Dragon Age II

Deep Mushroom (Inquisition)

Dragon Age: Inquisition

The term "deep mushroom" refers to the entire group of fungi that grows underground in caves and many parts of the Deep Roads.[1] They are prized by herbalists for their restorative properties, and they can be made into poisons.[2][3] These fungi are part of the dwarven diet and are considered delicacies.[4]


Deep mushrooms grow in close proximity to darkspawn bodies and lyrium veins.[3][4] Dwarven merchants often hire casteless for very little money to enter the Deep Roads and collect the mushrooms, a dangerous task due to the everlasting presence of darkspawn.[1] In Orzammar they are farmed.[5]

The most common varieties used by herbalists are the Blightcap, Ghoul's Mushroom, and Brimstone Mushroom. They carry the darkspawn taint, making them quite poisonous. However, they do not transmit the disease. Without adequate cleaning and preparation, consuming these mushrooms can cause insanity, severe abdominal cramping, and even death.[1]

In small quantities they are served in dwarven dishes because of their unique flavor and intoxicating scent.[4]

  • "Another doomed soul come to drown their sorrows here, I see?"
  • "Ha-ha! You're a rare one, you are, making me laugh with this blackness hanging over our heads."


  • All romance-able female party members will lose approval if you ask for a kiss, regardless of your romance of them or lack thereof.
  • After the cutscene, if you have Oghren in your party, he will say: "Hot" and gain +2 Approval.


  • ps3Icon ps3 ps3Icon ps3 With The Stone Prisoner DLC installed, and after intimidating Lloyd to leave and join the defense of the town, Bella will allow you to look through Lloyd's tavern supplies and help yourself to the items he has in storage. Giving crystals then leaving the tavern and returning, the tavern reloads, the store resets and Bella will allow you to help yourself to the crystals again. Obviously, you can sell these crystals and have an infinite supply of gold. However, this bug, at least if overused, seems to lead to a corrupted save file, probably due to a counter overflow in tracking the total number of crystals sold to a merchant (PC was patched with v1.02).
  • ps3Icon ps3 To avoid save file corruption from over use of Bella's infinite sovereigns glitch, confine buying and selling the free crystal's to the temporary merchant in Haven. His store is unique in that it does not keep track of all the crystals that you sell him, nor does his store remain after you initiate the events in the town. Or to be on the safe side, one could restrian doing this glitch until brilliant and flawless crystals appear in Bella's store (lvl 18-20) (Only confirmed by one user need another to verify)
  • If Lloyd dies in The Attack at Nightfall and the Warden returns to the tavern, a male Warden can ask Bella for a kiss by selecting the "hero's welcome" dialogue option and/or in return for the 500 DAO silverpiece trans. During the cut-scene for either kiss Lloyd will appear behind the counter for a few seconds before the camera cuts away. Once the kiss is over Lloyd is again gone. Any romance-able female party member will lose influence if you accept the kiss, even if they are not being romanced.


When Shale was moved from Redcliffe to Honnleath during development, a humorous exchange with Bella was left on the cutting room floor. This exchange can still be found within Bella's dialogue file via the toolset.

  • Bella: "Yes? Can I--oh dear. Isn't that the statue that's been standing outside for years, now?"
  • Shale: "And it is the human that likes to lie in my shadow when coupling with others of its kind. Delightful."
  • Bella: "And it speaks! Does it drink ale, too?"
  • Shale: "Thankfully, no. Perhaps it should serve those who require serving?"
  • Bella: "Then I will... do that. Welcome to the bar, at any rate, er... statue-man."
