How to Romance Shadowheart in Baldur’s Gate 3

The Baldur’s Gate 3 Shadowheart romance involves learning more about her past as a Shar worshiper, and continuing to welcome her in spite of her secretive nature. This is also related to her companion quest: Daughter of Darkness and Chosen of Shar. Here’s a quick summary:

  • You’ll first encounter Shadowheart aboard the Nautiloid during the game’s prologue. Make sure to save her, since this nets you approval points. You can refer to our companion recruitment guide for more info.
  • Shadowheart’s approval can be raised quite easily. Despite being a follower of Shar, she actually prefers kind and compassionate actions, as well as using your wiles to trick enemies (i.e. Persuasion and Deception). Early on, she’s also at odds with Lae’zel, so make sure you respond to certain suggestions accordingly.
  • Eventually, Shadowheart will open up about her true nature, as well as what her artifact is for. Even though Shar is feared by most citizens in Faerun, you have to remain welcoming and accepting. This will lead to a scene where her past is revealed.

Potential First Kiss With Shadowheart

During the early access period, the Baldur’s Gate 3 Shadowheart romance simply meant being in good standing with her, and saving the Tiefling refugees. This leads to a party back in your camp, where you and Shadowheart can have a drink. This also lets you kiss her, which advances the romance further.

Unfortunately, this option was not available during our playthrough, even though we mostly followed the same decisions/actions that we did in the past. We can’t say if the requirements have been changed, or if another romance was blocking this “flag” from being triggered, such as attempting to kiss Karlach during Act 1.

Shadowheart Info: Flowers and Swimming

Anytime you have an opportunity to talk to Shadowheart (i.e. she has an exclamation point on her head), check if there are new dialogue options where she’d open up more to you. Examples include her telling you about how a Night Orchid is her favorite flower, and that she never learned to swim.

The Night Orchid is something you can find in the Shadow-Cursed Lands during Act 2. Simply search the cliffside roads along the northern and central portion of the zone. You can give it to her, which she’ll appreciate. As for swimming, well, that’s related to a love scene, which we discuss in a while.

The Nightsong Decisions

Fast forward to Act 2, which is where you can progress Shadowheart’s companion quest further. This leads to the Gauntlet of Shar dungeon, and the eventual decision that you need to make when it comes to the Nightsong. There are a couple of possible outcomes:

  • Spare Nightsong – Shadowheart will be blessed with Selune’s weapon, and she’ll be forsaken by Shar. She’s a bit worried about her faith, though she’s more open about your relationship. Choose to continue pursuing it.
  • Kill Nightsong – Shadowheart will be blessed by Shar herself. She claims that she only has love for her goddess, though you can tell her that you want to keep trying with your relationship. Surprisingly enough, she’s back to being her giddy self afterward. She’s got a new hairdo, and there’s an option to kiss her via dialogue.
  • Unknown: Offer your heart and soul to Shar – There’s a statue of Shar that characters can worship, which grants them a necrotic resistance buff. However, if Shadowheart attempts to pray, she hears nothing. The only other option is a Religion check, which notes that she has to offer her very being to Shar only. We’ve yet to see if the outcome for this is different after clearing the dungeon.

For the purpose of this Baldur’s Gate 3 Shadowheart romance guide, we opted to spare Nightsong. The succeeding outcomes are also based on this decision.

You can choose to continue your romance with Shadowheart after the pivotal moment in the Gauntlet of Shar.

The Dark Urge Dilemma

In addition to the above, there’s also an important incident that occurs if you picked the Dark Urge origin. This happens if (a) your character did not murder Isobel the Cleric, and (b) you’ve fallen in love with a companion. The Dark Urge goads you into killing them the next time you fall asleep, so make sure to do the following:

  • Attempt to wake up your partner and pass the Wisdom 14 saving throw.
  • When you’re bound, pass the next Wisdom 18 saving throws. You’ll have a slight advantage since your lover will believe in you.

Failure to do so will make you kill your lover. It will probably lead to a game over, since your party members will get sick and tired of your murderous rampage, and they’ll have no choice but to put an end to you.

Shadowheart's hair will also turn silvery white, a sign that she's no longer a follower of Shar.

Love Scene: Skinny Dipping

The Baldur’s Gate 3 Shadowheart romance culminates at the start of Act 3 (i.e. after you defeat Ketheric Thorm). For the most part, you should rest up in your camp a few times. There will be several cutscenes and events, some of which don’t actually involve Shadowheart. But, shortly thereafter, you’ll learn more about her past because you spared Nightsong.

Shadowheart wants to forget her time as a deluded follower of Shar. She invites you to go swimming with her. Accept the offer and select the appropriate responses. This will lead to a skinny dipping and intimate session at the beach.
