In order to open Selune’s gilded chest in BG3, you’ll need an item called the Selunite Prayer Sheet. This is a handwritten prayer to Selune that you’ll read in order to remove the magic seal covering the gilded chest. Stand near the gilded chest, open your inventory, and hover over the Selunite Prayer Sheet, then select “Read” option to remove the seal and safely open the chest. The gilded chest of Selune contains a Moondrop Pendant, Silver Necklace, Selunite Rite, Bloodstone, and an Idol of Selune.

The Selunite Prayer Sheet can be found behind the Statue of Selune, to the south of where the gilded chest is located. To get there, leap across the gap using the Jump action, then roll a successful perception check to reveal the Selunite Prayer Sheet on the ground. Pick it up using a character or companion with a religion skill (Gale will do) and head back to the gilded chest. From this point on, you can then follow the steps discussed above to open the gilded chest.

Keep in mind that opening the chest will trigger a dialogue cutscene if Shadowheart is nearby, causing her to object and warn you of your actions. If this happens, you’ll need to do an Insight check, Intimidation check, Persuasion check, or just leave it, depending on what option you choose.
