The Amulet of Greater Health in Baldur’s Gate 3 is a rare and powerful item that boosts the wearer’s Constitution to 23, making them nearly invincible. It also provides an advantage on Constitution Saving Throws Checks.

Similar to obtaining any of the best BG3 amulets, getting the Amulet of Greater Health is challenging as it’s hidden in the House of Hope archives, protected by traps and guards. Neutralizing the Archivist is a common tactic to avoid the guards and claim the amulet due to its significant benefits.

2. Khalid’s Gift

Best Jaheira Amulet

Khalid’s Gift is a rare amulet in Baldur’s Gate 3, specifically valuable for Jaheira’s build. When she wears it, the amulet grants her immunity to curses and boosts her wisdom by one point, up to a maximum of 21.

To obtain Khalid’s Gift, players should visit Jaheira’s Sanctuary in Act 3. There, they’ll discover a desk near the entrance with a Pin Slot puzzle. To solve it, they need the Harp Pin, which can be obtained from one of Jaheira’s children, Tate. With the Harp Pin, they can unlock the hidden area containing Khalid’s Gift.

3. Scarab of Protection

Best Defensive Amulet

The Scarab of Protection is a legendary amulet in Baldur’s Gate 3, known for its powerful defensive abilities. It is one of the more sought-after amulets due to its ability to protect against both arcane and undead threats.

It offers the following two main benefits:

  • Spell Protection: It grants the wearer an advantage against magic spells, making them more resistant to their effects.
  • Necromantic Evasion: This unique ability helps the wearer evade necromancy spells and magic used by undead enemies.

4. Amulet of The Devout

Best Cleric Amulet

The Amulet of the Devout is a rare and powerful item, particularly valuable for Clerics in Baldur’s Gate 3. This is one of the best BG3 amulets that enhances spell casting with a +2 bonus to Spell Save DC, making Cleric spells more potent and difficult for enemies to resist. Additionally, it grants an extra use of the Channel Ability for Clerics.

To obtain the Amulet of the Devout, players must journey to the Stormshore Tabernacle in the eastern part of BG3 and find it in a chest within the sanctified basement.

5. The Spectator Eyes

Best Necromancy Amulet

The Spectator Eyes is a rare amulet in Baldur’s Gate 3, highly valued by magic users. It grants access to two Level 3 Necromancy Spells: “Ray of Fear” and “Wounding Ray,” providing a strategic advantage by freeing up spell slots.

To find Spectator Eyes, players must explore into the Underdark, west of the Selunite Temple, where they’ll encounter a petrified Drow assembly. The amulet’s guardian, The Spectator, a formidable foe, awaits at coordinates (X:123 Y:-248). Those who defeat it will obtain The Spectator Eyes.

6. Unflinching Protector Amulet

Best Protection Amulet

The Unflinching Protector in BG3 easily comes in the list of the best amulets because it is a rare and unique item designed for defense. It features the “Unflinching Protection” enchantment, allowing the wearer to intercept attacks targeting nearby allies. This protective ability can be used once before requiring a short rest to recharge.

7. Fey Semblance Amulet

Best Caster Amulet

The Fey Semblance Amulet in Baldur’s Gate 3 enhances a player’s magical abilities. It provides advantages for saving throws in Intelligence, Wisdom, and Charisma, which helps protect against spells targeting mental faculties.

To obtain Fey Semblance Amulet, players must explore the Lower City of Baldur’s Gate in Act 3, where they can also progress through quests like “Save Vanra” and “Avenge the Hag Survivors.” These quests involve confronting Auntie Ethel and interacting with Hag Survivors, ultimately leading to the acquisition of the Fey Semblance Amulet.

8. Lofty Sorcerer’s Amulet

Best Sorcerer Amulet

The Lofty Sorcerer’s Amulet in Baldur’s Gate 3 is a rare accessory that enhances a sorcerer’s magical abilities. Its enchantment, “Lofty Sorcery,” increases the wearer’s Sorcery Points by 1. This may not seem like a huge deal but trust me, If you use a Sorcerer like Balthazar (My Tav), do not skip this amulet.

9. Tressym Collar

Best Control Amulet

The Tressym Collar in Baldur’s Gate 3 is named after the Tressym creatures, known for their magical resistance and playful nature. This collar allows the wearer to cast the Level 5 Transmutation Spell, Telekinesis, which lets them move objects or creatures with their mind, offering versatility in tough situations.

10. Amulet of Windrider

Best Airborne Amulet

The Amulet of Windrider in Baldur’s Gate 3 grants the wearer two spells. The first, Ride the Winds, is a Level 3 Transmutation spell that allows enhanced mobility or flight using the wind. The second, Gust of Wind, is a Level 2 Evocation spell that summons a forceful gust for various purposes.

To obtain Amulet of Windrider, players must complete the quest “Save Vanra (Help the Hag Survivors)” in the Lower City, which involves dealing with a hag using Hag’s Bane and interacting with Vanra and her mother.

11. Strange Tendril Amulet

Best Crowd Control Amulet

The Strange Tendril Amulet is another of the best amulets in BG3 that allows the wearer to cast the Level 4 Conjuration spell, Evard’s Black Tentacles.

To obtain Strange Tendril Amulet, players must visit the House of Healing, where a hidden door near the backpack area can be revealed by pressing a button on its right side. Inside this secret area, a wooden chest holds the amulet along with other valuable items.

12. Necklace of Elemental Augmentation

Best Elemental Damage Amulet

In Baldur’s Gate 3, the Necklace of Elemental Augmentation enhances elemental Cantrips for spellcasters. It allows them to add their Spellcasting Modifier to Acid, Cold, Fire, Lightning, or Thunder damage Cantrips, making them more powerful.

You can find the Necklace of Elemental Augmentation in Act 2 in the Githyanki Creche’s room with the astral portal and again in Act 3 near the Open Hand Monastery at a shipwreck. Additionally, it amplifies damage from elemental effects in some of the best magical items like the Phalar Aluve.
