Baldur’s Gate 3 – Best Classes (Tier List)

Tier List

  • S Tier Tanks: Paladins and druids
  • A Tier Tanks: Barbarians (Bear Totem only) and Cleric (depending on the domain)
  • B Tier Tanks: Bards (college of valour) and warriors
  • S Tier DPS: Rogue, wizard/warlock/sorcerer
  • A Tier DPS: Barbarian (berserkers only), bard, ranger, moon druids, th paladins
  • B Tier DPS: Cleric (Spirit Guardians only)
  • S Tier Support/Heal: Cleric, Bard
  • A Tier: Druid
  • S Tier Crowd Control: Bard, and other casters depending if you specialize them in that
  • A Tier: Cleric, Druid (not moon circle)
  • S Tier Skill Master: Bard bard bard bard bard
  • A Tier: Rogues for traps and chests

That’s why my favorite classes are bard and cleric: They appear on every tier (with the exception of skill for cleric, but he is there to provide the good guidance spell) in every possible role.

But I also like ranger (though he tends to shine more on tabletop, where you have to track creatures and stuff) and druid.

But of course, that depends on the way you want to play.

Being a big gaming fan, I believe that I have a lot to share with other gamers. I got my first official job in the game industry in 2005 and continue to develop there. It's a true blessing when your passion, hobby, and job combine into something one. My favorite console is the Nintendo Switch. I think you can all guess why. Because I just bought a Steam Deck. I love playing on PC, but my main love for me will always be Xbox. Anyway, it's complicated and simple at the same time. After all, I'm back in the days of the ZX Spectrum (1994)…

  1. The Tier list takes into considerations, the front loaded systems and mechanics of the game, potential itemization, overall performance with and without rests, maximum potential in combat and/or party utility, options and potential scalability.

    It also takes into consideration party compositions, dialogue, skills, and various items that allow certain classes to scale in more extreme ways.

    This is a pure class list, and is nothing to do with multiclassing.

    The Wizard and Druid, ARE the weakest classes. Why?
    To put it simply, this game does NOT benefit from your class being versatile, some classes simply get strong or incredibly good itemization compared to others.
    Some classes benefit from the level cap more than others and some classes are provide provide more options across the board than other utility, control, conversationally, and skill wise.
    Wizard being an intel class is a huge problem alone. And druid has issues with the scuffed low AC shapeshifting limitations on those, and being locked out of stuff whilst shifted. it has unscaleable damage in its shifts. Beyond that its casting ability and spell lists are not great its hard to improve with the lack of proper druid specific items in game and just a few that stand out. Basically this class requires a lot of work to even make functionally decent and even then its not comparable to most other classes.

    Some of the games front loaded mechanics and systems like potions, scrolls, barrels, boxes, height, base potential, access to mobility etc benefit some classes more than others.

    Paladins are able to provide the highest single target damage in game outside of multiclassing.
    Bard provide incredible utility, control and dialogue options as well as buffs that are simply better than anything else, they are also able to be better skill monkeys than any other class.
