King Alistair is an Act 3 side quest in Dragon Age II.

This quest is available if you select the Hero of Ferelden or Martyr pre-built histories within Dragon Age II. This quest also appears when starting a Dragon Age II game with an imported Dragon Age: Origins game in which Alistair was made king.

Acquisition Edit

This quest is received after the completion of On the Loose via a letter to Hawke found on the Writing Desk at the estate.

Walkthrough Edit

After receiving the quest, head to the Viscount's Keep. A cut scene plays with Knight Commander Meredith berating Alistair over three mages who escaped to Ferelden.

After Hawke is introduced to Alistair, if Aveline is in the party, she will kneel before Alistair, provoking a wry remark from him.

If Isabela and/or Anders are present, Alistair will note they're familiar.

If the imported save file is a Dalish Warden and if the boon given at the ending was land for the Dalish, Merrill will have some lines as well; if the imported save file isn't from the Dalish Warden, Merrill will still have a line concerning the Circle of Magi. Alistair admits his thoughts about mages are different than the templars. Hawke can ask about trying to take over the circle, on which he replies that's not that easy. Anders responds it's worth trying, when Fenris responds it's worth keeping unchanged.

Alistair will then discuss a threat to Ferelden from Orlais, and will tell Hawke to keep Kirkwall safe.

Result Edit

  • Finishing the dialogue completes the quest and a codex entry for Alistair is added.
  • When Alistair asks you how to fix the city, replying "I could be viscount," results in Friendship small Varric: friendship (+10).

Trivia Edit

  • Alistair says, "Swooping is bad," when he first meets Morrigan in Dragon Age: Origins. This line reappears during the conversation with King Alistair if you choose to investigate and follow the dialogue path "What happened with Orlais?" -> "Why is that?"
  • If you import from a save where Alistair and the Warden had a threesome with Isabela, she will have an amusing dialogue. If he didn't, he will simply state that she looks different, probably referring to her character design, to which she answers, "Don't we all?"
  • If you have Anders in your party, he will ask if Alistair was a Grey Warden, he'll reply, "That's the rumor," and then turn the same question to Anders, to which he replies, "That's the rumor." Alistair finishes with "Well, we certainly get around."
  • Bann Teagan will remark that the Warden has returned to Denerim. If you import a save in which Alistair is married to the female human noble, he will affectionately refer to her as "the old ball and chain." If he is married to Anora but still has the female Warden as a mistress, Alistair will reply that they'd best not let the Queen know. If the Warden was male or was not romancing Alistair or Alistair did not marry Anora but still has the female Warden as a mistress, Alistair will remark "You don't need to be so formal. He/She has a name, you know."
