You need high dexterity for high defense also, which is why Leliana has high defense, but she has low armor. Dexterity is actually one of the most important stats for a tank in this game.
BTW guys, my character is not injured (he does not have any of those RED negative buff icons).

My character is a level 18 Warrior (a Berserker. I want to become a Reaver but i dont know where I could learn nor purchase a tome for it).

So, would a higher DEX solve this? I will post his status points asap.

Thanks!

EDIT!:

(from gamespot forum)

"Thank you so much for mentioning about "Defense" and the actual "Armor" stat.

Thanks again for making clear that "Defense" is for dodging or parrying physical attacks (I was really confused since is most cases Defense does not really mean "Evasion", "Dodge", etc.)

So i guess it is only natural for my Melee, Warrior Class character that has 30%+ fatigue to have "no" "Defense" (dodge/evasion rate).

Right?"

-me, in gamespot..

any comments about this?

Most likely one of the items you have equipped carries a stat penalty. Which isn't necessarily a bad thing depending on the other effects.

Has anyone managed to kill Caridin with Shale in the party and not have her turn on you? I wonder if it's possible to unlock the lost thaig and still have golems in the final battle.

After doing Shale's quest I easily got her to 100 without buying any of the expensive gifts from merchants so I assume that's what they're for.

I also wonder how exactly does not killing the high dragon affect the ending? I'd try for myself but I always end up killing it. Here's a pic from last time, it was a really close fight:





Major plot spoiler follows, you have been warned.



On Alistair: the more I play the game the less I like him. His normal unhardened personality is pleasant if whiny but when you harden him he turns into a major *******. But he makes a better king so I usually harden him before the landsmeet for the better ending.
So in my last playthrough I picked up Loghain, having no more hard feelings, and he is surprisingly good. Champion isn't situational like templar and with his strength bonus he does a nice job of chopping stuff up. Mostly I just like the character more: no whining, more intelligence and some very interesting conversations. No comic relief but I can live with that. When you talk to him he comes out as pragmatic, not evil. It's a shame you get him so late that there's not much left to do with him although future DLC should improve on that.

If you marry Alistair to Anora while sparing Loghain you get to see his tantrum at the landsmeet and he stays pissed at you for the rest of the game. Even after the final battle. Which is fine by me.

There's this dlc coming sometime late december / january.

As far as mods I suggest taking a look at the respec mod and taking recruitable party members in a different direction. There's also the winter forge which allows you to make custom items in game.

You can get them married? I tried and had them both accept a marriage before the landsmeet, but when I actually got there they both refused. To the point where Anora wanted Alistair executed and Alistair left the group.
