How to use Inspiration Points in Baldur’s Gate 3
Inspiration Points are used to reroll checks and saves in Baldur’s Gate 3. When you fail a check, you will see the option to reroll at the cost of one Inspiration Point. This option only appears after you fail a check and if you have an Inspiration Point to use. If you don’t you will simply fail the check and be forced to face the consequences.
Because of this, you should hold onto as many Inspiration Points as possible for when you really need them. Use them when you need to make a difficult check and don’t waste them on something simple.
