Best cleric multiclass builds

The best multiclass builds for clerics involve paladin, bard, and sorcerer. They all have vastly different playstyles, so let’s take a look at them in more detail.

Paladin Cleric

This build allows you to charge into a fight and be an aggressive tank while providing buffs and healing to your party. If you like to stay close to the action and making sure all of your companions survive each encounter, this might be the build for you.

When building a paladin/cleric multiclass, players tend to put nine levels into cleric and three into paladin. The War Domain cleric subclass works well with this build, since it has the ability to attack more frequently in one turn.

Bard Cleric

Bards and clerics are the go-to support classes in Baldur’s Gate 3. If you’re having trouble choosing between the two, consider getting the best of both worlds with this multiclass build.

Bards get a lot of value from their kit, so you’re going to want to put 10 levels into it with only two levels into cleric. As for your subclasses, it’s best to go with College of Lore and Life Domain.

Sorcerer Cleric

Are you looking for a more offensive build centered around spellcasting? Then the sorcerer cleric is worth a try. With this multiclass combo, you can drench your enemies in water and then zap them with lightning spells for double damage.

This build can operate with five levels into cleric and seven levels into sorcerer. As for subclasses, you’re going to want to choose Tempest Domain and Storm Sorcery.

And that’s our guide on the best cleric multiclass builds in Baldur’s Gate 3. If you’re interested in other multiclassing possibilities, feel free to check out this sorlock build or read up on ranger subclasses and fighter subclasses.
