What do you think of this gorgeous Drow?
Would you like such an evil companion, full disclosure of the character, the continuation of the romance Mintara and protagonist in the release?

Did she remind you of Viconia? (if you played the Baldurs Gate 2)

It looks like her head is in the process of trying to snap itself off of her neck in that screenshot. 😂

What I find really interesting about her is that she is Jarlaxle's cousin.

Big missed opportunity. She doesn't do anything, whether you go good or evil it doesn't matter. Go kill goblins or owwww you kill me.

Great believable character, just like a female drow should be IMO. Somewhat creepy (just the right amount). Powerful. Short tempered. Bossy. Wants to show no weakness, even if there is a smidgeon. Fits the setting super well. Great voice acting.

I liked her, has more story than you think. Most people play the game a certain way, but if you change your outlook, she changes also. (Sorry not trying to spoil it)

The game files indicate that a future companion will be a drow.

She didn't talk much before I killed her. Her design isn't impressive and doesn't show she is a priestess of Lolth (no spider emblem, armor is generic). Her text is generic as well, basically order you to kill the groves. Doesn't give you a reason, doesn't promise you a reward.

Would like a lot more developpement on this character, as she is kinda the final boss of the first part of act1 . Or one possible final boss.

She is not a priestess of Lolth (unless the absolute is an invention of Lolth), but a priestess of the absolute. I guess designs for absolute Armor (except for a few goblin items) have not been finalized yet.
I also think that she is too weak for the role she plays in terms of level but

game files suggest a coming drow companion. If that is going to be Minthara it is understandable that she is only level 5.

Most of the world currently seems stuck at Lvl 5, a few stronger creatures would be manageable

Yeah , right. forgot about that, read too much Drizz't and I tend to associate drow priestess with Lolth.
I agree on the stronger creature.

It will be interesting if we can play a neutral or partially good hero with Minthara too, a bit crazy idea. Perhaps she is not as evil as it seems at first glance, judging by her ability for mercy, and by the fears that are available if you pass the check in a certain scene. Perhaps for this you will need to get her in another way, keeping her alive in the first act after taking the side of the tieflings, but not planning to play an exclusively "good" role?

She can surrender and offer our character her services, since her mission will be failed and she will be punished even if she returns to the drow. And our party is an opportunity to compete for power together. At the same time, we may have the opportunity to betray her later, and if we do not use her, we will show that we can protect her, she will appreciate it

As an alternative way to get it

but seriously, I think there would be a more clear neutral way to gain her path if she was supposed to be available for a true neutral playthru. Killing a bunch of teiflings and druids kind of feels less neutral, even if there are no witnesses left. I think the dialogue she gives you when she gives you the moontowers dialogue is a little too obvious in regard to her belief in the Absolute for them to change the writing to the extent you are suggesting.

As tempting as it is, I'm not one to play the kind of chaotic evil that would raze away. I prefer subtle when it comes to villainy.

I'd like to see Minthara as a drow companion since I see we are suppose to get one. Also her head looks like it is about to fall off in that screenshot.

PS: I lost Halsin in that fight so I reloaded and killed her again just for good measure.

In all seriousness, just going by your screenshot as I have yet to have a conversation with her myself, I don't think she is a good representation of a female Drow from Menzobarranzan. First off, her hair looks like she has a mop on her head. Hairstyle is important and a mark of standing in Drow society. She looks like a male with shoulder length hair. No noble female Drow would wear their hair like that. Also, her skin is far too pale for a Drow. She looks like Astarion without the curls. Drow are called dark elves for a reason.

I used to be in the Minthara fan club. I was even willing to be her consort in Menzoberranzan. But she has trust issues.

I don't think that she should be available for a good aligned player. Shadowheart is confused about her morals, we do not need two of her kind. Minthara can take the role of cleric if shadowheart leaves
