To begin the Save Mayrina quest, players will first have to interact with her two brothers named Johl and Demir in Baldur’s Gate 3. You will come across them in the Sunlit Wetlands accusing Auntie Ethel of kidnapping their sister. Here, you will have to side in with them right as the hag will teleport away.

The hag will kill them off-screen, however, you can still go ahead and save Mayrina, and to do so here are the steps you can follow:

  1.  You will first come across Mayrina and Auntie Ethel at her residence, the Riverside Teahouse.
  2.  Once you find Mayrina, you can either tell her about her brothers being killed off by Auntie Ethel. She will call off the deal she made to resurrect her husband and face off against the hag.
  3. However, if you choose to not tell her, the hag will offer you her help to do with your Tadpole situation, and some of your companions won’t agree to it.
  4. Once you say no and try to face off against her, she will teleport Mayrina to someplace else.
  5. Although to move further, players will have to investigate the fireplace, where they will find the wall to be an illusion.

Another key thing to keep in mind if you fail to succeed in using the Control Orb, you can always use the level 1 transmutation spell Create Or Destroy Water to stop the fire.
