Baldur’s Gate 3 fans feel that there are plenty of NPCs that Larian Studios could add without disturbing the original storyline. Here’s what the BG3 community has been talking about.

Baldur’s Gate 3 is known for having a long list of minor characters that have unexpectedly captured fans’ hearts. As with Halsin, the companion Druid that was introduced to the game after loads of players’ requests, there are some that users would like to see more often during their adventure through Faerun.

While there isn’t much chance of Larian Studios adding any extra characters as companions in the next updates, the Baldur’s Gate 3 community rallied in a Reddit post called “What side character do you wish would’ve been a companion?,” and compared notes about their favorite NPCs.

Besides Alfira, the bard Tiefling that appears during the first act, and it’s a staple of these debates, others claimed that the game needed more companions from the “smaller races”: “So Barcus would be great, maybe with Hope and/or her sister in Act 3,” commented a player.

Another player pointed out that even if Larian Studios didn’t add any companions, there was always the possibility of asking for more “camp-only” companions, such as Scratch, the Owlbear, Grub, and Yenna. Most fans agreed and thought that they’d also like to see some vendors stationed in the camp, which could also give side-quests while following around the main character.

Some thought that there were enough “good-aligned” companions during Baldur’s Gate 3 storyline, and that players could enjoy having more evil characters among their party. They said that NPCs such as Disciple Z’Rell, Roah Moonglow, True Soul Nere, and even Kagha, would make excellent additions to the narrative.

“Honestly I have Dammon in mind. We have Halsin representing the Druids and Minthara from the Absolute side. The Tiefling fraction could also have someone. Dammon’s class could be a Fighter or an Artificer. He could make use of the ingots we get,” read another comment.

And that’s everything about which NPCs would work best as companions according Baldur’s Gate 3 players. If you want to know more about the game, check what is the hidden identity of the Iron Throne’s saboteur, and how to get “The Blood of Lathander” legendary mace.
