The Baldur’s Gate 3 House of Hope is an incredibly significant dungeon found in the game’s third act. It’s strange to think that you might completely miss out on it if you don’t explore thoroughly enough. Our comprehensive guide will detail what you can expect from this unique location, as well as the individuals you can form alliances with during your journey. However, please note that this article does contain spoilers.
How to Successfully Complete the House of Hope in Baldur’s Gate 3
The House of Hope in Baldur’s Gate 3 belongs to Raphael and is located in Avernus. In order to access this area, you must first complete the Helsik Ritual found in the Lower City’s Devil’s Fee. It’s important to note that you won’t be able to fast travel back to your camp, so make sure you are adequately prepared. We recommend bringing spellcasters or scrolls that can cast spells like Greater Invisibility, Hunger of Hadar, and various radiant magic spells.
Meeting Hope within the House of Hope
The House of Hope is, unsurprisingly, the dwelling of a character named Hope. She has been imprisoned here as a result of Raphael’s schemes. You will have the opportunity to free her once you have obtained the Orphic Hammer. At this stage, your main objective is to engage in dialogue with Hope, so be sure to pass the necessary dialogue checks to ask her important questions. It’s worth mentioning that she will magically change your attire to resemble that of debtors who have been damned and led to the hells through their pacts with devils. While in disguise, the NPCs in the House of Hope will not attack you.
Exploring the House of Hope
The House of Hope is a fascinating and unsettling location that offers various points of interest. As you navigate through this domain, you will come across the following areas:
– On your right, you will find a portal chamber that grants access to different realms, although traveling to Neverwinter is not an option. This serves as a clever reference to the way devils can traverse through realms.
– Near the entrance of the portal chamber, there is a hatch that leads to Hope’s prison. However, you will need the Orphic Hammer in order to free her, so progression in this area is not possible at the moment.
– It is currently not possible to pass through the Mystic Force Curtain, so there is no need to concern yourself with it for now.
– Keep an eye out for an Inert Infernal Gem located on a wall. Passing the DC10 Wisdom and DC20 Intelligence checks will reveal a hidden room. Inside, you will discover valuable items such as the Helldusk Helmet (very rare) and the Staff of Spellpower (very rare). Additionally, you will come across Mol’s Contract.
– Note: If you accepted Raphael’s offer in the “Deal With the Devil” quest, we have yet to confirm whether this hidden room is also where you will find Tav’s Contract. We did not continue with the storyline that was affected by this decision.

Upon reaching the western section of the Baldur’s Gate 3 House of Hope dungeon, Hope will inform you about the Archivist. Successfully passing the skill checks during this encounter will reveal that the Archivist fears Verillius Receptor, Zariel’s inquisitor. This knowledge gives you the option to impersonate the inquisitor, allowing you to proceed without any hindrance from the Archivist.
In this area, you will also come across three significant items:
– Orphic Hammer (legendary): This weapon deals 4-13 damage, grants advantage on saving throws against spells, has a +3 weapon enchantment, and provides the “Unshackling Strike” action. Unfortunately, you won’t be able to obtain it just yet. We will discuss how to acquire it shortly.
– Amulet of Greater Health (very rare): Equipping this amulet raises your Constitution to 23 and grants advantage on Constitution saving throws.
– Gauntlets of Hill Giant Strength (very rare): These gauntlets increase your Strength to 23 and provide a +1 bonus to Strength saving throws. If you made a pact with Helsik, this is the item she desires.
It is important not to take any items from this area just yet. Due to the unpredictable nature of the events that will unfold during the upcoming battle, it is wise to devise a plan beforehand.

The Archivist will present you with an invitation to enter the Boudoir. At this point, you can pass through the Mystic Force Curtain. Within the Boudoir, there is a pool that allows you to restore your health points, spell slots, and charges, as if you had completed a long rest. Additionally, you will encounter Haarlep, an incubus who serves as a pseudo-Raphael romance option within the game.
