Baldur's Gate 3 Sword of Justice

Sword of Justice

In Baldur’s Gate 3 the Sword of Justice is a Greatsword you can acquire in about the midway point of Act 1, depending on what order you do certain quests. An Uncommon Magic Weapon, it has a very nice bonus called Tyr’s Protection. This bonus surrounds a creature with a shimmering field of magic that increases its Armour Class by 2, and lasts for as long as the weapon is equipped. This is a fantastic Paladin weapon for the early part of the game. We generally recommend that players attempt to loot the Everburn Blade during the prologue if they can, but doing so is almost impossible on the Tactician difficulty. Therefore, this greatsword is a great second choice.

BG3 Toll House
Toll House Location

Getting the Sword of Justice will be part of the quest line where you meet and recruit (or not) potential companion Karlach. You’ll need to travel to the Toll House in the north central part of the Act 1 map (despite its name, the building is pretty run down). Inside you’ll find a man named Anders standing behind a desk. Speak to him and he’ll tell you about a ‘devil’ that needs killing and ask for your help, promising a reward. If you agree, the quest ‘Hunt The Devil’ will begin. Head down the path directly to the south to find Karlach – if you can, have Wyll in your party for extra, story specific dialogue.

Now you make a choice: Either fulfill your Hunt The Devil obligation and kill Karlach, or, if you believe her story, recruit her.

Either way, return to the Toll House and speak with Anders. If you did as he asked and killed the ‘devil’, then he will reward you with the Sword of Justice. If you spared Karlach, he will know of this thanks to his spies and scouts. You’ll end up in a fight with him and the few others also in his group. After defeating them and killing Anders, you can loot the Sword of Justice from his body.

But don’t leave the building just yet! You can find one more nice piece of uncommon armor, the Gloves of Heroism. They are a great early game item for Paladins.
