The Addled Frog in Baldur’s Gate 3 is a cute little frog you encounter after you start the quest to save a girl named Mayrina in the Putrid Bog. Since Baldur’s Gate 3 allows players to deal with each scenario in various ways, we will show you two scenarios that can happen with the Addled Frog.

Key Takeaways

  • The Addled Frog can be found in the Putrid Bog. It will attack you if you approach it, so keep your distance.
  • If you are not careful, it can give you a poison status effect lasting for one turn.
  • The Addled Frog only has 12 health points, so you can kill it quite quickly. But we recommend not doing that.

First Scenario

First, when you enter the Putrid Bog, go to your right and be mindful that there are traps in the water, so keep out of the water as much as possible. Once the frog is in sight, you can approach and interact with it.

This will most likely end in a fight with the frog. The frog might be tiny, but it does much poison damage. Furthermore, killing the frog will not yield any reward. This is the worst method to deal with the frog.

Second Scenario

Firstly, players must finish the Save Mayrina quest for the best possible outcome. Furthermore, you must save a girl named Mayrina from Auntie Ethel in this quest. So, completing the quest before interacting with the frog is recommended.

When you deal enough damage to Auntie Ethel in her hut, she will escape to her secret cave behind the fireplace. Before going after her, ensure you have no status effects on you.

Once inside the cave, you will encounter a Gnarled Door. You can either destroy it or persuade it to open for you. Furthermore, Persuasion depends on the dice roll, so you can save the game here and keep rolling until you win.

Behind the door, you will need to defeat four masked enemies. Afterward, you will have to cross a path full of traps. After crossing the trap-filled path, you will have your final encounter with Auntie Ethel.


  •  We recommend players be on level 4 or above when attempting to fight Auntie Ethel.
  •  Auntie Ethel is a powerful hag, so players need to be stocked up on health potions.
  •  She has traps in her cave, so having a Trap Disarm Kit on hand is necessary.
  •  She attacks using magic from a distance, so we recommend using magic and bows against her.
  •  Try fighting her alone, so getting rid of all the enemies in the area is recommended.
  •  Recommended characters for the fight are Gale and Shadowheart.

Furthermore, here is a list of enemies you will encounter during the quest Save Mayrina.
