What age does each race live up to? I assume humans would live up to ~100 (like here rn). Elves would be about the same with humans (they wouldve been immortal but we know what happened). I'm not sure with dwarves and qunari (though I'm guessing dwarves live longer than most bc of their environment)

From what I’ve read, it seems DA:4 is going to be more multiplayer, or as EA has stated, ‘live service’ focused than what it was supposed to be: a scaled back, story, character, and depth focused game with smaller areas and more player choice. The original version of DA:4 was supposed to be much smaller than Inqusition in fetch quest and region size, but massive in characters, story line, player choices, real consequences to those choices and apparently the ability to get, “non-standard game overs” depending on choices made. Is there anyway we’ll still get a game similar to how the producers were describing the first ‘draft’ of the game?
I understand Athem and Andromeda had their issues respectively, but it’s like EA doesn’t learn from their mistakes, and to an extent, Bioware. Doing something like this to Dragon Age is simply going to isolate Biowares fan base even more. If EA is so concerned about making money, you think they would listen to their customers regarding what they want out of their products, or at least use common sense in understanding what players are looking for in a Role Playing game. I also heard their using the Anthem engine to run DA:4.
Now don’t get me wrong, I’m still hoping this new version of DA:4 will be good, and having a ‘live service’ feature isn’t inherently bad. While I am biased in having loved the narrative of the first version, that doesn’t guarantee it would be as it was described on paper as. From what we are hearing however, it sounds like DA:4 is going to turn into something it’s not, and EA’s recent track record is not giving me any reassurance. That is what is worrying me. This whole ‘live service’ push EA is doing will kill Bioware in my opinion. No company can survive three major blows like that, and if DA:4 is like an Anthem but with dragons as some have called it, then it will. Opinions?
Who is the nost powerful mage companion in any if the three games? Solas counts only before returning to his full strength.
I'm messing around with DAO and would like to ask if someone could explain how to get the older DLCs for DAO (and perhaps DA2). I got a Disc version of both games (and Awakening) for PC.
So I was curious about how Justice would handle a rival Hawke in a post-campaign scenario. His opinion of her seems very contingent on whether Anders is friends or rivals with her. In the friendship version, he seems to like and support her, whereas he’s a lot more hostile and resentful of her in the rival version.
Why, then, would he not stop Anders from siding with the templars at the end of the game? And why wouldn’t he try to attack or hurt Hawke for her position on the war? A rivalmanced Hawke is still with Anders in Inquisition, which makes me wonder how that’s possible with the state of her relationship with Justice.
Just something I was curious about, as it’s not really addressed in either DA2 or DAI.
I'm wondering how a dwarf inquisitor behaves and is affected by things in the Descent DLC. Has anyone played as a dwarf through that? I'm especially curious about the stuff at the end (the thing that affects another dwarf character, etc etc). Thanks!
According to Cole, in Trespasser, Solas “broke the dreams to stop the old dreams from waking” and earlier he said “They sleep, masked in a mirror, hiding, hurting, and to wake them...” We also know that Solas was said to have sent the Evanuris far into the “sky” to look for a weapon. It sounds like he tricked them into entering Uthenera to travel the Fade then created the Veil to trap them there, which left their bodies trapped in the physical world. If their bodies are still “dreaming” it almost makes them sound like the Old Gods (Cole even calls them “old dreams”) but the Old Gods aren’t “masked in a mirror”, at least how we know it. We know that the Old Gods still have spirits, though. Could it be like with Flemeth, where she can break her spirit into pieces (like she did in Dragon Age 2) and the Old Gods only have part of the Evanuris’ spirit? Corypheus put part of his spirit in his dragon and Solas claimed it was a replica. That would explain how the Evanuris “are not so easily killed”. The biggest question is why they’d go underground to go into Uthenera, especially since the old tales say it was the Forgotten Ones who went deep into the earth to find the weapon Solas told them about.
Apparently DA4 is being built with Anthem's code and tool base and it's being planned with live service for long time play and revenue EA decided to completely change DA4 from the original plan of focusing on the player's choices and the side effect of those choices. My opinion: When you work with companies like EA who don't see video games as an art form and instead a way to make money you commit suicide I have zero interest in playing Anthem with dragons and I imagine it's the same for a lot of you guys it's time for Bioware to pull something like what Bungie did with Activision because otherwise it'll be the death of their company. P.S if you don't know what I'm talking about read the Article and I'm really interested in hearing the opinions of other fans and I look forward to reading them also I'm sorry if this topic has already been discussed I've been busy lately so I haven't had much time to look at discussion stuff. kotaku.com/the-past-and-present-of-dragon-age-4-1833913351
So...how did they work prior to the Veil, exactly? How does the Fade interact with the earth prior to it's existence? We know the physical world is difficult make change (according to spirits in the Vir Dirthara) but was the Fade something that just sat way up in the sky? And with all of that, how do the humans fit in? Dwarves were made by the Titans, Elves are spirits that took physical form (it's implied), but where did humans come from? Kieran implies they're the next age that came too soon. Was a sort of Veil ALWAYS supposed to come into existence? What are your thoughts and theories.
So the Codices have set-up a couple of new plot lines to follow after Solas (Scaled Ones, those beyond the Volca Sea, the Executors), I'm wondering what do you guys think they'll do with these threads? Do you think they'll be tied into one whole (I REALLY hope not; not everything needs to be connected)? Will the Evanuris and Solas be tied up in the next game so we can look to these in future titles? Will all of these threads even be able to take place solely in the Dragon Age or will we get sequel games named after the new age? Who ARE these unknown peoples? We don't know enough to guess, but what would YOU like them to be?
im wondering if anyone on here knows if you can talk to alistair before the landsmeet about getting married. This could be in either a political standpoint or a romantic one. I would just like to be able to bring it up.
if I recall correctly one of my characters were able to bring it up before the landsmeet after talking to anora and supporting anora, but it was only for a political marriage. I do not remember how I did this however and failed at trying to recreate it.
thank you in advance I do not know if I am putting this in the right place. I am desperate.
Its just sad that this game wont be released :( Fyi, this is the actual game design and story for the "actual" Dragon Age 4 that got cancelled.
Anyone else get the feeling it wasn't just Anders anger that corrupted Justice? I mean, Anders DID have the Taint (I refuse to call it the Blight, the Blight is an event). And if we read the elven histories in Vir Dirthara we learn that the elves had been in the Deep Roads harvesting what I presume was lyrium when some sort of anger drove them out. The Taint is described as an angry song (counter to the harmonious regular lyrium). Could it be that the Taint is only the result of angry Titans and the spread of their magic blood? Or am I missing something?
So, I was thinking...
What are your guys' thoughts on the Grey Warden scenario? Should it be part of a main quest or a DLC, or should it be left as its own game?
