Act II

An Update and Family Matters (Optional)

An Update
Head over to The Hanged Man and speak with Varric. Agree to pay a visit to his brother Bartrand to finish this quest and start 'Family Matters'.

Family Matters
Head to Hightown at night and enter Bartrand’s Estate. A quick scene takes place then it’s Varric versus a large group of Guards. Once you defeat them all there is a brief intermission and you gain control of the entire party again.

As Varric, clear out the enemies in the main room for a scene.

Check the crate then go through the door to fight off some guards. Loot yet another crate and continue west to find a Crazed Commander. Head north to the next room where there are trap - standard on the floor.

Clear out the guards and move to the next room where the floor is littered in trap - master . Go south after disarming the trap and loot the crate once the waves of guards die out. A scene occurs then check the chest in the right room for Silverite-Reinforced Buckles while the chest in the left room has a Belt of the Primevals . Leave this area for now and go to the northern area where you will find much more guards and two crates .The eastern room has two crates and a chest - complex containing some Blackened Greaves .

Return to the main room with the rest of the party and clear out the guards for another scene.

Return to the main foyer and enter the middle room and fight off Bartrand. Let Varric kill him for high approval or not for the opposite effect. Loot the chest in the back for Boots of Enasalin / Boots of the Overseer / Stonehammer Boots .
