Increase Your Damage!
In Baldur’s Gate 3, you can use the “dip” bonus action on fire and other sources to give yourself an extra bit of damage.
This can give you an edge in combat, but sacraficing a valuable resource, even a bonus action, is not always the best way to go about leveling up your damage per round.
You can Dip your weapon in any source of fire. For this reason, carrying a lit candle around is commonplace. Sometimes you need to light a fuse and this is an easy solution. Still, it is minimal bonus damage, and has a short few turn duration.
Weapon coatings are similar. Altho only taking a bonus action, they can last for up to 10 rounds. This is great! even a simple toxin is 1d4 potential more damage per round.
Still, giving up that bonus action can be tough.
Well, you don’t have to. There are 4 toxins in the game simple toxin, serpent fang toxin, wyvern toxin, and purple worm toxin, Purple worm being the strongest. If you throw these on the ground INSTEAD of coating your weapon in or before combat, you will get an infinite buff on your weapon. Only being removed on long rest.
I placed down one of each of the toxins in my camp during testing, and they did not dissappear over a long rest. I simply had to dip my weapon in them before leaving my camp.
Curiously, you can also wash your weapon clean with a pool of water. If you want to knock someone out and not kill them “minsc” this is probably an important note.
