Throughout five areas of Dragon Age Inquisition, you'll stumble across constellation challenges known as Astrarium puzzles. The trick is to connect up the dots in a certain order, so that you create the correct image. Think of constellations in the real world like The Plough or Orion's Belt for an idea of what's going on here.

While these challenges start off easily enough, they get increasingly trickier as you work through the whole series. It's worth the effort though, as once you've solved each set of three, you'll be guided towards a cave containing lots of delicious equipment. We've put together a quick guide - with fancy diagrams and everything - so you can tick them off in short order, and hoover up that lovely loot.

If you're looking for a more general guide to Dragon Age Inquisition, we've already put together a walkthrough for the core story, along with plenty of hints and tips for getting the most out of your Rogues, Warriors and Mages. Check out the links towards the bottom of this page for more details.

The Hinterland Astrarium puzzles

You'll find the first Astrarium puzzle to the south-east of this area. You cannot retrace your steps once you've drawn a line, so the trick is to connect all the dots together nice and efficiently. Here's the solution you need - as with all the puzzle solutions in this guide, simply start at the star marked 1 and continue all the way around until you reach the final number.

The Redcliffe Courts camp Astrarium puzzle

For the next puzzle, make your way to the camp at the courts of Redcliffe. The puzzle's located in the hills, and you should be able to spot the location from the main house here. Here's the solution to this next relatively simple puzzle.

South of the camp at Redcliffe

The last Astrarium puzzle in this region is located in the most dangerous area, so it's best left until a little later on. Once you're around level six or seven though, you simply need to head towards the southern farms, kill the bandits, then head up the path on the hill to find the next one.

Once you've solved it, either fast travel or walk back to camp. From there, head east through the gorge and across the river. When you reach the other side, go up the hills and through the canyon until you come to a forest. From here you should have no trouble finding the cave containing the treasure.
