In the world of RPGs, fetch quests have become tired and overused. However, Baldur’s Gate 3 manages to breathe new life into this formula with the “Rescue the Trapped Man” quest. While embarking on this quest may seem straightforward, the task of finding Mirileth’s lost dowry can be as challenging as finding a needle in a haystack. Fortunately, there are a few methods to gather clues and locate the missing valuables.
The first step of the quest involves finding a man named Benryn in Waukeen’s Rest. As you arrive, you’ll notice that the area is on fire. Benryn can be found inside the house nearest to the fast travel point, trapped beneath a large wooden log. Leading him out of the fire requires passing an Intelligence or Strength check. Once saved, Benryn will ask for another favor: help him locate his wife, Mirileth. The couple had an argument regarding the dowry, and he needs assistance in finding it.
If your character has the ability to speak to the dead, asking Mirileth about the dowry’s location is the simplest route. However, if this skill is unavailable, the dowry can still be found. Head to the barn behind the couple’s house and search the haystack. If you didn’t speak to Mirileth, passing a perception check is necessary to spot the dowry. Once discovered, you have the choice to keep the ring and sell it for gold or return it to Benryn and complete the quest.
Baldur’s Gate 3 offers a refreshing take on the typical fetch quest incorporating unique twists and challenges. The “Rescue the Trapped Man” quest provides an engaging experience within the game’s immersive world.
