See Tower of Ishal (Quest) for a walkthrough of the Dragon Age: Origins quest - this article is about the location.

The Tower of Ishal is a location in Ostagar. It is to play a vital role in King Cailan's stand against the darkspawn.


The Tower of Ishal was constructed by the Tevinter Imperium along with the rest of Ostagar during the height of its power as a fortification against the wilders 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.
