If you chose to kill Witherfang and the Werewolves at the conclusion of the quest "Nature of the Beast," as you exit the Lair of the Werewolves and enter the chamber at the top of the stairs with the round raised floor and the decapitated dead knight at the center, you will see Zathrian, the Keeper of the Dalish elf clan, waiting for you. If you do not approach him, but instead bombard him with AOE spells, he can be killed for some xp and the same loot drop as if you had decided to join the werewolves and slaughter the elves. Namely, his Staff of the Magister Lords and Keeper's Ring. As you have now glitched the quest by killing Zathrian, return to the Dalish camp to find him standing in his usual position. Speak to him and the world will glitch, causing the cut scene to happen in an environment well below and off screen of the dalish camp,. If the Griffon's Beak was promised to the player for the slaying of Witherfang, however, it cannot be attained, as Zathrian disappears after the conversation that was supposed to have occured in the Ruins Upper Level and Zathrian grants that weapon to the player upon your return to the Dalish camp if you had done it the correct way. For a player not using two handed weapons, the ring and staff might be a better choice than completing the quest as normal.The rest of the game is not glitched by this, you get a quest completion for having sided with the elves and you can enter your map screen via the back button to leave the glitched world beneath the dalish camp. Try this out.
