Dragon Age 2 Walkthrough

Building on the story of Dragon Age: Origins, but not exactly picking up where it left off, Bioware’s 2011 fantasy epic, Dragon Age 2, will center around a place called Kirkwall. The burg is beset by many of the omnipresent problems of the company’s proprietary fantasy universe: skullduggerous nobles, Templar vs. Mage conflicts, and, last but not least, the Blight.

Though players will not have the opportunity to select their race, they do have control of gender and class, and the choices don’t end there. As in every Bioware game, the player is given a huge amount of discretion over how the story plays out, discretion that can often be a little bit overwhelming or confusing. Regardless of its effect, we’re preparing a full text and video walkthrough to guide you through every aspect of the game. We’ve also got lists of Trophies and Achievements, as well as a Cheats page, which collects all sorts of useful Dragon Age 2 information.

Note: This playthrough was conducted with the male warrior. Different gender/class combinations may yield different gameplay experiences.

Prologue

A Dwarf’s Tale

  1. After an introductory cinematic, you’re thrown into a combat tutorial. Defeat the waves of enemies while learning your various abilities, present on the hotbar.
  2. You will not need to venture away from this area; the enemies will come to you.
  3. Right-click on enemies to attack them. For hotbar abilities, either click the hotbar or press the corresponding hotkey number. Some powers require you to left-click on a target to attack it. If you’re already engaging the target, it will auto-attack.
  4. Press R to engage the closest enemy.
  5. Use area of effect attacks when dealing with groups of enemies, and use stunning and heavy-hitting attacks on single enemies, like the giant ogre.
  6. If needed, press the spacebar to pause the game, select the power you’d like to use, and select a target. This can compensate for slower reflexes/decision making and save your life in future battles.
  7. When the ogre enters battle, he will charge. Side-step to avoid being knocked prone.

The Destruction of Lothering

  1. The game opens with an interactive cutscene that offers you conversation paths.
  2. Once the cutscene ends, loot the dead refugee a few feet ahead. If you are a warrior, you may switch from your two-handed sword to a sword and shield.
  3. Move down the path, following the minimap in the top-right corner westward.
  4. Fight the gang of Hurlocks ahead. More will come at you from behind. During battle, you may switch between your character, the mage, and the warrior, to use their abilities.
  5. After your first battle, your main character will level up. Distribute attribute points as you see fit; in general, a warrior will want strength and constitution, a mage will want magic and willpower, and a rogue will want dexterity and cunning. Select whatever ability fits your play style. Alternatively, use the “auto-level” feature to let the game make the recommended choices for you.
  6. Loot all bodies you come across.
  7. Continue west. After another cutscene, there will immediately be battle ahead.
  8. This battle will lead into another cutscene, where two warriors will join your party. The male is wounded and will not help in battle.
  9. As the cutscene ends, you will enter combat once more. After this battle, some of your characters will level up.
  10. Another interactive cutscene will start, in which the wounded man threatens your character’s sister. If you defend her in the conversation option, you’ll gain 15 friendship points with her. Different conversation paths in this and future conversations will yield different friendship/rivalry results with your party members.
  11. Continue along the path, south-east, until you run into the next fight. During the fight, enemies will approach from behind.
  12. Continue south-east, into the next group of enemies. There will be a pair of archers on a ledge; you’ll need to move beyond them, make a U-turn to the left and double back to reach them.
  13. Continue down the path. Around the bend, a tough battle awaits, including an enemy mage. Drink potions when you need them, and protect your mage. The enemy mage is a priority target: it deals high damage, but has low health.
  14. Explore the alcove to the south-west. Loot the chest if you are a rogue. Locate and read the book near a corpse.
  15. A cutscene will lead into another battle. You’ll be rapidly overrun, but don’t worry–a titular dragon is about to save you.
  16. A final interactive cutscene will take you to Kirkwall.
  17. Walk towards the guards blocking access to Kirkwall, marked with an X on your minimap.
  18. In a cutscene, the guard will direct you to Captain Ewald, who will now show up on your map.
  19. Walk through the guards and up the stairs, then head West until you reach the portcullis.
  20. Move North and approach Captain Ewald. Once you mention your uncle during the cutscene, the riffraff will think you’re being let in before them and a battle will commence. Help Captain Ewald defeat the dozen traitors.
  21. Having gained the Captain’s favor, Ewald will find your uncle. As you speak with your uncle in a cutscene, you learn he can’t get you in–not directly, at least. You’ll have to spend a year working off a debt to either a smuggler or a mercenary.
  22. After the cutscene, go speak with the two contacts, marked on the map. One is to the North, the other to the South. Listen to both of them before deciding who you’d like to work for; you can only work for one, not both, so choose wisely.
  23. In this text playthrough, the mercenary, Meeran, was selected. The video walkthrough covers the smuggler option. Depending on your conversation paths in the smuggler option, you can complete this mission without combat, or you can ask for a bribe and fail the mission. This would allow you to gain money from the smuggle option and still complete the mercenary mission.
  24. You must prove yourself to Meeran by killing Lord Friedrich and his men. To find him, heat West, then South.
  25. Engaging Meeran in combat will earn you 5 rivalry points from Aveline. During the fight, you’ll face a second wave of attackers–remember to protect your mage; you may not see these reinforcements coming.
  26. With Friedrich dead, return to Meeran. He’ll welcome you into the Red Iron.
  27. Speak with Gamlen, immediately to your North-West.

