The Storm Coast is a rainy coastal region in Ferelden located in the northwestern most part of the country.

Background Edit

Ancient dwarven ruins dot the landscape from a long abandoned time. Prior to the First Age, the dwarven people maintained a sizeable presence on the coast. Mining guilds were drawn to the area's then-plentiful mineral deposits.[1]

Built into the cliffs of the Storm Coast, the subterranean port at Daerwin's Mouth once connected the dwarven thaigs to the Waking Sea. In addition to increasing trade between the dwarves and their allies in the Tevinter Imperium, direct access to the Deep Roads meant diplomats from Orzammar could visit the port without fear of losing their "stone sense." The site thus became a popular meeting place for ambassadors of the two nations.[2]

All dwarven activity ceased when darkspawn incursions forced the Deep Roads to be sealed, hence severing the region from Orzammar.[3] After the dwarves retreated back into Orzammar the port fell into disuse. At least, all reputable use of the port ceased —bandits, smugglers, and pirates are known to still use the various caves and waterways along The Coast, including Daerwin's Mouth itself, for their own personal gains.[4] But that hasn't stopped the region from boasting more than its fair share of tragic tales. If all are to be believed, rich merchant ships blanket the depths due to the follies of their proud captains.[5]

The large statue situated at Morrin's Outlook once served as a marker for ships coming to trade with the dwarves. Beyond an assumed connection with the great port at Daerwin's Mouth, nothing is known of the statue's namesake.[6]

Sometime later the Blades of Hessarian made their way to The Coast; they are an ancient secret society who believe they serve Andraste and were chosen to bring her judgment upon the weak and the corrupt. The order was founded, according to their tales, by the Tevinter slave Trefir, who returned to the lands of the Alamarri bearing the Sword of Mercy. Since then, the Blades followed the one who bore the sword with unquestioning loyalty, as he or she was considered to have been chosen by Andraste.[7]

The Storm Coast is a sparsely-populated stretch of shoreline along the Waking Sea. Ancient dwarven ruins—abandoned since the Divine Age—still line the coast, their architects long forgotten.

We are the sword, not the hand that wields it. If they’re worthy, let them come with the Mercy's Crest.

The Storm Coast has become host to a troublesome group of religious inspired bandits, the Blades of Hessarian. There have also been reports of darkspawn sightings in the area[8], and for some reason a number of boats with Templar Order insignia have washed up along the shoreline. In the mean time Inquisition soldier's have gone missing allowing for the Inquisitor to look into their disappearance.

The option to recruit Iron Bull and his Charges becomes available almost immediately after arrival; as well as having the option to recruit the Blades of Hessarian as agents for the Inquisition. The Inquisitor can gain access to The Coast by completing the Scout the Storm Coast war table operation in Haven or Skyhold.

Note: The western most section of the region is only accessible through a gate that is locked until the side quest Red Water is acquired; this, in turn, requires that the Inquisitor be at or above level 16, and have completed the war table operation Red Templars on the Storm Coast. The gate can be found north by northwest from the Driftwood Margin Camp.

Notes Edit

  • When traveling about the Storm Coast the Inquisitor will witness a scuffle between a Giant and High dragon. This is the only opportunity to see a giant on the Storm Coast. The fight immediately initiates upon wandering into the region; regardless of where you are at in the zone. It is entirely possible to not see the squabble between the two and have Codex icon DAI Codex entry: Giant unlock along with it's loot, appear at your feet, once the dragon has taken the the giant down.
  • Rebel Mage from the side quest A Glowing Key can be encountered multiple times wandering about after the quest has been completed.
  • Depending on player choices, it is possible to witness three-way fights involving Red Templars, Darkspawn, and the Blades of Hessarian.

Dragon Age: Inquisition.


  • The confrontation witnessed between the Giant and High dragon early on while exploring The Coast will result in the high dragon flying off in victory. The same high dragon will be encountered on Dragon Island allowing for the Inquisitor to track down Vinsomer and add him to the player's collection counter.
