Author’s Trust

After countless battles and dialogue options, Shahzar considers Baldurs Gate 3 the closest thing to actual Dungeons and Dragons. He considers Warlocks one of the essential classes to have in your party if you want a complete experience. He also finds it equally important to pick the right feat for Warlock and to help players with that, he lists some of the best options below.

Ability Improvements 

The Ability Improvements is considered one of the best feats of the Warlock class. The player can increase any Ability with the amount of 2 using the feat.

On the other hand, you can also increase your two abilities by 1. The maximum number of amount for abilities is 20. You can unlock this Feature when they reach level 4.

With the help of this feat, the players can increase only one Ability up to 20. Plus, you will be able to increase spell damage and improve the effectiveness of your cantrips through this feat

Alert is also an incredible feat to use for any Warlock build. This feat allowed me to earn a +5 bonus whenever I was the one taking Initiative in Combat. So not only did I surprise the enemy, which stuns the enemy, but I was also able to hit harder.

You will unlock the Alert Feat when you reach level 4.

  • Using Alert, you can work like a Gloom Stalker or an Assassin.
  • It will help you attack your opponent faster before they can even react, which can benefit enemies with a high mobility rate.
  • Players should not pick this feat in Barbarian class as you get resistant to Surprise at level 7. 


The Charger is the Strongest feat where the player can use two abilities, Weapon Attack and Shove. You can unlock the Charger Feat when they reach level 4.

  • Also, players can use the Weapon attack and the Shove with the help of this feat and make their Warlock build more powerful.
  • The Attack Rolls can have a disadvantage when you can make the crossbow attacks in a fight, so use the Feat carefully with these weapons. 

Defensive Duelist 

Defensive Duelist is also one of the best feats of Warlock. With the help of Defensive Duelist, you can hold another finesse weapon and attack enemies.

The player can add the proficiency bonus to their Armor class, around +1. You can also unlock this feat by reaching level 4.

Elemental Adept 

Elemental Adept is one of the best Warlock Feats to unlock by reaching level 4. With the help of spells, it ignores Resistance to any damage types in battle and makes you immune to that specific element. 

  • Acid 
  • Cold 
  • Fire 
  • Lightning 
  • Thunder 
  • Heavily Armoured 

Heavily Armoured is a feat that increases the strength of the equipped heavy armor by 1. The class feature for the Heavily Armoured feat is Medium Armor Proficiency. The maximum Armor Proficiency the player will get from this feat is 20.

You can unlock the feat by reaching level 4. It is best for classes like Barbarian and Fighter. You can also utilize the feat in a robust Strength-focused Cleric build.

Lightly Armoured 

Lightly Armoured is a Feat that can be unlocked by reaching level 4. The best class feature for this feat of Warlock is Light Armor Proficiency.

The maximum Armor Proficiency players will get from the Lightly Armoured feat is 20. Moreover, you can increase the strength of the equipped Light armor by 1. 

Mage Slayer 

You can use it against an opponent in the battle within the melee range. Plus, Mage Slayer allows your character to gain an Advantage on Saving Throw when using the Feat.

I recommend using this feat if no other party member is good at taking on other magic users. 

  • Saving Throw Adventure 
  • Attack Caster 
  • Break Construction 

Spell Sniper 

Spell Sniper feat helps your character to land a Critical Hit when using spells against opponents. Also, it enables reducing the number required to land the Crit Hit to 1 when the Feat is used.

However, my favorite aspect of this feat is the new Cantrips that players can learn. These Cantrips were essential to my build, as they cast spells without using a spell slot.

The effects of Spell Sniper are:

  • Shocking Grasp 
  • Bone Chill 
  • Eldritch Blast 
  • Fire Bolt 
  • Ray of Frost 
  • Thorn Whip 

My Thoughts On Warlock Feats

According to my experience, Warlocks may be one of the most underrated classes in Baldurs Gate 3. Other magic users, such as Clerics and Wizards, often overlook Warlocks. However, from my time with the class, I believe that this class is far more powerful than people give it credit for.

The feats are a prime example of this class’s strength. Not only was I given some powerful spells in the form of Cantrips, which do not consume spell slots, but the passive bonuses are incredible. The Ability to gain Resistance to elemental damage or the Ability to deal critical damage every time are no small feats, literally.
