Velanna's Joining enables Velanna to become a Grey Warden.


Talk to Seneschal Varel in the Vigil's Keep - Throne Room about her Joining and she will become a Grey Warden. This can be done at any time after she joins your party—although for story purposes it does not make sense until The Righteous Path is completed and she asks to become a Warden.

Bug icon Bug! If The Righteous Path is the last major quest completed and you have yet to complete this quest, this quest will not be triggered.

Also, if the Wending Wood was the last place you visited before the main battle that the Seneschal prompts, she cannot become a Grey Warden unless you travel to Vigil's Keep directly after Velanna joins the party AND another companion's joining quest is open (PC 1.04).