Because I honestly came up with an idea of how it could be both...
It would be like Leliana's Song, where your character starts out at a higher level, but more like Awakening due to the sheer amount of content. Basically, you're the Orlesian Warden-Commander (regardless of if your HoF survived) who has returned to the Anderfels with the order's recent fracturing. If saved, Alistair/Loghain/Stroud will be working with you (while letting you take the lead, since they're not great in diplomacy) to create an alliance between several factions within the order at the beginning, including uniting Ferelden's Silver Order led by Oghren, a mage faction, a Templar faction, the Free Marches Wardens, and the new Griffon faction right at the beginning of the game. From this base group, you start to build your side while fighting against the First Warden. Cameos would be in place for Grey Wardens you possibly helped recruit, from the Hawke sibling to Nathanel to Sigrun to Blackwall, as well as possibly Anders if he didn't die. You then travel across the Anderfels, working with its king and other leaders as you struggle against both Darkspawn and factions that have joined with the First Warden, from Tevinter Wardens to Avernus's acolytes (possibly lead by him, if he lived) to Orlesians simply fighting against your rule. New companions (like a Tal-Vashoth you can recruit as well as Caronel from the Last Flight), along with a possible older few (if recruited and weren't killed), but in the end you take your army to the epic fight with the First Warden and overthrow him at Weisshaupt Fortress.
In the end, an ally of the new protagonist comes asking for your help.
I want to make a blood mage with another skill tree to balance it out any tips?
I recently started playing the Dragon Age tabletop as a Free Marcher Warrior and I wanted to specialize as a Templar but I'm not very good at role-playing religious Characters. In your opinion, is it ok to play a Templar who's not in it for the Maker?
So i started da 2 (15hours in( and im wondering which companions to use. Im an archer and i have with me bethany,aveline and fenris but im thinkin of putting isabela instead of fenrus cause i want to romance her,shall i put merril so i can romance her aswell instead of bethany?or shall i keep my current party?
After (re)playing Trespasser, I'm left with a big question: why does Solas act like a stereotypical Evil Overlord?
There is no way you can avoid him telling you he's going to destroy the world, not by being his friend or lover, nor by being his enemy. And if we discount the idea that Solas is either stupid or incapable of lying, I'm looking at the option that he does it on purpose. But what is the purpose of telling the Inquisitor that he's going to destroy the world? What does he gain by that?
I'm thinking that Solas is trying to keep the Inquisition active, and headed by the Inquisitor (hence he's saving the Inquisitor, and refusing to let the Inquisitor join his side). Since he's been using the Inquisition before, Solas might be sure he can continue to do so. And I think it might be useful for him to have someone he knows heading the Inquisitor, since he can look into dreams (he explicitely and obviously does that for his lover, but could he do it unobserved?).
What do all of you think Solas is up to by organizing resistance to his own plans?
Am I the only one seeing a new theme on the Discussion pages which has white blocks for text, links and messages instead of the usual dark blocks with light type? I'm afraid that reading dark text on a glaring white background really hurts my eyes. I use the most recent version of Firefox, but I got the same formatting when I tried the page with Chrome.
I know we discussed this to death last month, speculating what's going on with Bioware. I just wanted to let you know that Kotaku recently released an article that sheds light on the troubled development on Anthem.
It's quite a good read and I highly recommend you check it out if you have the time.
The picture it paints of the current state of affairs certainly isn't pretty, but I think that there is plenty in there that gives reason to hope that DA4 may not meet the same fate as Anthem and Andromeda.
Let me know what you think.
In a fun thought, I'd like to know what everyone is hoping for with the next set of companions in the next Dragon Age game. Are there any backgrounds you'd like to see, or maybe just a returning favorite? Also, who do you think may be the returning companion they've done for every game? (The Oghren-Anders-Varric pattern.)
I, for one, have three types of companions I'm partially hoping for, even if I don't think they will happen. As weird (and unlikely) as it sounds, I do partially hope for an intelligent Darkspawn, possibly one of the Magister Sidereal,x but I know that's probably just wishful thinking.
More realistically, I'm hoping for a Kal-Sharok dwarven companion to fight alongside of us. Also, I've thought of an idea of recruiting an ally from within Solas' organization as a reawakened elf who cannot follow his former friend.
As for the returning companion, I'm partially hoping for the ability to recruit Solas as a common enemy theme, like what we did with Loghain in Origins. However, I do wonder if Dorian would be a better option, saying they continue with this pattern in general.
What are all of your thoughts?
Are there any issues or story conflicts with starting the Deep Roads before finishing main story? I’ve finish d the story before and am doing my second playthrough now, but can’t bear to grind thru Emprise and Exalted Plains again. Hoping to gain enough power in the Deep Rds to finish again and then start Trespasser. Thanks!
After forcibly rehiring David Gaider to handle a server issue for Dragon Age: Origins, it has been decided that part of the latest patch would include the replacement of everyone’s favorite character, Morrigan, with an anthropomorphic Nug. It was deemed that the Nug would have a considerably light impact on gameplay as it has far more of a personality than Morrigan ever had.
The Nug is a third Grey Warden named Nuggins, & is first encountered inside the Grey Warden Cache in the Korcari Wilds, where he can be found eating the Grey Warden Treaties for food. After apologetically returning what remains of the treaties, this Nug will join the Warden’s party on his quest to defeat the Archdemon.
In DAO, Alistair tells the Warden that he was hidden so Rowan wouldn’t find out and Cailan didn’t feel threatened for the throne blah blah blah. Well Cailan was born in 9:05 Dragon and Rowan Died in 9:08 Dragon which is all well and fine, but Alistair wasn’t even born until 9:10 Dragon.
I know this is a highly debated topic and my soul will probably never travel back to the maker for starting this argument, but what can I say? I'm evil. Bwa ha ha ha. Anyway, the topic at hand is was blowing up the chantry justified? And if Anders were to caught assuming you left him alive in the "last straw " quest what would you do to him?
Can it be translated or is it already? I've looked and looked and can't find anything. Thanks.
Do you guys think that DA4 will have our inquisitor as our main character/player? (Why or why not?)
Personally, it makes sense for me if the inquisitor's still the main player. Their ties with Solas are just way too personal to have another character face him (especially if Solas is romanced). It'll be an interesting element of the game where we have to work our way from the ground up again (abilities/specs-wise) since the inquis lost an arm. They said that they'll have to turn to people that Solas doesn't know, so that means new companions-- but hopefully that doesn't mean a new player.
