Traps Edit

Notes Edit

  • There are three hidden doors leading to small rooms in the entrance hall which only become apparent when standing close to them: these conceal some minor loot, enemies and a Love Letter involved in the Correspondence Interruptus quest. For their exact location see the red marker in the page's map.
  • As the Dragon Hoard contains a lot of gold, wearing the Dwarven Merchant's Belt may be beneficial.

Companion remarks Edit

Upon entering:

  • Alistair: "Is this an elven place? Did the elves live underground just like the dwaves?"
  • Leliana: "Do you think it's safe to be in here? I thought I heard a wall crumbling off in the distance."
  • Morrigan: "The ruins certainly look Tevinter, but are filled with elven trappings. How very odd."
  • Oghren: "Smells like wet dog in here."
  • Shale: "There are no doubt many traps here. Don't get squished."
  • Wynne: "I wonder what ruin used to be. Is it Tevinter, or elven?"
  • Zevran: "It seems that elves once lived with the Tevinter humans? Or the Tevinter built this place for them? I never heard of such thing."

After hearing a loud growl:

  • Alistair: "I think there's something ahead. Something big."
  • Leliana: "I have a bad feeling about this passageway. Why don't we turn back?"
  • Morrigan: "We should prepare ourselves for combat."
  • Oghren: "You see that? My mother told me never to trust anything that could make turds larger than you are."
  • Shale: "Some manner of large creature lies ahead. Perhaps it will eat you?"
  • Wynne: "Did you hear that? Sounds like... loud breathing..."
  • Zevran: "That smell... we're definitely approaching some kind of lair."
