Basic stats and race abilities

After leaving early access, BG3 abandoned the mechanic of adding bonuses to stats depending on race. From now on, every player can choose a +1 and +2 bonus to any stat, regardless of race. This means that choosing a race will mainly influence the appearance of your character and the presence of appropriate race abilities.

Base race speed: The distance you can travel each turn is 9 meters.

Martial Prodigy

The intense training that members of this race undergo from a young age ensures that Githyanki are excellent at handling weapons and armor.

Githyanki are skilled with swords (short, long, and two-handed) and can wear light to medium armor.

Astral Knowledge

Astral Knowledge allows a Githyanki to gain proficiency in any skill tied to a specific ability.

The action's effect can only be used once and regenerates after a long rest.

Githyanki Psionics

The psionic abilities of this race enable its representatives to use effects identical to the following spells:

At level 1, Githyanki gains the ability to cast Mage Hand. The phantom limb enables you to control and manipulate objects from a long distance (up to 18 meters).

At level 3, Psionics unlocks the ability to use the Jump spell. Magical acrobatics enables the user to move up by to 22.5 meters.

At level 5, a Githyanki learns the Misty Step spell, which enables the user to teleport to a visible location.

All of Githyanki psionic spells can be used once per long rest.

Best class for a Githyanki

A wide range of proficiencies and access to useful psionic spells on the battlefield make Githyanki the ideal material for a hero standing on the front line. The Fighter, Barbarian or Paladin classes are perfect for this race.

An interesting option may also be a hybrid of a warrior and a spellcaster, such as the Warlock.
