Baldur’s Gate 3: How to Complete Help the Hag Survivors in BG3

There are people who have survived hags in Baldur's Gate 3, and this guide shows you how to complete Help the Hag Survivors quest.

All different types of monsters are lurking in Baldur’s Gate 3. One deadly creature is known as the Hag. And while exploring Baldur’s Gate, there’s a poster you can find that talks about the Hag Survivors.

You can find the poster at the Basilisk Gate in the Lower Cities. Here’s how to complete Help the Hag Survivors and find Adrielle in BG3.

How to Start the Quest Help the Hag Survivors in BG3

You’ll first get the chance to start this quest once you enter the Lower City in Act 3. You’ll need to interact with the Anti-Hag Support Group poster at coordinates (X:125, Y:-70). This will start the quest and send you to the Barren’s Coop at coordinates (X:45, Y:-114).

You can also find the poster close to the Felogyr’s Fireworks building, which is also close to Sorcerous Sundries.

Once you’ve started the second part of the quest, you’ll need to make your way to another part of the city, Barren’s Coop. However, when you arrive, the building will be locked. You’ll need to use a Lockpicking Kit to get inside.

Immediately when you arrive inside, your Baldur’s Gate 3 group will likely all roll Perception checks, and they’ll notice a letter to the right of the entrance. When reading it, you’ll discover that everyone on the premise has been evicted, to the variety of wild events that have taken place on the property. You can do a bit more snooping around by checking out the table to the left of the entrance, and there’s a second letter that talks about the next location the group can choose to live at Old Garlow’s Place.

The location in the letter will be to the east of you, to the southeast of Sorcerous Sundries. When you arrive, similar to the previous house, the door will be locked, and you’ll need someone in your Baldur’s Gate 3 group to pick open the lock with a Sleight of Hand check to get inside.

When you arrive at the house, there’s a small meeting at the center with several survivors of the hag, and Adrielle is protecting them. I picked my character to introduce themselves to the group and assure them I would not harm them.

Unfortunately, Adrielle, the Cleric, and the group attempted to attack my Baldur’s Gate 3 party, and we had to roll a Persuasion check to convince them we were not there to harm anyone. Unfortunately, we failed and got into combat with them. However, after attacking Jatlo, he turned out to be a Red Cap, and we had to fight against him.

Speaking With Mayrina in Baldur’s Gate 3 – How to Get Hag’s Bane

After dispatching the disguised Red Cap, Jatlo, the sheep on the second floor, turns back into Mayrina, the original victim of Auntie Ethel in Act 1. Speak with her, and she’ll share that she’s joined this group to help hunt down a Hag who is in the city. She enlists your help to go after Auntie Ethel if you have not already and wishes you to assist them in Baldur’s Gate 3.

As a bonus, Mayrina has been doing her homework on how to deal with Hags, and there’s a safe you can loot to acquire several useful weapons to fight against Ethel, notably a recipe called Hag’s Bane, which is what you’ll need to use against Auntie Ethel in your next encounter. You can find the entrance to Mayrina’s reward next to the stairs inside the house.

You need to make sure that someone in your Baldur’s Gate 3 group reads the book “The Hag’s Bane” to unlock the Hag’s Bane recipe. You can now use it any time during your playthrough, and you’re going to need it in your future fight against Auntie Ethel in Baldur’s Gate 3

Help the Hag Quest Bug

Some players are reporting a bug with Help the Hag Survivors quest. The bug happens after killing Ethel and returning back to the group. Once you tell the survivors they are free, the quest will stay open under the bug. As of now, we haven’t found a proper fix for this bug and it hasn’t been officially fixed yet. Our best advice is to simply reload the game and try to close the quest again.

Auntie Ethel is a viciously cruel old hag of a monster that must go down at all costs. Check out our guide on how to defeat Auntie Ethel here.
