Changing classes in Baldur's Gate 3

Of course, we all mess up from time to time. Who hasn’t invested points into the wrong stats or chosen the wrong feat? Fear not, my friend, for Baldur’s Gate 3 offers a fantastic solution to these blunders – Withers and his magical respec services!

How to Unlock Class Change and Respec

Your first step to unlock class change is to recruit Withers to your camp. Seek him out in the Dank Crypt early in the game and follow his little game of Q&A. It’s like a job interview, except he doesn’t really care about your weaknesses or where you see yourself in five years.

Once Withers has joined your merry band, you can easily access his respec services by simply talking to him and selecting the option to change your class. Now, I must inform you that this service doesn’t come cheap. But hey, spending 100 GP to unlock immense power and versatility is a bargain, right? It’s like getting a flat-screen TV at a yard sale, just without having to haggle your way to victory.

When you choose to change your class, you’ll be transported to a menu that resembles the character creation screen from the start of the game. Here, you can browse through the array of fascinating classes and even customize your stat distribution. It’s like rearranging your furniture and suddenly finding that corner that perfectly highlights your impressive Pop Funko collection.

Once you’re satisfied with your choices and have discovered your new calling in life, confirm your new class and you’ll be whisked back to camp. Don’t worry, you won’t lose all those hard-earned experience points. You’ll start at level one, but with all the experience you had previously, ready to level up in your exciting new career path. It’s like keeping your old job while simultaneously pursuing a unicorn-catching business on the side.

And here’s the icing on the cake: you can change the classes of not just your custom characters and Hirelings, but also regular party members like Astarion and Shadowheart. It’s like being a casting director in your own private theater, making sure each actor fits perfectly into their role. Because let’s face it, you’re the director of this epic adventure!

So go forth, my fellow adventurers, and make the most out of your potential. Enjoy the freedom to experiment, blunder, and redefine yourself at Withers’ magical respec emporium. Because in the magical world of Baldur’s Gate 3, even mistakes can lead to greatness!
