Baldur’s Gate 3 Rope Guide: Mastering Climbing and Understanding the Rope Trick Spell

Discovering the uses of Rope in Baldur’s Gate 3

Baldur’s Gate 3 presents a vast world full of possibilities for interaction, leaving players curious about the potential uses of various objects. One such object is the humble rope. Let’s take a closer look at how rope is utilized in the game.

In Baldur’s Gate 3, you have the option to throw a rope by selecting the rope object from your hotbar and pressing the Throw button. This action can be beneficial as it allows you to obstruct traps by throwing the rope on objects such as vents. However, it’s important to note that any thrown item can serve the same purpose, making the rope just as valuable as a mere rock.

It’s worth mentioning that you cannot directly use the rope from your inventory in Baldur’s Gate 3. The most practical application for ropes is to sell them to a vendor for a solitary piece of gold, or simply ignore them altogether. Additionally, it’s not possible to unwind a rope and use it for climbing. Sadly, using ropes to ascend or descend is not a mechanic in the game. We apologize for dashing your rope-related hopes and dreams.

Nevertheless, worry not! There are alternative methods available for vertical navigation within the game world that don’t involve ropes.

Safely Navigate Up and Down in Baldur’s Gate 3

Exploring the world of Baldur’s Gate 3 can be both exhilarating and challenging. Fortunately, there are several ways to ensure a safe journey while climbing. Here are some tips:

Climbing Down

If you need to descend from a height, casting Feather Fall is your best bet. This spell, available to Bard, Eldritch Knight (Fighter), Sorcerer, Wizard, and Arcane Trickster (Rogue) characters, negates fall damage and allows for a gentle landing.

Climbing Up

When it comes to ascending, there are a couple of options. If the height is manageable, you can simply use the Jump action. Characters with high Strength will have an advantage as they can jump farther and higher. For greater heights, casting the Fly spell can lift you up. This spell is accessible to level five Sorcerers, Warlocks, and Wizards. However, ensure you have a Level 3 Spell Slot available; otherwise, the spell will fail. Remember to take a Long Rest if you need to recover the Spell Slot.

Alternatively, you can select the area you wish to reach and guide your character towards it. If the path allows for it, they will navigate there on foot, even if it means taking a detour.

Understanding the Rope Trick Spell

While the Rope Trick spell exists in Baldur’s Gate 3, it cannot assist you in traversing or discovering new areas. Its sole purpose is to create a vertical rope that transports medium-sized characters or smaller to a different dimension, providing temporary safety from threats. Unfortunately, you cannot tie the rope anywhere in the environment to aid movement.

It’s important to note that the Rope Trick spell does not require an actual rope to cast.

Wizards can learn and utilize the Rope Trick spell, but it requires an Action and a Level 2 Spell Slot. Unfortunately, it is not useful for exploring the world with ease.
