Baldur’s Gate 3: Minthara Romance and Recruitment Guide
Players can slay all the leaders present at the Goblin Camp before exiting Emerald Grove in Act 1. The best ways to get inside silently are through your illithid mind powers or rescuing Sazza in the Emerald Grove.
- You must begin by checking the dead Tiefling, who was slain during your maiden visit to Emerald Grove.
- As you talk, the sister of the Tielfling will run away, and you have to follow her to reach Sazza.
- Get in between the sister and Sazza so she cannot fire.
- Turn on the DC 10 Persuasion check to make the Tiefling understand not to shoot at Sazza.
- If you are a rouge, open the cage with a lockpick or have Astarion do it.
- Sazza will give her thanks, and you can take her out of Emerald Grove by using a DC 15 Persuasion check that does not involve a fight.
- Go to the Goblin Camp once you have exited, and they will not pounce at you since you are with Sazza.
Minthara can be found at the Shattered Sanctum (X: 334, Y: 43). She will reveal her idea of attacking the Emerald Grove, and if you show you know the presence of the Grove, Minthara uses her illithad powers to find the spot. After she gets the information, Minthara finds the army of goblins.
Players take a long rest and once done, you will head to Druid’s Grove, where the attack will start. You must finish all the Emerald Grove quests before that, as you will not have the chance to complete them later.
Getting inside Emerald Grove
Once a cutscene has ended, players get inside the Emerald Grove, and you will have to climb up the ladder to the wall and let Zevlor know of your plans. It is important to remember that you will have to let go of Karlach and Wyll through this decision. The fight will start now, and Zevlor will be your most potent foe, given his vital defense stat, so you have to weaken him.
Minthara gets inside the office of Zevlor, and if you go after her, there will be a fight with the residents, and once the office is empty, Minthara instructs you to finish off the Druids. A couple of your biggest enemies are Rath and Nettie, meaning you have to focus on them as the other goblins keep the Druids busy.
Interact with Minthara
Players will rejoice with the goblins back at your camp, and here is where you interact with Minthara, who gives you an illithid tadpole plus the offer of spending the night with her. If you choose to advance with this, you will be in a scene where players must complete a DC 2 Persuasion or Deception check to work things out smoothly. Otherwise, a fight erupts.
If you deny it, there is a confrontation in the Morning, and you must complete a DC 12 Persuasion check or DC 15 Intimidation check to avoid fighting and start the Moonrise Towers mission.
Rescue Minthara at Moonrise Towers
Minthara will be at the Moonrise Towers’ main floor (X:153, Y: -190) as you witness Minthara being whisked off to prison, no matter what your action will be.
Now, you have to go to the prison (X: 636, Y: -669), and you will be met with two guards on their way to question her. You can either slay them or do a DC 12 Persuasion check to remove them.
It is vital to intercept them; if you do not, Minthara loses her memory and cannot be recruited anymore. There is a sentinel who will stop you from exiting the Moonrise Towers, and you must complete a DC 12 Persuasion check here to escape with Minthara safely. Tell her the location of your camp, and you will find her the next time you go there; all set to join.
Thus, that is all the information players will need when recruiting Minthara in BG3. It will require some difficult decisions from the players regarding whether they want to attack Emerald Grove. Nevertheless, she will be a great asset if you choose to go ahead.
