Players of Baldur’s Gate 3 Share ‘Dumb Mistakes’ Committed During Combat
RPG games often pose a challenging but ultimately rewarding experience to players. The same is true for the most recent installment of the popular role-playing game series Baldur’s Gate 3. Despite the game’s strategic elements, players have committed some amusingly “dumb mistakes” during combat, according to the game’s forums.
One of the most common mistakes is to cast a spell without realizing its effect. One Redditor shared that they had cast a sleep spell during a boss fight and failed to realize that it did not harm the boss. This caused them to hopelessly struggle against the boss until a group mate was able to revive them.
Another popular mistake is face-tanking with your primary character instead of using tanks. This can cause party members to quickly die out, leaving your main character unprotected. One Reddit user shared that they had used their sorcerer as a tank instead of their cleric, which resulted in their sorcerer being quickly taken out by spells.
Players have also shared stories of forgetting to use buffs, causing their characters to fight weakened. Some players also forget to unequip an armor piece, as this can cause you to deal less damage than usual. Players can also forget to focus on their target, which can lead to a party member taking an extra hit.
But the game is still fun, according to the fans. Despite these mistakes, players can still progress through combat with careful strategizing and the help of companions. This can lead to some genuinely rewarding moments.
