Dragon Age - Love and Questions

post #1 of 20
Thread Starter 
I love Dragon Age, it's easily the best rpg I've ever played..

That said, this game is one tough mother sometimes! The complexity gets me a little dizzy with the tactics and whatnot.

Any tips? My main guy is a mage, got the blizzard and thunder spells. Gonna go for blood mage soon. I'm at the circle of magi getting there help with that crazy posessed kid connor.

Curious to hear what kind of parties you guys made and your tactics, etc.. Or just great stories. The war dog is hilarious..

Make a fighter (or arcane fighter) your tank. Get him to aggro up enemies. Keep him alive. Use your mage to kill everything else.

Works for 90% of battles and makes the game boring.

Its crazy you talk about dragon age because I just started playing it too. I love it! Anyways the biggest things I did were this

Me... Dwarf warrior, all 2 handed weapons. Berzerker and Reaver. Got heavy armor from the Forrest place from mages gift quest.

Wyanne is all spirit healer. In the tactics menu I have her set to do 4 super important things. First she heals any party member that is below %50 health, Second she puts a thingy on me if I get below %50 health that will heal me if I get really low health, and 3rd and 4th if her health gets to 25 percent or mana gets to 25 percent she uses a potion for either. This makes sure she stays alive and also makes sure that I stay alive. I have not ever had anyone die as long as I had potions when shes set up that way.

I also add a tactics slot and make everyone use a health potion if they get to %10
health. This almost never happens but it does indeed keep them alive.
For my party I take Liliana as an archer and have her set up to slow people., wyanne as healer, and Ogren or Allistar as an Off tank depending on what type of enemy's I think I will be fighting. Theres usually not a whole lot of tanking going on though because I have both myself and ogren set up so we can 2 shot almost anything so esentially liliana slows them wyanne freezes them and ogren and I pick them off one by one and usually take little damage.

handle it like you would an mmo. Tank and spank it all, lots of aoe attacks.

its not a very complex game, and the character building is weak. once you get used to the game you can basically walk through it.

Cool advice, yah right now i have lelana as an archer, and alistair and tren as fighters, alistair tanks. And I have my guy as a mage, the aoe spells are deadly.

Having my war dog get a buff from peeing on a tree in redcliffe village and "marking his territory" was awesome, ha.

I'm playing this game at the moment too. My main character is Dual-wield human warrior, but I kind of regret this build. He can't tank at all, so I have Alistair in my party. But then he can't tank much either since I pretty much had all my party members auto-level up (which is a mistake!). Then I have Morrigan and Wynne for magic damage. No rogues in my main party which sucks since I miss a lot of loot.

Humans aren't the best choice for warriors because they don't have enough strength in the beginning.

Dwarf - Warrior
Human - Mage
Elf - Rogue

Thanks, I'll keep that in mind the next time I make a new character.
