SPOILERS BE HERE
Our pastebin is back.
You use this website for saves, choices, importing and everything.
And no, it doesnt matter if you own the previous games or not, you just need to own the DA:I and an Origin account for it to work.
>Explanation on how spell/skill combos work:
>Maps of the locations:
DA:I isn't very mod-friendly.
>Where is my warden?
Doing work. Fuck off ungrateful shit.
>Why is this game so boring? Its all fetch quests and irrelevant stuff.
Let me guess, you're in the Hinterlands.
Optional stuff is optional, you're making it boring yourself. You can go back to any discovered location at any time, go do the story missions or unlock different areas. The game doesnt even truly begin until you reach the Skyhold.
Daily reminder that you had just one job.
>talking to Morrigan
>says she'll set it up so I can contact the HoF
>says something like "He's going to think I miss him. He's going to be insufferably pleased with himself"
I smiled. Morrigan is truly moste
She says that he was the only other man she had been with, and that they were only together up until she became a seeker. It's just implied that they stayed in contact throughout the years.
Cole murderknifed his dad, so probably not.
She doesn't actually miss you bro.
>Morrigan did nothing wrong
Are you fucking joking mate?
>meet Whorrigan at the ball
>she lets herself into my Inquisition and later on into my war room
>acts holy when questioned about her motives in my Inquisition
>despite Solas freaking me out about being bound to Mythals will, I drink from the well anyways because Morrigan is not to be trusted
Did the writers think we'd forget? Morrigan does nothing if it's not of her own self interest and her excuse of wanting to "save the world because it's my world too" is laughable bullshit.
It is which is why the Warden if they survived will likely never come back. Awakening was a huge fuckup and Bioware likes to pretend it never happened save for Anders and maybe Nathaniel.
>Would protagonist be from Nevarra or from Tevinter?
Chances are you're gonna be an outsider again.
>Cass and Inquisitors cameos
>OGB is now a 20 years old faggot and Whorrigan is a MILF, the warden is dead just like Alistair because they didn't fix the calling
I can see this as plot
B-but anon, I don't want to kill my warden's waifu and my inquisitor's husbando.
>no option for Celene & Briala together
Morrigan is just an arrogant girl who was stolen from her parents by a demon called flameth
I can see Flameth being being the antagonist of DA4 and she stealing Morrigan's body/pretending to be Morrigan
Anyone else notice that literally every important character you meet is black?
The horse fucker, the guy who turned against the red templers, the best mage in Val Royal, the first duke you meet, etc.
Fucking race baiting cuntbags at Ubisoft turned every fucking decision into some cis personality test.
Why are you arguing about whether or not she's an antagonist? That depends on your character.
Morrigan doesn't have be antagonistic to be a shitty person, but make no mistake, she is a shitty person. Great character though.
>vivienne agrees that templars aren't the solution
>she also wants mages in the chantry
I know she's pro circle but it seems she wants something like Hogwarts of Thedas. I might just make her the next Divine this playthrough.
But Loghain won't fuck her unless you convince him to
I really want a game set in Rivain, or at least heavily featuring it.
>completely different approach to magic with seers, hedge witches, strong involvement with spirits
>humans exist happily alongside peace qunari and semi-permanent dalish settlements
>heavy use of barter system and communal wealth
>cool aesthetic, lots of piercings and tattoos, nice armour
>generally easy-going, fun loving, festivals and celebrations all year round
>famous politically neutral pirate island
It would be cool as shit.
Ever notice that there are no black leaders in the inquisition?
Check your priviledge, it's only right that they get a lot of representation in the game given the years of oppression that we've done to them.
Rivain would be cool.
Nah Bioware would throw in something to make it an also messed up place. People thought Orlais was SJW-center before DAI and now everyone hates it.
She's an evil shitty person in everyone's game Anon, you're just accepting of it.
Any child learning of things through the ideals of Morrigan will be horribly skewed towards a life of deplorable behavior.
Alright I think you've gone a little too far.
>Also she's likely dead/gone from the series if those rumors about her VA not wanting to come back are true.
First time hearing it, but now it makes sense with how they handled her in this game. Her Morrigan reunion felt like closure. She is proud of her daughter and will let her go.
EYM would throw a shitfit over the fact the land of raiders, pirates and gypsies has a lot of dark-skinned people in it because it would obviously be implying all dark skinned people irl are crim scum. Come on man, it's like you don't even know her.
