Remember how the developers of the shameful DA2 referred to Meryl as a "virginal girl next door"?
I remember the writer of Merril basically writing that while Merril might appear to be typical Virginal Girl next door, she not as innocent and helpless as she may seem. She is a blood mage after all, and one whos strong enough not to fall prey to the demons she bargains with. This was in a thread bemoaning the use of "virginal girls" as love interests in Bioware games.
Please stop trying to take things out of context just to bash on DA2. DA2 had enough problems to complain about so there is no need to make things up.
I do feel like that kind of made being a warrior kind of sucky in DA2. I'm a Tank and I practically do almost no damage. Than I use one of the mages and I feel like a god. Even Fenris (who is kinda cool you must admit) is not all that great. Even though I belt him to be the dps warrior.
Your doing it wrong then. Spec as a Berserker Warrior and save your abilities for spike damage with cross class combos. My warrior was a near invincible tank that dished out comparable damage to a rogue.
hey, I love stealth RPG games just as much. But a lot of people love playing Rogues in the dragon age series. They do the most single target damage of any class. In fact, they do so much damage that they one shot weak minions and devastate tougher boss monsters. In both games the stealth mechanic is the key to staying alive as a rogue. But stealth is more like an MMO where its used to de-aggro.
I think we see a lot of mages in action in the trailers and demos because spells are flashy and have important tactical uses. The most recent combat trailer shows a fire wall being used which blocks enemies from passing through it.

Good news, the combat looks a lot more like Origins so rejoice.
