Dragon Age Origins Cutscene Gift Guide

Updated on February 14, 2010

Which gift to please Morrigan?

You've no doubt reached this page from my Dragon Age: Origins gift guide hub. I hope it has been very helpful in your Dragon Age journey! Expanding a little further, I present to you my Dragon Age Origins Cutscene Gift Guide! My, isn't that a mouthful?

Here I will list the gifts which the Dragon Age Origins characters appreciate so much; that they trigger cut scenes! From Alistair's mother's amulet to Morrigan's strange obsession with shinies, I hope I don't forget anything!

Bear in mind, that alike to the gift guide, there be spoilers ahoy! So be careful if you haven't completed the game. I'll try to order them beginning with least revealing.

If you haven't seen the gift guide yet, it can be found here:

      Its in a secret room, here is a detailed answer I found "After you save the one Grey Warden from Howe's estate in Denerim during the landsmeet quest, reoric or something, you can go through a few options and he will mention a vault and say he will talk to you later about it, then later after you either broke out of prison, or killed the guards that try apprehend you, you talk to him again at the Arl of Redcliffe's estate (He's located in the same room as the arl.) and ask him about the vault once more, he'll give you the location and the combination to it, then its in the warehouse near the Noble tavern place at the Market District. There's two bookcases in the back, go up to the one on the left and activate it and voila, the shield is in the back I think on an armor stand or in one of the closet thingies."
