Where to find Benryn and Mirileth’s dowry in Baldur’s Gate 3

Fetch quests are quite played out in RPGs, but Baldur’s Gate 3 manages to put a unique spin on the tired old formula in the “Rescue the Trapped Man” quest. Starting the quest is easy enough, but the goal of finding the lost dowry itself can feel as daunting as finding a needle in a haystack. There are several ways you can go about getting clues to help you find the missing valuables, however, not all of them will be obvious or available to your character depending on their class and abilities. To finally put this mystery to bed and recover the lost treasure for a troubled man — or keep it for yourself — here’s where to find Mirileth’s Dowry in Baldur’s Gate 3.

This quest begins by finding the man named Benryn in Waukeen’s Rest, which is notably ablaze when you arrive. He is inside the house closest to the fast travel point, and trapped under a large wooden log. Pass either an Intelligence or Strength check to lead him out of the fire and save his life. Even though you saved him, Benryn will have another favor to ask you, which is to locate his wife, Mirileth. The two had an argument about the dowry and he doesn’t know where it is. Unfortunately, finding Mirileth won’t help much as she has passed away, so you now have to find the dowry yourself.

If you have the ability to speak to the dead, simply asking Mirileth is the easiest way to learn the dowry’s location, but if not, you can still find it. You’ll need to go into the barn behind the couple’s house and check the haystack. If you didn’t talk to Mirileth, you will need to pass a perception check to notice the dowry. Find the ring and either keep it to sell for some Gold or return it to Benryn and complete the quest.

The best weapons in Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 3
A soldier standing in an armory.

To the layman, every gun in Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 3 probably seems the same. They all shoot bullets, right? In reality, that couldn't be further from the truth. Even when you take player skill out of the equation, each gun has vastly different stats and applications that make some, even within their own category, just plain better choices for everyone. Each gun is broken down into various stats, including recoil, ADS speed, damage, and much more, which makes it hard to easily compare them. When you factor in just how many guns are available as you level up and keep unlocking more, the prospect of picking the best ones becomes overwhelming. If you're trying to build the ideal loadout to dominate the current meta, these are the best weapons in Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 3 for each weapon type.

We will detail the top picks per each class, and then list the rest in terms of how they rank.

Baldur’s Gate 3 Patch 5 adds new modes that can make the game easier or harder
Minthara in Baldur's Gate 3.

The fifth major patch for Baldur's Gate 3 just dropped. It's a literal game-changing patch, as it adds a new (extremely difficult) Honour Mode and a Custom Mode that will allow players to customize the difficulty of their adventure.

Honour Mode is essentially a hardcore version for Baldur's Gate 3. It disables save scumming, removes some exploits, increases the difficulty in combat and conversation, and implements a new Legendary Action system to the game's boss fights. Players technically only have one life to beat Honour Mode with, as they'll be presented with stats from their perilous journey and forced to disable the Honour Mode difficulty additions if they die at any point. Those who make it all the way through will get a Golden D20 in-game.
