BG2 FAQ

 

Q. Does Valerie know if I befriended her in BG1 or not?

 

A. When you meet Valerie, you'll have several options for how to greet her: as a friend, as a jilted maybe-girlfriend (if you meet her romance requirements bar reputation), as a brief acquaintance, or as a total stranger. The first two options set Valerie to having been your friend in BG1 and assume she was present for the events of that game. The latter two set Valerie to being new to the adventure.

 

Q. What are Valerie's romance requirements?

 

A. Be a female human, half-elf, half-orc, elf, or dwarf of non-evil alignment, a minimum of 12 reputation, and cannot be a wild mage. 

 

Q. What are Valerie's friendship requirements?

 

A. None.

 

Q. Why is a Cowled Wizard willing to join forces with Charname?

 

A. Valerie has very little faith in Athkatla's abilities to keep Amn's darker elements under control. And she had nothing to do with Imoen's arrest.

 

Q. Any special restrictions on recruiting/keeping Valerie?

 

A. Valerie will intervene during the Thieves' Guild questline when Edwin sends you to murder a Cowled Wizard with an alternative solution. Insisting on violence will make Valerie leave the party and attack alongside her colleague. However, as a gesture of good faith Valerie will waive the fee to acquire a spellcasting license from the Cowled Wizards - all you need do is talk with the magister in the Council of Six building.

 

Q. Why is Valerie going along with the plan to free Imoen?

 

A. She has her reasons. You'll find out when you reach Brynnlaw.

 

Q. Does Valerie have a personal quest?

 

A. No.

 

Q. How long is Valerie's friendship/romance?

 

A. 14 talks for the friendship, 18 for the romance (total, 4 romance-exclusive in Shadows) and 6 for the Throne romance.

 

Q. Anything special about Valerie's romance?

 

A. Nope.

 

Q. What's this noise about a Sarah romance?

 

A. Something scrapped.

 

Q. Any hidden pitfalls or hot-button issues?

 

A. Don't kill Cowled Wizards unless they're obviously corrupt or in the wrong. Valerie won't help you murder a Cowled Wizard in cold blood, but she will side with Valygar.

 

Q. Bodhi-nap or no?

 

A. As currently planned, standard Bodhi-nap.

 

Q. Flirts?

 

A. Nope.

 

Q. Sex?

 

A. Optional, but yes.

 

Q. Will there be romance conflicts with Anomen?

 

A. Yes, in the form of rivalry banters rather than direct intervention in either character's romance.

 

Q. Romance music?

 

A. Yes. Valerie's romance track will be Arri's Theme from Rise of Nations: Rise of Legends.

 

Q. Where is Valerie?

 

A. Waukeen's Promenade, surveying the crater. Valerie will only spawn there after you talk with Gaelan Bayle.

 

Q. Will Valerie fight with any party members?

 

A. She'll come very close with Viconia, but no. 

 

Q. Romance/death variable?
