Dice System is common in Baldur’s Gate series, so of course, the latest title in the franchise also has this system. Dice has several functions in Baldur’s Gate 3, and this system can be affected by an option in the settings known as Karmic Dice. In this guide, I will explain everything you need to know about Karmic Dice BG3. So, by the end, you will know whether to use it or not.
What Is Karmic Dice In Baldur’s Gate 3?
You might not know much about the Karmic Dice in-game as there isn’t much explanation regarding this feature. The only thing you would know is that it avoids failure and success while keeping the results even. You should remember that Karmic Dice is an option you can turn on to balance out positive and negative dice rolls.
Now, positive rolls are those that are in your favor, like getting a critical hit in a battle, and negative rolls are just the opposite.
This option will basically balance out both outcomes and make Baldur’s Gate 3 random and even. If you had a streak of positive rolls, then this option will try to balance out the odds and make you get more negative rolls. Keep in mind that this option is, by default, turned on, so you can turn it off in the settings whenever you want.
Is Karmic Dice Helpful?
Karmic Dice is undoubtedly a helpful feature in Baldur’s Gate 3, but only for someone who is the first time playing a game of this genre. If you are a complete beginner, then it is better to leave the option on as it will help you in the long run. When you get to know more about Baldur’s Gate 3, you can turn it off for more randomness.
But before that, make sure to keep it on, as it will help to keep the positive and negative rolls in check. So, if the option is on, you won’t have to worry about continuously getting bad rolls, as eventually, you will get some good rolls, too, and vice versa.
To experienced players or those who want Baldur’s Gate 3 to be more challenging, I would recommend turning the option off. Karmic Dice not only increases the damage you take from the enemies but also increases the chance of hitting everyone in your party.
So, this could be a disadvantage for you in some cases. With that said, it totally depends on your preference, so if you want to keep it on, then you should go for that, as having fun matters the most.
That is almost everything you would want to know about Karmic Dice BG3. While this feature is helpful for beginners, I would suggest experienced players turn it off as it will be more fun.
