There is no merchant once the mission begins. Compounded with an excess of valuable items, within the mission, you quickly run out of space to carry stuff. Be sure to hit up a merchant and clear out ALL unnecessary goods before starting this mission.

Being the pack rat that I am, I keep most high value upgrades (a curse be upon those high value slotless equipment), plus high level equipment (seriously DA, equipment five levels higher than my when I attained them?). This means, that even with 75 inventory slots, I had to destroy many low value items in the latter third of the mission.

P.S. Don't forget to hit the merchant after the mission as well! Shadizar666 (Ruck Rules) 01:13, November 30, 2014 (UTC)


the requirements for certain options seem to be wrong or inaccurate, I had 99 admiration and enough proof to successfully accuse Gaspard but chosing that Celine and Briana should reconsile earns Briana an exile? (talk) 00:39, December 8, 2014 (UTC)

You need the Elven locket found in the vault upstairs in the Grand Apartments area of the Servants Quarters that requires 3 halla statuettes to open. Then show to Celene's ladies in waiting to talk to Celene about the elven locket and then show it to Briala for the lovers to reconcile. (talk) 06:59, December 20, 2014 (UTC)

How to deal with the short side/sub quests

A lot of them don't have their own journal entries and are just subordinate to the main quest, so I wasn't too sure how to handle them.--TubbyM0ph0 (talk) 04:17, January 2, 2015 (UTC)

Montbelliard's Ring

I kept the ring and told the noblewoman to keep searching, which completes the quest. I couldn't tell though if completing the quest that way earned any XP or Influence. Confirmation would be appreciated. --Kelcat Talk 07:55, January 7, 2015 (UTC)

Color code

Would it help make the Court approval changes stand out if we color-coded them? Green for positive approval and red for negative. --Kelcat Talk 01:24, January 8, 2015 (UTC)

I was thinking the new approval template could be used. DAIApproval Court Approval 5 While we're on the subject, I was thinking something more could be done to the template to make it stand out. For DA:O, there was red and green. For, DA:II there was red and blue. There really isn't something like that in place in the game itself, so I was wondering if it would benefit to make the text the same color as the icon. Something like DAIApproval Court Approval -10 It's still pretty true to how it's displayed in-game. --TubbyM0ph0 (talk) 02:50, January 8, 2015 (UTC)
Oh, I like that! It would definitely make the numbers stand out better. --Kelcat Talk 03:19, January 10, 2015 (UTC)
I'm going to go through and make this change. I kept getting confused about the approval gains and loses while reading through this and I think that would help a lot. Heidirs (talk) 01:00, February 18, 2015 (UTC)

New Bug

On my first run on PS3 since the recent patch, there appears to be a bug in Halamshiral. When trying to go to the Vestibule from the Ballroom, it will go to a loading screen as normal but when it finishes loading you're back in the Ballroom as if you never even left. Is anyone but me having this?--Dracowrath (talk) 17:24, February 8, 2015 (UTC)

On closer inspection, I realized the problem. For some reason there are two things to target on that door from the Ballroom: Grand Ballroom and Vestibule. You have to carefully aim at the Vestibule part and hit X to go through, otherwise it'll just load the Ballroom again.--Dracowrath (talk) 17:27, February 8, 2015 (UTC)

Gaspard kills Briala

If you choose the third dialogue option after letting Celene die and having Gaspard rule unopposed, Gaspard says to Briala "Your death tonight will bring stability to the Empire." Should it be noted on the page that Gaspard kills her if he rules alone? DRAEVAN13 00:14, March 10, 2015 (UTC)

Reconciling Briala & Celene + Orlesian Banner?

Is it possible to both reconcile Briala & Celene and aquire the Orlesian Banner? The article seems to indicate that it isn't but I wanted to be sure before starting the quest. (talk) 13:52, March 13, 2015 (UTC)

Rogue-Opened Doors in the Solo Areas

I've so far run across two locked doors requiring a rogue to open in the main areas where you can't have your companions with you. Now, I am not a rogue (I'm a mage), and I'm a bit peeved that I can't find a way to get these open (I can't even find where Varrik is hiding as well). I guess I will just keep going forward in the quest and hope I can come back here with a rogue companion later on, but this is quite annoying... Ulithium Dragon (talk) 03:18, April 15, 2015 (UTC)

Some of the companion approval notes are incorrect. To be specific, choosing to implicate Briala (Briala is an accomplice) had Cole greatly disapprove, as opposed to Iron Bull approving. -- (talk) 10:58, April 21, 2015 (UTC)
