Baldur's Gate 3 Phalar Aluve

Getting the Phalar Aluve in Act 1 of Baldur’s Gate 3 is great to really give your Bards or Rogues build a boost during their first levels, so here’s how to get it.

Baldur’s Gate 3 has insanely strong weapons hidden during Act 1, and players are often surprised when they stumble upon them. The Phalar Aluve is deep down a chasm in the first part of the Underdark, which is why most adventurers skip it and lose the opportunity of getting a great sword that works for Rogues and Bards.

If you want to know how to get the Phalar Aluve in Baldur’s Gate 3, here’s everything you need to do.

Baldur’s Gate 3: Where is the Phalar Aluve

To get the Phalar Aluve in Baldur’s Gate 3 Act 1, you’ll need to find the stone it’s lodged in, which is deep down a chasm in the Underdark in Act 1. Here’s what you need to do to retrieve it.

  1. Use the Well found in the Blighted Village (X: 26, Y: 399) to head to the Underdark. You can choose whether to fight or avoid the Phase Spiders.
  2. Head to the Whispering Depth waypoint (X:-590, Y: -384), where you’ll find an open chasm. Cast “Feather Fall” or drink a Feather Fall potion, and jump in.
  3. You’ll float down into the Underdark, where you can head southwest to find a sword in the stone (X:117, Y:-190).
  4. Pass either a 15 DC Strength or 10 DC Religion Check plus a 10 DC Charisma check to get it.
