How To Get And Use Spider Egg Sac In Baldur’s Gate 3

Create an army of Spiderlings of your own in Baldur's Gate 3.

Spider Egg Sac is a miscellaneous item in Baldur’s Gate 3 that is handy during difficult situations. This elusive item is difficult to find and more difficult to obtain unless you believe in saving scumming. It produces five young spiders that follow your commands and attack your enemies on sight. 

With this guide, you will easily find and efficiently utilize the Spider Egg Sac in Baldur’s Gate 3. This is a single-use item, which makes it even more precious. 

Spider Egg Sac Location in Baldur’s Gate 3

Spider Egg Sac is hidden in plain sight. Fast travel to the Roadside Cliffs waypoint and turn right. Go up until you come across a broken blue cart. Keep following the path until you reach the entrance of the Druid Grove. This is where you first fought the goblins.

Opposite the entrance is a rock (X: 175, Y: 412) you can jump on. Go Northeast to find a cragged rock. Climb it to find another ladder leading upwards. The game will automatically check religion if you interact with the skeleton.

Move past the skeleton to find a strange dirt mound (X: 150, Y: 360). Another perception check will be done, and upon completion, it will be revealed as a Rocky Crevice.

After you spot the Rocky Crevice, you will need to perform a Perception Check to reveal the spiders and the Spider Egg Sac in BG3 with the help of a character that excels in Wisdom. We recommend using Shadowheart, as her high wisdom stats will give you a better chance of succeeding.

Now, you need to perform the ‘Animal Handling Check (DC 15)’, which will calm the spiders with the help of a character high in Wisdom. Be careful while attempting this check because if you fail, the option will no longer be available. If you failed the previous check, you can opt for Deception (DC 15).

After passing this check, you must perform another before taking the Spider Egg Sac in Baldur’s Gate 3. This is the ‘Sleight of Hand Check (DC 15)’ that requires someone with high Dexterity. If the check is successful, you will put your hand in and snatch a bag from the Rocky crevice.

Open the bag to obtain some gold and Spider Egg Sac. 

How to use the Spider Egg Sac

In Baldur’s Gate 3, you can use Spider Egg Sac in two ways: drop it or throw it on the ground. To do both, open your inventory and right-click on Spider Egg Sac. Select the option you want, and your character will drop or throw the egg at your command.


Spider Egg Sac is a heavy item (6kg). We recommend sending it to camp and only taking it out when needed.

The next thing you need to do is hit the egg with a ranged weapon. Don’t use Fire, Acid, or Lightning arrows; they will kill the Crag Spiders immediately. These spiders have only 6HP and can’t survive an explosion.

This item is best used against enemies or fights where you are seriously outnumbered. One such fight is against True Soul Nere, where you must go against around 10+ enemies if you don’t play your cards right. Luckily, none of the enemies use AoE attacks, making it favorable to use the Crag Spiders.

These Spiders do 1d4 damage on each bite and keep the enemies occupied. They also cause the enemies to lose their turns, giving you the upper hand while handling a mob.

However, these spiders will leave you once you are killed or if you take a long rest. They won’t follow you back to camp as companions, so summon them wisely.
