More and more Baldur’s Gate 3 players are discovering new secrets in the game as one player has found out a way to recruit Lae’zel right at the beginning.

Baldur’s Gate 3 has been one of the biggest releases in recent times due to its immense focus on branching storylines and intricate character design. With more and more players getting into the title every day, new secrets are being discovered even after months since release.

Lae’zel has been one of the most popular companions in Baldur’s Gate 3 and is one of the first companions that players can recruit in the game. However, one player has found a way to make her the first recruitment, besides Shadowheart if players decide to save her, even before leaving the Nautiloid.

Reddit user ‘Spot_Responsible’ posted about this in the Baldur’s Gate 3 subreddit as they said: “Just found out a new way to recruit Lae’zel” claiming that it was possible to get her right at the beginning of the game.

“If Lae’zel dies on the nautiloid her body will be right in front of you after the crash. You can then revive her with a scroll and recruit her,” the OP continued. As it is the very beginning of the game, many did not face many problems in clearing out the abominations and getting through the crash without deaths.

If players decide to save Shadowheart, she naturally becomes their first recruitment in Baldur’s Gate 3. With this discovery, players can include Lae’zel too in that list. “Considering how often people struggle with the intellect devourers, having that 3rd party member for them can help a lot tbh,” said a player about the fight right after unlocking the first Waypoint.

Some players even went ahead and called this method a “game changer” as it would help many Honor Mode runs right at the beginning. “I did this by accident but was so happy because I was worried dealing with her captors would break my oath,” said a Paladin main as well.

“I forgot about that, it’s hella useful!” added another player as they were impressed by the OP’s find as well, while others were happy that they could reunite with their favorite companion sooner in Baldur’s Gate 3.
