Spellthief Longbow Location in BG3

You can acquire the Spellthief Longbow by purchasing it from Arron in Emerald Grove.

If you haven’t done so already, your first task is to locate the Druid Grove and successfully defend it against Goblins to gain access. Once that’s accomplished, seek out Arron, the merchant stationed near the entrance to the caves providing refuge to Tieflings and settlers.

The Spellthief itself proves to be a valuable asset during Baldur’s Gate 3’s early game. In addition to boasting decent damage, its special effect, “Arcane Vehemence,” allows the user to regain a Level 1 spell slot (once per Short Rest) when landing a Critical Hit with the weapon.

Keep in mind that the user must have Martial Weapon (or Longbow) proficiency to wield the Spellthief effectively, or they’ll face penalties while it is equipped. Be sure to equip it on a class, companion, or character listed below!
