Runes in the Lost Temple is a side quest in Dragon Age: Inquisition. It can be completed alongside God of Secrets.

Acquisition Edit

The quest becomes available upon completion of the war table mission, Investigate the Elven Glyphs, and unlocking the Lost Temple of Dirthamen on the map.

Walkthrough Edit


Map of Temple of Dirthamen, with locations of all the runes, body parts, and explorer remnants.

It is necessary to have a mage, a rogue, and a warrior in your party, as the quest involves lockpicking, activating veilfires, and "bashing" down walls. Note that the one wall to be bashed is required only for this and not God of Secrets and the area does not close on departure. Thus, one can complete everything else and come back with a Warrior later. Opponents will respawn on return.

The runes are only visible under veilfire light. There are 7 runes to collect (locations shown on the map to the right).
