Baldur’s Gate 3 Three months after its release on PC, it continues to surprise everyone as players continue to find new interactions with their companions. A player recently managed to trigger a romantic cutscene with Lae’zel in a quest that made most of us cry.
The player’s romantic interaction with Lae’zel took place in the very first hours of BG3, more specifically during Owlbear Cave near Emerald Grove and Blighted Village. As soon as they killed the mother owlbear and the owlbear cub began eating the corpse, Lae’zel used all her charm regardless of what had just happened.
During my first BG3 While running, my group of friends and I also killed the mother owlbear and were devastated when the owlbear cub started eating the body. Luckily we didn’t have Lae’zel in our group because I wasn’t in the mood for romance.
While most players would agree that this wasn’t the best time for Lae’zel to take the initiative and romance our Tav, this is exactly the ruthless attitude I would expect from Lae’zel and I’m glad that this is a possibility – and so are our fellow human beings BG3 Player.
“I mean, that seems completely typical of Lae’zel,” one player said wrote on Reddit. “I mean, you guys just killed a huge beast together and you’re probably covered in blood and guts. I’m surprised she didn’t jump straight to your bones,” another player said added.
Since BG3 Larian Studios toned down the romance as many of the companions made unpleasant advances towards the players, which leads me to believe that this Lae’zel cutscene was intentionally left out.
This is by far the most bizarre romantic cutscene I’ve ever seen, and I’ve seen a lot over the course of my experience with it BG3. It almost makes me want to start a new run just to see it with my own eyes, but I’m sure I’ll cry if I leave the owlbear cub orphaned a second time.
