How to perform the highest damage move in BG3

To perform the highest damage move in BG3, first find a spot that is above your enemies. In the next step, you need to stack some boxes. Once the boxes are stacked, climb them and use Shapeshift skill to turn into an owlbear. 

Cast enlarge on your character to increase their size. Use Crushing flight ability to negate all fall damage. Once everything is set up, use jump to come crashing down on your enemies. Make sure to get a vantage point that is as high as possible. Baldur’s Gate 3 is very lenient with fall damage and all of it can be absorbed if you use Crushing Flight efficiently. 


Depending on the size of your owlbear form and the height you have gained, you can do up to 1100 bludgeoning damage easily. For reference, red dragons in Baldur’s Gate 3 have 250 HP. And they can easily kill a level 16 party. The owlbear from the top rope in BG3 does more than enough damage to kill a red dragon, or Raphael who is the highest HP enemy in the game. This is the highest amount of damage you can do with a move in BG3 and can simply destroy even the toughest enemies in a blink. Oh, did we mention how cool this move looks in action?
