How to Get Bhaalist Gloves in Baldur’s Gate 3

You can only get the Bhaalist Gloves in Baldur’s Gate 3 by discovering the Murder Tribunal and choosing to side with Bhaal by becoming an Unholy Assassin. Doing so will unlock a merchant named Echo of Abazigal, who will have the Bhaalist Gloves and other unique items for sale. Discovering the Murder Tribunal is part of the quest-line you follow in order to confront Orin and gain her Netherstone. Orin herself also drops some good loot, including Bloodthirst and Crimson Mischief.

You can start the search for Orin in one of two ways. Either defeat Gortash first and she’ll give you the location and password for the discovering the Tribunal. Or follow and complete a quest called Investigate the Murders. That quest you can start by visiting the Open Hand Temple in Rivington. Afterwards, the end of Investigate the Murders will provide you with the same location and password you need.

Find The Murder Tribunal

To find the Murder Tribunal you will need to use the location and password. This will lead you to Candulhallow’s Tombstones armed with the password ‘Sicarius’. Candulhallow’s Tombstones is located to the northeast of Elfsong Tavern, and the front door can be lock picked if needed.

Head towards the back office room in order to find the secret entrance. You’ll see a ‘Butterfly on Skull’ painting hanging on the wall. Remove it to find a button underneath. Pressing it will reveal a secret door where you can use the password. Ignore the sign beyond this door and keep to the brick path on the right, which will reveal the door to the Murder Tribunal and the way to the Bhaalist Gloves in Baldur’s Gate 3.

Become an Unholy Assassin of Bhaal

The Murder Tribunal is it’s own self-contained area and consequently it’s easy to find your way forward. After arriving in the antechamber you’ll be stopped by guards who ask for proof of your right to be here. Essentially, they want to see proof that you have killed. Present them with a dismembered hand you should have picked up along the way. If you can’t, they will become hostile and you’ll have to fight.

Then head on inside to the Murder Tribunal audience hall. Fans of previous entries in the Baldur’s Gate series will meet a familiar face. You’ll have to make some critical story and character decisions here. Certain choices may instigate combat with members of the Tribunal. Basically, if you want the Bhaalist Gloves you need to avoid this and agree to be judged by Bhaal. Sarevok will summon the shade of someone you killed and ask you how it was done. To pass the first test and take a step closer to the Bhaalist Gloves in Baldur’s Gate 3, choose one of the three lines seen in the image below:

There will be a second test following this. You will be lead into a chamber off to the side where Investigator Valeria is being held captive by the cultists. Killing her is the final test. When you have done so, you will be anointed in the nearby pool of blood as an Unholy Assassin of Bhaal.
