Skin Deep is a side quest received from the Chanter's Board in Redcliffe Village or Denerim.

The Chantry would like an enterprising and well-traveled adventurer to collect nine samples of corpse gall. If, by chance, the aforementioned adventurer should find themselves so lucky as to have an abundance of corpse gall, the Chantry will gladly pay extra for them.


Corpse gall will mostly be found on Devouring Corpses and Enraged Corpses. Suggestions for farming include:

Ico Cave Werewolf Lair, during the Nature of the Beast quest.
Ico Village Redcliffe Village, during The Attack at Nightfall quest.
Ico Castle Redcliffe Castle, when investigating the "disturbance".
Ico Tower Circle Tower, third floor in the Great Hall during Broken Circle quest.
Note: If you talk to a Chantry representative while this quest is active and you have more than 9 samples (to complete other quests for example), you will automatically complete this quest. Simply do not accept the quest until you have more than 18 samples, or avoid speaking to a Chantry representative with less than 18 samples, to get the higher reward.

Once the desired amount of corpse gall has been obtained, return to any Chantry representative for a reward.

Note: If you haven't completed the quest before "The Final Onslaught", it'll still automatically count as completed once you've collected enough samples from the undead encounters during the quest.


  • 3DAO goldpiece trans for 9 samples
  • 5DAO goldpiece trans and 500 exp for 18 samples
