This Multiclass guide focuses on the Multiclass Fighter in Baldur’s Gate 3, combined with the Fighter class, to create a powerful build.

Best BG3 Multiclass Fighter Build

This build has been updated for the patch 4 version of Baldur’s Gate 3.

Multiclass Fighter Build Guide

The Fighter class in Baldur’s Gate 3 is a powerful and versatile class that excels in all aspects of combat. Fighters are proficient in all types of armor and weapons, and they have several abilities that allow them to deal damage, protect themselves, and control the battlefield. The Fighter’s most iconic ability is Action Surge, which allows them to take extra action on their turn. This in combination with Extra Attack allows the FIghter to take multiple actions and attack per turn making it one of the strongest combatants on the battlefield. Consider this build an easy-to-use, powerful, front-line damage dealer wielding a two-handed Greatsword with heavy armour.

This Fighter build is focused on multiclassing. Multiclassing, meaning combining two classes, Paladin and Fighter further increases this build’s potential in BG3 combat. Moreover, this guide will walk you through creating the Best Baldur’s Gate 3 Multiclass Fighter Build Guide. Consider this a heavy armour, melee-focused damage dealer. This build will provide some of the highest single-target damage in BG3, and using both the Paladin and Fighter will create a fun and unique Fighter playstyle.

Multiclassing Explained

BG3 How to Multiclass

Multiclassing in Baldur’s Gate 3 allows your character to gain a level in a new class instead of advancing in their current class. To Multiclass in BG3, hit the top right plus button to add a class, so that it will bring up a new screen with the other classes in Baldur’s Gate 3.  

Multiclassing grants most of the benefits of that new class, but there are some limitations. Your multiclassing character does not receive all the proficiencies of their new class. You also cannot multiclass when playing on Explorer Difficult.  

Below is a list of Multiclass Proficiencies gained by taking one level in a new class:

Multiclass Proficiencies in BG3

Best Fighter Multiclass

The best class for the Fighter to multiclass into is the Paladin because you can get the Divine Smite, Fighting Style, and Spellcasting. Also, a secondary multiclass choice for Fighter is the Barbarian for Rage, Reckless Attack, and Unarmoured Defence.

Here is the best multiclass choice for a Fighter build in Baldur’s Gate 3:

PaladinBarbarian
SpellcastingRage
Fighting StyleReckless Attack
Divine SmiteUnarmoured Defence

For this build, we recommend 8 levels of investment into the Fighter class and 4 levels into the Paladin. This will give you Action Surge, Extra Attack, 3 feats, Divine Smite, Spellcasting, and 2 Fighting Styles. The Vengeance Paladin Subclass will aid in bonus action utility and healing, while the Battle Master Fighter subclass helps with crowd control and combat dynamics. Combine these two for ultra-high damage, survivability, and a fun gameplay style with a lot more flash than your standard Fighter build.

Character Creation

Race

Baldur's Gate 3 Half-Orc race example
Baldur's Gate 3 Tiefling race example

Half-Orc is the Best Race Choice for a multiclass Fighter because you gain Savage attack, rolling an additional damage dice on critical hits. The Half-Orc also gains Relentless Endurance, Darkvision, and Menacing giving you a balanced racial choice for damage and survivability. However, a secondary choice is the Zariel Tiefling for fire resistance, two Smite spells, and Darkvision. 

Here is the best race choice for a multiclass Fighter build in Baldur’s Gate 3:

Multiclass Fighter Build – Level Progression in Baldur’s Gate 3

Level 1

Baldur's Gate 3 Multiclass Fighter Build
BG3 Great Weapon Fighting
BG3 Second Wind Fighter Skill

Follow our character creator to pick all correct backgroundraceskills, and ability scoring focusing on Strength, Constitution, and Charisma. For this build, we will initially use 5 levels of Fighter and order to obtain the Great Weapon Master feat at level 4, and Extra Attack at level 5. This will allow additional attacks with one action and an additional attack with a bonus action on a critical hit or enemy kill. Then, the build will transition into 4 levels of Paladin in order to unlock Divine Smite and spellcasting. Finally, you’ll come back to Fighter to finish off important feats and class features. The Fighter unlocks their subclass with 3 levels of investment and the Paladin unlocks there with 3 levels as well.

Your goal is to find some heavy armor and a two-handed weapon Greatsword ideally. The first option is Everburn Blade, the Sword of Justice, and Silver Sword all in Act 1. You can grab medium armor from Lae’zel in the introduction if you don’t plan on using her. Then look to access the Hollowed City at the north of the starting spot post tutorial where Dammon and others will sell good armor.  Below we will walk you through the leveling progression when using the Best Baldur’s Gate 3 Multiclass Fighter Build.

