How to Get Boots of Genial Striding in Baldur’s Gate 3

You can purchase Boots of Genial Striding from a vendor named Blurg who can be found in the Myconid Colony in the Underdark. A quick way to get into the Underdark is to use the Well found in the Blighted Village. However, at least one of your characters will need to pass a DC10 Intelligence check in order to be able to discover the well. Once down inside there will be lots of spider enemies, in addition to a Phase Spider Matriach you can choose to fight.

Head west over to find the Whispering Depth waypoint. Near there should be a open chasm. Cast Feather Fall or consume a Feather Fall potion BEFORE jumping in. This will land you safely in the Underdark. Head northwest and you should find the Myconid Colony. You’ll have to pass a DC 5 Charisma check in order to convince them that you’re a friendly sort, and they’ll allow you in. You’ll find Blurg just a little to the north of the Colony waypoint.
