Baldur's Gate 3 Stone Door into Underground Passage Act 1

To get Nature’s Snare in Baldur’s Gate 3 you need to find your way into the Underground Passage beneath the Emerald or Druid Grove. There are two easy entrances you can use to get into the Underground Passage:

  • A stone door, hidden off the path in the Forest
  • A stone door, off a hidden ledge, found in the back of the Prison in the Druid Grove

The Underground Passage is filled with a lot of different traps, so be prepared before you enter. First, there are magical statues, that will automatically fire a projectile to anyone who comes in range. If you can pass a small 5 DC Perception check, then you can interact with the rune stones to turn them off. If you’re having trouble dealing with these, try switching to turn-based mode and running over to the runestones.

Additionally, there will also be four goblin enemies here to deal with. They start out distracted with their conversation, so sneak up on them to get in an initial stealth hit.
