Main Quests

Doom Upon All the World

The Final Battle

Warning: Before taking it to Corypheus, be sure to complete any Inner Circle quests and Romances at this point. You will still be able to continue playing once the Story ends, however, some of those quests may become unavailable.

The end of the Story is nigh, are you ready for this? When you feel up to it, go to the War Table and start this operation.

BOSS - Corypheus

**Name** **Stats**
Health 136512
Defense 88
Immunity All Disabling Effects
Ability Perceptive

You’ll want to use Cold attacks against Corypheus to slow him down, allowing your melee attackers to get in range and taunt him. Keep your team spread out so that the group attacks that Corypheus uses don’t damage everyone and hit him with everything you have. Watch out for the walls of red lyrium that Corypheus can summon to split the group up and block ranged characters from being able to see and attack him. After some damage Corypheus will retreat to the balcony and you will have to chase him up the steps. Maintain the same strategy and drop his health to 50% to trigger the second part of the battle.

Note: Instead of the cutscene, you may end up with a loading screen that takes longer than normal. If you ride out the loading screen you will be back with Corypheus. You can get in some free shots as he doesn’t attack but it would be a waste of time. Instead, go down the stairs then back up and the cutscene should trigger.

BOSS - Red Lyrium Dragon

**Name** **Stats**
Health 226288 - Starts at 113144
Defense 59

Your dragon is down but not without doing it’s part to help take out Corypheus’ pet.

Focus on the front legs with area of effect attacks aimed just under the Red Lyrium Dragon’s head; this will get all three in the damage. Keep up Barrier and quickly drop the front two legs so you can flank the dragon much more easily. This dragon is like most, using shooting Lyrium balls and Lyrium breath to deal heavy damage, and has a nasty tail whip if you stand behind it. The Red Lyrium Dragon can use Guard so break through that with Shield Bash. It starts at half health and you must drain it completely in order to win this fight.

Another cutscene and it’s back to targeting Corypheus.

Corypheus will annoyingly teleport around the battlefield (left). The Dragon will use a red lyrium version of flame breath and other dragon attacks (right).

BOSS - Corypheus

**Name** **Stats**
Health 136512
Defense 88
Immunity All Disabling Effects
Ability Perceptive

You get a chance to restock at the Supply Cache on your way up. As you approach, keep an eye out for the area of effect attacks Corypheus will unleash; taking cover is usually the best option. This is similar to the first phase except you’ll win when you drain him to 0 health so use everything you have to take him down.

The Aftermath

Corypheus is gone so what are you going to do now? Hold a banquet. At Skyhold you can speak with your many companions, they have some interesting things to say. Make your way to the door leading to your quarters to trigger the end. Be sure to watch the scene after the credits! You’ll be returned to Skyhold with a post-completion save.
