There is always the classic Charlatan in RPG games, the one who can talk their way out of nearly anything. If you think your character in Starfield is particularly persuasive like that, you may want to try and persuade Brogan.
Persuasion can help you go a long way in Starfield, and if you started as someone with a background of Diplomat, Space Scoundrel, Sculptor, etc. then you will already have a leg up on it. So, in this guide, we will explain to you how you can be more successful in trying to persuade Brogan.
How to pursuade Brogan in Starfield
There is no 100% guaranteed way to persuade Brogan in Starfield; instead, the best you can do is lower your chances of failing at it. This is because the persuasion is based around RNG which means you can get unlucky and not be successful at persuasion despite trying your best to avoid it.
Here’s how the Starfield persuasion system works: You get a limited amount of turns when you initiate a persuasion on someone. These turns represent how many dialogue options you can pick. Each dialogue option will have a number attached to it which represents how many persuasion points you will get if you succeed in that dialogue option.
However, the higher the points the higher its chance to fail, which is represented by the colors green, yellow, orange, and red (going from least likely to fail to most likely, respectively). Your goal is to get the persuasion points required for that interaction within the number of turns you are provided. These values can change based on your character’s Persuasion skills.
So, coming back to the attempt where you try and persuade Brogan, his interaction requires you to get at least 4 points in order to successfully persuade him. Here are the safest options to pick to get 5 points in total when trying to persuade Brogan:
- You have it wrong. Constellation is an explorer’s group. They aren’t treasure hunters. +1
- The ship doesn’t have anything on it. You’re chasing a fairy tale. +1
- Hey, if you want to trade ships, that sounds good to me. The Frontier creaks when it turns anyway. +3
These will not guarantee it, but you get the gist of it by now. You need to pick the options with the least danger of failing while making sure you hit the points required in the given amount of turns with Brogan. There can also be different combinations of answers; just don’t pick the very risky ones trying to go straight to 5 points in one dialogue option.
That is how you can potentially persuade Brogan in Starfield. After persuading Brogan, you might want to head out into space and learn how to use the Starfield Grav Jump to fast-travel around the galaxy.
