Where to Find the Amulet of Greater Health in BG3

The Amulet of Greater Health is a very rare item that increases the wearer's Constitution to 23, making it overpowered for various builds. It can be stolen from the Archives Room in the House of Hope (check the yellow circle on the map image above to see its precise location).

The House of Hope falls under the dominion of the devil Raphael, and to reach it, you will need to open a portal by performing a special ritual involving a Skull, Diamond, Coin of Mammon, Infernal Marble, and Incense. All required ingredients can be easily stolen from Helsik in the Devil's Fee shop; just consume a Potion of Invisibility, sneak up behind her, and pickpocket her pouch.

When you have all the items, head to the upper floor of the Devil's Fee to perform the ritual. Place all the items accordingly. Once the portal is open, you can use it to reach House of Hope.

During your visit to the House of Hope for the amulet, you will also find the Orphic Hammer sealed in the Archives room with a magic spell. Speak the magic words, 'Give me my heart's desire' to get the hammer (if you haven't signed Raphael's deal). Additionally, you can release Hope from imprisonment and she will reward you with the Gloves of Soul Catching.

Should you Steal the Amulet of Greater Health in BG3?

I recommend stealing the Amulet of Greater Health since the item is build-defining. However, stealing it directly alerts the enemies nearby, turning them hostile. Instead, eliminate the Archivist to get rid of the guards, and then steal the amulet (I used this strategy with great success). The amulet is also kept on top of a pressure plate, so deactivate the trap first before collecting it.

As a side note, I also convinced the Archivist I was Zariel’s High Inquisitor, Verillius Receptor through dialogue checks. If you speak to Hope before entering the Archives, she will provide you with this information, which comes in handy while tricking the Archivist. He will tour you around the archives, showing you more exceptional items to steal.
