Introduction


Welcome to my Baldur's Gate 3 Steam page. On this page you'll find useful information on how to make character builds for the game. I made this page mainly for my own amusement, and for me to refer to. I shared it to be helpful to others. If you have any questions, please post them in the comments section. Note that my builds typically do not use respecs by design - that is to say, they do not incorporate regular respecs at certain level intervals which change the character in a significant way.

Update: I have updated the second party - note that it's meant for Honour mode, and using my complete mod list. The first and second parties are basically complete at this point. I will eventually get around to finishing the third party - I have an idea for that one involving four wizards who aren't allowed to wear armour.
-=- Summoner Party -=-
The concept here is to have a party of full spellcasters capable of summoning some really nice creatures. It's designed for a 'Good' playthrough on Tactician difficulty where you save the Tieflings and the Druid Grove, though you could adapt it if you preferred to play otherwise. Illithid power use is optional - in fact I recommend not using them, to preserve ... some challenge, at least. Dark Urge is not essential. Overall this party is meant to be very flexible and easy to play for beginners, rather than doing the most damage possible for example. It's viable for Honour mode, also, but bear in mind that Wild Shape does a lot less damage in that mode.

Party Roles
  • Virtuoso (Tav): Ranged Damage, CC, Utility
  • Keeper (Jaheira): Tank, Melee Damage, Versatile Spellcaster
  • Custodian (Shadowheart): Tank, Defensive Spellcaster
  • Battlemage (Gale): Versatile Spellcaster
Virtuoso
  • Crowd Control specialist, master of many skills, party face and wearer of stylish outfits.
  • Offers awesome utility, very good initiative & decent AC. Immune to Critical Hits.
  • Absolutely insane single-target damage at range using Slashing Flourish.
  • Generates Spell DC from physical attacks, although this is mostly useful in Act 3.
  • Casts disabling crowd-control spells as a bonus action in Act 3 using Mystic Scoundrel.
  • For the majority of the game, your spells will function as utility, e.g. Enhance Ability.
  • Song of Rest helps fuel Keeper's Wild Shape charges and Custodian's heals.
  • Weaknesses: lacks significant melee capability, quite squishy, weak saves.
Keeper
  • A powerful shapeshifter with a potent blend of offensive and defensive abilities.
  • Deals reasonable physical damage in Wild Shape, and is quite tough to kill.
  • Excellent battlefield control using Plant Growth, Confusion, and other spells.
  • Summons such as Conjure Woodland Being and Conjure Elemental are very useful.
  • Use any character you like for this build until you get Jaheira in Act 2.
  • Weaknesses: lacks significant AOE damage, unable to cast spells while shifted.
Custodian
  • Powerful healing spells which propagate Bless and Resistance to physical damage.
  • Great utility spells and summoning capability.
  • Has access to Haste, Shield, Magic Missile and other great Wizard spells from level 1.
  • Immune to Critical Hits, and extremely durable, especially with Arcane Ward active.
  • Weaknesses: lacks offensive power, reliant on spell slots, slightly delayed Cleric spells.
Battlemage
  • Magic Missile and Artistry of War are very powerful single-target damage spells.
  • In Act 3, spell DC will ramp up significantly allowing effective use of other spells.
  • Heavy Armor Proficiency gives excellent AC right from the start of the game.
  • Is basically immune to Concentration breaks from level 5 onwards - very useful for Haste.
  • Weaknesses: somewhat reliant on spell slots, slightly delayed spell progression.

    • Location: Dropped by Cazador Szarr. Until you get this, Knife of the Undermountain King (Sold by A'jak'nir Jeera in Crèche Y'llek - also she apparently drops this when you kill her) is exceptional, and you can also wield the Hill Giant Strength Club.
  • Shield: Adamantine Shield (Shield, Immunity to Critical Hits, melee attackers sent Reeling)
    • Location: Act 1, forged in The Adamantine Forge with a Shield Mould and Mithral Ore.
  • Special: Drakethroat Glaive (+2 Glaive, buff a weapon +1 to Attack Rolls & 1D4 elemental dmg until next Long Rest - recommend Thunder or Acid)

