Ser Alvard's Missing Sword is a side quest in Dragon Age: Origins - Awakening. It is obtained from the Merchants' Guild Board in the City of Amaranthine. You cannot find the sword if you do not have the quest in your journal.


Many years ago, Ser Alvard had a sword made for him in the Blackmarsh. He asked that it be shipped to the City of Amaranthine hidden in a crate of ordinary goods, but the crate never arrived. Ser Alvard is likely dead by now, but the blade might remain.


  • The sword is found in a crate at the docks behind the Baroness' estate.

The sword may also be dropped randomly after fighting the Avvar Crypt Lord beneath Vigil's Keep in the quest The Wraith's Vengeance.

*It may be worth noting that the sword is NOT in a crate behind the Mansion while you are in the Fade 🤦‍♂️ I spent some time looking for it before I realized why I wasn't finding it! lol
