Baldur’s Gate 3 – Do you reload or live with the dice result?

Baldurs, dice, Gate, Live, Reload, result

Do the dice decide the fate of your hero, or do you help out?

To be the smith of one’s own destiny is certainly an honorable intention. In a game like Baldur’s Gate 3, where we’re locked into the Dungeons & Dragons rulebook, but difficult to implement. Here we steer our hero*in in the “right” direction, but in the end the die decides whether our plan works out completely.

Unless… yes, unless we help by reloading the last saved game and hope to have better luck with the next roll. But would you do something like that? Would you cheat on a decision important to you to avoid critical failure? That’s what we want to know from you today in our GamePro survey.

Do you reload if you don’t get lucky with the dice?

Do you let the D20 decide your fate, do you help out from time to time, or do you only accept your desired result, especially when it comes to important decisions?

Did you activate the Karmic Cube?

To avoid too much frustration when rolling the dice in Baldur’s Gate 3, the so-called karmic dice are activated by default in the settings.

What do the Karmic Cubes do? They tine the dice so that no sustained streaks of bad luck can occur. The system works in such a way that after each bad throw, the chance of a good throw is slightly increased. If you want to know more about the system, this way:

We would also be very happy if you explain your choice pro/con the Karmic Cube or for or against reloading the savegame in the comments. Do you generally do this in role-playing games, or is the rather complex Baldur’s Gate 3 an exception here?

After several years in Early Access, Baldur’s Gate 3 was released for PC on August 3rd and will find its way to PS5 on September 6th. Of course, we will fully support the console release for you, just like Starfield, which will be released on the same day for Xbox Series X/S and PC.