  • Ranged Weapon: The Dead Shot (+2 Longbow, critical requirement reduced by 1, add double proficiency to attack rolls)
    • Location: Sold by Fytz the Firecracker at the Stormshore Armoury in Lower City. Before you obtain this weapon and the Mystic Scoundrel ring, you should use dual Hand Crossbows. The TWF Fighting Style allows you to dual wield these effectively early on. You can also switch to the Titanstring Bow once you unlock Extra Attack, and start using your Bonus Action on Healing Word.
  • Head: Helmet of Arcane Acuity (+1 to DEX saves; gain two turns of Arcane Acuity (boosts Spell DC by amount equal to remaining turns) when you damage an enemy - this triggers twice when you use Slashing Flourish)
    • Location: Mason's Guild underground, in a chest. During the quest Investigate the Selûnite Resistance.Use the Warped Headband of Intellect for skill checks (from the Ogres in the Blighted Village - this item is easy to miss). Use the Marksmanship Hat if you need the extra attack roll bonus.
  • Cloak: Cloak of the Weave (+1 to Spell DC and Spell Attack rolls, halve elemental damage 1x/Short Rest)
    • Location: Sold by the demonologist called Helsik who takes you to Raphael's house, she has a shop called the Devil's Fee.

      Until you obtain this, you can use the Yuan-Ti armor from Talli in the Last Light Inn (CH2).
  • Gloves: Legacy of the Masters (+2 Attack/Damage rolls, +1 STR saves)
    • Location: Act 3, purchase from Dammon. Be careful, you can lose access to this guy. Don't kill the ox in Act 1, for example. Until you get this, use the Gloves of Archery (Bought from Grat the Trader in the Goblin Camp), then the Wondrous Gloves (Grymforge).
  • Boots: Evasive Shoes (+1 Acrobatics, +1 AC)
    • Location: Sold by Mattis at the Last Light Inn.
  • Amulet: Broodmother's Revenge (+1D6 Poison damage on-hit )
    • Location: Act 1, looted from Kagha. In situations where you face poison-immune enemies or you want to use a different weapon coating (e.g. Oil of Accuracy), you can use Amulet of the Harpers.
  • Ring1: Flexible Ring Slot (Use depending on situation)
    • Location: Caustic Band (Myconid Colony) is great early on. There are a variety of rings that are useful in this slot as you head into the lategame. For example, Ring of Arcane Synergy (Githyanki Creche) can give up to 5 damage if you use Vicious Mockery with your BA, Crypt Lord Ring (Keep Thrumbo alive) gives you a free summon, and the Risky Ring (Araj Oblodra, Moonrise Towers) is great for free ADV (though is a bit.. risky. Obviously).
  • Ring2: Band of the Mystic Scoundrel (1x Enchantment/Illusion spell as bonus action on-hit)
    • Location: Start of Act 3, in same area as the legendary trident (djinn). Until you get this item, use one of the other rings mentioned above.
  • Special: Bless Statue (Grants Bless until Long Rest)
    • Location: Pay Boney in the Circus of the Last Days 5000 gold to construct a statue of yourself, then look at the statue to gain the buff.

    • Location: This weapon can be found stabbed into a rock in the Underdark (X:116, Y:-192) and can be freed by passing either A) DC 15 Strength check to yank it from the stone. or B) DC 15 Religion check to learn how to release the magic holding it in place.)

    • Location: Baldur's Gate, Lower City, House of Grief. Drops from Viconia. Until you get this, use the Adamantine Shield from Act 1 (Adamantine Forge).
  • Ranged Weapon: Darkfire Shortbow (+2 Shortbow, resistance to Fire/Cold, Haste 1x/LR)
    • Location: Sold by Dammon in at the Last Light Inn stables X: -35 Y: 169. Only take this from Keeper once they have obtained Gontr Mael.
  • Head: Helm of Balduran (+1 AC, +1 to all saves, +2 HP at start of turn, stun & crit immunity)
    • Location: Legend of Ansur questline in Act 3. Go to Wyrm's Rock prison and find two dragon torches. Shoot lightning at both to reveal a secret passage. Until you get this, Holy Lance Helm is great.

