With that being said, here is a list of all the best compositions you can try out for combat & utility in BG3:

Combat-Based Party Combination

  • Lae’zel, Shadowheart, Astarion, Wyll: For this combat-based party, players can fill out the role of Wyll by playing a Warlock or a Sorcerrer with charisma in the campaign.
  • Karlach, Shadowheart, Astarion, Gale: If you are a sorcerer or a wizard potentially doing heavy AoE damage and with intelligence in the game, you can swap out places with Gale. You can also add Lae’zel instead of Karlach as both will play out the role of tank sufficiently and have the best party composition in Baldur’s Gate 3.

Utility-Based Party combination

  • Astarion, Shadowheart, Wyll, Karlach: With the all-magic party combination of Shadowheart & Wyll for AoE damage and a good support tank like Karlach can turn out to be useful in BG3. Astarion with his sleight of hand and trickery will add a stealth role to the party.
  • Astarion, Shadowheart, Wyll, Gale: Another utility class making use of all the magic prowess, but this time without a tank. Players can use this class to enjoy the lore and narrative more in Baldur’s Gate 3.
