For me, this had to be the best of the 3 mini DLC’s for Dragon Age. Granted Wardens Keep was fun and gave you the chest, Return to Ostagar will give you some decent drops (if done early enough in the game), however this one give you Shale, a hard and nails Golem who you can have as a team member.
This is not only the preferred DLC due to the reward, but enjoyed the story on this, and the final puzzle, also this came free with my copy of Dragon Age, as I don’t think it would have warranted the 1200 points.
The quest starts with you being given a rod but a trader, and telling you that it controls a Golem. The Golem can be found in the town of Honnleath, you kill some dude, then some more dude, run through a cellar, come across a possessed cat, do a puzzle and fight some more Darkspawn.
I did this quite early on in the game, and found Shale to be very beneficial, you can equip him with Electric, Fire and Cold weapons, and protection in the form of Crystals. His stone body makes him hard as nails, so ensuing he has the “Taunt” ability is a must.