    Companion Plot: The Way It Should Be

    13. Return to the Viscount’s Keep. Climb the stairs, then head South and enter the door marked on the minimap.

When the dragon is focusing its attacks on one party member, such as Aveline, select her and run circles around the area. Keep this up as long as the dragon follows.
    18. With the dragon dead and the area looted, exit. You will have picked up a Dragon Fang from the dragon’s corpse for a future quest. Return to the Hightown market and speak with Hubert.

    12. Once you exit, you’ll enter a conversation. If you fail to convince Ser Kerass that you killed the mages, he’ll order his men to attack you. Every other conversation option leads to Ser Kerras attacking you anyway, so you may as well try to convince him.

    Main Plot: Shepherding Wolves

    1. Travel to southern Lowtown (Night) and approach the Shady Character. Fight.
    2. After a suspicious conversation, head to Petrice’s Safehouse in northern Lowtown.
    3. If you accept the quest, head through the trapdoor to your East into the Undercity Warrens.

    5. Climb the steps and head North, into another spider trap.
    6. Continue North and fight some–you guessed it–spiders.
    7. Keep going North, then East. You’ll need to climb another flight of stairs–a trap at the foot of the staircase spawns a cloud of poison. And at the top of the staircase, you get to fight a poisonous spider. At least you get to loot a chest.
    8. Continue East. In case you hadn’t noticed, Bethany points out that Ketojan hasn’t been helping.
    9. Advance towards the thugs. During the conversation, Ketojan finally makes himself useful. I guess he was waiting for a dramatic moment.

    11. Continue up the steps and loot the prettier looking chest, then exit through the South to the Mountain Pass.
    12. A confusing conversation will ensue, with many made-up words. If you mention Bethany was a mage, you will be attacked. If you reply with the red X, you’ll gain 5 friendship points with Aveline, and you will be attacked. If you reply with the checkmark, Ketojan will offer some touching last words, then he will be promptly executed. And you will be attacked.
    13. If Ketojan is alive after the battle, he’ll want to die. If you reply with a checkmark, he’ll give you his talisman.
    14. Exit the area, South-West, and make for Lowtown (Night).
    15. Return to Petrice’s Safehouse in northern Lowtown.

    Main Plot: The Deep Roads Expedition

    1. There are two requirements to starting this quest: you must have amassed at least 50 gold coins, and you must have completed the Tranquility quest. If you have completed every quest you could, sold all junk items you’ve looted, and not made any big purchases, you should have roughly 90 gold coins.
    2. Ensure Varric is in your current party, then travel to north-eastern Hightown and speak with Bartrand. Get the expedition started.
    3. Speak to Bartrand again. You’ll need to decide who to take with you on the expedition, which will amount to a longer-than-usual quest. You must take Varric, which leaves two spots.
    4. SPOILER ALERT: (Yeah, this whole walkthrough is a spoiler, but this is a big one.) If you take Bethany/Carver, they get infected during the expedition and will die, unless you brought Anders, in which case you can choose to turn them into Grey Wardens. If you leave your sibling with your mother, they’ll be forced into/willing join the Circle/Templars. Whatever the case, you won’t have them around for a while, so make sure you take your items out of their inventory before you lose them. In this playthrough, Bethany stayed with mother.
    5. You’ll be asked to find someone’s son, Sandal. If you agree, you’ll gain 5 friendship points with Varric and Aveline.
    6. Travel East, then North, then East again into a battle with Hurlocks.
    7. Continue South, then East, then North down the steps and into another battle with Hurlocks.
    8. Loot the locked chest in the corner to the West. Your rogue needs 20 Cunning to unlock the chests in this area–if your rogue doesn’t have 20 Cunning yet, make it so at your next level-up and double back to loot the chest.
    9. Continue North, then East through a door into battle.
    10. Head South into the excavation pit to loot Silverite, two chests and one locked chest.
    11. Climb the steps to the East toward the closed door. A spider ambush will drop from the ceiling, along with the biggest spider you’ve seen yet. If you run up the steps, the monstrous spider can’t follow you.
    12. With combat over, head up the steps to the East, through the door, and loot the chest.
    13. Exit the pit by climbing the stairs and continuing East, then North around a corner into another Hurlock battle.
    14. Grab the mushroom and continue North into a conversation.
    15. Grab the raw lyrium, then head East.
    16. Turn North down the passage lined with ominous stone figures that definitely won’t ever spring to life and attack you.
    17. Continue North and fight the Hurlocks.
    18. Turn West, down the steps and into another Hurlock battle. Grab the Raw Lyrium in the South-East corner of this chamber.
    19. Loot the chest at the foot of the dwarf statue to the West, then climb the steps up to the door.
    20. Fight the ogre in the next room.
    21. Proceed through the western door, mindful of the bear traps.
    22. Turn South, then West, then North. Loot the chest.
    23. Continue North, then turn West. A Dragon will swoop down from the ceiling in the cavernous chamber beyond. Dragonlings will join the battle. This will likely be your most difficult battle yet (and there’s an even tougher one coming up). Watch for when the dragon is about to breathe fire, then move out of the way. Pull wounded party members back from the battle and kite the dragon as much as possible.
    24. Head West to the Primeval Thaig to end this segment of the expedition.
    25. Travel North, then East into a conversation.
    26. Continue East into a battle with Shades. And then, in a completely unpredictable turn of events, a Stone Golem will come to life and attack.
    27. Loot the chest, then the Orichalcum to the East.
    28. Descend the steps, North-East, and enter the Primeval Thaig (again?)
    29. Travel South, through the doorway, up the steps, and into a cutscene. Bartrand will lock you in. Don’t you love that guy?
    30. Travel South, through the door, then turn East and open the door to a room filled with Shades and another Stone Golem. Try holding a choke point at the doorway. It’ll be a tough battle, as the golem summons more waves of Shades, but you get to reap the reward of four chests.
    31. Continue South into a cavernous chamber and fight Shades. Profanes will spawn at the chamber’s exit, South.
    32. Continue South out of the chamber, then turn East into battle with Shades and Profanes.
    33. Travel East down the corridor, through the door and into battle with Shades and Profanes. A conversation will begin after the battle. If you agree to work with the hunger demon, you’ll gain 5 rivalry points with Aveline. If you refuse, you’ll gain 10 rivalry points with Merrill and 5 friendship points with Aveline. If you ask Merrill to kill it, she will fail, but you won’t gain friendship or rivalry points. If you choose “We kill it,” you get the same outcome.
    34. In this playthrough, the hunger demon was killed. After looting the chest, continue East up the steps and through the door into another battle.
    35. Continue East, up the steps and into the final boss fight of the expedition. This will be the most difficult battle you’ve faced yet. When the Rock Wraith collapses into a hovering ball that crackles with energy, get behind a pillar to avoid the ensuing blast of energy.
    36. With the battle over, loot the four chests to get the Crypt Key, then return to the surface to end Act I.

