Arianni will suggest speaking either with Thrask, a templar at the Gallows Courtyard, or Feynriel's father Vincento, a human merchant in Lowtown. If Hawke meets with Vincento first, then speaking to Thrask afterwards is optional. Note that Hawke cannot speak to Vincento about Feynriel if Thrask has already been questioned about the matter.
If Hawke approaches Vincento first, he will reveal information about Feynriel and likewise mention Samson if Hawke is a mage (or Bethany is in the party) and the special dialogue option to prove yourself as a friend to apostate runaways is selected. An aggressive Hawke can threaten him for the same results. Selecting the diplomatic option ("Make up for your neglect") results in Merrill: friendship (+10).
Speaking to Thrask provides additional friendship/rivalry opportunities along with the tip about Samson:
- "I want to help Feynriel."
- "Feynriel is a menace."
- "Tell me about Feynriel."
- No effect
Dialogue choice 2:
- "The city guard might help." (Aveline required)
- "Can I assist you?", "And you don't need help?", "Tell me right now."
- No effect
Lowtown (Night) Edit
Samson says that he couldn't help Feynriel since the boy was unable to pay for his passage. An aggressive Hawke can threaten Samson, or a sarcastic Hawke can bribe him with 50 , but the diplomatic option provides the same information. He tells Hawke that he sent Feynriel to see someone else at the Docks.
Docks (Night) Edit
Upon entering Arthuris's Private Dock, the party is ambushed by a group of slavers. There are three (3) simple traps on the main floor, requiring 10 cunning to detect / disarm for 50 XP per trap.
After defeating the slavers, Hawke walks in on a mage in mid-transformation to an abomination. It is Thrask's daughter Olivia, as Hawke discovers from the evidence left behind. There are two (2) simple traps in this room, requiring 10 cunning to detect / disarm for 50 XP per trap.
Be sure to loot the area thoroughly before leaving, as Hawke is unable to return.
When confronting Danzig, all dialogue choices ("I just want to talk.", "Pay for me?", "Give me Feynriel!") will lead to combat and have no approval changes for companions. However, if you have Fenris in your party you choices are as follows.
Danzig drops over 3 along with a map directing Hawke to the Slaver Caverns at The Wounded Coast. There is a Standard Chest to loot here, so you might want to bring a rogue with a cunning level of 20 or higher.
Slaver Caverns Edit
The Slaver Caverns are located southwest of The Wounded Coast map entrance, in the south-central area. A Spindleweed node and Deep Mushroom can be found within. The Alchemist's Protective Handguards can also be found in an unlocked chest. For their locations, see the map.
- "I'll risk that." Triggers fight.
- "Let's work something out." Triggers fight.
- "I don't need to step." Hawke throws a dagger, killing Varian. Triggers fight. (only available for a rogue Hawke)
- "Varric, help me out."
If Varric's help is requested and Varian is not killed, Hawke receives 3 .
- "Do what you think is best."
- "I have friends in the Dalish"
- "Go to the Circle."
Be sure to loot the area thoroughly before leaving, as Hawke is unable to return. A group of spiders will ambush Hawke in the large cavern.
Kirkwall Alienage Edit
- Feynriel goes to the Circle of Magi, or seeks refuge with the Dalish elves:
