How to Save Vanra in Baldur’s Gate 3

There are two ways to save Vanra from the hag that is Auntie Ethel in Baldur’s Gate 3 or BG3. The first one is to concoct the Hag’s Bane potion. Once you’re in Baldur’s Gate, head to the south of the city and find a spooky-looking house close to the docks (Old Garlow’s Place). Inside, you’ll find a doll on which you’ll have to cast the Break Curse spell. Then you’ll have to fight some of Ethel’s lackeys. You’ll then be able to open the wall safe. It’s literally on the actual wall near the desk on the first floor. Inside, you’ll find the recipe for the potion and a Fey Flower. Brew the potion (more details on all of that in our separate Hag’s Bane guide). Then, when you get to the fight against Ethel in the Blushing Mermaid cellar, throw the potion at her.

And there you go, that’s how you save Vanra from the hag in BG3 or Baldur’s Gate 3. You need to destroy the three big blue mushrooms in the arena to prevent Ethel from healing. Point is, if you hit her with the potion, she will regurgitate Vanra and the child will be safe. If you don’t have the potion, go to the Passives part of the action bar and toggle your attacks to non-lethal. It’s the icon of a helmet being hit by a mallet. Once that’s turned on, just use your basic melee attacks until the hag falls unconscious. You can then interact with her body to safely cut Vanra out of the stomach. However you pull it off, you’ll get a Legendary Rapier for your troubles.
