Notes[edit | edit source]

  • If the Warden chose to side with the Dalish during Nature of the Beast, either by curing the werewolves or killing them, Hawke encounters a man at the Wounded Coast being harassed by Dalish assassins, who accuse him of being a werewolf. Hawke can side with the elves, which leads to the man being killed, defend the man, upon which the elves attack Hawke, or convince the elves to leave the man alone. The accused man is different based on whether the Warden killed the werewolves or cured them.
  • Hawke convinces the assassin killing the human isn't what her mother would have wanted: Rivalry Isabela: rivalry (+5). Talking the Dalish out of killing the human nets 500 XP and 50 Silver. This option is only available to a diplomatic Hawke.
  • Hawke does not intervene on the man's behalf, resulting in 500 XP, 50 Silver and Friendship Isabela: friendship (+5).
  • Hawke defends the human, which forces a confrontation with the Dalish: Rivalry Isabela: rivalry (+5). This option is the most profitable and yields the most XP, around 100 XP and some random loot for the kills, plus 500 XP and 50 Silver as the man thanks Hawke.
  • Before Hawke begins the dialogue, the Dalish assassin says to the accused man, "Do you even know her name, shem? No? It's Danyla. She's dead." Danyla was part of the Lost to the Curse quest in Dragon Age: Origins.
  • There are two accessible areas that don't show on the map. One in the northern labyrinth and one in the Tal-Vashoth camp to the left before the cave. Both areas are hidden behind bushes and contain normal loot.
  • The name may be a reference to the Sword Coast in BioWare's earlier game, Baldur's Gate, as an answer to Merrill's banter questions about why it is called that and how it got wounded.
