What are Lightning Charges and How to Use Them - Baldur's Gate 3 Guide

Lightning Bolts are a powerful elemental force found in certain weapons and armor in Baldur’s Gate 3. In this guide, we’ll detail where to find these powerful items.

Think of Lightning Charges as a modifier that buffs your gear or gives them a unique passive effect. Using a weapon imbued with this power will add +1 to your attack rolls and an additional +1 to lightning damage, allowing you to increase your combat power and deal shocking electrical damage to multiple enemies at once if, for example, they are standing in water.