Edit: I should have extended what I thought with the respec. Losing a limb will cause a long rehab, but I don't see a reason why they shouldn't give the inquisitor a mechanical prosthetic arm (one-armed protag like furiosa in mad max? Way cool) But alas, I'm just a helpless hopeful
Alright so I was playing one of my characters and I had finished Josephines romance quest and such. And after a mission i come back and spend some alone time with her as usual cause im a hopeless romantic. But anyway I slipped on my joystick and pressed A and it sent me into the dialogue about "we've grown too close." I didnt want that! and now I need help trying to win my Josi back. And everytime i try and go back before it happened i get, "perhaps another time, Your Worship" So anyone please help.
In Fort Drakon next to the piled up corpses that include Mallol and Gilmore, there's a fella on a torture rack. Is he supposed to be the younger Cousland in the event he's not a Warden? And obviously in the event of a Warden Cousland he would be someone else. Assuming that's who he is, it makes his experience at the hands of Howe even more interesting, as he wouldn't have been DRT at Castle Cousland.
What in your opinion are the most useless and best abilities/spells in each of the DA games? Mine are: Useless: O: Feign Death (I think that’s what it’s called) 2: Death Syphon I: (There is a lot, but I’ll stick to the worst one) Caltrops Must have: O: Cone of Cold 2: Cleave I: Barrier
Alright,so i finished da inquisition and i wanted to play the older games aswell,i am currently playinh da origins and i dont know which companions to use,i am a rogue (bad decision from me because i dont find bows strong) and for that im using sword and shield,so which companions shall i use?(i am using morrigan,alistair and shale but ive unlocked every companion possible when i had the opportunity,i have a 50%exploration,idk if that helps.)So which ones should i use?
Edit:i have everyone excepr loghain and....oghren?or however its written
So this is an old subject i had brought up before i needed to back away from social media for abit, if this has been debated go ahead and gladly ignore but i was wondering if other people think that the armor Anduril put on to travel to the void (assuming back then it would be considered the deeproads) was made out of red lyruim. It would explain the madness she endured or was it just the fact she was already cruel and the armor wasn't truly to blame.
Recently I’ve noticed more & more conversations regarding books from the Dragon Age series, such as Hard In Hightown & Asunder, which are definitely a part of Dragon Age but don’t fall under any of our individual games Categories. After talking with Warden Nuggins about it we settled on “Other media” because it should include comics, etc, which that Category can grab up like a pool filter. So please use it for such things, & remember to properly Categorize your posts :)
Just wanted to know your thoughts on this addition, & also to ask you all if you feel like “Lore” & “Strategies” are good to keep as Categories, not getting much use. Of late there’ve also been several conversations on EA, BioWare, trailers, voice actors, journalism/ists, competing games, & I wondered if you guys would like a specific Category for such content (which would also allow you to hide such content from your view, being a Category). Perhaps, “Production” would be a decent Category for that? It’s not necessary, but just wanted to hear your thoughts on it.
Warden is of Human Noblewoman Origin
Alistair was romanced and not hardened
They found Goldanna
At the Landsmeet they spare Loghain and thus he joins the Wardens
Warden chooses Alistair to rule as King and she becomes Queen
Anora is left out of the question
Loghain is sent to slay the ArchDemon and dies doing so
Before the Landsmeet and Onslaught parts is it possible to play through the end of Origins with these results?
I've been on this wiki before but that was over a year ago. So I was just curious to see if the guidelines had changed and I was wondering who the current active moderators are.
I am always conflicted between using cole or using varric for a rogue, overall the question is whether archer rogue or dagger rogue is stronger . Or should i use both and cut a mage (Vivian or Solas)? Although i Love having them both
Hey everyone, I am new here and I would like to read the whole story of Dragon Age from the scratch. I' ve played DAO and DA ll. Can you help me with some info on where to start?
My question, can a warrior pick locks and if so, how?
I'm currently playing with my rogue inquisitor and I'm on the What Pride Had Wrought quest. I've been wanting to start another game with a mage inquisitor with a different world state. The game can only carry 1 world state though and I would have to load another world state in order to not get that default one. Will loading a different world state mess up my current game's world state?
Hey guys, haven't been here for a while, duty and all that. Anyway, I decided to run another playthrough of the franchise again and I just realized something.
Sandal, we all know he's not quite right in the old coconut and yet in the final battles of dao and da2 you find him in a room with corpse of creatures he'd killed, in dao it's dark spawn corpses in da2 it's like 5 abominations and 1 pride demon.
what he's just a normal mentally odd dwarf who happens to be really good at rune craftsmanship and what? He just defeated those things by luck.
I DON'T THINK SO!
Something mind blowing in going on with that kid.
A little while ago I saw something about him possibly being the maker, didn't really look at it cause I was busy. But at first I thought the maker can't really be a dwarf cause according to the chantry he didn't make them, but then again we all know the chantry can be lying shits sometimes.
Still though what could his story be? Hmmm
It was uploaded to YouTube yesterday, I refuse to comment lol, jk... seems like it should be alright... but we've heard that before about a million games... so I guess we can only keep our fingers, toes, and eyes crossed, lol
Any tips for build
So kinda stupid question. But as I am not a hair stylist in real life, I was wondering if anyone had any tutorials for hairstyles that match a male Dalish elf? Again stupid question but thought I'd ask
As stated throughout the lore of Dragon Age, bloodmagic reviled as evil and outlawed throughout most of Thedas. Even Tevinter publicly renounces its use.
Blood Magic is synonymous with summoning and interacting with demons, can steal the life force of other people, and has also been known to enslave others by controlling their minds and robbing them of their free will.
But is Blood Magic truly evil, or is it simply another form of magic that is easily abused?
I was a templar but it didnt feel like it suited me, so i reloaded to choose a new one, what should i be? Reaver? or Champion?
So I know that there are Dragon Age books that are tied with the games but today I found this book and I just wanted to share it with y'all. It is awesome! (You might have to make the picture full screen to view it)
We've had plenty of discussions on "What's the best build for XYZ?" or "How do I kill ABC high dragon?". But, what I want to know is, "How do you like to play your game?". We all play slightly differently. Do you play for the RPG character aspect, or are you more "get her done"? Do you have a class that you prefer? Are you aggressive or more cautious? Do you like to use the tactical camera, or are you more the type to just plow in? Is there a race that you prefer to play? Is there a specialty that you absolutely adore? Do you take advantage of the respec amulets? Do you make armor and weapons, or do you rely more on what you find?
I'd love to hear what anyone has to say. :)
In all 3 games, including DLCs, who is your top 5 favorite voice actors? I got to thinking about this and at first I knew who I'd list but as I started typing my favorites I got to thinking of others I have liked. Turns out not so easy as there are so many great voice actors in these games. But I guess the ones I like the most are the ones that make my body/emotions go excited crazy when I hear them in these games or in anything else they have done. You know like you're watching an animated movie and go... huh I know that voice who is it and go OMG that's so and so who voiced (insert name) in dragon age____! And so for me those 5 voices are (in no particular order): 1) Briam Bloom for Varric. 2) Nicholas Boulton for Male Hawke as well as his small no name random people parts. 3) Greg Ellis for Cullen and Awakening Anders (who is my favorite Anders in the games). 4) Steve Valentine for Alistair 5) Claudia Black for Morrigan. [Close one though as Kate Mulgrew (Flemeth) is also amazing] I loved a lot of other voice actors and it was hard to choose especially since quite a few have been in all 3 games playing many different parts but if I had to choose it would be these 5.
