For the elven temple located in this region, see Solasan.

The Forbidden Oasis is a desert location located in the western parts of Orlais.

Background Edit

The Forbidden Oasis lies in the northern stretches of the Western Approach. It contains ancient Elven and Tevinter ruins. Relatively recent history includes the arrival of the "Envers Mining Company" from Val Firmin, who set up shop in the region to mine Serpentstone and Paragon's Luster. The miners were eventually driven mad by the sinister magic that still lingers around the place.

Involvement Edit

The Inquisition travels to the oasis after an auction yields a scroll indicating a connection between this place and the ocularum shards. To activate this war table operation one must first pick up any of the shards found throughout Orlais and Ferelden. After the Inqisition moves to Skyhold, the Venatori also search the oasis for ancient artifacts.

Notes Edit

  • If the location is not scouted and explored prior to reaching Skyhold, Scout Harding will state "I'm afraid we've arrived too late," that the Venatori have already set up at the temple entrance. As a result, the Inquisition will have to fight through them and a Giant, in addition to local wildlife and Fade rifts, before reaching the temple. Harding's dialogue will also change regarding the temple, from stating "this place gives me the creeps," to, "Can't say, haven't been able to get close." The dialogue regarding the mining company remains the same.
  • Defeating the small Venatori groups scattered around the area results in
