    Larian Studios released a large post detailing many of the choices players have made throughout their early journey in Baldur’s Gate 3.

    1. Half-Elf
    2. Human
    3. Elf
    4. Dragonborn
    5. Tiefling
    6. Drow
    7. Half-Orc
    8. Dwarf
    9. Gnome
    10. Halfling
    11. Githyanki

    Half-Elf, closely followed by Human and Elf, were the most popular choices for race in Baldur’s Gate 3. As someone playing a Half-Elf, I see the appeal of these three races. What surprised me was Githyanki’s and Drow’s low spot on this list. Both races are not commonly playable in other Dungeons & Dragons games, so I expected both to be a popular choice in BG3.

That said, I’ve had a blast with my Half-Elf Paladin Bard and just being a good boy throughout my playthrough.
