    Dragon Age: The Last Court is a text-driven browser game that intends to fill the gap between Dragon Age II and Dragon Age: Inquisition, and is developed by Failbetter Games.

    "In Dragon Age: The Last Court, you are the ruler of Serault: an eccentric fiefdom at the farthest ends of Orlais. As the Huntress or the Scholar you’ll guide your realm through the most crucial period in its history. Will its ancient Shame be forgiven? Or will Serault fall into obscurity?"
    You can read about the game more on Failbetter Games' website.

    The game will be available as part of the Keep. Some fans already have early access to the game, allowing them to take video footage of it. One of the videos can be seen here:

    Wardens, Heroes of Kirkwall and my fellow Inquisitors. I want to extend my thanks to everyone who has contributed to this community - editors, contributors, readers, and those wee ones on the chat who keep me up at night. Over these past 5 years we've seen the audience for this wiki grow and shrink and grow again as games are released. Here we are, a month away from the release of Dragon Age: Inquisition. Wikia and BioWare has graciously allowed Loleil and I to spend some time in San Francisco playing the game. After a day of play testing followed by two days of withdrawal, I am sure that:

    Dragon Age: Inquisition will be the best game in the series.

    So you are about to face the High Dragon located at the mountaintop (The one guarding the Urn of Ashes.) Here are some tips to take it down easily:

    Party Members (Rouge and Mage): Sten: for the tank/Damager of the party Leliana: Use her as an archer she is more effective that way. And also for the party to not get wiped out since the dragon always attacks the melee ones. Wynne: So that your party can survive.

    • Note: Taking Wynne is the most important because you need to have an effective healer in your party.

    Party Members (Warrior - Damager type): Alistair: Since you are already the damager type, you need alistair to taunt the dragon so it only attacks him. (Alistair is the most tanky in the group.) Morrigan: Take Morrigan for your party to d…

    This first trick is very simple, but if you are patient! During the quest "Tainted Blood" Where Duncan asks you to get darkspawn blood. Go get the blood first, once you have them go straight to Duncan (Dont go to Morrigan or else it wont work.). Once your back at camp talk to Duncan and keep spamming the line "We have the blood, but not the scroll.". Do this as many times as you want. (Max Level is 25)

    • Remember when doing this you need to be very patient. ;)
    • This bug does not work on the PS3.(Xbox and PC only :(.)
    • Don't connect to Xbox Live (This will remove the bug)
    • Enjoy :)

    This second one requires you to have 1 point in Trap-making. When you reach Lothering go into the pub where you will find Leliana, there will be soldiers there that you wi…

    Vivienne is confirmed to be the voice at the beginning. It sounds like Solas speaking at the end, and during. It would also appear Solas is the one who leads us to Skyhold.

    Dragon Age: Agents

    Hi all, following my participating in the awesome fan-fic forum 'Lord Cousland's Dinner Party' (check it out if you haven't yet) and reading some other examples of fan fiction from around the Wiki, I have decided to start my own. I probably won't be getting pieces up very quickly, so hopefully if you are enjoying it you can stand waiting for more. To my friends from the afore mentioned forum, I hope you don't mind, but I was planning on setting it in that universe and using some of your characters, if you have suggestions, preferences or concerns let me know. I have christened this story 'Dragon Age: Agents'. It is set during the events of Dragon Age: Inquisition and may be rendered an alternate universe once DA:I actually comes out. For n…

    To promote the upcoming release of Dragon Age: Inquisition, EA have released Dragon Age: Origins for free on Origin- one of two games currently available on their "On the House" deals. It will only be available until the 18th of October, however once the game is downloaded, it is permanently tied to the user's Origin account.

    Sadly it is only the standard edition, and DLC is still priced as usual, but this is a great opportunity for newcomers to the series to try the game out before Inquisition arrives. Those interested can pick up the game here.

    The official Dragon Age website was updated with the following message to promote the recent announcement:

    The archived twitch stream can be found Here. Youtube now has it in two parts. Part 1 and Part 2.

    They mention that a new wave of invites will be coming out, so anyone who signed up but hasn't gotten in will hopefully be getting in soon. Now, a brief summary of what was said, courtesy of Star Metal Knight.

    1. The Varric VO is in 3 languages - English, German and French. Other countries will have subtitles for the time being.

    2. If you play while connected in DAI, all the decisions will move to the Keep. You can change your decisions from DAI in the Keep at a later date.

    The Q&A answers these questions:

    • If I choose not to craft, will I still be able to find unique or powerful weapons and armor?
    • How will the inventory of your backpack be managed in DAI? Will it be determined by number of slots or weight of objects?
    • Will there be schematics to craft weapons and armor?
    • Are craftable weapons comparably strong to looted ones?
    • Can we craft weapons with elemental effects?
    • Can mage staves also be modified?

    Character Creation

    Many have expressed their interest in seeing more of character creation, and BioWare finally delivered a presentation of the character creator. The newest additions seem to be the click & drag feature, free hand at picking colors from a palette instead of default colors, and the ability to change the color of the inner and outer part of the iris. Also, all races are featured, albeit mostly humans - but you can see a male dwarf, a female elf and a female qunari, for which you can see some of the possible horns as well.

We assume the role of what may be described as a judge, jury and executioner, as well as facing the repercussions of our own decisions.

    There are millions of ways to play Bioware's fantastic adventure games. The Protagonist in the upcoming game which is your character is the star of the game and makes all the decisions whether they are good for the story or very bad. My question to you all is WHO IS YOUR INQUISITOR? Is it a dwarven female warrior goody two shoes who will break every bone in her body just so that everyone else can be happy? Is it a roguish elven bastard who would let a village of orphans be slaughtered just so he could gain 100 sovereigns? Or is it a neutral Qunari Sarebaas (mage) who does whatever whenever and at his own pace? So my question to you all for your first playthrough is simple: WHO IS YOUR INQUISITOR?

    Opinions and Ideas

    September 17, 2014 by Twilight Despair 5

    This blog is my ideas on how certain elements of the Dragon Age series, should have been made in MY opinion. Now I will be explaining this both in lore and game format.

    1 Magic: My favorite thing in Dragon Age, as I normally play a Mage. First off, I don't like all the limitations of magic. Cannot revive the dead, or gain eternal youth (immortal status), cannot teleport. I always felt that magic in really any series should have restrictions not limits. Difference is things are restrict meaning, can do something but is preventing it. Where as limits is just built to where something can't happen. With that I think the extreme like travel travel or (completely reviving the dead) to be nearly impossible. As for the origins of Magic itself, my i…

    BioWare continues revealing abilities for each class. This time around it's about warriors again, specifically those who use weapons and shield. The new addition seems to be the Payback Strike. Judging by the description of Shield Bash, let's hope shields will be more effective as weapons than they were in Dragon Age II, just like one could deal a decent damage with a shield in Dragon Age: Origins.

    Cameron Lee, one of BioWare's producers, discusses the function of Skyhold and the extent to which players can customize and interact with it. The castle is enormous, and is the nervecentre of Inquisition operations - whether The Inquisitor is "directing agents through Thedas" or even determining "the fate of nations", this is where they will do it from.

    Customization of the base also promises to be extensive, with the player being able to align Skyhold's appearance and function with the type of Inquisition they are creating. In addition to building major sections of the castle such as courtyards and towers, aesthetic o…
