Despite being released some time ago, Baldur's Gate 3 continues to captivate players with its dynamic and open-ended gameplay, offering endless possibilities within its expansive campaign.

Fracture, a renowned YouTuber celebrated for completing Baldur's Gate 3 in unconventional ways, has achieved a remarkable feat by conquering the game's challenging Honor Mode using only the seemingly lacklustre True Strike spell.

In a YouTube video documenting this extraordinary accomplishment, Fracture revealed, "In this run, I didn't use explosives, necrotic corpse shenanigans, or offensive spells of any kind other than the all-powerful, unstoppable True Strike."

The key to Fracture's success lies in the strategic use of a specific magical item: the Boots of Stormy Clamour. These boots, triggered when casting a spell on a hostile creature, inflict a condition called Reverberation.

With careful application, enemies accumulate Reverberation stacks, eventually succumbing to minimal thunder damage over time — a methodical approach perfectly complemented by the True Strike spell.

For those curious about Fracture's remarkable achievement, the full video provides insight into the meticulous strategy employed to navigate through Baldur's Gate 3's formidable challenges.

In other Baldur's Gate 3 developments, patch 6 has recently been released, introducing "new and randomised kisses for every romantic partner." Additionally, the update brings new idle animations for companion characters in camp, enriching the already immersive experience of interacting with the game's diverse cast.

Notably, Legendary Actions, special moves for select bosses, have been integrated into Honor Mode, further enhancing the game's depth and challenge.