Is there such a thing? Because I love this game partly due to party banter and war table banter but for some time now my advisors haven't said a peep at the war table. I just finished here lies the abyss and I don't think I have heard anything since leaving to do WEWH and I made sure to finish all war table quests and doing every task available in all the locations we can go to before starting HLtA (including waiting for Leliana to contact HoF) and they haven't said a thing. It's weird and this is the first time I've ever had this problem. Has anyone else experienced this?
Id say either The Iron Bull or Varric they both are good characters and i havent found not much ti dislike them for but i havent done a play through with varric and the iron bull yet. So thats my next playthrough. What are your thoughts? Who do you think are the top most likeable companions in DAI?
What spec, for each class, is best in terms of dps. Also, what specs are best for group utility, ie. debuffs and status effects.
In my opinion, Reaver is the best warrior dps spec and Templar is the best group utility spec.
For rogues it is a toss up between Tempest and Assassin for dps. But the Artificer is the best for group utility.
For mages, Knight Enchanter is the best for dps. And either a lightning Rift Mage or a fire Necromancer are best for group utility. Lightning Rift Mage b/c lightning+weakness=sleep. Fire Necromancer b/c fire and necromancy have many abilities that cause fear.
What do you guys think?
I'm currently playing Dragon Age Inquisition for the 6th time and while I was walking around Val Royeaux I noticed a bard singing the song ''Enchanter'' but in French. While I was listening to the song, I guess that I just realized that their languages are based on ours. Now that I think about it, I recall characters speaking Spanish. However, I didn't even notice maybe because it's my native language along with Portuguese (I speak both fluently).
Ever since I noticed this, I'm curious about the languages spoken in other countries in Thedas and the real life language they're based on:
- Elvish, the language spoken by the ancient elves, is a cipher and it doesn't exist in real life.
- The common tongue aka The Trade Tongue was taught by the dwarves so that humans and dwarves could trade and is, what I assume to be, the most widespread language in Thedas and most like the language spoken in Ferelden and in the Free Marches I assume but with differing accents. Basically it's English.
- Orlesian is basically just French. It's the official language of Orlais.
- Tevene is the language spoken by the people of the Tevinter Imperium. It's heavily based on Latin, a dead language though with some modification.
- Antivan is Spanish. Talking about Antiva, I wish we can go there in the next installment.
- Dwarvish. Like Elvish, Dwarvish is also most likely a cipher and it used to be the native language of the dwarves. It was eventually separated into different dialects and it's now a dead language.
- Qunlat. The native language of the Qunari. It was rather disappointing to see that a Qunari inquisitor doesn't know how to speak Qunlat. Regardless, it reminds me of Arabic. If anyone here speaks Arabic, please let me know.
I'm sorry if this isn't really a question but I couldn't stop thinking about this and I felt the need to post this. If anyone knows any more lands/nations of Thedas along with the language they're potentially based on, let me know. I thought that this was interesting topic of discussion since it's not a commonly discussed theme.
I’m trying to actually complete the codex The Enigma of Kirkwall.
The one I’m missing is the one obtained via “Justice”.
Can I somehow re enter the sewers like it was when I did his quest or am I really fine with just 3 entries?
I need back in those sewers...
For me personally it’s:
Origins: A Paragon of Her Kind
I loved the story behind this quest and the suspense it had. And for me, the choices in this one were really tough as well.
2: The Last Straw
Ahh the grand finale of the game, I loved the battle so much and although the choice wasn’t hard (Templars are painted as the ‘bad guys’ throughout the whole series) the quest was extremely good.
Inquisition: Champions of the Just
First time I played I opted for Mages (My character was a mage and again I felt like they were the victims in the conflict) then the second time, I decided to make a female pro-circle mage (she turned out to be a psychopath in the end and turned everyone possible tranquil) and went to Therinfall Redoubt to conscript the Templars and I loved the atmosphere in that quest. The festivities with the nobles made it seem like a cover up for what was to come and added a thrill to the quest.
So what are your choices?
How does everyone feel about Vivienne as a companion and her personallity. I myself dont really like her personallity I think she has her head up her ass and I hate that she thinks that she is better and a higher priority than anyone and that she is so afraid of magic that she feels that every mage is a threat and should be locked away, also i dislike how she costly trying to gain power no matter who it hurts. But as a fighter she is pretty effective in combat, i myself just dont like her. What about everyone else what are your thought?
Just finished "The Stolen Throne" and "The Calling" which I both really enjoyed and helped flesh-out some details ahead of DA:O (even if some of the details were..."interesting" as far as canon goes).
My question is, what's next? I purchased a special 5-book bundle that all seem to go together:
The Stolen Throne
The Masked Empire
The Last Flight
But the synopses are confusing me - for example, in Asunder the opening line of the story is "after the destruction of the Chantry in Kirkwall..." - which suggests it's set after the end of DA2.
But... the description for the Last Flight is "the Archdemon has been defeated and the Grey Wardens are heroes once more..." - which suggests it's set after the end of DAO.
But Asunder is described as the "third book in the series"? After The Stolen Throne and The Calling.
Which way round is best?
As most people know, as a Reaver you do greater damage as you take it. But if you use the Vanguard abilities to gain guard, will it effect the damage bonus?
Sorry, I just need to put it out there to solidify it for myself: Hawke and Sebastian did not have a chaste marriage. I'd like to believe that since Varric's the storyteller, he had spun that tidbit just to make fun of Seb ;o; (since he thinks Seb's way too nice and boring). So there may be letters from Starkhaven for Viscount Tethras to take back those allegations and he just never bothers to read / write back lol
After a long gap I'm trying Origins again. Because its been a long time I've lost authorizations for all the freebie stuff (Battledress of the Provocateur, 300gold mace etc) which makes it tougher but I breezed through Nightmare with a full party. I'm now trying solo, mage is pretty straightforward but I'm finding rogue impossible. I can get through Lothering easily enough but after that it becomes horrible, my rogue doesn't have enough health to survive even a basic encounter like three bloodmages in the Circle or elite werevolves in the Forest or a gang of wraiths in Redcliffe castle.
I'm guessing this has been done successfully several times before but I'm out of ideas.
Since all of the DLC’s for DA:I are only $8, I’m getting back into Dragon Age. I would like a slightly more in-depth look into each specialization.
