All professions


This mission is fairly short and can avoid combat completely. You will start in the Crow's Nest Tavern and after the initial cutscene you'll be granted invisibility.

Knock out each Ministry Guard as you pass them by standing behind them and pressing the interact button (F by default) when prompted. You will be able to attack them with profession skills (weapon and utility skills being locked from the invisibility), but this is more a hindrance.

Once you reach the middle of the bridge heading towards Grand Piazza, your invisibility will run out and you will now have to avoid being seen. The Grand Piazza is being patrolled by four Ministry Guards, navigate safely through the piazza (Tybalt and Demmi will follow you closely) onto the bridge that leads to Fort Marriner and you are done. Alternatively you can kill all the guards, not terribly difficult as Tybalt and Demmi will assist you.







Cinematic approaching allies:

Lightbringer Tybalt Leftpaw: There you are! Ready for a midnight stroll through through Ministry-infested streets?
Lightbringer Tybalt Leftpaw: Our destination is the order's headquarters, but first we have to leave the city. That means we gotta cross the bridge and the plaza, and get to the docks.
<Character name>: The ministry guards are searching Lion's Arch for Demmi. They're everywhere.
Lady Wi: I can use the last of my energy to cast a veil of invisibility over you, Initiate. I did the same for Demmi when she left Divinity's Reach.
Lady Wi: I would cast it on Demmi again, but Lyssa's Veil can only be placed on an individual once a day.
Lady Wi: Demmi cannot be blessed again until tomorrow—and we have no time to waste. You must get her safely out of the city. and to the Chantry of Secrets.
Demmi Beetlestone: I'm grateful for all that you've done, Lady Wi. If I'm ever able to return to Kryta, I hope to see you again.
Lady Wi: I hope that day comes soon, child. Be safe, remember your duty to Kryta, and be true to the Order.
Lady Wi: May Lyssa watch over you.

After cinematic:

Lady Wi is casting.
Lady Wi: With that illusory veil, you can sneak up on the ministry guards. Knock them out so that Tybalt and Demmi can escape the city.

Talking to allies:

Lady Wi: The veil of illusion won't last long, so keep your questions brief.
Talk more option tango.png Am I completely invisible?
They'll notice you if you're obvious, so stay out of their line of sight. If a guard pays attention, either get out of sight or stand still.
Talk more option tango.png How should I take out the guards?
Talk more option tango.png How exactly does the illusion work?
Talk end option tango.png Thanks for your assistance.
Talk more option tango.png How should I take out the guards?
A thump on their skulls will knock them out. So long as you're behind one unseen, they'll be vulnerable.
Talk more option tango.png Am I completely invisible like this? (Same as "Am I completely invisible?")
Talk more option tango.png How exactly does the illusion work?
Talk end option tango.png Thanks for your assistance.
Talk more option tango.png How exactly does the illusion work?
The illusion affects whether people notice you. If they're aware of your presence, the veil will fail.
Talk more option tango.png What happens if the veil falls?
If you're within sight of the tavern, I will re-cast the illusion. Beyond that, you're on your own.
Talk more option tango.png Am I completely invisible like this? (Same as "Am I completely invisible?")
Talk more option tango.png How should I take out the guards?
Talk end option tango.png Thanks for your assistance.
Talk end option tango.png I should get going. Thank you.
Lightbringer Tybalt Leftpaw: I prefer trusting things I can see, smell, and tinker with.
Talk end option tango.png I trust Lady Wi. We'll knock those guards flat and get out of here.
Demmi Beetlestone: You still seem visible. Are we sure that Lady Wi's spell worked?
Talk more option tango.png Yes. The illusion makes a person unnoticeable, not truly invisible. The guards just won't pay attention.
Wow. Lady Wi is brilliant, isn't she?
Talk end option tango.png She really is. Let's go.

If you attack a Ministry Guard:

Ministry Guard: Hey, what's that?

After the veil disappears at the bridge:

Demmi Beetlestone: Well, it was good while it lasted!
Lightbringer Tybalt Leftpaw: Yeah. Now this is gonna be twice as hard. Stick close. We might have to run for it.

Talking to allies after reaching the bridge:

Lightbringer Tybalt Leftpaw: Ever heard of the Ash Legion motto, "Quick and quiet?" I think we could both learn something from that right now.
Talk end option tango.png Agreed. Quick and quiet it is. Let's go.
Demmi Beetlestone: There are guards everywhere! How are we going to get through?
Talk end option tango.png Stay close. We'll find a way.

When the guards notice you:

Ministry Guard: There they are! Apprehend them! If she won't surrender, kill her!

Cinematic leaving the city:

Demmi Beetlestone: That was incredible! My heart is racing. Do you two really do this all the time?
Lightbringer Tybalt Leftpaw: All day, and all night. And then the next day, and the next, but not the day after that. That's a holiday.
<Character name>: Don't listen to this big lug. I thought it was exciting, too. I'm still an Initiate, though, so I'm still learning.
Lightbringer Tybalt Leftpaw: You learn fast, though. We never would have gotten through the city without your quick thinking.
Lightbringer Tybalt Leftpaw: Now we head south, to Stormbluff Isle.
<Character name>: Stormbluff Isle? Why there?
Lightbringer Tybalt Leftpaw: That's how we get to the Chantry. Just trust me! Landon's still on our tail.
<Character name>: All right, Tybalt. I'll see you there.

My story[edit]

Thrown Off Guard.jpg

It was harrowing, but we got Demmi out of Lion's Arch. Thanks to Lady Wi's illusions, we tricked the Ministry Guard and found a way through to safety.

My story


Lady Wi says that she cast Lyssa's Veil on Demmi when the latter left Divinity's Reach, and can't again because a day hasn't passed. However, per Stealing Secrets, Demmi had been in Applenook "a few days" prior. Furthermore, she says she can re-cast the illusion on you if it fails.
  • Lyssa's Veil is an effect active though out this story segment.
  • Like all other Personal Story instances taking place in Lion's Arch, this story step utilizes the original 1325 AE appearance, not the modern look.
