Dark Displacement Gloves

In Baldur’s Gate 3 the Dark Displacement Gloves are a good set of back-up gloves for Barbarians or Rogues due to their bonuses to throwing and stealing. The main perk Subtle Swap grants a +1 bonus to Attack Rolls when throwing. Moreover, these gloves also have the unique ability to swap positions between you and the target, provided the target fails a Dexterity Saving Throw. This could be a really interesting way to change positioning and strategy in combat encounters quickly!

Additionally, these gloves grant the wearer a +1 to the Sleight of Hand skill. This could provide a nice boost to a Rogue such as Astarion, who might need some extra help when cracking all of those pesky locks.

Here are all the Dark Displacement Gloves features in BG3:

  • Armor: Gloves
  • Proficiency Requirement: N/A
  • Rarity: Rare
  • Weight: 0.5 kg
  • Value: 304
  • Location: Taken from Popper at the Circus of the Last Days, Act 3

  • All Classes, Companions, and Races Can Use This Item

How to Get Dark Displacement Gloves in Baldur’s Gate 3

To get the Dark Displacement Gloves in Baldur’s Gate 3 you will need to visit the Circus of the Last Days in Rivington and find a Kobold merchant named Popper. You don’t technically have to buy them from him outright. The Dark Displacement Gloves can also be looted or pickpocketed from him. But look at this cute guy – would you really stab him in the gut over a pair of gloves?

When you start Act 3 you will be outside of the City of Baldur’s Gate in an area called Rivington. The Circus of the Last Days can be found here, just a little bit northwest of the Rivington waypoint. At the entrance gates you’ll be stopped by Klaus and his murderer sniffing ghoul Benjamin. You’ll have the option to try convincing him you’re safe with a 15 DC Intimidation, Deception, or Persuasion dialogue line. Or, you can just bribe him with 200 gold.

He’ll have a stall out with all of his things for sale. You can buy the Dark Displacement Gloves from him for 304 gold. Or steal/loot them if you’re a little hard up on cash.
