Picking your Druid’s race and background in Baldur’s Gate 3

In Baldur’s Gate 3, a Druid’s primary stat is wisdom since it’s the one used for spellcasting. As such, our goal is to pick races, backgrounds, and skills that can synergize with the attribute.


Character race

Ideally, you’ll want a race that has a bonus to wisdom, as well as dexterity (bonus to dex weapons, lowering an enemy’s chance to hit, and, of course, initiative).

Some options here include the Human, Gold Dwarf, Woof Half-Elf, and Wood Elf. In my opinion, though, the Wood Elf already provides the ideal results. Not only will you have +2 dexterity and +1 wisdom, but you’ll also have some innate skills and proficiencies (Perception, Stealth, Darkvision, and more).

There are five skills governed by the wisdom attribute in Baldur’s Gate 3. These are Animal Handling, Insight, Medicine, Perception, and Survival.

Now, various backgrounds might provide you with one (i.e., Hermit with Medicine/Religion and Outlander with Athletics/Survival). However, you can go with the Folk Hero background since it provides proficiencies in two of these (Animal Handling and Survival).

Anyway, since we’re already discussing these concepts, let’s talk about the skills and abilities (attributes) of the Druid.
