You are a Hurlock Vanguard, chosen by the Archdemon to lead and destroy the city of Denerim. Use the Enthrall ability on the nearby Genlock to recruit it in to your ranks. Move forward through the gate to the Darkspawn corpse, then to the middle of the city where a battle is taking place. Defeat the City Guard and Crossbowman and continue north, recruiting a Hurlock isn’t a bad idea. There is a broken crate in the vicinity and defeating the guards should get the quest completed. Move west to the Ogre and enthrall it, then turn it on the guards.

Another quest is added to “ Smash the Barricades “ but first head south from the crate to find a chest. West of here up the steps are some guards to take out if you desire. Head back north and take out a barrier as you fend off more guards and Ser Cauthrien. Loot the Crate of Medical Supplies and destroy the other barrier to complete the quest. The next tasking is to kill Arl Howe who spawns south of the barricades. Deal with the dog first and utilize the Ogre’s Stomp to control the Bodyguards. Loot the Guard Dog for Large Bone and Steel Spiked Collar while Arl Howe holds a Saw Sword and Steel Bracers . You gain a new quest, “ Rampage to the Market “, so proceed east to continue.

Enthralling other Darkspawn will add them to your team. You will want to enthrall a good mixture. Get the Ogre as soon as you can.

Recruit the nearby Shriek in to the party, execute one of your own if you need to make room. Stealth past the Ballista Guard and use the Shriek’s skills to take them down. A new quest has been added too; “ Kill Bann Teagan “. Head south to find innocents running around and gain a new quest that involves their demise, “ Slaughter the Innocents “. Kill Sister Theohild and Mother Perpetua and go east to find Goldana and Bann Ceorlic. South you’ll find a Cleric and an Innocent Woman. Through the gate is Bann Teagan, Ser Landry, and Gorim who will try to stop you. Use the Ogre’s Stomp and the Shriek’s Terrorize to control the group while you take out the tougher crew.

Teagan drops the Redcliffe Shield, go north to find another Cleric. Go east and south towards the tavern to find a few Drunks and Oghren. Loot the corpses for a Forge Master’s Hammer and Wine then continue south. Loot the wooden crate and check the Mages’ Mineral Collection and Alchemy Supplies. Run around until you complete the quest to kill the innocents to gain a new ability in Death Blow. Use the Sapper on the Alienage gate and gain another quest, “ Stop the Resupply “. Head north and burn the weapons cache before more guards arm themselves. Kill Vaughan and his men then destroy the cache.

The Shriek can stealth past the guards at the barricade and ambush them. You will encounter well-known characters as you fight through the city.

Kill the Healer “ is gained and the sapper has finished his mission. Go south to meet Wynne and Knight-Commander Greagoir. Your focus should be on Wynne. Use the Ogre’s Hurl to knock everyone down then stun them with the Shriek and Ogre while you kill her. Loot the Spirit Band off her corpse then go to the Elven Alienage.
