Location: The Darkspawn Invasion

Did we miss anything in this section? Is there something we didn't discover? Let us know!


You'll have two goals in the Darkspawn Invasion: to meet up with the spirit templar (#6) to learn spirit form, and to defeat Uthkiel the Crusher (#9). Uthkiel is a big melee boss. It's a good idea to whack him with as many ranged attacks as possible before he gets close to you, or else he'll probably keep knocking you down, making it difficult to counter-attack. Killing Uthkiel will unlock this part of the Fade.

You'll need to be in burning man form to pass through these flames.

6 - Templar Spirit

The templar spirit will be under attack by a handful of darkspawn when you arrive. The templar is tough, so go ahead and use area-effect attacks, even if the templar is in the way. After the battle, the templar will teach you spirit form.
