If you haven't read Beat Wicked Eyes and Wicked Hearts in Dragon Age: Inquisition Part 1, go read it now, otherwise this won't make any sense.

When we last left off, we had spoken to Empress Celene's Occult Advisor and received a key from her to investigate the Servants Quarters. Let's head there now.

The Servants Quarters

Inside the Servants Quarters

As you did before climbing the trellis, be sure to save your game. You aren't supposed to be in the Servants Quarters and will lose court approval every few seconds. The door to the Servants Quarters is in the Guest Wing in the first room at the very end from the entrance. Save your game, then interact with the door to enter.

  1. 1
    Enter your inventory screen as soon as you gain control of your character on the other side of the door
    .
    Neither you nor your companions will be wearing any of your equipment, so you need to make sure that everyone is suited up. You're not on the clock while you're in your inventory.

  2. 2
    Search the corpse in front of you and save your game here
    .
    This is important because you're going to have to do some maneuvering in the next room that can get tricky, so you might want to be able to reload so you can do it more quickly.

  3. 3
    Go into the next room, the kitchen, and jump up onto some barrels in the corner of the room
    .
    You need to jump up to the rafters. Your goal is the halla statue which sits on one of the beams in the center of the room. Carefully balance on the beam and grab the statue then jump down. There's also a book here that you can look at, but it isn't crucial.
    Was this step helpful? Yes | No | I need help
  4. 4
    Go back into the room you started in and run out through the west door
    .
    You'll be in a garden. Turn left and use your search key to find another halla statue in the bushes.
    Was this step helpful? Yes | No | I need help
  5. 5
    Run forward until you hit a fountain
    .
    Another cutscene triggers here…oh, no…its Venatori! Dispatch them, and you and your companions will have a discussion about the knife you find on one of them.
    Was this step helpful? Yes | No | I need help
  6. 6
    Go north until a wall stops forward progress and use the stairs on your right
    .
    Climb the ladder and ignore the closed door. There's an open room ahead where you'll find another halla statue on the right.
    Was this step helpful? Yes | No | I need help
  7. 7
    Return to the fountain and proceed to the left and through an archway
    .
    Turn right and keep running in that direction until you see some Venatori. Take care of them and see the dead body in front of a door to the right. Go inside.
    Was this step helpful? Yes | No | I need help
  8. 8
    Take care of the Venatori you find in the dining room on the right
    .
    There are some stairs in the northeast corner of the room, use them.
    Was this step helpful? Yes | No | I need help
  9. 9
    Go straight into the room ahead, ignoring the dead bodies and the room on the left
    .
    Turn left and another left at the wall. You'll be in a long hallway, and there are some Venatori to kill here, after which a cutscene will trigger with Briala. Talk to her and choose any options you like as it doesn't hurt your court approval. Your companions may not like some of the options, though, so be aware of that.
    Was this step helpful? Yes | No | I need help
  10. 10
    Return the way you came and go into the room you passed earlier
    .
    Open the door and grab the locket inside; it's very important if you want to reunite Briala and Empress Celene.
    Was this step helpful? Yes | No | I need help
  11. 11
    Return to the long hallway where you had the cutscene with Briala and jump down off the balcony
    .
    Once you hit the ground, turn right and run ahead, then turn right again and then turn left and you'll be in front of the archway. From there, run straight, then turn left and head for the stairs where you'll find a gate. Use it, and you'll be back in the Guest Wing.
    Was this step helpful? Yes | No | I need help
  12. 12
    Go toward the Trophy Room where you'll see some guards
    .
    Talk to the one named Ambassador Anton and tell him the following for +10 court approval:
    • The stories I could tell
    • You should talk to Cullen
    Was this step helpful? Yes | No | I need help
  13. 13
    Enter the Trophy Room where there is a document you need on the desk
    .
    There is also a halla statue in here and a Caprice Coin. Once you have these things, bells should be going off and its time to head back to the ball room lest you risk court approval
    Was this step helpful? Yes | No | I need help

The Grand Ball Room

Conferring with the Advisors in the Grand Ballroom

At this point, you have the opportunity to put your court approval over the top by making the right choice in the steps that follow.

  1. 1
    Talk to Grand Duchess Floriane de Chalons
    .
    She will greet you when you enter the ball room. Use the following choices to gain many court approval points:
    Advertisement
    • May I help you?
    • Lets dance
    • Orlais' war is Thedas' war (if you have the Nobility Knowledge perk)
    • Is that we both want?
    • Which am I to you?
    • Who do you trust?
    • Isn't everyone?
    Was this step helpful? Yes | No | I need help
  2. 2
    Speak with your Advisors
    .
    They will be anxious to learn what has been going on. You don't risk court approval on anything you say to them, so say what you like. They will press you to decide what to do, but whatever you decide, you need more information.
    Was this step helpful? Yes | No | I need help
  3. 3
    Talk to Briala
    .
    She will be on the balcony to the right. If you want to get her back together with Celene, tell her about the locket you found.
    Was this step helpful? Yes | No | I need help
  4. 4
    Talk to Lady Fleur, one of Celene's ladies in waiting
    .
    She will be in the ball room to the right. Tell her about the locket, too.
    Was this step helpful? Yes | No | I need help
  5. 5
    Talk to Empress Celene, who will speak directly with you now
    .
    Use the following options if you want to get her back with Briala:
    • You valued that locket.
    • You still love her.
    Was this step helpful? Yes | No | I need help

The Royal Wing

A Timely Rescue

OK, we're in the home stretch now. This will be the last timed portion of this quest, although it's not as damaging to court approval as the others were.

