How to Get Melf’s First Staff in Baldur’s Gate 3

You can purchase Melf’s First Staff from a vendor named Blurg who can be found in the Myconid Colony in the Underdark. There are several ways to get into the Underdark but probably the shortest way to get to Blurg is to use the Well found in the Blighted Village. Be aware that at least one of your characters will need to pass a DC10 Intelligence check in order for the well to become visible. Once down inside the cavern like area there will be lots of spider enemies, in addition to a Phase Spider Matriach you can choose to fight.

You’ll want to head towards the Whispering Depths waypoint, which almost directly to the west. You should see an open chasm nearby. Cast Feather Fall or consume a Feather Fall potion BEFORE jumping in. Doing so will let you float safely down into the Underdark. From there, 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 mean no harm, and they’ll let you visit the Colony. You’ll find Blurg just a little to the north of the Colony waypoint.
