[RPG] the non-homebrew goblin with the highest CR


One player in my group has a character who absolutely hates goblins. He tracks them, and only want to find information about them.

We want to know what is the strongest, most difficult to beat goblin we can find, that is not homebrew.

Best Answer

The hobgoblin warlord is the highest CR goblinoid (CR 6).

You can find it in the Monster Manual on page 187.

If you're looking for just a goblin, the goblin boss and nilbog (Volo's, p. 182) represent the highest CR of 1.

I was able to find this quickly by utilizing D&D Beyond's search for Monsters and using the subtype for goblinoid and then sorting by CR.
