On Broken Knees is a side quest in The Descent DLC for Dragon Age: Inquisition.

A Warden who heard her Calling left behind a diary describing her final experiences in the Deep Roads. Her journal included a hand-drawn map emphasizing a landmark she discovered. This could prove useful.

Acquisition Edit

A note can be found inside of the first Sacrificial Gate of Segrummar in the Darkspawn Warrens, as per the quest Sacrificial Gates of Segrummar. Reading it will trigger the quest.

Walkthrough Edit

In the Ruins of Heidrun Thaig, past the first bridge with a supply cache but before the first gate, the Inquisitor should keep to the left until they see a lower ledge they can jump on. By following the path on the ledge and, if the quest is active, eventually they will reach a small camp where the Inquisitor will remark that the area is similar to Ailsa's sketch.

    Unique Sword
    This blade is curiously weighted, making it difficult to stop a swing in progress. A reminder, perhaps, that once the Ancestors have spoken, their word is final.
