Where to find a shovel - Baldur’s Gate 3
There are a few ways to acquire a shovel in Baldur’s Gate 3. The easiest and earliest way to do so is on the Wilderness path not far from the Ravaged Beach that you wash up on after the game’s dramatic opening. You’ll find a mound of dirt along the path, and there is a shovel sticking out of it. Simply grab the shovel and add it to your inventory. The exact coordinates for the shovel are X: 204, Y: 386. You can also purchase a shovel from merchants, such as the one in the Druid Grove.
Once you have a shovel in your inventory, it’s pretty easy to use. Simply click on a mound of dirt in the world and you’ll whip the shovel out and start digging, pulling out the treasure within seconds. There’s no need to equip it or upgrade it — just keep it in the inventory of the person you want to do the digging. Give it a shot on the mound in which you found the shovel to score some silver ingots and gold.
