For the elven temple located in this region, see Solasan.

The Forbidden Oasis is a desert location located in the western parts of Orlais.

Background

The Forbidden Oasis contains ancient Elven and Tevinter ruins. Relatively recent history includes the arrival of the "Envers Mining Company" whom predominantly operated in the region mining Serpentstone and Paragon's Luster. The miners were eventually driven mad by the sinister magic that still lingers in the area.

The Forbidden Oasis lies in the northern stretches of the Western Approach. A mining company from Val Firmin once set up shop in the region, but moved on when the profits dried up. A mysterious temple lies at the heart of The Oasis, but none have managed to enter it.

—Excerpt from the quest journal.

Notes

  • If the location is not scouted and explored prior to reaching Skyhold, Scout Harding will state "I'm afraid we've arrived too late," that the Venatori have already set up at the temple entrance. As a result, the Inquisition will have to fight through them and a Giant, in addition to local wildlife and Fade rifts, before reaching the temple. Harding's dialogue will also change regarding the temple, from stating "this place gives me the creeps," to, "Can't say, haven't been able to get close." The dialogue regarding the mining company remains the same.
  • Defeating the small Venatori groups scattered around the area results in DAIApproval.png Iron Bull Slightly Approves each time, if he is in the active party.
  • The Forbidden Oasis is one of three areas that do not have a Resources war table operation, with the other two being the Storm Coast and Frostback Basin.
