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.


Upon arriving in the Frostback Basin, speak to Professor Kenric about Inquisitor Ameridan.


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. If you have a mage with you they explain 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.

Head inland and towards the destroyed shack. There, an improperly closed fade rift covers a bedroll with a skeleton, surrounded by flowers. During the conversation Solas can offer further insight to the spirit. 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.
