Equipping it automatically increases the wearer’s Constitution score to 23 – and therefore will also increase the wearer’s total hit points, as well. This item works best with either tank or melee DPS builds, as they are your front line fighters and will get the best benefits out of this necklace.

How to Get Amulet of Greater Health in Baldur’s Gate 3
The Amulet of Greater Health can be found in the Archives at the House of Hope. Typically, if you’ve chosen not to make a deal with Raphael at this point in the game, your main goal in breaking into his house is to find and successfully take the Orphic Hammer. The Hammer will be in the same room as the Amulet of Greater Health and the Gauntlets of Hill Giant Strength. Each piece will be in a different display area in a different part of the room.
Be aware that taking the Hammer will trigger alarms and send Raphael on his way back to the House of Hope for a confrontation. When you’re ready, you’ll want to grab all three pieces of gear at the same time!
Other Notable Loot in the House of Hope:
- Helldusk Helmet
- Helldusk Gloves
- Helldusk Armour
- Staff of Spellpower
- Gauntlets of Hill Giant Strength
- Orphic Hammer
- Gloves of Soul Catching
When you’re done exploring the House of Hope and ready to finally steal the Amulet of Greater Health, it’s best to unlock your party members from the group. The Archivist has no problem with any of you viewing the artifacts, so find all three (they’re on full display and should be easy to spot). The Amulet of Greater Health specifically is on the pedestal on the left, or southern corner, of the room. Then I recommend placing one party member each in front of each one.
When everyone is in place, click between characters and steal each of them one by one. You might think to use Invisibility potions or spells here to conceal your intentions like I did, but they really don’t do you any good. Taking the items appears to trigger something on the pedestals and your character will immediately become visible again, so there is really no need to bother with sneaking around.
Once you’ve stolen all three items, group your team back up and get ready for a fight. As you open the doors to head back out of the Archives you’ll find yourself under attack. But it’s just the small fry so far – Raphael is on his way, but his fight won’t trigger until you attempt to exit the House via the portal. However, if you agreed to help Hope out when you first met her upon arrival, it is highly recommended that you first head straight down the long passageway to her cell in order to break her out now.
