From defensive abilities and healing to spell slot restoration and utility abilities, there are many great magic amulets in Baldur’s Gate 3. But I wanted to outline the best ones based on their power and how early you get them. Here are my Top 10 amulets in Baldur’s Gate 3.
What are the Top 10 Best Amulets in Baldur’s Gate 3?
10. Amulet of Misty Step
The Amulet of Misty Step is one of the best early-game amulets. I used it well into Act 2. It grants a simple 30-foot or 18-meter teleport that’s restored on a Short Rest. It’s useful for getting melee characters into range and helping ranged ones retreat. I’ve used it on my Lae’Zel to reach the enemy in Round 1 with Battle Master maneuvers like Menacing or Disarming Attack. Get it from the Gilded Chest in the Defiled Temple area of the Shattered Sanctum.
9. Amulet of Restoration
The Amulet of Restoration is another great early-game sustain item. It lets you cast Healing Word and Mass Healing Word for free once per Short Rest. Anyone can use it, even non-spellcasters. Once you use up both charges, unequip it for a different amulet. I highly recommend pairing this with Wapira’s Crown and Ring of Salving on someone like Shadowheart for a massive burst of healing in and out of combat. Buy the amulet from Derryth in the Myconid village in the Underdark.
8. Amulet of the Harpers
The Amulet of the Harpers is one of the better defensive amulets in BG3. It comes in two parts to protect you from attack rolls and spells that target saving throws. It allows you to cast Shield for free once per Short Rest, giving you +5 AC for a round. Second, you always have Advantage on Wisdom saving throws, which is a powerful boon in the late game when most enemy control spells target this stat. Purchase it from Talli outside of the Last Light Inn
7. Pearl of Power Amulet
Our first spell slot restoration item is the Pearl of Power. It restores one spell slot of your choice as an Action once per Long Rest. It’s an out-of-combat tool you can swap out once spent. I argue that using an Action to regain a spell slot in combat is wasteful and potentially dangerous on higher difficulties. That said, this is a powerful amulet that should always be in your inventory and used daily once you buy it from Omeluum in the Myconid village in the Underdark
6. Fey Semblance Amulet
The Fey Semblance Amulet is a powerful defensive tool against spells. It grants wielders Advantage on Intelligence, Wisdom, and Charisma saving throws. Like the Harpers Amulet, this is a powerful defensive boon in the BG3 late game to fight against enemy spell casters who want to dominate, charm, or frighten your characters. Get it by completing the Help the Hag Survivors quest.
5. Unflinching Protector Amulet
Another defensive option, though this time for harmful attack rolls. Anyone wearing the Unflinching Protector Amulet can use a Reaction to make an enemy attack on an adjacent ally automatically miss once per Short Rest. That said, you must position yourself and be near your squishy characters. Don’t put this on a frontline melee tank. Instead, equip it on a backline character like your Ranger or Rogue near an ally spellcaster.
I gauge the battlefield and block enemies with more powerful single attacks; I don’t block low-damage bow enemies that shoot multiple times. Get it from Ptaris in the Lodge of the Basement Docks after you give the Githyanki Egg to Lady Esther at the Gith Monastery.
4. Spell Savant Amulet
The Spell Savant Amulet is our second spell slot restoration amulet. It’s a passive item tha gives you an extra Level 2 spell slot. This means an extra Lesser Restoration, Spiritual Weapon, Prayer of Healing, Hold Person, Web, and other useful low-level spells. Get it in the High-Security Vault No. 1 in The Counting House in the Lower City of Baldur’s Gate.
3. Amulet of the Devout
One of the most powerful offensive amulets in the game is the Amulet of the Devout. It boosts your spell save DC by +2, which is a massive bonus in terms of D&D 5e rules. Furthermore, if you’re a Cleric or Paladin, you get an additional Channel Ability charge. Overall, any spellcasting class should wear this amulet. Get it in a chest in the Stormshore Tabernacle basement. I recommend bringing a Remove Curse spell if you steal it.
2. Spellcrux Amulet
By far the best spell slot restoration accessory in Baldur’s Gate 3 is the Spellcrux Amulet. It’s similar to the Pearl of Power; it restores any slot but does so with a Bonus Action. This makes it viable in combat, as you can suit your needs and quickly restore that one spell you need to win. It’s dropped by the Warden in Moonrise Towers.
1. Amulet of Greater Health
Out of all these BG3 amulets, the Amulet of Greater Health is universally useful and powerful for all builds and classes. It increases your Constitution to a whopping 23, improving your HP and concentration saving throws for spells. It gives you Advantage on those saving throws, too. Furthermore, I’ve discovered a neat trick for this amule: keep equipping and unequipping it to slowly restore HP to full health. Any party member can exploit this. Find this BG3 amulet in the House of Hope on a pedestal alongside the Gauntlets of Hill Giant Strength.
That concludes my list of the Top 10 best amulets in Baldur’s Gate 3. Now you know which ones to focus and how to get them. For more BG3 guides like this one, check out my Top 10 magic rings and the best magic items.
