For those who enjoyed travelling with Aura in BG1 (as well as those anticipating her BG2 continuation) here’s another companion along a similar vein for Icewind Dale: Enhanced Edition. Minerva Glimmershine is the paternal grandmother of Aura – a similarly prodigious artificer and freewheeling adventurer. Confident, daring and good-spirited, Minerva will jump at the opportunity to join the party in Easthaven, and will serve as a valuable companion with her skills in artifice, knife-throwing expertise, and boundless optimism.
She can be found in Easthaven, and her location will be very obvious upon leaving the tavern.
Race: Gnome Class: Fighter/Artificer Alignment: Neutral Good
The Boomerang Dagger +2 and Firetooth +3 ported from Baldur's Gate
If one installs the Crossmod Banter Pack for IWD:EE, Minerva will banter with Karihi, along with Dendjelion, Dusky, Ina, Oak-Maw, Tipps and Urchin by Lava Del'Vortel, as well as the Icewind Dale NPCs by Kulyok.
