Act 2 Missable Items Checklist - Baldur's Gate 3 (BG3)

By zanuffas
Last updated:

Here is a Checklist for Act 2 missable or unique items in Baldur's Gate 3. This should help you follow and collect all the most powerful items to make the most out of your playthrough.

This is a work-in-progress and new functionality, leave any feedback in the comments!

How does it work?

  • No need for any registering or logins, with the current functionalities
  • The checklist persists on the same browser and doesn't disappear if you leave the page.
  • Hovering on an item will give additional information (I am still working on including all of it from game files)
  • You can click on the items, and some of them explain how to obtain them in greater detail.
  • Items highlighted with gold color, are important for many builds, and I recommend picking them up even if you are not making a specific build. They can become useful if you will do a respec.

Credits and Thank yous:

  • - an amazing resource that helped to go through all locations in the game
  • Greg758 and Kastorex - from BG3 Discord for sharing recommended item list for various builds
