The primary way to open the Overgrown Ruins door & enter the area in BG3 is by lockpicking the ancient door (X:285 Y:304). To do so, you’ll need the Thieves Tools that you can give to a character with High Dexterity along with Sleight of Hand. And according to us, Astarion the Rouge Elf will fit perfectly for this job. With or without Astarion, the player will need to roll a Difficulty of 20 (D20), and then only the door will be unlocked. If you somehow failed to roll the required difficulty, then don’t worry below are some other ways that you can try.
