Paladin is one of the strongest classes in Baldur’s Gate 3, mostly in part due to the various abilities you receive as a part of your subclass. Your subclass sees you take an oath, which will determine how your Paladin acts to certain situations and makes up a majority of your background. However, just because you took an oath doesn’t mean you need to follow it. If you want to break free from the path of your oath, then you can become an Oathbreaker Paladin.
Choosing to take this route will cause you to lose any abilities associated with your oath, but will open your character to new abilities and dialogue options. You can see exactly how to break your oath as a Paladin in Baldur’s Gate 3 by reading the guide below.
Becoming an Oathbreaker Paladin
First and foremost, choosing to break your oath in Baldur’s Gate 3 does not mean that you are making your Paladin an evil character. While you can, of course, take that route if you want, an Oathbreaker Paladin simply wants to veer away from their original oath to follow a new set of rules for themselves.
You might come across a scenario in Baldur’s Gate 3 that requires you to make a decision between what’s right and what your oath tells you to do. If you want to follow what’s right, then this will lead you to become an Oathbreaker Paladin. These situations can be difficult to find by yourself, though, so we have laid out all of the ways you can break your oath below.
Although, each subclass requires different actions to become an Oathbreaker Paladin, the most common way to do so is by choosing the dialogue option that says “I choose not to take an oath.” This will cause you to lose all of the abilities associated with your subclass, but it will also open up dialogue options that were not available to you before.
There are a few other ways to become an Oathbreaker Paladin, but they are a bit more difficult to accomplish. For example, you can choose to break your oath by dying, by leaving your party, or by refusing to help someone in a time of need.
