Guide to Dealing with Minthara in Baldur’s Gate 3


Ah, Minthara, the tough and sassy goblin leader in Baldur’s Gate 3. Choosing whether to join forces with her or send her packing can be a tough decision. As a paladin, Minthara can heal herself quite effectively, making her quite a formidable opponent. But fear not, my fellow adventurers, for I am here to guide you through the various ways you can deal with this feisty goblin leader. So grab your swords, embrace the shadows, or maybe even bring along a bear, as we explore the different strategies to handle Minthara in Baldur’s Gate 3.

Minthara Showdown Options

There are multiple paths you can take when it comes to dealing with Minthara. Let’s take a look at each one:

  1. Kill her at the Goblin Camp (with or without Halsin).

  2. Lead her to Emerald Grove and betray her at the last minute.

  3. Raid Emerald Grove alongside her, eliminate all the tieflings, and earn her trust (and maybe something more).

Kill her at the Goblin Camp

The simplest way to deal with Minthara is to ambush her at the Goblin Camp. After silencing Priestess Gut, head across the camp and attack Minthara in the Shattered Sanctum. Be warned, though, this battle might prove challenging without the help of Halsin. But fear not, if you manage to defeat her, you won’t have to worry about cozying up to her or including her in your party. The downside? You’ll miss out on any magical items she may have carried.

Alternatively, you can take a more creative approach and snipe her in her chambers. Just tell Minthara the location of Emerald Grove, wait for her to step away from her desk, and shoot an arrow to break the bridge beneath her. Farewell, Minthara!

If you’re feeling particularly mischievous, lead Minthara to Emerald Grove and then turn on her at the last minute. Fast travel back to the Grove, rest up, and speak with a tiefling leader to warn them of Minthara’s impending attack. Get ready for an intense battle against a horde of goblins, drow, and spiders. Make sure to save your game beforehand and prepare for a thrilling fight against overwhelming odds.

Now, if you have a taste for chaos, you can actually join forces with Minthara and launch an all-out attack on Emerald Grove. I must warn you, this is not for the faint of heart or those who cherish innocent lives. After the battle, Minthara will celebrate the bloodshed and, well, let’s just say she may take a personal interest in you. She might even become a party member, if you’re into that sort of thing. Just remember, this choice will drastically alter the course of the game, so it’s best left for future playthroughs.
