For information on the related quest, see A Paragon of Her Kind.

The Anvil of the Void is the location of the greatest creation of Caridin, the dwarven Paragon. It is located past the Dead Trenches.

Background Edit

The area is filled with traps created by Caridin to destroy any who would find it and seek to take the Anvil for themselves. Paragon Branka led an expedition in 9:28 Dragon and she managed to uncover the location. She now seeks a way to get past the traps, by allowing darkspawn to be bred in order to be used on the traps.

Bugs Edit

  • If entering whilst in stealth mode and then talking to Branka, Oghren will enter with the other four members of your party if he wasn't already present. However he isn't a real member of your party and won't follow.
  • Sometimes a glitch will occur when you walk over the first trap in the room before the Spirit Apparatus. This glitch will automatically teleport you to the location of the Anvil of the Void without having to go through the rest of the area.
