Larian Studios knows that Baldur’s Gate 3 is currently plagued with a shared stash bug and it is now looking into it.
The shared stash bug in Baldur’s Gate 3 appeared recently after Patch 3 was released. The developers confirmed in the latest patch notes for Hotfix 7 that they are working on it, but they do not have a timeframe for when players can expect a fix, unfortunately.
“We continue to look at your feedback and are preparing additional hotfixes for issues you’ve reported,” the patch notes read. “This includes an issue with shared items when dismissing companions, which we are aware of and looking into. Thank you for taking the time to tell us about these issues, and thank you for playing Baldur’s Gate 3.”
This issue is actually a combination of both a new feature and a bug at the same time. After Patch 3 was released, dismissing a companion will now see their story-relevant items transferred to the player’s inventory. Unfortunately, some extra items come with it like inside the alchemy pouch, camp supply sack, and keychain.
It is problematic because these extra items will encumber the player and it will take longer to move.
Check out the patch notes for Hotfix 7 below:
Fixed a crash that would occur when listening in on some dialogues during a multiplayer session.
Fixed crashes caused by corrupted item stacks that could occur when unloading a level or moving to a new region.
Fixed a savegame issue when loading into a new region while Withers’ Wardrobe was still loaded in an old region.
Fixed a crash that would occur when loading savegames with potentially invalid items in the inventory.
Fixed a savegame issue relating to traps.
Removed duplicated characters and items caused by items being taken across two different cached levels.
Fixed the preview for the text background option not changing height after you reduce the Dialogue Text Size.
Baldur’s Gate 3 is now available on PC and PS5. Xbox Series X/S version will be available early next year.
