Dragon’s Grasp

In Baldur’s Gate 3, the Dragon’s Grasp handaxe can be acquired very early on in the game, and the main perk grants you a chance to deal extra damage. The main bonus is called Burned Alive, and it allows you to deal an additional 1-4 points of extra Slashing damage to Burning targets.

The Burning condition also isn’t difficult to cause in the early game of Baldur’s Gate 3. Many classes will have access to the very basic cantrip called Fire Bolt right away. Therefore, all you need is to look for oil on the floor, or barrels of alcohol, or create your own trap by throwing a bottle of grease/oil. Cast a Fire Bolt at any of these features and you’ll set the area and any enemies within on fire.

Baldur's Gate 3 Arron Location

To get Dragon’s Grasp in Baldur’s Gate 3, you will need to locate the Emerald/Druid Grove and find the merchant Arron inside. The Emerald Grove is north of where you crash land with the nautiloid. When you first approach the main gate you’ll find it under attack by a group of goblins. Help the Tieflings out by attacking the goblins, and when the fight is over they will let you inside.

All you have to do now is move straight ahead, north into the Hollow. Just before the path splits as you enter the cavernous area, you’ll see a Druid Hafling over on your right. This is the first trader you’re likely to find in the game and he sells the Dragon’s Grasp. Additionally, you can also purchase the Gloves of Missile Snaring from him.
