Mass Effect: Andromeda - How to Romance Jaal

Learn how to romance Jaal in Mass Effect: Andromeda.

This guide will show you how to romance Jaal in Mass Effect: Andromeda. Jaal is one of the new alien races in Andromeda, the Angara and is only able to be romanced by the female Ryder twin. He is also one of the six squadmates you can unlock.

How to Romance Jaal

Before you can romance Jaal in Mass Effect: Andromeda, you must first make it to Aya and recruit him into your squad.

Before you can begin romancing Jaal, you must first unlock him as a squadmate, once that is done you will need to talk to him at every opportunity to get. Another task you must complete before you can fully romance Jaal is to finish his Loyalty mission, which also unlocks the Building Bridges Achievement or Trophy.

Step 1: Romancing Jaal

The first step to romancing Jaal in Mass Effect: Andromeda is to talk to him in the Tempest’s Tech Lab. This can be accomplished after you visit Aya and have recruited Jaal. The dialogue option you must choose is: “One more thing.” Be careful, as this romance introduction expires after finishing the Priority Ops mission, A Trail of Hope.

Step 2: Talking with Jaal

Find Jaal around the Tempest and talk to him, selecting the dialogue option: “Interested?”

Step 3: Loyalty Mission

You can begin the next section of romancing Jaal once the Akksul conversation on Vidcon has been completed. Find Jaal in the Storage Room of the Tempest to initiate his Loyalty mission.

Step 4: Visit Kadara

Talk with Jaal as much as possible, after every mission and planet, to continue romancing him.

After visiting Kadara, speak with Jaal in the Tech Lab and use the dialogue choice: “I think you’re special.”

Step 5: Completed Hunting the Archon

To continue romancing Jaal in Mass Effect: Andromeda you must talk with him on Harvest at Mom’s House. For this to become available, you need to have received an email from Jaal, have him in your party, completed the Loyalty Mission, and finished the mission, Hunting the Archon. At this point, you can commit to an exclusive relationship with Jaal. This will prevent you from being able to romance the other characters in Mass Effect: Andromeda.

Step 6: The Journey to Meridian

The next step in romancing Jaal is to speak with him in the Tempest’s Tech Lab after completing the Priority Ops mission, The Journey to Meridian. This romance option will disappear if you finish the game. You will need to select the dialogue option: “I adore you.”

Step 7: Talking with Jaal

Speak with Jaal after completing the game to romance him further.

Step 8: Romancing Jaal

To complete the Jaal romance quest, speak with him at the Aya Hub next to the Waterfall. This conversation is only available if you committed to him previously. Look out for the Dialogue Action!

There are a lot of steps involved in romancing Jaal, but if you talk to him as frequently as possible, you shouldn’t miss anything. Remember to read all the emails he sends you and check in with him each time you finish a mission or go to a new location. If you read this guide, you should now know how to romance Jaal in Mass Effect: Andromeda.
