Best way to use Abyss Beckoners gloves in BG3

The basic function of the Abyscc Beckoners is to protect the wearer summon from all effects other than Psychic. However, the summon has to pass a Wisdom Saving Throw, which determines the next step of combat.

If the throw passes, the summon will not be driven mad and will only attack the enemies. On the other hand, if the Wisom Saving Throw fails, the summon will become mad and not only fight the enemies but also attack the allies who are stationed nearer to it. But you don’t have to worry, as we have some tips and tricks that will help you effectively use the gloves.

  • The more throws you have, the higher the risk of failing that throw will be. To counter that, avoid using Wisdom Saving Throw by all means. In the case of the Abyss Beckoners in Baldur’s Gate 3, keep them in inventory, but don’t wear them until combat.
  • During combat, put your allies scattered and away from the wearer’s position. Get near the enemies and put your summon in the middle of them. This will make sure that the summon attacks the enemies even if the throw fails.
  • Don’t forget to take off your gloves so that the summon can vanish. If the summon is mad and your allies gather back up to the wearer, the summon attacks them even after combat. Take them off and only use them when combat is near or started.

Best Summons to use while wearing the Abyss Beckoners
