How to Level Up
If you’re not sure how to level your character up, this portion of our guide is for you. However, if you’re looking for some tips on how to reach that level 4 max cap in the early access release, check the next section below. Once you’ve leveled up, you’ll get a notification telling you, and a nice little white plus on your portrait at the bottom left corner. There should be a white plus over every character’s portrait assuming you’re not leveling a new companion.
Once you click that white plus over the portrait of a character you want to level up, you’ll see a new screen. This is the leveling screen with information on what new spells, hit points, and more that your character is gaining. Their character sheet is partially shown on the left side of the screen. While the right side is where you mostly want to look in case there’s anything you want to change.
Depending on what class character you’re leveling, you may also have a chance early on to pick a subclass. Be sure to take your time and realize what opportunities are available. You may be able to pick new spells, new proficiencies, and/or a feat. Feats allow you to improve a character’s ability score or pick a Feat like Dual Wielder, for example.
