How to romance Lae'zel in Baldur's Gate 3

To romance Lae'zel in Baldur's Gate 3, you have to solidify a high approval rating from her before the refugee celebration, which will take place upon completing the Save the Refugees side-quest. We'll explain this in more detail below, but first let's explore how to increase Lae'zel's approval.

Lae'zel is all about force and bloodshed. She's a near-total opposite to Shadowheart, so it's no wonder these two don't get along. Lae'zel will hold you in high regard if you follow her domineering lead. She has no hesitation in confronting an issue head-on and using might to get what she desires, and if you want to be the object of her affection, you'll need to do the same.

Lae'zel's romance narrative is relatively easy to follow, as she tends to be up-front about her ideals and approaches.

Gain Lae'zel's approval by:

  • Making pro-Gith statements
  • Following her lead
  • Showing aggression
  • Demonstrating combat expertise
  • Exercising efficiency

You will lose Lae'zel's approval by:

  • Displaying non-violent tactics
  • Disagreeing with her
  • Making anti-Gith statements

The easiest way to gain insight into Lae'zel's way of thinking is to simply support her and go along with her ideas as the story progresses. This will generally involve finding other Gith and slaughtering enemies, even when other means would suffice. She'll respect you even more when you exhibit displays of power that feed on your enemies' weaknesses.

Because Lae'zel and Shadowheart are so diametrically opposed, they dislike one another. Pursuing one could have the impact of making the other jealous, so be careful how you approach them if you're juggling your romantic feelings for both.

Lae'zel romance: dialogue choices

In contrast to the flirtation styles of your other companions, Lae'zel's approach is very direct. If you have successfully earned her approval, you can romance her upon rescuing Halsin and completing the Save the Refugees quest. There will then be a refugee celebration at camp.

To successfully romance Lae'zel, make the following dialogue selections:

  • Are you… asking for sex?
  • Yes. I will share my bed with you tonight.

If you're eager to get down, need to return to a bedroll. You'll then have the option to invite her in for some boom-chicka-pow-pow. This will then lead to a NSFW scene featuring you and your Githyanki lover.

That's everything you'll need to know to romance Baldur's Gate 3's Lae'zel. If you'd rather go after a relationship with a slightly lower dose of aggression, you can also see our guides to romancing Gale, Wyll, and Shadowheart.
