Coordinates: (40, 629)

This Caravan Strongbox is the missing shipment involved in the quest. While difficult, you can lockpick and open it to check its contents. We recommend not doing this, as the contents inside aren't worth it, and there's a lot of good unlockables if you continue the quest by delivering it to the Zhentarim Hideout without opening it.

Inside the chest, there's a Scroll of Feather Fall, and the Iron Flask. The Iron Flask, when used, unleashes a powerful Spectator enemy. You can use this in battle, but note that the Spectator won't be your ally and will be hostile against you as well. There's no reward to defeating the Spectator.

Coordinates: (-83, 615)

Benryn is the other person that you can rescue in the burning building. It is much harder to rescue him since the fire will spread upon opening the door.

We recommend going another way; the house to the west will allow you to safely go to the room that he's in without triggering the fire. You'll still need to pass either the Strength or Investigation check to clear the debris on top of him.

Upon rescuing him, he'll be mourning his dead lover, and will mention a dowry.

Bring it to Benryn, and you can either keep the ring or give it back to him to finish the quest. Giving it to him will give no reward, but keeping it also doesn't do much since it doesn't have an effect and is only worth 20 Gold.

Gilded Chest: Hamarhraft

The Risen Road Maps and Points of Interest | Baldur's Gate 3 (BG3)|Game8 (31)
