Dragon Age 2: Mark of the Assassin DLC Walkthrough

Table of Contents

The Cult of the Sky

  1. This challenge can be activated during the Baiting a Wyvern quest.
  2. Before entering the east end of the Hunting Grounds, make a right down the path in front of it and approach the hunters ahead to activate a cut scene. Afterwards, eliminate the Ghasts by keeping a fair distance from them and by attacking one at a time.
  3. If you defeated the Horrors by the altar earlier, there will now be a new icon on your screen that will lead you to the Lost Scholar. Speak with him, then choose the responses of “Are you alright” and “I found an altar nearby.
  4. After the scholar runs off, follow the icon on your map back to the clearing where you defeated the wave of Horrors. Interact with the altar again to make the treasure chest appear and to complete the quest.
  5. When you open the “Treasure of the Sky”, you’ll find a book, a sacrificial dagger and clothing as well.

I need help on the doors


On October 13, 2011 at 7:57 am

A little help with the Vault, please.


On October 13, 2011 at 1:44 pm

For some reason I can only open one chest in the vault and also the last gate will not open


On October 13, 2011 at 7:50 pm

I am also unable to get the last gate to open. Cannot go back through the crack in the wall, so now I’m stuck…can someone help?

Vault seems bugged as hell. I can only open one chest and pick up the pirate medallion- left hand chest is unopenable and can’t get the feather (have the first one from outside).
It seems as if I can either open the main gates for the vault door or open gates to get to the chest (tried in different saves), but once I’ve got the chest I can’t get the main gates open…

okay, i was caught locked in the dungeon room, escaped found myself in big room with nice firepit, unlocked some stupid puzzles all except for this big one made out of tiles. !@#$%^&* IT!


On October 16, 2011 at 6:19 am

Spoiler ahead…

The gate room is not bugged at all. Getting the second chest is another puzzle. After u get the first chest, make one character stand on the stone near the chest, and the other character stand on the stone near the first chest. This will open the second chest as well as the Main gate. (+600xp)

Damnit, how did I not get that?!
Cool, thanks for help. I went on and completed the DLC -looks like I’ll be replaying the last 3 hours of it now!

You are missing the third puzzle in the vault. This is the one I am stuck on.

@dani Go to youtube for the video. It’s a pain in the butt to find the pattern unless you are ‘A Beautiful Mind’ savant

There is a HUGE difference in what ring,s medallions ,etc you get depending on the level you enter this quest on.I did it as add on after I had completed the game ,then as a level 6 .I played as a 22 rogue and won a bunch of 2 handed swords…then as a warrior and did not get a 2 handed sword ??


On December 29, 2011 at 10:54 pm

Did anyone find that after this DLC that the glitter around chests, and magic used became squares????

in the mark of the assasin dlc how do i solve the portrait puzzle


On October 1, 2012 at 10:19 am

This DLC is wicked.. I loved it! I save right before I start the add on and then I go back and re-do the quest with each of my ppl.. much more fun that way.. yeah I’m OCD with doing all the side

So you go through the entire DLC and the opponents are REALLY stingy on the potions. You can’t buy any or make any during the course of play, so by the time you reach the Boss at the end you’re almost out even if you hardly use any. This makes the battle nearly impossible to win.

Then if you do eventually win, the game leaves you stranded on the final scene with no way back to the main game!

What a smoldering, festering, putrid piece of crap! Whoever coded this needs to be eaten by an alpha Wyvern!

flip puzzle makes no sense

I’ve been having trouble with the Mark of the assassin dlc for Dragon age 2.
At the boss fight – where you fight Prosper and the Wyvern – the wyvern are supposed to switch place with Prosper, so you fight the wyvern instead of Prosper.
The problem is, the wyvern never jumps down from the wall. Prosper appears next to the wyvern and starts shooting me like he is supposed to but the wyvern doesn’t come down.
You can see a red circle on the ground where the wyvern are supposed to be, but you cant attack him.
I tried reloading another save and also tried playing on different difficulties, but nothing helped. I looked for patches but didn’t find one and tried to google but found no answers.
I have bought the game, so there shouldn’t be a problem.
I read that after you finish the dlc you see a cutscene where Hawke is back at the estate in Kirkwall. The thing is I don’t live in the estate with this character, since I just created a new character to play the dlc. That might be the problem, but I just want to make sure it is.
And if it matters, I brought Fenris and Anders with me, and I’m playing as a female mage.
