If you haven’t stumbled upon this quest naturally in Baldur’s Gate 3, you’ll need to travel to the Blighted Village. Head to the building north of the fast travel point and east of the windmill. Look for the Shabby Wooden Doors, which mark the entrance. Inside, you’ll find “Highcliff’s Journal” next to the fireplace. Take a moment to read it, and this will initiate the “Finish the Masterwork Weapon” quest.

Where to Find Highcliff’s Blueprints

The first step in this quest is to locate the blueprints for the Masterwork weapons. Fortunately, the blueprints are nearby and the easiest part of the quest to accomplish. In the same house where you found the journal, enter the eastern room and look for a hole in the ground covered in webs. Clear the webs by using a source of fire, like a spell or torch. Don’t forget to grab the key beside the fireplace in the same room. Once done, drop down into the basement. At this point, you’ll need to pass a perception check to spot the trap on the treasure chest. If successful, disarm the trap by rolling a 10 for Slight of Hand. Regardless of the result, open the chest and retrieve Highcliff’s Blueprints.

Upon examining the blueprints, you’ll notice that besides the weapon itself, you’ll need an ingredient called Sussur Bark to craft a Masterwork weapon. If you’re familiar with Sussur Blooms, you likely have an idea of where to find this material.

Similar to the blooms, Sussur Bark can be found deep in the Underdark. Your destination is the western end of the Underdark, near the Myconid Colony, where you’ll find the Sussur Tree. To reach it quickly, pass through the Goblin Camp and head southwest until you come across the giant glowing Sussur Tree. Here, the quest marker will guide you to the right spot. Navigate up the tree’s roots and collect some bark. Remember to highlight objects to easily spot and gather the bark. Be cautious, as the enemies in this area can be formidable. Ensure you’re well-prepared for a fight.

Crafting the Masterwork Weapon

With the blueprints and bark in your possession, the final step is to forge the weapon itself. Return to the Blighted Village and enter Highcliff’s house once again. However, this time, look for the Shabby Wooden Doors on the exterior rather than using the main entrance. Here, the key you obtained earlier will come in handy. Unlock the doors and proceed to the forge. Move forward until you reach the furnace. Ignite it and use the bellows to heat it up, preparing it for the forging process.

Once the furnace is hot, interact with it to bring up the Melting Furnace menu. First, insert the Sussur Bark and combine it. Next, use the combine menu to craft your Masterwork weapon. Choose a dagger, greatsword, or sickle to enchant. Keep in mind that the weapon must be neither enchanted nor rare. Depending on your selection, you’ll obtain a Sussur Dagger, Sussur Greatsword, or Sussur Sickle. However, all three weapons possess the same advantageous attributes. Your newly crafted weapon will gain a +1 bonus to attack rolls and apply the Silence effect to any target that it strikes.
