What Yet Lingers is a side quest in the Jaws of Hakkon DLC for Dragon Age: Inquisition.

A mysterious island in Frostback Basin may yield clues to the region's past.



In order to get to the island, the Inquisitor must use the boat belonging to the fisherman, Arvid Rolfsen. He will inform you that the island belongs to the Lady of the Skies and that the Avvar avoid it. He says he can only allow the use of the boat as long as the Inquisitor gets permission from Thane Svarah Sun-Hair. Head to Stone-Bear hold and speak to Svarah Sun-Hair. She will grant you Guest status, which grants use of the boat.

Take the boat to The Lady's Rest, the island where Professor Kenric believes holds information about Inquisitor Ameridan. There, a few of the party express unease at the number of spirits that haunt the area. Dorian explains that the spirits are influencing minds, drawing sorrow from the living that come to the island. They will not attack you, however, so explore the island to find clues.

In the tent near the dock, there is a chest and a letter.

Letter Found near Many Corpses

The Barbarians are afraid to go to this island. I can see why, with all the spirits, but it's completely safe. I was out there myself for a good half hour, and the spirits never bothered me.

Steal one of the Avvar boats and set up a camp. This route will bypass all the taxes, and with Avvar and spirits all around, nobody in their right mnd will track us here.

I know how you feel about demons, but trust me. This is completely safe. Peaceful, even. All you have to do is relax on that island and wait for goods to come your way.

It's completely safe.

Head inland and towards the destroyed shack. There, a improperly closed fade rift covers a bedroll with a skeleton, surrounded by flowers. Also in the shack is the Codex icon DAI Codex entry: Unfallen Shack. Open the fade rift and a spirit speaks to you.

When the conversation with the spirit is done, loot the skeleton. This gives Bane of Red Crossing icon Heartstring Bow, Ameridan's Orders, and the ability Aegis of the Rift which allows the Inquisitor to create a shield that deflects enemy projectiles.

As you head head back, Hakkonites have landed and bar your path to the boat. Dispose of them and return to Professor Kenric to inform him about what you discovered.

As you explore The Lady's Rest you can hear Telana speaking what one can assume are her last words.

This blood... my blood? No, I can't... Ameridan... Ameridan, why?

I can't... not without...

Vhenan... I'm... dreaming...

Sleep. I need to... I must find you...

No, no, no.
