|This is the talk page for discussing improvements to the Dragon Age: Dawn of the Seeker article.|
Is it really necessary to create a page of the animation? I think it would be more wise to wait, after all, we know nothing of it yet. Shouldn't we at least change the title to "Dragon Age (Anime)" or "Dragon Age (Animation)"? —Rocketai (Ho there! • Chase my tail!) 19:02, December 11, 2010 (UTC)
- Eh, I'm not too thrilled with the page as it stands, but it's linked to from the series footer and red links seem tempt vandals so after it was created I thought we may as well have something. As for the title I'd like something better too. Dragon Age (anime) is my favourite, but I'll leave it up for a couple of days to see if there are other suggestions on either the title or deleting the page.

The anime might be an epic fail according to current reviews and the fact they said it failed in Japan, but I do love the song. http://www.dailymotion.com/video/xook6e_gackt-until-the-last-day_music?ralg=behavior-meta2#from=embediframe-playreloff-2 and http://www.tokyohive.com/2012/02/gackt-performs-until-the-last-day-on-music-japan/ --184.108.40.206 (talk) 04:46, February 22, 2012 (UTC)
Not bad! DA III Expectations Edit
The anime wasn't bad, at all. Good visuals and nice voice-acting (dub).
So, after seeing the fighting in Dawn of the Seeker, I wonder if BIOWARE can implement such combat mechanics in its sequels. That is, fighting multiple opponents at once (not the two-handed swings that damage enemies around the character). Classes should be mixed in the next installment (e.g.: a warrior/rogue with the finesse to engage at least 2-3 enemies at once, stringing together attacks between dodges, similar to Cassandra's moves.
Also, I'm expecting mages to be truly a force to be reckoned with, because so far the only ones that were dangerous were the Qunari mages, in my own unholy opinion.
I'm also hoping they can make shape-shifting useful. It wasn't so far. Have the player muck around in certain areas, reaching difficult places with it, finding hidden treasure, legendary items, even eavesdropping, pickpocketing, infiltrating...etc. All that of course should also entail the ability to solo more. Leave companions hanging back in hubs, villages, cities, camps and mess about alone.
Divine is Beatrix, not Justinia Edit
Just wanted to add a discussion topic here about my changes to the page that remove Justinia from the list of characters. While an early production blog on the movie said the Divine was Justinia V, in the movie itself she is only listed as Divine. Also, later comments by David Gaider indicate that (1) the Divine was Beatrix, not Justinia, and (2) according to the official timeline, the movie took place in 9:22, whereas Justinia replaced a dying Beatrix in 9:34. The latter is also consistent with the fact that the Kirkwall reference in the movie refers to 9:21, when Meredith overthrew Perrin Threnhold. --R2sMuse (talk) 02:36, February 4, 2013 (UTC)
- If it's 8 years before Origins how does Divine WHOEVER hand Cassandara the same book Varric supposedly wrote about Hawke oh, 9-10 years after Origins? So, Varric can see the future or what? Too bad Hawke and family couldn't get a copy of Varric's prophecy then they wouldn't have left and got 99% killed/lives ruined. Sounds like mroe Retconning on Dave's part to me. Yet another example of his INabilities.--Gowihasti (talk) 10:54, March 22, 2013 (UTC)
- Hard to say. Mike Laidlaw has said that there is an explanation for the book (I don't have the tweet handy), which could very well be something as mundane as it's a notebook Cassandra takes notes in when searching for Hawke et al. after 9:37. I do hope we hear more. But, in DG's defense, I don't think he was that involved in the movie. The date he shared he said was from the official timeline. My own gut feeling is that there was a disconnect somewhere in the development process since the movie makers had a blog that said the Divine was Justinia... but it was later changed. So I wouldn't be surprised if the book scene was originally supposed to be immediately before Cass finds Varric. Time will tell. --R2sMuse (talk) 11:32, March 22, 2013 (UTC)
- David Gaider can say whatever he wants, but this could not have taken place in 9:22 imho. Even placing aside the obvious chronological inconsistencies with the book and the Divine saying that the attack was just the start (if the threat was so imminent, why did it take another 15 years to materialize?), there are a number of problems. Judging by Cassandra's appearance and obvious inexperience during Varric's interrogation in 9:40, she would seem to be in her 20s or at most early 30s and new to her powerful role. If this movie took place in 9:22, then she is likely in her 40s and has been Hero of Orlais and Right Hand of the Divine for 18 years. Not likely. The Kirkwall reference in the movie makes no sense if it refers to the 9:21 event. The Knight-Commander states that his assassination and overthrow of the Divine is to avoid another Kirkwall incident. This makes sense if he's referring to the mage revolt, but to say that he's leading the Templars into a coup to avoid scenarios where Templars stage a coup is absurd. Clear retconning in my eyes and I would say this movie must have happened in 9:37 or 9:38 to make any sense at all.--220.127.116.11 (talk) 05:23, March 31, 2013 (UTC)
18.104.22.168 (talk) 00:00, March 10, 2015 (UTC)Seems like Dragon age-fandom is becoming just as uncaring as Final Fantasy-Fandom has become(Or is it just people in general?). Both fandoms seem to be eager blaming the wrong guy, whenever they get the change. Like what artist Tetsuya Nomura is to Final Fantasy(God only knows how the fans could get in their minds that ARTIST is responsible for everything game play and story: especially when he wasn't involved in anyway with IX, XI, or XII), David Gaider is same to Dragon age. Gaider hasn't actually been involved in anyhow creating Dawn of the seeker(Didn't see his name in credits), but instead Mark Darrah and Mike Laidlaw were(Their names were in the credits: executive producers). And yet two complainers have gone on savaging David Gaider, one even after R2sMuse corrected by telling otherwise. Seriously, reading trough the credits section where it's mentioned who's responsible of what is not that hard. Or maybe the point what the two complainers were trying to make was "Gaider should be All-seeing-Über writer who catches mistakes of other people make and never trust anyone other than himself to do things right". I know that truth doesn't really matter in the internet, but still... Speaking about Final Fantasy-fans, Nomura's detractors are lauding FF XV as "creative, fresh new direction for the series" which is free of "Nomura anime crap". And in this case, Tetsua Nomura actually WAS involved with FFXV as a director and responsible for that "creative, fresh new direction for the series". Was, because he since then departed from Square Enix last September. Maybe he got tired of people blaming him about the stuff he didn't do.
