Enter the Creche Y'llek Rosymorn Monastery - Baldur's Gate 3 - BG3

Find the Githyannki and Creche Y’llek

You can find the Soulbreaker Greatsword and Kith’rak Therezzyn, who wields it in the Githyanki Creche. The entrance to the creche is from the Monastery, where it’s worth exploring the area and solving ceremonial weapon puzzles to get the Blood of Lathander, a mighty legendary mace.

When you’re ready to enter Creche Y’llek, you can jump down from the damaged stairs on the east side of the Monastery (X: 109; Y: 22). Below, you’ll find another set of stairs leading to the Creche, a place filled with NPCs, valuable loot, merchants, and potential side quests. If your goal is to obtain the legendary mace, your next step is to proceed to the Inquisitor Chambers, which is also part of the Lae’zel and Remove Toadpole questlines.

Note: none of those steps or quests are required to obtain the Soulbreaker Greatsword. You can simply kill everyone in Creche and get it. Still, it’s a good idea to first talk to everyone, and check out merchants’ wares, before you decide your next steps and confront the Githyanki.

Once you’ve finished exploring or spoken with the inquisitor and Queen Vlaketh, the Githyanki will typically become hostile, and you’ll need to fight to survive. To acquire the Soulbreaker Greatsword, locate Commander Kith’rak Therezzyn, eliminate her, and loot the weapon. You should find her in the commander’s office, near the entrance to the inquisitor’s chambers. During our playthrough, she was waiting for us on the bridge passage at coordinates (X: 1356, Y: -716). Collect the Soulbreaker Greatsword from her body and wield your new weapon in Baldur’s Gate 3.
