Minthara Dialogue Options

You find Minthara at the Shattered Sanctum, discussing with a Goblin about what measures take in order to find the Druid Grove. When you interact with her, she immediately recognizes you as a True Soul. 

If you already met Torturer Spike and successfully tortured the prisoner, you can tell her where the Druid Grove is, or if you have already been there, tell her yourself.

If you tell her the location of the Druid Grove, once there, you can decide to betray her and defend the Grove alongside Zevlor and the Tieflings, or betray Zevlor and help Minthara and the goblin army to raze the Druid Grove.

  • Upon entering the Shattered Sanctum without initiating combat (friendly terms with the Goblins), you can choose to speak to Minthara and agree to join her hunt (Attack Druid Grove).
  • Back at the Druids Grove gain Minthara's trust by betraying the Tieflings (Betray Zevlor) during the ensuing confrontation. Opening the gate for Minthara's hunting party (Blow the warhorn - Betray Zevlor) will lead to a battle with the grove's inhabitants. After slaying every Tiefling and wiping out the druids, return to Minthara.
  • Minthara will offer to join you at your camp. End the day to camp and speak to Minthara. She will join you once you head to your bed.
    • During the following cutscene you have to choose to:
      - Search for her desires: this will result in the possibility to persuade [Persuasion 8]her in the following conversation.
      - [Wisdom Check 16]: Search her fears: this will result in having to intimidate her [Intimidation 16] or initiate combat
               - failing to persuade / intimidate her will result in being attacked by her inside your camp.

      In order to gain her trust and keep her approval it is advised not to search through her fears in order to gain access to the overland route to the moonrise towers without being affected by the "curse".

      So Minthara I assume is now an Oath of Glory Paladin via Patch 9 (Used to be a Cleric), so she can use Guiding Bolt; but she also has an innate Mirror Images spell? It's also interesting that her weapon Xyanyde applies Faerie Fire, since she should be able to apply it whenever she needs being a Drow. I have a feeling she will be annihilated by Lolth by the end of the story, if we manage to expose the plotters behind the false god Absolute, her spiders already believe she is a betrayer.
