Baldur’s Gate 3 patch notes have arrived for BG3 hotfix 9, and this latest update to Larian Studios’ chart-topping Dungeons and Dragons RPG includes some very welcome additions. You’ll now be able to change names at the Magic Mirror, if you decide your Tav’s chosen one no longer feels right, and you can even create custom looks for your hirelings to create the party of your dreams.
The Baldur’s Gate 3 hotfix 9 patch notes kick off with the ability to change your name. BG3 is quite the lengthy RPG game, so perhaps you’ve decided after a few dozen hours that the silly name you adopted for your Tav isn’t quite as funny as it seemed at the start.
Conversely, maybe you’ve realized that ‘Handsy McSparkles’ would actually be a much cooler moniker for your gnome bard than simply ‘Sally’ or ‘Jeff.’ Or perhaps circumstance offers up a perfect chance to adjust your name for lore reasons, such as adopting a new name for your Paladin after breaking their oath, when changing your character’s gender, or when transitioning to one of the other Baldur’s Gate 3 classes.
Whatever the reason, you’ll now be able to change name in Baldur’s Gate 3 at the Magic Mirror in camp. That’s also the place where you can change appearance in BG3, and now that functionality has been extended to your hirelings as well, allowing you to craft a full party of colorful characters (or, if you prefer, a group of stunningly gorgeous adventurers liable to bring entire camps to their knees simply by walking through the door).
There’s also a number of bug fixes, including one that caused companion Minthara’s romance to trigger unreliably. Your characters should also no longer mistakenly appear in their underwear during ‘intimate scenes’ when you have nudity enabled, and – in slightly sad news – the bug causing a dance-worthy infinite loop when using Feign Death has been resolved.
