Riannon's Floor is the fourth floor of the Grey Warden prison constructed for Corypheus. It can be accessed only from the Tower Base. It is named after Warden-Commander Riannon, who suggested periodically re-enforcing the prison seals.

Involvement Edit

This section contains spoilers for:
Dragon Age II.

Hawke continues to battle through Corypheus's prison on this floor. Larius joins Hawke as an ally during this level. It is necessary to make use of the Power Nexuses to control magical barriers throughout the prison. If Hawke sides with Janeka you will instead be taken to Corypheus's Prison - Daneken's Floor and you do not access Riannon's Floor at all.

Power Nexus PuzzleEdit


Finished beam puzzle.

In order to obtain a piece of the Legacy armor, Regalia of Weisshaupt, you must solve the power nexus puzzle. First you must activate each power nexus. The orange barrier is just at the top of the steps at the beginning of the floor; Larius will prompt you to activate this nexus in order to slow down Janeka and her party. The blue nexus is located in the middle of the east side of the map, the green nexus is in the room at the top of the map just west of the barrier room, and the red nexus is found in the southern most room. (See map.) After you've activated all of them, return to the puzzle room.


Location of nexuses.

The orange beam will have to be set in order to escape from the puzzle room after your encounter with a small party of Corypheus' followers. When you return to the puzzle room after the other nexuses have been activated, set up the green beam. Doing so will align the other two beams and allow you access to the room containing the appropriate head gear for your character's class. If the red and blue beams do not align, then set up the red beam next. The blue beam should then align automatically.
