Walkthrough[edit | edit source]

Arl Howe is at the Denerim City Gates, and the player must kill him. After recruiting the Ogre and breaking through the barricades blocking the alleys in the western half of the district, you will be confronted by Arl Howe and his entourage. You must kill Howe in addition to the soldiers serving as his body guards, as well as Ser Cauthrien who leads them. Howe also has a lieutenant-ranked Guard Dog with him which can use Overwhelm.

Howe's skills include:
