What to do with the Guardian of Faith in BG3

The Guardian of Faith is a level four Conjuration spell you can find in this game. It appears in the game as a floating, spectral, glowing knight of sorts with a sword and shield. Yes, the Guardian of Faith is strictly a summon and not an actual enemy type or NPC character you’ll find in the game. However, it is possible to have this summon as an ally or enemy in the game.

You can unlock the Guardian of Faith as an ally by learning the level four spell, which is only available to the Clerics and Bards. You’ll need one of those classes to earn it. When you summon the Guardian of Faith, it will last 10 turns or until its 60 hit points run out. Each time it damages a foe, the catch is it loses the same health itself. Fortunately, it makes up for that with its strong 20 Radiant damage and 3-meter range.

Where to find the Guardian of Faith Location in BG3

It is possible to find the Guardian of Faith as a powerful foe early in BG3. You can find it at the Rosymorn Monastery in Act 1. Since it is a summon, it will not grant the player any experience or items upon defeat. As such, you might be wondering what the point of encountering it here even is, especially with its hefty 60 hit points.

The reason you want to defeat it is to get the key behind it to unlock the Blood of Lathander mace. This is by far the best mace in the game. You’ll want to get this weapon since it constantly exudes light, blinds foes, has the powerful Sunbeam spell, and can even heal the user.

Baldur’s Gate 3 is available now for PS5, Xbox Series X/S, and PC.
