I understand that promotional DLC (Like memory band) is available for manual install for the PC and the playstation (You need to search "Dragon age" in the store in order to see them on the playstation) so i was wandering if their is a way for an xbox player to download memory band (And the other DLC's) ? because so far i have been unable to find any of them. —Preceding unsigned comment added by Shaerala (talk • contribs) 17:18, July 10, 2012
- I don't believe there is unfortunately. I wouldn't worry about it though, the ring's more or less useless IMHO. 16:37, July 10, 2012 (UTC)
Yeah, to be honest, most of the promotional items are really only good until Lothering. After which point you'll come across better items, even in the vanilla game. That said, the rewards in the DLCs are worth going for, particular the Reaper's Cudgel (simply because you can sell it for a daft amount fairly early). --Madasamadthing (talk) 17:21, July 10, 2012 (UTC)
- The promotionals appear to require codes, it seems. You may have to link your bioware profile with your xbox profile, then manually activate them on the website. (As I'm not a consoler, I have no idea.)
- There are some worthy items, however. I did enjoy Final Reason until I got the Staff of Magister Lords. - 17:30, July 10, 2012 (UTC)
Thats funny, because a lot of those promotional items were on the PSN back in 2010. But if you really want to discuss this, we could look at the items and to discuss whether or not each item is worth it in the long run. (Just for the purpose of this, I'm going to avoid the DLC campaigns and the add-ons)
- Blood Dragon Armour - Decent addition to armour, health and defense. Good for a secondary character maybe, but still good enough to last the whole game.
- The Lucky Stone - +1 to all attributes, yeah, good for the first stages of the game, but probably better relegated to a secondary character.
- Grimoire of the Frozen Wastes - Like all the promotional tomes, its a good item and good for building the base of your Warden.
- Bergen's Honor - Its good if you want a resiliant character who doesn't get knocked down (which otherwise can be annoying if you keep getting swarmed)
- Final Reason - A good bonus for any mage, but it reaches its full potential for Fire mages.
- Embri's Many Pockets - the resistance provides somewhat negligible protection, it really needs to stacks with other items and to be honest, there are other items that individually provide far better protection than that belt.
- Amulet of the War Mage - Same problem with the above, lots of little bonuses, but a little too spread out.
- Helm of the Deep - Good tanking helm until about mid-game, but there are other, kinda better helmets.
- Mark of Vigilance - Good for mages or templar specced characters. Other than that, its not the most effective of items.
- Memory Band - On paper 1% extra experience sounds great. In reality you're getting 12xp or 16xp 95% of the time, its nothing. Sell it, you'll get nothing for it, but just sell, its taking up space.
- Lion's Paw - Good for rogues. And it can last a big chunk of the game.
- Feral Wolf Charm - Something of a mixed bag. Ultimately it's great for the beginning of the game, but you can find better.
- The Wicked Oath - You know what? I would use this for the entire game for a Warrior or a Rogue, one of the best items.
- Band of Fire - Good for fighting High Dragons, the Archdemon and any fire mage heavy areas.
- Dalish Promise Ring - Its junk. The main selling point is the healing bonus, which would be great, except for the bug that means that the bonus never works.
- Guildmaster's Belt - Good for Rogues. That's all I can really say.
- The Edge - Great for rogues, good for dual wielding warriors. The rune slots means you can just it to your preferred elemental damage.
- Bulwark of the True King - Good tanking shield, mid to high tier shield.
- Pearl of the Anointed - +1 to all attributes, but it's really an early stage item.
- Bregan's Bow - Good for rogues, or if you want to just dump it on Leliana, it works well enough.
