If you thought wizards in Baldur’s Gate 3 didn’t know enough spells, here’s some good news: you can actually learn more spells!

Wizards are special magic users in both D&D and BG3. They get their magic power from studying the Weave, which is like a magical pattern that lets them learn new spells.

Learning new spells is super helpful, especially when you want to save your special magic slots for battles. It’s also great for using spells that don’t need potions or scrolls.

Here’s how you can learn new spells in Baldur’s Gate 3:

Get All Scrolls You Can Find

Unfortunately, only one class can learn new spells: Wizard.

Wizards can copy spells from special papers called spell scrolls into their own spellbooks. But this costs some gold pieces.

To make it happen in-game, press “K” to open your spell book. That area where you prepare your spells.

There, click on the book icon to open a new tab. This tab will reveal the spells you can learn from the scrolls you carry.

The amount of gold you need depends on the level of the spell. And, unless it is extraordinarily expensive, I can’t think of a reason not to do it.

Having all the spells gives you more choices. On top of that, you can even learn Ritual spells, such as Feather Fall, allowing you to cast them without spending spell slots.

We all know that having lots of spells makes things easier in the game or more interesting, at the very least.

Spells allow you to solve problems in super creative ways, and that’s a big part of what Baldur’s Gate 3 is all about.

You might worry that you’ll make a mistake when picking spells when leveling up your wizard. But if you can get spells from scrolls, you don’t need to worry too much about your choices.

You can be sure that strong spells like “Hold Monster” and other really good ones can be learned from these special papers.

So, you can just pick cool spells that make your enemies lose their hit points when your wizard levels up.

I didn’t even think twice about learning “Fireball” and “Lightning Bolt” early in the game because I knew I would find more useful spells later in spell scrolls.

Sometimes we want to defeat enemies effectively; other times, we just want to go through them.

Either way, I eventually found or bought new scrolls from vendors, and my wizard kept learning new tricks.