I’m particularly interested in Mages and Warriors, sword and shield were my bread and butter during my first play through, and I’ve been hearing a lot of good stuff about Knight-Enchanters.
I just wanna say, that this is such a good place to talk about Dragon Age! Sites like Tumblr is cool with the content, but things can get out of proportion REAL quick. I really appreciate how everyone here can be calm and just dicuss-- albeit the differing opinions.
You guys are cool, and I hope you guys keep being cool ^^
Good morning, Kirkburn from Fandom Support here.
We're in the process of enabling a new feature on your wiki: automatic draft saving in the classic editor! We are looking to roll this out across Fandom in the near future, but want to stress test it first and get feedback.
Essentially, this tool autosaves your planned changes every few seconds, so if your browser crashes or you accidentally close the tab, reopening the editor will bring you back to the same place!
You will have the option to discard the draft, and drafts are automatically discarded when you save your changes.
It should activate on your wiki within the next day or so.
If you run into any problems with it, please send a note in to Special:Contact/bug so that we can take a look! Thanks for your time :)
ive seen a lot of stuff on social media and youtube about da4. a lot of people are worried while some are excited. personally im a healthy mix of both. if you are worried, please elaborate, id love to hear your thoughts.
This is purely speculation, but I HIGHLY believe that Vaea, from the Knight-Errant comics, will be a companion in the next game.
While there isn't much to go on, it's already stated that she's going to Tevinter, where the next game will most definitely take place if the Trespasser DLC is anything to go off of. Not only that, but she's going to Tevinter FOR the Inquisition, which again, if we follow the ending of the Trespasser DLC, is where the Inquisition already plans on getting new allies to help against Solas.
Bioware has done this often enough, where they reveal companions through outside sources, similar to how they revealed Cole in Asunder. While this doesn't mean she will be a companion, she will, at the very least, be seen in the next game.
If she is a companion, I get the feeling, that despite being a squire, she'll be a dual-wielding rogue with a Dueslist-esque specialization.
Is it worth getting a pc to play my Fav. Games on? Whats the difference, if there is one? Need some info so that i can decide if its worth it, I know that you can mod games on pc but other than that I dont know if its worth the money?
It's been over 4 years since the release of Dragon Age: Inquisition, and after countless Inquisitors, choices, and playthroughs, I feel I can finally summarize how I feel about each companion, and romance option. I'll try to keep it down to at least 3 sentences, with an extra 2 for those who were both a companion and romance option.
Blackwall: I simply love him to little pieces. Even though it's revealed he was lying to us the whole time, he has a certain honesty about him no other companion matches, and with his inherit need to do good and help others, it was nice to see a character that genuinely nice and kind-hearted. He's funny without trying to hard, and the subtlety of his character, which sometimes causes me to forget him, contrasts positively against the more "loud" characters, such as Dorian and Sera. His romance, while a bit short, is one of my favorites, as it's nice to bring companionship and joy to somebody who had been alone for so long. I would do anything for him, and he would anything for me, and in the Trespasser epilogue, I honestly shed a few tears seeing the ending for Blackwall in the playthrough I romanced him, and even in the ones I didn't.
Cassandra: Even though I rarely brought her along on missions, I still very much like her, but I wouldn't consider her one of my favorites. Despite not really changing or growing over the course of the game, she has a lot of depth to her that I don't find in some of the emptier companions. She looks to the bigger picture, and despite being a incredibly devout follower of the Chant, it doesn't blind her from seeing other's points of view. Her romance was also really sweet, and possibly one of the best, not just in Inquisition, but the series as a whole, getting past the armor and seeing the real woman, flaws and all. All this being said, I do think she got an unfair amount of work, as she literally had like 2 cut scenes every time I returned to Skyhold.
Cole: By far one of the most interesting companions we've had, but I often forget he exists, which is incredibly ironic. While he himself lacks depth, he offers a lot of depth to other characters revealing things about them which we wouldn't have known otherwise, which I appreciate. I also appreciate that in his personal quest, there is no outright good or bad option, being truly gray from a moral standpoint.
Dorian: At first I hated him, but I have come to like him somewhat, though in the end, he's the only companion I outright dislike. He's vain and egotistical, and lacks enough charisma or charm for it to actually be funny, or not just incredibly annoying. I also didn't like how the handled his sexuality, as his personal character arc, in my opinion, could be simply summarized as "I'M GAY, DAD!" which kind of ruined him a little. He was the first gay companion, male only romance option, in a world where sexuality isn't really that important, and they made his character arc about him being gay. I've never romanced him because of my intense dislike of him, so I won't comment about it.
Iron Bull: One of my favorite companions, but he is kind of empty in comparison to everybody else. He's funny, charming, strong, brash, but also intelligent, and if you take the time to get to know him, you can find a man that's lost and confused, and while there is some depth, it's not really explored. After completing his one personal mission where you choose either the Qun or the Chargers, which you can finish early on, and if you're not romancing him, that's simply all there is to him. In a romance, he has the straight-forwardness that all the others lack, and I kind of dig that it starts out physical then turns emotional, rather than the other way around. In the Trespasser DLC, in the one playthrough I didn't choose the Chargers, it was so incredible to see him betray me, which added a lot to his character, and in a romance ending where I did choose the Chargers, it was super sweet, if somewhat disappointing.
Sera: While from a personality standpoint, I she's my second most disliked companion on a list that only has 2 spots, I do appreciate what she contributes. In every game, our companions have been people so far form the norm, apostates, Elven mages, a Seeker, assassins, a Qunari spy, so with her, it was nice to see from the point of view of the common folk, to see how normal people react to all this. Unlike Dorian, she does have enough charm, in the form of comedy, for me to at least tolerate her, and I like that her being lesbian isn't something that has to be brought up or talked about, it's acknowledged but not ignored. Her romance was also very sweet, but honestly, it felt more like I was just really close friends with her rather than dating her. After everything, her being just so incredibly racist towards Elves, and Elves specifically, is what irks me about her, as she even insults an Elven Inquisitor while in a romance with them.
Solas: One of my favorites, though I still haven't gotten over the BETRAYAL. He has a certain thoughtfulness and empathy, as well as understanding, while having a dash idealism that first brought me to romance him. There's so much to unpack with him, and the sorrow of his character, it's so hard not to feel some sympathy for him. In his romance, it's truly sweet, yet also mature, separating it from romances like Josephine, and at the end, you find a man torn between loving you, and doing what he thinks must be done, at the cost of losing you. If it wasn't for the Trespasser DLC however, his romance would be my most disliked.
Varric: I don't hate him, but I don't love him either, and I simply don't care about him either way. He felt somewhat forced and out of place as a companion in the game. His personal mission is alright, he offers funny dialogue, but that's about it, I really have nothing to say. I will comment that he kind of complains a lot, but I did very much like him in DA2.
