Jack of All Trades is one of the rarest Baldur’s Gate 3 achievements on Steam, and likely on console as well. The achievement tasks you with multiclassing a character into every class without asking Withers to change their class. This sounds like a headache, but it doesn’t have to be as big of a pain as it seems. In this guide we’ll go over how to get the Jack of All Trades achievement the easy way in Baldur’s Gate 3.

How to Get the Jack of All Trades Achievement Easily in Baldur’s Gate 3

The easiest way to handle this achievement isn’t by cheating, nor is it by actually multiclassing one of your companions into a sort of abomination. Instead, you’ll be making good use of a feature that almost no one uses: Hirelings.

The one caveat to this method is it can’t be done until you reach level 12. Once you reach level 12, you can take care of it at your camp for a nominal fee of only 100 Gold at Withers for the recruitment.

Make space in your party by telling one of your party members to stay at camp, then talk to Withers to recruit a Hireling. Any Hireling will do, since they all start at level one by default and then must be manually leveled up once they’re in your party.

Head into the Level Up screen for the Hireling, and give it a different class for each level all the way up to Level 12. You don’t need to worry about which subclasses, spells, cantrips, or feats to choose along the way; all that matters is this Hireling gets a single level in every class.

Once you’ve gone through the motions and finally gotten the Hireling to level 12, with one level in each class, you should get a notification stating you’ve gotten this very rare achievement. Then, of course, you can dismiss the Hireling and go back about your business. I’ve only confirmed this works on PC using the Steam version of the game, but it should work just as well on console. Otherwise, Jack of All Trades would be a nightmare to get.

And with that, you know how to get the Jack of All Trades achievement for Baldur’s Gate 3 without much fuss. The idea of having a character spec a single level per class throughout the course of the game makes my skin crawl.
