Baldur’s Gate 3: How to solve the Rosymorn Monastery stained-glass puzzle and get Dawnmaster’s Crest in BG3

Solving it is easier than it sounds.

Inside the Rosymorn Monastery in BG3, you’ll find a room with a beautifully detailed dial on the floor and stained glass windows. This room contains a challenging conundrum. Here’s our guide on solving the stained glass puzzle and obtaining the Dawnmaster’s Crest in Baldur’s Gate 3.

Where to Find the Stained Glass puzzle in Baldur’s Gate 3

The stained glass puzzle room and all four pedestals are located in the northernmost section of the Rosymorn Monastery. To reach it, begin by traversing the Mountain Pass and then follow the road. You and your party will have to do a lot of jumping and climbing on the terrain to navigate the exterior areas of the Rosymorn Monastery.

How to solve the Stained Glass Dawnmaster Puzzle in BG3, explained

The stained glass room within the Rosymorn Monastery has four windows, each with a stone pedestal in front of them. To solve the Dawnmaster puzzle, you must collect three weapons located around the monastery: a Rusty Mace, Ceremonial Warhammer, and the Ceremonial Battleaxe.

And once you have all three weapons, you must throw each weapon onto a specific stone pedestal. Easy, right? Thankfully, the sword is already in the correct spot because the two crystals on the pedestal glow blue. You’ll need to place the other three weapons on the correct pedestals:

  • Dawnmaster Welkinglory, northwest pedestal: Longsword is already there
  • Dawnmaster Seed, northeast pedestal: Ceremonial Warhammer
  • Dawnmaster Vaseid, southwest pedestal: Ceremonial Battleaxe
  • Dawnmaster Stockhold, southeast pedestal: Rusty Mace
Tip:

Luckily for players, these items do not need to be “ceremonial.” For example, I had a regular warhammer in my inventory. When I tried placing this weapon on the pedestal, the gems began glowing, as shown in the video below.

If you don’t happen to have these types of weapons in your inventory, no sweat. You should be able to find them nearby, but you will need to travel to different areas of the monastery to locate them.

Once you find and place the weapons correctly, you will complete the Dawnmaster puzzle and obtain the Dawnmaster’s Crest in Baldur’s Gate 3. Here are all the locations for each of the weapons.

How to find the Ceremonial Battleaxe in Baldur’s Gate 3

You will find the Ceremonial Battleaxe next to a Guardian of Faith Spell locked behind a glowing door on the same floor. To get to this room, follow these steps:

  1. Head out of the stained glass room, where you’ll see a tree and a broken portion of the walkway.
  2. Jump across to the other side and make your way forward until you see a glowing door at the coordinates X:95 and Y:47.
    • I recommend switching over to your companion with the highest Sleight of Hand, a Dexterity skill, like Astarion, to lockpick the door because you must roll at least a 15 to succeed.
  3. Inside the room, you’ll find the Ceremonial Battleaxe at the feet of an active Guardian of Faith spell.
    • A ring is around it on the ground, and you will start your fight if you enter it. I had the best win rate success after using a ranged attack and starting the battle on my terms to gain an advantage.
  4. Once you defeat the Guardian, you can pick up the Ceremonial Battleaxe and move on to the next weapon.

You will find the Ceremonial Warhammer in the nest of an Ancient Eagle on the floor above your current location. To get to the nest, you must:

  1. Exit the Guardian’s room by jumping over the debris, blocking the door, and turning left.
  2. A few steps away, you’ll see Knotted Roots at the coordinates X:90 and Y:39. Interact with the roots to climb to the top.
  3. Here, you’ll find the Ancient Eagle and the Giant Eagle, which you must eliminate to obtain the Ceremonial Warhammer.
  4. Once you’ve defeated the eagles and have the Ceremonial Warhammer in your inventory, you can move on and get the last weapon.

How to find the Rusty Mace in Baldur’s Gate 3

You will find the Rusy Mace two floors below your current location, next to a pile of stone debris. To get the mace, you must:

  1. Head down the Knotted Roots to the floor below
  2. There’s a wooden door right behind you that you need to go through and a flight of stone stairs you must descend.
  3. At the base of the staircase, head right until you see the wooden barricade covering a large break in the wall and destroy the barricade.
  4. Make your way through the opening and up the stairs to your left, and you’ll see the Rusty Mace on the ground at the coordinates X:91, Y:30.

With all three weapons in your inventory, return to the stained glass window room—which is on the level above you, so you must go back up the stone staircase and jump across the break in the path.

How to throw the weapons and solve the Stained Glass Puzzle in Baldur’s Gate 3

To solve the Stained Glass Puzzle, you must throw the Rusty Mace, Ceremonial Warhammer, and the Ceremonial Battleaxe in the following locations:

  1. Rusty Mace—Throw on the pedestal to the right of the entrance.
  2. Ceremonial Warhammer—Throw on the pedestal to the left of the entrance
  3. Ceremonial Battleaxe—Throw it on the remaining pedestal at the back of the room.

If you accidentally throw a weapon onto the wrong pedestal, don’t worry! I did this, and all that happened was that it knocked me down, and I became dazed momentarily. All you need to do is pick the weapon up from the floor and throw it in the right spot.

Now that all four weapons are on their pedestals, a secret compartment containing a pouch will open on the wall next to the sword.

You’ll find a letter and the Dawnmaster’s Crest inside the pouch. You have now completed and solved the Stained Glass Puzzle and received the Dawnmaster’s Crest in Baldur’s Gate 3.
