Revision as of 00:16, 11 August 2013

In Dragon Age II, a Dragon Age: Origins or Dragon Age: Origins - Awakening save can be imported so that decisions the Warden made in previous games will be reflected in Dragon Age II. A player starting a new game without importing may use one of the three pre-build histories, which assume the following:

In addition to major decisions made over the course of the game, the race and background of the Warden are also reflected Codex entry: The Hero of Ferelden, amongst other codices detailed in this article.

Decisions

  1. Connor lived or died during Arl of Redcliffe. This decision is supposedly recorded in Codex entry: A Study of the Fifth Blight, Vol. Two.[bug 1]
  2. Mages or templars were recruited during Broken Circle. This decision is recorded in Codex entry: A Study of the Fifth Blight, Vol. One.
  3. Dalish or werewolves were recruited during Nature of the Beast. This decision is recorded in the codex entry "A Study of the Fifth Blight, Vol. One".
  4. Bhelen Aeducan or Lord Pyral Harrowmont ascended to the throne of Orzammar during A Paragon of Her Kind. This decision is recorded in the codex entry "A Study of the Fifth Blight, Vol. One".
  5. Support Branka and save the Anvil, or support Caridin and destroy Anvil A Paragon of Her Kind. This decision is recorded in the codex entry "A Study of the Fifth Blight, Vol. One".
  6. Andraste's ashes revealed or disappeared during The Urn of Sacred Ashes. Ashes can only be revealed by declining Kolgrim's offer and allowing Brother Genitivi to go back to Denerim. This decision is supposedly recorded in the codex entry "A Study of the Fifth Blight, Vol. Two".[bug 1]
  7. Accept or decline Morrigan's ritual during Morrigan's Ritual. This decision affects #9 and #10. This decision is supposedly recorded in the codex entry "A Study of the Fifth Blight, Vol. Two".[bug 1]
  8. Loghain lives or dies during The Landsmeet. This decisions affects #9 and #10. This decision is supposedly recorded in the codex entry "A Study of the Fifth Blight, Vol. Two".[bug 1]
  9. The Warden/Alistair/Loghain kills the Archdemon during The Landsmeet. This decision affects #10. This decision is recorded in Codex entry: The Hero of Ferelden. This decision may also be recorded in the codex entry "A Study of the Fifth Blight, Vol. Two".[bug 1]
  10. Who ascended Ferelden's throne (the Warden, Anora, Alistair, Anora with the Warden, Anora with Alistair, or the Warden with Alistair). This decision is recorded in the codex entry "The Hero of Ferelden". This decision may also be recorded in the codex entry "A Study of the Fifth Blight, Vol". Two.[bug 1]
  11. If the Warden finds Shale in The Stone Prisoner DLC and she survives Dragon Age: Origins, Corff the Bartender will make an indirect reference by commenting on the declining pidgeon population of Ferelden. In Origins, Shale can be killed during A Paragon of Her Kind if the Warden sides with Branka. Corff the Bartender's comment remains the same even when importing from a game without The Stone Prisoner installed.
  12. Avernus or Sophia Dryden spared in Warden's Keep DLC
  13. What the Warden did with King Cailan's body in Return to Ostagar DLC. Unknown impact in Dragon Age II.
  14. Amaranthine, or Vigil's Keep, or both are saved in Dragon Age: Origins - Awakening
  15. The Architect lived or died at the end of Dragon Age: Origins - Awakening.
  16. Nathaniel Howe remained with the Grey Wardens or not during Dragon Age: Origins - Awakening. The only way to ensure Nathaniel remains with the Grey Wardens is to recruit him, ensure his survival, complete his personal quest and raise his approval rating over 75. [bug 2]
  17. Whether the Warden leaves Morrigan, stabs Morrigan, or follows her into the Eluvian at the end of Witch Hunt DLC.
  18. Whether Zevran Arainai lives or dies during Dragon Age: Origins.

Notes

  1. 1.0 1.1 1.2 1.3 1.4 1.5 There is currently an issue with imported save flags where the contents of A Study of the Fifth Blight, Vol. Two are not recorded. See Talk:Codex entry: A Study of the Fifth Blight, Vol. Two for all possible entries.
  2. If Nathaniel is not in your final party, the game will consider him dead even if he survives. The only way to ensure that he will be flagged as alive is thus to bring him with you to Amaranthine at the end of the game, in addition to fulfilling the above conditions.