The Fighter at this level unlocks two features, Great Weapon Fighting and Second Wind. Great Weapon Fighting: When you roll a 1 or 2 on a damage die for an attack with a two-handed melee weapon, that die is rerolled once. This just helps us not fail on dice rolls and gives us more reason to use two-handed weapons.

Second Wind: You will receive a very powerful self-heal immediately called Second Wind. This allows you to heal yourself using a bonus action, not an action.  This is very important because you can heal and attack in one turn. The gameplay at this level is simply attacking with a melee weapon and using the range attacks when you cannot close the distance. Use Second Wind when you need a heal and or a potion and rinse and repeat.

Level 2

BG3 Fighter Level 2
Baldur's Gate 3 Action Surge

Level 2 the Fighter gets a very powerful skill, Action Surge:  gain one additional action. This allows the Fighter very early to take multiple actions, which will likely be weapon attacks. This makes you formidable very early in the game. Moreover, you only need a Short Rest to replenish this, which can be done twice in the bottom right of your User Interface. 

You now have a way to get two attacks in one turn along with a self-heal. Play aggressively and charge in. Don’t forget to equip a bow because you want some type of range weapon when melee isn’t an option because of distance. What you lack at this level is crowd control and mobility. You can solve both of those through your subclass next level and gear.

Level 3

BG3 Battle Master Subclass
BG3 Superiority Die Resource

Level three you get access to your subclass and for this build, we want to select Battle Master: this will give you access to a new mechanic called Superiority Dice, which are d8s. Think of this as an additional resource that can be replenished during long rest. You will also get to select three maneuvers which are attacks that consume superiority dice. We suggest the following:

  • Disarming Attack: Spend a superiority die to make an attack that deals additional damage and possibly forces the target to drop the weapons they are holding. This essentially shuts down completely weapon-based damage dealer if you drop their weapon. You can use this at melee or at range and is super effective against Barbarians, Fighters, and Longbow users.  You can disarm and even pick up the weapon immediately following preventing the enemy from using it. This doesn’t work on casters, but amazing skill for the entirety of the game.
  • Trip Attack: Spend a superiority die to make an attack that deals an additional 1d8 damage and possibly knocks the target Prone. The target must be Large or smaller. This attack is used for a stun in melee or at range. Prone is a status effect and this can be used on casters or non-weapon-based enemies.  With these two maneuvers, you will have battlefield control early instead of mindlessly swinging your two-handed weapon.
  • Riposte: When a hostile creature misses you with a melee attack, expend a superiority die to retaliate with a powerful strike that deals an additional 1d8 damage. Your Fighter will most likely be taking a lot of damage, and if they miss this use a reaction (not an action) and do some free damage in return using your superiority dice resource.  Don’t use the resource if you are low and need a stun next turn.
BG3 Fighter Manoeuvre Examples

Gameplay on the Fighter at this level gives you two types of control disarm and stun. You can also use Pommel Strike on a Greatsword to proc Daze as well. Continue to use crowd control and weapon damage and use Action Surge when you need another attack. Short rest after every battle if possible to replenish your resources.

Level 4

BG3 Great Weapon Master Feat
Baldur's Gate 3 Great Weapon Master All In Toggle

At Level 4 you can take a feat or and we recommend taking the Great Weapon Master: When a melee attack scores a critical hit or kills a creature, you can make another melee attack as a bonus action. When attacking with Heavy Weapons you are proficient with, attack rolls take a -5 penalty, but their damage increases by 10.

Great Weapon Master (GWM) is a massive boost to our kill potential and makes your bonus action much more valuable. When you kill an enemy or critically strike one, you then can use a free GWM attack with a bonus action. Next level you will get Extra Attack, which grants two attacks with one action improving the chances of triggering this effect and overall a big boost to your damage.

GWM has another component to it, which increases your damage but makes your attacks more difficult to hit. You can toggle this feature on or off. Depending on your Strength and other factors, this might be very low initially. If so, toggle it off until you increase your Strength or get a Cleric to cast the Bless spell. There are other powerful consumables below in the consumable sections that will help with the percentage of landing an attack and overall damage as well.

Look to move close to a weakened or near-dead target to take advantage of GWM. Movement will most likely be an issue because you will need high speed to traverse from one target to another. The Haste Helm and other early game sets that give you momentum (increase movement) are vital to ensuring you get the most out of each turn and don’t just shoot a heavy crossbow shot.

