The basement of Vigil's Keep is entered through a doorway directly across from the portcullis leading to the throne room. The basement can be accessed immediately after reclaiming the upper floors. Vigil's Keep has seen many passageways and chambers added to its labyrinthine structure over the years, some of them dating back to the time of barbarians. Some say the halls extend all the way down to the Deep Roads.

Special objects[]

  • Distressed Mabari - Near the Vigil's Keep entrance, there is a wounded mabari that can initiate the Adria's Plight quest.
Note: With a minimum rank 3 survival skill on your main character, you can "comfort the dog," petting her and making her feel better. It will have the same effect as inspecting it, but will yield Ico Appr Heart.png Nathaniel approves (+2).
  • Shrine to Andraste - Located in the prisoner records room. Observing the shrine activates the torch on the wall.
  • Torch - Also in the records room, the torch opens a secret room behind a bookcase.
