Scattered Glyphs is a side quest in Dragon Age: Inquisition.

There are Ancient Elven glyphs scattered across the Plains that appear to be pieces of a greater message.

Acquisition Edit

This quest is obtained by speaking to Keeper Hawen at the Dalish Encampment in the Exalted Plains. Revealing any of the runes prior to speaking to Keeper Hawen also triggers the quest.

Walkthrough Edit

Find the glyphs and reveal them using veilfire:

  • One glyph is found in the Ancient Baths. After the wall is broken down (or you jump over the railing), walk down to the bottom of the steps. The glyph is along the north wall just before the arches. You need the torch to see it.
The revealed symbols depict a pair of hands cupped around the moon.
The revealed symbols show a hawk and a hare chasing the sun.
  • One glyph is on the opposite side of the hill from the Shrine to Sylaise. Steps near a broken section of wall lead to a collapsed tunnel entrance.
The revealed symbols show what appears to be Dirthamen, the elven god of secrets, on the back of a large crow.
  • One glyph is in the only collapsed building of the open area in the Enavuris region, north-northwest of the Dalish Camp. The glyph is located at the western half pillar inside the ruins.
The revealed symbols show two ravens. One grips a heart in its talons, the other a mirror.

Once all the glyphs have been found, go to the war table to Investigate the Elven Glyphs (costs 5 Power). Completing the operation completes the quest.


  • 512 XP
  • 200 Influence
  • 2 Power



  • The quest states "Power Required 2" once the four glyphs have been found. This seems to simply be a requirement for the quest as the operation, Investigate the Elven Glyphs costs 5 Power at the war table.


  • Elven lore holds that Mythal created the moon. The hawk and the hare are Andruil's sacred animals, and the sun is the father of Elgar'nan. In elven legends, Dirthamen found and subdued two ravens in the Fade: Fear and Deceit. They carried him to his brother Falon'Din.
