Vigilance is a reward from Worked to the Bone, which begins after an Eldest Dragonbone is found and presented to Wade. The master smith will ask for additional ingredients (Greater Warmth Balm, a Grandmaster Flame Rune, a Fresh Dragon Egg and a Diamond) to help in the creation of a masterpiece. The final item is determined by the choices made during a dialogue with the master smith.

Crafting Options[edit | edit source]

Unlike other crafted weapons, Master Wade uses a series of questions to assist in the customization of Vigilance. Vigilance can be either a longsword or a greatsword, however the bonuses are the same for either type of weapon.

Trivia[edit | edit source]

  • If the Warden-Commander has Wade craft Vigilance, it is mentioned in the epilogue.
  • Vigilance is the only greatsword with an asymmetrical design.
  • Vigilance was written into Dragon Age II, but cannot be found anywhere in the game, and remains an unimplemented weapon, along with Starfang. Both longsword and greatsword copies exist.

Bugs[edit | edit source]

  • There is a common bug that causes this weapon to have the same appearance as Starfang. Disabling the Warden's Keep DLC may allow the weapon to display correctly; doing so, however, causes you to lose the Power of Blood techniques.
  • There is another bug regarding the orientation/animation of the weapon as it is swung. This behavior is specific to the Greatsword version of this weapon - the Longsword version of Vigilance is not affected.
    • A mod that fixes both of these bugs for the PC can be downloaded here.
    • Other mods exist which can fix these problems individually. There is another mod that fixes the latter bug, as well as as fix for Vigilance appearing as Starfang.
