Rogues are a staple class in fantasy, and their ability to sneak past obstacles, which can often be the easiest solution to problems. You won’t be able to take as much damage as other melee classes like Barbarians, but Rogues like Astarion can deal high amounts of damage and easily reposition themselves in battle with their mobility. To help you destroy your enemies, here are the best Rogue feats in Baldur’s Gate 3.

Best Rogue Feats in Baldur’s Gate 3

You can take up spellcasting as an Arcane Trickster Rogue, which might make other feats viable as well, but here are five of the best overall Rogue feats that can work on any subclass.

Mobile is a solid choice if you’re going to be in close range, but don’t want to risk staying there and taking damage. This feat lets you move away from enemies without taking an attack of opportunity if you make a melee attack beforehand. You also get extra movement speed and ignore difficult terrain when you use Dash.


Alert is good for Rogues in general, but particularly for the Assassin Subclass. Assassins get advantage from being ahead of enemies in the Initiative order, and that means you can use Sneak Attack more often with this feat since it boosts you with +5 to Initiative. Also, you can’t be Surprised, so you won’t have to worry about missing turns from being ambushed by enemies.

Savage Attacker

Like other classes that rely on weapon attacks rather than spells, Savage Attacker is a strong choice for Rogues. Savage Attacker gives you advantage when you roll for damage on an attack that hits the enemy, taking the higher roll. It’s hard to argue against dealing more damage, and this is especially useful when you’re making Sneak Attacks.

Ability Improvement

Ability Improvement is a great feat for any class, Rogues included. It lets you take a straight +2 to Dexterity, or if you feel like you need a bit more tankiness, you can do +1 to Dexterity and +1 to Constitution to increase damage and your hit points. It’s also useful if you’re multiclassing and need a boost to a different stat.


If you’re concerned about survivability, you might want to consider Tough as a feat. Tough increases your hit points by two for every level gained, which makes it a nice way to beef up your character or Astarion. This is particularly useful on higher difficulties where you don’t get as many hit points to work with.

Those are five of the best Rogue feats in Baldur’s Gate 3, but you might find that a different set works better with your specific build. You won’t be able to take all five feats, so you’ll need to choose based on your needs and the composition of your party.
