Baldur's Gate 3: how to find Thrumbo in BG3

Where to find Thrumbo for Mystical Carrion in Baldur's Gate 3

Who doesn’t like to be beside the seaside? Anyone can find joy in the ocean lapping at the sand as you sit in nice relaxation at it all – even necromancers. Head down to the beach area in Act 3 of Baldur’s Gate 3 and you’ll encounter a place called Philgrave’s Mansion, home to a strange person known as Mystical Carrion.

He’s got a job for you, and he’ll give you a powerful magical artifact as a reward. You just have to find Thrumbo, an undead thrall of his. We’ll tell you where to find him.

Thrumbo’s location – BG3

BG3 Thrumbo

Pop up to the top of the mansion, avoiding the hostile thralls along the way, until you find a painting on the ground called the Beggar’s Portrait. By the way, you can also find a Dribbles the Clown body part in the mansion. You’ll need to pass a perception check, but you can then find a note that tells you where Thrumbo is going – the beach! Told you everyone loves it.

Thrumbo’s rather ill-advised plan is to buy a small boat where he can row all of the thralls to freedom, so it’s best you go and stop him. You’ll encounter some rather aggressive fish monsters along the way, but once they’re dealt with, you can enter the house near the pier and open the wardrobe to find Thrumbo.

Naturally, Thrumbo doesn’t want you to go back. He can tell you of all the evil deeds Mystical Carrion has performed – because let’s face it, there is no such thing as a morally pure necromancer. The choice is then yours, take Thrumbo down and bring his body back to Carrion for the reward, or set your sights on taking Carrion down.
