Unlock : Release Sten from his cage in Lothering before it’s invaded
Sten is a Qunari soldier sent to investigate the Blight. Unfortunately, his group was ambushed and when he was awoke he panicked and killed the farmers that had saved him. He waited for the other farmers and surrendered after realizing what he had done and was caged in Lothering. Sten makes a great Two-Handed Warrior in combat.
Sten will leave the party during the Urn of Sacred Ashes quest if you take him along and mouth off to him about the Archdemon. You’ll have to fight him for control of the party and winning the bout causes him to leave.
Speak with him at camp and ask about his past. Eventually he will speak of his sword so work your way into telling him you will find it for him to obtain the quest “ The Sword of the Beresaad “. Head to Lake Calenhad Docks and speak to the Scavenger at the entrance. He eventually tells you that Faryn was here and the place he is checking out has already been picked clean for items. With Sten in your party head to the Frostback Mountains and speak with Faryn. He will quickly admit selling the sword to Dwyn in Redcliffe.
Head to Redcliffe with Sten in your party and talk to Dwyn, the dwarf at the back of the village. Ask for the key and he gives it to you, then open the chest and loot Sten’s Sword . Gift it to Sten to end the quest and increase his approval, you also receive Asala which is Sten’s two-handed sword.
- Sten has a no-nonsense attitude and is only satisfied with killing Darkspawn
- Sten will die if you fail to free him from his cage before Lothering is ultimately overrun.
Sten likes paintings, and though it might seem awkward, it’s an extension of Qunari discipline.
