Best Party Composition in Baldur's Gate 3 (BG3)

You might want to know about the best Party Composition to roll with in Baldur’s Gate 3.

If you are amongst the dedicated ones in CRPGs like Baldur’s Gate 3, you are definitely aware of the solemn importance of your party composition. The game’s sole outcome is based on the roles and personalities that players take on. With that saying, a well-rounded group can orchestrate the diverse talents needed to conquer complicated challenges like Mozart’s 40th Symphony.  

However, finding the perfect people to invite to a party can feel like trying to find your way out of a maze made of glass. The story is woven from D&D’s preferences, which state the players’ quirks and the party’s potential dangers. And that is why a varied group of people is always more effective than one that isn’t.

As we were talking about writing a symphony, note that a group size of four is just right. This number seems just right. That can eventually avoid the tedious disorder of a smaller, unmanageable gathering. 

Moreover, the party’s character roles can be uncovered by digging deeper into each of their motivations. These abilities are like the last pieces of a puzzle; works just fine without them but are necessary to finish the job. Amidst these thought-provoking situations, I tried to gather some of the best compositions you can find on the market. Without further ado, let’s jump right into it!

Best Party Composition in BG3

The Classic: Simple and Straightforward

Best Classic Party Composition in BG3
The classic build
  • Fighter
  • Ranger
  • Cleric
  • Druid

The most classic composition to this date is possessed by members who are formidable in every respect and ready to face and take down any threat—most of the threats. The Fighter takes responsibility for keeping everyone alive, with the Ranger on damage support, the Cleric on healing, and the Druid on buff duty.

A Tank stands on the frontline to take hits for the team so the rest don’t have to. They have high HP and AC. They can act as human shields for their allies. With that in mind and focusing on being Aglie, a Fighter like Lae’zel or Galek would do the job pretty well if the respec done correctly.

With a damage dealer on damage-dealing duty, a Ranger should sum up and clear the mess. Apart from tremendous damage output and attack modifiers, this class also has abilities that place them on the high ground

Now comes the healing part. Clerics are the best behind the scenes. From this class, we can count on either Shadowheart or Larian. You can use their spells and abilities to mend injuries and illnesses. Moreover, the dead can be revived as well. Great addition.

The buffing duty is on the Druids. The best I can suggest is either Minthara or Wyll. Well, I went for Minthara after some unquestionable acts. Leave it be. Our main focus is to pump out their skills and magic to apply and remove buffs and debuffs to their other mates. Tasks get way easier when this guy hangs around.

ProsCons
VersatilityLimited Damage Variety
Synergystic CombinationResource Management

The Chaotic Evil: Damage Dealer and Bringer of Chaos

Best Evil Party Composition in BG3
chaotic evil build
  • Warlock
  • Ranger
  • Cleric
  • Druid

The Warlock, Rogue, Cleric, and Druid are key members when you focus on rampaging rather than invading. The Warlock is adept at manipulation and stealth, whereas the Rogue is stealthy by born and secretive in every aspect. The Cleric adds persuasion and intimidation, while the Druid is always based on magic and manipulation.  

Starting with the Warlock as Tank. I suggest taking on this role for yourself. You will also be in charge of spell casting, especially dark magic. From casting devastating spells to being the master of manipulation and deception, Warlock definitely can bring chaos by being an invaluable ally in any nefarious plot.

A Rogue’s job in this composition will be the team’s silent killer, along with Damage support. They can stealthily eliminate enemies as they are adept at sneaking and tricking. And who can be better than Astarion in this case? Apart from Astarion, Rogue class has a specialty in picking locks and disarming traps—another valuable asset to create havoc.

Next comes the Cleric. Its primary role on the squad is to provide morale boosts and healing to the rest of the mates. You can utilize their spells not only for healing but also to boost the team’s overall strength. Moreover, taunting people is another addition, apart from gaslighting. 

However, the Druid has more experience using magic than anyone else in the group. They have the magical ability to control the elements, summon creatures, and even take on animal forms—talking about commanding nature itself. The best I can name is Karlach. He also has remarkable abilities for tracking and survival, once you respec him. That, in terms, makes him the most essential mate to watch the back.

ProsCons
Stealth and SubterfugeLimited Frontline Presence
Deception and ManipulationLack of Traditional Healer

The Lawful Good: Guardian of Harmony

Best Party Composition in BG3
lawful good build
  • Fighter
  • Paladin
  • Ranger
  • Cleric

Paladin, a holy warrior, is also a lawful warrior, while Fighter is solid and durable to be side by side. A Cleric will be the sacred spellcaster and healer, while Rangers are skilled scouts and trackers. This build is lawful neutral and believes in order and justice. However, not necessarily motivated by morality.

From the first, we will be using a Fighter as our Tank. The holy warrior always operates in accordance with the highest moral standards. With the right abilities, they are highly respected. Moreover, their HP and AC are top-notch, allowing them to defend themselves and their companions by being a shield. 

Next, our damage supporter will be Paladins. They can combat effectively with any type of armor and weapon. Furthermore, they can cast various spells, including healing, buffing, and smiting. And last but not least, they have the highest moral values among the other mates in this build.

We will keep a Ranger on the damage-support team. This skilled scout and tracker can also move silently and excel at dealing with ranged damage. This holy scout can use their expertise to aid the team in overcoming obstacles.

Now, the Cleric is the religious spellcaster, and another healer uses their abilities to aid and heal the other mates. Skilled at using magic to boost their powers, Cleric were always all-rounders. Lawful good can be a common alignment among Clerics.

ProsCons
Durable FrontlinePotential Struggle with Morally Ambiguous Situations
Scouting and TrackingPotential Predictability
