One Baldur’s Gate 3 player discovered a clever trick that allows them to keep Karlach and Wyll in their party. Baldur’s Gate 3 puts vital importance on companions that have their own unique stories, personalities, and attributes. As players progress through the Baldur’s Gate 3 campaign, they will recruit these characters to utilize their defensive and offensive capabilities. Companions aid players in combat and exploration, giving them permanent access to a set of powerful spells.
Beating Baldur’s Gate 3 with no companions can be fairly difficult, as players will be left alone in a catastrophic world filled with formidable enemies. There are a total of ten companions in Baldur’s Gate 3, with whom players can build an optimized team to complete every act without issues. They level up with players to match their power and belong to a different class. For example, Asterion is a high-elf rogue who can perform sneak attacks during combat. Apart from his interesting story, he possesses a well-rounded set of skills, which includes Acrobatics, Sleight of Hand, Deception, Stealth, and Perception.
A Baldur’s Gate 3 player known as Thor_HS on Reddit shared a trick that allows them to keep Karlach and Wyll in their party after raiding the Emerald Grove. In normal circumstances, players lose both companions when they attack the thieflings. However, it’s possible to save the party by recruiting Karlach and Wyll, killing both characters in camp, and reviving them after raiding the Emerald Grove. According to the original poster, they will ask what happened in the grove and then remain in the party when all is said and done. It’s important to note that this is a glitch that Larian Studios will probably fix in a future update.
Fellow Baldur’s Gate 3 players in the comments claimed that this is a chance to get Minthara without having to worry about their party. However, some also pointed out that the glitch didn’t work for them, so it’s unclear if this is always successful.
Karlach in Baldur’s Gate 3 is a devil-like Tiefling warrior who can be found to the north of the Blighted Village. She is one of the best characters players can recruit to their party, as her base stats lean toward strength. Players can always romance Karlach if her approval is high enough.
Wyll is a human companion who will join players before their fight against goblins in the Druid Grove area. Those who want to romance the character can increase his approval by completing The Blade of Frontiers companion quest and supporting many of his decisions. Depending on the subclass they choose for Wyll, players will gain access to powerful skills focused on support, utility, and damage.
Baldur’s Gate 3 is available now for PC and PS5 with Xbox Series X/S versions also in development.
