Deep Roads Expeditions: Patrolling the Bastion of the Pure is an expedition table operation in The Descent DLC for Dragon Age: Inquisition.

Acquisition Edit

Available upon completion of The Descent (quest).

Operation text Edit

Scouts report an increase in Sha-Brytol activity in the region. If allowed to continue unchecked, they could present a threat to the Inquisition's interests. Armed patrols could be sent out to keep them from taking over the area completely.

Result Edit