Vivienne: I would never be friends with her(probably), but she's only of my favorite companions, and I have so much respect for her. She see's what she wants, and she gets it, yes, she might seem manipulative and shady, but she plays in the realm of Orlesian politics, and that's just how it is. While steadfast in her beliefs, she will at least consider the views of others, but not nearly to the same extent as Cassandra. While she can be cruel and petty, and outright rude, her charm alleviates this, and in playthroughs where I have high approval with her, she can be surprisingly gentle and caring, almost motherly to a degree. She's like a younger, more charming, cutthroat version of Wynne.
Josephine: Her romance is almost Disney-esque, but in a purely positive way. It's so romantic and sweet, it's like a strawberry dipped in chocolate. Very cute.
Cullen: A more matured version of Alistair's, but still containing it's own uniqueness. The wedding was to die for.
After so many years, how do you feel about the companions we've grown to love, or maybe hate, depending on your point of view?
Hey i just tried to get a new world state loaded and it worked for me😁😁😁😁 i just wanted to let people know to try and see if its working for everyone
out of the military units, which one do you think is the best? personally its a toss up for me between the Legion of The Dead and the Grey Wardens. a close third would be the Hurlocks.
The reason I ask is I was watching the Top 10 favourite DA characters, and then I watched the Top 10 most hated DA characters (YouTube) and do you realize that Sera is on both lists?
Funny how one can be on both lists
I myself love Sera to death, but I can see how some may not, she can be coarse and rude but at the same time comical... get her out in the field with both Dorian and Vivianne and you'll see what I mean lol.
Okay, so this might be a stretch, but I had an idea. What if in DA4 you get to play as an ancient being? Hear me out! Someone discussed the option of having an ancient elf like Abelas in your party for DA4, but what if you could play as one? What if instead of just choosing your race you got to play as the Ancient Elf or the Dwarf touched by a Titan like Valta or a Kossith for the Qunari or a Neromnian for the humans? DAI made a lot of references to the ancient races and delved into two of them with Solas & Valta. Since DA4 is supposed to take place in Tevinter (based on the ending of the Trespasser DLC), we might even get to play as an Ancient Magister from Tevinter. Hopefully not one of the ones that entered the Black City and became a Darkspawn. What do you think?
So, I had finished an Inquisition play through and as I was retrieving the Warden Anras vintage on the Storm Coast, I came across a pride demon surrounded by wraiths. It was called Charged Pride. This is my 8th play through and I have never seen this before. Has anyone else heard of this?
Just a heads up for folks playing Anthem. Recent reports indicate the game may be causing consoles to crash and even bricking. ("Bricking" - describes an electronic device that, due to severe physical damage, a serious mis-configuration, corrupted firmware, or a hardware problem, can no longer function, hence, is as technologically useful as a brick".) Until this issue is resolved, it may be safer to avoid playing the game. I don't mean to clutter the forums, just to help people keep their equipment functional.
This is a two part question.
First, for each of you, what happened to the Architect with your Warden Commander? Did you ally with him or kill him off?
Second, since I've seen the idea mentioned by other people besides me, what do you think about having one as a companion in the next game?
I've thought a bit about it, and I came up with a fun idea. The PC gets an invite to a house in the middle of nowhere (whether just outside the city or out in the countryside). You arrive and knock on the door, which opens by magic as a voice calls out to you and your companions to enter. Your group heads into the room, where somebody enters with a kettle in one hand and cups in another, asking if your group wants a drink while you wait for cookies, and every immediately realizes it's a Darkspawn. Your party has prewritten scenes, while you choose to throw a knife at the Darkspawn (which he stops with magic), and he laughs at how he hears that a lot before sharing multiple stories on how he's almost been killed by many people he's met, all while pouring out the tea. You can either sit or stand as well as decide whether or not to drink the tea, where he makes a comment that your companions cannot get Blight sickness or the Taint from him due to a special amulet he has on him at all times. Then he gets up to get the cookies and brings them back out to offer to his guests, talking the entire time. He offers to answer some questions the group may have about himself or jump right into the reason he asked you to come: his offer to help you in your quest to fight Solas. If you agree, he becomes very excited, as he wasn't sure if he would be welcome or not. If not, he just smiles with a phrase about how he had expected that and how the group would always be welcomed back if you changed your mind.
Whether you recruit him or not, he does little things to help in your overall quests, from teaching Blight magic to any mage to sending the Disciples to help you in a fight at some point to sending information or weapons or accessories to help your cause. And you could always go back to recruit him. However, you can't kill him, and no matter what you choose, his approval will always be on maximum (like Dog's was) for you as a companion. However, he tends to be really sassy whenever he's getting yelled at or blamed for something (like the whole Taint and Blights and Darkspawn in the first place) while acepting his faults in his actions. And the Magister Sidereal doesn't have to be a guy: the companion could be a girl instead.
I know it probably won't happen, but it would be a fun idea. With all that being said, what would be your thoughts be on this?
With Solas now playing the role of villain in IV, I've been pondering on the possibility that as IV's story continues, he'll grow more and more tyrannical and insane. At the start, he's a well intentioned extremist, but by the end he's a genocidal madman who revels in power and blood, just like how Elven Mythology presents him as, showing that he has indeed become Fen'Harel. SImilar to how Lotor in Voltron started off with understandable motives, but grew into a homicidal maniac at the end.
This transition comes from two things.
1. Lack of empathy towards you. Since IV's hero is an entirely new character whom Solas never traveled with, or gained a relationship with, he views you as an enemy to be removed. But as his efforts to get rid of you continue to fail, it takes a toll on his sanity and he starts to look for stronger methods to kill you. Which brings us to our next reason why I think he could go crazy.
2. Overexposure to magic. Magic is a double edged sword in DA, on one hand it can be useful, on the other hand it's like a drug, overexposure can make you ax-crazy, and I beat that's how the Elven Pantheon went crazy, they used magic to increase their power and while their initial intentions may or may not have been noble, overexposure turned them into the monsters Solas described them as. But as he seeks more power to kill you, he falls to the same madness that griped his fellow gods.
Ultimately, Solas/Fen'Harel intends to rebuild Elvehnan in his own image, destroy all other races, any Elves who oppose him, and be worshiped as it's ONLY god. The reason I think he should undergo this transition is because he's now a villain, and needs to come across as one when he still has fans and supporters in the real world.
So I’m currently having issues with connection to DA Keep. I was trying to delete data for another game and unknowingly chose DAI instead. I pressed delete everywhere. Now my world states will not activate. I’ve loaded different world states, uninstalled and re-installed. Nothing seems to be working. If anyone else has had this problem and/or knows how to fix it, help me out.

