Haunted is an Act 3 companion quest for Varric in Dragon Age II.

Acquisition Edit

This quest can be obtained by speaking to Varric in The Hanged Man after completing On The Loose and A Small Problem.

Walkthrough Edit

Go to Hightown and enter Bartrand's Estate (the quest description says you must go at night but you can go in the estate during the day).

Make your way through the house until you can go upstairs and into the center room. After a cut scene you will be faced with an Ethereal Golem (+2050xp upon defeating). He will disappear after a short time and spawn several shades which you will have to defeat before he becomes attackable again. When the Golem attacks, the floating paraphernalia will intermittently strike nearby team members, doing little damage but knocking them back and potentially interrupting moves.

After the battle you find a piece of the idol. You will then have an option to let Varric keep it or get rid of it.

  • If you let him keep it, this will give him three extra rune slots on Bianca, and will result in Friendship small Varric: friendship (+10),Rivalry small Anders: rivalry (+5), Rivalry small Sebastian: rivalry (+10).
  • If you make him get rid of it, you'll be able to give it to Sandal who will make a Primeval Lyrium Rune out of it. The latter option will result in Friendship small Anders: friendship (+5),Friendship small Sebastian: friendship (+10).

Denying Varric the relic results in Rivalry small Varric: rivalry (+10) (but it may also not affect your relationship with him at all). Given the right dialog options, such as showing concern for Varric can lead to Friendship small Varric: friendship (+10).

Also after the battle, the room at the top of the stairs on the right, which was previously locked, will unlock. Visit it to loot a master difficulty chest (40 cunning to open - 200 XP) and examine a ledger near the bed which will trigger a cutscene with Varric.

Rewards Edit

  • 2050 XP (for the fight) and 1200 XP (quest completion)
  • Rock Band looted from the Ethereal Golem
  • Acquisition of the quests Closure and An Anniversary

There are two possible outcomes:
