Baldur’s Gate 3 Lae’zel Approval Guide

Looking for a warrior with high Martial Strength, then focus on recruiting Lae'zel and earn her high approval in Baldur's Gate 3 to finally romance her.

Like the rest of the companions in Baldur’s Gate 3, you can recruit Lae’zel and earn her approval by partaking in the acts she likes or approves of. Lae’zel is a Githyanki fighter whom you can recruit while escaping from Nautiloid in Act 1. Lae’zel has excellent martial strength skills and is adapted to using melee weapons and bows. 

When Lae’zel joins your side, you can complete her companion quest called “The Githyanki Warrior” to earn major approval from her. It will be up to you to make the right choices and get along with Lae’zel nature throughout your adventure. A high approval rating can get you to romance Lae’zel in Baldur’s Gate 3, while continuous disapproval from her makes her lose interest in you and doubt your loyalty to the party.

How to gain Lae’zel approval in BG3

Before we head into Lae’zel’s approval rating in Baldur’s Gate 3, we first need to understand her nature and what she likes and dislikes. Lae’zel is a headstrong person who dislikes anyone who doesn’t agree with Githyanki’s principles. Being a Githyanki warrior, Lae’zel absolutely adores violent and strong personalities. 

Lae’zel’s personality revolves around direct actions, cruelty, determination, and militarism. Below are the following choices that can get you high approval from Lae’zel in Baldur’s Gate 3.

Act 1 Lae’zel approval choices

  • When talking to Tiefling Zorru in Emerald Grove, make him kneel or bow. 
  • Let Lae’zel interrogate Zorru and commend her for being a good interrogator. 
  • Threat the Tiefling child, Mol, during your first encounter with him. 
  • Once you defeat all three goblin leaders, talk to Zevlor to earn Lae’zel’s approval in Baldur’s Gate 3. 
  • Attack Owlbear in her nest. 
  • Destroy Necromancy of Thay in the Blighted Village
  • Recruit Karlach from the risen road area of the game. 
  • Ignore party members’ warnings and drink from the well present outside Auntie Ethel’s house
  • Insult both Volo and Crusher inside the goblin camp
  • Refuse to kill Spaw when Glut asks you to in the Underdark
  • Let Lae’zel take charge inside Creche Y’llek and disclose the mysterious Artefact to the entrance guard. 
  • Hand over the mysterious Artefact to Kith’rak Therezzyn, leader of Creche Y’llek. 
  • Kneel to Vlaakith and enter the mysterious artefact. 
  • Reassure Lae’zel that you will look for a cure for the mind-flayer parasite inside your brain. 
  • Talk to Lae’zel about her past and commend her on killing her classmates. 
  • Accept Lae’zel’s romantic advances and spend a steamy night with her to earn her approval in Baldur’s Gate 3. 

Act 2 Lae’zel approval choices

What not to do if you want Lae’zel’s approval

Lae’zel, on the other hand, hates anything that contradicts her culture. She is not a fan of compassion and will not be pleased with any action of kindness.

Here are the following acts that will net you Lae’zel disapproval in Baldur’s Gate 3: 

  • Refuse to loot the Selunite chest inside the Owlbear nest.
  • Don’t let Lae’zel hurt Zorru. This will upset her, and you will end up losing a lot of Lae’zel approval in Baldur’s Gate 3. 
  • Free Sazza, the captured goblin, and let her go from the Druid Grove. 
  • Allow Fezzerk to extort you inside Blighted Village. 
  • When talking to Minthara, persuade her not to kill Sazza. 
  • Find the Githyanki egg inside Creche Y’llek and destroy it. 
  • Make fun of Creche Y’llek and their library at the camp. 
  • Refuse Lae’zel’s advances and make fun of her. 
  • Talk to His Majesty at Last Light Inn using the Talk to Animals spell and try to flatter him. 

Impact of approval on Lae’zel’s romance 

The more approval you get, the better your chances to romance Lae’zel in Baldur’s Gate 3. You can romance Lae’zel as early as Act 1 if your approval meter hits the green. In case the approval bar for Lae’zel is missing, don’t worry. This is a minor bug that doesn’t affect your approval progress. Update your game to the latest patch or restart the game to fix this GUI bug.
