Baldur’s Gate 3 Lae’zel Companion Guide

Looking for a ferocious fighter who has nothing to do with Kindness, then you can opt for Lae'zel, who has a Violent combat style and great strength in Baldur's Gate 3

Lae’zel is a Githyanki warrior in Baldur’s Gate 3 who fulfills the much-needed role of a ferocious fighter in your party. She has a violent combat style with great strength and an excellent constitution. You can meet Lae’zel straight out of the prologue, and she can be the earliest member of your party. She has been voiced by none other than Devora Wilde. 

Although it might seem like she is on a mean streak due to her dialogues, you can eventually gain her approval and romance her. Lae’zel’s focus is only on one thing, which is finding a cure for the mind-flayer tadpole. Due to this common incentive, she can be a great asset.

Where to find Lae’zel in Baldur’s Gate 3

Recruiting Lae’zel in BG3 is like recruiting all companions, and you can do it quickly. Like you, she will also be on the Nautiloid ship during the prologue and will assist you in stopping it. You can look for her after the prologue ends and the ship crashes. 

She is kidnapped by two Tieflings just near the crash site at the Ravaged Beach and is put into a cage. You can go up to them and intimidate them into freeing Lae’zel. Once you do that, she will be thankful, and you can recruit her into your party.

How to raise Lae’zel’s approval rating

Lae’zel has a ferocious personality, so you can gain Lae’zel’s approval by being direct and ruthless in BG3. She wants to find the cure; she will reject all side quests, and you should do the same to gain her approval. 

Lae’zel is not a kind companion; you can get on her good side by insulting others whenever possible. Lastly, you need to side with the Githyanki and go against Shadowheart to rapidly increase your approval with Lae’zel.

How to romance Lae’zel in BG3

To romance Lae’zel, you need to get high approval from her and then go through the Druid Grove Storyline, in which you will have to make confident choices that align with her. These choices include rescuing Druid Halsin, who is held captive at the Goblin camp, and helping him save the Emerald Grove. 

You will also have to save other refugees trapped inside the camp, which is all you need to romance Lae’zel in BG3. This will trigger a camp celebration where you can converse with Lae’zel and drive the conversation toward going to bed with her.

Lae’zel Companion quest

Lae’zel’s companion quest is ‘The Githyanki Warrior’ in Baldur’s Gate 3. The first step of this quest is to rescue Lae’zel from the Tiefling pair and add her to your party. 

Once she is at your party, she will ask you to help her look for Zorru, who has information about the cure she has been looking for. You can find Zorru in Druid Grove and then interrogate him. He will reveal that you need to go to the Githyanki Creche for the cure, so that is where you are headed next. 

The Githyanki Creche contains a specialized machine in the Rosymorn Monastery’s basement. This machine is meant to be the cure, and you will have to try it. It will fail, and then you will be led to a boss fight, after which the quest is finished.
