Should You Give Lady Esther The Egg?

Players are often given simple moral and adventuring decisions in Baldur’s Gate 3. The game is beatable in many different ways, meaning an evil or good-aligned character can have no issue beating the campaign. However, some choices require players to consider both what is practical and what is morally right, blending effectiveness with ethical considerations.

When Lady Esther asks for a Githyanki Egg, she’s asking for a sentient being’s child. Players might initially balk at the choice, though she does say that this experiment may result in proving the gith aren’t inherently violent. Baldur’s Gate 3 delivers a memorable outcome with any of the selected choices here.

Baldur's Gate 3 Making A Decision About The Egg With Lady Esther

It is not recommended to give Lady Esther any Egg in most campaigns. Agreeing or refusing to give her the Owlbear Egg or the Githyanki Egg in Baldur’s Gate 3 will result in the following consequences:

  • The death of the members of the Society of Brilliance if players give her an Owlbear or a Githyanki Egg.
  • Lae’zel’s high disapproval when Tav agrees to give her a Githyanki Egg.
  • Combat Lady Esther if you refuse to give her a Githyanki Egg.

Players can give Lady Esther either a Githyanki Egg or an Owlbear Egg (that requires passing a few skill checks) to claim 249 Gold. Gamers who have already saved the Owlbear Cub will have it tucked in the Camp Supply pouch in their inventory if they haven’t chosen to eat, use, or sell it. However, selling the Owlbear Egg normally yields more money than Lady Esther offers; 750 Gold.

The experiment is disastrous as the Society of Brilliance will hatch the egg, unaware that even a baby Githyanki or Owlbear is naturally aggressive. These members will die. Even if players want to do a Dark Urge campaign, this is a somewhat sketchy choice as Omeluum can potentially be an ally.

Strongly denying Lady Esther’s request will result in a battle, so be ready if you decide to make this decision as she may turn invisible. However, if players let Volo try to cure their parasite, players shouldn’t be too worried as they’ll be able to see her just fine.
