work? Well, there are answers to these questions.
Because after a little repair, this strange button is doing its job again, revealing its purpose. However, the dead switch cannot be revived using conventional measures. Learn what you need to do to find out the secret of the broken button in the Arcane Tower in this guide.
How to Fix the Button in the Arcane Tower of Baldur’s Gate 3
The first station of the “repair” of the button is on the spot in the Underrealm at the coordinates X: -42 Y: -206. There you will find an old, gloomy tombstone, with which you interact. The narrator then reads the inscription: “In memory of Myrna, a shining light in the darkness. May you forever gaze upon the lake in which you so loved to play.”
If the following automatic Arcane Client roll succeeds, you will notice that the tombstone in front of you is the work of the powerful Shape Stone spell, supposedly a waste for a tombstone. If you have a shovel with you, you can now dig the grave by option.
If you don’t have one in your pocket yet, leave the place and look around in the Underrealm for a shovel. You should have a chance to find one in the derelict settlement, among other places. After a moment, your excavation will reveal the skeleton of a large dog with a leather collar. The latter will lie on the ground and can be picked up.

Equip the dog collar. Well? Doesn’t the position of the button start to make sense? Exactly, so go back to the supposedly broken button in the Arcane Tower. If you now press the button again (while wearing the collar), dog food (or more precisely, a raw steak) will be dispensed. Pick it up.
Well, it would be natural to expect that this steak is part of a larger mystery, but that is not the case. The button serves or served the sole purpose of serving food to the Lord’s deceased dog. So, unfortunately, you won’t get more than a piece of meat for your efforts.
