Mim Wobblegander is one of the last artisans you’ll likely recruit, as you must claim the Silverstep region to attract her attention, which in turn requires you to complete the errand The Lonely Hunter, which won’t occur until Chapter 3.
Once you’ve claimed Silverstep, Mim will arrive in your throne room and give you her sale’s pitch, starting the errand Green Stone, which is about as simple as quests get, really. Bring her an Emerald (you can find one in the Waterlogged Lowland area) to complete the quest, after which she’ll ask you to build Mim’s Jewelry Shop in your Silverstep village.
As the name of her building suggests, she’s a jeweler, and will craft three types of items for you: amulets, headbands and rings. These can have a wide variety of powers, and it’s well worth the effort to recruit her early so you can accumulate as many of these items as possible. Her masterpiece ring, Great Dreamer’s Smile, gives a +2 bonus to attack/damage rolls, +2 to saves, +2 skill checks, +2 spell penetration checks and immunity to curses, making it a great item for nearly any character to possess… especially hybrid warrior/casters.
Recruiting Mim Wobblegander
Early in Chapter 3 (+205 days AAC3 time) you’ll get an event which will start the errand The Lonely Hunter. Complete it and you’ll unlock the Claim Silverstep project, which will set you back 375 BP and take two weeks. Once done, you should shortly thereafter attract the attention of Mim Wobblegander, who will appear in your throne room and ask you for an emerald, starting the errand Green Stone in the process. Found a village in the Silverstep region, then travel there and give her the stone to complete her errand and earn 600 XP. This will allow you to build Mim’s Jewelry Shop (30 BP), after which she’ll start crafting items for you.
Three Wishes - Mim Wobblegander’s Masterpiece Quest
After you’ve recuited Mim Wobblegander, completed her errand Green Stone, and built Mim’s Jewlery Shop, you’ll have to wait for her to craft you an item. When she’s in your throne room she’ll mention coming to see her in your Silverstep Village. Do so (ideally you built a Mage Tower there so you can teleport directly from your capital) and she’ll mention three wishes she wants granted. Apparently getting her that emerald was the first, and for the second, she wants some very specific alcohol - either “elven absinth” or “berry wine from Kyonin”.
The Elven Absinth is easy enough to find, just return to the Secluded Lodge and buy it from Dumra for 400 gold. Return to Dumra with the beverage and you’ll get 180 XP, after which Mim will tell you she’ll think of the third wish later… when she decides what to ask for.
Return to your throne room and you’ll immediately be told that Mim has gone missing, with the only clue to her whereabouts being a villager who saw her heading towards Talon Peak. You’ll get another 180 XP for hearing this information, and you’ll need to deal with the matter quickly, as the quest will expire in a mere 14 days.
To reach Talon Peak from your capital, follow these directions:
- East (across the Shrike River)
- Northeast (across the Crooked River)
- Southeast (along the Crooked River)
- South (along the Crooked River - path winds to Talon Peak)
As you can see, the route is not at all straight-forward or intuitive, and the journey itself will likely take over two days of travel, so prepare accordingly.
When you arrive, you’ll find yourself along the southwestern end of a map consisting of some winding mountain trails, two stretches divided by a cave, to be precise. This area is more fully covered on the Talon Peak page, but you’ll need to pretty much clear both of the Talon’s Peak maps to appease Mim.
Ascend the mountain and kill Primal Giant Spiders and Spider Swarms as you go. After you pass through the cave, you’ll find Mim just to the south.
When you’re ready, talk to Mim and heal her with magic, or by succeeding at a [Nature 25] and a [Nature 20] check. You’ll get 180 XP for finding her, and another 180 XP for healing her. Encourage her to continue her ascent, then follow her to the next map area.Talk to her when you arrive for another 180 XP and the quest will be completed.
