'''Bastion of the Pure''' is an incredibly rich [[lyrium]] node far beneath the [[Deep Roads]], in the Uncharted Abyss. On its floor lies the [[Thedas#Oceans and seas|Buried Sea]].
+
'''Bastion of the Pure''' is a former lyrium mine beneath the [[Deep Roads]] currently occupied by the [[Sha-Brytol]]. It is the 5th level in [[The Descent]] DLC.

According to [[Valta]], this area has not been discovered before. Therefore, not much is known beyond what the Inquisitor sees and does. This place is filled with untapped lyrium veins and Shal-Brytol.
This area is a derelict lyrium mine.<ref name="derelict">[[Landmarks in the Deep Roads#Derelict Lyrium Mine|Derelict Lyrium Mine]]</ref> [[Memories]] speak of an "unknown disaster" that led to its abandonment long before the [[First Blight]]. A [[Titan]] awoke beneath the mine in the time of [[Dwarven royalty|King]] [[Orseck Garal]] and the rhythm of its song "bled despair".<ref>Mentioned in dialogue between [[Shaperate|Shaper]] [[Valta]] and the [[Dwarf|dwarven]] [[The Inquisitor|Inquisitor]] in the [[Ruins of Heidrun Thaig]] at the lift.</ref> The earthquake caused by the titan destroyed the mine.<ref>According to [[Shaperate|Shaper]] [[Valta]] at the end of [[The Descent (quest)]].</ref>

{{SpoilerDAIT|A statue of [[Mythal]] lies broken in the caverns, which indicates that ancient elves once mined [[lyrium]] there similar to the [[Deep Roads (Trespasser)|section of the Deep Roads]] discovered in 9:44 Dragon.<ref>[[Codex entry: Veilfire Runes in the Deep Roads]]</ref>}}
 
The Buried Sea has a subtle but eerie blue color but has reportedly large waves and it is thus dangerous to stand too close.<ref>[[Deep Roads Expeditions: Buried Sea Bridge]]</ref> Swimming is also inadvisable because of significant lyrium concentration on the water.<ref>[[Landmarks in the Deep Roads#The Buried Sea|The Buried Sea]]</ref>}}

{{SpoilerDAI|The Inquisitor follows Valta through the bastion in hopes of discovering the source of the earthquakes. }}
At an unspecified time after the First Blight the Sha-Brytol started inhabiting these caverns but left the [[lyrium vein]]s unexploited and by 9:41 [[Dragon Age (time period)|Dragon]] the veins are overgrown so much that [[Varric Tethras]] jokingly remarks that he would have been the richest [[dwarf]] in the [[Dwarven Merchants' Guild]] if he exploited the untapped lyrium. However such venture is unrealistic considering the extreme dangers involved.<ref name="derelict"/> [[The Inquisitor]] may visit the location as part of [[The Descent (quest)]] along with [[Shaperate|Shaper]] [[Valta]] in hopes of discovering the source of the earthquakes.
 
 
Inside the caverns there is a strange altar with various blood markings around it and it is guarded by an [[Arcane horror]].}}

* A [[:File:Statue of Mythal - Bastion of the Pure.png|statue]] which bears the likeness of [[Mythal]] and an object which looks like an [[eluvian]] lie broken in the caverns. It is unknown if this is intentional or the objects were simply recycled from the base game.
