Sex speedrunning is again in Baldur’s Gate 3, because of Larian. 

Baldur’s Gate 3 Patch 4 rolled out final week, bringing over 1,000 fixes, changes and tweaks to Larian’s acclaimed RPG. While from most gamers’ perspective, it improved the game, these competing to romance party members as quickly as possible have been dismayed to search out that the patch made the process of getting laid a lot more drawn out by having Lae’zel up her requirements significantly. 

“For Lae’zel to decide to romance you, you no longer only need to gain high enough approval from her,” learn the patch notes on the official Baldur’s Gate 3 website. “You must also have proven yourself worthy through your actions.”

This change basically killed the intercourse speedrunning class, with instances just like the current record of 1 minute 58 seconds held by speedrunner Mae not attainable.

Now, it seems that Larian has heard the outcry from the neighborhood and has carried out a repair to avoid wasting intercourse speedrunning. In a video posted on YouTube, the aforementioned Mae explains that the developer launched a 5MB replace afterward November 2, the identical day as Patch 4 arrived.

According to the present Sex% champion, with no accompanying patch notes, the adjustments it caused went unnoticed till one other speedrunner weedmoder managed to seduce Lae’zel utilizing the identical technique as earlier than, that’s, with out having to finish the Druid Grove quest line.

While Mae acknowledges that the adjustments Larian made to romancing Lae’zel in Patch 4 “made sense for casual play” and that the character’s “immediate horniness was excessive”, they stated that reversing that is “a true testament to [the developer’s] willingness to listen to their community”.

Speaking of Lae’zel’s fondness for rolling within the hay, things got pretty awkward during Devora Wilde’s Baldur’s Gate 3 livestream, when the actor, who voices Lae’zel, ended up sleeping with none apart from the strict Githyanki Fighter. “I recorded these lines, and it feels like I’m listening to another character,” Wilde stated as she awkwardly watched the scene unfold.
