During your playthrough of Baldur’s Gate 3, you will encounter moral dilemmas, and one of them is whether to release the Pixie from the lamp. While it may seem like a harmless choice, the Shadow curse in the Shadow Lands can make exploration challenging. The Moonlantern can aid in navigation, but releasing the Pixie comes with a price. Let’s explore the consequences of freeing the Pixie from the lamp in BG3.

Freeing the Pixie from Moonlantern in BG3

  1. Upon inspecting the lamp, you will find a Pixie named Dolly Dolly Dolly trapped inside. She pleads for her release.
  2. You have the option to make a deal with her or simply set her free.
  3. Once freed, she will ask what you desire in return.
  4. You can request her help in getting through the Shadow curse.
  5. In response, she will bestow a blessing upon you and your party, protecting you from the Shadow curse and allowing you to navigate the realm freely.

However, releasing the Pixie means you will need a new light source to reveal Shadows or Wraiths.

Keeping the Pixie Trapped

If you choose to keep the Pixie trapped, you can continue using the Moonlantern as you have been. While it serves as a light source, allowing you to reveal Shadows and Wraiths, it does occupy your primary hand and requires your party members to stay close to you.

Remember, you can always release her at a later time.

Upon Killing Her

Avoid killing the Pixie after releasing her. Not only will you lose the Moonlantern, but you will also miss out on her blessing, which can greatly aid you in navigating the curse at Moonrise Towers.

If you inspect the lamp and find no Pixie inside, your lamp is broken. Look for the complete Moonlantern to secure the Pixie.
