Eldritch Invocation

From Baldur's Gate 3 Wiki
Jump to navigation Jump to search
In your study of occult lore, you have unearthed eldritch invocations, fragments of forbidden knowledge that imbue you with an abiding magical ability.

Eldritch Invocations are a Warlock class feature first gained at Level 2. Invocations grant a variety of effects, ranging from powerful passive abilities to free uses of utility spells.

Once selected, Eldritch Invocations cannot be changed without resetting the character. Any Warlock can take any unlocked invocation; there are no subclass-specific invocations.