  • Armor: Reaper's Embrace (Heavy Armor, -2 incoming damage, Immunity to forced movement, DISADV on DEX saves, Howl of the Dead 1x/SR)

Note: you must agree to stealing the idol initially when Mol asks you. Another tip regarding this quest: do not under any circumstances go speak to Mol before you complete the quests saving the various Tiefling children. If you do, he will never stop counting down and you will end up locked out of the quest.

  • Head: Hood of the Weave (+2 to Spell DC and Spell Attack rolls)
    • Location: Act 3: Philgrave's Mansion, purchase from Mystic Carrion. Until you get this, Fistbreaker Helm is a good item from Lann Tarv in the Moonrise Towers (CH2), and Grym's helm is nice in Act 1.

    • Location: Crèche Y'llek, from A'jak'nir Jeera. Note: apparently she always drops these gloves when you kill her.

-=- Martial Party -=-
A party of martial builds that follow one rule - no class or subclass that has spell slots is allowed. This group is designed for a morally grey playthrough where you save the Tieflings and the Druid Grove but are not necessarily a 'good guy'. Dark Urge and Illithid power use is strongly recommended. This party is intended for use in Honour mode and with my recommended mod list - scroll down to check it out. Be warned, this will be an extremely challenging run, and you will most likely die, but bear in mind that you can always continue in Dishonour mode; you only lose the golden dice.

Party Roles
  • Magus (Dark Urge): Melee Damage, CC
  • Zealot (Shadowheart): Tank, Self-Healing, CC
  • Slayer (Kree Derryck): Melee Damage, Utility
  • Corsair (Lae'zel): Ranged Damage, CC
Magus
  • This build combines a strong Open Hand Monk/Thief multiclass with Illithid spellcasting.
  • It has a very decent spell save DC by the end of the game, sacrificing little physical power.
  • Weaknesses: relatively fragile, mediocre AC, no persuasion capability.
Zealot
  • Functions as a powerful self-healing tank, encouraging enemies to attack it with Advantage.
  • Has deliberately low AC to encourage aggro, but can hit multiple enemies to regain HP fast.
  • Inflicts Bleed and Maim at the same time, which gives allies Advantage on their attacks.
  • Weaknesses: mediocre damage output, vulnerable to some status effects, low DEX save.
Slayer
  • Stealthy assassin capable of destroying enemies in a few hits from invisibility.
  • Can theoretically go invisible an infinite number of times - only restricted per encounter.
  • Reasonable defenses against paralysis and charm.
  • Weaknesses: relatively fragile, mediocre AC, vulnerable to some status effects.
Corsair
  • Powerful ranged damage combined with excellent debuffs from Battle Master maneuvers.
  • Has extremely high AC, discouraging enemy attacks, and reasonable spell defenses.
  • Has a reasonably high critical hit chance.
  • Weaknesses: n/a.

Tips For Playthrough Progression - SPOILER WARNING
Act 1
  • If you decide to sever Gale's hand as the Dark Urge, keep it. It's ... useful, later on.
  • If you intend to get the Ring of Protection, you must agree to stealing the idol initially when Mol asks you. Also, do not enter the underground cave to speak to Mol before you complete the quests saving the various Tiefling children.
  • Don't forget to seek out the Zhents in order to buy the items Titanstring Bow and Gloves of Thievery from Brem, the Zhentarim trader. You'll need to speak to Zarys first.
  • Try to obtain the Hag Hair from Ethel. If you fail, you'll need to modify the Corsair build by switching the Archery Expert feat for an ASI (+2 DEX). Be careful when negotiating with her - you mustn't use Guidance or any other spell that is triggered through the possible ability checks, otherwise her Legendary ability will trigger and you'll lose the hair. It's best not to try to save Mayrina, since this group doesn't have a Persuasion specialist and she doesn't really matter anyway.
Act 2
  • When you speak to Disciple Z'rell in Moonrise Towers, you'll get an opportunity to ask her for extra aid. You might need to activate Detect Thoughts for this. You'll need to pass a DC18 Persuasion check, and possibly an Insight check as well - you'll most likely need to use an additional party member who's specialised in Persuasion. As a reward for your efforts, Lann Tarv will offer a very nice shortsword for sale.
Act 3
  • Ensure you speak to the Strange Ox in Act 1 and 2 and keep it alive. Do not forget to speak to the Ox before leaving Rivington, in a stable at X: 41 Y: -143. An Arcana check might be required for this step. The reward for this is that the creature will help you in the final battle at the end of Act 3.
  • You must not have Shadowheart in your party when attemping to talk to Ferg Drogher. In addition, a Persuasion check must be passed. If successful, you can buy the Hellrider Longbow from him. If your Shadowheart stayed loyal to Shar then don't worry about this.
  • You'll need to agree to commit a murder for the Impress the Murder Tribunal quest, but don't worry, it has basically no ramifications. Make sure you have Gale's hand on ... hand. Otherwise, you'll need to procure a hand from somewhere else. You can come back later and kill Sarevok if you like.

