Bugs? Edit

Someone had recorded the following on this page:

(Note: This Quest is currently bugged. If the War Table Operation "A Gift For Bianca" is completed while this War Table Operation is active, Investigate the Strange Chalk Markings will disappear from the War Table, making it impossible to complete.
Recommended to complete "A Gift For Bianca" before starting this questline on the War Table. Completing "A Gift For Bianca" will also automatically put "Investigate the Strange Chalk Markings" on you War Table after it's completed, even if you haven't started "The Cult of Andraste" War Table mission yet (which is the mission that begins this War table quesline). You can leave it there until you've caught the missions up to that point without it getting bugged.)

Can anyone verify these bugs still exist? -- Ness csr (talk) 12:54, January 23, 2015 (UTC)

So this operation can disappear though I'm unclear when/why. A Present for Bianca was never involved in my playthrough. I think perhaps it disappeared after a certain number of operations were completed after it appeared on the war table, but unconfirmed -- Ness csr (talk) 06:53, January 28, 2015 (UTC)

Patch 5 Edit

I believe the bugs related to this are fixed now. Also, a new operation Unmask "Those Across the Sea" is available which should be a follow-up to this one, but unclear on which conditions exactly. --Kewpies signature Kewpies[talk] 19:37, March 3, 2015 (UTC)

Acquisition Edit

It unlocked straight after I got the message that Leliana was done with Gather Coin operation in Haven

  • Influence level didn't trigger it
  • I had completed several operations with Leliana (investigate serault, contact clan lavellan and hard in hightown + some coin gathering)

So my best guess is that you need to complete a certain amount of operations with Leliana, including repeatable ones. --Kewpies signature Kewpies[talk] 21:43, March 10, 2015 (UTC)

Tested twice completing 5 operations with Leliana
  • The Teyrn of Highever / Hard in Hightown 3: Varric's Revenge / Flames of the Inquisition Charger / The Red Hart / The Bog Unicorn
  • The Teyrn of Highever / Hard in Hightown 3: Varric's Revenge / The Red Hart / The Cult of Andraste / The Secrets of Andraste
It is possible there may be other conditions. I didn't use any repeatable missions yet Kewpies did (above) so that doesn't seem to be a factor. Ness csr (talk) 07:40, October 7, 2015 (UTC)
