Continue to read more about the Choices Pending Bug in Baldur’s Gate 3 and How to fix it.
BG3 Choices Pending Bug: Causes
Players can encounter the Choices Pending while leveling up the characters, using additional spells, and multiclassing.
In this state, you will see the “Choices Pending” icon on the top right corner of the screen. You must complete all pending choices to continue playing the game.
However, this process can sometimes bug and prevent you from confirming your choices, a frustrating issue many players have encountered recently.
Moreover, players also face pending choice bugs while receiving bonus spells that may require various workarounds.
The bug often displays Pending Choices that should be made even if no red checkmarks are visible on the screen.
One common cause of this bug is that you have not selected all the required skills, proficiencies, or spells for your class. Sometimes, these choices are not shown on the left-hand side of the screen but on the center or the right.
Another possible cause of this bug is an installed mod that conflicts with the level-up system.
For example, some users reported that the “ELF UNLEASHED” mod caused this bug when responding to Astarion.

BG3 Choices Pending Bug: Fixes
Despite the bugs, you can still fix the issues and continue the gameplay in Baldurs Gate 3.
To fix “Choices Pending” bugs in the game, try clicking on the “Class” tab, reviewing spells and skills, or leveling up your character’s class.
Also, check the red checkmarks on the left side of the screen and select unmarked skills and spells.
You should also try turning off any mods you have and see if that fixes the problem. If not, you may have to start a new save without the mod.
If none of the above solutions work, you may have encountered a rare glitch that affects certain class combinations or levels.
For example, some users reported that going Ranger, Rogue, Ranger caused this bug, but going Ranger, Ranger, Rogue did not. You should try changing your class order or level sequence and see if that helps.
Moreover, if you are facing Level up Choices Pending issues, then you should track the following steps:
- Check the Level Up Menu for your character that provides you with multiple choices regarding skills, spells abilities, etc.
- Click on the “Skills” section from the Level up Menu. Then, a list of skills will appear on the sub-menu.
- Make the Selection from the list of skills for the character that you want for your character.
- After the Selection process, you can confirm the choices by clicking the “Confirm“ option.
- The “Choices Pending” status will be resolved, and you can easily level up the characters.
However, some of these bugs might appear due to coding problems. Sometimes, developers should fully resolve the code and designs.
