Wyll’s approval is a precious resource for the heroic, the kind-hearted, and perhaps even the thirsty who play Baldur’s Gate 3. A relatively late addition to your party, Wyll is nevertheless a valuable ally for those seeking help the refugees of The Grove and the defenseless people beyond.
If you’re looking for help in this area, this approval and romance guide with Wyll will guide you through what he likes and what you need to do to make him fall in love with you in Act 1.
How to get Wyll approval
Wyll’s approval is earned whenever you make a dialogue/narrative decision he likes while he’s in your party. If you want him to like you more, it is important that he is present throughout your adventure and that you make important decisions in the missions that align with his character.
Wyll is a kind-hearted guy, looking to help the innocent and generally be heroic while doing it. It is important that while he is in your party you do nothing nefarious, especially against the tiefling refugees in the druid grove. If you do, he will react badly.
Wyll also holds a grudge against the goblins in the goblin camp near the grove. Take him there with you and he will pressure you to destroy the camp, the goblin bosses there, and its inhabitants. With this in mind, if you want to ally yourself with the goblins, you will ultimately have to choose between them and Wyll.

For example, helping teach tiefling children to fight and inspiring them is something Wyll will enjoy. Meanwhile, in a vast example to the contrary, letting the goblins invade the grove will displease Wyll so much that he will abandon your party.
If you’re looking for other partners who will work well with Wyll without being at odds, Gale is a great choice! As long as he is inquisitive and curious about magical things, he will support your heroic decisions like Wyll does.
Romantic Guide to Wyll
As you get to know Wyll, he’ll end up asking you to talk to a goblin torturer in the goblin camp. Bring him and do it, and you will get the stone eye from him. Siding with him and doing what he tells you throughout the goblin camp is a good way to earn Wyll’s approval, and is necessary to unlock him as a romance option.
Once you’ve freed Halsin, take care of the goblins and return to the grove. This will start a party, at which point you should be able to talk to Wyll and convince him to get romantic. It will require a difficult persuasion check with a bar of 15 that you will have to overcome, but if you do it then you will be free to spend a restless night with the Blade of Borders.
