If you are unsure where to find Thrumbo in Baldur’s Gate 3, then this article is for you. Read on to see how to find the missing servant of Mystic Carrion.

Baldur’s Gate 3 has quests hidden on every corner. These range from encountering minor deities and saving people from windmills all the way to literally going to Hell. Some of them are easy to miss, so you have to be meticulous in your playthrough to get them all. One of those quests is looking for Thrumbo, a missing undead servant of a Necromancer called Mystic Carrion. Let’s see where and how to find Thrumbo in Baldur’s Gate 3.

Where to Find Thrumbo in Baldur’s Gate 3

Thrumbo is hidden in a small house near the pier in the Lower City of Baldur’s Gate, in Act 3. Naturally, to have gotten this quest, you must have talked to Mystic Carrion, hidden in the basement of Philgrave’s Mansion. He asks you to find Thrumbo, one of his undead servants who has gone missing, and bring his body back. He recommends talking to other zombie-looking beggars, who can point you to Thrumbo’s location. We are here to cut to the chase.

Thrumbo is hiding quite nearby, so just head down the stairs to the pier. If you haven’t already, you will be attacked by some Sahuagin down there. Once you dispatch them, head in the north-east direction, to the last house on the pier. The house is directly East of the Heapside Strand waypoint, and South of the Guildhall Entrance on your Map. It is a house with some stairs leading up to the entrance. Once inside, just open the Wardrobe near the door you just entered from, and Thrumbo will jump out of hiding.

What to Do With Thrumbo?

Once found, Thrumbo will try to persuade you to help him. Turns out, Mystic Carrion is a Mummy Lord, who murdered Thrumbo and his friends to turn them into undead. You have the option of attacking Thrumbo and delivering his body to Mystic Carrion, as originally intended, or you can help Thrumbo instead. 

The first option is easier, just kill Thrumbo and bring his body back to the Necromancer, and you will get a Torch of Revocation as a reward.

If you decide to help Thrumbo instead, the quest is quite harder. But we do recommend this route, as the rewards and loot you get are way better. Plus it is a morally good choice if you like playing like that. Thrumbo will reveal that Mystic Carrion is immortal, and you will have to find his organs (which are split into four jars: Lungs, Liver, Brain, and Heart), destroy them, and then confront the Mummy. This option is way more dangerous, but you will get some powerful items, like the Crypt Lord Ring, Staff of Cherished Necromancy, Armour of the Sporekeeper, and Veil of the Morning. You can also take the Torch of Revocation from Mystic Carrion’s Gilded Chest. So, all in all, a better option to choose, unless you really like Mystic Carrion as a character.