Level 5

BG3 Level 5 Fighter
BG3 Extra Attack Explained

Level 5 is where the Fighter starts to feel very powerful. You get Extra Attack, along with Action Surge AND Great Weapon Master. Extra Attack: Allows you to make two attacks when you take the Attack action on your turn. In one turn, you can attack twice with Extra Attack, kill an enemy or critical strike, and attack again with Great Weapon Master. You use Action Surge and attack another two times for a total of 5 in one turn. You can make it 7 by either using a Potion of Speed or having someone cast Haste on you. This gives you another action once per turn.

And this is why the Fighter is so strong, in an action meta game, nothing beats it. You need to use superiority dice and those attacks sparingly when the situation calls for it. Otherwise, just keep it simple and blast people with multiple attacks!

From this level, you have the foundation of a powerful Fighter Build. We are going to transition into four levels of Paladin to take advantage of all that class has to offer including Divine Smite and Spellcasting!

Level 6

BG3 Multiclass Fighter Paladin
BG3 Oath of Vengeance Subclass

At Level 6, select the + sign in the upper right of the leveling screen. Select the Paladin class and the Vengeance subclass. Below is what you unlock with 1 level into the Vengeance Paladin:

  • Channeled Oath Charges: Paladin-specific resource that allows the casting of spells and abilities.
  • Lay on Hands: Use your blessed touch to heal a creature or cure it of all diseases and poisons.
  • Divine Sense: Gain Advantage on Attack Rolls against celestials, fiends, and undead.
  • Oath of Vengeance Subclass: subclass focused on damage and mobility.
  • Inquisitor’s Might: You or an ally’s weapon attacks deal an additional 2 Radiant damage and can Daze enemies for 1 turn.
  • Oath of Vengeance Tenets: Fight the Greater Evil. Exerting your wisdom, identify the higher morality in any given instance, and fight for it—no Mercy for the Wicked.

The Vengeance subclass will help aid in single-target damage and provide additional spells. You must maintain your Oath, which is influenced by dialogue choices and behavior. In general, don’t go around murdering peasants and double-crossing allies. If you want to play as a murdering rampaging Fighter/Paladin, then use the Oathbreaker subclass. This will only change a few subclass features while maintaining the essential Paladin feel and this build outline. Read this guide on how to become or remove the Oathbreaker if this happens.

With one level into Paladin, you mainly unlock your resource, a useful heal Lay on Hands, and some buffs. The gameplay is mainly the same, except you have more utility.

Level 7

Baldur's Gate 3 Champion Fighter Defence Fighting Style

With two levels invested into Paladin, you unlock a lot of features including a Fighting Style and Divine Smite. Here’s what happens at this level:

  • Defence Fighting Style: While you are wearing armor, you gain a +1 bonus to AC.
  • Divine Smite (class feature): deals 2d8 Radiant weapon damage and consumes a spell slot.
  • Shield of Faith: Surround a creature with a shimmering field of magic that increases its Armour Class by 2.
  • Divine Favour: Your prayer empowers you with divine radiance. Your weapons deal an additional 1d4 Radiant damage.
  • Command: Command a creature to flee, move closer, freeze, drop to the ground or drop its weapon.
  • Thunderous Smite (spell selection): Your weapon rings with thunder as you strike, pushing your target 3m away and possibly knocking it Prone.

Divine Smite is a signature ability of the Paladin class in Baldur’s Gate 3. It allows Paladins to expend a spell slot to deal additional radiant damage to a creature they have hit with a melee weapon attack. The amount of extra damage is equal to 2d8 for a 1st-level spell slot, plus 1d8 for each spell level higher than 1st. The damage increases by 1d8 if the target is an undead or a fiend.

Baldur's Gate 3 Divine Smite

BG3 Divine Smite Reaction

Baldur’s Gate 3 Divine Smite Reaction

Divine Smite can be toggled on or off in the reactions menu under the user interface. This allows you to decide whether or not to use it on a given attack. This is important because Paladins can quickly run out of spell slots, limiting their damage output. You don’t want to waste a spell slot on a weak creature. Divine Smite isn’t considered a spell and doesn’t require concentration. It simply adds damage via spell slot resources. This will boost your damage, and you can now still use two attacks with Fighter and Extra Attack.

The Fighting Style selection assumes you will follow the two-handed weapon and heavy armor gameplay. Defence style increases your AC by +1 passively helping you avoid including attacks. In terms of spells, use sparingly as your spell slots should go to Divine Smite. The command spell is a powerful stun similar to Battle Master Manevours. Thunderous Smite is costly because it consumes action and a bonus action, but has some utility when you need damage and a chance at a stun. Divine Favour is a way to deal a little more radiant damage per turn but consumes a spell slot as well.

