Forest Stream is a scripted encounter in Dragon Age: Origins.

Background[edit | edit source]

This encounter occurs after Leliana tells you about Marjolaine. You'll be attacked by an assassin and several minions. After you defeat him, a dialogue cutscene with him occurs, after which Leliana will talk with you which starts the Leliana's Past quest.

Enemies[edit | edit source]

Strategy[edit | edit source]

  • The quickest way to finish this battle is to concentrate all fire on the leader and ignore other enemies, as they will disappear when he is defeated. However, this prevents you from obtaining the experience from slaying his underlings.
  • If you have a mage with Force Field, use it on the leader at the very beginning of the battle, deal with the melee enemies, kill the witch (she won't attack until you go far enough down the path), go down and finish off last mercenary and mabari and only then slay the leader. If not, Paralyze, Misdirection Hex and similar spells will do.