>niggers don't do shit for 1000s of years
>come to America as illegal fucking immigrants
>complain when we don't include them even though they've done nothing to deserve it
>whine all day and riot because of every shitty little thing
>"Save the world because it's my world too"
Friendly reminder Flemeth used the same excuse to help the warden in DAO
The problem of Vivi is she is too much Marie Antoinette to me
Do you think that they changed Solas' design because it was too obvious, or did they just not feel like trying to make it work in game?
Some clain it was ambiguous, and it may be so. But when I watched the scene it was clear to me she was killed, at least her mortal (Flemeth) body.
If the Dread Wolf wasn't the god of trickery, he is now.
Lies. He tricked you since the beginning of the game. Plays you and Cory just to get what he wants
Well I think the intention was for her to be annoying and polarizing so yeah the writing was good in that respect. Simply because she's insufferable doesn't mean its poorly written I mean they expected hatred from her which is why you always have the option to kick her out when you talk to her
They said they changed his design (ie his hair, it's really just the hair) because it didn't give the right impression of someone timeless and wise, which is true. He looks like a half-assed Disney villain in most of his concept art. I like the bald and reserved yet quietly confident look.
she had the power of an old god in her child and she still raised him like a normal child
for a woman that's supposedly power hungry she sure has yet to use any of it to benefit herself
Wrong, I'm actually a gay female trying to project Cass hate unto Morrigan! and I would've gotten away with it too...
Mentally flip it however you want. Morrigan is a great character who is also a shitty human being. That's why you guy's like her, but I guess saying it bluntly makes you feel bad, what with her raising your child and all.
>Explaining to Varric why you let Hawke in the Fade
dem feels, fuck this game
>she still raised him like a normal child
Making OGB love her by being a good mother and doing whatever she wants would be a smart strategy, anon
Yes, Morrigan is even childless if you don't do the ritual or weren't her lover.
>tfw I used to openly mock him for being a gross bald pyjama asshole and now I'm wildly attracted to him and I don't know why
He just looks so comfy and he has really nice legs, damnit. I didn't ask for this.
And when she had to choose between losing her son or sacrificing herself she chose to save Kieran. Sure sounds like the actions of a someone that's evil and power hungry.
>all this whining about Sera
>check on tumblr to see if they like her
>ull of bullshit like you wouldn't believe it
looking it up on the dragon age wiki, apparently Flemith takes his elder god soul shit via morrigans eluvian?
so when felmeth gets absorbed into Solas does HE get the powers?
I really hate how bioware didnt seem to bother to answer any important questions in what was supposed to end a trilogy of games
She is not a truly bad person, she just won't let anyone interfere with her shit. She stronk.
Sure, overall she still falls under the bad girl category. I love bad girls.
tfw there was a time where I was mad about girls going for bad boys but I am no different after all
>so when felmeth gets absorbed into Solas does HE get the powers?
>I really hate how bioware didnt seem to bother to answer any important questions in what was supposed to end a trilogy of games
DA isn't supposed to be a trilogy, they have up to five games roughly planned out.
I mocked him to pester DG and now look at me.
I'd such plans, asunder, so many cocks and different characters I was going to try and now...
>What if something happens to you? What about your son?
>Kieran is... a strong lad. He will thrive, with or without me.
Naw she is willing to give up her ten year old son for more power.
I feel your pain.
>make a new character to romance Cullen
>take one look at Solas and decide to go back and start the same playthrough again.
>I've now played the same character three times and romanced Solas every time
I never planned to romance him and I'm very stubbornly sticking to that plan. No chrome domed long legged mack daddy is going to ruin this for me.
She says the risk is a loss of something personal for duties sake. It's obvious she wants the power more than her son. It's just that dialogue plays out that that way rather than the more logical something happens to her son because lazy writing.
Not really. Bianca's family just forced her to marry some random dude she holds no real feelings for. If anything the husband is getting NTR'd
You know you want it.
Far more interesting then Dragon Age IMO.
Not that Dragon Age as a whole is bad, its just terribly generic and suffers a lot from Bioware's poor attempts at "DECISIONS!" which always end up like Mass Effect 3 did in the end.
Where do i find a tier 3 mace schematic? I want to bash heads in, m8.
No she doesn't. She cries a bit and gets back her son and still gets the power. The whole situation was a cop out
Top Lel was never moste that was always Zevran
Some random tumblr: http://magnoliias.tumblr.com/
>mfw no Solas smut yet
>magic time traveling psychotic robots and Music based magical "dwarves" who use tonal architecture to fuse thier entire race into a giant robot god thats so powerful simply turning it on causes Akatosh, who is actually lorkhan, sithis, Anuiel, Anu, and Padomay all at the same time, to go into a coma.
