Measuring the Veil

**Quest Giver** **Requirement** **Reward**
Solas Talk to Solas in Haven Approval for Solas, Amulet of Power (Solas)

This is the first quest in a small chain. Head down the East Road with Solas and you'll meet Mihris. Help her defeat the demons and head inside. Use the Veilfire Torch to enter the ruins where you'll need to fight more demons. Check the left side of the large room for the Glyph that gives the Fire Rune schematic . Talk to Mihris after the quest is completed and ask for the Amulet of Power to receive it. Completing this quest gives Solas +1 Approval but getting the Amulet of Power too gains another +2 Approval . Activate 10 artifacts to unlock "Measure Veil Strength" war table operation.

What Lies Dormant

**Quest Giver** **Requirement** **Reward**
Solas Complete "Measure Veil Strength" War Table Operation 10 Silverite

This quest is really just like any other Rift closing quest. Travel to the Hinterlands and make your way to the Dungeon in Dead Ram Grove. Inside you will find a rift just waiting for you to open so you can seal it properly. Fight off the demons that come through and close it once and for all. A mage who has Dispel can make things go quicker.

All New, Faded For Her

**Quest Giver** **Requirement** **Reward**
Solas High enough approval 1025 XP, 400 Influence, 3 Power

Head to the Exalted Plains and start heading west through Halin'sulahn with Solas in the group. Once you find the Spirit you'll quickly see it has become a Pride Demon. You can either kill the demon or help Solas destroy the summoning pillars. If you are a Rift Mage or have the Arcane Knowledge Perk you can take a special dialogue option that will put the pillars at half health. Once the pillars are destroyed you can let Solas kill the mages responsible for turning his friend into a demon or get him to back down. Either way Solas leaves and says he will meet you back at Skyhold. Return to Skyhold to complete the quest.
