Destroy Darkspawn Outbreak is a war table operation in Dragon Age: Inquisition.

Acquisition Edit

Available upon completion of Defeat Marquise Bouffon, providing the allied Grey Wardens forces are still able to fight. As the fifth and final operation in this set of five war table operations, having this operation available to you indicates you have maximized the survival and usefulness of the Grey Wardens forces.

Operation text Edit


Our investigation of the late Marquise Bouffon's activities explains her sudden interest in illegal mining: the marquise was searching for ancient artifacts, as a secret agent for the Venatori. It is fortunate that we stopped her, but her mining operation has endangered us nevertheless. Darkspawn have begun to emerge from the mines again, not just hurlocks but ogres as well.

Our Grey Warden allies insist that this force must be destroyed utterly, no matter the cost, lest the innumerable hordes of darkspawn pour forth from the Deep Roads to join their brethren.

It has been an honor to serve, Your Worship. We await your orders.

Lieutenant Suzanne Cloche-sec

Advisor suggestions Edit

Note: The time listed is the time it takes with no agents.

Josephine - 24:00:00 Edit

We cannot leave this threat to the Wardens. We must acquire reinforcements from allies in the area.

Leliana - 24:00:00 Edit

We have sappers who can collapse the tunnels and bring most of the mountain down on the darkspawn.

Cullen - 19:12:00 Edit

If we trust the Wardens in nothing else, trust them to kill darkspawn. They know what to do.

Results Edit

Josephine / Leliana Edit


It is my duty to inform you that the Inquisition force led by Lieutenant Cloche-sec, along with the allied Grey Wardens, fell in battle with the darkspawn. The mines have been collapsed. Cloche-sec and the Wardens did their duty to the end.

In service,

Cullen Edit


The mines have been collapsed, and the darkspawn in the area utterly destroyed. For a time, it looked as though we might have to join them. The Grey Wardens fought with unmatched bravery to clear us a path before the entire mountain fell upon us all.

The surviving Wardens are remaining in the area to continue patrolling for darkspawn. I thank the Maker for giving you the wisdom to spare the Wardens and bring them to our service.

While we fought the beasts deep in the mines, we uncovered what Marquise Bouffon must have been looking for. I have sent it to the Inquisition for safekeeping. May it serve us better than it would have served the treacherous marquise.

Yours in service,
Lieutenant Suzanne Cloche-sec