  1. 1
    Return to the Vestibule and walk to the very end, and then turn right
    .
    There will be a door on your right side that you need to enter. Before you do, save your game!
    Advertisement
    Was this step helpful? Yes | No | I need help
  2. 2
    Walk up the stairs and turn right
    .
    In the next room is a halla statue. Grab it and head back to the stairs. The statue is only necessary if you want all three factions to work together. If you don't care about that, you don't have to worry about it.
    Was this step helpful? Yes | No | I need help
  3. 3
    Move to the end of the hall where you'll hear screaming from behind the door
    .
    Enter that room to trigger a cutscene where you take care of some Venatori who are attacking an elven woman. Talk to the Elven woman; as long as you promise to protect her, she'll agree to testify.
    • Pro-tip: remember the Game: Not everything is as it seems.
    • Don't forget to nab the halla statue on the left side of the room
    Was this step helpful? Yes | No | I need help
  4. 4
    Take the exit nearest the purple part of your compass
    .
    As you and your party advance through the dimly lit hallway, you hear someone screaming from behind a door on your left side. If you want all factions working together, don't worry about that just yet.
    Was this step helpful? Yes | No | I need help
  5. 5
    Enter the door on your right and jump out of the open window onto the balcony outside
    .
    Follow it along the right and enter the room there through the open window. Use your search key on the tables inside to find another halla statue.
    Was this step helpful? Yes | No | I need help
  6. 6
    Go back the way you came and return to the room where you found the elven woman
    .
    Exit through there into the room you first came into when you entered the Royal Wing.
    Was this step helpful? Yes | No | I need help
  7. 7
    Turn left and head across the room to a door
    .
    You'll hear a muffled voice calling for help. Use the halla statues to access the room and inside you'll find a man in an interesting situation. Ask him to testify. Now, you can return to the darkened hallway.
    Was this step helpful? Yes | No | I need help
  8. 8
    Enter the door on your left and another cutscene triggers during which the person behind everything is revealed
    .
    A rift appears, and you'll have to fight some Wraiths and Shades, nothing you haven't encountered before, and close the rift.
    Was this step helpful? Yes | No | I need help
  9. 9
    Have a chat with the mercenary
    .
    He'll be willing to testify against Gaspard, and if you have the Underworld perk, you can recruit him as an agent for the Inquisition.
    Was this step helpful? Yes | No | I need help
  10. 10
    Exit through the south door
    .
    It's easy to get turned around here; I almost always lose my way and have to do a lot of backtracking because I am kind of an idiot. Avoid my mistakes by checking your map!
    Was this step helpful? Yes | No | I need help
  11. 11
    Eliminate the three Venatori here and keep moving to the west
    .
    You can also just blow past them. Again, check you map: it's easy to get turned around.
    Was this step helpful? Yes | No | I need help
  12. 12
    Run down the stairs and go through the door
    .
    There are some Venatori here, but don't worry about them. Just use the door on your left and turn right where you'll find the door leading back to the Grand Ball Room.
    Was this step helpful? Yes | No | I need help

Saving Empress Celene: She Rules Alone

Confronting Floriane
  1. 1
    Confront Floriane
    .
    When you get back to the Ball Room, Cullen comes up to you. He wants to know what you're going to do. Tell him that you need to speak with Floriane. If you have at least 85 court approval (you should have 100 if you've been following this guide), you can either have the guards arrest her or take care of her yourself.
    Was this step helpful? Yes | No | I need help
  2. 2
    Talk to Empress Celene
    .
    Tell her about Gaspard. You can implicate Gaspard and Briala, in which case both will be executed, or you can ask Celene to spare Gaspard's life. Choosing the latter allows Briala to escape judgement. Here are your dialog options:  
    1. If you want Briala and Gaspard to get executed:
    • Gaspard was planning a coup.
    • Briala is an accomplice.
     
    1. If you want Gaspard executed, but not Briala, choose "As you wish."
    2. If you want Celene to spare Gaspard, tell her "No, spare Gaspard's life."
    Was this step helpful? Yes | No | I need help

    • He hired mercenaries.
    • He murdered an emissary.
    • What about Briala's reward?
    Was this step helpful? Yes | No | I need help

Gaspard Rules Orlais

Commander Cullen
  1. 1
    Talk to Cullen
    .
    Tell him to do nothing, Floriane will dispatch Celene, after which you will have to fight her. She isn't a difficult boss; you confront her in the garden where she teleports around. Just focus on attacking her and let your companions deal with her henchmen.
    Was this step helpful? Yes | No | I need help
  2. 2
    Talk to Gaspard after the fight is over
    .
    Use the evidence against Briala.
