Background Edit

VigilanceLongSwordSmall

Vigilance is the reward from Worked to the Bone. There are three unique crafting items found throughout the land, which are of interest to Wade. For the crafting of Vigilance, Master Wade will require the Eldest Dragonbone, as well as additional materials, namely a Greater Warmth Balm to protect his hands during the forging process, a Grandmaster Flame Rune, a Fresh Dragon Egg and a Diamond. The final item's properties are determined by speaking to Wade and specifying your requirements.

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 has Wade craft Vigilance, it is mentioned in the epilogue.
  • Although Vigilance is absent in Dragon Age II, its model was reused for Glandivalis.

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.
    • A mod that fixes this bug for the PC can be downloaded here (part of this mod).
    • An alternative mod that also fixes this bug can be downloaded here.

Epilogue Edit

The Commander's blade, Vigilance, crafted from the bones of an ancient dragon, was boldly stolen by Antivan Crows. The blade changed hands many times thereafter, with some master swordsmen pursuing the weapon their entire lives. Some claim that this legendary blade has had a life of its own and that its power is steadily growing.
