The Imperial Enchanter

Quest Giver Requirement Reward
Circle Mage After speaking with the Clerics in Val Royeaux Vivienne joins the Inquisition
Speak with the **Circle Mage** to start this quest. Simply attend the party at the château of Duke Bastien de Ghyslain. Here you'll meet Vivienne, either accept or deny her request to join the Inquisition.

Favors the First Enchanter

Quest Giver Requirement Reward
Vivienne Talk to Vivienne at Skyhold 286 Experience, 120 Influence
Head to the **Hinterlands Crossroads** and go north using the East Road. As you go under the battlements ruins climb up and cross the bridge. Climb the ladder to find the first **Circle Mage Tome** . Head north of the Path of Flame Camp in the Exalted Plains. There is an **Oculara** just to the left of the Circle Mage Tome amidst the rubble of a building. The third **Circle Mage Tome** is in the Western Approach at the Shimmer Stone Mine, south of Nazaire's Pass Camp -- it's large and on the table. Return to Vivienne when you've collected all three.

Bring Me the Heart of Snow White

Quest Giver Requirement Reward
Vivienne Talk to Vivienne at Skyhold 1,025 Experience, 400 Influence, 3 Power, Magister's Hat, Enchanter's Seat
You can obtain this quest after completing the previous one and after you complete the **Wicked Hearts** main mission.

Dialogue Choice

After Vivienne’s opening speech.

  • I’ll help you.

  • I don’t think so. (Vivienne -20)

Vivienne requires the heart of a Snowy Wyvern . Something her previous chevalier friends are unable to help with due to them being dead… so now its our job. Head over to the Exalted Plains Fens Camp . Make your way up to the Crow Fens, to the very north part of the map. The Snowy Wyvern is much like the Gurgut’s in this area, only weak to electricity and strong against spirit. It likes to hang out in the northwest corner of the map, but can wander. It is, as you may imagine, snowy white in color, so it is easy to spot once you find it.

Take it out and deliver the heart to Vivienne (note that you can lie about having the heart… also, telling her to talk results in Vivienne Disapproves being shown). Hand it over and she’ll show you what it is used for while you gain the Experience, Influence and Power rewards.

Dialogue Choice

What can I do for you, my dear? Is it too much to hope that you’ve brought me the heart of the snowy wyvern?

  • I’ve got the heart. Now talk. ( Vivienne -5 )

  • [Lie.] I’ve brought the heart.

  • I’ve got it.

  • I’m so sorry.

  • I don’t know what to say.

  • We should go.

  • Not yet.

  • [Lie.] Here’s the heart.

  • Very well, here it is.

  • Then no deal. ( Vivienne -20 )

Follow up with her back at Skyhold. Gave regular Wyvern heart.

  • I found out what it was. ( Vivienne -21 )

  • Because I hate you. ( Vivienne -25 )

  • I didn’t trust you. ( Vivienne -20 )

  • I’m sorry. ( Vivienne -20 )

  • Snowy wyverns are hard to find. ( Vivienne -21 )

Follow up with her back at Skyhold. Gave Snowy Wyvern Heart. ( Vivienne +5 )

  • Love at first sight…

  • Were you also charmed?

  • A mage and a noble? Dangerous.

  • I’m sorry.

  • You’ll be kept busy.

  • Is there anything I can do?

  • I’ll leave you to it.

Respond as you wish as you see what the heart was for. Once you are back at Skyhold, be sure to go talk to her again for a Greatly Approves message (just by talking to her) and then offer to help for a Vivienne Approves message. You will also get the Magister’s Hat and Enchanter’s Seat rewards once you have talked to her (the seat goes towards your throne collection).
