Quest triggering Edit

Is there something that prevents this quest from being triggered? Can't get it to start, and I'm past Wicked Hearts already. (talk) 19:12, November 30, 2014 (UTC)

Have you done "Here Lies the abyss" (I know it tends to be done before, but theres the option to do it after) and have you destroyed at least 6 or 7 red lyrium nodes to ensure his approval is decent enough? I know I didn't get Viviennes approval and personal quest until I got some better approval after doing Wicked eyes wicked hearts decently. DeakialSig1 00:49, December 1, 2014 (UTC)

It didn't trigger for me either after Here Lies the Abyss, even after closing and restarting the game, but then I left Skyhold and returned there, and the quest was triggered. So, maybe this will help others who encounter this problem in the future. --Kendira (talk) 12:09, September 12, 2016 (UTC)
It appears there is a certain approval threshold (probably +35? though I can't know for sure) which is required for the quest to trigger. Being friends with Varric is a prerequisite to select choices for this quest in DA Keep also. Viktoria Landers 15:20, October 26, 2017 (UTC)

Went inside without Bianca Edit

In walking to the location of another quest I happened upon the location for Valammar. I went and did everything there, killed Carta members & Darkspawn, and raided the vault. Never once saw Varric speaking to Bianca. Did I just screw up this quest? --Revan's Exile (talk) 13:25, December 16, 2014 (UTC)

no <- Kewpies (talk) 13:47, December 16, 2014 (UTC)
there is another quest in there before this one. To begin this, Bianca visits Varric at Skyhold.User signature henioo henioo (da talk page) 14:48, December 16, 2014 (UTC)
Good, I would have been pissed if I screwed it up. --Revan's Exile (talk) 15:13, December 16, 2014 (UTC)
i've added a note now, to prevent any unnecessary cardiac arrhythmia among the wikia readers ;) <- Kewpies (talk) 15:42, December 16, 2014 (UTC)


When I did this quest, inside Valammar, instead of making all my way down to the last door, I just jumped there (a kind of shortcut to avoid the enemies, since I already knew the place and searched all the place previously) and Bianca didn't come with us when it was opened, Varric dialogues had no answer, and at the cutscene, she was invisible. Not even her subtitles or voice were appearing, some other weird stuff happened, but they were probably a consequence of that main issue. Should it be marked as a bug?

Sounds like it Viktoria Landers 15:20, October 26, 2017 (UTC)