  • Gloves: Legacy of the Masters (+2 Attack/Damage rolls, +1 STR saves)
    • Location: Act 3, purchase from Dammon. Be careful, you can lose access to this guy. Don't kill the ox in Act 1, for example. Until you get these, use Reason's Grasp (The Risen Road X: 37 Y: 644) for some easy temporary HP in a pinch.

Worgfang is useful in Shattered Sanctum (Worg Pens); Shortsword of First Blood is conditionally strong (Underdark, X:73, Y:-187), and in Act 2 you can pick up Sword of Life Stealing (Dammon) and Render of Mind and Body (Lann Tarv, requires persuasion of Disciple Z'rell).
  • Off-hand: Belm (+2 Scimitar, use your bonus action to attack with main hand)
    • Location: Found in an Opulent Chest X: -1572 Y: 976 in Jaheira's Basement under Elerrathin's Home in the Lower City. The chest is in a room behind a DC18 locked bookcase X: -1562 Y: 980. Note that although this character is not proficient with Scimitars, they can still use the Perfectly Balanced Strike ability.

    • Location: Rewarded by Mol for completing the quest Steal the Sacred Idol. Complete the 'Investigate Kagha' quest first, then stealing the idol is much easier. Note: you must agree to stealing the idol initially when Mol asks you. Another tip regarding this quest: do not under any circumstances go speak to Mol before you complete the quests saving the various Tiefling children. If you do, he will never stop counting down and you will end up locked out of the quest.
  • Ring2: Smuggler's Ring (+2 Stealth & Sleight of Hand)
    • Location: Act 1, looted from a Skeleton hidden in a bush on the lower path following the river, near the broken bridge section at The Risen Road (X:57, Y:514).

-=- Pacifist Party -=-
Cyric, trickster god and eternal enemy of Bhaal, has cursed the Bhaalspawn. As part of this curse, the Dark Urge and his three allies are unable to inflict damage directly upon their enemies. Instead, they must rely on indirect attacks such as poison or disease, or summoned minions who may carry out their masters' wishes without such restrictions on their attacks.

A party of spellcasters who follow a simple rule: no action may deal direct damage to the enemy. This means any spell that does direct damage must not be learned or memorized, and no physical attacks may be made that are primarily dealing damage. This party is designed for Honour mode using the Honour Features Unlocker mod so that additional settings can be applied such as increased Long Rest supplies used per rest.

EXTRA: Tips, Tricks & Info
Withers' Generosity
Withers charges 100G for respecs, and 200G for a hireling. This can be pretty steep early on when you don't have a very fat coinpurse. Luckily, he totally doesn't mind if you pickpocket the gold back! This is confirmed as working in Honour mode on the latest patch.

BOOOAL's Benediction Without The Sacrifice
So usually in order to get this you have to sacrifice a companion, which isn't ideal. However, there is a method to get the buff for everyone. You just have to steal the sickle from the NPC 'Pooldrip the Zealous' before succeeding at the Persuasion check (DC20) "I have but one life but I can kill many others in your name", which is gotten by choosing the dialogue choice "Wait if it's blood you want I can make another offer!". Apparently you can do this easily by initiating dialogue while your pickpocketer is far from the group, then making the thief go invisible then stealing the sickle. The game then changes the reward for succeeding at the Persuasion check from the sickle (which the NPC no longer has) to the Benediction buff. Thanks to Reddit user AirBrief9775 and YouTuber PTSDwhiskey for this one.

