As noted, shape-shifting sucks but Morrigan is a beast with Entropy in my experience. Sleep alone makes things get easy in a hurry assuming no one else goes all AoE and breaks the effect. My mage went all Primal so far except for a single heal so I don't have to drag Wynne along and it's fun provided you don't mind spending a lot of time running in circles screaming "getitoffme!...getitoffme!" Aggro control isn't my forte.
Yeah, she does seem to be. I'd like to use her as more of a CC individual I think. As of late she's been throwing out a couple of spells, and dropping into bear or spider, unless something happens to my mage character and I need an emergency heal. But yeah, "shape-shifting sucks" sums up my experience with her pretty well. Plus I'm starting to feel like I need to spread my characters out more. Enemy mages don't seem to hesitate to bomb their own with AoE, with 2 characters stuck in the melee it gets painful.
I never got Wynne, as I was afraid to go into the mage tower until I had a better idea of what I was doing. You know, with the guard saying he's locking the door behind me and stuff. I've just been going there to get lyrium dust to make potions as I seem to go through a good number of them. I'm assuming this gets a bit better once you specialize into spirit healer perhaps?
I've never spent much time on the "trade skills" aside from making lesser poultices and the lower effect stun poison. Then again, I never use anything except poultices anyway unless I'm on a rogue to use poison. All my other "potion" type things get vendored as do the components.
How are the traps? I put a point into it to try in out on Alistair. But since he's running into the fray all the time he doesn't seems to make much use of anything. Is it worth say, dropping a leghold trap as an archer or mage or something? Or is it too hard to actually make use out of things like that? I mean I can target the paralysis glyph pretty easily I suppose.
There's so much I'm still learning about what's actually works and what doesn't...
I'd expect you CAN make it work with what you have but, if you've enjoyed the game so far, start over if it'll satisfy you. You can always run the sections in a different order, try a new race/class/status for the beginning, etc. Even sections you've done can change as a result -- Orzammar for my casteless dwarf rogue was (somewhat) different than it was for my human noble warrior. Point being, if you're playing for the "experience" you shouldn't hurt by starting over.

Yeah, I suspect I could slog through, but it's starting to be more of a pain than it's worth. I'm correcting things as I go, but all those nooby mistakes are starting to be a bit much to overcome at this point. Plus, yeah, getting some more practice on the other classes wouldn't hurt either...
