How to Multiclass in Baldur’s Gate 3?
Baldur’s Gate 3 allows players to choose from a variety of different classes, sub-classes, and skills. Even though the game features only 12 main classes, the addition of sub-classes and attributes can make for several creative choices when it comes to building your character. Apart from this, the game also allows you to multiclass which means players are allowed to switch between two different classes, making use of the skill sets present in both classes. This process can be quite overwhelming if you are new to DnD. Let's take a look at how to multiclass in the game along with the pros and cons that it offers.
How Does Multiclassing Work in Baldur’s Gate 3?
Multiclassing in Baldur’s Gate 3 closely follows the rules of 5e DnD. As they progress through the game, players can either focus on leveling up their primary class or choose a new class as long as they meet the requirements.
Players can reap the benefits of two different classes by using spells, attacks, and dialogue options that are available for both. You must also keep in mind that the game maxes out at level 12 for characters. If you are multiclassing, the levels of both classes will add up to 12. For example, if you choose to play as both a Druid and a Barbarian, you will have a level six Druid and Barbarian if you opt to split the levels among them. This means that you cannot fully max out the level in both classes. As a result, you cannot enjoy the benefits of a fully maxed-out Druid or a Barbarian
Keep in mind that you can only level up one class at a time, meaning you must alternate between your primary and secondary classes if you wish to maintain consistency between them. For example, if you have a level 2 Druid and a level 1 Barbarian, you must choose the latter if you want them to have the same levels. It all comes down to your choice, as the game does not really reward you for doing so.
How Do You Access Multiclassing in Baldur’s Gate 3?
You can access multiclassing as soon as your primary class reaches level 2. In the level-up screen, you will find an option called add class. As soon as you click on it you will see all of the class options you can choose from. You can also customize your subclass and other attributes from the same page.
Furthermore, if you join a multiplayer session, your multiclass build will match the level of your party, provided that the party is at level two or higher.
Baldur’s Gate 3 also allows you to respec your character at any part of your storyline, as long as you have access to wither and sufficient gold. Although multiclassing can be fun, if you are new to the world of DnD, we recommend you stick to your primary class or create an alternate save to experiment with a multiclass build.
