The witcher games tried to fight savescumming by not making a lot of consequences for your choices apparent right away. I think Bg3 can do the same with just a massive amount of rolls and by teaching players that a successful roll is not always the best result. There are too few of these cases in the game currently though.

I don't think the witcher one was designed like that to fight savescumming as while the consequence was far from the choice, they were pre-determined. There was no randomness. It's very much an interactive movie, people just had to look online to know what would happen to control the narrative and the game is very:
- Press A for good consequence
- Press B for bad consequence

There is already quite a bit of troll encounters in the game, especially for people ignorant of the Forgotten Realms lore, where the "good" choice (i.e. people live) is probably the terrible options for a good aligned character long term.
