Where Do You Farm Fade-Touched Materials in Dragon Age: Inquisition?

Fade-touched materials are so powerful that they can basically break the game. This is especially true for the materials that add guard, such as fade-touched obsidian and fade-touched silverite. Fade-touched materials can be used on all armors and weapons and they are not class specific. As in, a dagger rogue can still use fade-touched nevarrite for a chance at Pull of Abyss. A good fade-touched mat can make a character essentially invincible.

Here are some of the more common materials and where to find them. They all have a fairly low chance of dropping. If you’re farming metals you can always save, farm and reload. The areas around dragons seem to have a higher chance of dropping fade-touched materials than others. But there’s also another (cheap) way that you can get them (below).
