Best Classes To Multiclass In Baldur’s Gate 3

Multiclassing is a great way to spice up characters in Baldur’s Gate 3. Here’s what combinations work best together.

While Baldur’s Gate 3 has just been released across multiple platforms, it was available on PC in early access for quite some time. During this time, the modding community has crafted countless add-ons to the game that make it just a little bit better. Some of the best mods add spells and tweaks to the magic system. Here are some of the best Spell mods for Baldur’s Gate 3.

Updated on March 2, 2024, by Mara Cowley: Baldur’s Gate 3 is by now a game people have already completed multiple times over, but are not quite ready to part ways with their Tav and party. One popular way to experience a game in a new and exciting way is to add mods that can alter customization, characters, graphics, quests, and gameplay. Spells make up a big part of the combat mechanics in BG3, as there are characters in the party that can cast spells, and players can choose casters as their own class, which are usually popular classes among D&D and RPG players. Players can make their casting gameplay refreshing and exciting with the spell mods in this article, which has been updated to include even more mods that are well worth players’ attention.

11 Permanent Speak With Animals by Joco

Speak With Animals Last Forever

Who doesn’t love animals? These furry friends littered across the world of Faerun are loved by fans far and wide, and those with Speak with Animals can talk to these cuddly four-legged friends to enjoy their companionship even more so.

Unfortunately, players would have to expend a spell slot each time they long-rested if they wanted to speak to a creature, which means one less spell slot for situations such as combat. While it is certainly a worthy use of a spell slot, many players probably wished it would last forever so it didn’t need to be recast. This is exactly what Joco’s Permanent Speak With Animals did, as now it would be something players had innately rather than until they took a long rest.

10 More Spell Slots by FrozenLayer

More Spells Can Be Cast Per Day

Spell slots are a necessary resource for players controlling a casting class, as it is what they expend when casting a spell of first level or above. They are finite, and as such can run out in the midst of exploration or combat, forcing players to resort to cantrips or flee to safety until they can short or long rest to replenish the spell slots they lost.


Baldur’s Gate 3: Which Class Is The Best At Magic?

BG3 has many great classes for spellcasting. But which is the best?

It can be rather disruptive to constantly have to stop to rest and replenish spent resources which players can only do if they have enough camping supplies anyway. This is why the More Spell Slots mod is so useful, as now players have double the spell slots they would normally have.

9 Tressym Familiar by Sailor Cat

Players Can Summon A Magical Creature

Baldur's Gate 3 Tressym

Tressym’s are fascinating creatures in D&D, as they are adorable winged cat creatures thought to bring about good luck and hunt down rodents. Before the Tressym Familiar mod, they weren’t available to summon as a familiar in BG3, but this mod changes that.

Now when players cast the find familiar spell, they can choose to summon a tressym if they wish, which has the ability to fly as well as spot invisible creatures, which can be particularly useful when in combat with enemies that can cast invisibility.

8 Counterspell – Reaction Only by BitterPast

Counterspell No Longer Costs a Spell Slot

Baldur's Gate 3

Counterspell is a clutch spell in D&D, as it can render an enemy’s spell null by canceling the effects, even though the spell slot has been expended. However, counterspell also costs a spell slot, so it does have some cost on the caster’s side as well.

BitterPast’s Counterspell mod changes this, however, by reducing the cost of counterspell to a reaction only. Now, players can burn an enemy’s spell slot without spending their own, so they can save them for dealing damage and healing allies.

This mod by Kaiju12345 doesn’t break the mold of the game as much as it shifts combat more in the player’s favor. Many spells in Baldur’s Gate 3 require characters to take a long rest to recoup the spell slots they have expended.

5 Learn Racial Spells By Tyhammer125

Racial Spells Treated Like Learned Spells

The learn Racial Spells mod tweaks the spell system in Baldur’s Gate 3 and makes it lean a bit more into the Table Top RPG, allowing characters to class their racial spells with spell slots. Typically, racial Spells are once per-long rest abilities.

This mod removes that limitation and makes them castable by using available spell slots for characters. This allows for more options for character both in and out of combat. Learn Racial Spells is available on Nexus Mods.

Players No Longer Need To Concentrate On Spells
