I'm doing the Redcliff mages quest. Love it.


I know right, In Hushed Wisphers is one of the best missions in the game. Everyone should play that mission at least once just for the experience.

ok so I just discovered a glitch that basically gives Sera infinite focus and made a youtube video about it.

Ah, could post the youtube video here so we can actually watch it? :P

i got some glitch where if you customize a certain character your voice changes if it isnt the default for your race and bioware seems to be dragging it's heels about fixing it =/

Apparently your new to Bioware patches. Don't expect one until several months from now.

Sadly, there is no weapon swapping in DA: I.

For anyone who wants to know how to use the Tactical View correctly, check this reddit post out:

Just got to Skyhold. Loved the mission immediately prior to Skyhold.


Yeah, that mission's name is "In your heart shall burn". I love how your troops are so loyal and willing to lay their lives down for you. The game does a great job of showing how you earn the right to be the leader of the Inquisition.

@Parn If your playing a gay elf then who are you planning on romancing? If its Dorian than you'll want to do the mission "In hushed whispers" to get him asap. Though Iron Bull is a really funny romance. Freddie prince jr hits the ball out of the park with Iron Bull. Yes, it IS that Freddie prince jr. who is the VA for Iron bull, believe it or not.


As for the combat, I feel like its most similar with DA 2 with its cross class combo system. However, the skill trees are a lot less restrictive in how you level up and unlike DA 2 there are no useless skills. So I'd say the skill trees have been improved over DA2.

I guess I could take a look at what quest is actually the main quest (does it say?) but I haven't looked at the quests. I find myself running around exploring. And that is not a bad thing, but I could get on with the main story a bit more and come back and explore later.

Yes, your quest menu lists main story mission in its own section as well as companion missions in another. Its well organized.

The funny thing is that the main story quest will quickly send you back to the hinterlands so theres no need to explore it immediately.

I suppose its a testament to how fun the exploration is in the game that people don't want to leave the hinterlands once they get there. lol

the problem is the games narrative makes you think building the inquisitions infrastructure is super important.

It is, you need to do quests in order to gain power to unlock different areas and access story missions. However, the beginning missions don't need much power and once you do the first few missions you'll be able to recruit 4 more companions! You can get to skyhold and start accessing your class specializations at lvl 8. As I said, I'd suggest just following the story till you get to skyhold.

Then again, some people just like to ignore the story and randomly wonder around but even in this case I would still suggest at least getting to skyhold. You specializations can change a lot in how your class plays. For example, Knight Enchanter and Reavers offer large changes in playstyle for mages and warriors respectively.

I've said this before and I'll say it again as many times as needed. If you want a more structured traditional Bioware story focused experience then get the *bleep* out of the hinterlands and focus on the main storyline quests. The storyline is as fantastic as you'd expect from Bioware but you need to actually do the storyline quests and not just wonder around aimlessly in the hinterlands. Seriously, sometimes I think this game is too big for its own good. lol

Also, if you want a tanky frontline melee mage, play a Knight Enchanter. Its SO much better than playing as an Arcane Warrior from Origins. You can easily cast a lot spells, have an infinite barrier, and constantly spam your melee energy sword attack. It also has the only heal in the game. Laugh as you solo tank Dragons.

the map in this game is horrendous especially in the hinterlands. theres mountains all over the damn place. so sometimes a quest marker that looks like its a stobnes throw away requires you to trek half across the map then double back...wtf....

Yeah, the maps can be a pain in the ass. I miss the spell from skyrim (clairvoyance) which gave you a trail to follow while completing a quest.

I'd also suggest following the main story till you get to skyhold. This will unlock your specialization missions and the spec trees add a lot of fun to your characters build. You can run around the hinterlands for 20+ hours and not make any story progress. While your free to ignore the story if you want, just like skyrim, this game does have a good storyline so its worth following, unlike skyrim. lol

The AI is decently smart this time around. Dagger Rogues will try to get behind enemies to flank them, companions will set off Combos if they have a skill available to do so.

So you're saying trust the AI a little more?  I could try that.

I'd also like to go on record saying that Cassandra is one of the most tsundere-type of characters I have seen in a long time, but in a good way.  Tough as nails, takes no crap, and highly focused, yet she has the most adorable tender side.

Indeed, Cass is getting a lot of love on the Bioware forums (BSN). It takes effort to get her to show her softer side but its worth it.

i feel like i'm doing something wrong cause i'm just dying too much and i dont want to have to go a camp every single time i run out of potions. it feels like enemies hit harder and are more durable than my characters. and i dont have the healing to make up for it. im level 6 at the rescue the missing ferelden soldiers mission and i can easily get wrecked there by undead.

No wonder you are getting wrecked. That area is probably a bit too hard for a level 6 party. There is no level scaling in this game. You can and will meet enemies far too hard for you to beat. Come back latter at a higher level.

Another TIP, make sure to make use of cross class combos. Just like in DA 2, cross class combos do massive damage and will make killing tough enemies a lot easier. Read the tutorial codex's for the entry on combos. A simple one is using Mighty Blow on a frozen enemy. This shatters the enemy doing a lot more damage.

Read this thread for all the info you need on the combo system in DA: I:

I want to play a mage because I'm always a mage but I sort of want to be a rogue because I know there'll be a ton of locked chests and doors (I'm guessing)

There are now secrets that only warrior and only mages can unlock. So you'll need 1 of each class to unlock every treasure you find.

And yes, shield enemies have a ton of health. They are tanks. Another strategy is to have your tank keep the shield enemy distracted while the rest of your team kills softer targets like archers.
