Fighting style

From Baldur's Gate 3 Wiki
Jump to navigation Jump to search

Fighting Styles are available to certain (sub)classes as a feature, increasing their combat efficacy with certain equipment.

  • Once learned, Fighting Styles are permanently active; you cannot "disable" a Fighting Style.
    • Respeccing at Withers will still remove the feature.
    • Protection is the only Fighting Style which allows you to choose whether or not it is applied, as a Reaction.
  • Each fighting style can only be chosen once.
    • You can learn multiple types, and they will all apply as applicable; a character dual-wielding Hand Crossbows with Archery and Two-Weapon Fighting will gain +2 to attack rolls with both weapons, and add its Ability Score Modifier to the offhand one.
