- Found at random among merchant's wares, or as loot from Qunari-related enemies and locations, e.g. in and around the Tal-Vashoth Cavern in The Wounded Coast.
- This item is generated in stores or containers upon entering the map where it is located, or upon defeating an enemy. Its attributes are scaled to Hawke's level.
- The player may wish to save the game prior to entering The Wounded Coast, so if the sword does not get generated he/she may reload and try again.
