How to Get the Strength Buff from Araj Oblodra in Act 2
Araj Oblodra is particularly interested in Astarion and immediately recognizes him as a vampire spawn. Since it is her dream to be bitten by a vampire, she asks Astarion if he could bite her, which he denies.
- If you choose that he is his own person and doesn’t have to do anything he would rather not do, you will get a cute camp scene with Astarion.
You can also persuade Astarion to drink the blood of Araj Oblodra, whereupon he will vomit, but you will receive the potion that will permanently give you more strength. You can give this potion to your character or another companion in your camp to increase their strength.
Good to know: Araj Oblodra will brew a potion especially for you in exchange for a drop of your blood.
