Baldur’s Gate 3: Where to find the Luminous Armor

To get the Luminous Armor in Baldur’s Gate 3, you’ll need to head straight to the Underdark during Act 1. There are many entrances that you can go through to get there, but the fastest way is through the Blighted Village. Here are the steps you need to follow:

  1. Go to the Blighted Village and look for the well in X:26, Y: 399.
  2. Climb down the well to the Whispering Depths, where you’ll find giant Spiders that you’ll need to defeat first.
  3. Go forward until X:-543, Y: -366, where you’ll see a huge tunnel that leads you to the Underdark.
  4. Take a potion or cast the Feather Fall spell, and then jump into it.

After getting to the Underdark, head to the Selunite Outpost at X: 150, Y:-233. Its defense system will be activated, so you can enter the ruins by jumping to the rocks on the left side of the outpost, and get there through a broken window.

Once inside, go to the east room and unlock the iron door, where you’ll find a Gilded Chest at X:164, Y:-251. As you approach the place, you’ll need to pass a Perception check to reveal a hidden door to the east. After unlocking it, you’ll be able to loot the Luminous Armor from the chest in X: 175, Y: -247.
