Outlander is a Background in Baldur's Gate 3. Backgrounds are special traits or expertises that affect the starting Proficiencies the player has and also add two bonus background features. Backgrounds may also decide how your character be treated by certain NPCs, and how can they handle certain situations.

      In Act 2: Outlander gets Inspiration for getting to Moonlight Towers WITHOUT ANY protection. No buff from Isobel, no Moonlantern. You cannot enter the area of the effect of one, and you cannot equip or pick up a Moonlantern. Entering Last Light, seems to be okay. Basically, bum rush with a ton of potions, and Elixir of Necrotic Resistance. Act 2: Enter the Oubliette, doesn't matter how - you can get both of these from going towards the Baldurs Gate exit and proceeding anyways. This will throw you into the Oubliette, AND get you into Moonrise potentially without the Moonlantern; above restrictions still apply.

        To get "Walking on Air", simply interact with the mushroom circle used for teleportation found Ethel's lair.
