Memories of the Grey is a companion quest for Blackwall in Dragon Age: Inquisition.

Blackwall possesses maps that chart old Warden camps and outposts throughout Ferelden and Orlais. The Wardens who abandoned these camps may have left behind artifacts of interest to Blackwall.


After Blackwall has been recruited, speak to him at either Haven or Skyhold. During the first non-cutscene conversation he will automatically offer the quest.


The artifacts are always hidden in plain sight, using the search feature is the only way to acquire them. Ten artifacts are spread across 5 regions, and can be found at the following locations:


Storm Coast[]

Fallow Mire[]

Western Approach[]

Emprise du Lion[]

  • Joining Chalice – found on an altar in Valeska's Watch.
  • Grey Warden Armor – also in Valeska's Watch; found in the same room as the landmark.


Finding both artifacts in the Hinterlands, the Fallow Mire and on the Storm Coast yields:

  • 44 XP
  • Influence 40

Finding both artifacts in the Western Approach yields:

  • 128 XP
  • Influence 80

Finding both artifacts in Emprise du Lion yields:

  • 331 XP
  • Influence 150


  • DAIApproval.png Blackwall Greatly Approves each time an artifact is found if he is in the active party.
  • If Blackwall is not in the party when an artifact is recovered, DAIApproval.png Blackwall Approves the next time he is spoken to in Haven or Skyhold. He will also state how he would have liked to be present when the Inquisitor had found the artifact.


  • Prior to Blackwall's companion quest Revelations, Blackwall will make comments such as: "Good find."; however, his dialog will change afterwards to comments such as: "It feels good to be helping the Wardens, even after everything."
