Unlocking BG3 Bag of Holding: Acquisition, Use and the Chest of the Mundane Explained

If you’re a fan of tabletop RPGs like Dungeons & Dragons, you may be wondering if you can get your hands on a Bag of Holding in Larian Studios’ Baldur’s Gate 3. After all, dealing with over-encumbrance in the middle of an epic adventure can be quite a hassle. Luckily, there are ways to address this issue and obtain a similar item called the Chest of the Mundane.

Is a Bag of Holding Available in BG3?

Currently, the vanilla version of Baldur’s Gate 3 does not include a Bag of Holding in its loot. However, there are alternatives to consider. One option is to find the Chest of the Mundane, an item that functions in a very similar way to the Bag of Holding. Another option is to use a mod that adds the Bag of Holding into the game, if you are familiar with modding. Below, we’ll explain how to obtain both.

What is the Chest of the Mundane?

The Chest of the Mundane is a magical container that works much like a Bag of Holding. When you place an item inside it, the chest magically adjusts its weight, allowing you to carry heavy items with ease. However, there’s a catch. When you store an item in the chest, it transforms into a mundane object, like a spoon or bowl. But when you retrieve the item from the chest, it returns to its original form. In essence, it’s a clever solution for transporting heavy items without becoming overburdened.

How to Obtain the Chest of the Mundane in BG3

You can find the Chest of the Mundane at the entrance of the Arcane Tower, situated in the southwest of the Underdark, just south of the Underdark Beach. Enter the tower through the eastern entrance, and proceed to the balcony where you’ll automatically trigger an Arcane check. This check will reveal the chest.

Inside the chest, you’ll discover Mystra’s Grace, a pair of magical boots infused with the Transmutation spell Feather Fall. The wearer can cast Feather Fall as a bonus action, granting them and nearby party members immunity from fall damage.

On the other hand, if you’re a hardened D&D veteran who needs the real deal and you’re playing the game on PC, you may want to opt to download a mod that introduces the Tardis-like receptacle into the game.

Indeed, this mod from Chance Santana-Wees has got you covered as it adds the Bag of Holding into the base version of Baldur’s Gate 3. If you’re unsure how to add mods into your game, here’s a vid that outlines the process to make things easier for you.

Of course, it’s important to note that you can only use mods in the PC version of BG3. Console versions of the game do not support mods, so the Chest of the Mundane will have to do for now.

And with that, we conclude our guide on how to get a Bag of Holding in Baldur’s Gate 3. For more, here’s whether you can become a vampire and how to lift the Shadow Curse. Otherwise, feel free to browse the links below before you go.
