Changing your dice in Baldur’s Gate 3 can be done whenever you need to perform a skill check by rolling the d20 dice. This is the purple dice that appears where you must click it to roll and can add more bonuses to the outcome.

To change the color of your dice, click the settings icon in the bottom-left corner of your screen whenever the d20 dice appears. You will be able to select a new dice color, with some colors having additional flair like icons. To change dice using a controller, click the left thumbstick.

There are a few different dice skin options in Baldur’s Gate 3. These dice colors appear to be bonuses from purchasing different versions of the game. Reddit user Nightshad3ster notes the four different dice colors that are available:

  • Scuffed Metal: Base game
  • Dragonflame Red: Digital Collector’s Edition
  • Behir Blue: PC exclusive
  • Illithid Purple: Physical Collector’s Edition

There seems to be some general confusion about the Behir Blue skin, with some users thinking it’s for the Steam version while others think it’s just PC exclusive. Whether there are more dice colors and options available in-game remains to be seen. However, Larian Studios has been quite clear about there not being any microtransactions, so don’t expect to buy any skins anytime soon – maybe mods will become available?