    Act II

    This Act begins with a conversation with the Viscount, wherein he will offer you a quest.

    In this playthrough, the following quests were available at the start of Act II, after accepting the Viscount’s mission:

      Main:

    • Demands of the Qunari
    • Blackpowder Courtesy
    •  
      Companions:

    • Plans for the Future
    • Visit Anders
    • Calling on the Captain
    • Speak to Fenris
    • Isabela’s Ongoing Search
    • Questioning Beliefs
    • Consoling Words

     
    Speak with Saemus on your way out of the Keep–he’ll be by the stairs–to follow up on The Unbidden Rescue quest. As you exit the Keep, Bodahn will run up to you with 50 gold coins and word about your fancy mansion, giving you the Finding Home quest.

    Main Plot: Finding Home

    • Travel to the Hawke Esate in eastern Hightown. Admire your mansion. Aveline will visit, and you’ll greet her in your… bathrobe? She’ll give you the Prime Suspect quest.

    Companion Plot: Consoling Words

    • Speak with Merrill at her house in north-eastern Hightown.

    Companion Plot: Speak to Fenris

    • Speak to Fenris at his Hightown mansion. You’ll be offered a love option. If you reply with “You’re my friend,” you’ll gain 10 friendship points with Fenris… which isn’t the usual reaction you get in real life when you spurn someone into the “friend zone.”

    Companion Plot: Visit Anders

    • Speak with Anders at his clinic in Darktown, accessible from the World Map. You’ll be offered a love option. If you mainly stick with the green leaf conversation paths, you’ll gain 5 friendship points with Anders.

    Companion Plot: Plans for the Future

    • Talk to Varric in the Hanged Man pub. If you reply with, “What would I do without you?” you’ll gain 10 friendship points with Varric. Fortunately, there is no love option here.

    Companion Plot: Calling on the Captain

    • Speak with Aveline at the barracks in the Viscount’s Keep. She’ll blame you for her problems, but it’s just friendly ribbing–reply with “You love it” to gain 10 friendship points with Aveline.

    Companion Plot: Isabela’s Ongoing Search

    • Speak with Isabela in the Hanged Man pub. You’ll be offered a love option, which will grant you 25 friendship points with Isabela. Any other option awards 5 friendship points. Speak with her again to complete the Questioning Beliefs quest.

    Companion Plot: Questioning Beliefs

    • You must first complete the “Isabela’s Ongoing Search” quest before you can complete this one. Speak with Isabela in the Hanged Man pub. You’ll be offered another love option. If you select it, you will continue the romance the next time you return to your mansion.

    Secondary Plot: Night Terrors

    1. You receive this quest in the form of a letter from Arianni to your writing desk. Speak with Arianni in north-eastern Lowtown.
    2. When presented with the conversation options “I understand” and “I can’t do that,” with regards to making the son Tranquil, you’ll gain 10 rivalry points with Merrill if you reply with “I understand” and 5 friendship points with the second option.
    3. After a conversation that explains you are about to enter a dream world, you are prompted to select which companions to bring along. Select Neo, Morpheus, and Trinity–wait, wrong dream world. In this playthrough, Aveline, Isabela, and Anders were selected. Anders will be controlled by his demon/spirit Justice–which isn’t a bad thing.
    4. In this trippy dream world, you’ll immediately spot an ethereal book floating around to your West. Reading it will be tricky, because it only remains in one spot for a half second, but you’ll gain an attribute point once you succeed. Stand in a spot that the book returns to in its loop, pause the game as it reaches you, give the command to read it, then un-pause. You’ll need to select it twice; once to get it to lie down, and once to read it.
    5. Proceed East, through a door, and face the barrels to your North. If you rearrange the barrels properly in a certain number of attempts, you’ll gain an attribute point. If you fail, you’ll summon shades. The objective is to arrange the large barrels on the bottom row and the small barrels in the top row. To accomplish this, select the barrels in the following order, with letters A and B representing the top and bottom rows, respectively, and numbers 1 through 4 representing the columns, from left to right.

