If you're familiar with the mechanics of Dungeons and Dragons then you will be happy to know that the ability to multi-class exists in Baldur's Gate 3. For those who may not be as familiar, this allows you to divide your points between two classes instead of sticking to the one you chose at the start of the game. This is primarily intended for experienced players who want to fully maximize their builds, while new players may want to shy away on their first playthrough, or at least use a guide to avoid ruining their build and needing to respec and start over. Multi-classing is easy to do, but not explained, so here's how you can expand your skillset between two classes in Baldur's Gate 3.

How to multi-class

You can choose to begin multi-classing anytime you level up in Baldur's Gate 3 after starting the game and earning your first level. You can only do this when you have a level-up available, so make sure to remember to do so when you have the opportunity.

Step 1: Finish the opening and level up by any means.

Step 2: Click on the upward arrow on your character portrait to go to the level-up screen.

Step 3: Select the button at the top right of the level up box with the image of two crossed weapons and a plus above it. When you mouse over it it will say Add Class.

Step 4: You will now be able to choose any of the classes you haven't chosen yet to multi-class in.

If you choose to multi-class, you will only level up one class at a time, preventing you from diving as deep into a single class. Keep that in mind when choosing to split your focus.

All companions in Baldur’s Gate 3 and how to get them
Wyll with horns dancing.

There's a lot to see in Baldur's Gate 3, but you're not going to get far without a few good companions by your side. Thankfully, you'll stumble upon a wide assortment of NPCs that'd love nothing more than to accompany you on your journey. These friendly faces fill several different roles -- from mages and healers to archers and warriors, there's bound to be a companion that augments your playstyle.

Many of these companions also come with their own series of quests and unlockable skills, turning them into more than just faceless characters to help you in combat. In fact, you can spend hours unraveling their narratives, and depending on your actions, your companions might look very different at the end of Baldur's Gate 3 than when you first met them.

How to get Meowmere in Stardew Valley

We all love a good, secret Easter egg in games, especially Stardew Valley, which is absolutely full of them. We were already excited about all the new content in the 1.6 update, but there was one item included that was never even teased. The Meowmere is a new, super-secret sword that pays a nice little tribute to Terraria. The complex sequence of events you need to perform to get it calls back to that classic crafting game. The Meowmere is intentionally hard to get, but you can save a lot of time by following these steps.

In classic Tekken fashion, Tekken 8 is full of lore, as well as additional "what if" lore content. With a brilliant new story mode and a lot of catch-up material jam-packed into the game, there's a lot to take in.

Accompanying all of the canon narratives of the title are Character Episodes — mini arcade mode runs that feature each character in their final matches of the King of Iron Fist Tournament. Upon completing four fights, you're given a gorgeous cinematic ending that showcases what would happen if your selected fighter wins.
