Creating a character with multiple classes, also known as multiclassing, is usually a preferred way to play the game in Dungeons & Dragons, and Baldur’s Gate 3 allows you to use multiple classes. Although your characters can only reach level 12, you have plenty of scope to create a multi-class character.
For some, it’s a difficult question which other class to use alongside their main class, and even more difficult to know when is the best time to do so. Here’s what you need to know about multiclassing in Baldur’s Gate 3 and when is the best time to do it.
This is how multiclass works in Baldur’s Gate 3
The multiclass system in Baldur’s Gate 3 works similar to the traditional Dungeons & Dragons system. As your character levels up, you can level them up in their starting class or level them up. For example, if your monk advances from level 4 to level 5, you can choose to advance to a different level of monk or take on a level of bard to become a level 4 monk and a level 1 bard.
You can do this at any time while playing Baldur’s Gate 3, only when your character has reached a level. The choice comes down to what type of character you want to create and what skills and talents you want to acquire. Your character gains the beneficial traits of each class level he has as the game progresses. So you should be careful when leveling up for certain classes.
How to complete multiple classes in Baldur’s Gate 3
The multiple classification option appears in two cases. The first is when your character levels up, and you can choose in the menu whether you want to switch to your character’s current class or if you want to assign them to a different class. The second time you can use multiple classes in Baldur’s Gate 3 is when you talk to Withers and ask him to switch classes. You’ll still have all the levels and experience your class had before the change, and you can always choose to improve certain things.
The option to choose a different class appears in the level up menu, where you can choose in the top left whether you want to level up in your character’s current class or choose a different one.
Best time to multiclass in Baldur’s Gate 3
Finding a good time to select a second class for your character in Baldur’s Gate 3 can be difficult. It all depends on your personal preferences, what character you want to design and when it’s convenient for you. I think it’s a good idea to start multiclassing when you’ve reached level 4 or 5 in your elementary school class. I want my Monk to reach level 5 first, unlock his Extra Attack feature and gain access to additional attacks to use such as Stunning Blow.
Most classes get some interesting features and spells that unlock when they reach level 5 in Baldur’s Gate 3. This might be the right point for almost all characters, but it’s not a strict rule. I recommend choosing what you think suits your party composition best. If you don’t like it, talk to Withers to change something. It’s really nice to see how flexible Baldur’s Gate 3 is when it comes to leveling and how much freedom you have to choose at any time.
