A big question for players coming into the RPG game, and for those familiar with the respec options in Divinity Original Sin 2, is are we able to, and how soon can we, respec our characters in Baldur’s Gate 3?
In the inevitability that we change our mind about our chosen BG3 class, or make a mistake with our character, having a respec option is a vital part of the game. DOS2 has the option to fully respec your character using a Magic Mirror available at the beginning of Act 2, but Larian Studios added an extra option in a further update for players to respec at the beginning of the game. Now that the Baldur’s Gate 3 release date is here, we finally know where and when we can respec n Baldur’s Gate 3.
Can you respec in Baldur’s Gate 3?
Yes, BG3 does have a respec option available early in act one. Players must meet with Withers at the Dank Crypt near the Overgrown Ruins. He charges players 100 gold to change class, though this pricing never changes regardless of how many times you use it.
Larian confirmed players would be able to respec their characters before the game launched. In a Panel From Hell: Release Showcase video, the studio said that they wanted to avoid players having to restart the whole game, and disturb the narrative experience.
They went on to say that a character “you will most likely meet” allows you to reset your class, reinvest the levels, and also experiment with multiclassing to create hybrid combinations of different classes.
That’s all you need to respec your character in Baldur’s Gate 3. In the meantime, here’s everything you need to know about BG3 races and which BG3 companions to look out for and recruit to your party.
