Continuing Her Predecessor's Work is a war table operation in Dragon Age: Inquisition.


After In Your Heart Shall Burn and two Inquisitor's Path quests, speak with Helisma Derington in Skyhold's library.

Operation text Edit

A neatly filed request form, copied in triplicate and delivered to the appropriate parties:

- An assortment of flora from southern Ferelden and eastern Orlais, including several uncommon varieties. See attached list.
- Tissue samples from several common herbivores. See attached list.
- Access to an accurate map of southern Thedas and records salvaged from Haven.

- My predecessor, Minaeve, was studying alterations in feeding and migration patterns in several species, following the appearance of the Breach.

Her work was left incomplete; I would finish it.

Adviser suggestionsEdit

Josephine - 1:00:00 Edit

I can contact the University of Orlais to see if they have additional materials to aid Helisma's research.

Leliana - 0:48:00 Edit

It would be faster to purchase the missing items than hunt them down. My agents can seek reliable sources in Val Royeaux.

Cullen - 1:00:00 Edit

Our soldiers can gather any outstanding items. It will double as a training exercise for our newer recruits.

Result Edit

All advisors Edit

A formally submitted report:

Current Progress and Findings:
Certain herbivores appear especially sensitive to disruptions caused by the rifts. Migration and mating habits have been impacted. Ramifications on predator behavior apparent, but warrant further study.

Additional Notes:
In studying alterations in animal behavior, I have uncovered something the Inquisition's soldiers may find useful. Human behavior is similarly unpredictable.

I will continue to pursue this line of research until otherwise notified.
