When successfully placed on their respective altars, they unveil the coveted Dawnmaster’s Crest. This crest is the key to accessing a legendary weapon in the game.

The Ceremonial Warhammer can be found in a perilous location within the monastery. After exiting the Enchanted Door, players will notice vines adjacent to the door, cascading down from the roof.

  2. Be prepared for any obstacles or creatures that may stand in your way during the ascent.
  3. Upon reaching the rooftop, players will discover a large nest, guarded by eagles and littered with the remains of unfortunate Kobolds.
  4. Inside this nest lies the coveted Ceremonial Warhammer.

Players can choose to distract the eagles using Bard’s song, the Minor Illusion spell, or other similar effects. With the eagles momentarily sidetracked, players can swiftly grab the Ceremonial Warhammer.

Alternatively, using an Invisibility Potion, players can covertly approach and obtain the Ceremonial Warhammer. For a swift escape, a spell like Misty Step can come in handy. For those wanting to maintain a safe distance, Mage Hand can be employed to move the Ceremonial Warhammer, ensuring the party remains out of harm’s way.

Where Is Ceremonial Longsword?

The Ceremonial Longsword is a unique artifact within the Rosymorn Monastery. Unlike the other Baldur’s Gate 3 ceremonial weapons that players must actively seek out and retrieve, the Ceremonial Longsword has already found its resting place.

The Ceremonial Longsword can be found already positioned on Dawnmaster Welkinglory’s pedestal within the monastery. Specifically, for players using the in-game coordinates system, Ceremonial Longsword is located at X:70 Y:77.

Important: Players might be tempted to pick up the Ceremonial Longsword in Baldur’s Gate 3 due to its captivating appearance and assumed power. However, if removed from its pedestal, the weapon loses its signature glow and intrinsic properties, transforming into a standard longsword. It’s crucial to ensure the sword remains undisturbed to preserve its enchantment and successfully solve the monastery’s puzzle.

What Is The Usage Of Ceremonial Weapons In Baldur’s Gate 3?

Within the Stained-Glass puzzle room of the Rosymorn Monastery, there are designated altars meant for each ceremonial weapon. These altars are engraved with inscriptions that serve as clues to correctly match each weapon to its respective pedestal.

  1. Ceremonial Battleaxe is placed on Dawnmaster Vaseid’s Pedestal.
  2. Ceremonial Warhammer goes to Dawnmaster Seed’s Pedestal.
  3. Rusty Mace finds its place on Dawnmaster Stockhold’s Pedestal.
  4. The Ceremonial Longsword, meanwhile, is already set on Dawnmaster Welkinglory’s pedestal and should remain undisturbed.

When each weapon is meticulously positioned on its corresponding altar, a concealed vault within the monastery walls is revealed. This vault contains the illustrious Dawnmaster’s Crest in Baldur’s Gate 3.

Beyond just a reward for solving the puzzle, the Dawnmaster’s Crest is an essential artifact that unlocks one of Baldur’s Gate 3 legendary weapons. I used this crest to delve into the Creche Y’llek and, at its depths in the Inquisitor’s chamber, retrieved the formidable Blood of Lathander Mace.

In conclusion, the depths of Rosymorn Monastery in BG3 offer players a challenge steeped in mystery and allure. While the Baldur’s Gate 3 ceremonial weapons—each a piece of a grander puzzle—glisten with magic, their true power lies in unlocking the Dawnmaster’s Crest. This important artifact paves the way to the BG3’s most legendary weapon, the Blood of Lathander Mace.