Guaranteed Spoiler Hair
A certain NPC in Act 1 (Ethel the Hag) can grant you a powerful boon if you talk to them before killing them. However, it's a bit frustrating at times determining who the NPC will talk to when the event occurs. A speech check is involved, so if the NPC talks to the wrong team member, it can be very annoying, especially on Honour mode. Luckily, enterprising players have figured out that it is the party member who specifically reduces the NPC's hit points past the surrender threshold (about 30 HP) who will be spoken to. (Thanks Grizzsnipez on Reddit)

Twinned Drakethroat Glaive
I think most people have figured out that you can cast the Drakethroat Glaive buff on any weapon by now. Simply drop the target weapon on the floor and cast the buff directly onto it. However, what you might not be aware of is that you can Twin this action. Give the Glaive to a Sorcerer, and put two weapons on the floor. Now Twin the buff action, and target the two weapons (remember to pick up your weapons!). Amazing stuff. Thanks to AdditionalMess6546 on Reddit for this tip.

Time-Sensitive Quests & Encounters Guide
Incredible guide created by Steam user Maxi. It details all of the events and quests that are missable if you aren't careful. Please give him an upvote for his efforts.

Doom Hammer Anti-Undead Weapon
The Doom Hammer maul that is bought from Grat The Trader in the Goblin Camp might not seem like a very powerful weapon initially, but the devil is in the details. The condition it inflicts, 'Bone Chilled', prevents healing and, if the target is Undead, gives it Disadvantage on Attack rolls. This condition is always inflicted on attack because of the maul's Tenacity effect, so you can put it on literally any character regardless of their martial power (well, they need proficiency). This anti-healing effect is useful against many powerful enemies, such as Cazador (Act 3) and the Lava Elemental (Act 1-ish). The Disadvantage-on-attack effect is useful against enemies such as Ketheric Thorm (Act 2), and again Cazador.

Infinite Haste Without Concentration
Usually when you use a Haste potion, you suffer the Lethargic condition at the end of the duration. However, if you use another potion on the end of your last turn of Haste, you suffer the Lethargic condition immediately and then it goes away! So you can chain together Haste potions in this way and never suffer Lethargic. It costs you your bonus action every few turns, and of course you need enough Haste potions to do it. Worth doing for tricky boss fights.

Tricks Using The Flail of Ages
So the Flail of Ages is a legendary weapon in Baldur's Gate 2; one of the best weapons in the game. In BG3 it's a little different, unfortunately. Not only is this weapon quite weak, only having a +1 enchantment, but it's also gotten extremely late in the game, in Act 3. You wouldn't normally use a +1 weapon at this point, so it seems like it's useless. However, there are a few tricks you can employ. First of all, if you want to use the weapon regardless, you can make it a bit better by equipping the Caustic Band item which gives +2 Acid damage. This will trigger the FoA's -2 armor effect regardless of which Elemental Age buff you chose. Secondly, you can use this weapon to buff your other weapons, similar to Drakethroat Glaive, but you need the Dual Wielder feat. Equip the FoA in your offhand and cast Elemental Age - it will affect your main hand weapon. You can then unequip the FoA and the buff will remain.

Cold Damage And The Snowburst Ring
When you have the Snowburst Ring equipped and cause cold damage to an enemy, an ice patch is created under their feet. Usually this would be achieved by a spell, but you can do the same with a weapon that deals cold damage. Also, any weapon can be enchanted by the Drakethroat Glaive to do cold damage by simply having a party member equip that weapon, then use the glaive's ability on their friend's weapon. When you attack with your cold-enchanted weapon, the target will immediately have to make a save against the ice to avoid becoming prone. The DC now scales off the character's spellcasting modifier. It's better to use this combo on a ranged weapon, because melee weapons can cause blood pools which replace the ice patches.

