There's more to that stained glass window.

Baldur's Gate 3 Dawnmaster's Crest Stained Window

Upon entering the western mountain region in Baldur’s Gate 3, you’ll eventually head north and find the Rosymorn Monastery, crawling with demon cats and drunk Kobolds. On the upper floors of the Monastery is a room with a stained glass window on the ground which displays the four Dawnmasters – the notable keepers of the Monastery. Is this just fancy decor, or could there be a secret they’re guarding? Keep reading to learn how to solve the Stained Glass puzzle and get the Dawnmaster’s Crest in Baldur’s Gate 3.

How to Solve the Stained Glass Puzzle and Get the Dawnmaster’s Crest in BG3

To get the Dawnmaster’s Crest, you’ll need to place the four ceremonial weapons upon their respective pedestals, all of which can be found around the Monastery. Each weapon must be placed in front of the corresponding Dawnmaster, triggering the weapon and crystals around it to glow a bright blue.

Here’s how to get each Ceremonial weapon and solve the Stained Glass puzzle:

1) Ceremonial Longsword Location

The Ceremonial Longsword is the easiest of the bunch, as it’s already sitting in its rightful place upon entering the room. You won’t have to worry about this weapon, though you’ll notice it loses its glow once removed from the pedestal or placed on a different one, indicating that each weapon has a specific resting spot.

2) Ceremonial Battleaxe Location

The Ceremonial Battleaxe sits at the (X:103, Y:45) coordinates on the same floor as the stained glass.

Head south from the stained glass until you reach a large hole in the floor. Jump over the hole and walk east to find a locked enchanted door. Lockpick the door and either jump over the beds or destroy them to enter the room.

  • Alternatively, you can jump through the southeast window in the stained glass room and follow the path outside, which leads to the window of the room with the Battleaxe.

You’ll find the Ceremonial Battleaxe on the ground next to a Guardian of Faith sentry, which won’t give up the axe without a fight. Luckily, it’s easy to dispose of as long as you stand outside of its radiant circle. I just kept my distance and pelted it with arrows until it fell apart.

3) Ceremonial Warhammer Location

The Ceremonial Warhammer is resting inside the Eagle’s nest atop the roof of the Monastery. You’ll find it at the (X:80, Y:40) coordinates.

Like the Battleaxe, the Warhammer can’t be taken without a fight unless you’re stealthy enough to grab it without the Eagle mother noticing. Unfortunately, stealth and diplomacy didn’t work in my favor, and I was forced to kill the Eagles to get the axe. Quite a stain on my Druid’s animal-loving record but, hey, sometimes sacrifices have to be made.

4) Rusty Mace Location

The last weapon isn’t as ceremonious as the other three but rather quite worn. The Rusty Mace is located on the ground floor of the Monastery at the (X:87, Y:32) coordinates next to a skeleton.

If you’ve opened the main entrance of the Monastery, head through it towards the north until you reach a large ‘Blood of Lathander’ statue. Head east, and you’ll find an oak door on your right. The Rusty Mace is inside that room.

  • Alternatively, you can enter the room by destroying the cracked wall on the eastern side. The cracked wall can be accessed by heading down a stairway from the rooftop around the Eagle’s nest. You’ll know you’re in the right area if you find the talking bust yelling at you.

5) How to Place the Ceremonial Weapons

The Ceremonial weapons just need to be placed on the correct pedestals, as indicated by the stained glass on the ground. You can simply select the weapons in your inventory, click Throw, and aim for the pedestals.

  • Ceremonial Longsword – northwest pedestal
  • Ceremonial Battleaxe – southwest pedestal
  • Ceremonial Warhammer – northeast pedestal
  • Rusty Mace – southeast pedestal

Once the weapons are placed, a secret opening in the wall will be revealed on the north side of the room with a pouch inside. Inside the pouch is the Dawnmaster’s Crest.
