How to Get The Killer’s Sweetheart in Baldur’s Gate 3

Killer’s Sweetheart is available close to the end of Act 2 in shadow-cursed lands and is located in Gountylet of Shar’s ancient temple during Self-Same Trial. If you’ll follow the main story, you’ll eventually head there to find Balthazar, a powerful necromancer on a hunt for Nighsonnng. However, you can also enter this location regardless of your quests journal as soon as you start Act 2.

Gauntlet of Shar Location Baldur's Gate 3

The entrance to the Gauntled of Shar is located north of the House of Healing next to the Grand Mausoleum Fast travel portal. You’ll meet Raphael there warning you about a terrible beast inside, however, to get the ring, you won’t need to interact with his enemy, so don’t worry. It’s part of the Nightsong Quest.

You’ll find an old crypt with sarcophaguses inside the mausoleum. Loot the area and go further. The ancient temple of Shar is behind the hidden door next to the Kethrick Thorh Gobelin. To open the hidden door, you’ll need to pass an automatic perception check and uncover the three buttons each under one of the paintings in the room. Press the buttons as follows:

  1. Moonrise Towers
  2. Grief
  3. General

Next, enter the Gountled of Shar by stepping on the platform and pressing the purple gem to be transported inside.

Shar Puzzle

Now you have two choices: solve the statue Shar Puzlle or take a longer road and go west until you find the trials.

You’ll see a Shar statue with a globe and side rooms when you enter. You won’t be able to get close to the statue. It will knock you out immediately. In each side room is a coffin, trap, and lever that can lower the hanging purple braziers in the room around the statue. Your task is to lower all braziers using levers and turn braziers off until the room is completely covered in the dark. Then, avoiding light from the floor runes, you can safely interact with the globe in front of the statue and solve the puzzle. Now, the main door behind the statue should open, and you can go deeper into the Gauntlet of Shar.

Go straight north. You’ll first encounter a few skeletons controlled by Balthazar, help them defeat the dark justiciars, and just next, you should be able to unlock Gountlet of Shar’s fast travel portal. From there, go further to the north to the trials of Shar. Killer’s Sweetheart Ring is on the left in the Self-Same Trial second door. To get it, you must first give the offering to the Shar. Interact with the Shar statue in the middle of the room to access the trial. If you have Shadowheart with you and allow her to do it, you’ll get some approval from her.

This time, your task is to defeat the mirror images of your team. It can be a challenging fight because you’ll essentially be fighting yourself. After the battle, go up to the balcony with the brazier, and the Killer’s Sweetheart ring should be on the bench next to it. If you can’t find it, press “alt” on the keyboard (PC default key) to highlight the interactive objects around you. Search the area and get the Killer’s Sweetheart ring in BG3!
