Getting the Hang of Things in Inquisition

Leave a comment

So let me drag myself away from my PS4 for a second… honestly, I’ve already put in 25 hours and I feel like I haven’t even scratched the surface of Dragon Age: Inquisition. Like you’ve probably already heard, Inquisition is a HUGE world, and because I’m such an obsessive person that I have to explore every inch of every possible map, I’m still in the early parts of the game. At level 9 and haven’t picked up any extra companions or found any of the specializations. And after battling a shit ton of enemies I’m seriously considering respeccing my character before I move on to the next major aspect of the story. Like, why did I think it was a smart idea to move down the storm (electricity) and inferno (fire) ability trees? I need to learn more of the spirit abilities so I can protect myself while trying to disrupt those rifts. And also maybe switch Solas out for more interesting characters if they ever come along. See me in the following video, running around trying to avoid enemies so I can hit the rift without getting interrupted:

Kinda awkward, though I am getting the hang of it. I’m also getting the hang of crafting. So far, crafting weapons is totally worth it, as they’re stronger than the weapons you find out in the field. I’ve made some awesome staffs (staves?) for myself and Solas, and half the fun is in naming them. My strongest electric damage staff is called “High Voltage Rod,” and my electric staff that also heals me on kills is called “Shock and Awe Staff.” Then Solas’ cold damage staff with Barrier Damage bonus is called “Penetrating Cold Staff.” Fun stuff 🙂
