The Tower Base is the lowest floor of the Grey Warden prison constructed for Corypheus.

Background[edit | edit source]

It is so deep within the ground that it connects to the Deep Roads, and as such houses much of the same wildlife such as deepstalkers. It can only be entered from Farele's Floor. On traversing the final semicircular passageway leading to the seal, if Anders is in the party, he will be overcome by Corypheus's call to his warden taint. Justice will come emerge and summon two Shades. Hawke must defeat all three with the remaining party members. Afterwards, Anders will stand up and thank Hawke, returning to normal and to the party. As he has left the party and rejoined, be sure to recast any sustaining effects by him or party affecting effects that would benefit him.
