The Lost Temple of Dirthamen is an ancient temple dedicated to the elven god Dirthamen. It is located in northeastern Orlais, off the northern coast of the Waking Sea.

Background Edit

The temple is dedicated to Dirthamen, the elven God of Secrets. A revered place of worship long ago, the temple now lay dormant and neglected. Although the temple remains standing, the elements through the ages have weathered away at the foundation allowing for the stone to crumble and the ruin to be flooded.

Dragon Age: Inquisition.

The temple had long been believed lost, until Cillian, an elven mage associated with the Inquisition researched a series of elven glyphs that the Inquisitor found in the Exalted plains. Research suggests that a group of treasure hunters had also located the temple several years prior, though they haven't been heard from since they left to investigate the temple.

A group of explorers were hired by a man named Lord Gretien to find an artifact called Dirthamen's Wisdom. Once there, however, the explorers became haunted by unknown malevolent spirits who drove the men to insanity, eventually turning their weapons upon each other.[1] The Inquisitor can gain access to the Temple of Dirthamen by completing the Runes in the Lost Temple war table scouting operation in Skyhold.

Notes Edit

  • This is one of the few locations that a warrior bash is required to complete a quest. The final veilfire rune can only be accessed using a warrior. If one doesn't have a warrior in the party and chooses to leave and come back with one, all the Red Templars, Arcane horrors and Corpses will respawn.
  • Though not required to complete the quest, a rogue is needed to access some loot stashes.
  • Despite being called the Lost Temple of Dirthamen, there are multiple murals depicting Falon'Din.
