Baldur’s Gate 3 releases player stats for race, class, player choices

Baldur's Gate 3

Larian Studios has released a few infographics showing off the choices players made during the first week of Baldur’s Gate 3; including the most popular races, classes, and a few bits of trivia.

Perhaps unsurprisingly, Half-Elf was the most common race, followed by human with Githyanki, Gnome, and Dwarf. The conventionally attractive races take the lead by a wide margin, with perhaps Dragonborn being an outlier, but with how many furries we’ve seen on Twitter praising the game maybe it’s to be expected.

Class choices were surprising with most players picking Paladin. The class offers unique roleplay opportunities (then again all the classes do thanks to Larian’s writing).

This is followed by Sorcerer and Warlock (we’re noticing a trend with classes that have Charisma scaling). Cleric takes dead last because to be honest it’s pretty worthless in BG3 with the glut of healing potions available.

Lastly there’s Origin characters, that is characters who are available as companions but also can be chosen as the main protagonist! It’s a pretty unique feature that gives the game a bit of replayability; allowing users to roleplay their favorite companion from the very beginning.

The Dark Urge isn’t listed in the graph despite being an Origin character, probably because you still get to customize them.

Larian also posted a bunch of other statistics on Steam including how players approached the first leg of the adventure, how many NPCs got shoved off cliffs, and even the some of the most common causes of death.

We also have our own review of Baldur’s Gate 3, you can check it out here.

Baldur’s Gate 3 is available now on Windows PC (via Steam). The PS5 and Xbox Series X/S releases are coming at a later date.
