There is no way Arundhati would go to Halamshiral in a jacket and pants. Not when the possibility of gold is around.
While she'd likely save both mages and templars, given the confines of the game, she'd chose templars first. Their control of magic is more promising than the simple idea of a bond through magic with her fellow mages.
Besides, what better way to scare the shit out of every pious human at the Winter Palace than reminding them that a four-foot-ten elf controls the templars?
