Community Update #10 – Romance Numbers & Cinematic Tweaks

You can find Scratch, the dog in question, to the west of the Druid Grove on the game’s map. You’ll need to pass a few pretty important Animal Handling checks to earn his affection, but just look at him – isn’t he worth it?

Scratch’s presence at your camp has a number of benefits. You can pet him or play fetch as much as you want, which earns “approval” from your companions (except Lae’zel – who must be a cat person), and he’ll occasionally bring you a pouch that contains useful items, like Potions of Healing.

If you ask me, 400,000 pets isn’t nearly enough for a boy this good. If you want to contribute, go get Baldur’s Gate 3 on Steam right now.
