Dragon Age Inquisition Inner Circle Quests

Your advisors/companions have their own histories, agendas and needs that must be addressed by someone – YOU.

These agendas and needs are referred as Inner Circle Quests. Completing Inner Circle Quests increases your Approval Rating and Romantic Options. Make sure to complete them whenever you can!

Unfinished Business
This is provided by Cassandra at Skyhold.

Ser Torn, the rogue can be found roaming with one of his allies near the Forest Camp. He likes to dodge and keep a safe distance, but you shouldn’t have much difficulty tackling the duo. Leo can be found in Echoback Canyon with three other mages. He’s pretty good with ice-elemental damage.

Ser Hildebrandt can be found in Crow Fens with a small battalion of archers at his side. He wields a strong shield so frontal attacks ain’t even an option. Jepler can be found inside the Hopwood of the Emerald Graves with an army of mages at his side.

And lastly, Gordon can be found near Elfsblood Tower with another mage. He easily the toughest foe you’ll encounter in this Inner Quest.

Promise of Destruction
This is provided by Cassandra at Skyhold.

After unlocking the Castle of Caer Oswin, scale the outskirts of the dungeon until you come across a dungeon door. Defeat the foot-soldiers and loot their bodies to retrieve a key.

Use this key to gain access to castle’s interior. Make sure to enter castle’s courtyard from the west side and use archers in your party to kill enemies below.

Speak to Cassandra after she finds the note followed by taking the stairs on the north side. Fight your way through until you come across a wounded seeker, Daniel. Daniel divulges that all of this is Lord Seeker Lucius’ doing.

After Cassandra puts Daniel out of the misery, take the stairs nearby to come across another courtyard. Lord Seeker Lucius is immune to electricity and spirit-based damage. Wait until he and his allies are in the same place and hit with a hard-hitting AOE attack to kill him.

Guilty Pleasures
This is provided by Cassandra at Skyhold.

This is an extremely simple and linear quest. Simply find Varric and convince him to complete Swords & Shields. That’s it!

The Ideal Romance
This is provided by Cassandra after the completion of Guilty Pleasures.

Travel to Redcliffe to find a poetry book for Cassandra, only to find out that the book has been stolen. Track down the robbers, beat them good, and retrieve the book. Next, travel to Val Royeaux; purchase some flowers from a gardener and search nearby stores for some candles.

Return to Cassandra to kick off your romantic journey with her.

Measuring the Veil
This is provided by Solas at Haven.

Set out on your journey to find the artifact with Solas as an active party member. You’ll come across a warrior named Mihris on your way. Mihris will tell you that she’s also looking for an artifact. You can either ask her to accompany you or leave the area.

Go inside the cave and banish demons within. You’ll find the artifact at the farthest backside of the cave. If you brought Mihris along, you can ask Solas to convince her to hand over the artifact.

All New, Faded for Her
This is provided by Solas at Skyhold.

In order to destroy the summoning circle, you’ll need to destroy four summoning stones. After disrupting the summoning circle, you can either let Solas punish the mages or leave them – neither of two has any consequences.

Meet Solas in Skyhold to have him back in your party.

Seeing Red
This is provided by Varric at Haven.

Varric is horrified at the sight of Red Lyrium, as evident from the prologue mission. He requires you to destroy 12 depositions scattered across the world map.

These locations are marked on your world map so it shouldn’t be hard. After destroying 12 depositions, speak to Varric to complete this Inner Circle Quest.

Well, Shit
This is provided by Varric at Skyhold.

Travel into Valammar while fighting your way through Carta or darkspawns on your way. Go towards the Halls of the Elders and wait for Bianca to open the door. Head inside the area and clear out all the smugglers.

You’ll recover the key to the Lyrium at the end of the fighting. There isn’t much that you need to do next except making a couple of choices. Head back to Skyhold to speak with Varric and try to console him to complete this mission.

A Friend of Red Jenny
This is provided by the strange arrow in the market after addressing clerics in Val Royeaux.

The only hard red satchel to find is the one in the upper market. Take the blue doors on the southwest edge of the market to get to the balcony above.

After finding all three red satchels, travel to the newly-appeared courtyard and fend off attackers. Head inside the door on the west side to meet up with Sera, an elven rogue archer who will ask you to join the Inquisition. Your call!

The Verchiel March
This is provided by Sera in Skyhold.

Travel to Verchiel and clear out all the attackers in the area. Once the battle is over, Lord Pel Harmond will step up and apologize. At this point, you can either allow Sera to kill Lord Pel Harmond or allow him to walk free.

Your choice may earn Sera’s Approval/Disapproval. After arriving back at Skyhold, you can apologize to Sera to make things right again.

A Woman Who Wants for Nothing
This is provided by Sera after being in romance with her.

This is yet another simple mission. You’re required to talk to everyone in Inquisition about what a woman like Sera may like as a gift.

The Imperial Enchanter
This is provided by Circle Mage Messenger in Val Royeaux market.

This is again an extremely linear and straightforward Inner Circle Quest. Travel to Ghyslain Estate and make a couple of choices to complete this quest and expand Inquisition.

Favors the First Enchanter
This is provided by Vivienne at Skyhold.

The first tome is located on a bulwark to the north side of Crossroads – on the main road leading to Redcliffe. Another tome is located in the Shimmer Stone Mine, near Nazaire’s Pass.

The last tome is located inside a burnt house in the Riel Region. Don’t forget to bring Vivienne along for some additional Approval.
