This guide will walk you through the steps to win Halsin’s heart, from the early stages of the game to the more intimate moments in Act III. Whether you’re a seasoned player or a newcomer, this guide will help you understand the nuances of building a relationship with Halsin even if you’re already in a relationship with other characters.
How to Romance Halsin in Baldur’s Gate 3
Meeting Halsin in Act I: Halsin’s journey with you begins at the Druid Grove. He’s been captured by goblins, and it’s up to you to free him. Once you rescue him, he can assist you in raiding the goblin camp. If you manage to defeat the goblin leaders before releasing him, he’ll head back to the Druid Grove and offer his help. To increase your chances of romancing Halsin, it’s essential to assist both the Druids and the Tieflings and ensure the goblins, led by Minthara, are defeated. After these events, Halsin will share information about the Moonrise Towers. Although he’ll be around, he won’t officially join your team yet. However, you can start flirting with him, and if you try to get closer during the night of celebrations, he’ll decline but won’t completely push you away.
Deepening the Bond in Act II: Act II brings more opportunities to get closer to Halsin. The key location here is the Last Light Inn. It’s crucial to ensure the inn remains intact, especially if you’re playing as The Dark Urge. At the inn, you’ll meet the “Sleeping man.” After talking to him, Halsin will give you a quest to find a child named Thaniel. This quest is challenging, as you’ll need to protect Halsin while he travels between dimensions. Once you complete this quest, Halsin will officially join your party. Continue to engage with him, ask about his past, and show genuine interest in his stories.
The Intimate Moments of Act III: By Act III, if you’ve built enough rapport with Halsin, you’ll have the chance for a more intimate connection. When you see an exclamation point over his head at the camp, approach him. During the conversation, he’ll hint at his past relationships. If you’ve been patient and understanding, he’ll confess his feelings. If you’re already in a relationship with another character, Halsin will be open to sharing. However, you’ll need to discuss this with your current partner. Some characters, like Astarion, Karlach, and Shadowheart, are open to the idea. Once everything is settled, you’ll experience a unique love scene with Halsin, where he might transform into a bear. It’s up to you how you want to proceed, but remember, it’s all about mutual respect and understanding.
How To Romance Halsin If You Are In A Relationship
- Halsin’s Open-mindedness: Unlike other characters, Halsin has a more open-minded view of relationships. When you express interest in him, he’ll reveal that he’s happy to share and doesn’t see romance as a strictly exclusive endeavor.
- Initiating the Conversation: As you progress in Act 3, after reaching Wyrm’s Crossing, take some time to rest at your camp. This will trigger various cutscenes. Soon, you’ll be informed that someone wishes to speak with you. If it’s Halsin, approach him and choose the following dialogue options:
- “What are you saying exactly?”
- “I’d be lying if I said I wasn’t interested – but I’m already in a relationship.”
- “You just want to share? What do you mean?”
- Discussing with Your Current Lover: Before diving headfirst into a new romantic endeavor, it’s essential to communicate with your current partner. Depending on who you’re with, the conversation will vary. For instance, if you’re with Shadowheart, you might say:
- “I wanted to talk to you about us, and exclusivity in our relationship.””He’s open-minded and willing to share… as long as you are.”
- Returning to Halsin: Once you’ve had the conversation with your current lover and they’re on board with the idea, return to Halsin. Inform him of their decision, and if all goes well, you’ll be on your way to experiencing a unique romantic scene with the druid.
And that’s it! That’s all you need to know to romance Halsin in Baldur’s Gate 3.
