BG3 Duellist’s Prerogative Location

If you want to acquire the Duellist’s Prerogative, you must head to the Basilisk Gate Barracks first. Then, you must follow the events of the quest to Save Vanra during Act 3.

You will need to craft a hag’s bane and then take your time to investigate the Blushing Mermaid. Once you have performed this step, you will meet Captain Grizzly, whose real identity will be Auntie Ethel, i.e., the Hag.

After your confrontation with the Hag, she will disappear, so you must enter the basement. This way, you will discover The Hag’s lair underneath the Blushing Mermaid tavern in Baldur’s Gate 3.

You can confront Auntie Ethel at her Lair; she will have swallowed Vanra. To save Vanra from her, you can throw the Hag’s bane at the Hag, and she will vomit out Vanra. Then you will have to fight the Hag. Once you defeat Auntie Ethel, you can escort Vanra back to her mother, Lora. You must head to Lora’s House, east of the Stormshore Armoury.

Lora will be pleased that you brought Vanra back safe and sound to her. As a result of completing this particular quest, she will reward you with the Duellist’s Prerogative in Baldur’s Gate 3.
