Halfling is a Race in Baldur's Gate 3Halflings have a +2 Dexterity Score. While creating your Character in Baldur's Gate 3, you can choose between 11 different types of Races. Each of them has their 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.


 Small yet capable, halflings prefer the comforts of home and hearth - but their natural luck and dexterity makes them fine adventurers.




Halfling Traits:

  • Base Racial Speed
  • Brave: You have advantage on saving throws against being frightened
  • Lucky: When you roll a 1 for an attack roll, ability check, or saving throw, you can reroll the die and must use the new roll.


Halfling Subraces:

Lightfoot Halfling

Strongheart Halfling

  • Strongheart Resilience: You have an advantage on saving throws against Poison and resistance to Poison damage.



Halfling Tips & Notes

  • During Early Access, the Halfling race used to feature +2 Dexterity. This has been changed in the full launch of BG3 and the Ability Score points are now associated with the Class that players will choose.

      Halflings seem to have the most clipping when it comes to skin poking through clothing. Dummy thicc i guess from all the second breakfasts, brunchs, and afternoon teas.

        Halfling Luck is broken, it doesn't work for skill/ability checks and it spams "Dice rolled again!" in combat log repeatedly for every attack, and critical fails happen just as often as before.

          The full game note is wrong, you get to choose where to place a +2 and a +1 to any of the ability scores of your choice, regardless of class. Additionally it keeps the same point buy system previously in the early access.
