If you decided to do a bit of exploring right after the game’s start, you may be wondering how to move the Baldur’s Gate 3 scuffed rock. Because the rock can be found so early into the game, finding a way to interact with it may not seem so obvious.

You’ll come across many challenges throughout your Baldur’s Gate 3 adventure, some may be as simple as moving a rock while others might involve taking down a monstrous beast. But no matter what task the game throws your way, you will have a colorful cast of characters to give you a hand.

So, let’s find out how to move the scuffed rock in Baldur’s Gate 3 and get your group of adventurers back on the road.

How to move the scuffed rock in Baldur’s Gate 3

To move the scuffed rock, you will need someone with a high strength stat in your party. If you’re playing the game solo and the character you’ve created is lacking in strength, you can get an NPC companion to do it.

Most players have found success moving the scuffed rock with Lae’zel, the Githyanki Fighter who can be recruited at the very beginning of the game. Once you have a character strong enough to move the scuffed rock, simply select that character and have them move it away.

After moving the rock, you’ll find an ornate chest that contains the following items.

  • Harper’s Map
  • Harper’s Notebook
  • Potion of Speed
  • Agate
  • Ruby
  • Gold

The contents of the ornate chest may have slightly different variations with each playthrough, but you should always get both Harper’s map and Harper’s notebook. These two items will lead you to a hidden cache that contains even more items.

Where to find the scuffed rock

The scuffed rock can be found southwest of the Roadside Cliffs waypoint, near the Nautiloid ship crash site. It is also close to where you can find Astarion for the first time.

Once you’re in the right area, you will need to jump off a cliff to get to the scuffed rock, so expect to take a bit of fall damage. It shouldn't be a problem though. After landing, you’ll need to perform a perception skill check to identify the rock, but this is fairly easy to pass.

And that wraps up our guide on moving the scuffed rock in Baldur’s Gate 3. For more tips on playing Larian’s latest roleplaying game, check out our other guides on the game such as picking locks and dual-wielding weapons.
