Light of Creation Baldur’s Gate 3

In Baldur’s Gate 3, the Light of Creation is a two-handed Halberd with very good damage output and deals additional lighting damage. The overcharge buff has a chance to stun the wielder unless it’s a construct, but the damage is still very worth it if you need a good halberd early in the game. From the same enemy, you’ll loot the Guiding Light that unlocks the basement in the Arcane Tower Basement where you can find other fantastic items such as Staff of Arcane Blessing, The Sparkswall, and Uncovered Mysteries.

You can equip it to your character’s main hand weapon slot in the inventory, providing additional bonuses and buffs. The user needs Martial weapon proficiency or suffers penalties while wearing the weapon. You can equip it on any class, companion, or character with Martial Weapon Proficiency.

How to Get Light of Creation in Baldur’s Gate 3

Blighted Village - Entrance to the Spider Cave - Whispering Depths - Location in Baldur's Gate 3

To get the Light of Creation, you must first enter the Underdark. There are a few entrances, including trying the Shattered Sanctum and Auntie Ethel’s house, but I’ll quickly explain how to get there through the Whispering Depths underneath Blighted Village. You’ll need the potion, scroll, or spell of Feather Fall, so ensure you have one before proceeding.

Find the Underdark

BG3 Whispering Depths

Set your course west from Emerald Grove, and you’ll easily find the Blighted Village and a well in the middle. You must pass an Investigation skill check of 10 DC, to use it and climb down to the Whispering Depths. Inside the cave system, there are giant Spiders and Spider Matriarchs (X: -543 Y: -366). You must defeat them first, so we advise you to reach at least level 3 so you’ll have no problem with the fight and surviving in the Underdark.

Once you are ready and defeated the spiders, you need to jump down the big tunnel (X: -543 Y: -366) leading straight down to the Underdark, and that’s when you need the Feather Fall spell. Use it so you won’t take any fall damage. In the Underdark, you must find the Arcane Tower. For a detailed description of how to find Underdark, defeat Bernard, or solve it peacefully, and how to unlock the Arcane Tower Basement, please check out the Arcane Tower guide.
