Half-Elf is a Race in Baldur's Gate 3Half-Elves feature Fey Ancestry and the ability to see in the dark. While creating your Character in Baldur's Gate 3, you can choose between 11 different types of Races. Each of them has their own special characteristics.

  • BG3 Full Game Note: In the full launch of Baldur's Gate 3, Ability Score Points for Races that were present in Early Access are removed. And instead, Ability Score Points in the full game correspond with the Class players will choose.


 Curious, ambitious, and versatile, half-elves are welcome everywhere, but struggle without a community to call their own.

      Half-elf is the best chcoice for wizard (and less sorcerer). He have profience in light armor, so you can wear it instead of mage armor that give you +1 prepared spell and +1 spell slot per a day.

      Don't forget about +1 cantrip. Sooo good.

        Nice balance. Y have -Fey Ancestry: You have an advantage on saving throws against being Charmed, and magic can't put you to sleep.
        and Darkvision: Can see in the dark up to 12 m. and HALF-ELF SUBRACES
        When human have only -HUMAN VERSATILITY

          This race really needs an overhaul to be more like Pen and Paper, seriously why High Half-elves only have the Wizard Cantrip and nothing else? where is the Elf Weapon Training? or Skill Versatility?, why Drow Half-elves don't have the free uses of Faerie Fire and Darkness (well of the later i understand since there is no 5th level yet, but they should have Faerie Fire at least) and why Wood Half-Elves get both of their subrace traits while the other 2 get only of one?.

            Little heads up, could you show the "basic stats" for each "races" on the wiki, cause a hafl elf wizard only has 8 hp and 9 armor that doesn't scale well and you realize it when it's too late, thx.

              No Skill Versatility? No Skill Monkey for Bards and Rogues?

              High Elves and Wood Elves get Keen Senses and Longbow Proficiency.
