Best Weapons And Armor In Baldur’s Gate 3

Best Weapons and Armor [Image Captured by Me]
Needless to say, armor provides defense and specific buffs to the wearer, while weapons are used to inflict damage on all your foes (sometimes even friends). So let me start off this list of the top 8 weapons and armor you can find in BG3.

1. Spidersilk Armor

Best Stealth Armor

The Spidersilk armor is an uncommon light armor that offers a +1 bonus to Stealth and the advantage of Constitution Saving Throws Checks. It belongs in tier 12AC and is fantastic armor for stealth.

You have to side with the Tieflings in Act 1 and defeat Minthara, who is an evil companion character. Players can find her inside the Shattered Sanctum as one of the Goblin Leaders.

2. Shadow Of Menzoberranzan

Best Stealth Headgear

Helmet- Shadow Of Menzoberranzan [Image Credit: Me]
The Shadow of Menzoberranzan is another uncommon light armor. It is a helmet that offers the Shrouded in Shadow action, which allows you to become invisible, therefore, being ideal for stealth. The spell will break if you attack, take damage, cast a spell, or perform another action, so keep that in mind.

What’s great is that players can obtain this helmet very early in BG3, in Act 1. The Shadow of Menzoberranzan is found in the Underdark during the Protect the Myconid Circle quest. In order to start the quest, players would need to talk to the Sovereign Spaw.

3. Blood Of Lathander

Best Healing Mace

Melee Weapon- Blood Of Lathander [Image Credit goes to Me]
The Blood of Lathender is a legendary melee weapon with a range of 1.5 meters featuring the following abilities:

  • Lathander’s Blessing: After a long rest with hit points at 0, the player regains 2-12 hit points, and allies within a 9-meter radius regain 1-6 hit points.
  • Lathander’s Light: Sheds holy light within a 6-meter radius, blinding enemies unless they succeed in a Constitution saving throw.

The location of this weapon is in Rosymorn Monastery. Players can obtain this weapon during the quest- Find the Blood of Lathander. I personally use this mace with my melee Shadowheart build because of her impeccable synergy with these buffs.

4. Warped Headband of Intellect

Best INT Helmet

The Warped Headband of Intellect is an uncommon helmet that offers stat boosts that are already hinted at in the name, as it increases the player’s Intelligence score to 17 upon wearing it. I would recommend using this helm on Gale because it gives a nice boost to his damage early on.

The Headband is dropped by Lump The Enlightened, an Ogre Mage located in the Blighted Village.

5. Sword Of Justice

Best Defensive Sword

Melee Weapon- Sword of Justice [Image Credit: Me]
The Sword of Justice is a rare two-handed melee weapon with a 1.5-meter range that grants several buffs, including:

  • Tyr’s Protection: Increases a creature’s AC by 2.
  • Cleave Action: Allows you to attack three enemies at once.
  • Pommel Strike Bonus Action: Inflicts Daze on enemies.
  • Lacerate Action: Inflicts Bleed on enemies in addition to damage.

Players can acquire the Sword of Justice in Act 1 during the Hunt The Devil quest (check the Act 1 Checklist for more information). Simply talk to Tiefling Karlach on the Risen Road and investigate the paladins. Upon defeating the leader Anders, players will obtain the sword. I did try to pickpocket the sword, but I was not successful even after 5 saves. You can try obtaining the sword that way as well.

Now. let’s look at the best rings and amulets in Baldur’s Gate 3 that I have found so far. They are mighty enough to be considered as BG3’s best magic items. These accessories are used to provide specific buffs and bonuses to the players.

1. The Spectators Eyes

Best Crowd Control Amulet

Amulet- The Spectators Eyes [Image Captured by Me]
The Spectators Eyes is a very rare amulet that offers the Ray of Fear spell and the Wounding Ray spell. The Ray of Fear is a level 3 spell from the School of Necromancy. This spell has a range of 18 meters and is used to frighten your targets. The Wounding Ray spell is also from the School of Necromancy and is used to deal 2-16 Necrotic damage to the target.

Players can obtain this amulet by looting it from Spectato near the Temple of Selune, located in the Underdark.

2. Sentient Amulet

Best Spells Amulet

The Sentient Amulet is another rare amulet that offers the Shatter spell. Shatter is a level 2 spell from the Evocation school. It has a range of 18 meters and damages all nearby objects and creatures. Creatures that are made of inorganic materials get a disadvantage on their Saving Throw.

This amulet is located in an Adamantine Chest, which is found in Grymforge. Since the name of this amulet is Sentient Amulet, it will actually talk to you once you pick it up, and players will unlock the “Help the Cursed Monk” quest.

3. Fetish of Callarduran Smoothhands

Best Stealth Ring

Ring- Fetish of Callarduran Smoothhands [Image Taken by Me]
The Fetish of Callarduran Smoothland is a rare ring that allows the players to turn Invisible, making it one of the best items in BG3 when it comes to stealth. However, one thing to remember is that the spell will break if players were to attack or take damage.

Players can obtain this ring during the quest- Removing the Parasite. It is looted from a corpse in the location- Grymforge

4. Ring Of Psionic Protection

Best Anti-Illithid Ring

This is a rather interesting one, as it is no secret that the player character is infected with an illithid tadpole. The Ring of Psionic Protection is a rare ring that is used to stop the tadpole from growing but also prevents you from using its power.

The ring can be obtained when players visit the Myconic Colony, which is located in Underdark.

5. Broommother’s Revenge

Best Poison Amulet

The Broommother’s Revenge is an uncommon amulet that drips the wearer’s weapon with poison whenever they are healed. I suggest using it in longer fights, as you will be healing yourself numerous times. Considering this scenario, Broommother’s Revenge can very easily be considered one of Baldur’s Gate 3 best items.

The Broommother’s Revenge amulet is located in Emerald Grove. It is dropped by Kagha.

My Personal Favorite Items In Baldur’s Gate 3

Baldur’s Gate 3 is full of many different kinds of Magical Items. Despite my 80+ hours of experience, I have yet to wield them all with my own hands. Some of them just present themselves naturally, but most are hidden behind demi-gods and ancient puzzles and sometimes only appear after a dialogue session with a rat.

My updated hours on Baldur’s Gate 3 (Steam ID: Ibzie)

I have already stated my opinions on Shadowheart, so obviously, my favorite item on the list is Selune’s Spear of Night. Not only is it a powerhouse of a spear, but the way to get it is so fun that I recommend seeking it out even if you have no use for it.

And with that, my guide on Baldur’s Gate 3 Best Items comes to an end. I hope this guide helped you out. While you are at it, why not read the Baldur’s Gate 3 Best Builds, Best Classes, and All Feats guide as well?
