Players can find the Baldur’s Gate 3 Sword of Justice when they travel to Blighted Village, which is just outside the Druid’s Grove. You must follow the exact way when you reach the village to obtain the Sword of Justice. My steps for finding the sword are as follows:

  1. When you are passing the village, you must head for the bridge, which is quite broken.
  2. Jump from the bridge and go to the nearby barn.
  3. As you approach the barn, you’ll come across a caravan that would look like it was ambushed and surrounded by some of the Hyenas.
  4. Travel by going under the bridge to avoid the Hyenas and head for the trading post.
  5. When you reach the trading post, you will meet with a Paladin of Tyr named “Anders.”
  6. Ander is on a hunt for a devil that has just one horn. Ander has only one request that you must kill the devil, and in return, players with get the Sword of Justice.

The Main Decision 

You must go on the lookout for the devil, who will be located near the trading place when you reach the stream. The devil goes by the name, Karlach, who will beg you to let it go free as he claims he has done nothing wrong. Now, the available choices are that you can either kill Karlach or go and defeat Anders.

Before You Start: When Karlach speaks with Paladin about attacking Andar, remember that Paladin will not break their promise about attacking.

  1. If you continue to be on Andar’s side and kill Karlach, you will gain the sword of Justice.
  2. However, if the players somehow decide that they will kill Andar and spare him, they will have to fight other enemies as well.
  3. All the enemies within the post need to be defeated, which also includes a Paladin who is at Level 4.

Important: It is more beneficial to defeat Andar as you will still get the Sword of Justice, and later on, you will have a chance to get Karlach on your side as well.

If you defeat the Paladin, then you will get an option to recruit it on your side. You must avail of this option as it is quite powerful and bares the following advantages:

  • Possesses Barbarian skills, which can come in handy in battles.
  • Can launch attacks on the Legacy of Avernus.
  • Is the best-suited person who can hold the Sword of Justice.

That wraps up my guide on the Baldur’s Gate 3 Sword of Justice, and further improve your build, check out this guide on the best cantrips available to get the upper hand in battles. However, the weapon and cantrips are not enough to defeat the enemies, so you must go fully prepared and equip the best armor pieces as well.
