Blackwall approval exploits Edit
Because I first have to confirm if the darkspawn groups only respawn if the tunnel isn't closed or in general, and because most of these topics aren't even quest related, I've stored them here until the information's confirmed and for the rest a better place is found.
Extra approval from Blackwall can be gained in the Waterfall Cave (the most southern quest mark, up Long River). Whenever you kill darkspawn without sealing the tunnel and move far enough away from tunnel entrance a few darkspawn will respawn. Head to the back of the cave and return to the original location to kill them repeatedly for extra approval.Happens also with sealed tunnel. -- -- You talkin' to me? -- cCContributions -- 22:45, July 15, 2017 (UTC)
- A quicker way (on the PC) to farm Blackwall approval is to quick save at the darkspawn camp near the tunnel at the northern-most camp and reload to fight them again. Works even right after you have sealed the breach. i.e. the darkspawn in the camp respawn every time you reload, so kill, save, reload, kill, etc.
- Unrelated to this quest, Blackwall Slightly Approves also applies if you find and close a tunnel entrance in the lower section of Valammar, in the Hinterlands.
- If you complete the quest section in Valammar and return to the marker point, there will be another Hurlock alpha and the Inquisitor will still comment about closing off the tunnel even though it is already closed.
