The Underdark is one of the darkest and most dangerous locations in Baldur’s Gate 3, which beckons with its mystery and hidden treasures of various heroes, rogues and adventurers. Almost everything here wants to kill you, be it flora or fauna. However, with the right knowledge and skills, you can benefit from your stay in this unpleasant place, for example, find a rare, extremely valuable mushroom.
If in your wanderings in the darkness you have stumbled upon the mushroom kingdom, which is a colony of myconids, then you have probably already met Derrit, a local herbalist who ventured into the depths of the Underdark with her husband in order to find rare plants and other curiosities there. sale.
One of the most valuable such rarities is the good mushroom, which, according to legend, grows somewhere in the Underdark in a single copy. Why this mushroom is so important and whether it makes sense to look for it in principle, we will tell you in our guide.
In addition to intriguing stories about the miraculous properties of the good mushroom, Derrit will tell you about her misfortune: her unlucky husband named Baelen disappeared while trying to find this mushroom, and now she needs someone to go in search of him.
In fact, Baelen was unable to go far, as he was stuck in the vicinity of a myconid colony near the Susssur Tree. He cannot return on his own, as he somehow managed to become trapped in a field of bieberbangs – green, glowing mushrooms that emit plumes of flammable spores into the air if approached. One wrong step and the entire field will be engulfed in a pillar of murderous flame.
To prevent this from happening, you can take out Baelen by simply throwing him the Misty Step scroll. If you don’t have it, then on the same field lies his backpack, where there is the same scroll. The easiest and safest way would be to send a Magic Hand there – it can be summoned by Laezel, Gale or Shadowheart.
Find a good mushroom
Ironically, that same good mushroom is located nearby – in the east of the clearing. Here, too, it would be easiest and safest to use the services of the Magic Hand, but you can also gallop up to the mushroom along the ledges and try to grab it as quickly as possible and run away (it’s best to do this in a step-by-step mode).

So you have found what you were looking for, but is it worth sharing such a treasure with others?
Having obtained the reserved good mushroom, you will discover that it really has miraculous properties – it completely heals and removes all negative effects. It sounds cool, but it only works once, so we don’t recommend being so wasteful with this rare find.
If you are playing as a Dark Seduction character, eating the mushroom will reveal some interesting things about your past. You can also give the good mushroom to one of your partners, in which case Shadowheart will restore fragments of his memories from childhood, and Karlakh will receive inspiration.
What happens if you give the good mushroom to Derrit?
Of course, the most correct thing would be to give the good mushroom to Derrit. The woman will be very grateful to you, because she believes that thanks to such a rare product she will finally be able to get rich and will invite you to drop by her shop in Baldur’s Gate.
For saving her husband, she will in any case give you the Gloves of the Indomitable Kushigo, which give an additional 1d4 damage to throwing damage. However, for finding a good mushroom, you will not receive any other valuable reward, except for a cheap ring, if you decide to put pressure on Derrit so that she pays you at least something.
What happens if you give the good mushroom to Baelen?
While communicating with Baelen, you will notice that he behaves somehow strangely and detachedly, as if he has his head in the clouds. Apparently this is due to some kind of trauma, since, according to Derrit, he was not always like this, but for some reason she is not particularly keen to cure her husband. Accordingly, this healing mushroom can help the poor fellow finally come to his senses and you can recognize the real Baelen.
