Everytime I played it again I was mean and nice to different characters just for the fun of it but with Merrill I can’t help but be nice and protective over her 😆
So, we all know Sandal is a little funny, but there is a situation in Dragon Age 2 that explicitly implies Sandal knows how to manipulate magic as humans and elves do.
During the deep roads expedition, when you venture down a bit, you find Sandal has recreated his scene from the first game, where he's covered head to toe in darkspawn blood, surrounded by corpses galore, and the camera pans around to a frozen solid ogre.
When asked how he achieved this feat by Hawke, his statement was "NOT Enchantment", with heavy emphasis on the not.
I've never seen anything but a Spell do that to an Ogre. Could it be possible that Sandal is the only living Mage?
The only hole in this theory is we never hear him explicitly talk about dreaming or any such thing. Bodhan also mentioned that the Fereldan Circle of Magi took a vested interest in Sandal, but he ferried him away before further study could be conducted.
It's always been my headcanon that Sandal is the only dwarf able to cast spells, I'm just curious how many others picked up that little bit about him freezing an Ogre somehow without the use of an "enchantment".
How powerful are player character mages compared to everyone else.? Ameridan is mage with some kind of time altering magic. Yet he could only bind Hakkon into eternal slumber. The Inquisitor kills the dragon. Mark of the rift is basically pull of the abyss with damage over time. It's not more powerful than fire mine or fade cloaks decloaking blast.
Aegis of the rift is either Ameridan's spell or his girlfriends spell. So i don't think it's an unfair advantage either. Anchor discharge isn't even available at that time. In this battle there's no rifts. If you don't use the two rift spells. It's just average magic. Yet the Inquisitor slays the dragon. While Ameridan who is probably more powerful couldn't.
In Dragon age 2 Hawke doesn't have the Inquisitor's glowing twinkle fingers. Yet Hawke defeats Meredith a knight commander with augmented power. The red lyrium made her more powerful than the red Templars. Not to mention most of the statues summoned are resistant to magic. Hawke also defeated that ghost dragon from the legacy dlc. It's one the monsters you face before Corypheus. This creature was so power it was imprisoned in lyrium.
Obviously the Warden is above average because, she or he is a Warden. Grey Wardens have augmented abilities. They steal the power of darkspawn and use it against them. So naturally they are above average.
It's so weird to me that mages are deathly afraid of Templars. Yet we tear through them like plum pie and cherry wine.
So... After having played the entirety of DA2, I decided to download the DLC bundle. I have read that Legacy and Mark of the Assassin can be played post-campaign (at least I think so). However, when I download the content, nothing shows up in my post-campaign manor. Do I need to start a new game after downloading to play it or do I need to do something to 'activate' the content? Help with this would be very much appreciated.

Why is it that when we play as blood mages? The game is quick to remind us that demons and undead are immune. Yet for better or worse Quetin, Uldred, and Avernus can bind demons. Sometimes the summoning works. At other times the spirit is too powerful to control.
Why should they have this power yet Warden and Hawke don't.
I just found this place a couple of days ago, and I scrolled through quite a few of the posts here. I'm pleased to see that there is still an active community surrounding this game series, as it has taken a place among my favorites of all time.
More to the point, I ask now what personal headcanons or theories regarding the series you've adopted over time.
For example, its my theory that, while Loghain is far too paranoid for his own good, Celene indeed quite probably intended to use Cailin as a means to re-acquiring Fereldan, despite the interest in a romantic relationship seeming genuine coming from both sides. However, I also suspect that Cailin knew this, and had measures to prevent such a thing from happening, Loghain very likely being an integral part of those matters.
I found this and I wanted to show it for any Hercules fan apart from me
Who is the Ginger guy next to Aveline?
Also Flemeth is looking very sassy dont you think? ?
I'm just having a joke as is my nature but feel free to be silly about this one
From love, to war, to everything in between, which of the franchises' famous game-changing quandaries did you agonize over the most?
In every dragon age game. There's that one character. That acts like the player characters best friend. The Warden has Alistair. The friendship can become something more if you want it. Oghren is a candidate although, he's always drunk. So won't remember whatever conversation you had .
Hawke was Varric as his or her best friend and sidekick. Whenever Hawke I looking to stir up trouble. Varric Is always there.
So the question is who fills in that role in the Inquisition. I don't think Varric counts twice. Vivienne is the only non romance able companion. However unless your politics match hers. She's nothing but a condescending hussy.
For me I guess the answer is Sera or Dorian. If the Inquisitor is a woman then Dorian isn't interested in her romantically. So their friendship is tied to a potential relationship. Same scenario for a guy Inquisitor and Sera.
I am curious to hear any other suggestions.
My defense rating seems completely bugged. At the moment i have 48% - 28% - 8% -
which sounds insanely strong but whenever i test it against normal enemies (not the ones with the very small healthbar but one stronger) i have a dodge chance of less than 10%, maybe 1 attacks in 20 does not deal full damage.
Do you know this issue? Any idea what i can do against it?
