Baldur’s Gate 3: How to Avoid Becoming a “Pack Mule”

Have you ever felt the overwhelming urge to carry every single item in Baldur’s Gate 3? Well, my fellow adventurers, I hate to break it to you, but this is the quickest way to become encumbered and miss out on all the goodies the game has to offer. But fear not! I’m here to guide you through the treacherous realm of inventory management with a touch of humor and a spring in my step.

First things first, let’s address the elephant in the room. Yes, you can hand off heavy items to your trusty party members, but be warned, they will become encumbered in the process. It’s like borrowing your friend’s backpack full of rocks and expecting them to sprint a marathon. Not gonna happen, my friends.

Now, you may have heard whispers of a mystical entity called the Traveller’s Chest. This enigmatic storage unit holds the potential to solve all your inventory woes, or so it seems. But here’s the catch: the label on it says “Exclusive use: Public,” which can mislead you into thinking it’s for communal use. Nope, sorry folks, it’s strictly for personal use only. However, fear not! I’m about to unveil the secrets of making the most of this chest.

Unveiling the Secrets of the Traveller’s Chest

Ah, behold! The Traveller’s Chest, nestled in the southwestern corner of the map, patiently waiting for its purpose to be fulfilled. Like a faithful pooch, it will faithfully guard your precious loot until you return. All you need to do is select an item in your inventory, choose the “Send to Camp” option, and voila! Your burden is lightened, and the chest gets a new addition to its ever-growing collection.

But here’s a word of caution, my fellow adventurer. The Traveller’s Chest works its magic only when you’re at camp. It’s not like those fancy storage systems that accompany you on your grand adventures. So, remember to head back to camp whenever you want to retrieve or sell your precious loot. Far from ideal, I know, but hey, we can’t have everything in life. We’re just adventurers, not miracle workers.

Speaking of fellow adventurers, remember that when playing with friends, everyone can access this wondrous chest. Well, sort of. The “Public” label signifies that your buddies, and only your buddies, can partake in the loot-fest. Don’t worry, we all trust our pals, but it’s best to avoid storing anything too valuable when teaming up with strangers. You never know when a sneaky thief might infiltrate your party.

Oh, and one more thing, there are certain items that are only useful in the safety and comfort of your camp. Think rations and camp supplies. Send these back to the Traveller’s Chest and let them rest until they’re needed again. Just make sure to resist the temptation of selling them for a quick buck. Trust me, it’s not worth it. Unless you enjoy eating dry bread and sleeping on rocks, that is.

Now, my friends, go forth and conquer the vast world of Baldur’s Gate 3! But remember, use the Traveller’s Chest wisely, choose your adventuring companions carefully, and above all, never underestimate the power of a well-organized inventory. May the loot gods smile upon you!
