Concentration is a spell mechnisms in Baldur's Gate 3. Some Spells require you to maintain Concentration in order to keep their magic active. If you lose Concentration, such a spell ends. See spells for more information.


Concentration Information

If a spell must be maintained with Concentration, that fact appears in its Duration entry, and the spell specifies how long you can concentrate on it. You can end Concentration at any time (no action required).

  • Normal activity, such as moving and attacking, doesn’t interfere with Concentration. The following factors can break concentration:
  • Casting another spell that requires Concentration. You lose Concentration on a spell if you cast another spell that requires Concentration. You can’t concentrate on two Spells at once.
  • Taking damage. Whenever you take damage while you are concentrating on a spell, you must make a Constitution saving throw to maintain your Concentration. The DC equals 10 or half the damage you take, whichever number is higher. If you take damage from multiple sources, such as an arrow and a dragon’s breath, you make a separate saving throw for each source of damage.
  • Being Incapacitated or killed. You lose Concentration on a spell if you are Incapacitated or if you die.

        I hope Larian adds the War caster feat soon. It's pretty rough as a caster without it. Even with higher constitution for concentration checks. Especially with a lot of enemies early on with multi attack.
