Auntie Ethel can be a mini-boss or a vendor, depending on the choices you make on her quest. Here, we will discuss all of her potion effects in the game.

Baldur’s Gate 3 is one of the biggest RPGs released in the year. The game has a core ruleset based on the Dungeon and Dargon 5th edition. And it tries to give players as much freedom of choice as possible, just like a DnD session. So you will be making big or small choices all the time in Baldur’s Gate 3.

The game has some story-rich sidequests, too. One of them is the Auntie Ethel’s quest. You will find her getting attacked by two men because she supposedly kidnapped their sister. From here on, you can follow through the quest by making various choices along the way. After her quest, you will get access to the potions she keeps in her back room. Here, we will discuss all the effects of these potions.
