Baldur's Gate 3 Hotfix #9 Introduces Exciting Changes and Fixes

In the realm of Faerûn, it seems that there's never a dull moment when it comes to updates for Baldur's Gate 3. Just three days after the release of hotfix #8, which rectified various issues, including a somewhat haughty feline and the curious tendency of companions to pass on their entire grocery list to you, Larian Studios has rolled out hotfix #9.

Hotfix #9 addresses a range of concerns, such as the perplexing phenomenon of your legs becoming transparent when wearing a particular armor set. It also tackles several pesky bugs. However, the standout feature in this update is the ability to profoundly transform the appearance and identity of your summoned hirelings, down to an almost molecular level.

Up until this point, the magic mirror at your party campsite allowed only your main character to alter their appearance. However, with hotfix #9, you can now extend this makeover privilege to your hirelings, those loyal yet expendable souls you can summon with a mere 100 gold pieces.

This newfound power allows you to change not only your hirelings' gender and names but almost every facet of their appearance. One limitation, however, is that you cannot switch between masculine and feminine appearance options, even if you change a character's gender. Despite this minor setback, the hotfix ensures that you can now see their legs while they don Adamantine Splint Armor.

For avid players of Baldur's Gate 3, hotfix #9 is a significant addition to an already fantastic game. The continuous stream of patches and hotfixes only serves to enhance the overall experience.