      A3
      A2
      A1
      B1
      B2
      B3
      A3
      A2
      B2

      A3
      A2
      A1
      B1
      B2
      B3
      B4
      A4

    6. Head South, through the door, then open the door to your North-East. This room contains another puzzle that will earn you an attribute point. The objective is to stack the red barrels into a two-by-two square. To accomplish this, select the barrels in the following order, with letters A and B representing the top and bottom rows, respectively, and numbers 1 through 6 representing the columns, from left to right.

      A2
      B2
      B1
      A1
      A2
      A3
      B3

      B5
      B6
      A6
      A5
      A4
      B4
      B5

    7. Exit the room and open the door to your West. Go through the door and into a cutscene.
    8. If you make a deal with the sloth demon, he’ll reward you with 6 attribute points at the end of this quest, but you will gain 15 rivalry points with Anders and have to fight. Don’t worry–unlike the Matrix, if you die in the Fade, you don’t die in real life. At least, your companions don’t.

    8. Two traps on the steps block access to the second level. Head up the steps after disarming the traps, then continue East down the long hall and through the door.
    9. Defeat the Qunari Honor Guard.
    10. Depending on how you’ve treated Isabela in the past, she may waltz in with the tome. The Arishok wants to take her back to his land of Qunari for what can only be a grizzly end, so in this playthrough, Hawke replied, “You can’t have her.”
    11. The Arishok will challenge you to a duel to the death. The winner gets Isabela. And the feminist movement is set back another century.
    12. If you accept the duel, you’ll gain 10 friendship points with Varric.
    13. Dueling the Arishok results in a difficult battle. Avoid him when he charges up his powerful attacks–you’ll learn to recognize the sounds and animations he makes before attacking. Run figure-eights around the two pillars while you wait for your potions and powers to cool down.
    14. Try to use stun powers as much as possible; stun him, then attack, then run away just as the stun ends. Wait for your powers to recharge, rinse and repeat. Roughly 7 healing potions and 7 stamina potions were used in this battle, but the Arishok was defeated without needing to load a previous save and try again, so this duel is entirely possible to win.

    1. Travel to Gamlen’s house in the heart of Lowtown.
    2. Read the note on his table to acquire the quest, Gamlen’s Greatest Treasure.

    2. You will fight a high dragon here; many claim this to be the most difficult battle in the game. You may want to take Varric instead of Isabela; Isabela doesn’t have the health to survive in melee with the dragon.
    3. The battle has three “intermissions” during which you fight dragonlings and a “regular” dragon while the high dragon lays back on a roost and lobs fireballs at you. These occur when the high dragon is at 75%, 50%, and 25% health, and they allow you the opportunity to replenish your stamina reserves and stock up on the potions you can loot from the dragonlings.
    4. During these intermissions, the high dragon’s fireballs will lock on and follow a character. Move the targeted character away from your other characters to avoid splash damage.

    4. Enter the mountain cave.
    5. Descend the steps and head South-West. Follow the passage all the way to its dead-end, where you can try your hand at a complex chest. Retrace your steps and descend the steps heading North-East, into–you guessed it–a spider ambush.
    6. Loot the bones to get an armor upgrade for Isabela, then head North.
    7. As you descend the steps, some harsh traps await. You’ll see three white squares in a row, with corpses beyond. Stepping on the squares triggers a fire trap, while a hidden trap beyond activates floor spikes that will cause Injuries. Order your party to hold position, then move one character at a time, skirting along the wall to the left to the safety of the next set of steps.
    8. Head into the North-East nook to loot the sylvanwood ring off the bones (again?)
    9. Keep following the path, working your way northward, until you arrive within a large cavern with a pile of treasure at the end. Looks too good to be true? Yeah.
    10. That’s right, another Varterral. Because you didn’t get enough of the first one. Kill it; avoid standing near the tail and the head, where it deals the most damage. When it starts stamping the ground, watch out for falling rocks.
    11. With the battle over, you’ll meet the man you’re here to capture. In this playthrough, Hawke let him go.
    12. After looting the area, exit North-East.

    9. With all five collected, exit the area, South.
    10. Return to Anders’ clinic. He will ask for your help with something suspicious; denying him will award you 30 rivalry points with him.

    2. Depending on whether you side with Meredith or Orsino, as well as the friendship/rivalry levels of your companions, some of your friends may support you while others may not. In this playthrough, Hawke sided with the mages, and everyone but Fenris supported him.
    3. You must then decide whether or not to take Anders with you. You can also execute him for blowing up a kind old lady.
    4. That done, you must select your party. Don’t worry — your other companions will join you later.
    5. Battle your way to the Docks, East.
    6. Head to the Gallows, North. You’ll fight a blood mage, Pride Demon, and shades.
    7. In the next cutscene, you can convince Fenris to return to your team. Just play the slave card.