I know I know I want it, but I'm not going to get it. I have all my playthroughs planned out and none of them involve heterosexual elves.
No the old gods power is lost, Flemeth absorbs it from Kieran.
Regardless of how it played out, she still offered her life willingly to save Kieran. As Flemeth had planned all along.
>mad that a game manages to flawlessly combine eastern Buddhism with western mythological icons instead of just being copy paste generic wetsern mythlogy like DA is.
You mad son?
I checked kinkmeme yesterday. There was nothing there but one shitty self-insert fill and a 30 chapter fic about helping Cullen through Lyrium withdrawal.
>but Bethesda has pretty much abandoned the interesting parts of the lore as of late.
>Both Skyrim and Oblivion just felt like generic fantasy romps.
The entire main quest of Skyrim WAS about that shit.
Read the Arcturian Heresy, or shor son of shor.
im playing origins for the first time
what are some essential mods? i already have the ones that give me a bagillion different hairstyles
ALL OF THEM.
But nah, bro check the nexus, the top listed mods there covers most of the essentials.
Not sure if there's a mod to fix the high level casters casting "Crash to Desktop" though.
>10 dollar words
>mfw I unironically read and enjoyed a fic about Qunari Inq getting Sera a magic dildo
time to become an hero
Maybe I'll try drawing something, but I have a hard time imagining Solas having sex. Less so than before the game came out though.
>not writing your own disgusting fanfiction
How do I know if I have the banter bug? I felt like my party members were chatty when I first went into the Hinterlands, now I'm farther into the game and they don't seem to talk that much.
Are you on drugs? The core mechanics of DA2 are that of an action game through and through
Parts of DAI were supposed to be DA2's exalted march expansion pack. I'm guessing it was originally about Hawke outrunning Chantry forces and them stumbling across something weird going on with the Wardens.
>Expecting choices to matter
Seriously though the unharden/harden stuff changes barely anything since it happens so late. It changes the ensuing convo when you return to skyhold, her reaction to being considered for Divine and one slide on the Divine ending. She still acts all friendly and nice when you return to skyhold at the end after beating Cory.
Because of him. Now leave, you are unwanted here.
I'm sorry bro, but you are just ignorant.
In 2, click on a target and you auto attack it, your attack value is compared to the defense value of the target, a random roll is made to see if you hit. Just like in Origins, and unlike Inquisition.
Faster animations did not change the fact that 2 and Origins had traditional cprpg combat mechanics. Only the remains of that system exist in the combat of Inquisition. Now we have a pesudo action rpg broken mess where all dodging is boredline useless but it doesn't matter because I can craft armor that ensure dragons do 1 damage to me anyway.
Origins and 2 are far more alike mechanically than Inquisition, and it takes a pleb not to comprehend that.
Not really. We do have a surrogate child though.
>tfw you will never raise your autistic spirit child with your ancient wolf-god husband.
If there happen to be any drawfags in this thread, I have an idea. I'd like to see a male Qunquisitor, Cullen, Cass, Toplel, and Jojo singing the Inquisition song from Mel Brooks' History of the World: Part 1.
I don't think you know what tactical means
>No real info about the origin of the blight
>We still dont know what the black city really is
>We still dont know what the deal was with the red lyrium and the ancient dwarven Thaig
What exactly is there to get from this game lore wise that actually matters?
After the battle at Haven I've made my guy go full on "I am Andraste reborn" Everyone except Cass Josie, Varric and Blackwall are kind of shitting their pants it seems.
Josie's gonna get some of this holy D
The issue is action combat in DA2, which does not exist.
Go ahead, name all the action elements in the core mechanics implemented that were not present in Origins.
Protip: There are none.
so nothing that has actually mattered at all to anything in the plot thus far?
Gee thanks Bioware.
> where the Eluvian goes
that was revealed in a book before DAI came out.
Anon, I've got bad news for you.
That got me thinking. Now just bare with me, what if when dwarves die and "return to the stone", their souls become lyrium. Think about, dwarves are the only race that can physically handle lyrium safely. Would explain the whole lyrium is alive bit.
>yfw Cullenfu has been getting high on concentrated dwarf souls.
I know this theory is absoulutely insane and I cant back it up at all, but fuck it. Why not?
Your shitting me right?
The entire first game, its expansion, and even some of its DLC, were about the darkspawn,
Darkspawn also are heavily present in DA2, and serve as a focus for the Legacy DLC, AND the main darkspawn fro mthere comes back as DAI's main badguy.
its been Darkspawn since day 1
Why is Blackwall so terrible?
He seems exactly like what I imagined him to be so far:
Hot as hell and unfortunately off limits to me.
