Baldur’s Gate 3 – How to Beat Marcus and Save Isobel

How to Defeat Marcus

This fight is extremely difficult to win first time blind unless:

  • A) You are an expert player, and also
  • B) You are sufficiently lucky with your initiative rolls

It is more than possible for Marcus and his adds to take down Isobel against any defence if the initiative rolls go against you.

There are a number of strategies expert players can use to save Isobel playing this encounter “straight”. However if you’ve already lost your first attempt, and given it is seriously disadvantageous to allow Marcus to abduct Isobel, then I would recommend using 20/20 hindsight to make this fight easy.

Unless that is you want to spend some time to use this fight to study expert tactics.

Again there are several ways to do that but the simplest by far is to block the doors to Isobel’s room before you speak to her. That way you just have to deal with Marcus himself and the two gargoyles that come down through a hole in the roof.

Once you’ve dealt with those three Isobel with be safe and dealing with the remaining gargoyles is a simple matter.

I turned my love for games from a hobby into a job back in 2005, since then working on various gaming / entertainment websites. But in 2016 I finally created my first website about video games – Gameplay Tips. And exactly 4 years later, Game Cheat Codes was created – my second website dedicated to legal game cheats. My experience with games started back in 1994 with the Metal Mutant game on ZX Spectrum computer. And since then, I’ve been playing on anything from consoles, to mobile devices.
