Strike a Bargain with Merchant Princes is a war table operation in Dragon Age: Inquisition.

Acquisition Edit

Available upon reaching Skyhold.

It may be necessary to do several war table missions with Josephine before Strike a Bargain with Merchant Princes appears in the upper right corner of the Fereldan war table map. At least four must usually be done to reveal the quest.

Operation text Edit


The allied merchants of the monarchy of Antiva have inquired whether they can assist us in any fashion. They could provide us with some of the finest goods in Thedas, a powerful boost to our prestige, and spread our influence north. The merchant princes will also attempt to ensnare us in contracts so convoluted that we will be eternally tied to them.

If we are interested, we must send our most skilled negotiators. Our diplomats are well respected, and I feel we can come out ahead of the bargain, if we are prepared to commit to it.

Results Edit

A bundle of documents at least fifty pages thick explains the trade agreement the Inquisition has entered into with the merchant princes of Antiva. Josephine has attached a note:


I am more than satisfied with the agreement we reached with the merchant princes. Here is a duplicate if you wish to review it. I would put aside three days and two dozen candles.
