Dragon age 2 - warrior

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 
I rolled a warrior - two hander. Playing in nightmare. Found out I cannot keep any other mele companion in my team. The warrior chops em off along with the enemies. Heck, when Aveline was on my team, she dies most of the time because I am chopping her off. Just checking to see if you guys got a 2 hander warrior if you got all ranged companions.
And those darn rogue NPCs with their backstabs - how in world can they take more than half health down on a plate armor warrior. I can understand another rogue or mage. Toughest SOBs to fight.

Rogues are OP (Both NPCs and Enemies; especially Bow Rogues).

How are you enjoying Nightmare so far? It seems to be: "Hey, I'm just going to throw 3-4 extra waves at you, hope you brought 30 potions."

Ouch, that's annoying. Makes sense though, swords in DA are freakin' huge lol. Though you can probably still go with two warriors and try messing around with her Tactics settings so she engages enemies a bit further away from you?

And yeah, melee rogues are the worst. I'm playing Origins on Nightmare (with four additional difficulty mods lol, took me like 6 hours to get through Ostagar -_-). If you check stats for daggers, they have insane armor penetration; I think the idea is they hit in the leather areas between plates that still need to be flexible to allow for movement.

I played a mage in da 1, with the friendly fire on, it takes precision, but i found it quite manageable.

Basically you want to draw the enemy into a group with your guys outside that, then unleash aoe spells, it works well, might want to try a mage roll.

I would usually do combos with 2 mages, like earthquake, blizzard, tempest. It was funny, the earthquake would knock them to the ground, then if they managed to get up, the blizzard would freeze em in place, and the tempest would electrocute the hell out of em.

I killed alot of mobs without them ever touching me this way in da1.

In Da2 mages are still super powerful, I started a new game with one, played warrior before, and I'm wiping guys ALOT faster with the mage.

Yeah - tell me about the waves. I first rolled a mage. It was fun, but all the items I was getting was mostly for warriors. So I thought - heck I am going to roll a warrior - I just want to look pretty even if I don't mow stuff up fast enough.

I started out with nightmare - any other difficulty would have made the game boring. Lots of micro management though on nightmare.

On couple fights I found out that if you keep the first wave non-elite enemies alive somehow, and then kill the elite/boss, it gets a lot easier. Works if you got two warriors or open space to run. But does not work on those darn rogue elites - their vanish and backstab is OP. I played rogue in DA:O and loved it - feel like playing something different on this one.

DA:O you can actually setup mage traps such as paralysis, repulsion and AoE spell before engaging the enemies. I remember putting paralysis and repulsion on the doorway. And then throw some AoE inside the room and just laugh while they burn/freez/twizz to death. You cannot do that in DA:2 anymore. You offensive spells are disabled until you engage the enemy - meaning they are conscious of your arrival.
