Baldur’s Gate 3 – Things You Should to Know

Spoiler Free Tips and Tricks

Always be exploring

If there’s something you can do in an area; try & do it before you leave. The incidental XP you gain from just exploring & the encounters you find along the way adds up. By the time you’re getting to the mid game it’s at least a full character levels’ worth of xp. It doesn’t need to be said that being a higher level will make the encounters a little easier.

Loot & Sell

Loot as much as weight permits, even low value mundane items. The more you loot, the more you sell, the better gear you can afford for your party. And don’t be afraid to splurge on a nice item if it’ll make one of your party members more effective.

Party Composition

Can be really important. You don’t necessarily need the classical figher/wizard/cleric/rogue…. but you probably should cover the bases: Which means you probably want:

  • A frontliner: someone who can take hits & deal them.
  • A healer: does what it says on the tin.
  • A caster: a little bit of crowd control goes a very long way.
  • An utility: someone to pick locks, disarm traps…. doesn’t hurt if they can sneak around.
  • A face: Someone with at least reasonable dialogue skills who can converse on behalf of the party.

Note: might be that if you’re using some of the less “vanilla” classes in your party that you can cover all those bases on less than 4 characters, which is great… means you have a flex slot for whatever character you want to put in there.

Crowd control

I touched on this in the previous point, but it’s important: Especially at lower levels. Having someone in your party who can do aoe damage or inflict status effects on multiple enemies at once is really handy. It’s pretty easy to get mobbed in act 1, and it’s always painful when it happens. good use of aoe spells can really help to control a large mob, & make it engage you in a way that is more manageable.

As an addendum to this: look for environmental effects that can be abused. For example: see a barrel, full of anything that might explode or burn? if enemies are near that then you can use it to your advantage.
