Wood Elf is a Subrace of Elf in Baldur's Gate 3. Wood Elves start out with the ability to blend in with their surroundings. 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 and some of them have Sub-Races which provide different Features and Traits.

  • 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.

Wood elves spend their reclusive lives in Faerun's forests. Decades of training in archery and camouflage are enhanced by an otherworldly swiftness.

Wood Elf Tips & Notes

      So I just got Halsin, and at level 8 he seems to come with Healing Word, Thunderwave, Misty Step and Call Lightning granted through being a wood elf rather than his default druid.

        Anyone else looking at the bonuses to this particular elf and thinking. "Everything about this is good". But it doesn't have a beard option so you opt for the half elf
