How To Wake The Sleeping Bear In Ori And The Will Of The Wisps
Baur the bear blocks your path in Baur’s Reach. In this guide on How To Wake The Sleeping Bear In Ori And The Will Of The Wisps we’ll tell you how you can wake the bear from its slumber by using an ability you unlock during the story progression in Ori.

Baur’s Reach is North of Wellspring Glade. It is not an optional area, it’s one of the areas that holds one of the Wisps that Ori must unite so he can progress through the main adventure. It’s possible to wake Baur at many points as the game let’s you decide which areas to explore first but before you can wake the bear up, you first need to progress far enough into the story to unlock a special ability.

At the very beginning of the game you may recall Ori’s Glide ability. This ability, endowed by a special leaf, allows Ori to glide. Unfortunately, Ori loses this ability very early in the adventure and must reclaim it later before he can wake Baur the bear.

Follow the main story until you reach the Silent Woods. Avoiding any spoilers, this is quite an important part of the main story and once completed, you will have once again unlocked Glide. You should also unlock another ability, although you have to complete Luma Pools first, that lets you use the leaf to push things. This works on enemies, bubbles, lots of the environment to allow you to reach new areas.

You need to bind Flap to one of your ability keys and then use the leaf to blow air at the bear. This will wake him and allow you to progress into Baur’s Reach.
