Dragon Age: Inquisition – Val Royeaux Side Quests

by Prima Games Staff

There are only two side quests that begin in the Val Royeaux area, but both of them give you the option to add party members to your growing group of mages, rogues and warriors. Both quests can be done fairly early in the game, so your level shouldn’t have a big impact on whether or not you can complete these quests.

A Friend of Red Jenny

Description: The strange message, delivered via arrow, said there is an enemy of the Inquisition waiting to strike Val Royeaux. It said to search the market, café, and docks for things that are red.
Starting NPC: Arrow message
Requirements: Address the clerics in Val Royeaux
Reward: Party Member – Sera (Rogue)

Quest Objectives:

  • Examine the message
  • Search by the dock
  • Search in the café
  • Search the upper market
  • Fend off the guards

When you first reach Val Royeaux, head toward the main square to initiate a cut-scene with Mother Hevara and the Templars. When you attempt to leave the square after the cut-scene concludes, an arrow with a note attached to it is shot in your general direction. Read the note to begin the quest.

Search for red satchels at each of the three locations marked on your map. If you have trouble reaching the upper market area, head to the southwest side of the market to find the path. With all three satchels located, use the world map to travel to the Secluded Courtyard. Defeat the small group of enemies that attack, then head through the door to the west to initiate another cut-scene. Defeat one more group of enemies after the cut-scene, then Sera will join your party.

The Imperial Enchanter

Description: Vivienne de Fer, the First Enchanter of Montsimmard, has extended an invitation to her salon at the chateau of Duke Bastien de Ghyslain.
Starting NPC: Circle Mage Messenger
Requirements: Address the clerics in Val Royeaux
Reward: Party Member – Vivienne de Fer (Mage)

Quest Objective:

  • Attend the salon

Speak with the Circle Mage Messenger standing in the middle of the main market in Val Royeaux to begin this quest. Use the world map to travel to the Ghyslain Estate to initiate another cut-scene. This cut-scene determines whether or not you’ll allow the mages to assist you. Choose to allow the mages in and you’ll be able to add Vivienne to your party and automatically be transported back to Haven.
