Bombs Away! is a side quest in Dragon Age: Origins - Awakening. Dworkin Glavonak needs lyrium in order to make some fire grenades.


This is a fairly straight forward quest. To begin this quest you must complete one of the main campaign quests, then talk to Dworkin Glavonak in the courtyard at Vigil's Keep. He will ask you to bring him Lyrium Sand, which can be found in Vigil's Keep - Deep Roads, Kal'Hirol (x2) and the Silverite Mine (4 total). Give him the Lyrium Sand and he will make some Dworkin the Mad's Explosives, a powerful grenade weapon.


Different bomb variations can be obtained depending on the dialogue choice.

  • "Your brother is right. You're no use to anyone dead."
Reward: Dworkin's "Safe" Explosives - thrown fire damage grenade (1/2 Fireball spell size)

ps3PS3pcPC If you wait and turn in all 4 lyrium sands at once to Dworkin, the quest may not complete. It is possible to complete the quest with 3 lyrium sands, but you only get 1 bomb and the quest is marked as complete. When you find the 4th sand a quest marker is placed above Dworkin´s head, however no conversation is triggered.
