Baldur’s Gate 3: How To Find Thrumbo (BG3)

The perfect hiding spot...

There’s a strange house by the seaside called Philgrave’s Mansion. And if you happen to pass a very high arcana check near its stone door, you can encounter Mystic Carrion, a necromancer who has very little patience. But if you do him a favor, you can have one of the mystical artifacts in his collection. You just need to find his escaped servant, Thrumbo.

Where is Thrumbo in Baldur’s Gate 3 – Answered

While many of the undead thralls in Mystic Carrion’s company are practically braindead (get it?), one is cut from a better cloth. And that is Thrumbo, who’s made his grand escape.

And if you find him and report his whereabouts to Mystic Carrion, you’ll get a reward—a magical item. But where is our undead friend?

The answer is not very far at all. If you head up to the very top floor of the Philgrave Mansion (the thralls will try to stop you, so sneaking or invisibility is recommended), you’ll find a Beggar’s Portrait on the ground. Pass a perception check and you’ll find there’s a ward on it, which hides a note. This note reveals Thrumbo’s location: the beach, where he intends to buy a boat and row them all to freedom.

Head to the beach just east of the Philgrave Mansion and you’ll be attacked by five Sahuagin. These fish monsters are near a pier, and the house immediately beside this pier is where Thrumbo is hiding. Just wander in and inspect the wardrobe to reveal his hiding place.

Thrumbo will immediately begin to beg his case. The Mystic Carrion, apparently, is not just a necromancer. He’s a murderer and a sadist. And that leaves you with a choice. Will you bring Thrumbo back to meet his maker or kill the Mummy Lord once and for all?

Baldur’s Gate 3: Siding With Mystic Carrion

Siding with the Mystic Carrion is the worse option of the two choices. However, if you wanna go this route, you’ll get a Torch of Revocation as the reward. Your character can mention how pitiable the reward is, netting you a bit more gold.

Baldur’s Gate 3: Killing The Mystic Carrion

In our opinion, killing the Mystic Carrion is the better choice. The Mystic Carrion is a bad guy who has made the lives of many absolutely miserable. You also get some fantastic loot by killing him, along with being able to complete your battle task. The loot includes a Staff of Cherished Necromancy, Veil of the Morning, and Armour of the Sporekeeper.

Staff of Cherished Necromancy Stats

Here are the stats for the Staff of Cherished Necromancy weapon.

  • Damage:
    • One-handed damage: 1d6 + 2 (3-8) + Strength Modifier (Bludgeoning Damage).
    • Two-handed damage: 1d8 + 2 (3-10) + Strength Modifier (Bludgeoning Damage).
    • Extra damage: 1d4 (1-4) Necrotic damage.
  • Quarterstave.
  • Rarity: Very Rare.
  • Enchantment: +2.
  • Versatile.
  • Dippable.
  • Range: 1.5m.
  • Weight: 1.8kg.
  • Price: 480gp.
  • Heightened Necromancy: Creatures have Disadvantage on Saving Throws against your Necromancy Spells.
  • Life Essence Harvest: When the wielder kills a hostile creature with a spell, they greedily absorb its energy and gain Life Essence until their next Long Rest.
  • Topple.

Veil of the Morning

Here are the stats for the Veil of the Morning weapon.

  • Armor Class: 10.
  • Clothing.
  • Rarity: Very Rare.
  • Weight: 1.8kg.
  • Price: 1600 gp.
  • Let The Undead Blanch With Fear!: Undead have Disadvantage on Attack Rolls against you, and you have Advantage on Saving Throws against their actions and spells.

Armour of the Sporekeeper stats

Here are the stats for the Armour of the Sporekeeper.

  • Light Armour.

  • Spore Sacks: While imbued with Symbiotic Entity, you can spread Bibberbang Spores, Timmask Spores, and Haste Spores.

And if you’re down to deal with more sadistic, supernatural monsters, why not find a missing child before it’s too late? In doing so, you’ll get a ton of rare items (and one legendary sword).
