The Lone Warden is a companion quest in Dragon Age: Inquisition, where the Inquisitor can recruit Blackwall.

One of Leliana's agents reported a man, calling himself Blackwall, dressed in full Grey Warden regalia and last seen travelling through the Fereldan Hinterlands. With so many Wardens disappearing in the wake of the Divine's death, this Blackwall should be questioned.

Acquisition Edit

Automatically triggered after the main quest The Threat Remains.

Walkthrough Edit

Travel to Hinterlands, where Blackwall can be found southwest from the Upper Lake camp. He is on the opposite (west) side of the nearby lake so the player needs to go around it. The Inquisitor will find him rallying a couple of conscripts to fight off the bandits, who will attack shortly afterwards. When talking to him after the fight, he offers to join the Inquisition.

Note: Additionally, you can stop at the Crossroads beforehand and speak with a man named Giles, leaning against the path wall between Vale and Whittle, who will give you some information on what Blackwall's been up to and where he was last headed.
Note: Though not a codex, there is a letter found on the body of one of the bandits which provides some background on his story. It can be seen in the Gallery below.

Notes Edit

Bugs Edit

  • After the fight with the bandits, the combat overlay may stay up during the follow-up dialog with Blackwall, preventing any dialog options from being chosen. This seems to be unfixable, and an earlier save must be loaded (unconfirmed - PC, Xbox One).
  • When going to the location of the Grey Warden the graphic card might crash every single time, seems unfixable (unconfirmed-PC).
