What is the Harper Stash in Baldur’s Gate 3?

The Harper Stash in Baldur’s Gate 3 is a secret cache hidden deep in an area called Grymforge. This stash belongs to a secret organization that tries to maintain the balance between the Forgotten Realms and contains valuable items including weapons, armor, gold, gems, and magic scrolls.

This chest is not only hidden but it’s also protected by dangerous mimics that will try to kill everyone who tries to lockpick them.

You can try looking for the Harper’s map before traveling to Grymforge, which will reveal the location of the Harper Stash and will mark it automatically on your minimap. You’ll just need to go to the Ravaged Beach and look for the Scuffed Rock on the western side of the area, near where you first find Astarion.

Once you’re traveling, you’ll find another boat that will interrupt your journey. You can either try to convince the sailors you’re friendly or try to attack them.

After you arrive in Grymforge, you’ll need to get to a cave behind a waterfall in the northeastern region. In the cave entrance, you’ll find three deadly mimics that will try to entrap you by transforming themselves into treasure chests.

When you finish killing the mimics, you’ll get an Investigation prompt. If you’re successful, the Harper Stash will appear in front of you.
