Baldur's Gate 3 PS5 PlayStation

Approachable to newcomers and almost endlessly engaging for die-hards, Baldur's Gate 3 offers various difficulty options, but there will always be those who crave more. Honour Mode is there if you want your save file deleted when you die, but streamer Luality has taken things to another level entirely.

In addition to the restrictions in place while playing on Honour Mode, Luality played with a few self-imposed extra house rules: no companions, no buying or selling (or stealing) from NPCs, no talking to Withers (so no redistributing skills or hirelings), and perhaps most shocking of all, no long rests. When asked how she restores her spell slots, the streamer said: "We don't."

Luality appears to be using that most powerful of all fantasy RPG builds: the stealth sniper. Honed to a razor edge, the streamer uses a mind-boggling combination of action point abuse and special ammunition (like Arrows of Many Targeting), stringing together endless critical chains to break some of the game's toughest boss encounters in a single turn.

Does this feat of statistical dominance inspire you to fire up a fresh BG3 character? Are there any house rules you like to use when playing RPGs? Let us know in the comments section below.
