The dialogue wheel is a game mechanic in Dragon Age: Inquisition used during conversations. Instead of choosing the exact dialogue lines for the Inquisitor, the player chooses between short paraphrases of the fully voiced dialogue that will follow.

Icons on the left side of the wheel typically open up the opportunity for more dialogue, typically by offering more questions to ask. The right side of the wheel typically contains ways to "react" to the situation. Much like the dialogue wheel in Dragon Age II, typically the top option will be a polite or agreeable response, the middle option a humorous or neutral response, and the bottom option an aggressive, blunt or disagreeable response. There are a variety of different personality types that the Inquisitor can adopt by choosing the same type of tone response repeatedly. Choosing the same tone for your Inquisitor most of the time will result in more unique expressions and outcomes that are available only to your chosen personality type.
