5 Missing DnD Subclasses That Could Have Ignited Baldur’s Gate 3

Baldur’s Gate 3’s character creation boasts a diverse roster of Classes, but some fans craved the spice of their favourite DnD Subclasses. Here are 5 Subclasses that could have taken BG3 to the next level:

5 Missing DnD Subclasses That Could Have Ignited Baldur’s Gate 3

Rogue: Soulknife

Forget mundane blades, Soulknives wield psychic daggers manifested from their minds. This blend of stealth and psionics opens up exciting combat and roleplay opportunities. Imagine hurling psychic blades from the shadows, or subtly manipulating minds with telepathic whispers.

Cleric: Twilight Domain

Twilight Clerics, with their twilight-themed spells and focus on guardianship, would have seamlessly woven into BG3’s narrative. Imagine the unique dialogue options with characters like Isobel and Dame Aylin, and the strategic possibilities of channeling twilight power to protect your companions.

Druid: Circle of Stars

These cosmic druids draw upon the power of starlight, offering a refreshing take on the classic class. Their Starry Form, a luminous celestial transformation, would be a spectacle to behold in BG3’s combat, while their starry guidance abilities could add a unique layer of tactical depth.

Monk: Way of the Kensei

For the monk who craves both martial prowess and finesse, the Way of the Kensei beckons. These monks specialize in honed weapons, turning them into extensions of their ki. Imagine unleashing devastating attacks with your perfected blade, deflecting arrows with your staff, and even imbuing your weapons with ki to bypass resistances.

Wizard: Bladesinger

Bladesingers combine magic and bladework with their graceful Bladesong, absorbing elemental damage for extra survivability. This versatile subclass would be a dream for solo adventurers, allowing you to switch seamlessly between arcane blasts and elegant swordsmanship.

These are just a few of the Subclasses that could have enriched the Baldur’s Gate 3 experience. Their unique abilities and thematic depth would have added another layer of customization and strategic complexity to the game, catering to a wider range of player preferences. So, while we may not see them in BG3 just yet, let’s hope Larian Studios considers adding them in future updates or expansions to keep the adventure ever-evolving!
