Desperate Haven is a quest in Dragon Age: Origins.


This quest can be received from the Chanter's Board in Redcliffe Village or Denerim.


A group of six refugees is fleeing the darkspawn, and the Chantry would like The Warden to assist them, if possible.

Once the Warden receives this quest, a new location appears on the World Map, marked as Refugees. Travel to the location and fight the darkspawn, which consists of ten Hurlocks (including one Hurlock emissary) and three Genlocks. Once the fight is over (regardless of how many refugees survived) return to a Chantry representative for a reward.

Note: The reward is not affected by the number of refugees that survive the fight
