BG3 Elfsong Tavern Wooden Stairs in Kitchen to Basement

In order to get the Boots of Psionic Movement in Baldur’s Gate 3 you must progress through the game until Act 3, enter the titular City of Baldur’s Gate, and discover the Knights of the Shield Hideout below the Elfsong Tavern. You can easily find the Elfsong Tavern just west of the Basilisk Gate waypoint, just past the Stormshore Tabernacle.

From the front entrance you’ll want to walk all the way into the back kitchen area. On the west side you will find some stairs leading down into a basement door. You have to highlight and click on the Wooden Stairs in order to go down into the basement. Trying to click directly on the door won’t work.

Once you’re in the basement you’ll find numerous rats to fight. Despite their numbers this shouldn’t be too difficult. Next in our search for the Boots of Psionic Movement, you’ll want to go to the left/west to find a smaller room lined with wine racks. Towards the back, near a hole on the right side you will hopefully find a Button that should pop up with a successful Perception check. Press it and through the hole in the wall you should see the door to a wine barrel swing open. Head inside, and you’ll find another door at the bottom of some stairs. This will take you directly into the Knights of the Shield Hideout.

Inside the Knights of the Shield Hideout

Inside you will find a group of Githyanki. Try to sneak up in Stealth to gain a bit of Advantage for this fight, if you can. Try to take out the casters opening portals for new Githyanki to come through. Otherwise, this fight can be frustrating.

When you’ve won, look for the body of a Githyanki named Ch’r’ai Har’rak. He will have the Boots of Psionic Movement!
