Create Sorcery Points BG3 Guide
Create Sorcery Points is a Sorcerer-specific Bonus Action that allows them to gain Sorcery Points by using up a Spell Slot. Sorcery Points are a resource that are mainly used to power another Sorcerer-specific feature called Metamagic. These Metamagics alter the properties of your Spells to benefit you and your allies, or to simply bolster the effects of the spell you cast. Metamagics include Twinned Spell, allowing you to duplicate a single-target spell, Quickened Spell, allowing you to cast a Spell that would usually require an Action with a Bonus Action, and Distant Spell, allowing you to double the range of your spell.
Besides Metamagic, Sorcery Points can also be used to regain used Spell Slots through the Bonus Action Create Spell Slot. Through this action, you can spend 2 Sorcery Points to regain a Level 1 Spell Slot. In regular DnD, this cost increases the higher the Level of the spell slot regained, but by how much may be different in the full release of Baldur's Gate 3.
It is not advised to try and recycle or generate Sorcery Points and Spell Slots by performing Create Sorcery Points and Create Spell Slot in succession, as the cost to make Spell slots is greater than the amount of Sorcery Points you get by sacrificing one. Generating a Level 1 Spell Slot through Create Spell Slot costs 2 Sorcery Points, while sacrificing a Level 1 Spell Slot through Create Sorcery Points nets you 1 Sorcery Point. The best time to use Create Sorcery Points is if you see a prime moment to use one of your Metamagics in an enemy encounter, and have some extra spell slots to spare to generate the Sorcery Points required to cast it.
