Measure Veil Strength is a war table operation in Dragon Age: Inquisition.

Acquisition Edit

Unlocked upon activating ten elven artifacts.

Operation text Edit


You have activated a number of the elven artifacts used to detect the magical energies of the Veil. Individually, such readings have been helpful. If we can coordinate measurements of all the artifacts simultaneously, however, I believe we may be able to uncover rifts that may not even have opened yet.

I have drafted a proposal for how we might use Inquisition mages across Orlais and Ferelden to activate these artifacts in a coordinated fashion, if you think that it might be useful.


Advisor suggestions Edit

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

Josephine (24:00:00)

If the Inquisition forces are stretched thin, nobles in the area will happily ensure the safety of our mages.

I can deploy soldiers with the mages to ensure their safety.

Results Edit

The experiment was a success, and these readings are remarkable. By overlaying the relative strength of the Veil over maps of Orlais and Ferelden, I have extrapolated points where small rifts are more likely to develop. This should let us deploy Inquisition forces more wisely while still protecting people who would otherwise be threatened by demons.

In addition, I have located one node of possible interest in the Hinterlands, a very large rift that has not yet opened. It may be worth investigating the area.