Our suggestion is to add some Divine Smite damage to your Fighter gameplay. The Battle Master Disarming and Trip attacks alongside Divine Smite give you great crowd control and even more bursts. Expect to long rest a lot more frequently until you increase your spell slots and use sparingly.

Level 7 Fighter Multiclass Spells: Shield of Faith, Divine Favour, Command, and Thunderous Smite.

Level 8

Level 3 into the Paladin unlocks two subclass spells, two subclass actions, and a newly prepared spell.

  • Bane (subclass spell): Up to 3 creatures receive a -1d4 penalty to Attack Rolls and Saving Throws.
  • Hunter’s Mark (subclass spell): Mark a creature as your quarry to deal an additional 1d6 Slashing Damage whenever you hit it with a weapon attack. If the target dies before the spell ends, you can mark a new creature without expanding a spell Slot.
  • Abjure Enemy (subclass ability): Frighten an enemy, they’ll be easier to hit and cannot move. Fiends and undead have Disadvantage on this Saving Throw.
  • Vow of Enmity (subclass ability): Gain Advantage on Attack Rolls against an enemy.
  • Divine Health (subclass feature): prevents the disease from affecting you.
  • Searing Smite (spell selection): Your Weapon deals an extra 1d6 Fire damage and marks the target with Searing Smite. A target with Searing Smite takes 1d6 Fire damage every turn until it succeeds on a Constitution saving throw.

Abjure Enemy and Vow Enmity are not technically spells and consume your Channeled Oath resource, so consider them a utility skill. Bane and Hunter’s Mark are useful spells, but both require concentration, so they become less useful and typically are avoided. Divine Health is a passive feature and is helpful. Searing Smite is another Smite spell, and if you are a Zariel Tiefling, you can use one for free per long rest. The gameplay remains the same at this level, though it can be helpful to use Hunter’s Mark if you don’t have another use for your bonus action each turn. Typically Misty Step or Great Weapon Master proc or what consumes your bonus action.

Level 8 Fighter Multiclass Spells: Shield of Faith, Divine Favour, Command, Thunderous Smite, and Searing Smite.

Level 9

We are going to stay in Paladin for one more level in order to unlock a feat. Since we took Great Weapon Master first, we will increase our strength by +2. With another feat, the next level, we can increase to 20 which is the cap through ability improvements. Below are our recommendations at this level:

  • Lay on Hands Charge (class action): Use your blessed touch to heal a creature or cure it of all diseases and poisons.
  • Compelled Duel (spell selection): Compel an enemy to attack only you. It cannot attack other creatures.
  • Ability Improvement (feat selection): +2 to the Strength ability score.

This concludes our Paladin levels. You added a lot more utility and burst potential and we will now swap back to the Fighter for the remainder of the leveling process.

Level 8 Fighter Multiclass Spells: Shield of Faith, Divine Favour, Command, Thunderous Smite, and Searing Smite.

Level 10

You want to swap back to Fighter at this level. The main reason is, that the Paladin gains Extra Attack at level 5 which is redundant with the Fighter. Moreover, you want to hit 8/4 in order to gain four feats. This allows you to get your strength to 20 with two feats for massive damage. So take Ability Improvement (feat selection): +2 to the Strength ability score. From here, we will gain some more utility with Manoeuvre’s next level and another feat.

Level 11

With 7 levels into the Fighter, the Battle Master Subclass unlocks two more Manoeuvres. We recommend taking Pushing Attack and Precision Attack.

  • Pushing Attack: Spend a superiority die to make an attack that deals an additional 1d8 damage and possibly pushes the target back 4.5m.
  • Precision Attack: You can spend a Superiority Die to add it to the result of an Attack Roll.

Pushing Attack is simply a knockback and is helpful to knock enemies off cliffs or off an ally who needs to retreat. Precision Attack simply consumes a Superiority Die and adds damage. This doesn’t cost an action or a bonus action, so it can be useful to add damage when you don’t need to stun or disarm an enemy and have 4 or so Superiority Dice.

Level 12

BG3 Savage Attacker Feat

Congratulations on reaching the maximum level with the Best Baldur’s Gate 3 Multiclass Fighter Build! For this final level, you get another feat, which we suggest Savage Attacker: You roll your damage dice twice when making melee weapon attacks and use the highest result. This will help increase your damage even further and the combination of Extra Attack, Divine Smite, and Action surge gives you massive burst potential. Make sure to check below in our recommended gear section for more details about this build.
