Gather Metals is a repeatable war table operation in Dragon Age: Inquisition.


This mission becomes available after completing the Assault on Griffon Wing Keep side quest.

Operation text

With Griffon Wing Fortress now occupied, the Inquisition has access to the mines in the Gamordan Peaks as well as the busy trading routes in the Orlesian Heartlands. Inquisition forces can be directed to acquire materials used to craft weapons and armor. Trade in the Empire is currently erratic, so access to resources will vary greatly from week to week. Black-market sources also exist, but the riskier the attempt to find resources is, the greater the chance of turning up nothing at all.

Advisor suggestions

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

Josephine - 0:15:00

I have contacts with the dwarves and many merchant houses. It's not as risky as the black market, and should provide good options.

Leliana - 0:15:00

Our agents can comb the black market. We risk finding nothing, but will have the best chance of finding rare metals.

Cullen - 0:12:00

Send our forces out to find what we need and mine it, if necessary. It's the least risky option.



I'm please to report that we were able to make a deal with the merchant guild, after much haggling over how difficult it is to ship anything within the empire right now. The resources have arrived at Skyhold.



My agents were able to secure several sources through the Val Royeaux black market. Whatever they found has now arrived at Skyhold.



A shipment of resources has returned from the Gamordan Peaks, Inquisitor, and has been routed to Skyhold.
