Bethany's starting approval rating is Friendship small (+50); she will receive an unavoidable Friendship small (+10) in prologue (Friendship small (+15) if the aggressive dialogue with Wesley is chosen). This makes it virtually impossible to maximize rivalry with her.

Friendship Edit

Friendship with Bethany can generally be earned through acts of kindness, by siding with mages or by supporting family. Bethany is a faithful Andrastian and also distinctly opposed to blood magic, so rebuffing demons and opposing blood mages will earn friendship as well.

PrologueEdit

  • The Destruction of Lothering: As a non-mage, choose the Aggressive response to Wesley's threatening of Bethany, upon meeting Aveline for the first time for Friendship small (+15). All other choices garner Friendship small (+10).

Act 1Edit

  • Bait and Switch: Directly defend Bethany at the end of the quest for Friendship small (+5)
  • Birthright: By simply entering the vault in the Amell Estate basement you gain Friendship small (+15). A further Friendship small (+5) can be gained upon returning to Gamlen's House with Grandfather's Will and speaking with Bethany by choosing the friendly response on the second dialogue wheel.
  • The Deep Roads Expedition: Take Bethany on the expedition Friendship small (+10)
  • Enemies Among Us: Ask for Bethany's assistance in breaking Idunna's compulsion Friendship small (+5)
  • Long Way Home: When Merrill opens the barrier with blood magic, choose the Aggressive option, "The demon, you mean." for Friendship small (+5)
  • Loose Ends: (Athenril/Smuggler Path) Let the young boy start a new life with his sisters by letting him have the loot. Friendship small (+15)
  • Magistrate's Orders: If you let Kelder die Friendship small (+5)
  • Portrait of the Past: Giving Bethany your mother's portrait (found in a chest in the Amell Estate basement) back at Gamlen's House results in Friendship small (+15), regardless of dialogue choices.
  • Shepherding Wolves: Accept the quest from Sister Petrice Friendship small (+5)
  • Tranquility: Promise Lirene you won't harm Anders Friendship small (+5)
    Tranquility: Upon leaving Lirene's Fereldan Imports you will be approached by Angry Fereldan; choosing the response, "We're on the same side." (available to a Diplomatic Hawke) instead of deferring to Bethany results in Friendship small (+5). Alternatively, deferring to Bethany will result in the same approval gain, though Aveline Vallen does not gain Friendship small (+5) also.
    Tranquility: When talking to Anders, choosing "You want me to fight templars?" yields Friendship small (+5)
    Tranquility: When asked to kill Karl, choosing "Do as he asks" yields Friendship small (+5)
  • Wayward Son: If Hawke choose the option "make up for your neglect" when speaking with Vincento. Friendship small (+5)

Legacy DLCEdit

  • Legacy (quest) If you side with Larius Friendship small (+5).
  • After defeating Corypheus and returning to your house, talking with Bethany and choosing the diplomatic or sarcastic options yields Friendship small (+5)

Rivalry Edit

Rivalry with Bethany can generally be earned by choosing aggressive responses, by siding against mages or by exploiting Fereldans.

Act 1Edit

  • Long Way Home: When Merrill opens the barrier with blood magic, say "It did help us". Rivalry small (+5)
  • Bait and Switch: At the end of the quest, agree with Fenris by saying, "I know the risks" of cooperating with a mage. Rivalry small (+5)
