Are you ready to embrace the unknown and become the ultimate evil in Baldur’s Gate 3? As the game launches, developers reveal an exciting new character class, piquing the interest of fans and gamers alike. Buckle up, as we take you on a journey through this hidden class known as “Illithid Powers.”
Illithid Powers Class Overview: Embrace the Power or Reject the Corruption?
Imagine being infested by a mind-warping tadpole, Illithid, which gnaws its way into your brain. While your main quest prompts you to eliminate this intruder, the developers provide you with a choice: to surrender to the corruption or fight against it. Choosing to embrace it unlocks a hidden branch in your skill tree, the “Illithid Powers.” But beware! This transformation comes with a price: your body turns into a parasite.

The Transformation Process: Finding and Ingesting the Tadpoles
Transforming into an Illithid is quite straightforward in Baldur’s Gate 3. All you need to do is locate tadpoles scattered across various zones, in jars, pools, and corpses, and consume them. Each ingested parasite corresponds to a specific power within the skill tree, consisting of 25 abilities. From manipulation to health restoration and psionics, these powers can inflict immense damage and torment enemies, weakening them over time.
Pros and Cons of Transformation: A Delicate Balance of Power and Risk
Adopting the Illithid Powers class allows you to control those around you, even transforming into monstrous creatures like the shadowy, six-legged panther-like beast from Dungeons and Dragons. However, such a transformation may cause problems in your relationships and alter how your friends perceive you. The developers have also hinted that your adventure might become a bit more complicated. It’s up to you to discover how!
