The world of Dungeons and Dragons is full of strange and mysterious things. In this guide, we’ll be focusing on the Baldur’s Gate 3 Mirror of Loss to find out where it’s located and how to use it.
With a name like Mirror of Loss, it’s hard not to get curious about what this item does. It’s not the only one with an intriguing name either since you can also find items such as the Rune of the Wolf and Chest of the Mundane.
These items usually offer the party great utility or lead to some sort of treasure, so let’s look into the Baldur’s Gate 3 Mirror of Loss in more detail.
Where is the Mirror of Loss?
There are actually two Mirrors of Loss you can find in the game – one is in the Gauntlet of Shar while the other is in a place called the House of Grief in Lower City.
You may recognize the Gauntlet of Shar as the same place where you can find the Soft-Step Trial and the Silent Library. You actually can’t use the Mirror of Loss here, so don’t bother wasting any time trying to find a way to interact with it.
Instead, you’ll have to wait until Act 3 to get to the Mirror of Loss in the House of Grief. The mirror is found in the lowest level of the building.
How to use the Mirror of Loss
To use the Mirror of Loss inside the House of Grief, simply approach it and it should initiate an Arcana check and a Religion check. Pass both of these and you will be able to trade in a memory for a -2 in one ability score and +2 in another.
Be warned though, if you fail the Religion check when using the mirror, you will only get the -2 on an ability score. What scores the Mirror of Loss you affect will depend on what memories you select to trade in.
Once you’re done using the Mirror of Loss, you can actually get rid of the -2 penalty by having Shadowheart cast the Remove Curse spell on the person who used the mirror.
