The Easiest Way to Defeat Filro the Forgotten in Baldur’s Gate 3

A rogue’s Sneak Attack can be shockingly strong, and it’s just the thing for this situation. Having a rogue sneak up on Filro the Forgotten alone and use Sneak Attack has the chance to kill him in one shot, making it so you don’t have to fight the Hook Horrors.

If your Tav isn’t a rogue, then Astarion can do the job here. Ungroup him from the party and use Hide. Then, move behind Filro and use Sneak Attack. I was able to defeat him in one shot. If he has just a little health left, you could also use Shove to try killing him with fall damage (which is always fun).

If you aren’t able to kill him right away, you can lure the Hook Horrors to Bulette and let those groups attack each other, letting you focus on Filro and making this into an easy fight because he doesn’t have a lot of health or defense.

And that’s how to defeat Filro the Forgotten in Baldur’s Gate 3. Make sure you loot him to get the Icy Crystal if you want to get the Mourning Frost. Otherwise, check out our BG3 guide hub for more topics like how to investigate Last Light Inn or how to get the Ring of Protection.
