Rogues are a slippery class designed to weaken backlines or outright kill high-value targets. Their focus on high damage means that the feats they take should also prioritize damage above all else. Otherwise, you'll just be a mediocre Fighter instead. Depending on the type of Rogue you are, the feats you'll use will be different. So, here are the best melee and ranged feats for Rogues of all kinds.

Best feats for melee Rogues in BG3

1. Alert

If you're planning to rush headlong into the backline, you'll want to be wide awake when you're doing it. Alert allows for melee Rogues to take their turn earlier than the enemy, on average. They also become immune to the Surprised status which is paramount against some encounters in the game.

2. Athlete

For a melee Rogue, mobility is king. Your goal is to kill and steal, so you need to be in the right place at all times. Athlete lets you boost your Dexterity ability score by one, while also dramatically improving your jump distance. Value.

3. Lucky

Rogues can't shrug off damage like Fighters can, so they need to be sort of lucky to get things done. when they need to. This feat grants three Luck Points which can be used to gain Advantage on Attack Rolls, Ability Checks, or Saving Throws. Additionally, they can force enemies to reroll their attacks, but a good Rogue should never need to.

4. Mage Slayer

Casters can easily turn the tide of a battle with a single spell, but if you stick a melee Rogue on them, they'll be as harmless as fly with the Mage Slayer feat. If a caster casts a spell with a Mage Slayer Rogue in melee range, they can attack the target, free of charge. Mage Slayer additionally makes it easier for melee Rogues to break a caster's Concentration.

5. Mobile

A good melee Rogue knows that when a target is dying or wounded, it's time to get out of harm's way as quickly as possible. When a melee Rogue with Mobile makes a melee attack, they can evade any Attack of Opportunity made from the target. Additionally, they get an increase in movement speed and Difficult Terran doesn't slow them down while Dashing.

Best feats for ranged Rogues in BG3

1. Alert

To be clear, Alert is great for every class and every build in BG3, and that is no exception for ranged Rogues. Being able to take a turn earlier than typical is a massive boon in most of the game's encounters.

2. Athlete

Since all Rogues use Dexterity as their main ability score, Athlete remains a strong choice for a feat. The same can be said about the increase in jump distance, as mobility is important for all Rogues.

3. Mobile

Though a ranged Rogue cannot make use of Mobile's secondary effect, it still provides a significant boost in movement speed, making it easier for them to get out of harm's way.

4. Sharpshooter

This feat grants a significant 10 additional damage on top of a normal damage roll for all rolls coming from a ranged weapon, at the cost of a -5 to Attack Rolls. This is a must-have for any Rogue looking to wield a ranged weapon in combat.
