Baldur’s Gate 3: Best classes for beginners

Baldur’s Gate 3 is no doubt a deep and intricate RPG. There are 12 classes to choose from which in itself is a rather sizable number when you compare it with other RPGs, and there are 46 subclasses on top of that.

Naturally, this may be confusing to players who are new to the series and CRPGs in general. So, here are four of the best classes for beginners. 


The Fighter class can deal a lot of damage and has high survivability. Fighters are capable of dealing damage at both melee damage as well as a bit of ranged damage. Abilities like Second Wind help them replenish HP, and Action Surge gives the player an extra turn.

Things like these make the Fighter a rather forgiving class and hence great for beginners in Baldur’s Gate 3


Warlocks are one of the five magic users in Baldur’s Gate 3, and perhaps the best ones for beginners. The other magic-based classes, like Sorcerers and Wizards, are complicated to use.

Though Warlocks have a limited arsenal, their abilities are useful. For example, Hex can debuff enemies, making it easier for players to finish them off.

Paladins are similar to the Fighters, as they also have great survivability and can dish out good damage. The only difference is that Paladins have access to a few spells.

They also make for great healers. Abilities like Healing Radiance and Oath of Ancients can heal your entire party, which will tremendously aid players in tough battles in Baldur’s Gate 3


Rangers have a versatile arsenal of attacks, including melee attacks, ranged attacks, magic attacks, and even summon beasts, allowing the player to mix things up for different outcomes.

For example, familiars can be summoned to debuff or distract foes letting the player finish them off with the good ‘ol bow and arrow. Rangers can be complex while still being easy to understand, making them a very good beginner class in Baldur’s Gate 3
