- Honour Mode in Baldur’s Gate 3 is the ultimate challenge, with a total party kill permanently ending a playthrough. Bosses have unique abilities and increased health, making long rests crucial.
- The rare Heavy Supply Pack discovered in Act 3 provides 80 camp supplies, allowing players to take more long rests. One player recently discovered this item after playing for more than 500 hours.
- Players suggest adding more Supply Packs, like the Heavy Supply Pack, in Act 1 and Act 2 to manage inventory and keep things tidy.
One particular item in Baldur’s Gate 3 can prove to be very useful when playing through Tactician or Honour Mode, and it took five hundred hours for a player to come across it for the first time. It’s no secret that Larian’s latest release has seen a surge in popularity after winning Game of the Year at The Game Awards 2023, as the player count for Baldur’s Gate 3 on Steam is still going strong. While the branching narrative and diverse class options can inspire fans to try a new playthrough of Baldur’s Gate 3, the community’s latest obsession has undoubtedly been Honour Mode.
Honour Mode in Baldur’s Gate 3 is the ultimate challenge that players can undertake, where a total party kill will permanently end a playthrough. Not only do bosses have access to unique abilities in Honour Mode, but they also come with an upgraded health pool for adventurers to deplete. In order to always have their spells and abilities prepared, taking long rests is an even bigger part of Baldur’s Gate 3 gameplay in Honour Mode – and there’s also a catch: to take a long rest, the game asks for 80 camp supplies instead of the usual 40.
Loose Baldur’s Gate 3 Story Threads That Would Make Great Homebrewed D&D Campaigns
Baldur’s Gate 3 leaves several loose story threads behind that would be great if modified into homebrewed Dungeons and Dragons campaigns.
This is where the Heavy Supply Pack comes in, as the rare item discovered by yoboililj provides 80 camp supplies at 10 weight. Unfortunately, the Heavy Supply Pack can only be found in Act 3, inside Danthelon’s Dancing Axe on a shelf next to the door. Considering that it takes a while for players to reach Wyrm’s Crossing in Baldur’s Gate 3, especially in Honour Mode, it could be argued that the Heavy Supply Pack comes too late to provide full benefit.
Supply Packs can be discovered in a few places in Act 1, such as the Goblin Camp or the Underdark, but these regular ones only provide 40 camp supplies. The Heavy Supply Pack is a unique curiosity by comparison, and Baldur’s Gate 3 players can’t help but wonder if the campaign could be improved by sprinkling in a few more of them across Act 1 and Act 2. Managing the inventory in Baldur’s Gate 3 tends to become a hassle in the late game, and having more Supply Packs (of either variety) would certainly help keep things tidy.
Ultimately, the attention to detail and the sheer number of items that Baldur’s Gate 3 has hidden in its game world should help keep players occupied for years to come. Though Larian has been tight-lipped about making post-launch content for Baldur’s Gate 3, the patches have shown that the developers are certainly open to making radical changes based on player feedback.
