I’m now 200+ hours deep in Baldur’s Gate 3 and midway through my third run, a massive time sink I have decided to blame on a teenager-strength crush on Astarion and the slightly more sensible desire to really sink my teeth into the magnificent battle system. I want to fully understand it. I want to wear the shiny “Critical Hit” achievement from clearing the game on its hardest difficulty like a badge of honour. I want to set someone who isn’t on my side on fire for once.

More desperate than a horny Bhaalspawn to keep playing, I knew what I had to do: start my third run on Tactician, Baldur’s Gate 3’s hardest difficulty.
