What is the Best Feat in BG3?

In terms of the buffs and ability scores, the Ability Improvements is the best feat in Baldur’s Gate 3. That’s because it increases one or two of your abilities by 1 to a maximum of 20. So, if you are a Barbarian and your primary ability is strength, using this feat will increase the Rage or/and Danger Sense abilities. However, if you are a spell caster, we recommend the Magic Initiate feat for your classes. These include the Bard, Cleric, Druid, Sorcerer, Warlock, and the Wizard classes. With this feat, you can unlock two Cantrips, cast a level 1 spell, and a spell slot after a long rest.

If you are looking to strengthen your defense, we recommend unlocking the Defensive Duelist feat for your classes. Whenever you are attacked while equipping the Finesse weapons you are proficient with, Defensive duelist causes the attack to miss. The best part? Even if the enemies land an attack on you, it tends to inflict slightly less damage. Alternatively, choosing Shield Master is also a great feat for defense. This feat offers a +2 bonus to Dexterity Saving throws when wielding a Shield.

For the players that don’t rely on Karmic dice, Lucky is an amazing feat in BG3 to start with. With this feat, you gain three Luck points for gaining an advantage on any Saving throws, Attack rolls, and various ability checks. You can gain up to three feats as you progress through levels 4, 8, and 12 respectively. But considering the different classes, many players are confused about the feats for their best builds.