Okay SO minor rant like most everyone I got the trespasser DLC to get some much needed answers only to end up with more questions.
I headcannoned Ashären Lavallen who romances Solas who -in my opinion- desperately needed the affection after 8 millennia. And yes I actually think that Solas slept with Lavellan because if you pick the right angry/hurt reaction when he breaks up with Lavellan she demands that he tells her she was just a "dalliance" and that he doesn't love her. Which of course he can't do because he does love her and THAT is the problem.
When you talk to Kerrian (if you did the Old God Baby in DAO) he tells Lavellan he knows her "ancient" blood. This is a problem because Solas doesn't believe any of his (true immortal) kind exist. Elves of today are shadows of their former selves. And yet Lavellan surprised him. He thinks the anchor changed her, but what if that wasn't it? She really is the closest thing to an ancient elf left? A descendant?
Well then Solas's whole "destroy the world to bring back the ancient Elves" is flawed. If he accepts that Lavellan is his equal he wouldn't be able to go through with it so he breaks it off, but not before sleeping with her.
Now I think that Lavellan might actually have had a kid, secretly because she isn't stupid, and that is how she would convince Solas not to go through with his stupid plan. Why wouldn't she say so when she confronts him in Trespasser? Again she's not stupid. Her baby (probably a year and a half at this point) is hidden away and she just found out the baby's dad is an old Elven god for freaks sake. Imagine how shocking that would be!
Bioware likes using bloodlines and ancient babies to tie their stories together. A.K.A. Hawke's dad to Corphyus, Kerrian to the Grey Warden/Ancient god Soul etc. So it would not surprise me to find out in DA4 that Lavellan and Her kid might make a cameo OR even cooler be used some how by the new main arch to convince Solas not to go through with it. Though secretly I wish I could play as Lavellan again in DA4 😢
can see that there are the following when I turn up Legends: As of 2018 the game can be downloaded through web archive: have playet it a few years ago and is for fun trying to find it agien where can I find the archive that is being referred to? because can not find the archive where you can download dragon age legends
Hi! I was just wondering what the anchor/mark/green thingy actually looks like. For writing purposes.
Hey guys, it has come to my attention that the Mobile Main Page for our Wiki was somewhat out of date, specifically that there was no Codex link for Dragon Age: Inquisition like there is for the other games. I’ve since added it, & I have corrected a couple thumbnails where Origins characters were showing up for Inquisition links. If you guys notice any other problems with links or images (or the lack thereof) then by all means let me know so that I can make fixes. I don’t use it, so I had no idea it was in any way outmoded.
If you have any other navigation improvement suggestions then by all means share these as well.
One last thing; I wanted to show you guys the new experimental landing page Fandom has been working on, called Community Feeds. The details are all in the link below, but if that looks interesting to you, then I can ask Fandom to try it out on this Wiki. Just thought to share it with everyone :)
Anders went from altruistic apostate to extremist revolutionary by destroying the Kirkwall Chantry and killing Grand Cleric Elthina. In so doing, Anders sparked the rebellion he had always wanted where the mages fight back against the authority of the Chantry. But was he in the right?
By finally getting his long-desired war, Anders made it so a lot of innocent people were killed, mages and non-mages alike. Did Anders have the right to take it upon himself to start this war by destroying the Chantry and killing an advocate of peace? Or was he simply a possessed abomination of Vengeance who wanted to lash out against the object of his hatred?
What are your thoughts?
*Question at the bottom of text*
In all 3 games there are 2 types of companions. The ones that have to be in your party, forced into due to story and those that don’t!
For ones that have to be in, it’d be Alistair, Morrigan, Varric, Aveline, Carver/Bethany, Merrill, Anders, Cassandra, Varric and Solas
All other companions are optional. Yes even Dorian, Cole and Isabela (the first two joining for a mission but the option to make them full companions are optional).
Playing through the games i always find it somewhat amusing and somewhat disappointed how much more these companions are integrated into the story over the others. This is of course done because they HAVE to be there, they move the story plot further, without them, how could u have done this, or that!
And I always wished that these optional characters could get more to do, or that... the game didn’t allow you to have any optional characters, that every single companion you gain, you have to. This way it allows the writers to have SO much more freedom and characters to work with.
One mission and character that I always think of when thinking of “this” is Cole... you can ask him a question about what he thinks of other members in the Inquisiton. He will only talk about Solas and Varric. In his main quest.. the two there are Solas and Varric. Why? Because they couldn’t have Dorian... or iron Bull there because what if you didn’t have them? So the writers can only have Varric, Solas and Cassandra as “important people” to other people’s questlines, to the main story!
So my question is, would you prefer that BioWare forced all your companions onto you, and after that,after you have all your companions, some could die in like a final main mission where you have to either save “this companion or that companion”, some betray you etc. or would you want BioWare to do the same as they have done and allow optional companions!?
Just as a cool example of something they could do if having “everyone has to be a companion” is a character could say to your MP, one of your friends is a traitor, they’re working with the enemy! And you’d suspect.. all 9 or 10. If it was out of Alistair and Morrigan... well 50/50.
Just a theory here, but while I was reviewing the picture from the Rise of the Dread Wolf trailer I remembered the seven symbols, five of which are grayed out. Maybe I'm slow on the uptake here, but is it possible those symbols are referring to the Old Gods?
I mean... five have risen as Archedemons and were subsequently killed by the Grey Wardens, leaving two alive. And there are two symbols that haven't grayed out. I'm not totally sure what Solas would have to do with the Tevinter Gods, but he might be planning to use them to his advantage. Especially since the red lyrium idol also appears and we all know how red lyrium and the Blight connect.
Hey everyone, hope alls good... You lnow what?, I've beaten Inquisition an umpteenth number of times, completed my last play through, including dlc's and all quests in 58 hours, 46 minutes, as a mage, I almost consider myself pretty good at this game, lol.
But I realized I've never finished the game with a duel wield rogue, every other class a gazillion times but never them, so I figured I'd remedy that
Just wondering when it comes to the specialization, what's the Assassin all about, as I've always taken Tempest, and an archer when playing a rogue, will Assassin be better with a duel wield as opposed to a Tempest?, how's their dps?, will It be high enough to put a High Dragon down in under 30 seconds?... it goes without saying I will be crafting the best of the best for the rogue so no worries there, I am all about damage and ending fights quickly, and what is the Assassins's focus based ability like?, does it top Thousand Cuts?
Just wondering, why isn't there a codex section for Inquisition?
Now I know this is not strictly speaking a Dragon Age related topic and I could not care less about Anthem but I feel like the way it was released has some implications for the upcoming Dragon Age game.
Disclaimer: I have not played Anthem, nor do I have any intention of doing so. Anything I say here is based on the promotional material that I've seen and the reviews of others.
