Baldur’s Gate 3 Best Druid Items and Feats

Introduction to Druid’s Wild Shape

Wild shape is a special ability that druids can use to transform into various beasts and gain new abilities and advantages in combat and exploration.

In Baldur’s Gate 3, there are different beasts that druids can choose from, each with their own stats, skills, and actions.

It is very important to remember that:

  • The characteristics of your character change depending on the beast form you choose when you use Wild Shape. For example, if you transform into a bear, you take on the attributes of your beast form for Strength, Dexterity and Constitution, but you will keep your Intelligence, Wisdom, and Charisma scores
  • You will gain new skills and actions, such as Claws and Goading Roar
  • You will lose access to your spells, items, feats and features that require speech, hands, items or weapons
  • Your inventary cannot be changed while in Wild Shape, and it does not affect you (exception made for a brief list of items in this guide)
