No Word Back is a side quest in Dragon Age: Inquisition.

Marshal Proulx sent a patrol out in the hopes of reclaiming Riverside Garrison. No word has been heard since.

Acquisition Edit

Speak to Marshal Proulx to learn about a patrol he sent to retake the Riverside Garrison past the broken bridge north of Fort Revasan after completing Undead Ramparts to the West and Another Side, Another Story.

It's also possible to obtain this quest by closing the Fade rift at the Riverside Garrison. Speaking with Marshal Proulx is not a prerequisite and simply blowing the horn completes the quest.

Walkthrough Edit

  • Investigate Riverside Garrison
  • Close the Rift. The Rift is located underground Climb down a set of stairs, and then down a ladder.
  • Blow the Signaling Horn
  • Report back to Proulx

Proulx requests that the patrol be tracked down to find out what happened to them. A wounded soldier can be encountered at the Garrison entrance who will explain that a Fade rift has opened beneath the Garrison. Inside the remainder of the patrol are in battle with several Shades. They can be protected with Barrier to greatly improve their chance of survival. Be wary of bursts of magic from the nearby rift pouring out of the floor.

Once the upper floor of the Garrison is secure, the stairs behind the Garrison will allow the Inquisitor access to basement. From there a ladder can be taken to the chamber beneath the Garrison containing the Rift. Several Undead archers are present on both sides of the chamber, and a number of Wraith will emerge from the rift on approach. Once the first wave of Demons are disposed of, more wraith and an Arcane horror will emerge and attack. Once they are slain, the rift can be closed. With the rift closed, the Horn on the first floor of the Garrison can be blown to signal the all-clear.

  • 80 Influence

  • Riverside Garrison becomes a fast travel point.
