Map of the area

The Rocky Road is the location of a random encounter, where elven scouts are defending against darkspawn.

Background[edit | edit source]

This World map encounter occurs when travelling after completion of Nature of the Beast (if the Warden sided with the elves). Upon arrival, a darkspawn assault against an elven scout position will commence.

  • Cleansing Aura is very effective for helping keep the Elven scouts alive.

Notes[edit | edit source]

  • The shrieks can decimate the scouts. It's best to take them out first to save the scouts.
  • The scouts appear to be wearing armor similar to the Ancient Elven Armor Set.
  • This battle is particularly easy if you have Paralysis Explosion. Almost all darkspawn will be affected and due to their low rank, they go down very quickly under concentrated fire (shrieks notwithstanding.) Also, as all genlocks and hurlocks are archers, they will remain in the same spot, making them sitting ducks for AoE like Blizzard or Inferno.
