  • INT (Intelligence) or WIS (Wisdom) greater than 13.
  • This feat is available to any class at the fourth level (provided they meet the prerequisites listed above)

Opting for the Ritual Caster feat will help you gain only two Ritual Spells. Decide carefully because there is no way to change your mind without agreeing to the character’s specifications entirely.

Only one casting per day is necessary for three of nine Ritual Spells because they remain active until long rest. Due to this reason, long strider, disguise self, and speaking with animals are the best choices to acquire as Ritual Spells for your characters as soon as possible.

Mastering Ritual Spells in Baldur’s Gate 3 offers players distinct tactical advantages. Whether speaking to animals, disguising one’s self, or summoning familiars, these reusable abilities enhance gameplay dynamics. By understanding each spell and the Ritual Caster feat requirements, players can strategically enhance their characters for immersive in-game experiences.
