Yeah, I feel like I'm being punished for my archer rogue inquisitor.  He's basically a liability during a dragon fight, and his AI is pathetic at times.  He just stood in front of the dragon during a flame attack and got roasted a minute ago. 

Is there a safe zone during the flap attack?  I feel like most of my problems would go away if I could manage that damn pattern.  It doesn't seem to do any damage up close, but that kinda defeats the purpose of putting an archer in the back lines. 

Yeah the only place safe when they do the flap attack is pretty much being on top of them.

SOON...the non-stop Christmas music, and Christmas TV specials, will be at an end. My wife listens to, and watches, this stuff endlessly, from Thanksgiving to Christmas. I can stand very little of it, and make myself scarce as a result. I don't mind people enjoying the season and all that, but I prefer a much more subtle and quieter version of it. Plus, I'm more of a Winter Solstice/Axial Tilt kind of guy.
I work(sort of. It's kind of quiet in a landscape office this time of year) up until Wednesday, then am off until the 5th. Hopefully, I'll be able to work in plenty of gaming time in there.

I'm totally with you. I enjoy Christmas, but hate having it shoved in my face at every turn by people. I want to enjoy it, but when all I hear is christmas music and the only thing on any tv is cheesy christmas movies I have to be a scrooge about it haha.

I'm kinda loving all the different characters you can find this time out. It kind of feels Suiko-like. I just got that Iron Bull dude last night.
I keep reaching the inventory max, and have to head back to a town to sell stuff off. This is kind of annoying, but I'm not sure what the solution is. I upgraded it once to 72 or whatever it is.
I find myself still afraid of dragons, and haven't attempted to fight one yet. My main dude is level 9.

There's another perk upgrade that increases the max from 75 to 90, but other than that yeah there is not much of a solution. I find myself just selling everything I don't need at every opportunity. It's not like there's items in the game that you need to keep that you can't make yourself at some point anyway. The first dragon is level 12 and that is the Hinterlands one, so I wouldn't go near any at your current moment haha.

Stephen and I had a huge argument about the dragon battles the other night.  I personally hate them and find that they're pretty weak on the design front.  Yes, they are quite difficult, but a lot of that difficulty comes from some cheap design.  The dragons that put a lightning aura on you, for example, cause instant damage, can't be dispelled when you know it's coming (unlike other spells in the game) and target every character on the battlefield.  It's like Bioware is saying, "Here's an unblockable, undodgeable, massive attack that's going to do some damage to you no matter what.  Have fun!"  My melee guys continually clip through the dragon's legs and spend most of their time running around instead of actually attacking.  Not too big of a deal since they can soak a ton of damage, but I find it massively annoying. 

And that windflap attack....  GOD, THAT IS THE MOST ANNOYING THING IN THE WHOLE GAME!  Again, another instant hit attack that throws all of your tactics out the window, and you have to just pray your mages and rogues can survive the massive damage. 

I know I have a tendency to rage in a game, but Inquisition's dragons just seem lazy to me.  I find it lazy to give them all of these different perfect attacks and no proper way to deal with them.  Back to the aura thing for a second, but why doesn't that behave like the fade rifts?  You see the aura as it begins to take shape on your character, so why not let players dispel it at that moment, rewarding awareness and tactics?  Instead, I tried to dispel it and found I had to wait until it actually took effect before anything could be done.  It's almost like the game taught me how to play the game and then said, "Fuck You" when I tried to follow through.

I actually find myself disagreeing with you, but it might just be because I was a warrior. My opinion could change if I was a different class. Regardless, the wind flapping attack is actually rather useless against me. I'm already on top of the dragon wailing on him so all it does is give me an opportunity to keep swinging for awhile. It usually sucks in my party members who are attacking at long range, but I never did so much damage that they were critically injured or died. As for the lightning aura you are talking about that damages everyone: I found it annoying yes, but I countered it by maxing out the electrical resistance potion and found it to be rather useless after that as well. It barely did any damage after that. I suggest that if you are still having trouble.

I'm so over the glitched trophies this is getting ridiculous. Not only did my killing all 10 dragons trophy not pop, but my trophy for getting 10 agents hasn't popped and I have about 15. This is getting so dumb.

