Starfang is obtained by bringing the Meteor Metal Ore found during The Crater World map encounter to Mikhael Dryden in Soldier's Peak after the completion of the Soldier's Peak quest. When you speak with Mikhael with the meteor ore in your inventory, you can ask him if he can forge a weapon for you out of it. He gives you a choice between making you a longsword or a greatsword. Choose carefully, as there is only enough ore for one weapon!
Starfang is an incredibly powerful weapon, with great damage, stats, and three rune slots allowing for many possible bonuses. Depending on your luck you might be able to get it extremely early in the game, since it only requires "the Crater" random encounter, and soldier's peak DLC. Soldiers Peak can be played immediately after the battle of Ostagar. When you encounter the meteor you can go to Soldier's Peak and have the weapon forged for no charge, giving you a very strong bonus early game.
Due to the different damage scaling for two-handed weapons on the console versions of the game, the damage value present in-game is 17.00 and not 18.70, as indicated in this article. The latter is specific to the PC.
- You will find the ore even if you do not have the DLC.
- The item will not import over to Dragon Age: Origins - Awakening.
- pc 1.04: Starfang will grade down from Starmetal (Tier 8) to Dragonbone (Tier 7) if it was sold to certain vendors or stored in the unofficial Camp Merchant Chest.
- Starfang in its greatsword version was held by Hawke in a promotional image for the Ser Isaac's Armor DLC of Dragon Age II, even if the weapon doesn't appear in the game.
