Where to Find the Ceremonial Weapons and Solve the Stained Glass Puzzle 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.

Obtaining the Dawnmaster’s Crest is an extremely important step in the “Find the Blood of Lathander” questline. If you don’t yet have the quest, you can start it by exploring the lower sections of the Rosymorn Monastery, specifically around the large statue located near the main entrance.

Stained-Glass Window Location

To find the room with the Stained Glass window, you’ll need to reach the upper floors of the Rosymorn Monastery. The easiest route would be through the boarded-up hole in the wall near the Rosymorn Monastery waypoint.

Jump up the cliff side and head towards the Monastery. Break the wooden boards off by attacking them, but be careful – the next room is filled with Gremishkas. Once you’ve killed them all, head through the large double doors on the east side of the room and follow the path north. You’ll find the room with the Stained Glass window. See the map below for its location:

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.

Tip:

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.

Tip:

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.

How to Place the Ceremonial Weapons and Get the Dawnmaster Crest in BG3

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: Place on the northwest pedestal.
  • Ceremonial Battleaxe: Place on the southwest pedestal.
  • Ceremonial Warhammer: Place on the northeast pedestal.
  • Rusty Mace: Place on the 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.

What to Do With the Dawnmaster’s Crest in BG3

Now that you’ve got your hands on the Dawnmaster’s Crest, it’s time to take it to its rightful spot underneath the Rosymorn Monastery to get the Blood of Lathander.

To obtain the Blood of Lathander weapon in the Blood of Lathander quest, acquiring the Dawnmaster’s Crest is crucial. Without it, there’s a risk of triggering a trap while attempting to take the Blood of Lathander mace. Players can save before the attempt to witness the chamber’s destruction, reload, and claim the prize. There’s also the option to intentionally trigger and disarm the trap, showcasing Baldur’s Gate 3’s freedom for players to explore various outcomes.
