Thunderpalm Strikers

In Baldur’s Gate 3, the Thunderpalm Strikers are a set of gloves that allow your unarmed attacks to deal an additional 1-4 points of Thunder damage. Additionally, equipping these gloves also gives you access to the Thunderwave spell. This is a Level 3 Evocation spell that not only deals Thunder damage in a wave in front of you but can also knock back enemies. Moreover, if you can position yourself just right, you can use this to push enemies over an edge to their death.

While wearing these gloves you can only cast Thunderwave once per Long Rest, but it’s still an incredibly useful spell to have in your arsenal.

How to Get Thunderpalm Strikers in Baldur’s Gate 3

Baldur's Gate 3 Angleiron's Cellar location

To get the Thunderpalm Strikers in Baldur’s Gate 3 you will need to reach the Rivington area in early Act 3, and then find the merchant Bumpnagel hidden away in Angleiron’s Cellar. Moreover, you can get these gloves early on in Act 3 because Rivington is the first area you visit. However, the entrance to Angleiron’s Cellar is hidden, so it’s easy to skip this merchant entirely.

To find Bumpnagel, head north from the Rivington waypoint or south from the Wyrm’s Crossing waypoint. Near the Sword Coast Couriers establishment walk down the path that runs north along the side of it. Keep your eye out for another path off of it that turns north. There will be a rocky area and some ledges that you can climb or jump down. Once you’re down a few ledges, look around and you should find a pretty obvious crack in the rock face. This is the cave entrance to Angleiron’s Cellar.

Inside you will find the Ironhand Gnomes, including Barcus Wroot if you’ve saved him previously. The Gnome you’re interested in, however, is Bumpnagel. After you climb up the Cragged Rock just inside the safe entrance, walk forward into where the Gnomes are living. Bumpnagel will be just inside on the right, marked by a trader’s icon on the map. Speak to him and you can purchase the Thunderpalm Strikers.
