Tate, a helpful character, will gift you the Harp-Shaped Pin, serving as a valuable key to access Jaheira’s Hideout. This pin can be conveniently inserted into the Pin Slot located in the Study, unveiling the hidden entrance. Bringing Jaheira along in your group proves beneficial, as her presence enables you to avoid traps within the hideout, with her skillfully alerting you to any potential hazards.

Make your way to the coordinates ‘X: -1562, Y: 980,’ which leads you to a significant area where you can uncover some valuable loot. To gain access, players have two options: either utilize their Thieves’ Tool to open the bookcase or search for a hidden key located in the Loose Planks nearby (specifically to the right.) Even if you fail to disarm the trap protecting the key, the resulting explosion causes minimal damage and will not hinder your ability to interact with it afterwards.

Once you step inside, the excitement begins in Jaheira’s Hideout. Unlock the Opulent Chest and discover two remarkable weapons, the Staff of Ram and the Belm. These weapons bring unique enhancements to the Scimitar and Quarterstaff, giving you a powerful advantage in battles. Don’t forget to explore the Display Case and claim Khalid’s Gift, an Amulet that not only grants you the Aid Level 3 Abjuration spell but also protects Jaheira from curses. But the rewards don’t end there. Take your time to thoroughly search the hideout and uncover more intriguing information about the characters or engage in conversations with the animals for valuable insights.
