Baldur’s Gate 3 is still in the early access but mod community already started releasing most amazing class mods. So, today I will share my best Baldur’s Gate 3 class mods list with you guys.
Baldur’s Gate 3 classes are very few in the early access era. However, many classes from dnd imported to Baldur’s gate 3 via mods, addons, and etc. These classes on my list, were already in the games codes. But they were incomplete, therefore not released. So, modders decided to bring them out, polish to make them playable, and release for us to play. What can I say? We owe them a big thank you.
Okay, if you are ready, let’s start our Baldur’s Gate 3 class mods list with the monk.
1. Monk Class
Baldur’s Gate 3 monk class mod is one of the first class mods ever made for BG3. It has 5 subclasses and +20 spells which makes your playthrough excessively fun. So I say if you want mobility, versality, and lots of damage this class would be the right choice for you. Monk tag dialogues are also implemented and fully working. Therefore making it possible to role play as monk in the early access.
Monks eschew training with weapons and armour and instead hone themselves, body and mind, into inscrutable instruments of battle.
It’s most important class feature is martial arts mastery. The monks mastery of martial arts allows them to deal extra damage while unarmed and to use dexterity instead of strength for their attack and damage rolls, whichever is greater. Additionally monks may make a single unarmed attack as a bonus action each round.
Other monk class features: Simple weapon proficiency, short sword proficiency, strength saving throw, dexterity saving throw, and unarmored defense.
Way of the Four Elements
These monks bend the four elements at will, becoming avatars of balance. Way of the four elements can choose one subclass passive to wield an elemental spell.
- Fangs of the fire snake: Channel Ki to cause three tendrils of flame to stretch out from your fists and strike an enemy.
- Fist of four thunders: Channel Ki to cast thunder wave.
- Fist of unbroken air: Channel Ki to create a blast of compressed air that strikes like a mighty fist.
- Rush of the gale spirits: Channel Ki to cast gust of wind.
- Sweeping cinder strike: Channel ki to cast burning hands.
- Water whip: Strike with a whip of water that pulls a creature towards you and unbalances it.
Way of the Long Death
Monks of the way of the long death are obsessed with the meaning and mechanics of dying. It’s subclass feature is touch of death.
Touch of death: When you reduce a creature to zero hit points with a melee attack, you extract some of their vitality and gain temporary hit point equal to wisdom modifier and level.
Way of the Open Hand
Monks of the way of the open hand are the ultimate masters of martial arts combat, whether armed or unarmed. It’s subclass features are 3 new melee attack spells.
- Flurry of knockdown blows: Channel Ki to unleash two lightning fast unarmed attack. A hit may knock down the target.
- Flurry of knockback blows: Channel Ki to unleash two lightning fast melee attack. A hit may knock back the target.
- Flurry of distract blows: Channel Ki and unleash two unarmed attack. A hit will distract the target, preventing it from reactions.
Way of the Shadow
These monks might be called ninjas or shadow dancers, and they serve as spies and assassins. As a result, this subclass unlocks minor illusion, darkness, silence, darkvision, and pass without trace spells.
Way of the Sun Soul
Monks of the way of the sun soul learn to channel their own life energy into searing bolts of light. Unlocks radiant sun bolt and radiant sun bolt flurry spells.
2. Paladin Class
Update: There is an another Paladin class mod called Devoted Paladin. It is specifically created for patch 5. Since both paladin class mods are equally good, I will let you to decide which one to download.
Paladin class will start with plate armor, steel shield, and a strong mace when they wake up on the ship. Playable paladin class is the most popular class mod in Baldur’s Gate 3 nexus. One can say the paladins are everyone’s favorite. Once you level up as paladin you can choose between oath of the ancients and oath of the vengeance subclasses. Overall, you must gave this mod a chance and make a playthrough as a paladin class. Because there will be many occasions to use your special paladin tag in your journey.
Whether sworn before a god’s altar and the witness of priest, in a sacred glade before nature spirits and fey beings, or in a moment of desperation and grief with the dead as the only witness, a paladin’s oath is a powerful bond.
Paladin class is a mod, but early access already has special paladin tag dialogues inside the game codes. So, playing with this paladin mod, you can really enjoy the paladin class as it was already implemented to the game by developers. Paladin also has simple weapon, martial weapon, heavy armour, light armour, medium armour, shield, charisma, and wisdom proficiencies.
