The sinister House of Hope is one of the most intriguing locations you’ll uncover through Baldur’s Gate 3. Nestled in the fiery reaches of Avernus, this foreboding estate is home to the cambion Raphael, who has captured the soul of a woman named Hope to subject her to endless torture. This guide will explain entering and opening the portal in House Of Hope in Baldur’s Gate (BG3).
House of Hope and Portal Location in BG3
The House of Hope in Baldur’s Gate 3 contains many valuable and powerful items, but entering it requires a ritual. To find the items for the ritual, investigate the second floor of the Devil’s Fee.
Helski’s shop contains all the rare components needed to cast powerful spells. However, she charges exorbitant prices – up to 20,000 gold for a full set. While you could negotiate the price down or steal your money back, there is an alternative method to get the ingredients you need:
- Go to the second floor of Helski’s shop. Here you will find chests containing all of the necessary spell components. You’ll need high lockpicking skills to open them, though.
- Locate the chest containing the Infernal Marble. This is the rarest and most valuable component.
- Take the Infernal Marble and go back downstairs. Offer to trade it to Helski for the rest of the components you need. She will likely accept this deal.
How to Open the Portal in Baldur’s Gate 3?
With the five ritual ingredients (Diamond, Skull, Infernal Marble, Coin of Mammon, Incense) in hand, return to Helsik for instructions for performing the ritual, which will open a portal to the House of Hope.
- Put the skull at the point of the star, next to the arrow.
- Going clockwise, place the Coin of Mammon to the right of the skull.
- Place the diamond in the next space after moving forward one space clockwise.
- As you move clockwise, place the incense in the next location.
- Finally, place the Infernal Marble in the center of the star.
Ensure the altar is at the top of your screen, with the door on the opposite side at the bottom. This angle will make the ritual order easier. The ingredients will light up as you place them correctly. Once all five are in position, the portal to the House of Hope will open.
