Baldur’s Gate 3 is at the moment accessible now on Steam as an Early Access title and regardless that it is simply the primary act of the sport (about 25-30 hours value of gametime), it is sufficient to get to know a few of the droolworthy companions. While nobody can clearly examine to our sassy Astarion, right here is each Baldur’s Gate 3 companion thus far!
Astarion | Rogue
Astarion is sassy and might be my favourite companion thus far. You’ll have the ability to meet him after assembly Shadowheart as he hides from a monster. Take him down, and this cheeky vampire will have the ability to be part of your get together.
He’s very flirty and being a rogue is a really priceless get together member to have. He’s sneaky, he robust, and he is nice when wanting a tactical benefit. He’s additionally very charming with that charisma, so if it’s essential candy discuss your method out of a pickle, he is your man. Vampire. Whatever.
Shadowheart | Cleric
Shadowheart is a really shut second and actually the companion that I went in considering I’d romance (that is nonetheless a definite chance, however boy is Astarion lookin’ good). She’s difficult and she or he provides off main Morrigan from the Dragon Age collection vibes.
When you first meet her, she comes off as very judgemental and she or he actually will not such as you. Eager to get away from you, she ultimately comes round in case you play your playing cards proper. Unlike Astarion and a few of the different companions, she actually has no time for nonsense and she or he likes to remain targeted. Her Morrigan-like character makes her a real deal with with regards to banter, and makes turning into her pal all of the extra rewarding.
You’ll meet her shortly after the intro cinematic after taking management of the helm.
Gale | Wizard
Gale is a personality that’s going to be divisive locally. To me, he is the Blackwall (Dragon Age Inquisition) of Baldur’s Gate. To me, if he provides off a critical M’lady vibe and the niceness he has simply has a bizarre edge to it that seems like he’s hiding a pretty big quantity of skeletons in his closet.
He’s additionally a horrible flirt, which you may witness when he tries to put these strikes on Shadowheart.
He is a Wizard although that focuses on Evocation, which makes him highly effective. He’s very heavy on the offensive injury wanted in battle and his magic is useful in a plethora of how. He’s useful, if not punch-worthy.
You’ll meet this fella after the primary struggle with Shadowheart.
Wyll | Warlock
Wyll is a sweetpea and a strong warlock. He’s affected person, he is variety, and he is humble; even all through his coaching of a youthful Tiefling whenever you first meet him.
He’s pretty much as good with a spell as he’s along with his sword, however he does come wrapped up in a demonic bundle because of his magic-intuned nature.
Tip? Don’t preserve him in your get together in case you plan on taking part in a chaotic recreation. He’s very tied to his morals, so he will likely be a type of companions that it’s important to be strategic round when interacting via the story’s development.
You’ll discover him in a camp the place he’s coaching his underling.
Lae’Zel | Fighter
Lae’Zel is definitely the primary companion you may meet through the opening sequence of the sport, however she truly does not be part of your get together till later. You’ll have the ability to add her to your staff after assembly Gale, you may discover her dangling in a cage.
She’s an excellent fighter that packs a imply punch, however she’s not the perfect in case you’re searching for ranged assaults (for apparent causes) exterior of her Mage Hand potential. That being stated, she has critical injury potential, so she’s nice for close-quarters fight.
Like Shadowheart, she’s no nonsense and she or he’ll just about assume you are a moron till confirmed in another way.
That’s all of the companions that we all know of thus far in Baldur’s Gate 3. Interested in studying extra? The recreation itself is accessible now as an Early Access title on Steam, however you possibly can be taught extra about romance and character creation from our earlier protection, in addition to our recreation hub right here.
