How to romance Karlach in Baldur’s Gate 3

After gaining Karlach’s approval in BG3, you must side with her people in the ‘Save the Refugees‘ quest to increase your chances of romance with her. This also involves you siding against the goblins hence losing your opportunity to romance Minthara.

As you know, Karlach is cursed with the eternal fire burning inside her; it will be almost impossible for you to get close to her. You will need an ‘Infernal Iron‘ to let you come close to her. To get the relationship going, you will need many of those, so keep that in mind.

You can find them in the Gauntlet of Shar dungeon and the Shadow-Cursed lands. Not just the Infernal Irons, you will also need to use spells that protect her from overheating. This will let you share a kiss with her.

To sleep with her, you must take an Infernal Iron to Last Light Inn during Act II, which the blacksmith will mold until Karlach is fixed permanently. After doing this, go for a long rest at the camp, and with Karlach in your bed, the romantic scene will trigger in Baldur’s Gate 3.

Another important aspect of your relationship with Karlach is ensuring that Dammon is kept alive, as he will guide your relationship with her every step of the way.
