In Warhammer 40000 Rogue Trader, you will have the possibility to romance some characters, as in any game of the genre. If you are wondering how to do it and which characters you can have as partners, in this Warhammer 40000 Rogue Trader romance guide, we will explain in detail everything you need to know so that you can achieve your goal. There are some things you need to keep in mind, in fact, so a guide is the best thing to have on hand if you don't want to make any mistakes.
How Does the Warhammer 40000 Rogue Trader Romance Work?
First of all, let's start by saying that in Warhammer 40000 Rogue Trader, you will have the possibility of romance with four different characters: Cassia, Heinrix, Jae, and Yrliet. The game gives you the possibility of having multiple romances at the same time, although, once you reach a certain point in the game, which is towards the end, you will have to make a choice that will make your choice towards one character prevail.
Obviously, you will have to pay attention to the dialogue choices that will present themselves during your adventure. In fact, some choices, rather than others, will allow you to create increasingly stronger bonds. As a result, below we will provide you with a more detailed guide on each type of romance you can undertake in Warhammer 40000 Rogue Trader.
In order to start a romance with Cassia, as soon as you meet her, you will have to give her comfort. In fact, due to her recent mutations, Cassia will feel disfigured and you will have to tell her that she is “beautiful no matter what.” In order to further strengthen this bond, you will have to be supportive of her whenever you have the chance, as well as listen to her suggestions when you are on a mission.
Also, during Act 2, pay particular attention to when you will be asked to look into Cassia's well-being. In fact, here you will have the possibility to unlock a dialogue option that allows you to boost your relationship after you have been able to send birds into her room. Ultimately, be very supportive, and this romance won't be very difficult to carry on.
Having a romance with Heinrix will be a little more difficult than with Cassia. In fact, there are some tricks that could get you into trouble. However, the general advice we want to give you is to be understanding of her motivations whenever you have the chance. In this case, as soon as you have the chance, ask Heinrix to talk to you in your room, and as soon as he talks to you about regicide, reply, “I know how to play regicide. Perhaps we could talk about the game from time to time.”
Now, progress through the story and complete Heinrix's personal quest. As soon as you return to von Valancius manor on Dargonus, you will have to take part in an event. In this case, you will have the opportunity to kiss him. Also, at the end of all this, Heinrix will be about to leave your room, but you will have the option to tell him that he doesn't need to do that. Finally, we advise you to choose all the risky options that you will have during the various interactions with this character in order to create an increasingly stronger bond.
Jae is practically the easiest Warhammer 40000 Rogue Trader character to romance. There are some dialogue choices you can make in order to create a bond with this character, even as soon as she joins your team. In fact, you will have the possibility to ask her, “Has the esteemed princess' heart been claimed by some lucky fellow ?” From here on, in order to take this bond to the maximum, you will always have to choose flirtatious options as soon as you have the chance.
The next thing to do is to give her a gift, so be ready to talk to anyone, even the other characters you're romancing. If, however, you have finished all the main missions on Dargonus, you can also ask High Factotum Janris Danrok that you intend to give her planet as a gift to Jae. After this, you will have other options that you can choose to strengthen this bond more and more.
Romancing Yrliet in Warhammer 40000 Rogue Trader is a little more complicated than the other characters. This is due to the fact that he is practically an elf, so he doesn't trust humans very much. The key to being able to have a romance with this character is to be understanding every time he talks to you about the differences between humans and his species. Also, don't try to flirt with her in the conventional way; otherwise, she will be disgusted by it and you won't have a chance to romance her.
Some interactions you can keep in mind are, for example, one in which she will be meditating in your voidship. Here, you must not disturb her in any way by making her understand that you will have remembered what she told you about meditation and its importance. When you get to the fountain scene, don't try to kiss her; just touch her hand. Finally, towards the end of Act 3, be sure to be compassionate and forgive her for what she has done to her.
