When Bears Attack is a Chanter's Board quest received in Lothering during Dragon Age: Origins. It is only available after completing Bandits, Bandits, Everywhere.

The villagers are complaining about some Blight-maddened bears to the north of Lothering. One sovereign is offered to anyone who manages to slay the bears.

Walkthrough[edit | edit source]

Exit the village and head northeast. You can find the three black bears standing by the edge of the lake. After killing them, go to Chanter Devons for a reward.

Note that there will also be 13 wolves in the area southwest of the bears if you accepted the Chantry quest A Last Keepsake.

Rewards[edit | edit source]

Money Money, 1 Gold

  • 150 XP

If this is the last quest on Lothering Chanter's Board to be turned in, additionally receive:

Oathkeeper Oathkeeper and 250 XP

Bugs[edit | edit source]

  • If you kill the bandits near the windmill, return to Lothering proper, and then head to the northeast corner of the map, the bears may spawn even if you have not taken this quest yet. Killing the bears first and taking the quest later may confuse the Quest Journal - the bear quest will not be there, but a map marker will indicate where they had been. Moreover, it may prevent the party from leaving Lothering[needs confirmation]. 1.03: the quest can be accepted after killing the bears without difficulty.

Notes[edit | edit source]

In the Quest Journal, this is a subsection of the "Chanter's Board" entry under the "Lothering" tab.
