The latest Baldur's Gate 3 patch finally gets Minthara under control

By FileTrekker 2 months ago, last updated 2 months ago

It's not always a bad thing when your companions take their own initiative from time to time, but it's fair to say that Minthara is one Baldur's Gate 3 character who has a rather nasty habit of completely ignoring you by refusing to do anything you ask - be that follow your party, or leave it... talk about split personality. Luckily though, this bug has now been resolved in the latest update pushed by Larian.

At least these days, teaming up with Minthara at all is easier - previously, she'd usually refuse unless you happened to be playing as a very, very bad person who hates druids - but the bugs being addressed specifically prevent a weird quirk where she stops following the party during Act II and III. Additionally, she'll now leave the party correctly after being escorted out of Moonrise Towers.

According to the update post, Larian has "fixed an issue where everyone's favourite drow would simply decide not to follow the party in Act II or Act III. You should find her more willing to fall in line now—at least in terms of keeping up. She's still something of a free spirit." 

There are a bunch of other fixes that have rolled out in the patch, too, including;

  •  Introduced a few crash safeguards to ensure that when a savegame fails to load, you'll be sent back to the Main Menu.
  •  Fixed some issues causing the second player on split screen to have a black screen for 30 seconds.
  •  Fixed a bug preventing you from opening containers (like the Camp Supply Sack) while trading if you selected a different character from the one who initiated the trade. This also fixed a sneaky money exploit.
  •  Fixed a bug causing the environment to never take its turn, blocking combat from progressing.
  •  Fixed a bug causing you to get stuck in combat if there were still some bats remaining after you defeated Cazador.
  •  Fixed an infinite loot bug that would duplicate Herdmaster Skardjall's Scale Mail every time you removed the Whipping Cane from his body.
  •  Fixed a bug causing the crime dialogue for trespassing to get spammed beside the Steel Watch Foundry.
  •  Fixed some banding and shader issues in cinematics that were causing VFX artefacts on faces at certain angles.
  •  Fixed Minthara sometimes not following the party in Act II or Act III.
  •  Fixed a case where Halsin wouldn't move to his position when you arrived at Last Light in Act II.
  •  Fixed an issue where Minthara wouldn't leave the party after being escorted out of Moonrise Towers.
  •  Fixed an issue causing characters to tell you they were too busy to talk to you when you tried to speak to them. They were lying.
  •  Fixed missing tab textures in the Trade UI.
  •  Hid the filter tabs for traders when bartering with them, these will be reintroduced in a future update pending further testing.
  •  Fixed a potential crash when preloading complex cinematics.
