Elfroot is a tier 1 common herb in Dragon Age: Inquisition.

Acquisition Edit

Note: Requires Jaws of Hakkon DLC.
Note: Requires Trespasser DLC.

Background Edit

Elfroot was first used by the elves of Arlathan, hence the name. The root gave their medicines particular efficacy, so when the Imperium conquered the elves, the magisters adopted its use and its popularity spread to all corners of the empire.

Elfroot is a hardy plant with large green leaves that grows wild in many places. It's so common that it tends to show up in most gardens and fields, almost like a weed. Unlike a weed, however, most people appreciate having access to the wonderful little plant. The roots can be used with very little preparation. Rubbing some of the juice on a wound, for example, will speed up healing and numb pain. And chewing on a slice of root treats minor ailments like indigestion, flatulence, and hoarse throats.

There are several varieties, but the most useful for herbalists are the Bitter, Gossamer, and Royal Elfroots.

Uses Edit

Notes Edit

  • You can pick 16 elfroots a trip by traveling to Upper Lake camp in the Hinterlands and then going East by South East to Calenhad's Foothold where there is a landmark point named "Thelm Gold-Handed, the Dreamer." All of the herbs are in and around the castle. You then travel to a different region and back to reset the herb spawns. The herbs will always respawn in the same location.
  • Elfroot's medicinal properties were re-discovered in 4:20, likely a joke by the developers that alludes to the code-term that refers to the consumption of cannabis and by extension, as a way to identify oneself with cannabis[1]
