Cold Snap

In Baldur’s Gate 3, The Cold Snap is a dagger from Ferg Drogher (X:45; Y:-102) in Rivington during Act 3. It’s a fantastic off-hand weapon that passively increases your Armour class by 1, making you more survival. Its second effect, the Chilling Counter, also has a chance to apply the chilled status effect. If an attacker misses you, there’s a chance that they’ll become Chilled for 2 turns, but it depends on their ability to resist the effect through a Constitution Saving Throw.

Classes that will most benefit from it are Rogue or Ranger classes. You can equip it to your character’s main hand weapon slot in the inventory, providing additional bonuses and buffs. The user needs Simple Weapon proficiency or suffers penalties while wearing the weapon. You can equip it on any class, companion, or character with Simple Weapon proficiency.

How to Get The Cold Snap in Baldur’s Gate 3

As soon as you start Act 3, you’ll find yourself in Rivington Village, and you can find Ferg Drogher on the road southeast of Arfur’s Mansion (X:45; Y:-102). He sells a few valuable items, including the Cold Snap in Baldur’s Gate 3 (BG3). But first, you must convince him to sell you his stuff. He buys heirlooms from desperate refugees needing gold and trades their goods elsewhere. To persuade him, you don’t need to approve of his method but do not engage in combat with him. Ask if you can see his vares, and he will show what he has for sale.

If you have Shadowheart in your party, he will recognize Shadowheart. Depending on your decisions, you’ll engage in two different dialogues. The conversation will lead to Ferg walking away, so if you want to buy the items, do not bring Shadowheart with you. However, he is part of the Shadowheart personal quest, so if you want to learn more or get Viconia’s Walking Fortress, the Legendary Shield, you will need to bring Shaodwheart to him at some point anyway.

How does Trailers Stock Work?

Vendors, including Ferg Drogher, will offer a random selection of items each day, so after taking a long rest and finishing the day, their shop’s inventory should refresh. So it may take a few days to find and get the Harold in BG3. Happy shopping!
