How to Install Mods in BG3

Modding BG3 can be a daunting task at first, but it’s easier than you think. First things first, you’ll need to download a few essential mods first. Make sure to follow the instructions for each:

Make sure to place all of these manually without the use of a mod manager. Once you have the first three essential mods loaded in, then you can use a mod manager to load other mods. We recommend using the website Nexus Mods to download and install mods. Make sure the mods are updated to the current game version before using any of them.
