1) Why the fuck are you playing on Hard on your first playthrough? 2) If you've died so many times why haven't you switched down to normal?

While the change in the healing system wasn't my favorite choice, it's also not that big of a deal. You have resupply caches in every party camp and in every checkpoint in story missions.

Fangu wrote: I have questions for people who are past the spoiler-mark (myself included) (as in, you don't consider anything a spoiler anymore):

(SPOILER)
  • Can you go to that northern Grey Warden village/city? I thought you could (and when I say 'you', I mean your Inquisitor, and not your advisers)
  • How the hell do you get Vivienne?
  • If you don't encounter Morrigan, will Vivienne take her place in the 'Well quest'?
  • Related to above: Do you only get Morrigan if she performed the ritual in Origins (thus getting pregnant)?
  • Somehow along the way I lost Blackwall in Skyhold, AKA he doesn't show up anywhere on my map - is this a bug? He was still listed as being in my party.
(SPOILER)
-Do you mean Weisshaupt Fortress? If so then no. A lot of people think it's gonna be one of the locations for the next Dragon Age game. I think it's also likely that it will a future DLC.
-When you go to Orlais for the first time, you get an invitation to her party. It appears on the map right on top of Orlais. You go to the party and she offers you her services. Did you play the whole game without ever recruiting her? Her Knight Enchanter specialization is a game breaker.
-You will always encounter Morrigan so no.
-Morrigan will always appear.
-You probably lost him when his personal quest was activated. After a certain point in the story (I think it's Wicked Hearts) he leaves Skyhold. His Tarrot Card will have an X on it. If I remember correctly when you go to the stables one of Leliana's agents tells you what happened.

1) Because trophies. And I don't normally play those difficulties, I actually wanted a challenge. I'm more used to it now than I was in the beginning.

2) Because 1).

Also, can you correct the spoiler tag? I haven't read it, I squinted immediately.

Edit: Never mind, you've done it. Good girl.

Have fun getting the Dragon Hunter trophy on Hard then. That's what second playthroughs are for.

I can't even tell if you meant to write Chocobo stables or not, Lex, and at this point it's funny either way.

Btw Inquisition won Game of the Year last night at "The Game Awards" in one of the few smart decisions that show made.

Never forget the fake DJ, never forget.

Okay. My boyfriend's friend is here so we created a new character because he wanted to see the game. I thought setting up a controller with the game would be pain, so I never tried it in my previous run. But I did this time, because my friend picked Dagger Rogue and it was near impossible controlling the character while combining regular attack with abilities. And oh my god. This game wasn't just made for console, it's USELESS with a mouse and keyboard compared.

Anyone considering playing this game with a keyboard and mouse: DO NOT DO IT. I REPEAT. DO NOT.

Not just because keyboard + mouse takes much longer and is fiddly and clunky as hell, but also because with a controller, there are UI components you don't get with a mouse and keyboard, like a large DA2 style marker on the map for the main story, which is, you know, REALLY HELPFUL??

Goooooooooooooodddddddddddddddddd

They should never have released the PC version. NEVER.

I think your PC version may be broken? I found the controls massively improved from the previous game and the story quest marker (as well as active quest marker) was always on the map for me.

Idk why it'd be different for yours?

I do think there might have been something catastrophically wrong with your version fangu. I mean to miss Vivienne entirely, I honestly didn't even know that was possible.

XD

There's something about his beard... I want to pet it? And kissing him would be like kissing a wet guinea pig...

I have a f!elf pt going on right now though, a sneaky, opportunistic elf who initially doesn't give a fuck about anything but who ends up growing quite power hungry. She flirts with EVERYONE, but the only person she would actually end up romancing is Iron Bull, because of his sincerity. But, I heard the break-up writing in this game is quite good, so if I can get Blackwall on my team, I might romance him and dump him, because I think his romance would be interesting. He's really precious.

Although I guess you can't sleep with two people? Or can you?

Romance stuff aside... on this new pt, I picked up Vivienne and OH MY GOD GAME HOW CAN YOU NOT MAKE VIVIENNE A MANDATORY PARTY MEMBER honestly it's like when they made Sebastian a DLC in DA2 when Sebastian sheds soooooo much needed outsider insight and light on the bee hive that is Kirkwall why would they do that?? and SHE BRINGS SO MUCH STUFF TO THE TABLE AND HER DIALOGUE IS SIMPLY GOLD ALWAYS RECRUIT VIVIENNE ALWAYS ALWAYS and same with Iron Bull, he's hilarious. Good man. Good man.

Honestly it scares me how some parts of this game is up to standards while the rest is downright facepalm

I also picked the Templar side this time and Cole spoilers honestly I hated Cole in my first run because I had no idea what he was and what he was doing there, picking him up in the Templar quest sheds SO MUCH LIGHT on his character and where I couldn't kick him out faster in my first run, he is now one of few people my Inquisitor tolerates.

Dorian is also really great at being offended when you pick the wrong quest XD

Basically: In Hushed Whispers is dull, repetitive and stupid (and ends in a major plotstopping bug on PC), Champions of the Just is fun to play, interesting and kind of creepy (in a good way). Again with the uneven writing*. Also, BARRIS FFSSSSSSS!!!

* It's like - the minute you're set up to encounter the antagonist, it's completely downhill story wise. I sat there yesterday going 'wow, it really turns to shit in the snap of a finger'. I was enjoying my elf's story and really getting into her character when all of a sudden she's offered these completely melodramatic dialogue choices where all of them seems to want to squeeze you into this 'I take myself way too seriously' horse shit. In an attempt to get through the game with my quiz as I headcanon her, I'm going to choose all the troll answers and see if the VA even closely resembles the Inquisitor that worked perfectly fine for the first 10 hours of the game.

Hard is honestly not difficult in this game, especially if you stick with it in the early stages and get a level advantage. The way the game scales to the player (ie. not at all) means that the player can also control the way many encounters play out before they even happen.

And also, people are finding pretty easy ways to break the game mechanics in order to be nigh-untouchable, especially the way Barrier and Guard mechanics work (cough Knight Enchanter cough)

Besides the dumb cheesy music performances (exc. Koji fucking Kondo and dancing violinist lady) I honestly thought these new Keighley award thingies were alright? Most of the nominees in every category pretty much deserved what they were nominated for and all the upcoming content was game-related and it felt much more down to earth