    11. Once battle is over, exit to Templar Hall, South.
    12. As you advance, shades will spawn.
    13. After battle, head through the eastern door. Sandal will be there with all your stuff. Somehow. Also, he sells things now. This is your last chance to stock up on anything before the final showdown.
    14. Exit through the southern door, then the eastern one. The second door to the North is a room filled with fire traps and a rage demon, and the corpse loot isn’t great, so you can just skip it.
    15. You’ll fight templars, blood mages, and a seduction demon in this next room.
    16. Exit the room and take the southern door into another battle.
    17. Exit, West, and descend the steps, South, into battle.
    18. West, up the steps, lies a trap-laden corridor filled with abominations, skeleton archers, and an arcane horror. It’s a tough battle, and unnecessary, but there is loot.
    19. In the westernmost room await two pride demons. There are two corpses with decent loot in this room; you can kite the demons to this room’s exit and let ranged characters kill them — the demons cannot fit through the doorway. After one demon dies, shades will spawn, but the second demon will likely be blocking the path for the shades.
    20. Exit to the gallows, South.
    21. You finally get to face Meredith. Once she is down to 75% health, she animates a huge statue to fight for her.
    22. At 50% health, she animates a second huge statue, as well as the smaller (but still giant) slave statues that hang from the walls.
    23. While you’re still fighting the smaller statues, she will rejoin the battle and continue to summon the statues.
    24. When Meredith is down to 25% health, the huge statues will partially reanimate (just their torsos).
    25. When the battle ends, enjoy the epilogue.

To Tyler: “so, i’ve done all this quests, i cant find any new one, so thats it? i finished the game? i hope not….”

I think that is just Act I of the game. It does span 10 years so at a certain point I think you may have to initiate a cutscene but it won’t be easy to find to prevent players from accidentally initiating it without intending. idk

dylan

On March 9, 2011 at 9:22 am

some1 please help ive given 50 sovereign and ive helped anders and the guy said patch things up ive talked to all my party members i got isabella i even helped her friend but wen i go 2 talk to him he says the same thing how do i activate the deep roads quest

chris

On March 9, 2011 at 9:57 am

You have to return to your house, read the letters and complete the quests given. At least thats what worked for me.

where do i find a dragon i need a dragon scale??

Matt

On March 9, 2011 at 11:21 am

I think I found the dragon scale when I killed the dragon in the Bone Pit mission.

Hint, guys. When you save a Dreamer, remember this. Save beforehand, and follow this rule.

Little ones on top before a fight, to get level up points.
Red Square before a fight, to repeat.
Book is Hunted, to repeat another.

Cheers ^^

Hey guys, just wanted to pop in to say that we’ll eventually be able to answer all of your questions as we work through the game.

Stay tuned!

On March 10, 2011 at 2:08 am

Dragon Scale comes from doing all the side quests for the Bone Pit, Hawkes armor doesnt come into play until very late in the game.

This is driving me nuts: during the skirmish between Captain Ewald (sp?) and the deserters outside the city gates, Captain Ewald appears to repeatedly cast an AoE spell and also throws down his sword and fires off some other spell-looking thing. If I didn’t know better, he looks like a really-well animated Arcane Warrior. (I know this can’t be the case). What are those skills? Can I get them? I can’t be the only one that noticed this.

bgroxs

On March 10, 2011 at 1:59 pm

well im starting the deep road exp. n i want to know that should hawk bring his sis or not?

bgroxs

rply soon ccause im not playin….lloollzzz….n i think this game is short compare to DAo.well i hope not.

Rhaff

On March 10, 2011 at 2:40 pm

To bgroxs: If you dont bring the one of the twins (brother if you are mage, sister if your are warrior/rogue) you will loose them until later in the game. If you bring them, they get tainted and will be gone until the final act.

In the quest Fools Rush In it will not let me enter the chantry…Anyone know why?

Jacob

On March 10, 2011 at 4:57 pm

Raual, I had the same issue and skipped the rest of that quest… I was guessing it was a glitch.

CJ Miozzi

On March 10, 2011 at 5:38 pm

@Raual, Jacob: Did you folks follow the steps in the walkthrough? Did you maybe get ahead of Isabella? Did you not kill everyone you were supposed to kill?

I could just be a bug, but let’s be sure.

d3ToX

On March 10, 2011 at 7:51 pm

How do you upgrade your party’s armor? It keeps saying restriction to hawk.

Patrick

On March 10, 2011 at 8:03 pm

I had the same problem with the fools rush in quest. Think its cuz I ran ahead without Isabella…does this mean I am unable to have her as a companion?

CJ Miozzi

On March 10, 2011 at 8:22 pm

@Patrick Can you try to do the Fools Rush In quest again? How did you exit the quest? That is the quest that allows you to add her to the party.

Rhaff

On March 10, 2011 at 10:14 pm

For those of you who can’t complete fools rush in, it might be because you havent killed everyon you’re supposed to.

Geodelik

On March 11, 2011 at 5:06 am

Can someone explain to me where is the Shallowguard warehouse? I went there for the quest “Night Lies” but it was so difficult to win the battle, so i got out from the warehouse to get back later but now I cant find that warehouse and there is no marker for that quest!
Thanks

Raual

On March 11, 2011 at 12:53 pm

Im pretty sure i killed everyone because isabela walked to the chantry door like she was ready to go in…and i walked back and checked about 3 times but nothing happened

Rhaff

On March 11, 2011 at 12:56 pm

@ Raual well then i dont know.. reload to an earlier save and try again?

CJ Miozzi

On March 11, 2011 at 10:00 pm

@Raual Really dumb question, but… did you click on the Chantry door? Isabela only walks up to it; you have to open it yourself. You probably did, but I just want to be 100% sure.

