Baldur's Gate 3, like many PC games, supports fan-made mods that add new features to enhance the gaming experience. Whether it's character customization or gameplay improvements, mods offer players endless possibilities. Here are some of the top mods that I recommend for your next playthrough.
1. Tav's Hair Salon
Tav's Hair Salon introduces a wide variety of new hairstyles to the character creation menu, with a focus on Elves, Half-Elves, Humans, Tieflings, and Drows. These hairstyles are fully compatible with the game and even include options for color and highlights. If you feel that the base game's hairstyles are lacking, this mod is a great solution.
2. Fast XP
Fast XP allows players to earn experience at a much faster rate, effectively reducing the grind in Act One. While this increased experience gain only applies until level six, the mod also offers an option to halve experience requirements for every level. This means you can level up at double the speed, making your party feel more powerful.
3. Party Limit Begone
Party Limit Begone enables you to expand the size of your party to 16 members. Additionally, if you enjoy playing with friends, this mod allows for co-op between up to eight players. Being able to have all the Companion characters join you on your adventures is a great way to make combat easier.
4. Basket Full of Equipment
Basket Full of Equipment adds a wide range of new equipment items for every armor slot in the game. Some items even come with custom-made spells and enchantments, making them unique. The mod's stat scaling feature ensures that each item gets stronger as you level up, so you don't have to abandon your favorite outfit for better armor.
5. 5e Spells
5e Spells brings back many fan-favorite spells and cantrips from the fifth edition of Dungeons & Dragons that were not included in Baldur's Gate 3. While the mod currently only adds up to fourth-level spells, more are expected to be added in the future.
6. Improved UI
Improved UI enhances the user interface, making it more user-friendly. It also allows you to customize the appearance of any Origin character during character creation. This mod works well with other mods, providing greater access to character creation options and other features.
7. Customizer's Compendium
Customizer's Compendium is the ultimate character customization mod for Baldur's Gate 3. It unlocks options that were previously restricted to NPCs, allowing for a wide range of new looks. The mod is easy to install and highly compatible with other mods.
These mods offer exciting enhancements to the already immersive world of Baldur's Gate 3. Give them a try and elevate your gaming experience to new heights.
