Is there a way for Mage Hand to pick up objects and bring them to you? If there is I haven't been able to find it, and that was always one of the biggest reasons to have a Mage Hand, is to manipulate objects and to carry them.

Yes please! I've found mage hand to be almost useless.

+1, I thought that this would be addressed at this point considering how much attention has been given to other, substantially more insignificant issues.


I don't want to fall to bits 'cos of excess existential thought.

With mage hand as the active character, click and drag an object towards you. It can only move so far per drag, so you might have to do it multiple times.

Follow-up questions,

- is there a reason Mage Hand can't open unlocked chests and doors?
- is there a way to give my Mage Hand items to throw, like Void/Spiked/Caustic Bulbs?

+1 Yes please, i was able to use Mage Hand in many utility ways (open, pull, push button, throw, trigger etc) during tabletop sessions - never to shove or attack though, as others highlighted earlier posts there are other pushing/attack spells for that - and i would really like to have those options for Mage Hand in bg3 as well

Mage hand is great for things like pushing buttons. Or activating traps from a distance. Or pulling levels, etc. Sure, you can use it to put a potion near the enemy or get a key. Shove is fun, but it is not what mage hand should do.

Yeah the fact that we can't push buttons or pull levers with Mage Hand right now is . . . perplexing.
