How to Lure a Dragon is a side quest in Dragon Age: Inquisition.

Frederic wants to concoct dragon bait. He has almost everything he needs, save for two rather specific ingredients.

Acquisition Edit

The quest is acquired after completing Frederic's Livelihood, when he talks more about his research topic.

Walkthrough Edit

Find the necessary ingredients:

Phoenix Tail Feather Icon DAI Phoenix Tail FeatherPhoenix Tail Feather
Plot item
The undamaged tail feather of an adult phoenix.
Other Crafting Material Icon Quillback IntestineQuillback Intestine
Plot item
Slimy, pungent ropes of intestine from a quillback.

These items drop from phoenixes and quillbacks in the Western Approach. The map points out four possible encounter locations:

  • the Giant's Staircase in the heart of the Approach for quillback intestines, and
  • the border of the poisoned Death Drink Springs northeast of the Craggy Ridge Camp, along with two places further to the north-northwest, for phoenix tail feathers.

However, the loot from any of these creatures from any location will do.

Return to Professor Frederic, once the items have been acquired.

Note: It is possible to obtain the ingredients before this quest, if quillbacks or phoenixes have been defeated already.
