Should You Resurrect Mayrina’s Husband In Baldur’s Gate 3

Let the obedient zombie roam the earth in Baldur's Gate 3.

Mayrina is a unique NPC with her own questline in Baldur’s Gate 3. She lost her husband, and out of grief, she approached Auntie Ethel, who promised to resurrect him. This is where things went wrong for the poor girl.

In this guide, we will examine how you can save Mayrina and resurrect her dead husband in Baldur’s Gate 3. Before venturing, ensure you are aptly prepared, as this will lead to a couple of difficult fights.

How to find Mayrina and Auntie Ethel?

The Riverside Teahouse, Auntie Ethel’s abode, lies Southwest of the Blighted Village. This area is full of Putrid Bog. As you reach there, you will notice four red caps patrolling the area. It will be better if you defeat them here.

Now make your way to the Riverside Teahouse, where Auntie Ethel will force Mayrina to eat. If you find the dead bodies of Mayrina’s brothers on the way, you can tell her about them. This will make her angry, and Auntie Ethel will teleport her away. She will also run away after turning into a hag.

Interact with the fireplace to pass it, as it is an illusion. Make your way through the Overgrown Tunnel until you reach Auntie Ethel’s place. She will put Mayrina in a cage and set it on fire. You must save Mayrina and kill Auntie Ethel.

Connor (Mayrina’s Husband) Location in Baldur’s Gate 3

Whether you kill her or let her go is totally up to you. However, after the fight, you can enter her room. Press the Alt button to locate a wand known as “Bitter Divorce”. The word Connor is engraved on the wand. Ethel uniquely crafted this wand to resurrect Mayrina’s dead husband in exchange for Mayrina’s baby.

You will spawn in the bog by using the teleportation circle (mushroom circle) in Auntie Ethel’s room. You will also find Mayrina crying nearby over her dead husband’s coffin. Tell Mayrina that you can resurrect her husband using the wand.

Should you resurrect Mayrina’s husband in Baldur’s Gate 3?

After you acquire the Bitter Divorce wand and talk to Mayrina near her husband’s coffin, you get two options.

  • Break the wand.
  • Use it to resurrect Connor.

The first one will enrage Mayrina, and this will be the last time you see her. This is a bad outcome, and we don’t recommend it. If you resurrect Connor, you once again have two choices.

  • Keep the wand and control Connor.
  • Give Mayrina the wand.

As Connor comes back to life as a zombie, he only follows the person who has the Bitter Divorce wand. If you decide to keep it, you can summon him as an ally during fights once per long rest. This will again make Mayrina angry.

The best solution is to resurrect Mayrina’s husband and give the wand to her. She will use it to take Connor with him to Baldur’s Gate in search of a remedy and you will get another side quest later in Act 3.
