Search and Rescue is an Act 2 side quest in Dragon Age II.

Acquisition Edit

This quest becomes available from Mistress Selby's Board if you have finished The Underground Railroad by agreeing to help Mistress Selby.

Walkthrough Edit

Docks Edit

Terrie, a mage whom you may have rescued during Act 1, informs you that another caravan of mages from Starkhaven was sent to the Gallows, but it was intercepted and the mages freed. Now one of her friends has been captured by a bounty hunter, and she asks for your help in freeing them (though the quest description says "one of my brothers", the captured mage is actually a woman).

The Wounded Coast Edit

Go to the Wounded Coast. Take the southern path at the first intersection. The entrance to the Bounty Hunter Getaway is at the north-westernmost point.

Bounty Hunter Getaway Edit

The Captured Apostate is in a cave to the east. Battle Bounty Hunters along the way.

Note: There are two traps in the cave: one complex trap after the door frame, before the second fight (30 cunning, 150 XP); one standard trap before the stairs to get to the captured mage (20 cunning, 100 XP). There is also a complex chest in the left-side shack on the ground (30 cunning, 150 XP).

After you talk to the Captured Apostate she leaves.

Return to Mistress Selby for your reward.

Rewards Edit
