How to Enter Burrow Holes and Rocky Crevice in Baldur’s Gate 3

These are holes in the ground (or sometimes in walls) that you will find from time to time. They have an icon indicating that they should be interactable, but – depending on your character – that often won’t be the case. So why is that? Well, the holes themselves are small and tight. This means that they require a small character (or something similar) that can squeeze through them. So if your Main Character is not a member of one of the short races (Dwarves, Gnomes, and Halflings), they will be able to enter each one of these. But in case they are not, you will need to figure out another solution here.

Luckily, Baldur’s Gate 3 offers a lot of tools for players to employ when problem solving. So here are a couple of quick and easy ways that you can do this. To start with, you can use the Mask of the Shapeshifter – a Digital Deluxe Edition bonus item – to change your shape into a Dwarves, Gnomes, or Halflings. Then you can simply squeeze through the small opening. And if you don’t have this item, you can also use Shadowheart’s Change Self spell to achieve the same effect. There is also the option to use Mage Hand. Being a Githyanki, Lae’zel comes with this spell. There are probably other methods to do this as well, but these are the ones that we have figured out so far. Special thanks to Anna for pointing out that you can also use Druid’s Wildshape to transform into a cat and enter that way, too.

    Also if your character is a Level 2+ druid, you should be able to squeeze through while wildshaped as a cat.

    Unless it is a glitch, I found a burrow hole in shattered sanctum that is too small for even a gnome. But a mage hand was able to pass through.
