(BG3) Baldur’s Gate III – Gale Character Approval / Disapproval List

Baldur's Gate 3 - Character Companion Dialogue Compilations / Easter Eggs

Another (BG3) Baldur’s Gate III page and this time focusing on the character of Gale.

This page will list all of the possible Approval and Disapproval condition and dialogues.

Allowing you to either become Gale’s best friend or his, well simply put, one of his enemies, I guess..

Each dialogue you get to select and choose from can often result in either of your companions being a fan of your decision (Approval) or disliking your choice (Disapproval)

We have also decided to list the areas in which these dialogues occur too, to hopefully makes things more easier.

You can find a Disapproval/Approval list for the character Astarion, here
