Appearances:

Vigilance is a reward from Worked to the Bone, which begins after an Eldest Dragonbone is found and presented to Wade. The master smith will ask for additional ingredients (Greater Warmth Balm, a Grandmaster Flame Rune, a Fresh Dragon Egg and a Diamond) to help in the creation of a masterpiece. The final item is determined by the choices made during a dialogue with the master smith.

Crafting Options Edit

Unlike other crafted weapons, Master Wade uses a series of questions to assist in the customization of Vigilance. Vigilance can be either a longsword or a greatsword, however the bonuses are the same for either type of weapon.

Trivia Edit

  • If the Warden-Commander has Wade craft Vigilance, it is mentioned in the epilogue.
  • Vigilance is the only greatsword with an asymmetrical design.
  • Vigilance was written into Dragon Age II, but cannot be found anywhere in the game, and remains an unimplemented weapon, along with Starfang. Both longsword and greatsword copies exist.

Bugs Edit

  • There is a common bug that causes this weapon to have the same appearance as Starfang. Disabling the Warden's Keep DLC may allow the weapon to display correctly; doing so, however, causes you to lose the Power of Blood techniques.
  • There is another bug regarding the orientation/animation of the weapon as it is swung. This behavior is specific to the Greatsword version of this weapon - the Longsword version of Vigilance is not affected.
    • A mod that fixes both of these bugs for the PC can be downloaded here (part of this mod).
    • Other mods exist which can fix these problems individually. There is another mod that fixes the latter bug, as well as as fix for Vigilance appearing as Starfang.