Does he kill a child or something later?
>The entire first game, its expansion, and even some of its DLC, were about the darkspawn,
Because you're a warden.
>Darkspawn also are heavily present in DA2
Outside of Legacy no they aren't, they just pop up in a few areas because the game's earlier years take place during and right after the Blight. You go into the Deep Roads, yeah, but not because of darkspawn.
>AND the main darkspawn fro mthere comes back as DAI's main badgu
And he's after ancient elven magic and wants to make himself a god.
>Because you're a warden.
Which changes nothing...
>Outside of Legacy no they aren't,
did we play the same game? they appear in many places.
>And he's after ancient elven magic and wants to make himself a god.
>And he's after ancient elven magic and wants to make himself a god.
Hes after a way into the black city.... the elven magic is just a maguffin to that end.
and Darkspanw wants to be a god.... you mean like the tevinter magisters who supposedly become the first darkspawn?
>they appear in many places.
But the game isn't ABOUT the darkspawn, it's about the mage and templar conflict. There are lots of giant spiders too in all three games, should we say now there's a plot about giant spiders?
I think what you mean to say the games share a theme surrounding the blight and the taint, and with DA2 it's only really because of Legacy.
How are would it be to make Cooper? Also what class should he be?
I'm trying to make someone. I'm not sure it's good so guess who I'm trying to depict so I can judge how far off I am.
If you get it please give advice on how to make it better.
Are there just areas in places that for high level revisists? Because I'm hanging around Hinterlands and the Ferelden Frostback and one of the river rifts are like double my level and I'm getting BTFO.
So what real world countries are analogous to Thedas nations?
Fereldan = England
Orlais = France
Old Tevinter Imperium = Rome
Modern Tevinter Imperium = Byzantines
Qunari = Ottomans
Nevarra = Prussia
Antiva = Italy
Anderfels = Germany
Free Marches = ?
Rivain = ?
Is it just me or is that Orlais Party quest unusually hard? The enemies were all super easy, but because I couldn't find a single supply cache by the time I got to the boss I had 2 health potions to go around.
I managed to scrape by somehow, but I'm only on Hard Mode, can't imagine doing this on Nightmare without just savagely grinding an extra 10 levels.
>Cass and Bull want to get together
>Blackwall and Josie want to get together
>Dorian and Bull get together
>Solas and Cullen are the only options left
>Solas leaves at the end
DA:I is like a shippers dream.
Yeah Olivia Wilde
She is. She honestly believes her experience is equivalent to what all mages experience. She doesn't understand that, as a human and as a genius mage with a personal connection to the most powerful person on the planet, she gets an extremely easy ride. She's one of the few people who actually need to check their privilege.
Since Cass is the middle ground it seems she can become Divine with any choice. But it is a key decision in influencing the Divine choice. I can't recall anyone getting Divine Viv with free mages
>lelel we made the catholic church only its headed by womyn now!
>so edgy and thought provoking!! :^)
If TES lore is shit then DA's is complete and utter garbage.
Problem is both actually have half decent lore and you're just mad as fuck for some reason.
Playing in nightmare gave me something nice
Toplel will be my divine because
>she honestly believes her experience is equivalent to what all mages experience
Except she actually says in game she knows that's not the case and that she's not delusional enough to believe every circle experience was as pleasant as her own.
Which banter were they talking about?
I had other the other day where Bull was hitting on Cass, and offered to stop after she said it would never happen. Her telling him that she didn't mind came across as being less about her attraction to him, and more about how it's sometimes nice to be flirted with.
... that's probably not an interpretation that should reach tumblr's ears.
>top lel won't teach me to be a bard
looks like i'm gonna have to kill her again
Listen to that, its got all of it. Tumblr doesn't care about Cassandra since they don't care for straight romances, even if Cass and Bull had no banter they would still probably ship it anyway. Bioware just cut out the middle man.
>go look early in the thread they were trying to shift the blame on too how bad Morrigan is
That literally had nothing to do with Cassandra.It started because one guy got butthurt when someone else said Morrigan was moste.
Which she is
It's literally one guy saying this is the case when the banter suggests she's not really interested.
I think he's still upset that he made her divine and she dumped his sorry ass
I think the Anderfels seems cool
Hopefully someone can correct me if I'm wrong since it would help narrow down how it works but I've yet to see Viv with free mages and have yet to see Top Lel with anything other than free mages.
this aint so bad. He doesnt seem to apologize for shit. Let's them know that all he does is write Tevinter Faggots for The Iron Bull to pound and not make the forums /character friendly for tumblrites
You know who'd be a cool cameo?