So for anyone who ignored Anthem and doesn't know what I'm getting at: Bioware's newest game was released last week and the reviews are... mixed. As in "more mixed" (read: worse) than Mass Effect Andromeda. One blunder is something that can be overlooked, but two in a row is a seriously bad sign. And that's leaving aside that Andromeda was hardly the first Bioware title to incite controversy in the last decade. However, there are understandable, although not excusable, reasons why Andromeda was lacking. It was handed off to an inexperienced studio and had many of it's resources redirected towards Anthem among other things. Now Anthem enters the stage and it's somehow worse. To me, this game never looked interesting, being centred around loot and multiplayer focused and from what they showed beforehand it looked generic and repetitive. So I had very low expectations and now that it's out, I'm just flabbergasted to learn that it contains even less than what I expected. This game is basically without content and full of design decisions that would leave anyone who's ever played a game scratching their head in confusion.
As I mentioned above, I could not care less about Anthem itself. My problem is, that these are the same people that will now develop DA4. Anthem was their focus since Inquisition released, they poured everything they had into it for over four years and the result is just... well... mediocre. And I saw their tweets and streams and blog-posts about this game. They were passionate about it, they really believed they had something special, something amazing that no one had done before and instead Anthem takes a huge step back in a genre that's already renowned for mediocrity. Everything I've seen about the development of Anthem makes me think that the people at Bioware are just completely out of touch. They made a game that nobody asked for and they made it badly, while thinking that it was revolutionary.
I would love to hear your thoughts on this. If you can help me make sense of what happened here and tell me how we can still expect these developers to make the Dragon Age game we all hope for, it would be greatly appreciated. I don't mean to be all doom and gloom, I don't assume that this will immediately lead to Bioware being shut down or whatever, but right now I'm just not very confident in the future of Bioware and Dragon Age.
I've played through the Mass Effect trilogy a couple of times now, and really really liked it. Recently I decided to give Dragon Age a shot. Is the game mechanism similar to each other, or there're some differences? Is there anything I should know about before starting my gameplay?
Yeah there's a lot to choose from, but I think the best for me would be... Freddy Prinze jr, I think he did a great job with Iron Bull, Corinne Kempa, Leliana's angel voice Claudia Black, Morrigan... nough said Although I really don't think there's a bad one in the bunch... well ok Blackwall could have sounded like he wanted to be there lol
Am I the only one who likes DA2? I'm well aware of the problems, but I still find it enjoyable.
It was my first DA game and got me into the series. Obviously playing DAO after was mind blowing. So maybe I'm biased.
Quite simply, what is everyone’s favourite DLC Colton across the series?
Personally, I’m torn between Jaws of Hakkon, because I really enjoy learning about the Avaar and it’s really enjoyable or Trespasser, because of how generally high stakes it feels, with your hand about to explode as you search for Solas
So, on the wiki page for the quest, which is dragonage.fandom.com/wiki/Jowan's_Intention
I read how to fix the bug at the bottom, but the simple fact is I have 0 idea how to do any of that. I've never used the toolset, tonight is the first night I've ever downloaded it, and i'm not sure where "plots" or "light content" or any of the things are, or how to get to them, or even what they mean at all.
May I get some help please? And I mean, baby me through it, I'm not a bright person.
I had two questions, thought I may as well put them into one.
1. In a Cole/Bull party banter, Cole says, from the perspective of a Tamassran in charge of Bull, about Bull, ‘He got away... He got away.’ She’s talking about, as I gathered, the Qun. Why? If she doesn’t like the Qun, and views Tal-Vashothery as an ‘escape’ why not just leave? I get there probably won’t be any answers to this, but I was curious.
2. What is Cassandra’s accent? In terms of real-world accents. It’s probably going to be *super* obvious, once I’ve found out, but it is currently eluding me.
How do you kill those high dragons in every land ?!
I've Tried So So So Many Times To Defeat The Archdemon I've Got So Depressed That I Even Started Dragon Age Origins Awakening Without Finishing The First Game I Even Tried Cheats Just To Kill The Arch Demon And I Looked In Wikipedia Everywhere I Give Up Does Anyone Know How To Defeat It ???
Can anyone tell my why sone of my DAI companions special classes havent unlocked?
Cassandra, blackwall, solas and dorians have but the rest havent. Never had it befor! Is it approval level? Is it because indont use the others?
Bit of a habit of mine to complete item sets even if you have to reload 200 times to get an item to drop, but the dragonage.fandom.com/wiki/Ceremonial_Armored_Gloves are proving particularly vexing. Just thought to ask if anyone here has found them in places outside those that are mentioned on the article/its talk page, because the Haven location is proving to be pretty fruitless.
Hello everyone I wanted everyone’s opinion on who is the best da2 characters to romance and/or rival. I ask because I’m finishing up another origin playthrough which should give me the last achievements in that game I’m missing. My plan is to go to 2 and finish up achievements I’m missing there (siding with mages, rivaling a party member, and completing a romance) but I’d like that to be as satisfying as possible. I’ve already finished da2(so I don’t mind spoilers) and I wasn’t super attracted to anyone( although I tried aveline) and I was trying hard to please everyone like in origins so I didn’t rival anyone. I think I might like Sebastian but I heard you can’t get the achievement from him. Anyway, given that I plan to side with mages this time, who should I romance and who should I rival?
To put it simply, more interaction between Spirits, including Demons, and non-mages.
It just seems like unexplored territory for Dragon Age. We have seen plenty of interactions between Mages and denizens of the Fade, such as with Connor and Wynne from DA:0, Merril and Anders from DA2, and Cole from DA:I. Spirits and Demons interact with Mages because of their strong connection to the Fade, but it is stated that they can possess/interact, and often do, with normal people. In DA:O, in the Awakening expansion, we get the Spirit Warrior specialization, which is the warrior equivalent to the Spirit Healer, in that it's a person letting a Spirit into their body for the gift of stronger abilities. From the text itself, it states,
"Although spirit warriors employ magical abilities, they are not mages; instead, they flirt with inhabitants of the Fade who agree to augment mortal abilities in exchange for a glimpse of the physical world. Naturally, the Chantry's templars rarely acknowledge that distinction."
I'm confused on to why this hasn't been touched upon since. These are normal, non-mages, given magical abilities, by letting Spirits possess them to some degree. The closest thing we've had to this is when Cassandra reveals that Seekers get their powers by being touched by a Spirit of Faith, after having already been made Tranquil. Considering we're most assuredly(probably) going to Tevinter in the next game, a land that highly values magic, normal people seeking out Spirits for the gift of magical abilities is going to be fairly common.
I'd also very much like to see more of what Cole does, in how Spirits and Demons are sort of like these invisible entities that go about making people's lives better or worse.
