Haven's Best and Brightest is a side quest in Dragon Age: Inquisition.

Even in these trying times, good help is not so hard to find. Explore Haven and meet some of the Inquisition’s crafting masters.

Acquisition Edit

This quest is obtained automatically after the new Inquisition has been formed during the main quest The Threat Remains and it serves a purpose of introducing the player to the crafting and requisition aspects of the game.

Walkthrough Edit
