Though there's a limited selection right now, having one cool new dice skin is better than having only the default choice. There's every chance new die options will be added as DLC options, custom content options, through modding, or even as in-game rewards and achievements. Before we get ahead of ourselves, however, let's get down to business. Here's how to change your die skin.

How to change dice skin in Baldur's Gate 3

To change your dice skin in Baldur's Gate 3, you first need to face a roll. You can't change it through the options whenever you want. Instead, you need to find (or force) a die roll to find the button needed to make the change.

Once you're prompted to roll the dice, stop and look for a little button in the bottom left corner of the screen. Click it. From here, you'll be able to change your Baldur's Gate 3 dice skin.

Can you change die skins individually in Baldur's Gate 3?

Sadly, no. No matter whether you're rolling one, two, or ten die at once, you'll only be able to choose one dice skin that will apply to them all at the same time.

How do I get more dice skins in Baldur's Gate 3?

Because there seems to be some confusion over how and why some people have certain dice skins in-game, the method for getting more isn't clear.

Right now, they appear to be limited to purchases made with the same Larian account. For example, players with the Divinity: Original Sin games, Baldur's Gate games, or the collector's edition of Baldur's Gate 3 may gain access to a few different skins without warning. The game doesn't tell you which skin came from which purchase, so the logistics are a little up in the air right now.

Either way, there doesn't appear to be any in-game method to getting new die skins just yet. They may be offered as achievement rewards, quest rewards, or separate DLC down the line, but there's been no official confirmation just yet.
