Nyrulna Legendary Trident in Baldur's Gate 3

The Nyrulna is a hidden Legendary weapon in Baldur’s Gate 3 that most players miss during their playthroughs. Here’s what you need to do to unlock it in Act 3.

Baldur’s Gate 3 players know that there’s a small amount of Legendary weapons that can be found while traveling through Faerun. While you can get some by completing quests or defeating enemies, there are a few that are well-hidden and can only be discovered after a very specific set of events.

The Nyrulna is a Legendary trident that most fans admit to miss, especially since players need to scout a hidden scenario that you can only get into if you manage to anger a character in Act 3. If you want to know how to get this unique weapon, here’s everything you need to do.

Where to find Nyrulna in Baldur’s Gate 3?

You can find the trident Nyrulna in Act 3 of Baldur’s Gate 3, although you’ll need to unlock a hidden scene before being able to get it. Here’s what you need to do:

  1. At Rivington, head to the “Circus of Last Days” (X: 22, Y: -34).
  2. Find and talk to the Djinni Akabi (X:-68, Y:-75). You’ll need to win his “Spin the Wheel game.”
  3. To do so, pickpocket his Djinni Ring, which he uses to rig the game.
  4. Talk to him to play again, and when you win, Akabi will accuse you of cheating and send you to a Jungle.

You can find Akabi trying to scam characters in the “Circus of the Last Days.”

After getting to the Jungle, you’ll need to survive the attack of dinosaur-like creatures that are scouting the area. Look for the Painted Chest there (X:-1511, Y:-1522), which you can unlock with a DC 20 check. There you’ll find the Legendary trident Nyrulna, one of the best weapons of Baldur’s Gate 3.
