Baldur’s Gate 3: 8 Hilarious Mods You Should Try
Most of the mods available for Larian Studio’s Baldur’s Gate 3 are meant to enhance gameplay, but these mods exist purely to inject some humor.
Grant Flight Spell
The Grant Flight spell is what you need to give party members the temporary ability to fly. It is a Level 3 transmutation spell that targets one character at first. When this spell levels up, you can grant additional allies the ability to fly. The ability lasts 10 turns. Flying does not cost a bonus action like jumping. This means you can have a whole party of characters zipping around during combat. It can come in handy in combat areas with lots of verticality or bottomless chasms.
How to Learn Grant Flight
The Grant Flight spell can be learned by any Level 5 sorcerers, warlocks, wizards, and druids. Bards can also learn the spell at Level 6 or 10 by pursuing the College of Lore subclass. This allows bards to learn “Magical Secrets” by learning two spells that belong to other classes.
If you miss the Grant Flight spell through conventional leveling up, you can find Scrolls of Grant Flight. Do not waste these single-use scrolls in a fight. Wizards can learn spells directly from scrolls for a small price of gold. Use this to your advantage if you ever accidentally skip an important spell.
How to Use Fly
Once you have the Grant Flight spell, you may need to open up the Spellbook and assign it to the character. This is where you can drag the spell onto the hotbar on PC. On the console versions, preparing spells in the Spellbook will place them on that character’s radial menu. You can edit its placement and swap its spot on the radial menu if you choose to.
As long as you have a Level 3 spell slot or higher, you can cast the Grant Flight spell. Choose a nearby character and give them the ability to fly. This is not automatic. You then have to choose Fly as a separate action that’s been added to the radial menu or hotbar. Use this ability to flank enemies or descend treacherous terrain.
