In Dragon Age: Inquisition, you will come across several Oculara scattered throughout Thedas. Oculara are basically tiny monuments – usually overlooking a large landscape.
Reaching these Oculara will allow you to search the entire landscape in the direction Oculara are facing and discover hidden ‘Shards’.
