Baldur’s Gate 3 is lifted straight from the tabletop game of the same name. This means that you have a lot of choices to make during the story of the game, along with creating your own character builds. If you’re looking to play as a rogue, you may want to try a stealth build, especially when specing into the thief or assassin classes. Stealth can give you a huge advantage before and during combat. The Penemubral armor is one of the best pieces of light armor that gives the wearer +3 for every stealth check. Here is where to find the Penumbral Armor in Baldur’s Gate 3.
Baldur’s Gate 3: 10 Reasons Why Shadowheart Is The Main Character
While players can choose anyone as their main character in Baldur’s Gate 3, it can be argued that Shadowheart is the game’s true protagonist.
Enter the Shadow Cursed Lands
At the end of Act 1, you are tasked with heading to the Shadow Cursed Lands by way of the Underdark or the Mountain Pass. It is recommended to explore both of these areas before moving to the Shadow Cursed Lands. The final choice only changes which side of this new area you will arrive in at the beginning of Act 2.
Gain Immunity From the Shadow Curse
The Shadow Cursed Land is affected by a suffocating darkness that deals necrotic damage to your party. The first goal should be to find protection against it. Use a torch to stave off the Shadow Curse until you reach the Last Light Inn. It’s hard to miss, just look for the large bubble shield over the Inn in the distance. Meet Isobel at the Inn to receive Selune’s Blessing so you no longer have to use a torch.
There are certain parts of the Shadow Cursed Lands where the Shadow Curse is even stronger. For these areas, you need a Moonlantern. If you enter through the Mountain Pass you will find an enemy squad. Convince the Spider enemy to give it to you or fight him for it. If you enter through the Underdark you will meet a group of Harpers fighting shadows. Help them, and they will point you toward the Last Light Inn. Meet Isobel, and then the Harpers will ask for help ambushing the spider-led squad with them. The Moonlantern will block the Shadow Curse as long you are holding it.
Get to the Abandoned House
Once you can fend off the curse, head to the abandoned house directly to the east of the Last Light Inn.
Cross the small land bridge, and you will see a signpost warning of the stronger Shadow Curse ahead. The abandoned house has two entrances and a chest in the yard.
Unlock the Opulent Chest
Head straight in from the door facing the Last Light Inn. There is a small room with a skeleton and an Opulent Chest.
Pass the 16 Dexterity skill check to lockpick the chest and receive the stylish and stealthy Penumbral Armor.
