    Re: Dragon Age: Origins

    I found it was very rare that I bothered using pots.

    I tend to let some of my team die when I could have saved them with pots but I have always had a problem with consumables. They get up almost straight away again... I keep them until I Really need them, at which point it tends to be to late :/

    I enjoyed the circle tower as well, esp that spoiler bit but know just as many people who hated it :/

    Re: Dragon Age: Origins

    I used them a lot, even with 2 mages in my party. Warrior would run in, cast taunt. The mages were set up to constantly cycle through all the top tier AOE attacks on groups. Meaning my warrior got hammered by magic constantly.

    At first I ran out a lot, but then I noticed that elves sold infinite elfroot for pennies and bodehn did the same with flasks.

    Re: Dragon Age: Origins

    Noticed a patch downloaded for this on Steam today - loads of changes including:
    Dexterity for daggers is fixed.
    Various crowd control spells have been nerfed.
    Better stamina / mana regen in combat and while exploring.
    Shimmering shield is nerfed.

    Lot of other stuff too. Overall seems pretty good.

    Re: Dragon Age: Origins

    Just completed this after sinking so many, and on the whole, enjoyable hours into it. The end battle annoyed the living crap out of me though. May start again to play the different Origins through but I certainly got my £25 notes worth out of it....

    Re: Dragon Age: Origins

    Running two stories side by side at present. My first one which is about 60% way through is an Elf Mage and the new one is a Dwarf Warrior. It's so much easier as the warrior as you can tank it, as a mage, constant use of pots, freeze with cold spell and then run and fire lighting at distance and then repeat.

    Re: Dragon Age: Origins

    Just finished my rogue playthrough - much easier than mage as it turns out. Starts off a bit weak, but boy does rogue scale up in the end game - get behind something with momentum up and the backstab damage is insane.

    Gonna try a ranger build next, then I guess I might try a warrior at some point.

    Whoah!

    I'm currently at the Redcliffe night battle. It seems to go on forever. I'm at the bottom by the lake, but once I kill the undead, another batch keep appearing. Am I missing something here as I scoured the area and can't seem to find any progression.

    Nope, it does go on for a bit, but does finally end.

    I got it before Xmas and did enjoy it. I think I racked up about 60 hours to complete it. Started with a Rogue archer, but got bored by Lvl 11 and started a female Mage Arcane Warrior. Was for more enjoyable, and with 3 mages and Leliana was fairly straight forward. Trying to keep them all under control was bit of a pain, and the tactic slots looked to be a really useful tool, but I just couldn't be bothered to set it up properly! Nothing more annoying than when one of the mages wastes a spell you want to use.

    It eventually ends. I was not very strong at that time, so I kept making the zombies chase me up the hill where then the other soldiers could help out. I think I did that a good 10 times

    Re: Dragon Age: Origins

    I honestly could not get into this game no matter how hard I tried. I played as a mage and got to about level 12 and found it incredibly tedious trying to make my party do what I wanted it to do. Felt as if they all just got completed wiped up even after spending ages trying to fix the tactics and such. Battles against stronger foes always ended up with me running around spamming pots and casting spells whilst my party lay dead around me.

    The first time I came face to face with a dragon it wiped my entire party out in a couple of hits. To complete my objective I had to get past the dragon though. Just gave up, rolled a new character and played for a few hours and haven't picked it up again since.

    I feel as if it's my fault though because I know it is a good game and I SHOULD like it but I just find it too hard and tedious to be any real fun for me. Shame on me .

    I think I understand where you are coming from. The game sometimes can get very tedious and long at times. I remember I had the same problem with Mass Effect when I first got it. After two days of playing it I found it too tedious so I put it down. 6 months later I was so bored I decided to play it, after getting past the first couple of missions I could not put it down.

    If you want you can always put God mode on if a particular battle is too hard. I'd lost count how many times I restarted a level or used health potions, I'm sure it reached into the thousands
