The Black Vials are six small glass phylacteries that can be found around Ferelden. The area around them is unnaturally cold. Dark shapes swirl around a slip of paper within each vial. When the Warden takes a vial, the glass fractures and releases a hostile revenant. Upon their death, each revenant drops a scrap of vellum that updates the Codex entry: The Black Vials.

Walkthrough Edit

The vials may be taken in any order.

  • Quametha Kagat, The Fourth Corpse Walker:
    • Glass phylactery in the far bottom room on the right side of Lower Ruins in Brecilian Forest. The glass phylactery is directly in front upon entrance. It resembles a pile of filth with two vases sticking out of it.
  • Shamas Goodson, The Fifth Corpse Walker:
    • Glass phylactery in Werewolf Lair, the top left room in the middle of the map.
  • Anton Wither, The Sixth Corpse Walker:
    • Glass phylactery in one of the Back Alley random encounters in Denerim. In this encounter you start on a stone platform up a set of steps and the glass phylactery is on the platform with you. It is the same encounter during which bandits trap one of your party members by dropping a portcullis that must be lifted using a lever. (This vial can only be found during this one and only random encounter, so be sure to pick it up!)
