Independent Participation

Note: This happens if the Warden acquires A Lord's Trust: The First Task but doesn't fight as Harrowmont's champion or simply completes A Prince's Favor: The First Task before participating. The latter option will also allow the Warden once he/she becomes the champion to dedicate the victory either to the Grey Wardens or Prince Bhelen. This also has an effect on the dialogue of several fighters afterwards.

Bugs Edit

  • xbox360Icon xbox360While fighting in the Proving, you can talk to the proving master after defeating the enemies. There is a small window you can do this in. Once you talk to him, keep choosing dialog #1. You can get caught in an infinite loop and never complete the proving or you can finish the proving and all your companions that you had with you before going into the proving will be standing outside the proving alone. You can not add them back to your party until you go back to your camp.
