The Shadow-Cloaked Ring boosts your attack against shadow foes, and you can find it during Act 2 of Baldur’s Gate 3 (BG3).
In Baldur’s Gate 3 the Shadow-Cloaked Ring is an accessory which can improve hit damage against shadowed foes. The main perk is called Shadowthief, and it grants the wearer the ability to deal and additional 1d4 damage against Lightly or Heavily Obscured creatures, and creatures made of shadow. Moreover, bonus applies to damage done with weapons, as well as unarmed attacks. While this isn’t a ring you’d want to wear at end-game, it could be moderately useful in an otherwise empty accessory slot. Additionally, given that Act 2 takes place in the Shadow-Cursed Lands you’re much more like to come across shadow foes than anywhere else in the game.

How to Get Shadow-Cloaked Ring in Baldur’s Gate 3
To get the Shadow-Cloaked Ring in Baldur’s Gate 3 you need to find the spot in the Shadow-Cursed Lands, summon the Shadow Mastiffs and defeat the Alpha in order to loot the ring from it’s body. The location to summon the mastiffs is located west and a little north of the Shadowed Battlefield waypoint. Additionally, you can also find it by traveling directly south from the Last Light Inn. The spot is along the coast and you’ll find a small area that looks like someone set up camp there.
In a circle around the area you’ll find several lit standing torches. You want to destroy all of them in order to summon the Shadow Mastiffs. You can do with this basic attacks from a melee or ranged weapon. The Shadow Mastiffs will appear and drop down in a circle all around you. Furthermore, there will be four Shadow Mastiffs in total – one Alpha and three pack members.
This shouldn’t be a super difficult fight, as the Alpha doesn’t really have the much more HP than the others. The most annoying mechanic is that the Alpha can make a Terrifying Howl, which can potentially make your party members Fearful. This is an annoying condition which will cause your party members to run away and inhibit them from taking any other action for at least a turn. Keep your range party members at a reasonable distance and try to focus the Alpha down first.
Once you’ve beaten the pack, however, find the body of the Shadow Mastiff Alpha and you can loot the Shadow-Cloaked Ring for yourself!
