Mayrina is a woman you can save from Auntie Ethel in Baldur’s Gate 3. Ethel is a hag who makes poor, magical deals with people and feeds off their torment for her delight. After you beat Ethel, you’ll save Mayrina. However, Mayrina did not want to be saved. She was trying to revive her husband.
While exploring Ethel’s cave after beating her, you can find a wand with Mayrina husband’s name on it, Conner. You can then find Mayrina crying outside of Ehtel’s hut with her dead husband. You’ll have the choice to revive Mayrina’s husband or leave her to continue crying. Should you revive Mayrina’s husband Conner and give her the wand in Baldur’s Gate 3? Here is everything you need to know.
What Happens When You Revive Mayrina’s Husband in Baldur’s Gate 3?
You can find the wand to revive Mayrina’s husband in the Acrid Workshop in Baldur’s Gate 3. The item will say Bitter Divorce. This is part of the Save Mayrina quest and will end when you decide how to handle her husband. You need to do this after beating Auntie Ethel.
After you have it, return outside Ethel’s house and make your way to the fairy circle on the right side of the workshop. You’ll appear next to Mayrina, and you can immediately tell her about the wand you found with her husband’s name on it.
After telling Mayrina about the wand there will be the choice to revive her husband or break the wand in two. For this decision, I decided to use the wand, and my Baldur’s Gate 3 party watched as I reunited Mayrina with her still undead husband.
After you use the wand on Conner, he comes back to life, but not in the way that Mayrina wanted. He’s an undead creature in Baldur’s Gate 3, and he’s bound to obey the person who has the wand. After reviving him, you can choose to kill the abomination or keep the wand for yourself. However, Mayrina will want to keep him and swears that she’ll find a cure for Conner in Baldur’s Gate.
Unfortunately, this means you’ll need to find out what happens when you reach Baldur’s Gate to see if Mayrina can find a cure for her husband or if he’s going to end up this way forever. This will occur later in the campaign, but the alternative of not reviving her husband prevents her from being mad at you.
What Happens When You Don’t Revive Mayrina’s Husband in Baldur’s Gate 3?
The alternative choice is for you not to revive Mayrina’s husband. The way I did it was I showed Mayrina that I had the wand, and then I broke it in front of her. It was the quickest way to complete the Baldur’s Gate 3 quest and get experience. The outcome is Mayrina runs away, likely back to Baldur’s Gate, to take care of her child. This is the crueler method to complete the quest, but it could be for the best because she doesn’t have a zombie with her attached to a wand.
I can report that I did encounter Mayrina while exploring Baldur’s Gate when I finally arrived at the city during Act 3. For my playthrough, my Baldur’s Gate 3 group decided to revive Mayrina’s husband so the two could remain together. After she ran away, she gathered up her allies, worked together to create a Hag Survival group, and went out of their way to target Auntie Ethel and the other hags of the world. I did see that Mayrina’s husband was still a zombie, but he had not harmed her, and it might have been for the best to get on her good side during this portion of the game.
