How To Enter Rosymorn Monastery In Baldur’s Gate 3

This Gith infested area is full of secrets, a legendary weapon, and some cool things to do. Let us help you so you won't end up destroying everything, literally.

Rosymorn Monastery is one of the final pit stops during Act 1 of Baldur’s Gate 3. If you decide to go through the Mountain Pass to follow Lae’zel’s companion quest, this desolate Monastery stands in your way to reach the Shadow Cursed Lands. It also houses Githyanki Creche Y’llek, where you can attempt to cure the parasite.

Even if you find the Rosymorn Monastery, its main door is closed. You need to find a way to get past it. This guide will help you find the entrance into the Monastery and explore its secrets before you venture into Act 2.

Rosymorn Monastery location

The Rosymorn Monastery is found in the Mountain Pass area of the world map. Enter the Mountain Pass, west of Waukeen’s Rest waypoint and north of the Risen Road. Follow the path until you get to the Trielta Crags waypoint. Use the map image below to gain a better understanding of its location.

From here, follow the path northeast. This path leads you toward the Rosymorn Monastery. You will also find Lady Esther near the start of this path who asks you to steal a Githyanki egg.

On your way, you will find a cable car. You need to pass the Strength check to use the Cable car. This is the quickest way of reaching the monastery. If you can’t complete the strength check, you can find a ragged rock nearby that allows you to descend from the cliff safely.

Climb down the cliff and jump over the gap to proceed. The trail ahead leads straight to Rosymorn Monastery.

Enter Rosymorn Monastery in Baldur’s Gate 3

As you approach the monastery, you’ll notice a cutscene where a few Githyanki guards are forcing some Halflings to enter it to meet with their captain.

You can go for the front door once the cutscene ends. The door is locked, and a collapsed portion of the building blocks the path leading to the monastery’s other side. You need to find an alternate way to get in.

To enter the monastery, head to the triangular terrace before the gate. To get to the terrace, head back to the bridge you came from, but this time, descend along the rocky path to the side of it.


An easier way to enter the monastery is to jump through the broken window to the left of the main gate. This will lead you to the wine cellar. From here, you can explore the whole monastery easily.

Once you’re here, proceed forward along this small ledge to the other side. Once the ledge ends, you can climb the knotted vines to reach the top.

Here, you can find the path to enter Rosymorn Monastery and its basement. You need to climb the vine next to the window and get to the second floor of the monastery. Or jump on the broken staircase to get to the second floor.

From the second floor, follow the path to the Stained-Glass Window Room. One of the windows in this room behind the altar is broken. Climb out of this window.

From here, jump down. Use the Feather Fall spell to reduce damage. After you reach the bottom floor, head to the center of the monastery and interact with the lever to open the Monastery doors, allowing you to enter from the front door.

Baldur’s Gate 3: Rosymorn Monastery Walkthrough

Rosymorn Monastery has a plethora of activities you can complete. From quests and boss fights to intricate puzzles and more, there is a lot of ground to cover here apart from the Githyanki Warrior quest.

Ceremonial Weapons puzzle

As you make your way to the upper floor of the Rosymorn Monastery, you will come up to a room with a stained-glass window showing 4 knights/clerics. There are four altars in the Stained-Glass Window room.

You need to place weapons on these altars to open a secret compartment in this room. One weapon is already placed on the altar, and you must find and place the rest of the Ceremonial weapons. This will allow you to obtain the Dawnmaster’s crest, an important trinket to obtain a legendary weapon.

Blood of Lathander Mace

The first quest that you can take in Rosymorn Monastery is to find the legendary Blood of Lathander Mace.

With the Dawnmaster’s Crest in hand, make your way into Githyanki Creche Y’llek through the monastery basement. You need to have Lae’zel on your team to make it happen, or the whole creche will turn hostile. Now, enter the Inquisitor’s chamber and solve the statue puzzle. This will lead you to another secret area where you must hit three glowing crystals to deactivate the traps.

Now insert the Dawnmaster’s Crest on the altar panel, revealing the Blood of Lathander mace. Grab it and make sure to equip it on any of your companions who are proficient with Maces. Blood of Lanthander is extremely useful in Act 2 and even beyond, thanks to its ability to blind nearby undead and fiend enemies.

Access the Rosymorn Trail

Use the Rosymorn trail to access several side quests including a quest where you must steal a Githyanki Egg. The quest can be picked up from Lady Esther.


If you follow Lae’zel’s story, we strongly recommend against this side quest, and you will get massive disapproval from her.

You can get the egg peacefully by talking to Varsh Ko’kuu, who is the hatchery guard. You need to persuade or intimidate the guard to get the egg. If not, you must attack and kill every Githyanki in the hatchery to get an egg for yourself.

The Rosymorn trail also lets you go to the Underdark, ultimately leading you to the Last Light Inn.

How to Defeat the Guardian of Faith

Fighting the Guardian of Faith is another task you can complete at the Rosymorn Monastery. The Guardian is an irrefutably tough enemy. To reach him, exit the monastery from the main door.

Directly in front of you, you’ll find some rocks you can climb down. Next, jump across the gap and climb up the knotted vines directly before you. As you climb up, you’ll find a flight of broken stairs to your left. Jump on them and then use them to get on top.

Once you’re at the top, head left until you find a pair of closed double doors. Open the doors and head through them, then take an immediate right. Lockpick the door to open it and then proceed to find the Guardian of Faith in the middle of the room.

The Guardian has a gold circle around him, and to deal damage, you must be standing in it. You’ll also be vulnerable to his attacks when you’re in that circle.

Slowly chip away at his health until he is dead, and keep the tankiest characters of your party at the very front so they can absorb most of the damage. Killing the Guardian rewards you with the Ceremonial Battleaxe, which you can use to solve the Ceremonial weapons puzzle.

Activate the Solar Lance

After you’ve acquired the Blood of Lathander, you can replace the rusty mace found on the altar in the stained-glass window area. This will activate the solar-powered lance on top of the Monastery. The crystal-tipped lance was set up to prevent the Blood of Lathander from falling into the wrong hands.

However, this mechanism is broken, and you can’t use or interact with the solar lance at the moment.
