Baldur’s Gate 3 players got together to list out some of the rarest and most difficult-to-obtain items in the game, along with detailed steps on how to get them.

You can find a plethora of items in Baldur’s Gate 3 by looting, completing quests, or searching in unexpected places. Many of these may go unnoticed unless you go through multiple playthroughs. Collecting every item in a single playthrough is also impossible, as some quest rewards require you to select one of many items.

Now, some Baldur’s Gate 3 players have come together to point out obscure items that are quite easy to miss. It was ‘Scornz’ who first shared a list of such items on the Baldur’s Gate 3 subreddit and others came to add to that list. The OP also specified which Act these items are found in and how to obtain them.

The list of items they mentioned include the Club of Hill Giant Strength, the Spineshudder Amulet, and the Bonespike Gloves. All of these are found off the beaten path, or “by sheer luck.”

To get the club, you must destroy a stool on top of the Arcane Tower in the Underdark. To get the amulet, “you have to one-shot the chest in Ketheric Thorm’s bedroom without it turning to a Mimic.” The gloves are found on an enemy called Strangler Luke, when you’re fighting the Farslayer of Bhaal Ghislev. You must loot his corpse immediately after killing him as it will vanish when the fight ends.

Naturally, many Baldur’s Gate 3 players admitted to missing out on many of these items. Some of them also added more items like Svartlebee’s Woundseeker, the Amulet of Silvanus, the Smuggler’s Ring, the Ring of Poison Resistance, and Worgfang. Some of these are hidden in plain sight in places like the Druid Grove and the Goblin Camp.

One user mentioned the Hellfire Engine Crossbow, which has to be crafted manually at the Steel Watch Foundry. “You have to pick up a watcher arm, instructions, and some module, then craft it at a specific table in Toobin’s room,” they explained.

According to ‘Dracomies,’ most players miss out on the crossbow as they don’t want to stay in the Steel Watch Foundry for too long. However, as one user pointed out, “it’s easier when everyone is dead.” Another player explained how they “completely missed” Markoheshkir and Robe of the Weave at Ramazith’s Tower, which they claimed were “the best staff and robe in the game.”

Be sure to check out the entire thread embedded above for all of the items and how to get them.

Although these are all hard-to-get items, Baldur’s Gate 3 players can sometimes miss the most obvious things in the game. For instance, some players have been missing out on a seemingly obvious NPC trait, while others confessed how they discovered simple gameplay features “embarrassingly late.”
