In a game this big, you can expect to encounter all kinds of items, weapons, and armor as you explore the vast world of Baldur’s Gate 3. However, it goes without saying that not all of those pieces are equally useful (some of them are not good at all, to be honest).

Still, when it comes to armor, one of the best options that you can find in the game is the Helldusk armor, which comes with a unique set of perks—and the best part is you can get it quite early (the Flawed version, at least)! This set is, on the other hand, somewhat elusive and missable to actually acquire, but worry not. In this guide, we explain everything you need to know about how to get Helldusk Armor in Baldur’s Gate 3 with ease.

The process of getting the Helldusk armor set in Baldur’s Gate 3 differs, depending on which version of it you’re set on.

The good news is that you can get the Flawed version of Helldusk armor rather early on from Dammon, the Blacksmith who can manipulate Infernal Iron. You first encounter Dammon in Act I in the Emerald Grove, but finding him again could be tricky depending on the choices you make. If he survives the events of Act I, you can see him again at the Last Light Inn.

Technically, you can obtain each piece of the Flawed Helldusk armor set from Dammon if you bring him Infernal Iron, so stick to the pieces you find throughout Act I.

To get the perfected, Legendary version of the Helldusk armor set, you need to reach the city of Baldur’s Gate. Finding these items is related to the quest involving Raphael (whom you’ve met in the Underdark). Once you get to the city, you can find him again at the Sharess’ Caress. If he’s not there, don’t worry—you can go straight to Devil’s Fee in the lower city.

At Devil’s Fee, you need to persuade or bribe Helsik until you get the dialogue option about her helping you to break into the House of Hope. Haggle about the fee, and try to get her to reduce the price to a mere 100 to 200 Gold, even though she tries to get you to pay an exorbitant amount at first.

If you’re successful, you will get instructions on how to open a portal to the House of Hope. Make sure to explore every part of the lair and grab valuable loot, including Helldusk Gloves and Helldusk Helmet. You can also get Helldusk Armor by looting everything in sight or after fighting Raphael (depending on whether you trigger that altercation or not).

To find Helldusk Boots and complete the armor set, you need to go to the top floor of Wyrm’s Rock Fortress in the city and find them in a container in the northwestern corner.

Helldusk Armor in Baldur’s Gate 3, explained

Even if you can only get the Flawed Helldusk armor set for now, we would still recommend it. This set includes the Flawed Helldusk Helmet, Flawed Helldusk Armour (chest piece), and Flawed Helldusk Gloves. Here are all the perks that these pieces come with:

  • Flawed Helldusk Helmet: Magical Durability (+2 bonus to Saving Throws against spells) and +1 Constitution Saving Throws
  • Flawed Helldusk Armour: Lesser Infernal Retribution (enemies hitting you within 2 meters might take 1-4 Fire damage) and Superior Plate (1 less Piercing damage), but also disadvantage on Stealth checks
  • Flawed Helldusk Gloves: Lesser Infernal Touch (weapon attacks deal +1-4 Fire damage; unarmed attacks deal +1-4 Necrotic damage and have a chance of inflicting Bleeding) and +1 Strength Saving Throws

Perfect Helldusk Armor is, of course, much better, and it is classified as Legendary Heavy Armor, with the perks that match that rarity level:

  • Helldusk Armour (Armor Class 21)
    • The wearer is immediately considered Proficient
    • Infernal Retribution (the caster receives Burning for three turns when you manage a Saving Throw)
    • Prime Aegis of Fire (Resistance to Fire damage and protection from Burning; -3 Damage from any source)
    • Fly (Level 3 Transmutation Spell)
  • Helldusk Helmet (Very Rare)
    • Infernal Sight (you cannot be Blinded; the ability to see up to 12m ahead in magical and ordinary darkness)
    • Magical Durability (+2 bonus to Saving Throws against spells)
    • Prevents Critical Hits on the wearer
    • Immolating Gaze (Class Action)
  • Helldusk Gloves (Very Rare)
    • Infernal Acuity (+1 bonus to Spell Attack Rolls and Spell Save DC)
    • Infernal Touch (weapon attacks deal +1-6 Fire damage; unarmed attacks deal +1-6 Necrotic damage with possible Bleeding)
    • +1 Strength Saving Throws
    • Rays of Fire (Cantrips)
  • Helldusk Boots (Very Rare)
    • Steadfast (Difficult Terrain effects are ignored; foe’s spells and actions cannot forcibly move you)
    • Infernal Evasion (after failing a Saving Throw, you can use your reaction to succeed instead)
    • Hellcrawler (Class Action)
