How to Talk to Animals in Baldur’s Gate 3

In Baldur’s Gate 3, there are three different ways to communicate with animals.

By Using ‘Speak With Animals’ Spell:

The ‘Speak With Animals’ spell is a level 1 ritual spell earned by the following classes during level up. This spell, once cast, will remain in effect until the next long rest.

  • Druid
  • Barbarian (Wildheart Subclass)
  • Bard (College of Lore & College of Valour Subclasses)
  • Paladin (Oath of the Ancients Subclass)
  • Ranger
  • Warlock

This spell is at level 1, thus it’s available to you when you make your main character. Even if you don’t, you’ll be able to learn the spell at each subsequent level. ‘Speak With Animals’ is an Eldritch Invocation available to Warlocks who spend a spell slot on Beast Speech.

One of the playable races in Baldur’s Gate 3: Forest Gnomes has the racial ability to Speak With Animals. Since the ability to cast “Speak With Animals” is a component of the Forest Gnome race, even if your character is a Rogue or Fighter, two classes that don’t normally have access to it, he or she will have it nevertheless.

Drink the Potion of Animal Speaking:

If you consume the Potion of Animal Speaking, you will be under the influence of the “Speak With Animals” enchantment. The effects of the potion, like those of the spell, last for a whole day. This elixir can be obtained in three different methods.

If you use Wild Shape to change your appearance, you can approach any animal and strike up a discussion with it. If you choose this, you can instead rely on your Druid class feature instead of expending a spell slot to gain access to Speak With Animals.
