How To Heal Heroes In Baldur’s Gate 3 

If you want to survive in Baldur's Gate 3, you need to know how to heal. There are several ways to do so. Read on to learn more about them.

To survive in Baldur’s Gate 3, you must know how to heal your heroes. Healing provides a way to reverse the damage done to you and last longer in battle. Your enemies will not have mercy on you and will try to take you out. You can get hit and take damage even when wearing and if your enemy rolls high enough.

It is important to heal and restore your hit points. The question is, how do you heal in Bg3.

There are multiple ways to heal your heroes in the game, ranging from using different spells to consuming a portion during battle. Resting in Baldur’s Gate 3 is the best way to restore your health, but you may not always have the luxury.

For example, you won’t be resting in combat, and using a potion to heal out of combat would be a waste. So, knowing how to heal and how to do it is important. 

Healing by consuming Potions 

Potions in Baldur’s Gate 3 will be how your heroes heal. The ratio of your health restored depends entirely on the potency of the consumable. Potions are available in three varieties, each more potent than the others.

  1. Potion of healing 
  1. Potion of greater healing 
  1. Potion of superior healing  

The regular potion of healing will only restore a fraction of your health. At the same time, the potion of superior healing restores the majority of it. But potions are expensive, and getting them in the early game is a bit difficult.


You can also find them in chests and by looting bodies, which is rare.

Healing through Spells 

There are several healing spells that some classes can cast. They heal a portion of your health. Some spells restore a little health, while others give you a big chunk of recovery. Both your character and your party members can cast healing spells. For example, Shadowheart is a cleric with access to healing spells. You may use her if your chosen class cannot cast healing spells.

The different spells that heal you in Baldur’s Gate 3 are as follows  

  1. Healing Word 
  1. Prayer of healing 
  1. Healing radiance 
  1. Lay on hands: Lesser heal 
  1. Lay on hands: Greater heal  

Heal by taking Rest 

Resting is also a great way to heal your party. You also restore spells this way, so if you expend all your healing spells, this will restore them. There are two versions of resting, a short rest and a long rest. In a short rest, you rest for a while and only recover a small portion of your health. In a long rest, you spend more time but recover all your health and spell slots.

Using Bonus Actions to Heal 

Some characters in Baldur’s Gate 3 can use bonus actions to heal. These bonus actions are slightly different from your regular actions. Some classes, such as the fighter, allow you to heal to a certain degree. The fighter can use the Second Wind bonus to recover a small percentage of hit points and heal themselves.
