Break Venatori Hold on Wycome is a war table operation in Dragon Age: Inquisition.


After completing Protect Clan Lavellan operation with Cullen and the main quest Here Lies the Abyss or Wicked Eyes and Wicked Hearts.

Operation text

Ambassador Montilyet,

It has been my pleasure to meet Duke Antoine of Wycome and pay my respects on behalf of the Inquisition. The duke is a most friendly man. Indeed, I dare say he thinks the best of everyone, and has advisors from as far away as Tevinter!

Duke Antoine assures me that he wishes the Inquisition well, and will offer us military support as soon as his city has recovered from a strange disease that has spread through most of the human population, though the elves in the alienage are thus far unaffected. This illness may explain why bandits were able to operate so close to Wycome with impunity: all the nobles and most of the soldiers have been weakened.

Any concerns I have raised, he say, can wait until then. The duke's Tevinter advisor has indicated an eagerness to make my acquaintance, and it is becoming increasingly difficult to resist such a tempting offer.

Yours in haste,
Lady Guinevere Volant

Advisor suggestions

Note: The time listed is the time it takes with no agents.

Josephine - 3:12:00

Though I fear for her safety, Lady Guinevere is a brilliant negotiator. If anyone can find a peaceful solution, it is her.

Leliana - 4:00:00

This is no longer a matter of diplomacy. Josephine's diplomat believes that the Tevinter advisor is Venatori. We must eliminate him.

Cullen - N/A

Not participating in this mission.




The diplomat was right, for all the good it did her. The Tevinter advisor was Venatori, and the illness affecting the humans in the city was evidently due to the Venatori planting red lyrium in the wells used by the humans.

Lady Guinevere got this information to me shortly before she was eliminated. I am attempting to remove myself from the area, but am unsure whether I will be successful. The nobles of Wycome have mobilized their forces. They have killed the elves of Wycome's alienage, and are marching upon the Dalish as well, convinced that their red lyrium sickness is actually some sort of elven curse.

If I survive, I will be in contact. If not, I urge you to burn all contacts in Wycome. The well is poisoned—literally, in this case.




The Tevinter advisor has been eliminated. Documents on his person prove that he was indeed Venatori, and also shed some light on the mysterious illness plaguing the humans of Wycome: the Venatori planted red lyrium in the wells from which the humans drink, evidently testing whether the entire city could be transformed into soldiers like the red templars.

I took the liberty of destroying the red lyrium in the wells, as it was impossible to wait for an answer from you in Skyhold. This has ended the direct threat, along with the death of the Venatori advisor; however, tensions remain high, and I suspect that the residents' withdrawal from the red lyrium will only exacerbate the situation.
