Baldur’s Gate 3 Legendary Armor Locations Guide

Legendary armor in Baldur's Gate 3 can provide amazing bonuses while protecting you from harm so here are the locations for you to find them.

Legendary equipment in Baldur’s Gate 3 is expectedly the best you can find for your characters. Having a higher number of enchantments, AC, damage, or other skill bonuses, by the time you finish the game you should have a decent number of legendaries equipped on your party members. While there are a lot of legendary weapons in Baldur’s Gate 3, the amount of legendary armor options is quite limited.

However, that hasn’t stopped us from compiling a list of all the Baldur’s Gate 3 Legendary Armor and their locations so you can collect them easily.

  • Prime Aegis of Fire: Reduces all incoming damage by 3 and you gain resistance to fire damage.
  • Unlocks the Fly spell for the wearer.

Easily one of the best armors in BG3, Helldusk Armor requires you to anger Raphael and steal the Orphic Hammer or destroy your contract in House of Hope. Defeat Raphael and he will drop the Helldusk armor set. The best thing about this armor is that it requires no proficiency to wear.

Mask of the Shapeshifter

This is a unique helmet that is only available as a reward for purchasing the Deluxe Edition of Baldur’s Gate 3. Mask of the Shapeshifter is an easter egg from Divinity Original Sin games. While the mask doesn’t provide any major stat bonuses, it does allow the wearer to use the Shapeshift spell. Using the spell you can shapeshift into any other playable race in BG3. Quite handy if you wanna sneak into some areas, presenting yourself as an ally race.
