Failed Assassination Attempt Inquiry is a war table operation in Dragon Age: Inquisition.

Acquisition Edit

Available following Demands of the Qun if the Inquisitor chooses the alliance with the Qunari and after completing Wicked Eyes and Wicked Hearts or Here Lies the Abyss.

Operation text Edit


Congratulations on this new alliance, the first of its kind. To demonstrate the depth of our intention, we must inform you of events in Denerim that may be related to the threat posed by Corypheus.

Assassins attempted to kill (king/queen or both). The attempt was clumsy, using easily prevented fire magic, and the authorities in Denerim treated the event as the action of a lone madman. We believe the action may be tied to Venatori operations, and that further investigation is worth pursuing.

Our operatives stand ready to lend assistance in this matter, but note that tensions in Denerim remain high.

We will move as ordered.


Advisor suggestions Edit

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

Josephine - 0:15:00 Edit

I can smooth things over so the Ben-Hassrath can investigate openly. The time this takes will be saved if they can operate freely.

Leliana - 0:15:00 Edit

We do not have time to gain the Fereldans' trust. The Ben-Hassrath must act in secret.

Cullen - 0:12:00 Edit

We should order the Ben-Hassrath to investigate immediately. We can always apologize to Ferelden later.

Result Edit

Josephine Edit


Thank you for procuring official permission from the Fereldan authorities to investigate. Although the delay was unfortunate, the authorities had leads of their own they were willing to share once it was clear we were acting as allies.

We have followed the trail of the assassins to South Reach. The Fereldan authorities provided us with horses so we might close in on our quarry.

We are sending information on the magic used by the enemy for further study.


Leliana / Cullen Edit


Our operatives followed purchases made by the assassins, including passage to South Reach.

Although we attempted to avoid hostilities with Fereldan authorities, their agents crossed our path, and matters became violent. We managed to convince the Fereldan forces that we sought the same enemy without deaths on either side, but the effort cost time.

We are sending information on the magic used by the enemy for further study.