Arcane Ward Is Incredibly Powerful, Especially With Armor of Agathys
Arcane Ward has been modified for BG3 and is even more powerful than its pen-and-paper 5E counterpart. It gives you 'layers' of extra hitpoints that correspond to your Wizard level. Every time you get hit, you lose a layer, a bit like peeling an onion. When you get to higher levels, you can absorb a tremendous amount of damage. Better yet, if you have Armor of Agathys, the Arcane Ward protects your AoA spell - damage is subtracted from it, before AoA. However, any damage taken still triggers AoA's cold damage. It's the best possible situation. You could dip Warlock to obtain AoA, or perhaps take a special feat.

Get Disguise Self For Free
There is a free hat that gives Disguise Self for free, very early on. It's found in the Traveller's Chest at your Campsite, if you own the Digital Deluxe Upgrade. It's called Mask of the Shapeshifter.
EXTRA: Permanent Bonuses
Permanent Bonuses
  • At certain points in the game, permanent free ability score bonuses can be obtained.
  • I'll list them here, but bear in mind that they will contain spoiler information.
  • Bear in mind that, AFAIK, once assigned they cannot be removed/changed by respec.
  • There is also a really great summary here: https://bg3.wiki/wiki/Permanent_Bonuses
  • Hag's Hair: fight the Hag and then accept her surrender. +1 to any stat. Breaks your Paladin oath, but only if the Paladin is the one doing the talking. Also: if you intimidate her into giving you the girl AND her hair, this will also break your Paladin oath. In any case, Oathbreaking is not a big deal in this game.
  • Ersatz Eye: let Volo attempt surgery on you. Permanent See Invisibility. Note that you must have two normal eyes in order for this to work.
  • Potion of Everlasting Vigor: Gives +2 STR. Take Astarion to see a Drow called Araj Oblodra on the main floor of Moonrise Towers who wants to be bitten by him. Astarion might need some persuading. IMPORTANT: this item can raise your STR beyond 20! So if you use it when you already have 20 STR, you will go up to 22... amazing. This will upset Astarion a little.
  • Loviatar Buff: Put on a show and impress the masochist Abdirak in the Goblin Castle (Shattered Sanctum). +2 WIS saves & Attack rolls when under 30% HP.
  • The Mirror of Loss: There are some great guides on YT on how to get this bonus but basically it's +2 to any stat, you get cursed with a -2 but it can be removed with a Remove Curse spell. Just follow Shadowheart's quest and head to the House of Grief, and interact with the mirror. You'll need the circlet which gives 17 INT, and as many skill bonuses as you can get your hands on, to succeed. Interacting with the Necromancy of Thay book before this, gives you an easier time as you can sacrifice the memory from the book instead and thus not have to pass the Religion check.
    Apparently you can also choose to sacrifice the knowledge from another book called the Tharchiate Codex, which is found in Sorcerous Sundries.

  • The Mirror of Loss (Additional +1): So, some people on Discord discovered that there is a way to get an additional +1 to CHA only, by speaking to an NPC, a confused merchant named Arves, who is in the northwestern corner of the Lower City, north of the Baldur's Gate waypoint. (X:-252, Y:-2). By speaking to this NPC, you gain the option to get an additional +1 CHA from the mirror. The exact details on this are a little hazy - I'll add more info here once I discover it for myself. It may be that being a Dark Urge character has some additional dialogue, or more significance.
  • Necromancy of Thay: Read all three pages of the book found in a hidden area in the Apothecary's Cellar beneath the Blighted Village. Speak With Dead 1x/Long Rest, +1 WIS saves & checks.
  • BOOOAL's Benediction: Sacrifice a companion to BOOOAL in The Festering Cove. Gives ADV on attack rolls vs Bleeding targets. This buff is given to all present party members, and it is lost upon death. You can only use legit companions, not Hirelings. This buff is of particular interest to Tiger Heart Barbarians because they can inflict Bleed really easily.
  • Permanent Bless: Apparently there is a stone mephit in the Act 3 Carnival area that will create a statue of your character for 5000g. Once created, this grants your character a permanent Bless spell. Update: apparently this has been changed to a buff that only lasts until your next Long Rest - you have to activate the statue to receive it.
  • Permanent +2 Saving Throws: You pay 5000 gold to one of the god statues in Stormshore Tabernacle (Act 3) and receive this buff on each character when you pray at the statue. You have to go back to the statue after each long rest so it's not really permanent.

