Divinity Original Sin 2: Artefacts of the Tyrant Guide
There are many unique items in Divinity: Original Sin 2 that can be found through accomplishing special quests. These items will bestow upon you specific stat increases and buffs. And one of the most sought out items in the game is the armor set of Braccus Rex.
This set can be obtained by completing the Artefacts of the Tyrant quest that requires you gather all five missing pieces of the armor hidden in various places around the game. This Artefacts of the Tyrant guide will help you locate all of them without too much trouble.
How to Get the Armor Set of Braccus Rex in Divinity: Original Sin 2
Armor Piece 1: Tyrant's Stride
The first piece of the Braccus Rex set can be found in the Fort Joy prison. You will find the Ancient Passage at coordinates x:319 z:671, right where you complete the Withermoore's Soul Jar quest. Withermoore will reveal to you the exact location of the lever on the main floor of Fort Joy.
When you get inside the Ancient Passage, just follow the trail and turn left until you end up at the feet of the statue. You will need to have 15 Wits in order to interact with the statue -- or you cna use Peace of Mind to increase your Wits for three turns by four points.
As a result, the statue will drop the leggings of Braccus Rex, your first piece of armor in the Artefacts of the Tyrant quest line.
Armor Piece 2: Corrupted Tyrant's Helm
Go to the travel point in Hollowed Marshes (Ruined Castle), where you need to save Gareth from magisters (at coordinates x:467 z:229) during the Most Dangerous When Cornered quest.
Enter the Decrepit Ruins and fight Magister Sang. After that, look around for a lever that opens the way into the Armory of Braccus Rex. There is a curse on the lever that can be lifted using the Bless skill.
Inside the Armory, you will see the Shrine of Braccus Rex. Use your character that has a Source point in order to interact with the Shrine. If you do so, the Shrine will drop the Corrupted Tyrant's Helm.
Armor Piece 3: The Hands of the Tyrant
THe next piece of the armor set isn't too far away from the previous piece. Travel to Hollowed Marshes (Dragon's Beach). Enter the Braccus Rex's Tower and proceed to Braccus Rex's Tomb. You can easily find the location of the Tomb by following these coordinates x:589 y:678.
There are two coffins inside the Tomb, one of which is trapped, so you will need to have at least 18 Strength to be able to lift it. And make sure to use a trap disarm kit to remove the poison trap. Inside the coffin, you will find the gloves of Braccus Rex.
Armor Piece 4: Heart of the Tyrant
Outside of Braccus Rex's Tower at coordinates x:508 y:69, you will find a shipwreck and an entrance into the Dark Cavern. This is where you can finish the Vault of Braccus Rex quest and get your second to last piece of the Braccus Rex armor set.
Go all the way through the Cavern to coordinates x:703 y:502 and you will end up at the treasure room, where you can pick up the chest armor of Braccus Rex -- as well as many other cool items (which I'll leave as a surprise).
Armor Piece 5: Tracks of the Tyrant
On the north outside Fort Joy, there is an abandoned tower at coordinates x:426 y:299. The tower is engulfed in electrified steam and the only way to get inside the tower is to use Teleportation.
Loot everything inside the tower, and among all the items you will find the boots of Braccus Rex, which are the final piece required for a complete Braccus Rex armor set and an end to the Artefacts of the Tyrant quest line.
