Should You Enable Karmic Dice?

Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ) | Baldur's Gate 3 (BG3)|Game8 (5)

It's recommended to turn off the Karmic Dice setting and rely on the odds of your rolls without any added influence.

While Karmic Dice intend to balance out good and bad rolls, it can also prove to be disadvantageous in combat should you have good rolls consecutively, as it will attempt to level the playing field by giving you just as many bad rolls.