Patrick

On March 11, 2011 at 10:52 pm

I killed everyone and she is waiting at the door but I am unable to enter. The quest is still active but I’ve moved on. Call it a glitch I guess.

Zack

On March 12, 2011 at 1:00 am

To get the dragon scale/fang for the herbalist complete the mission given to you by a merchant in hightown where he asks you to save his miners, to beat this mission you slay a mature dragon. Also if you go back to sundermount after your deep roads expedition and climb to the top of the mountain you can slay another one not to mention get into some pretty good fights on the way up for a little extra experience.

Zack

On March 12, 2011 at 1:08 am

the glitch in “fools rush in” is really obnoxious but easy to fix. After you kill the first wave of guys (the one led by the woman who calls isabella a wench), wait for isabella to tell you to check the bodies before you take the note off the leader, you’ll know it works when isabella gets a “plot point” icon above her head and begins to lead you to the chantry. If you want her on your team you will have to do this mission, i think its worth it i like having a couple of rouges to choose from, and she has some pretty funny conversations with the rest of your team as your exploring.

Steven

On March 13, 2011 at 8:44 pm

@dylan: When you talk to the Dwarf to start the Deep Roads expedition, they will hint to you who you need to finish up work with before proceeding. You may finish up one, go to him, and one of your party members will tell you another one you need to wrap up with. Eventually once you have all your business wrapped up that needs to be done when you view the city map you will see the quest indicator in the city map when you try to travel. If you don’t see it on your map, then it’s not time for you to talk to him yet and you still need to wrap up some business. I also believe the quest will update and it will tell you to go talk to the Dwarf in the quest information when you are ready to move on.

I recommend just knocking out side quests until the Deep Roads Expedition quest activated for me. That’s what I did and a lot of them are actually really great with a good back story, excellent cut scenes and decent rewards. I didn’t do them all though, to save some unseen content for subsequent playthroughs, but I did enough to activate it for me.

just wondering why i cant open any doors in the migistrates orders secondary mission, i have completed the fight in the large chamber with a central brazier, but cant open the doors to get to lia?

CJ Miozzi

On March 14, 2011 at 7:27 am

@brandonicus Did you follow the steps in the walkthrough? From the room with the brazier, did you head South, then East, then North into the final cutscene? Lia is not in the room to the East; she is in the southern corridor.

@GexOgen: Thanks!

@Scream: Did you leave for the Deep Roads Expedition?

@toriankel: The walkthrough will be completed as soon as possible–sorry, I can’t be more specific. I’m going through all the side-quests I possibly can for the sake of completeness, and writing everything down along the way, so I can’t get through it as quickly as someone just playing for fun. Stay tuned!

I have completed all quest, the main plot quest and all companion quest and almost all side quest except 4, I think there is a glitch in the dalish tattoo quest can’t seem to get this done., the others quest I haven’t completed are the following: The lost Swords, Who needs rescuing?, The arwiegan scroll:pride unbound. That’s why I need a second play through, though the camera angles gave me a freaking headache the game is worth playing.

James

On March 16, 2011 at 3:22 am

Several people have mentioned not being able to complete quests.
I found some times you lost the ability to click on stuff, chests, loot Doors, you know important stuff. If you save the game at that point then exit the game completly (quit), then restart this gets fixed. Yes I konw this is a “switch it off then on again” fix but it works :)

Yunie

On March 16, 2011 at 10:25 am

The Prestige; Wait for it to unleash that really mean attack that drains alot of health over time. When it does: quickly hide behind one of the pillars (it will do no damage then). Afterwards it will fall apart on the ground and just attack it as much as you can. You also need to kill it´s ugly minions, cause their ranged attacks can really hurt. Repeat until dead! :)

Good luck!

CJ Miozzi

On March 16, 2011 at 8:38 pm

@Blake: He should be there with the Templars; did he die in the battle?

@agod: If you “auto-assign” the attributes, the game does a decent job of distributing the points. You can first pick which skill you want, then let the game decide where to put your attribute points.

Kyocera

On March 17, 2011 at 12:40 am

toriankiel, th ink is in a chest in the dalish camp. Between two landships on the left from the entrance to the camp. You should probably first talk with the craftsman though. Hope this helps, cheers

Zaj

On March 17, 2011 at 8:46 am

One quest you’ve missed and i found while doing “finders keepers,” forgot the name but when talking to Aden, I told him no way i would pay him for info. After that, Varric mentioned to come back at nite, which i did and found the master’s list after a little fight with guard dogs. The paper mentioned something bout the west side of the map so i went there killing folks along the way. Right before the master’s house, there was a bunch of “guards.” After killing them i picked up a quest to get rid of the “nite guards.” After doing finders keepers, i went to the location and fought my hardest battle yet, died 3x. I finally figured out that the boss mage was doing that blood thingy which was killing me. So i killed him first and was able to finish the quest.

CJ Miozzi

On March 17, 2011 at 8:49 am

@Zaj: Thanks for the info! I didn’t have Varric in my party, so that must be why I didn’t have that option.

Hello,
i’m having trouble finding a Varterral’s heart on the second herbalist’s task. It’s supposed to be on the mountain, but I’ve checked the whole place and even the abandoned thaig twice and couldn’t find it.
Does anyone know where to find Varterrals?