Oath of the Ancients
The oath of ancients is as old as the race of elves and the rituals of the druids. Sometimes called fey knights, green knights, or horned knights. Paladins who swear this oath cast their lot with the side of the light in the cosmic struggle against darkness because they love the beautiful and life giving things of the world, not necessarily because they believe in principles of honor, courage, and justice. They adorn their armor and clothing with images of growing things leaves, antlers, or flowers to reflect their commitment to preserving life and light in the world. As a subclass feature, it unlocks nature’s wrath, turn the faithless, ensnaring strike, and speak with animals spells.
Oath of Vengeance
The oath of vengeance is a solemn commitment to punish those who have committed a grievous sin. When evil forces slaughter helpless villagers, when an entire people turns against the will of the gods, when a thieves guild grows too violent and powerful, when a dragon rampages through the countryside at times like these, paladins arise and swear an oath of vengeance to set right that which has gone wrong. To these paladins sometimes called avengers or dark knights their own purity is not as important as delivering justice. Abjure enemy, vow of enmity, bane, and hunter’s mark spells are subclass features.
3. Bard Class
Update: You don’t need a mod to play bard class anymore. Latest BG3 update introduced bard class to the game. Here is my Baldur’s Gate 3 best bard build in case you are interested.
Bard class may not be the strongest but undoubtedly the most fun class of all. As a bard, you can not deal too much damage but you can inspire your allies and demoralize your foes. Your bard tag, deception, performance, and persuasion proficiencies makes this playthrough very enjoyable.
Whether scholar, skald, or scoundrel, a bard weaves magic through words and music to inspire allies, demoralize foes, manipulate minds, create illusions, and even heal wounds. The bard is a master of song, speech, and the magic they contain.
Bard characters will gain bardic inspiration bonus action. Bardic inspiration allows you to inspire others through stirring words or music. That creature gains a d6 bonus to ability, attack, and skill rolls for 3 rounds.
College of Valor
Bards of the college of valor are daring skalds whose tales keep alive the memory of the great heroes of the past, and thereby inspire a new generation of heroes. These bards gather in mead halls or around great bonfires to sing the deeds of the mighty, both past and present. They travel the land to witness great events firsthand and ensure that the memory of those events doesn’t pass from the world. With their songs, they inspire others to reach the same heights of accomplishment as the heroes of old. College of valor have combat inspiration which boosts your bardic inspiration. Bardic inspiration now also add their proficiency bonus to damage rolls and armor class.
College of Lore
Bards of the college of lore knows something about most things, collecting bits of knowledge from sources as diverse as scholarly tomes and peasant tales. Whether singing folk ballads in taverns or elaborate compositions in royal courts, these bards use their gifts to hold audiences spellbound. When the applause dies down, the audience members might find themselves questioning everything they held to be true, from their faith in the priesthood of the local temple to their loyalty to the king. Bards from college of lore gains cutting words spell. With cutting words skill, you can cause your targets to doubt themselves through verbal assault. That creature gains a -1d6 penalty to all rolls for 1 round. Uses your reaction for this turn.
College of Glamour
The college of glamour is the home of bards who mastered their craft in the vibrant realm of the feywild or under the tutelage of someone who dwelled there. Tutored by satyrs, eladrin, and other fey, these bards learn to use their magic to delight and captivate others. College of glamour spells:
- Mantle of inspiration: Weave a song of fey magic and grant yourself a wonderous appearance that imbues your allies with vigor and speed. When you do so, each ally who can see you gains 5 temporary hit point and for one round gets double movement speed and immunity to attacks of opportunity.
- Enthralling show: You could probably charm an entire small town with one magical performance of bardic music. Everyone will be talking about you for days to come.
4. Druid Class
Update: Druid class is officially implemented to Baldur’s Gate 3 early access. So, this class mod is now pointless and not necessary. Now obviously if your game is up to date, you can skip this and go for the next class mod.
Are you a nature lover? Do you wish to befriend animals and shapeshift into one yourself? Then you should definitely try druid class mod Baldur’s Gate 3. You will have many nature and beast oriented spells. Plus there will be many special druid tag dialogue. This should be fun when you wander around druid groove.
Whether calling on the elemental forces of nature or emulating the creatures of animal world, druids are an embodiment of natures resilience, cunning, and fury. They claim no mastery over nature, but see themselves as extensions of natures indomitable will.
Druid characters can start with two cantrips called shillelagh and thorn whip. With shillelagh spell the wood of a club or quarterstaff you are holding is imbued with nature’s power, receiving shillelagh for 1 minute. The spell ends if you cast it again. And with the thorn whip, you create a long vine like whip covered in thorns that lashes out at your command toward a creature in range. Make a melee spell attack against the target. If the attack hits, the creature takes 1d6 piercing damage, and if the creature is large or smaller, you pull the creature up to 3m closer to you.
