Baldur’s Gate 3 Tips And Tricks
The following are some useful tips and tricks that you should keep in mind when playing Baldur’s Gate 3:
If you are a role player then there are chances that you will leave some bodies or objects unlooted. We recommend looting everything. You can use the left ALT key to highlight the items and objects that you can interact with within your range.
Note that not all times are going to be highlighted. Items such as restoration points will require you to hover your mouse over them.
There are objects that you can break in the game. If an object has a health bar then you can deal damage to it and break it. If an object has an infinity sign on it then it cannot be broken and you should not waste your time.
Don’t Jump Into A Fight
You can press see and move around the area to see enemies before they see you. All you need to do is stay out of the enemy line of sight. Use a character that has high stealth and set the character in hiding mode to look around. Even if you are detected a dice roll will determine whether you are seen or not.
You can keep party members from following one another. If you want to move a single character then you can click and hold the character portrait and move it to the right until the chain with attached to the other character portrait is broken.
Doing this will allow you to control a single character without having other party members follow him or her around. Use this for character placement and take advantage of the positioning of your different characters based on their abilities.
When you are done placing the different party members then you can push the portraits back together to form the chain once again. This is one of the Baldur’s Gate 3 tips that is going to help you in the long run.
Resting allows you to heal your party and get those spell slots back. You cannot rest during combat or when enemies are too close. So you might need to pull back a bit in order to short rest.

Use The Environment To Your Advantage
You can look around and use the environment to help you in combat. At times you will find objects that explode or ignite. You can also find items above you that can fall down and deal damage to enemies below.
Do Not Forget Bonus Actions
These are very important and can make the difference between a battle lost and a battle won. These are actions that you can do in a single turn as long as you do not forget. Consuming a healing potion is a bonus action. You can move, attack and heal and in a single turn.
Dipping Can Be Very Useful
This is a useful action that can be beneficial in different situations. You can dip to light your arrow on fire. You can even set a torch on fire to provide sight to characters that cannot see in the dark.
