Shadowheart Best Feats in BG3

There are a few feats that can enhance Shadowheart's abilities or increase her AC or health to keep her in the fight. Here are the best feats for Shadowheart in Baldur's Gate 3.

Ability Score ImprovementYou increase one Ability by 2, or two Abilities by 1, to a maximum of 20.
LuckyYou gain 3 Luck Points, which you can use to gain Advantage on Attack Rolls, Ability Checks, or Saving Throws, or to make an enemy reroll their Attack Rolls.
ResilientYou increase an Ability by 1, to a maximum of 20, and gain Proficiency in that Ability's Saving Throws.
ToughYour hit point maximum increases by 2 for every level you have gained.
War CasterYou gain Advantage on Saving Throws to maintain Concentration on a spell.
You can also use a reaction to cast Shocking Grasp at a target moving out of melee range.
Heavily ArmouredYou gain Armour Proficiency with Heavy Armour, and your Strength increases by 1, to a maximum of 20.
MobileYour movement speed increases, and difficult terrain doesn't slow you down when you Dash. If you move after making a melee attack, you don't provoke Opportunity Attacks from your target.

The feats that are best for Shadowheart boost her support abilities and can make her harder to hit and take down. Of course, this all still depends on how you want to build Shadowheart, but if you are sticking to her being a support Trickery Cleric, these feats will help her in combat.

Lucky can help Shadowheart maintain important Concentration Spells by re-rolling saving throws. Resilient can also help with those spells if you decide to increase your Constitution, as it is the ability score used for maintaining Concentration.

Tough and Heavily Armoured can make Shadowheart a little more tanky, which can be important since you do not want your support and healer to go down. War Caster is a nice option for a feat, as it will also help Shadowheart keep Concentration and allows her to use Shocking Grasp as a reaction instead of a melee attack.

Mobile may seem weird for Shadowheart, but it pairs well with Spirit Guardians. Spirit Guardians trigger when an enemy enters the spell radius for the first time, so having more movement speed allows you to reach more enemies. So the Mobile feat is more niche, but it can make one of the best Cleric spells more deadly.

The Ability Score Improvement is always a great option to boost Shadowheart's Wisdom, Constitution, or even her Strength or Dexterity. Higher Wisdom will help Shadowheart with spellcasting ability and important checks like Perception and Survival. A Constitution upgrade helps Shadowheart gain health and maintain Concentration, which is very important. Strength or Dexterity upgrades are not as important but can help Shadowheart with melee ability, Initiative, and checks.
