To get the Thermoarcanic Gloves in Baldur’s Gate 3 you’ll need to make your way into the Shadow-Cursed Lands of Act 2 and participate in the Harper Ambush on the Absolute cultists. An orc named Kansif will be traveling with the group of cultists, and will be carrying the Thermoarcanic Gloves. You can take part in the ambush in one of two ways:

  • Find the Last Light Inn first. You can travel with a group of Harpers to an ambush site where they will attack the Drider and the group he leads through the Shadow.
  • Enter the Shadow-Cursed Lands from the Rosymorn Monastery Trail. A group of Absolute followers will be waiting for Minthara but can be convinced you’re with them, too. Use the Spider’s Lyre to summon the Drider, and then during the Harper ambush, you can turn on the cultists.

It’s possible that you could choose to fully side with the cultists, and the Harpers might kill Kansif so that you could still loot the gloves. However, if this was really the route you wanted to take it would be best to ‘save scum’ before the fight. Who the Harpers choose to target and manage to kill will be random and there is no guarantee that Kansif will die each time.

Regardless, after the fight find Kansif’s body and you can loot the Thermoarcanic Gloves.
