Some items recovered in battle may later be worth studying.
This quest is triggered after looting a creature research item, which will likely occur at some point during the prologue quest The Wrath of Heaven.
- You can interact with the research table when you first access Haven's chantry. You will receive the XP but the quest will not complete until after your conversation with Cassandra in the war room.
- Later, when you speak with Minaeve about her role she informs you that the items are used to find weaknesses the Inquisition can use against its enemies.
