Baldur’s Gate 3 is the latest triumph in the RPG genre. In true DnD fashion, the game offers a robust character creation feature. Players have been taking their time fine-tuning every aspect of their character’s appearance, from choosing their race and class to selecting from a limitless array of facial models. While it certainly enhances immersion from a role-playing perspective, things don’t always go as expected, and changes of heart happen.

If you regret your choices later down the line in this massive game, it begs the question “Can you change your character’s appearance in Baldur’s Gate 3?”. We’re here to answer that.

Can You Change Your Character’s Appearance in Baldur’s Gate 3?

Yes, you are able to change your character’s appearance in Baldur’s Gate 3. Larian has finally addressed players’ No.1 concern in the next big update for the game.

At long last, Patch 3 for Baldur’s Gate 3 is finally live after a short delay for further testing. Alongside bringing the full release to Mac and fixing performance issues in Act 3 across PC and console, it also adds the Magic Mirror, the long-awaited feature that will let fans modify their Tav’s appearance.

The Magic Mirror is tucked away at camp and will act as your personal barbershop. It will allow you to change your appearance whenever you’re craving a new look.

However, there are certain restrictions as to what can be altered. Apart from your looks, voice, pronouns and nether regions, you won’t be able to change your race and body type. Origin characters and full Ilithids, however, are totally out of the question.

In addition, if you’ve undergone permanent cosmetic changes thanks to gameplay choices, like letting Volo perform the eye surgery, there’s no magic mirroring out of that one.

If you still want full control over your looks in the middle of your journey, then there are a ton of Baldur’s Gate 3 mods out there. Alternatively, if you have the Digital Deluxe Edition of Baldur’s Gate 3, you can use the Mask of the Shapeshifter to cast Shapeshift and disguise as and equip traits of different races.