You unlock a quest later on when going a companion quest for merill.the dalish leader asks you to go in a cave just past the camp to kill the vatarall

Hey has anyone done the ‘Who needs rescuing?’ side quest in act 3? It says to rescue orlanna from bandits on the wounded coast but i can’t find them. There is a bandit leader just stood down the pathway on the right but he wont do anything. Is this an error?

have someone found the quest for the achievement ”Exorsist” and ”Demon slayer”? realt wanna do those;>

Shrap

On March 21, 2011 at 6:59 am

I both of those, to get exorcist you have collect and destroy all the evil books. When you do Bebensheneck(sp) comes out. Kill him

To get Demon slayer, you have to collect all the Algerian(sp) scrolls and kill the pride demon in Darktown

Shrap

On March 21, 2011 at 7:03 am

Hawke’s armor (Armor of the Champion) is collected throughout Act 3. The chestpiece is on the High Dragon.
High Dragon attacks you throughout 5 waves:
Wave 1- Solo
Wave 2- dragonlings
wave 3- dragon + dragonlings
wave 4- 2dragons + dragonlings
Wave 5- Solo
You will need the potion that gives you 80% life/40% stam back. I used 30 of these over a 15 minute fight

Shrap

On March 21, 2011 at 7:12 am

If anyone know how to solo Arishok pls let me know
I had full armor of the fallen, 41 health/31 const and he pwned me.
I dont think it’s possible to have enough points to solo him by the end of act2…I bought all the books/potions available at the time.
Only thing I didnt do was enchant weapon, but all the better runes are in act 3 so…

Stacy

On March 21, 2011 at 3:28 pm

At the end of Act 2 (are those the only acts? This game was short if so) and can’t kill Arishok. Any clue as to how to do it?? Or if this is the end of the game anyways, maybe I just won’t. Just wondering. I’ve tried many many times, and still can’t, and there’s still lots of enemies left when i die, so it’s not even close. I’m about to give up. I did all the quests, and upgraded my characters as much as possible, so it should be possible to kill him right??? You would think anyways!!!

Jeff

On March 21, 2011 at 4:51 pm

I haven’t done it as a warrior, but as a mage, you need to specialize in the entropy and spirit classes of spells. Basically, you need to use petrify, horror, and the upgraded misdirection hex to keep him the hell away from you while using the upgraded hex of weakness (I can’t remember the real name but it’s the one where you get a crit every time you hit him) to slowly whittle him down. Now, this only worked on normal so I have no idea if it works on harder difficulties and you’re going to be running like a little girl for half the fight, but you’ll still be able to kill him.

On a separate note, yes, they made this fight almost entirely too hard. I had to restart the game and specialize my mage specifically to what I told you in order to kill him and it almost didn’t work. That’s an entirely new level of WTF.

Raual

On March 21, 2011 at 6:12 pm

Ok i beat the game and can’t do anything so really startin to not like this game now…….

Kyocera

On March 22, 2011 at 2:21 am

@Christine first take out the Saarebas, there’s two of them behind Arishok. At first he’s not doing much, just standing and shouting some Qunari stuff so you have a free hand. I played rogue, killed the Saarebas, then the rest of the retinue while Aveline and Fenris tied Arishok in a fight. When he was alone he was like a sitting goose. Combustion Grenades are very useful in this fight, as well as Merrills tempest.

James

On March 23, 2011 at 3:20 am

To solo kill the Arishok as a rouge your best bet is use stealth alot, It doesn’t help against multiple enemies but it’s great to use in a solo while you wait for your potions and abilities to cool down. Then run in slap him, fall back heal and stealth…and repeat. This also works on the Royal Dragon and Meredith.

Kyocera

On March 23, 2011 at 3:51 am

Anyone knows if you get more experience points if you kill arishok solo?

Shrap

On March 23, 2011 at 12:02 pm

One of the only achievements I havent unlocked yet is to earn the respect of an advesary…and icon is of a Qunari…if beating him solo is the only way to earn his respect…that will be one achievement that will stay unlocked :(

As a group it’s way easy – start of fight have varric and anders unleash their AOE’s, that’s gonna take out everyone but the mages and Ari…take out the mages as a group then have Avi tank him…burn-down after that/

On March 24, 2011 at 8:39 pm

@Shrap
No, you can get the achievement before that battle if you just stay honest with the Arishok all the time. This includes telling him about the missing qunari delegates, what you did when you eventually find them, and Isabela having what he was after.

Shrap

@bashreuie: I believe one quest sends you back there, but the loot is gone/different. So loot everything you can–especially those locked chests.

shrap

On April 1, 2011 at 11:34 am

fyi for locked chests, you’ll only need 30 cunning for all of act 1 and 2
IIRC, there are only 4 master chests in the game and none of them have set loot items or anything epic

I solo’d Arishok with a mage, so freakin easy dont know why I was all scared, nothing fancy either:
Auras:
Ele Weapons
Heroic Aura
Rock Armor

Basically I Pretified, Haste, Crushing Prison then ranged him until he charged. Pause, avoid charge, rinse. repeat. couple a fireballs I think.
Mind blast dont work on him. I got fancy and started Firestorming during petrifies.

Way way WAY easier than with a warrior

chrisd

On April 9, 2011 at 12:40 am

2 questions: varric can open some of the locked chests can any of the other locked ones be opened somehow?
i start act 3 without isabelle so what did i do wrong in act 2, that i couldnt unlock her in act3?

