The Hinterlands Walkthrough

The Hinterlands is one of the largest maps in DA:I and it is important that you do not get stuck here too much in the beginning. The only two quests you have to complete before "In Your Heart Shall Burn"  are "Templars in the West" and "Apostates in Witchwood." The only War Table operations you should do before In Your Hearts Shall Burn is "Address a Nobleman's Concerns," "The Cult of Andraste" and the follow up "The Secretes of Andraste", "The Chantry Remains" and its follow up "The University of Orlais" or "Grand Cleric Iona", "Investigate Therinfal Redoubt" and potential follow up, "Hunt Therinfall Redoublt Demon" and "Red Jenny says 'Drop and Grab"'" Make sure you talk to Leliana in her tent a few times to "soften" or "harden" her and have chats with the other companions for their tidbits. It is very important to do just a few quests here at a time before heading to another zone or else your eyes will fall out from the senseless grinding.