EXTRA: Mod Installation Instructions
The best way to use mods with BG3 is using the program BG3 Mod Manager (BG3MM) which you can download here[github.com]. Follow the installation instructions on the Github page carefully.

The next step is to download and install mods to the right directory. Mods in BG3 come in two different forms - loose files, or .PAK files. Loose files are installed to BG3's Steam directory, where they act as overrides for the game's base files. For example, my loose file mods are installed here:
A:\Steam\steamapps\common\Baldurs Gate 3\Data

These mods tend to be files that replace the game's textures, or other similar changes. Uninstalling these files mid-playthrough is safe, as once they are removed, the game's base files are restored automatically (or more accurately, cease being overridden).

The other type of mod is a .PAK file which is installed using BG3MM and is not safe to uninstall mid-playthrough. These .PAK mods are installed to the Windows user directory; for example in my case they are installed to the following directory:
C:\Users\Yosharian\AppData\Local\Larian Studios\Baldur's Gate 3\Mods

You might have to create this 'Mods' directory as it might not exist by default. Once you've installed the .PAK files to this directory, you then need to load up BG3MM and move the mods from the right pane (Inactive Mods) to the left pane (Active Mods) and then go to File->Export Order To Game. You're then ready to play with your mods enabled.

As I said, .PAK mods can't be removed from your savegame. This poses a problem as, when the game updates, which it does automatically if you're using the Steam version, your mods will most likely break, resulting in a broken savegame file which can't be salvaged.

So in order to continue a playthrough safely when Larian updates the game, we need a way of launching the game without using the game's default launcher, as when you load that launcher, Steam will automatically start updating BG3. Your first step is to make sure that BG3 isn't set to update automatically. The update will still be there waiting to be installed, but it will never begin updating as long as you don't load the vanilla launcher.

The next step is to use BG3MM to launch the game, instead of the vanilla launcher. This is as simple as loading up BG3MM, and clicking the little BG3 icon that's next to the Shortcuts button on the toolbar. This will load up the game without ever touching the vanilla launcher, so your game won't update. This way you can continue to play the game and finish your playthrough without the game updating automatically and breaking your save.

For reference, this is the load order I am using in BG3MM. However, I have carefully selected mods that do not conflict, so a tuned load order should not be necessary.

EXTRA: Attunement Challenge

This is a fun way to play the game for players looking for an extra challenge, especially in the late game where you are drowning in powerful magical items. The concept comes from D&D 5E rules, where magical items of sufficient power must be 'attuned' to, before they can be used. Attuning to a magical item binds it to you, and takes time spent at rest to accomplish. Only by attuning to these items can they be used. Not all items require attunement, only the most powerful ones. This is an important part of 5E's balance, and by throwing it out of the window I believe Larian have done themselves a disservice (I get it though, restricting players runs contrary to Larian's 'fun at all costs' approach).

Anyway, here are the rules:
  • Each item in the game has an attunement value.
  • This is a measure of how powerful the item is.
  • Add the points for each item you have attuned to, to get your character's attunement total.
  • Your character's attunement total signifies how challenging the game will be.
  • Any item that has an attunement value of 0 can be equipped and unequipped at will.
  • Items with a value of 1 or more can't be used unless 'attuned' to while resting at camp.
  • You are allowed to equip and unequip attuned items at will.
  • I recommend around 5 points as a maximum, for a good challenge.

  • Total Maximum Melee Damage: 24.04 (+50.8) = 74.84
  • Total Damage Added By Savage Attacker: 6.25
Damage Per Round Breakdown (while Hasted, includes Savage Attacker):
  • +74.84: 1st attack using Divine Smite (5D8)
  • +74.84: 2nd attack using Divine Smite (5D8)
  • +70.84: 3rd attack using Divine Smite (5D8)
  • +65.59: 4th attack using Divine Smite (4D8)
  • +65.59: 5th attack using Divine Smite (4D8)
  • Total Maximum Melee Damage: 351.7
  • Total Damage Added By Savage Attacker: 29.75
  • Note: this damage calculation assumes max level and doesn't use up the 5th-level spell slot that the build has at this level because when you use a 5th-level slot for Divine Smite, you get no extra benefit compared to a 4th-level spell slot. So, you should probably use that spell slot for something else, such as an upcast Armor of Agathys.

