I just installed this game and I really want to like it, but I'm finding it rather hard to get the combat down pat. It wouldn't be so bad if I actually get to use combat more, but so far I've been playing for around 2-3 hours and it's pretty much just talk, talk, talk, talk, talk, talk, talk, talk, go kill 10 enemies then, talk, talk, talk, talk, talk, talk, talk, talk, talk. Don't get me wrong I like a great story but it's frustrating me having to learn the combat and the story is taking up most of my free time. Gosh, couldn't they have made the tutorial mission have some lengthy combat to help the noobs out a little. Reminds me of KOTOR which I haven't played in years.

The game takes time to warm up to, but if you like lengthy storylines, the intense combat is worth it.

If you get stuck at a certain point, just rethink your tactics. Remember to pause, and plan out each spell/attack.

Have fun.

Turns out there's a specific tactic for him. You have to tell your party to hold up at the second set of stairs, then grab the character with the most HP and aggro him (hey this kinda feels like WoW!).

Make him teleport away once, and some skeletons will spawn. Pull them up the stairs to your party, and kill them. Wait a bit, then make him teleport again - more skeletons will spawn. Kill those, and he should cast some AoE over the entire lower area. After he does this, he will no longer teleport away.

You don't have to do all the dialog, you know. It's there, but just like in real life, you don't have to discuss everything with everyone.

Has anyone managed to redeem the codes for the extra content from the collector's edition? I couldn't get my bioware social network display name to validate until just now, and now I can't find where to redeem the codes? This game is epic, been waiting for it for the better part of a year, but this is a pretty big fail on bioware's part.

The Warden's Keep code can be redeemed at your camp (you have to advance past Lothering to get there), by talking to a NPC.

I imagine the Stone Prisoner code can be redeemed in a similar fashion - you'll be presented the opportunity. Most likely, you find him somewhere in his frozen form, then you can talk to someone, or maybe even him, to unlock him. They said there's a questline associated with him, so there will probably be a NPC with a quest for you nearby. One of the dialog options will show interest in him, and say (Download DLC) or something like that.

No problem. I stumbled upon it when I was looking to troubleshoot my DLC.

This game is f'n long (not complaining, more like "finally a game that doesn't end after 4 hours"). I've played for 16 hours and have completed 15%. The beginning of the game definitely seems to have almost more talking than fighting, but I think that it slowly progresses to a more even talking/fighting.

**Minor Spoiler**



I tried fighting Flemeth at level 11 and got rolf-pwn. My mage got one shot by her fireball (after the other 3 had already died). That was probably my shortest fight ever.
