Rumors of the Sulevin Blade is a war table operation in Dragon Age: Inquisition.


This scouting operation is part of the Ruined Blade side quest in Emprise du Lion.

Operation text Edit

A pair of elves was found deceased in Emprise du Lion, victims of the region's unnatural weather. Evidence found at their camp suggests they had discovered the resting place of the Sulevin Blade, a sword from Dalish legend. The blade was lost during the Second Age, and besides being a valuable historical artifact, it's said to be a formidable weapon. The Inquisition's agents should be able to trace the elves' trail back to the blade's location.

Recovering the sword could impress potential Dalish allies—particularly if we are willing to share information on it.

Should the Inquisitor be a Dalish elf, the last paragraph of the operation text is instead:

To see the sword recovered by one of their own—and used in service of the Inquisition—would no doubt inspire our Dalish allies.

Results Edit


The Sulevin Blade is said to be one of the finest weapons ever crafted. The tale of its loss is rarely shared, but we're all impacted by Corypheus's madness. If the sword may serve the Inquisiion, then it serves us all.

During the Exalted March on the Dales, a band of elves used the sword to spill innocent blood. They hoped to power magic to use against their enemies. Instead, they were punished for their savagery. Spirits reached beyond the Veil and struck them down. As for the blade, to this day it lies broken on the cursed land. None may touch it without meeting the same fate as those elves.

The sword is real, that I know. As for the tale, I cannot say. Stories told to frighten often involve a fair deal of embellishment. That doesn't mean something real did not inspire it.
