Check on Anders is an Act 3 companion quest for Anders in Dragon Age II.

Visit Anders at his clinic in Darktown or, if Hawke is in a romance with him and invited him to move in, at Hawke's Estate

Acquisition[edit | edit source]

Received at the beginning of Act 3.

Walkthrough[edit | edit source]

Hawke witnesses Anders either conspiring with Merrill (templars side, rival), refusing service to Isabela on the grounds that he can't/won't treat "that kind of illness", or clashing with Aveline.

Note: If Isabela is not a companion of Hawke in Act 3, Seneschal Bran will be there instead.

Romance[edit | edit source]

If Hawke is in a romance with Anders then you can tell him that you have a gift for him; you give him a key to the cellar (that has an exit next to Anders's clinic) so he can escape to Darktown if necessary.

  • diplomatic or aggressive: Anders says you’ll understand when it’s him that Meredith is coming for, and that you won’t be able to sit by so righteously.
  • humorous: Anders says it makes him believe that you and he can do anything.

Talk to Anders:

  • If you didn't give him the key already you have another opportunity to give it to him.
  • Otherwise:
    • You can flirt with Anders here.
    • Otherwise it doesn't matter what you say to him.
Note: These are the only two opportunities you have to give Anders this key. This completes The Key to Your Heart quest.

No Romance[edit | edit source]

If Hawke is not in a romance with Anders then he tells Hawke that Meredith has all but destroyed the mage underground and those left have turned to blood magic as their only option.

As a Friend, choosing the Diplomatic ("There's still hope.") or Aggressive option ("We will stop her.") in the second dialogue prompt results in Anders friendship Friendship (+10).

As a Rival, choosing the Diplomatic option in the second dialogue prompt ("Maybe it's for the best") results in Anders friendship Friendship (+10). Choosing the Aggressive option ("All mages are dangerous") results in Anders rivalry Rivalry (+10).

After the second dialogue prompt, Anders will state either that the Fifth Blight was stopped with the help of two mages, one being an apostate, or that a mage saved everyone from the Blight.
