Dragon Age Inquisition Specializations Quests Guide

Each class within Dragon Age: Inquisition must complete a quest in order to be able to focus on their chosen specialization. We’ve already covered specializations, but people have been asking for more specific information on how to go about doing their quests for those specializations, so here we are. Let’s take a look.

Before You Begin

First, you’ll need to get yourself to Skyhold after completing the very first act in the game. Please note that if you aren’t level 10 yet you might not be able to proceed. I wasn’t able to initially, but after hitting level 10 I could. Alright, so once you have everything setup and the 3 NPCs have come to Skyhold, you’ll be able to talk to the one of your choosing based on your class. You can only pick one specialization, so be sure to choose well. You won’t be able to change it afterwards (unless you go back on a save).

Each quest will require that you find various individual components, and then you’ll have to craft something to complete the whole thing. Each individual quest requires different items, of course. Take a look before for the specific quests based on each specialization.
