FYI for ugly. None of my content aside from the main game and awakening was actually working, apparently you need to upgrade to 1.05, which is what I'm doing now.

Thanks. I was wondering where the rest was. At $10 I wasn't too concerned, but nice to know I can get it.

No love for Sten?

He was one of my favorite characters. So much sarcasm. Smiley: laugh

Weekend status: I've cleared the circle and convinced the demon in connor to leave forever and give me something, so that's awesome.

I got completely annihilated by the assassin, but beat him on my third attempt. I'm going off to get arcane warrior now so that I can try this tanky aoe thing you guys were talking about.

I'm getting better at not accidentally switching characters over and over in combat, Is there a way to lock that?

Everyone is neutral or just friendly with me, but those two quest lines got me a lot of gifts, so that might change.

Did she teach you blood magic? If not, and you have a save before that, I advise you go into the fade and get the specialization. Once unlocked, it will be unlocked for all characters, so no need to keep that choice.

Of course, that doesn't matter if you don't intend to use it. Spirit Healer is fine for Arcane Warriors.

I'm appreciating Sten more though his beginning attitude makes him hard to warm to. He's good times with Leliana though.
"You were playing with that kitten back there!"
"I was not!"
"You were danging a string for it."
"I was helping it train."

My first play though I let Sten die in his cage. I think I assumed I'd get back to it or something and left Lothering which was then burned while I was away.

My mage is super squishy but I'm not going Arcane Warrior out of pure stubbornness. I'm also forcing myself to do any relationship building the old fashioned way and avoiding the Feastday gifts.

Ha, feastday gifts. They certainly made the dialogue interesting for someone I just met.

IIRC, Blood Mage + one of the specializations in awakening will make you nigh invincible even without Arcane Warrior.

Yes, I got blood magic.

I'm not doing Blood Mage either. Been picking up all the Primals then I might grab a few Arcane (and a heal, I suppose). My elf is a good girl.

I'd say "next time" but I hated the mage intro so much that I'm not sure there'll be a next time.

I took my dog into the Fade and was disappointed at his lame nightmare.

I'm hating The Fade. The only thing worth while in here so far is a few permanent increases to stats. And a mouse.

That's the only thing worth it at all. And really, the stat increases are pretty unnecessary.

I always hate when I do a playthrough and get to that part. I can't use that mod because I have it on PS3. I suppose I could pick up the PC copy, but meh.

There's a mod to "Skip the Fade" if you really need it. It just runs you through each of your party's nightmares and then the final battle. You get all the stat increases and xp you would have gotten the traditional route.

You might need to restore to a save prior to entering. I'm not sure how well it would play with you already being in it.

The Fade and a future bridge puzzle are my least favorite bits of the game. They're just out of character for the rest of the game.

I liked the Fade on my very first playthrough, probably mostly because I rolled a mage. I don't know that I'd have thought it as cool if I had rolled a melee character because it has a more direct relation to mages. Certainly my least favorite part on subsequent playthroughs.

I didn't mind it once. I don't think I'd want to do it again though.

I haven't decided if I want to go blood or not. My character so far is sympathetic to the motivations, but I don't think really likes blood magic. We'll see.

I can see the motivation for apostates who want to be out of the Chantry's shadow but blood magic is a step too far, good sir.

Also, Jowan's a pud.

You should see how far the archmage in DA2 takes it.

First it's just stabbing yourself in your hand to escape being killed, soon, you're killing entire villages to ensure your beer stays cold. It's a dangerous path.

I don't see the problem. That's how I keep my alcohol cold.

Fade is worth doing once. If I wasn't on the PS3, I'd DEFINITELY have that mod. It just doesn't add enough of value to the game. Most of DA:O's combat is about coordinating group efforts, so why the **** do we have this extended solo, shapeshifting crap? It grinds the story to a halt, because you aren't really thinking about the mage tower at all. Worst of all, you can't instantly shift from one form to another, which means standing around waiting for your character to go from form 1, to normal, to form 2.

And yeah, I'll probably only ever go Blood Mage again if I decide to play the game as a Maleficar Mage out for vengeance.

They could seriously eliminate the whole tree but Blood Magic and Blood Wound, cut both of their power in half, and it would still be crazy OP.

Jowan is a pud because he's a whiny *****, not because he's a blood mage. He redeems himself a little bit during the Castle Redcliffe part of the story, but he mostly just annoys the crap out of me. I ratted him out to Irving during the opening mage plot because of all his incessant whining. "Oh, no one understands me! All the other mages hate me! They think I'm a blood mage! Oh right, that's because I am!" >.<

It could be that being a blood mage makes you a whiny *****. That's not a risk I'm willing to take.
