Paladin is the most widely used class in Baldur’s Gate 3, and 65% of players “veer on the side of good” — by Gamer

Paladin is now the most played class in Baldur’s Gate 3, and I don’t think it’s a coincidence that most gamers roleplay as the good people.

Earlier today, the game’s creator, Larian Studios, published a helpful infographic detailing the massive RPG’s first weekend of sales. It validates the popularity of the Paladin class, which I assume is due to the factors I also considered while selecting the class for my unique character: it is strong, has healing, can use a variety of weapons, and can do many crucial tasks.

Sorcerers come in second, Warlocks come in third, Rogues, Bards, and Barbarians tie for fourth, and then Sorcerers come in second again. Rogue’s absence from the top three honestly surprises me, but it’s also not surprising that spellcasters rate so highly in a game with a magic system as captivating as Baldur’s Gate 3‘s, or even more captivating than D&D’s. The Cleric class has been by far the least popular thus far. Sorry, priests.

Larian says that “players veer on the side of good” when it comes to diplomacy, exposing the moral compass of its player base. With 65.1% of players defending the grove and 34.9% attacking it, it appears that the first encounter with the grove sanctuary served as a crucial test for this situation.
As players progress farther in the game and are presented with harder decisions, it will be interesting to observe how this statistic changes and how Larian calculates it. I also wonder if PS5 users’ choices may differ considerably from those of PC users.

The selections for custom character races are much more lopsided, in case you’re curious as I was. At first, second, and third place, respectively, Half-Elves, Humans, and Elves have a commanding lead. At fourth, fifth, and sixth place, respectively, Dragonborn, Tieflings, and Drow are in a smaller but still competitive bracket of their own. The lowest five, however—Half-Orc, Dwarf, Gnome, Halflings, and Githyanki—are reportedly fairly uncommon.

This information reminds me that there are many Elven Paladins out there doing good deeds, and it makes my heart glad that I am following my pledge.
