Way to unlock: Automatically, after you complete The Wrath of Heaven main quest.
The quest-giver: - (M2, 1)
This quest becomes available automatically, after you reach Haven for the first time (M2,1). Your task is to supply Minaeve with items that some of the monsters drop, thanks to which they can be examined thoroughly. You can obtain these items by examining the corpses of the monsters that you slay and an example item has been presented in the above screenshot.
Note - make sure that you do not sell, inadvertently, one of such items to a merchant.
After you have obtained, at least, one such item, you can take it back to Minaeve in the Chantry (M2,1a) and interact with the research table, after you talk to her. This completes the quest but, this does not mean that you should forget all about this errand. It is best to supply Minaeve with new research subjects, thanks to which you gain more experience (ranging from several tens to several hundred points) and learn more about your opponents (thanks to which you, e.g. deal more damage to them).
Rewards for completing the quest:
- The option to learn more about the opponents
- Influence points
