How To Move The Scuffed Rock In Baldur’s Gate 3

A Scuffed Rock near the Nautiloid crash site in Baldur’s Gate 3 covers buried loot that you can get if you have the Strength to move the large stone.

Act 1 of Baldur’s Gate 3 gives access to many areas to explore after the Nautiloid crashes, including where some loot can be found underneath the sandy beach under a Scuffed Rock you need to move. This heavy stone doesn’t budge easily, though, and it takes a character with enough athletic ability to push the boulder out of the way. The skill of moving the scuffed rock depends on certain stats for you or a party member.

Traveling along the beaches near the Nautiloid wreck will eventually lead you toward the scuffed rock, but your character needs a high enough Perception to spot the blocked treasure. If you created a custom character in Baldur’s Gate 3, your Perception is tied to how high you made your Wisdom Ability Score. Certain racial options give you a free point or two towards Wisdom, so explore the options available.

Baldur's Gate 3 Moving the Scuffed Rock with a High Strength Character

The only way to move the scuffed rock in Baldur’s Gate 3 is to have a Strength Ability Score of 13 or higher, either as your character or through anyone else in your party. In the same way, you could improve your Wisdom; races give points to Ability Scores. Typically, the Fighter and Barbarian tend to favor characters with high Strength, but there are no bonuses that come from picking these classes.

Moving the scuffed rock requires either you or one of your party members to have a Strength score of 13 or higher, so make sure to recruit a character like Lae’Zel or Shadowheart beforehand.

Thankfully, you do not have to use your character’s stats alone to move the rock, as any of your party members with enough Strength can move the stone. For example, Lae’Zel is a Fighter with Strength well above 13, so she can move the boulder on her own. Those who do not want to make a custom avatar should pick an origin character in Baldur’s Gate 3 with pre-built stats to overcome obstacles like this.

Removing the scuffed rock by clicking on the object and dragging it away reveals an Ornate Chest that doesn’t have any traps preventing you from opening it immediately. Inside is a Harper’s Notebook, along with some Gold and other loot. This reward for exploring the first large area in Baldur’s Gate 3 poses challenges like moving the scuffed rock to teach you to rely on the strengths of your new companions.
