How to complete Faith Leap Trial in Baldur’s Gate 3
To start the Faith Leap Trial, approach the glowing statue and interact with it. Now, you can follow the marked golden path all the way to the end and reach the Umbral Gem.
The three glowing orbs around the statue represent the chances you have, if you fall off the invisible path one orb will disappear, if you fall off 3 times then your character will start getting damage from all directions resulting in death.
There are also some other alternative methods to complete the faith leap trial in BG3. One is to drink 1 Potion of Glorious Vaulting and jump your way to the end. Do keep in mind you need to step onto the invisible path before you jump. Second, you can light up the whole room with a Daylight Spell and easily follow the now visible path.
If all that fails, Fly spell or Misty Step can also do the trick if you want to make easy work of this puzzle. Otherwise, you can try to follow the pattern shown on the ground just before the blood altar.
