We are definitely armed and ready to dive into the world of Baldur's Gate 3. After years of early access, many patches and changes, the release of this long-awaited adventure is upon us. So let’s find out all about a very important feature, how to heal in Baldur’s Gate 3. We don’t want to bleed to death, right?

As with many RPGs, healing is indeed done through several different ways. You could also be helped by other companions, along with being helped by precious items.

So, let us deal with all your wounds and health reducing problems by looking at how to heal in Baldur’s Gate 3 and survive one more fight.

How to heal in Baldur’s Gate 3

In order to heal in Baldur’s Gate 3, you can use a potion or a healing spell. Sounds simple enough, but it is quite different from your average RPG. Healing, as with many other things in the game, is also governed by dice rolls.

But, first, let us see how to use a healing potion and what it does:

  • Using a potion restores health but it also uses a formula.
  • For example “2d4+10 HP” means that the game will roll a four-sided die once you drink the potion.
  • You might get from 12 points of health, up to 18 points and random numbers between those two.
  • Potions can be used freely outside combat, but count as one turn during a fight.

There are not many healing potions in the game, though, so it is definitely better to rely on a spell or a scroll. These can be used by any wizards once they have been collected.

How healing spells work in Baldur’s Gate 3

The first healing spell you will use is probably the one that Shadowheart will learn. This spell is called Cure Wounds and heals 1d8+3 health points. This means that along with three fixed health points, you might get from one to eight random points when you use it.

This might be slightly confusing if you are not familiar with how Dungeons & Dragons work, but you will get the hang of it by using spells.

Shadowheart will also learn Healing Word, this has a longer range than her other spells, but heals slightly less points (1d4 + 3 HP). Spells will level up, along with her, so they will get stronger later.

That is all you need to know on the healing system in Baldur’s Gate 3. But should you need more tips and tricks on improving your playthrough, definitely do check out our best mods guide.
