The Tower of Ishal was constructed by the [[Tevinter Imperium]] along with the rest of the fortress of [[Ostagar]] during the height of its power as a fortification against the [[Chasind Wilder|Chasind]] of the [[Korcari Wilds]]. The tower was named after the [[Archon]] that ordered its construction. After the [[First Blight]] the whole of Ostagar, along with the tower, was abandoned and fell into disrepair but the tower still stands strong several hundred years later. A [[Tower Guard]] claims the tower is dwarven-made.

At the beginning of the [[Battle of Ostagar]], during the [[Tower of Ishal (quest)]], the tower is overrun by darkspawn coming through tunnels beneath the tower. The Warden, along with [[Alistair]], are tasked to enter the tower, reach its top, and light the beacon in order for [[Loghain Mac Tir|Teyrn Loghain]]'s troops to attack the darkspawn horde from behind. After [[Ferelden]]'s defeat at Ostagar, the tower is taken over by darkspawn.

The first floor of the Tower of Ishal can be revisited, as well as the darkspawn-created tunnels beneath the tower, as part of the [[Return to Ostagar (quest)]]. This requires the ''[[Return to Ostagar]]'' [[Downloadable content (Origins)|DLC]]. Note that other floors cannot be accessed as the entrance to the second floor is barricaded.
