People either find him uninteresting or get pretty offended by being lied to. Child murderer also doesn't look great on the résumé. (Disclaimer: I love Blackwall, he's one of my favourite characters too.)
Hi @TheVashothInquisitor , welcome to the wiki! I'm afraid you will need to edit your post to contain some manner of explanation or question so people know what you want to talk about. Thank you!
We'll look into it and get back to you.
Do you have a discord account?
Not working how?
I think Origins still holds up rather well to this day, so I don't feel like a remaster or remake is really necessary. I'd rather they spend their resources to make sure that DA4 turns out well.
Hi Adrian, good to have you with us! Silver Warden is right in that we have a rule against posts that do not incite discussion like this one. Sorry about that. You can get around that rather easily by simply posing a question in your post, that makes it easier for people to know how to respond. If you simply want to talk about interesting discoveries you have made in the games, I can nvite you to join the discord server associated with this wiki that has no such rule: https://discordapp.com/invite/eFNT43J
When I got the decor I simply jumped into a lobby on easiest difficulty with a level 1 character and let the rest of the squad kill the dragon. No trouble at all. Although nowadays I could imagine that it's difficult finding people who still play. Just try it out.
Fiona. It was a terrible idea to make her Alistairs mum, her whole "cured of the taint" thing just gets brushed off and never goes anywhere, everything around her is just some of the worst written parts in all of Dragon Age. On top of that she is a very irritating person just in terms of her character alone.
Honorable mentions to Morrigan, Mother Petrice and Vivienne.
That one is if Alistair is king I think. Don't know if that banter with Bull always happens or of it's conditional. Either way, that's definitely what Varric is referring to.
He meets him in one of the comics. Those Who Speak, I believe.
If we are talking which companions we'd want to return regardless of likelihood (i.e. if they could be dead), I would want Dorian to return as a companion, Sten (now Arishok) and Fenris to play an important role in the story (similar to Morrigan in Inquisition), Velanna and Merrill to return as followers of Fen'harel and Blackwall and the remaining Fereldan Grey Wardens (Oghren, Sigrun and Nathaniel) to be involved in the Grey Warden civil war story.
Well all the Origins do canonically happen at the same time, if that's what you mean. The only thing that changes is where Duncan turns up. One of the Origin characters becomes the Warden(-Commander), the others die. Or do you mean what would happen to them if they didn't become Wardens but somehow survived?
At the end of the inventory list.
The silver brooch apparently disappears later in the game, according to the wiki. The only reason for him not to have a backpack is if you've already reached the inventory limit of 120 (console) / 125 (PC).
What exactly is the problem? Do the items not show up in his inventory, or does he refuse to sell you any stuff?
There's also more to consider than pure strength in combat. The Dalish elves you can recruit are more numerous than the Werewolves. Are a few thousand elves worse than a few hundred Werewolves?
Then there's the question how Werewolves fare against the Darkspawn. They mainly fight with their claws and by biting. Are Werewolves immune to the taint? If not, that drastically decreases their combat effectiveness.
Additionally you need to take into account how well the Werewolves fit in with the other armies. Can you have Werewolves fighting along humans without conflicts arising between them? How well can you integrate Werewolves into the strategies of a conventional army? How do they synergize with dwarves, humans and mages?
It's not that easy to tell if the Werewolves are actually more useful to the Warden than the elves.
Sorry about this, hope you got what you were looking for.
It might still be relevant, but the point is that this is a lengthy discussion about a different topic than what OP wanted answered and you're unlikely to come to an agreement, thereby hijacking the thread. No one wants to stop you discussing, but you can open another thread for that. It's easy. You can link it to this one. I would also appreciate if you didn't blatantly ignore it if a moderator tells you to get back to the original topic. This is the final warning. Move this particular part of the discussion to another thread or I will lock this one.
^Hmm, I don't agree that it makes more sense to get the mages, quite the opposite in fact. Yes, Fiona is more desperate, which is an advantage in negotiations, but that goes right out the window once it becomes clear that Tevinter is involved.
The Templars are more disciplined, more organized, better trained and equipped than the mages. The mages are a bunch of desperate and disorganized civilians with powers. Plus, the Inquisition is very clearly dealing with a problem of a magical nature and the one who caused that. The Templars are trained to fight exactly that.
Another reason to recruit the Templars is that their approach to the Breach problem seems much safer: weaken it to the point where it can be closed by the Anchor. Considering how little everyone knows about the Anchor at that point, except that it already caused a massive magical explosion that killed thousands, it seems foolish to pour more magic into it without knowing what that'll do.
