The Forest Clearing is a world map encounter when traveling to the Brecilian Outskirts (especially from Denerim). The Warden is ambushed by Werewolves. This happens regardless of the outcome of Nature of the Beast.
- If you give the hold position command when the encounter begins, the werewolf alpha typically does not attack with the rest of the werewolves as a tree is blocking its line of sight.
- There is an interactive campfire in this zone, but it appears to do nothing.
Notable items EditDeathroot
A harmless enough plant on its own, deathroot's thick leaves contain an extract that the Chasind have used to induce hallucinations for centuries. Sufficiently concentrated, it can be made into a deadly poison.
The common name for canavaris, this herb actually has little to do with elves other than being commonly collected and traded to outsiders by the Dalish. It is the primary ingredient in many healing salves.
Use: Chewing elfroot restores a small amount of health, and those with skill can use elfroot to make more potent elixirs.
