    New patch incoming!

    January 20, 2015 by Loleil

    BioWare has just released their patch notes for the third patch for Dragon Age: Inquisition. The fixes are as follows:


    • Added key binding that allows players to walk.
    • Added mouse cursor scaling.
    • Fixed issue that could result in the mouse getting stuck in mouse-look mode when players alt-tabbed out of the game in full-screen mode.
    • Fixed display bars to correctly reflect items that alter maximum health.

    • Changed party banter system to be less random to prevent extra-long periods where no conversations would occur.
    • Fixed issue that could result in one of Dorian’s conversations not being available for some players.
    • Fixed issue that could result in a cutscene not firing for Dorian’s plot when players enter the Gull and Lantern.
    • Fixed issue that could res…

    Hello everyone!



    We are so excited to have the opportunity to bring you a Q&A with the voice of The Inquisitor - Alix Wilton Regan. Along with her work on Inquisition, Alix has also performed voice-overs in Dragon Age: Origins and Awakening.

She is an award winning actress, starring in Television, Theater and several Feature Films including The Wolfman and Real Playing Game.


    We are currently gathering questions from the wikia community to present to her. You can ask her about her work on the games, her background in voice acting or anything else related to those areas. Please use the comment section below and have your que…

    A new skill calculator / build planner is now available for use over at RPG-Gaming courtesy of a reddit user Koth12


    The calculator features the ability to select any of the 3 main classes in game and features all 21 skill trees complete with descriptions of each of the available skills.

    Planning your character is as simple as clicking on each of the relevant skills in a given tree. The interface has been designed to mimic the in game skill trees as closely as possible. Allocating skills will show the total number of skill points allocated so that you can match this to the desired number of skill points to be spent in game. The calculator will also show the 8 available active skills beneath the allocated skill point total in a similar positio…

    Tiran - The White Wolf

    January 4, 2015 by MummaCandy

    Tiran, The White Wolf, Herald of Andraste, Lord Inquisitor, Slayer of Dragons, Nemesis of Corypheus and Chosen one of The Maker.

    Many are the titles that follow Tiran, aka The White Wolf, the name of my first Dragon Age Inquisition character. As you (or some of you at least) can probably guess from the name, Tiran is slightly inspired from The Witcher's main protagonist, Geralt. Most of the inspiration can be seen in Tiran’s physical appearance; he has neck long white hair, purple eyes (because The Targaryens are awesome), a solid jawline, manly features and somewhat rough skin.

    Class: dual dagger rogue - Killing is awesome. killing fast and with an ice cold attitude is even awesomer (made myself a word)... its a win win.

    On my 1st Play thru I found a Wooden Platform laying on the Ground on Top of a Sand Dune in the Southeast Corner of the Map. When I did a Search I could see a Chest and a Ladder to Climb Out. I must have spent 2 hours running around trying to find the Tunnel that led into this spot. In my Frustration I hit the Jump Key by accident. I saw the Platform Wiggle, so I kept Jumping. After the 4th Jump I fell into the Pit. Inside the Chest is 200gp or so and a Unique Greatsword called Verdict. It is a Level 11 Item and you need to be Level 8 to wield it. It is DPS 181 and as a Level 8 Warrior it Kicks Ass.

    What does "Qunari" mean?

    December 28, 2014 by Ralok

    There has been some argument about what "Qunari" actually are, rather specifically what the word means. Qunari is sometimes used to refer to all people who follow the philosophies of the Qun, but it is typically used to refer specifically to the Ox-men, those with the metallic skin tones, huge size, and horns.

    There are also special terms to refer to the culture that predates the Qun, and for converts to the Qun. Its been commented that the Kossith, the culture that predates the Qun, may have had people that hardly resembles the modern Qunari as well.

    I think I have it worked out, it has been said in a few sources that the Qunari practice a form of Eugenics and/or selective breeding for the traits they desire.

    The term "Qunari" seems to speci…

    As 90% of those reading this are likely to know, Dragon Age: Inquisition represents each party member with a tarot card, along with other things. You are also likely to know that these change depending on choices, story progress, etc., and are full of symbolism up the wahoo.

    But what does the symbolism mean? Or, in this case, "What the fuck is up with that snake?" These are questions we hope to answer in... oh, look, the title's up there already, guess this intro was needless.

    Sadly, you may consider this examination not too in-depth. You are always welcome to probe further of course. Engage that southerner mind. Either way, I'm sure, prepare yourself for a rollercoaster of a ride. Mini-essay away.

    Felassan's name

    December 4, 2014 by StillAlive

    I read The Masked Empire, and I know where his name comes from and everything, but I also know that the word for slow is "felas" and arrow is "assan". Why isn't his name "Felasassan", then? I realize that this would obviously sound more ridiculous, but wouldn't that be correct? Or is it just a diminutive, like how the name "Julian" means "youth" because it is derived from the Latin "juvenis", meaning youth? So that it sounds similar and therefore has the same meaning even though it's not exactly the same. I'm probably reading too much into this and you all probably have no idea what the answer is, but what the hell, why not ask anyway? StillAlive (talk) 03:01, December 4, 2014 (UTC)

    This is where I discuss what paths the series might have had if the developers thought of it. Here, let's discuss possible ideas for extended content. Anders is something of a can of worms, so it's probably best we don't discuss him. However, I am thinking of recruiting the Dwarf bombardier from Awakening to better up the Chargers odds in the Iron Bull's mission for his people. That way we can keep the Chargers, the Qunari alliance, and improve Bull's standing. Don't know what to think of anything else right now aside from that. Ideas, please? And speak positively and politely.

    After an exchange with an associate from the Mass Effect Wiki, I've been told of visiting Cassandra Pentaghast's homeland, some places in Ferelden we haven't been to…

    "The wait is nearly over..."

    Those who have pre-ordered their games in North America have the chance to play it this Monday night. Tomorrow it will be officially released to everyone in North America the first time, and a few days later in the rest of the world. Accordingly to that, BioWare released their launch trailer, A Wonderful World.


    Update: There's a promotional game on the official website, with which you can earn promotional items in Dragon Age: Inquisition. The goal is to unveil Vivienne, Iron Bull, Varric and in the end, the Inquisitor. You have to spot three veil mists in their respective videos, which will give you some additional information of the game, such as tidbits of the Orlesian tradition of masks, the Venatori, Bianca, and…

    I owned an Xbox One, so that means I have the option to buy a monthly payment of EA Access, granting me access to a trial of Dragon Age: Inquisition. Lucky me! So I started a broadcast of it on Twitch, with my older brother watching me play. And to top it off, I decided to play it on the highest difficulty: Nightmare. Unfortunately, I forgot to make sure that my channel store it for later, so I can't share it with you. Thankfully, I have a good enough memory to describe the gist of it, so onward to glory!
