Where to Find the Dowry in Baldur's Gate 3 and Whether You Should Return It

If you choose to take the dowry, you will receive a ring valued at 115 gold.

If you choose to return the dowry to Benryn, he will express his gratitude towards you.

After rescuing the characters from the burning building, players can accept Benryn's quest to locate his wife's dowry. However, it is important to note that the dowry can be discovered without accepting the quest. Players may have already obtained and sold it prior to rescuing him.

After discovering what happened to Miri and locating the dowry, players may feel compelled to return it to Benryn out of compassion. However, this decision is solely based on the character's moral compass. The ring is valued at 115 gold, which is a considerable amount of wealth. Characters who are aligned with good intentions may choose to give it away for role-playing purposes, but others may opt to keep the ring and have extra cash on hand.

The Gilded Chest that contains the dowry can also be sold for profit. While players have the option to return the entire chest to Benryn, there is no significant advantage to doing so, even from a moral standpoint. Therefore, it is acceptable to keep the chest and sell it without feeling any guilt.
