In Baldur’s Gate 3, a Rapier +1 is a Rapier weapon you can get from a merchant during Act 1 – This short Guide Explains everything you need to know about the Rapier +1 in BG3.
In Baldur’s Gate 3 a Rapier +1 is a lightly enchanted blade which can be wielded with one hand. It is also classified as a finesse weapon, which means it can benefit from the wielder’s Dexterity and not just their Strength. Only weapons with this attribute can be used for a Rogue’s sneak attack action, which makes rapiers and daggers an excellent choice for a companion like Astarion.
While it may seem like a simple weapon on the surface this blade is good for a Rogue who has unlocked the Dual Wielding feat. A Warlock or Bard who want a main hand weapon may also wish to pick this up. Though you will certainly replace it later, it does good damage for the early game in Act 1.
