Now, the answer to the question asked above is no. No, you can not use the rope in Baldur’s Gate 3. The best you can do with the rope is sell it to the vendors for a single piece of gold which is not much. However, you can throw the rope just as you would with any other item. Other than that, the rope serves no purpose in BG3.

How The Rope Could Have Been Used In Baldur’s Gate 3

The rope in Baldur’s Gate 3 could have served a much larger purpose than it has been assigned. The game should have allowed the players to use the rope to climb up and down vertically or made it to where you could have used the rope to tie up other creatures. Furthermore, the rope could have had many other uses.

What About The Rope Trick Spell

Well, the Rope Trick Spell is an entirely different matter. It essentially creates a magical rope that allows specific-sized characters to travel into a different dimension where they can be safe from dangers for a moment. It is a level 2 spell that takes up a level 2 slot and can be used as an action by Wizards.

Alternatives To Climb Up And Down In BG3

Now if you are not allowed to use the rope to climb up and down, then you can use spells. You can use the level 5 Fly Spell with a Wizard, Sorcerer, or Warlock to fly vertically upwards toward your objective. And if the distance you want to climb is not much, you can use the Jump action. The Jump action’s capabilities come from the character’s physical attributes, which means that the stronger the character, the higher they jump. 

Furthermore, if you want to descend from a dangerous distance, you can use the Feather Fall spell, eliminating fall damage. Wizards, Sorcerers, Bards, Fighters, or Rogues can cast this spell.

And with that, the BG3 Rope guide comes to an end. You were enlightened about the uses of rope in Baldur’s Gate 3, of which there are none, and were given alternatives to climbing up and down in BG3.
