Crestwood is a grasslands region located north of Lake Calenhad in Ferelden.

Background[edit | edit source]

Crestwood's namesake, taken from Ser Venar Crestwood, was awarded to the region by King Brandel after Ser Venar, the first captain of Caer Bronach, guarded the keep against Orlesian forces during the Second Orlesian Invasion of Ferelden in 8:26 Blessed.[1]

Three Trout Pond hides a sinkhole hundreds of yards deep. Darkspawn emerged from this and other caves to attack Crestwood during the Blight. The flood that wiped out Old Crestwood drowned the blighted ones, and the excess water created the pond we see today.[2]

The village was hit hard by the darkspawn during the Fifth Blight. Many refugees tried to find shelter in Crestwood, however some of them were carrying the blight disease and were infecting others. The diseased were moved to the caves beneath the town. On the 8th of Bloomingtide 9:30 the invading darkspawn finally arrived and surrounded most of the valley the village is in. Mayor Gregory Dedrick decided to open the dam and flood the village, killing the darkspawn, and any remaining villagers inside, to save the lives of everyone else.

Involvement[edit | edit source]


This section contains spoilers for:
Dragon Age: Inquisition.


Following their exodus from Haven, the Inquisition receives reports of the appearance of a Fade rift beneath Crestwood's lake. As a result, demons and the undead plague the area. The region is also troubled by a dragon that is ravaging its livestock and a group of highwaymen that have taken over Caer Bronach and prowl the surrounding roads. Crestwood is also the site at which Hawke's Grey Warden informant has taken refuge. The Inquisitor can gain access to Crestwood by completing the Find the Warden war table scouting operation in Skyhold.