Raene

On April 10, 2011 at 11:48 pm

Actually there is a single master chest in Act 2 as I couldn’t open it. Will try to find where it was.

Has anyone got much from the chests though as they’ve just been a source of sellables for me to date (am at the end of Act 2)? The better loot has seemed to be in “named” creature drops which is sort of logical but a bit weird as there are three companion thieves.

shrap

On April 13, 2011 at 2:10 pm

Master chests/traps = 40 cunning

The chests are there just to gain exp, nothing in them is worth equipping

Set-items only drop in main-story quest lines

If you dont have the rogue in act 3 that means you:
1- gave her up to the Qun
2- She didnt like you enough to come back when you went to face the Qun before the final fight.

So boring
Piece of crap

shrap

On April 21, 2011 at 10:32 am

There’s no wrong or right choices; as they all lead to the exact same ending:
Spoilers-
Side with the Mages and you’re a ‘heretic’; cue ending
Side with the Templars and they will use you until you too are a ‘heretic’; cue ending.
And the ending is quite stupid indeed. I didnt know I was done until the credits started rolling. It felt more like a warm-up than then ending…

Funny how they say ‘oh, all your actions form the world’ thats crap.
I’ve played as the ultimate goody goody and the most evil bastard ever and the only thing that changes are a side quest NPCs that might make a side remark as you pass by, but by the next act they are all gone.

I’ll definitely be torrenting DA3

Darkist

On April 23, 2011 at 6:10 am

for:
Secondary Plot: Night Terrors

you can get both Merrill and Isabela apology quest, just bring both with one other character, it is not hard to defeat all the demons with just 2 chars. In the end, you still have to choose getting your 6 attribute points or kill Torpor (wont give you the extra 6 points).

Kill Feynriel = no follow up Feynriel quest since he is dead (forgot when but you will get one to look where is he about later)

Kill Torpor = no 6 free points

I keep losing the fight with Orsino in his various guises and I see from the walkthrough that there is still more to come, so I may not finish the game (I’m on Casual difficulty!). Why did he turn against us after we supported him? I’ve decided I don’t much like this game.

Shrap

On June 3, 2011 at 7:18 am

How to earn arishok’s respect is further up this thread.

Alan, CTRL A is your friend. If you cant beat the game on casual difficulty, your strats need looking at cause they game is crazy easy…CRAZY easy.
As for your decisions – you have none. THis is DA2 you just fight hordes of mobs and watch cutscenes. All decsions have been pre made. DOnt you notice that even when you refuse someone, you end up doing their request anyway (main plot).

Has anyone encountered a glitch with the Mine Massacre side quest? I completed it and there are still quest markers on 2 spots (1 on the High Dragon and 1 on another dragon. Thanks!

@vtskifan its probably because you looted the dragon before the quest for the herbalists task in act 3 could load the same thing happened to me and i just kept going

@rizzla82 you cant buy armor for your companions, you can just upgrade it.

For all the people trying to finish Arishok 1v1 as warrior, I’ve found that a hit and run strategy works best. Just zoom up to him, pause, run away and repeat. As long as your constitution is above 25, you should be able to kill him with about 10 health potions and 10 stamina potions. But it’s extremely long and difficult. First time I 1v1ed him, got close enough to kill him with 1 hit, but had really low hp (only had about 6 health potions) and I died to his impale. So with 10, you should have enough sustenance to keep you going for the whole battle. And if you’ve taken Reaver spec, then you’ll just need about 5 elfroot potions and 15 stamina potions, seeing as you can heal yourself with devour. This method will probably drag the battle for more than 10 minutes, with a lot of pausing and positioning and whatnot.

Hi guys!
really like DA 2. I am currently in act3. the High Dragon is making it difficult for me to move on, but that means I can focus on the other side quests. If anyone is having issues with this part of the game, I will personally try later:
1 warrior (hawke), 2 mages (anders & merrill), 1 rogue (verric) = hope it helps. gonna try this when I get home from work.

There are a few discrepancies in the walkthrough to ‘A Bitter Pill’

•You say not to bring Fenris because it will cause a bug (Step one); then a few steps later (step eleven) you tell me that if I neglected to bring Fenris (which you just told me to in step one) then the quest might glitch.

Also, since you gave the location to the Embrium I think you might as well include the Glitterdust too.

•Between steps four and five if you head in the opposite direction to the chest on the rise.

At the start of the area there is a fork in the road and one fork is blocked off, if you try to take that route from the other end, opposite where the chest is, you find some Glitterdust

Having just looked through where I was: a better explanation as to getting to the Glitterdust

•Just go to the bottom of all the stairs

I found Mage awesome! ‘cept when you get overwhelmed by warrior enemies.

I played Rogue up ’til you face the Arishok ( couldn’t beat him) so I finally gave up on that
Was on level 20 with my rogue too… So how the $&@! you finally beat him? I did everything it said in the walkthrough and still lost to ‘im!

So now I workin on de Warrior… Wish me luck

finally, i ended this game with my rogue (just reach level 19 in the end of this game). i love rogue, because it have dual weapon, it looks really cool.

i dont read this walktrough but i can beat any monster with easy, and i have no difficult to defeat arishok if you learn his (arishok) movement/ attack’s rhyme during your battle with him.

but this game just too short, like CoD Modern Warfare 2.
i need a game that have a long story line, any reccomendation for me?
