Once you spin up a brand new game of Baldur’s Gate 3, it instantly asks you to decide on between three difficulty choices: Explorer, Balanced, and Tactician. The one description for the best mode, Explorer, is that it is “a story expertise inserting story earlier than fight.” It seems that selecting Explorer would not simply make fight in Baldur’s Gate 3 simpler—it additionally locks away multiclassing, which is a probably complicated leveling choice for first-time D&D gamers.

Two hours earlier than Baldur’s Gate 3 even launched on Thursday, a modder had unlocked that limitation, making multiclassing out there no matter difficulty.

Multiclass Unlocker (Full Launch Model) is the primary BG3 mod to pop up on Nexusmods, and would not have—or want—a really detailed description:

“Unlocks the multiclassing characteristic for all difficulties. Works for each new campaigns, and mid-playthrough (nevertheless will not apply till subsequent level-up). By default, multiclassing is disabled for the bottom difficulty mode in Baldur’s Gate 3. This mod re-enables it.”

The mod can both be put in with a Baldur’s Gate 3 mod supervisor software out there through Github, which can deal with a little bit of configuration be just right for you. Should you want the handbook methodology, you may unzip the mod into the Baldur’s Gate 3 mod listing that may mechanically be created if you set up the game. By default, here is where it lives:

As soon as the mod is unzipped there, there’s that little little bit of configuration work to do: you may want to repeat the contents of the included data.json file right into a Baldur’s Gate 3 file known as modsettings.lsx positioned right here by default:

After that you simply’re free to multiclass, even on Explorer difficulty. We have been a bit stunned to see the choice disabled on Baldur’s Gate 3’s straightforward mode, particularly since its description of inserting story earlier than fight” would not actually point out that vital gameplay options could possibly be locked away. Should you take a look at our Baldur’s Gate 3 multiclassing guide, nevertheless, Larian’s reasoning right here may begin to make sense.

Not like many RPGs where you attain stage 40 or 60 and even 100 over the course of a narrative, Baldur’s Gate 3 has a a lot decrease stage cap of 12. Leveling up in D&D is a large deal, and reaching stage 11 or 12 can grant you entry to some severely highly effective talents. Should you select to multiclass, you are giving up the potential for some actual late-game oomph; it is a a lot weightier resolution than, say, throwing just a few further factors into Dexterity in Darkish Souls. 

As highlighted in our guide, some multiclass mixtures are nicely price splitting your ranges between, however others could get you into bother. I can think about some poor D&D beginner taking some extent in every class and questioning why their jack-of-all-trades cannot even beat a goblin in a thumb wrestling match. So in case you do set up this mod to play on Explorer difficulty, method your multiclassing rigorously.
