Should you kill the Dream Visitor in Baldur’s Gate 3?

While completing Lae’zel’s personal mission in Baldur’s Gate 3, she’ll ask you to help her find the Githyanki and ask for their help to remove the tadpole.

You’ll find out soon enough that inside the Planecaster awaits the Dream Visitor that you already know and you’ll get the option to kill them for good. If you decide to kill the Guardian, they’ll just heal themselves and get upset that you believed Vlaakith’s lies.

The Guardian will also tell you that the Githyaki queen was planning to kill them and then betray you by going after you and your party at camp.
