Solasan is an ancient elven temple located in the Forbidden Oasis region of the Western Approach in Orlais. The entrance to the Temple and passageways within can only be opened using the shards revealed by the Ocularum.

Background[edit | edit source]

Three doors in the main chamber of the temple are locked by shards; one for fire, one for cold and the other for spirit. Approaching the doors unlocks the quests listed below respectively. Each quest is completed upon opening all three chamber doors by following each path to its end.

An inscription taken at the temple doors in the Forbidden Oasis, followed by a translation.
The writing is shaky and uneven, as though the writer labored to complete the task:

Emma solas him var din'an. Tel garas solasan. Melana en athim las enaste.
Arrogance became our end. Come not to a prideful place. Now let humility grant favor.
