Baldur’s Gate 3 Has Amazing Feature for When You Respec Characters

A Baldur’s Gate 3 player realizes that Larian Studios’ hit RPG has an amazing feature that’s only accessible by respeccing characters.

Highlights

  • Baldur’s Gate 3 has unique voice lines that can only be heard when respeccing characters, showcasing the attention to detail by Larian.
  • Each of the game’s 10 companions is fully voiced, with dialogue, combat remarks, and exploration lines.
  • Respeccing companions in Baldur’s Gate 3 can reveal a wider pool of gameplay remarks, as discovered by a Twitter user, demonstrating Larian’s thoroughness in considering different character combinations.

One Baldur’s Gate 3 player found that the game contains unique voice lines that can only be heard by respeccing characters. Their discovery is yet another example of the great attention to detail that Larian put into Baldur’s Gate 3.

Warning! Minor early game spoilers for Baldur’s Gate 3 ahead.Every one of Baldur’s Gate 3‘s 10 companions is fully voiced, with Larian recording not just countless lines of dialogue but also many combat and exploration remarks for each character. Some of those comments can also be heard from a custom protagonist, with the exact contents of their statements depending on their class.

However, it turns out that Baldur’s Gate 3 companions have a much wider pool of gameplay remarks than first thought, as recently discovered by Twitter user understatesmen. More specifically, this fan found that using the Baldur’s Gate 3 respec feature to turn Karlach into a Monk changes some of her combat shouts, noting that there’s no doubt the revised pool of lines was still performed by the same voice actress, Samantha Beart. In light of that discovery, the player concluded that Larian “really thought of everything.”

The peculiar feature that presumably extends to other combinations of classes and companions is likely to be missed by many a fan, not least because respeccing is far from a requirement for completing Baldur’s Gate 3. Even the players who do end up respeccing their characters will often do so in order to switch up their leveling choices instead of trying out entirely different classes. After all, the default companion classes in Baldur’s Gate 3 are already well-suited for beating the game on any difficulty level, so players who aren’t Dungeons and Dragons veterans or prone to some serious tinkering won’t necessarily feel the need to experiment with features like multi-classing and in-depth character respeccing.

Anyone looking to respec their Baldur’s Gate 3 companions in order to hear their alternative voice lines or for any other reason will first want to make sure to recruit Withers during Act 1. While this mysterious figure is fairly difficult to miss, it’s entirely possible to beat the game without ever visiting the Dank Crypt where he can be found.

After meeting with him, Withers will start showing up at the camp, offering a wide variety of services to the party. Among other things, this undead necromancer will allow the player to respec any of their characters for a symbolic sum of just 100 gold pieces, thus providing endless opportunities to experiment with various builds.

Baldur’s Gate 3 is available now on PC and launches September 6 on PS5, with an Xbox Series X/S port also in development.
