Attack Roll in Baldur's Gate 3

Attack Rolls occur when a character is attacking another character. The attacking character rolls the D20 and if the roll is equal or higher than the target's Armour Class (AC), then that attack hits the target with the equipped weapon.

Attack Roll Modifiers

Melee weapons use the Strength ability modifier, while Ranged Weapons use the Dexterity ability modifier. There are some exceptions, such as melee weapons that have the finesse property. These melee weapons use Dexterity instead of Strength.

Attack Rolls are also affected by your Proficincy with the weapon you are currently using.

Calculating Damage

If you successfully connect the attack, your Ability Modifier is then added to your damage roll. Damage rolls are calculated by rolling the die or dice of the weapon used and then adding the ability modifier. This means that you are not only more likely to hit with the weapon if you have high Strength or Dexterity, but you will do more damage if you do.
