The Heart of the Still Ruins is a side quest in Dragon Age: Inquisition.

Lucanus dropped a strange stone while searching the Still Ruins. Its distinct pattern suggests it could be a keystone of some kind. Perhaps there are more.

One of the shards found in the ruin.


The quest is acquired by picking up any of the keystones in the Still Ruins (not only the one dropped by Lucanus).


  • Collect 5 keystones: one is dropped by Lucanus, and the other 4 are found in the vicinity
  • Unlock the sealed gate at the top of the stairs, and enter the Inner Sanctum
Note: The glowing staff in this chamber is related to the A Stranger Rift in the Ruins quest.


  • 242 XP
  • 80 Influence


  • The keystones look something like the Shards and use the same sound effect, implying a similar origin.
