Way to unlock: talk to Dorian at Skyhold, after you have completed his quests and entered the romantic relationship (males only).
Quest giver: Dorian (M12,4)
To receive this quest, complete the previous one for Dorian. In the main vestibule, where you can usually find Varrik, Bianka gives you a letter. After the conversation with Dorian, travel to Val Royeaux. Here, meet up with Ponchard, whom you find to the South of the location, by the store. During the conversation, you can decide what you think about Ponchard's conditions - this is an important part of the quest.
You can accept Ponchard's conditions - this unlocks a war table operation: "Help Ponchard de Lieux". After you complete the operation, you receive an amulet, return to Dorian in Skyhold once you have obtained it.
The other option is to intimidate Ponchard - for this, you need to meet several conditions:
- Your character is a Qunari or a Trevelyan (not mage),
- You have intimidated Gaspadr, Cellene and Briala during the Wicked Eyes and Wicked Hearts quest,
- You have the "Nobility Knowledge" Inquisition perk.
If you have intimidated Ponchard, it also is an option to kill him, but this will result in completing the quest in the negative way - the love affair with Dorian will not be possible.
There are no rewards for completing this quest.
