Sit in Judgment is a side quest in Dragon Age: Inquisition.

Someone being held in Skyhold awaits judgment.

Acquisition Edit

Once the Inquisitor has gained Skyhold, they must leave once and return in order to trigger this quest. After the first prisoner is judged, the quest triggers every time a new prisoner is captured.

Walkthrough Edit

The judgment options and outcomes are outlined below for each prisoner the Inquisitor may capture. Sit on the throne in the main hall to begin a judgment.

Main quest judgments Edit

These judgments become available through completing portions of the main quest line. The specific quest is noted in the description of each judgment:

Magister Gereon Alexius Edit

Unofficial judgments Edit

Storvacker Edit

In the Jaws of Hakkon DLC, after completing Storvacker Caged, Guests of the Hold and Hakkon Wintersbreath, The Inquisitor will be asked by Thane Svarah Sun-Hair to sit in judgment of the Hold-Beast Storvacker, as, in the Avvar manner, she should have perished before allowing herself to submit to capture and imprisonment by the Jaws of Hakkon. The trial takes place in Stone-Bear Hold rather than Skyhold.

Judgment options Approval changes Results
No treats for a week N/A
  • N/A
Declare the trial itself punishment enough N/A
  • N/A, though Svarah Sun-Hair will approve of the Inquisitor's kindness.
Recruit as agent N/A
Tranquility
(Mage only)
N/A
  • This option is negated as Svarah Sun-Hair will immediately reject the punishment.

Non-judgments Edit

The Inquisitor will preside over these events like they would a judgment but they are technically not judgments.

Promotion of Ser Delrin Barris Edit

Completing the war table operation Investigate Man Accused of Abomination will allow you to promote Ser Barris to the rank of Knight-Commander of the Templar Order. He earns his promotion after saving Val Colline from the Venatori, breaking a siege of demons in Ansburg, and stopping a mob from attacking a mage without raising his sword. This is only available if you completed Champions of the Just by making the Templars your allies. It will not be available if you conscript the Templars, or if Ser Barris dies at Therinfal Redoubt.
