East Road Bandits is a side quest in Dragon Age: Inquisition.

Walkthrough Edit

Note: This quest is part of one series, surround the lyrium smuggling in Hinterlands, along with Deep Trouble and The Mercenary Fortress. See Grand Forest Villa page for further information.
Note: The East Road Bandits is also part of a larger, unmarked side quest to help the people of the Hinterlands. See Corporal Vale's character page for further information.

The map will be marked with locations for three groups of enemies, which need to be found and dispensed with to complete this quest. The groups consist of Outlaws and Outlaw Archers; the last group also has an Outlaw Enforcer.

At the location of the second bandit group, two letters can be found. They are not codex and are therefore displayed in the Gallery below. They are:

Once all bandits have been eliminated, the quest completes.

After dealing with the last group, the Inquisitor can claim a nearby camp as part of Holding the Hinterlands. For extra XP, locate the codex entry: An Unsigned Letter in the Hinterlands in the camp site, which explains why this area was overrun with "fake bandits."

After completing the quest speak to Belette again, and she will mention that Corporal Vale will be glad to hear of the news. Upon speaking to her, if recruited, DAIApproval Cole approves, even if not in the party.
