There has been a potential issue with the Multiclassing in BG3 recently, found by most of the DnD lovers. After playing the game for a while and reaching the stage where you Multiclass to a different Class in BG3, you might notice that the spells from the second class default to the first class spell level slot. There is no other way to cast the spell on the second class, but you can somehow use Cantrips. Here in this guide, we are going to discuss Multiclass Spell Slot Bug in Baldur’s Gate 3 (BG3).

About Baldur’s Gate 3 (BG3)
Baldur’s Gate 3 is the latest and greatest in Baldur’s Gate series, being the successor to the decades-old Baldur’s Gate. The game is a classic RPS that you can enjoy with your friends or control multiple characters yourself.
Being quite like any other MMORPG, you have various classes, archetypes, and then that fantasy mixed onto them. Each one you choose will pave a different path onwards that you can enjoy with those crispy, jaw-dropping cinematics.
There is that main quest that slowly gets you around and furthers the side quests to help you stay in touch with your spiritual side as well. First of all, you start off as the main character, who is also termed the Origin Character. He/She has his/her very own unique background and story, also dialogues and cinematics.
Now, as you proceed with the game, you will find your character becoming stronger with those levels, equipment, skills, and special abilities. Yes, you are also further delving deep into the story of Baldur’s Gate 3 as well.
Now the fun part begins with the Combat or Fighting Mechanics of the game. There is a ton of complexity here, just like other role-playing Legendary Games including Pathfinder, as well as your favorite DnD (Dungeon and Dragons).
You get your own turn that you have to utilize and each step you take onwards will pave a different path for you or your characters. All the Turn-Based games are heavily dependent on the decisions you are going to take. This includes your path, present, and future, and that makes them so much more complex or fun.
Finally, there is a whole villain arc as well, where you get to experience the villain’s history. You get to slowly progress and fight her/him in the game.
Baldur’s Gate 3 Spell Slots Explained!
Now, the first thing that you need to understand is how BG3 provides you with the Spell Slots mechanism. It is different from the typical DnD, making it more accessible.
Spell Slots are ammo for your spells. There are slots for your spells and you can basically put these spells there. They are limited and have different levels.
Each spell you use, also has a different level, requiring a similar level slot or a higher one. In simple words, you can put 2nd level Spell in the 2nd Level Spell Slot or higher, not less.
Pretty simple to understand, but let’s get going to the Spell Slot Level.
When you unlock the first level, you will have 3 cantrips that you can choose yourself. At higher levels, you can basically learn more. In the first level, you will have a spellbook that has around 6 total wizard spells, all being level 1.
So, you will need Level 1 or higher Spell Slot to equip those and use those in the game as of now. As you proceed, you will get higher-level spells with higher-level slots to use them.
Multiclass Spell Slot Bug in Baldur’s Gate 3 (BG3)
Now the bug (potential) works like this; you have something else, other than Wizard as your first class and then when you go to the multiclassing, you unlock Wizard, as your second class. Reaching level 1 and unlocking level 1 spell as usual, you somehow have them on the default Spell Level Slot of your default class.
As we explained, this is pretty much the base of the game. Your first class Spell Slots are there and once you unlock the second class, you start from Level 1. You can use those only on a Level 1 Spell Slot or higher.
As your default is on a higher level, you are basically playing the game on a higher-level slot. After putting in the spells, you will have these higher-level slots available, specific to those spells. Hope you understand this in detail!