IF you didn't get the 10 dragons trophy, you'll need to reload a save game before your last dragon kill and kill it again. You should get the trophy then.

I will do that after I beat the game. My last save before I killed all the dragons was 50 hours of gameplay ago...

Maybe it only applies to those playing on Extreme difficulty?

I don't think so. I've done some research and I guess it doesn't pop for some people unless they get like 15 agents. I guess I will have to get some more and see if it pops for me. The dragon one the only thing you can do is restart and kill another dragon because for some reason 1 of the 10 doesn't count or reload an earlier save and kill the same dragon again.

Up to 104 hours in Dragon Age Inquisition. I have 42/51 trophies, but two of mine are glitched and did not pop (kill 10 dragons and obtain 10 agents) so I'm going to have to do another playthrough to get the platinum. It's just really annoying that there's so many glitched trophies (2 others I have can be glitched and not pop as well, I guess getting 2/4 is alright but still ridiculous). I've almost finished the story (I'm on the final mission), but trying to complete all my inner circle quests before then. Other than the glitched trophies I have really loved this game.

Went through Emprise du Lion and finished off the last three dragons (making 10/10) and did not get the trophy for slaying all ten dragons because it is apparently glitched on every system. One of the dragons doesn't raise the counter so it says I've only killed 9 for the trophy, but my journal says I killed all ten. Come on Bioware...
If you have a save that is prior to killing any dragon load it up and kill a dragon again and the trophy should pop. Apparently the description is wrong and it is kill 10 dragons across playthroughs and not in a single playthrough.

Yeah I read that somewhere too. I'll do that sometime this week.

hawke didn't feel tacked on at all and i thought his involvement was fine

Yeah I didn't think Hawke was tacked on at all either. His involvement was perfectly reasonable as was his disappearance given what happened at the end of Dragon Age 2 and how Cassandra was investigating how it happened and who to blame.

Beat the game in 20 hours!? Wha? I'm at 20 hours, and I just got Dorian! This Skyhold place everyone keeps talking about is but a whisp of a dream for me. I've been mixing up side quests with story quests.
There's so much to do, and I really want to get the most out of it. I can see this taking me over a 100 hours, and I'm ok with that.

Skyhold is really awesome. You probably aren't too far off. I got to it about 30 hours in and I was doing mad side quests haha. This game is probably going to take me over 120 or so lol. I'm at 78 hours right now. Just killed my seventh dragon. Only three more!

Err, just so you guys know, you don't miss out on anything by rushing the main story. You can continue playing the game after beating the main quests just like in Skyrim. There are no side quests that you can miss. Just like in Skyrim, I tend to only complete side quests on my way to completing main story and faction quests. You can do the same with DA: I.

I feel like the game would be quite a choir to play if I focused on completing all the side quest in an area before moving on. All you'll do is over level yourself. I find it best just to hop between areas to keep exploration fresh. Feel free to skip a lot of those boring fetch quests, you don't have to actually do them. They are like the radiant quests from Skyrim, not necessary at all.

@Blace

Wow, I hope you went threw the main quests at least enough to get your extra companions. I really hope you didn't spend 75 hours with only Cass, Varric, and Solas. Have you not even reached Skyhold? Did you spend 75 hours without your specializations? God, I hope not. As I said, there are no miss-able quests and you can keep playing after you beat the main story.

Oh hell no lol. I've had Skyhold unlocked forever. I have it fully upgraded and everything. I was just going through every area and mapping it out in addition to doing all the side quests. I realize you can't technically miss any side quests, but if you just rush through the story in 20 hours like Alisha did then you missed out on alot of side content that fleshes out the characters and lore in addition to (most likely) some pretty awesome gear. I have played for 75 hours, but I've killed 6/10 dragons. I have my specialization too. I'm level 21.

Does the game let you know when you're at a point of no  return  and are going to lose access to side quests?

No, but it does mark exactly which ones are main story. I've been going out of my way to do every sidequest before going through the main story because you will miss alot if you just rush through the main story. This is why I have 75 hours and I'm not very far in the story really. I just started doing story quests tonight because I ran out of side quests.

finished the game. really disapointed with the amount of actual story content. also the final battle is a joke.

I'm curious, how long did you play for?
