Every game with special editions or item DLCs has different ways to add your purchased goodies to your game. Some require you to progress to get them, others just drop them in your inventory. Baldur’s Gate 3 does require you to progress just a little bit to get most of your Deluxe Edition items, but not too far in. In this guide we’ll go over how to get your Baldur’s Gate 3 Deluxe Edition bonuses as soon as you’re able, as well as what’s inside the the Adventurer’s Pouch.
How to Get Baldur’s Gate 3 Deluxe Edition Bonuses
There are three categories of goodies for Baldur’s Gate 3 Deluxe Edition holders, these being:
- Functional and cosmetic in-game items, such as the Cape of the Red Beast and items within the Adventurer’s Pouch.
- The special dice skin.
- Files for the digital artbook, character sheets, and OST.
How you get all three types of goodies varies, so we’ll go over each one below. The dice are listed in their own category above, because they must be accessed differently from the others. The bonuses that are files rather than in-game items, such as the OST and artbook, can be accessed as soon as you download the game.
How to Get the In-game Baldur’s Gate 3 Digital Deluxe Bonuses
You won’t be able to gain access to your Digital Deluxe Edition bonuses until after you’ve left the Nautiloid at the start of the game. Getting through the Nautiloid is relatively quick and easy, and serves as a tutorial of sorts for what’s to come. After you’ve found yourself on the beach, you should be able to initiate either a Long Rest or simply head to camp.
Once at camp, look around for a Traveller’s Chest. Note that there will be a Traveller’s Chest present for each player in the party who owns the Deluxe Edition of Baldur’s Gate 3, if you happen to be playing multiplayer.
In the chest, you’ll find the following items:
- Mask of the Shapeshifter
- Peculiar Clothing Chest
- Peculiar Clothing Chest contents: Cape of the Red Prince, Lute of the Merryweather Bard, Bicorne of the Sea Beast, Needle of the Outlaw Rogue
- Bewildering Adventurer’s Pack
- Bewildering Adventurer’s Pack contents: 71 Camp Supplies’ worth of food, Potion of Animal Speaking, Potion of Flying, Potion of Mind Reading, Potion of Feather Fall, Elixir of Hill Giant Growth
How to Get the Baldur’s Gate 3 Deluxe Edition Dice Skin
You can use the special Deluxe Edition Dragonflame red dice starting from your very first dice roll on the Nautiloid. Before you roll the dice, check the bottom left of your screen for an icon to swap dice. We have a more comprehensive guide on Baldur’s Gate 3 dice, how to change dice, and which dice you can get.
How to Get the Baldur’s Gate 3 Deluxe Edition Digital Artbook, OST, and Character Sheets
You don’t even have to launch the game to delve into these goodies. Instead, you find them in the game’s files. You can most easily browse to your Baldur’s Gate 3 folder (or any game on Steam) by doing the following:
- Right-click the game in your Steam library.
- Mouse over “Manage.”
- Click “Browse local files.”
This will open the game’s directory in the Windows file browser, and from there you can find the digital artbook, soundtrack, and character sheets to use for your own DnD 5e campaigns in a folder titled DigitalDeluxe.
And that’s it! Now you know how to get all of your Baldur’s Gate 3 Deluxe Edition bonuses, from individual files to in-game cosmetics and the Dragonflame red dice. They’re a little gaudy, but a little gaudiness is fun sometimes! Look for more BG3 guides here on GameSkinny.
