After 600 hours of gameplay, a Baldur’s Gate 3 player learned an ingenious technique with the Light cantrip that oddly requires their main character’s underwear.

Baldur’s Gate 3 players have been coming up with crafty methods to exploit the game’s mechanics ever since its release. From automatically killing any NPC that comes close to your character to recruiting Minthara in a good playthrough, there are several instances of players learning something new in the game.

Now, a Baldur’s Gate 3 player named Morfalath has found a new game-changing trick after spending a whopping 600 hours in the game. They shared a trick involving the Light cantrip on the Baldur’s Gate 3 subreddit, which despite being hilarious, is actually quite useful.

The Light cantrip is a reusable spell you can use to illuminate dark areas by making an item emit a bright white light. It’s usually cast on a weapon or piece of clothing, but this Redditor did something unexpected. They cast it on their character’s underwear, accidentally discovering how resourceful it was.

The process is straightforward. Simply remove your character’s underwear, cast the Light cantrip on it, and then wear it. This trick allows you to benefit from light without the drawbacks of having a shiny item, giving you a distinct advantage in low-light situations.

With this trick, you’ll find it easier traversing the Shadow-Cursed Lands in Act 2, when you need to keep a light source on you until you reach the Last Light Inn and get Isobel‘s blessing. It’s definitely also helpful in any other low-light environments, especially if your character doesn’t get the Darkvision bonus from having Fey ancestry.

With such a hilarious trick, other Baldur’s Gate 3 players couldn’t help but chime in. One player wrote, “In an effort to outshine the sun, the brightest celestial body is now Uranus?” while another said, “I’ve heard of putting stuff ‘where the sun don’t shine,’ but that seems a bit excessive.”

One user mentioned that Gale loses the benefit of using this trick “because he doesn’t wear them as much as he should.” This refers to how excessively flirtatious Gale was prior to a patch that tweaked this attribute. Others added how this wouldn’t work for them as everybody in their party “goes commando.”
