Githyanki Half Plate

In Baldur’s Gate 3, the Githyanki Half Plate is a medium armor you can obtain when you start the game, meet Lae’zel, and steal it from her. You can loot it from other githyanki too. You can equip it to your chest slot in inventory, and the character needs a Medium Armour proficiency to be able to use it or will suffer penalties.

The Githyanki Half Plate gives the highest AC (Armour Class) early in the game. It can carry your survivability for the entire Act 1 until you find something better, such as Adamantine Scale Mail armour, or Armour of Agility, one of the best gear items in the game. It gives the disadvantage on stealth checks, so if you play Rogue or stealth character, you want to pick something else. It’ll be perfect for any class that uses medium armour such as Ranger, Druid, or Cleric.

Additionally, you can loot this medium armour from Githyanki warriors in the northwest during Act 1 and in Creche Y’llek in Mountain Pass Area. However, be cautious if you are below level 4 because Githyanki are typically powerful opponents. The best strategy to defeat them is to stun them and apply any status effect to prevent them from multiple attacks per turn. You can use spells such as command or banish to make your task easier. When you head to the Githyanki location in Act 1, don’t forget to attempt to obtain the legendary Silver Sword of the Astral Plane – the most powerful two-handed weapon at the beginning of the game.