DUMPING GROUND
This is my dumping area for information for future builds or party ideas. Just ignore it.

To do:
- test how viable it is to have Elixir of Heroism on 100% uptime

- investigate Swires Sledboard / Rippling Mail as an Arcane Ward strategy. how many turns you get from the shield each turn? how to get AC up to the point where enemy ignores you? how to make use of STR?

AC calc
17 armor
3 shield
3 ring + cloak + helm
5 shield sp
9 MI

Concept:
- everyone is resistant to everything (nearly)
- enemy can target anyone with limited effect
- functionally immune to WIS attacks
- attrition strategies
1: Padlock/pure Paladin heavy armour master (Persistence armour) primary tank
- BA transfuse health
- Adam shield
- Darkfire Shortbow + Dragonborn race (lightning)
2: Tempest Cleric conc Beacon of Hope (WIS), HAM (Dwarven Splintmail)
- BA heals
- Orphic Warhammer
- Adam shield
3: Bardlock Lore (Astarion or Shield race? Or Dwarf to equip Orphic?)
- BA Warden of Vitality?
- Helldusk Armor & Helmet
- replaces Cleric???
4: Life Cleric/Wizard tank (Gale), HAM (Rippling Force Mail)
- BA heals
- Vicky Shield, Reviving Hands, Bald helm
- Fire Shield + Lightning ring
- Warding Bond on 2+3

Crit build info from Discord:

class: champion fighter 3
mainhand: bloodthirst
offhand: knife of the undermountain king
ranged: the dead shot
cloak: shade-slayer cloak (only works while hidden)
hat: dark justiciar helmet (only works while obscured) / sarevok's horned helmet (always works)
gloves: deadly channeller gloves (-2 in one item) these do not appear to exist in the game world. i am keeping them here for posterity but not counting them towards the total.
consumable: elixir of viciousness

= 15 crit range without elixir and not hiding:
51.00% crit chance with advantage

= 14 crit range, with elixir or while hidden:
57.75% crit chance with advantage

= 13 crit range, with elixir and while hidden:
64.00% crit chance with advantage

I might find some time to put in some details tomorrow but the basic idea is to have Sorc Durge as a controller/DPS, basically Ethan's Sorc build, then a paladin Minthara acting as a tank. But I haven't got further than that really at the moment

@Yosharian: The latter, I wanted an idea for how the party was going to be since I haven't really done a durge playthrough (so why not do it in my first honour run too lmao), and I was going to use your team comp for it, but wasn't sure how you were going to change up minthara so just thought I'd ask, thank for your time.

@D493: not a dumb ask at all. My plan for the Minthara party is to make Durge a Sorc, and have Minthara be a Padlock. I just haven't got around to putting the details in yet. Originally I was going for the opposite (Padlock Durge/Sorc Minthara) but I changed my mind. Are you asking because you want an EB build, or because you want an idea for the party overall?

sorry if this is a dumb ask, but could you give like a quick overview of how you're going to update the oppressor minthara build? like are the items going to stay the same and what is going to be the multiclass going to be?

@Shon: I haven't got around to filling out that build. What do you need help with specifically? I can tell you that I'll be modelling that character more or less based on Ethan's Reddit guide. I'll put a link to it right at the bottom of the page.

Just to check is the Sorcerer Dark Urge empty? Could use some assistance down that build.

@themoneystore: I have some build ideas for Evil Dark Urge, I just have my hands full finishing my Bard playthrough and tweaking those builds. IRL issues also. But they are coming.

That's kinda unfortunate, was gonna give those a go for evil honor mode durge after I finish with my redemption durge using the martial party

@themoneystore: doesn't matter really. By the way that build was nerfed into the ground so you shouldn't use it.

Hey man just a question, you've stated draconic sorc for stuff like Oppressor Minathra but don't state what draconic bloodline we should be taking, any pointers as to which one?
