Baldur’s Gate 3: Divine Intervention – How It Works

Baldur’s Gate 3 Divine Intervention - How It Works

There are some awesome Features in Baldur’s Gate 3 and Divine Intervention is one of the most popular. This is a really unique Feature that lets you invoke the aid of your god. It’s so special that you can only do it once per playthrough and never again. As soon as you’re a Level 10 Cleric, you can access this awesome Feature. You may have a few questions about Divine Intervention in Baldur’s Gate 3 before you use it without any regrets. It’s an important decision, so let’s discuss it!

What Is Divine Intervention in Baldur’s Gate 3?

Divine Intervention is a Feature in BG3 that’s unlocked at level 10 for all Clerics regardless of their subclass. It’s a Class Feature and is listed under the Action tab on your Skill bar instead of the Spells tab.

Once you use this Feature, you won’t be able to use it with your Cleric again. Of course, there are always various ways to approach things in BG3, and Divine intervention is no exception.

Players have realized that they can use this Feature more than once if they use it with different characters. This way, they can tap into the awesomeness of Divine Intervention way more than initially thought possible since every Cleric is able to ‘cast’ Divine Intervention. For this purpose, you can use Hirelings, level them up, and discard them later.

So, what exactly is Divine Intervention in Baldur’s Gate 3? It can be a few things, depending on what you choose to do. There are four ways you’re allowed to channel your chosen god’s power.

Divine Intervention Options in BG3

Here are all the skills/powers you can use with Divine Intervention in BG3, along with what they do:

  • Golden Generosity – This lets you spawn a chest that contains various Potions (uncommon rarity) and 48 camp supplies (food). 
  • Arm Thy Servant – You can call upon your god to give you a Legendary Weapon (one of the most popular options).
  • Sunder The Heretical – With this Feature, you can deal 8d10 Radiant damage to all enemies in a 15-foot radius. Your foes will have to succeed a Wisdom Saving Throw to take half damage.
  • Opulent Revival – This lets you revive all your fallen companions within an 18-meter radius. 

Closer Look at Divine Intervention in BG3

Let’s take a more detailed look at the various Divine Intervention options you can choose from in BG3:

Arm Thy Servant

When you choose Arm Thy Servant, you’ll get a unique Legendary weapon, the Devotee’s Mace. This mace deals 1d6+6 Bludgeoning damage as well as +1d8 Radiant damage. It also gives you the Healing Incense Aura Bonus Action.

When you activate this, you create a special nine-meter aura around you that will heal your character as well as nearby allies. You’ll heal 1d4 Health Points at the start of your character’s turn, and the aura lasts ten turns. Healing Incense Aura can be cast once per Long Rest and doesn’t require concentration.

Opulent Revival

Choosing Opulent Revival can turn the tide of even the toughest fight you encounter. You can bring companions back from the dead in the blink of an eye, which makes this ideal for the final showdown.

Your allies also benefit from a Long Rest, meaning they restore their Spell slots, Class Features, and Health Points. This can basically reset your companions, giving you a wonderful advantage in battle, especially when you’re unable to Go To Camp. But remember, it can only be used once, so use it wisely.

Sunder The Heretical

This option can almost ensure an instant win for your team. Since it harms your enemies for so much (8d10 Radiant damage) and can reach 15 meters, it’s like a holy bomb. Even if your enemies succeed their Wisdom Saving Throw, they still take half damage, which can be a game-changer.

If you find a fight that you just can’t seem to win, this will make things a lot easier. It’s only useable once, though, so make sure you’ve exhausted your other options.

Golden Generosity

Golden Generosity is possibly the least popular choice because it isn’t as impressive as the others. It’s still really cool and worth consideration. You’ll get a nice and rich bounty of 48 Camp Supplies and Potions, many of them being of Uncommon rarity.

Here are the Potions you get from the Golden Generosity Divine Intervention in BG3:

  • Elixir of Cloud Giant Strength
  • Supreme Elixir of Arcane Cultivation
  • 2 Potions of Superior Healing
  • Potion of Supreme Healing
  • Elixir of Barkskin
  • Potion of Speed
  • Elixir of Heroism
  • Remedial Potion
  • Potion of Invisibility

You can find Camp Supplies and Potions all over the areas you get to explore, so choosing one of the other Divine Intervention options typically feels like the better way to go. It’s your decision, though, so have fun with it!
