The Qunari attack on Kirkwall at the end of Act II.... was it only a response to Chantry fanaticism or was there more to it that the Arishok failed to mention. Were they justified in their course of action? or was the Arishok overstepping his bounds?

what do you think? --JordanHawker (talk) 17:42, October 16, 2012 (UTC) JordanHawker

Arishok was disgusted by Kirkwall since he arrived there. Petrice, Varnell and other xenophobes like the elven fanatic only boosted his lack of respect for this place. He was always angry, beacuse locals people are not oragnised and united like his people. Lose of clues about his relic was the final element of his desperation. Wouldn't you wish destruction of city, where you met only miseries? Only Petrice and Varnell are xenophobic enough to attack qunari, grand cleric and other priests weren't involved in this and Sebastian always disaproves when Hawke attacks qunari. Arishok was simply agrier and angier and Isabela's actions made him ultimately desperate.

Stupid hornheads! Their rilegious filth didnt let them just leave and go home, so they thought to attack the city and be killed by Hawke and friends because that would not seem like covardly for their qunari friends in homeland. Where ever it is I dont care. Stupid qunari religion. -- (talk) 17:58, October 16, 2012 (UTC)Lord Rahl

The attack wasn't justified as those responsible for previous attacks were already dead however in the Arishok's view he was just completing a mission, hes just a tired solider that wants to go home , its like saying is Hawke killing a mass amount of mages and templars justified despite them 'just following orders'and cutting down a good amount of the dragon population just because a mine owner wanted to make money --Halisme (talk) 18:13, October 16, 2012 (UTC)

Of course he wasn't justified. I'm not arguing that Chantry fanaticism is right, but when it's a Chantry stronghold it's not really the Qunari's place to judge. The argument that The Qun is any less fanatical is simply inaccurate, as we find out when approaching the Keep, the Qunari gather the populous - especially the nobles - somewhere and force them to convert to the Qun, if they do not... the die.
