For the main quest, see Disaster In the Deep Roads (quest).

Disaster in the Deep Roads is a war table scouting operation from The Descent DLC for Dragon Age: Inquisition.

Acquisition[edit | edit source]

The operation is acquired upon reaching Skyhold.

Operation text[edit | edit source]

The Inquisition has received an urgent request for aid from Orzammar. A subterranean earthquake has collapsed one of their lyrium mines and endangered several others. Even worse, tunnel seals preventing darkspawn from overrunning the dwarven-occupied Deep Roads have crumbled, allowing hordes of the enemy to invade. Orzammar is a key provider of the Inquisition's lyrium supplies, and as such, its security is a top priority. The earthquake opened a fissure in the Storm Coast mountains, granting direct access from the surface to the threatened region underground. Constructing a mining lift at the fissure site will permit the Inquisition to transport forces directly to where darkspawn fighting is fiercest.

Advisor suggestions[edit | edit source]

Note: The time listed is the time it takes with no agents.

Josephine - Power Cost: 16[edit | edit source]

Orzammar has the experts we need to build such a lift. At your discretion, I can hire a team of their best construction workers right away.

Leliana - Power Cost: 16[edit | edit source]

I know where to find people who can build a mining lift quickly and safely.

Cullen - Power Cost: 16[edit | edit source]

We need to move quickly to contain them. I'll dispatch my people to the Storm Coast at once.

Results[edit | edit source]

All advisors

A construction team arrived in the Storm Coast mountains and set up a mining lift to transport Inquisition forces from the earthquake fissure's opening down in the Deep Roads.

A report sent by messenger bird:


The mining lift in the Storm Coast mountains will be finished by the time you get here. Anyone going into the Deep Roads should dress accordingly. Don't skimp on the armor and bring the best weapons in Skyhold's arsenal. I also recommend packing plenty of dry rations––––most things down there will be looking to eat the Inquisition, not the other way around.