Druid and herbalist armor mods are highly recommended for your druid class playthrough.
Circle of the Land
The circle of the land is made up of mystics and sages who safeguard ancient knowledge and rites through a vast oral tradition. These druids meet within sacred circles of trees or standing stones to whisper primal secrets in druidic. Arcane recovery spell is the feature for this subclass.
Circle of the Moon
Changeable as the moon, a druid of the circle might prowl as a great cat one night, soar over the treetops as an eagle the next day, and crash through the undergrowth in bear form to drive off a trespassing monster. The wild is in the druids blood. Circle of the moon druid can shapeshift into a bear, giant spider, dire wolf, rat, boar, and a wolf. Plus they can use wild shape healing spell.
5. Barbarian Class
Barbarian is the 5th in our best Baldur’s Gate 3 class mods list. Now forget about weird spells, forget about ranged weapons, and cowardly play. It is time to unleash your rage and wreak havoc on your foes with the ancient ways of blood and steel. Your strongest weapon is nothing but your rage.
For some, their rage springs from a communion with fierce animal spirits. Others draw from a roiling reservoir of anger at a world full of pain. For every barbarian, rage is a power that fuels not just a battle frenzy but also uncanny reflexes, resilience, and feats of strength.
As a berserker you start with rage action, by spending a one bonus action you gain rage for 1 minute which gives you hit point and damage bonus. Other proficiencies are unarmored defense, strength saving throw, constitution saving throw, shield, and martial weapon proficiencies.
For some barbarians, rage is means to an end that end being violence. The path of the berserk is a path of untrammeled fury, slick with blood. As you enter the berserkers rage, you thrill in the chaos of battle, heedless of your own health or well being. Subclass feature is a spell called frenzied strike which allows berserker character to make a melee weapon attack as a bonus action.
The path of the totem warrior is a spiritual journey, as the barbarian accepts a spirit animal as guide, protector, and inspiration. In battle, your totem spirit fills you with supernatural might, adding magical fuel to your barbarian rage. Totem warrior will have to choose a totem spirit as a class passive.
- Bear spirit totem: You have resistance to all damage except psychic damage.
- Eagle spirit totem: Other creatures have disadvantage on opportunity attack rolls against you. You can use the dash action as a bonus action on your turn.
- Elk spirit totem: Your walking speed increases by 15 feet.
- Tiger spirit totem: Your long jump distance is increased by 15ft.
- Wolf spirit totem: Your friends have advantage on melee attack rolls against any creature within 5ft of you that is hostile to you.
6. Sorcerer Class
Sorcerer class is recommended if you like to use magic a lot. This mod basically brings sorcerer class, it’s sub classes and tons of spells to your game. We can surely say that this one is the most in depth class mod in Baldur’s Gate 3. You can get this mod from it’s nexus page.
Sorcerers carry a magical birhtright conferred upon them by an exotic bloodline, some otherworldly influence, or exposure to unknown cosmic forces.
This class comes with 7 subclasses which is plenty. Each subclass have different features, spells, and actions. Here is the sorcerer subclasses:
Your innate magic comes from draconic magic that was mingled with your blood or that of your ancestors. Most often, sorcerers with this origin trace their descent back to a might sorcerer of ancient times who made a bargain with a dragon or who might even have claimed a dragon parent.
Your innate magic comes from the wild forces of chaos that underlie the order of creation. You might have endured exposure to some form of a raw magic, perhaps through a planar portal leading to Limbo, the elemental planes, or the mysterious far realm.
An alien influence has wrapped its tendrils around your mind, giving you psionic power. You can now touch other minds with that power and alter the world around you by using it to control the magical energy of the multiverse.
A plane of utmost order, Mechanus is a realm overseen by a godlike entity called Primus, whose actions are inscrutable and calculations, vast. You, or someone from your lineage, might have become entangled in one of the machinations of the leader of the modrons.
Sometimes the spark of magic that fuels a sorcerer comes from a divine source that glimmers within the soul. Having such a blessed soul is a sign that your innate magic might come from a distant but powerful familial connection to a divine being.
You are a creature of shadow, for your innate magic comes from the Shadowfell itself. You might trace your lineage to an entity from that place, or perhaps you were exposed to its fell energy and transformed by it.
Your innate magic comes from the power of elemental air. Many with this power can trace their magic back to a near-death experience caused by the great rain, but perhaps you were born during a howling gale so powerful that folk still tell stories of it, or your lineage might include the influence of potent air creatures such as vaati or djinn.
