As others have said, the game is better with a controller. I have it for PS4 and PC, and even if you choose to play on PC (it's free on EA Access IIRC) I would still play with a controller. Load times + graphics are a bit better on PC but you won't really lose anything by playing on PS4.

Holy moly.

Ok, so I have 150+ hours into this game, and just FINALLY got to Wicked Eyes and Wicked Hearts last night. What an excellent part of the game. Very Game of Thrones-esque. Loved the music. It also pissed me off a whole lot. Still unsure how I gained 100% approval of the court and still missed out on the Belle of the Ball trophy. Ugh, it pissed me off. I should've created another save file. Something to do on the next playthrough I guess; but with how much of a fucking completionist I am no matter how many times I play a game, I don't know WHEN I'll be able to devote this much time to Inquisition again.

I'm level 21, currently. Need to finish the rest of Here Lies the Abyss and do multiple character quests and such. I'm in the middle of Vivienne's right now, collecting wyvern hearts. It's been such an immersive experience so far, I'm really quite in love.

EDIT:

I don't want to do Adamant Fortress... After Here Lies the Abyss, how much of the main storyline do I actually have left?!

After you finish Here Lies the Abyss you would have two and a half main quests to finish the game.

Honestly, that really sucks. I know I have some more character quests left to do, but it'll probably happen after Adamant.

Damn. I guess I've been unaware of how much time I've put into this game.

By the way, I've finished Bull's mission on the Storm Coast--ain't no way in hell I was sacrificing the Chargers, even if I didn't know what would've happened in Trespasser otherwise.

Keep your mind open plz <3 A lot of people don't like 2 because of various reasons (some of them completely valid criticism), but imo it has one of the most interesting story mechanics, if I can put it that way. But yeah odds are you're not gonna like it (as a lot of people didn't)... but give it a chance

That's what's cool about DA. All three games are very different in how they play out, imo.

That's what's cool about DA. All three games are very different in how they play out, imo.
Setting in a city set over a seven year timeline was definitely a refreshing change of pace. And the Champion's friendship with Aveline and Varric was one of the best Bioware has done. Course that's counterbalanced with the idea that had a spirit possessed fugutive and a blood mage following her around for six years without anyone in the city caring, Cassandra is right to find that ridiculous.

And setting it a single city really ought to mean you can't tell the same stores you did in Origins, an entire country at war. You get attacked by bandits in front of Viscounts gates or in the Templar courtyard every night. There's demons in every warehouse and a mage can't smell fresh air for two minutes without deciding to grab the nearest sharp object, cut his arm open and raise some skeletons. The worst day in Cullen's life in Origins is the daily state of affairs for the poor guy in 2.

Most annoyingly is a problem Origins had too, every single boss needing a minion phase. Even the Archdemon fight that you build up the entire previous game was for a large part just swatting down Genlocks and Hurlocks again. If they aren't there in the cutscene that starts the fight and they aren't there in the cutscene that ends the fight, maybe try not having them be there at all?

Anyway, onto Inquistion.

I started a new game a while ago and I just let the chargers die.

spoilers So Iron Bull is now 100% comitted to the Qun and will betray me in Tresspasser? Never knew that.
All the hours and runs of this game and I'm still learning new things about it:


Sera & Dagna are lovers if you don't romance Sera? They'd be such a cute couple.
Also Iron Bull & Dorian are lovers if you don't romance either of them? (I was reading the wiki for whatever reason, that was a surprise.)

Any tips on dealing with Blackwall?
He's in jail; and honestly I might just let him die.


I messed up a few things in this playthrough, so I know I'm not keeping the savefile when I'm done, it's very liberating, that's why I let the chargers die.

^I would spoiler tag the rest of that post too.

Re: Iron Bull and Dorian (SPOILER) yeah they end up together if you don't romance either of them but you have to encourage the relationship by speaking to them aswell. It plays out really interestingly in Trespasser if you don't save the chargers and take both Dorian and Bull with you.
