    Dragon Age 2 Walkthrough


    Dragon Age 2 takes place sometime after the Blight of Ferelden, as the Darkspawn and other threats emerge to endanger the world again. The story unfolds over the course of a decade as you rise to power and change the world.

    The Dragon Age 2 story will be a non-linear framed narrative. You will have unprecedented control over the directions your character goes and the sequence in which the story unfolds.

    Combat Styles

    The game’s developers explain how you can combat in Dragon Age 2. Dragon Age 2 lead designer Mike Laidlaw talks about the two different ways to play the RPG sequel — as an action-RPG or as an RPG with a tactical approach. Or you could always be a renegade and combine both ways.

    Opening Moments

    Your character in Dragon Age 2 will be a legendary figure in the history of Thedas. Not only will you hear people respond to your conversations, but your character will also be fully voiced. You will play as a human male or female of any class you wish: Warrior, Mage or Rogue.

    Combat Intro

    Dragon Age 2 will feature reactive combat, allowing you to take real-time control of your character in melee, ranged or spell combat. You can pause the game to assign tactical actions to each party member, or take direct control of any individual character while the customizable tactical AI directs the others.

    Quest 1: The Destruction of Lothering

    Frequently Asked Questions

    Tip #1: How To Earn Money?

    When trying to earn money for the Deeproads expedition, be sure to conserve your money and not spend it on equipment at the various shops in Kirkwall.

    Avoid purchasing Injury Kits. They will frequently drop from creatures if you fall below 9 of them in your inventory.

    Tip #2: How To Get Promotional Items?

    The promotional items such as Hayder’s Razor, Staff of the Parthalan can be very helpful in the early stages of the game.

    Here’s how to get each Promo Item:

    1. Staff of Parthalan – Create a BioWare Social account and sign up for the newsletter.
    2. Hayder’s Razor – Complete the Dragon Age II demo while logged in to your EA Account.
    3. Hindsight – Visit the Dragon Age 2 website Penny Arcade and click on the “Get your DAII Penny Arcade Belt” then follow the instructions.
    4. Ser Isaac’s Armor – Purchase Dead Space 2 on PC/Xbox and follow the instructions on the insert that came with the package or for PS3, simply put in Dead Space 2, sign in with your EA Account and then insert Dragon Age II and sign in with that same EA Account.

    5. Fadeshear Sword and Lion of Orlais Shield – Pre-order Dragon Age II at one of the many participating retailers.

    Tip #3: Will the Story React to the Decisions Made in Dragon Age: Origins?
    Yes. If you import your Origins playthroughs, you will experience the consequences of the choices you made previously. However, this is not necessary to fully experience Dragon Age 2.

    Dragon Age 2 is set in the same world as Dragon Age: Origins, and you will cross paths with many of the same individuals and groups that you encountered before.

    Tip #4: What Is The Quickest Way To Finish The Story?

    If you want to just progress the story, only look to complete the main plots that appear in your journal.

    Tip #5: What Rumors?

    Items listed under ‘Rumors’ in the journal offer insight into quests that will come up later.

    Tip #6: How To Access More New Missions?

    If you cannot access a mission that is listed in your journal, make sure you have the proper followers in your party.

    Tip #7: How To Balance a Warrior-less Team?

    If you are not playing as a warrior, adding Aveline to your team is a good way to absorb enemy damage and use “TAUNT” to focus the enemy attacks away from your mages and rogues.

    • I played the demo and felt that it was very lack luster. This made me very sad. It could be b/c it is just paired down, but at the beginning I felt that the motion was forced, and all I was doing was power gaming. I’ll still buy it, but I didn’t think they would disappoint that much … and so far I feel disappointed.

    • Aw that sucks that you were disappointed with it! I know a lot of people that are looking forward to Dragon Age 2, it’ll be interesting to see how they think of the game compared to your reaction.

    • Well like I said, I realize that it is a demo. It just didn’t leave me excited for the game’s release. I also had numerous issues trying to get it installed on my PC (just to see if it would play despite my older vid card) and it refused to even boot up. I had to play the demo on a friend’s PS3. That may have negatively colored my reaction a little bit. I still need to get a new video card though, so as soon as I do that I’ll go ahead and purchase the game and give it a try.

    • gamer

      I don’t know what’s wrong, I downloaded the Dragon Age 2 Demo, than clicked on play & it said that the demo was missing d3dx9_43.dll. I don’t know what to do so I can play the game.

    • @ gamer – I had the same issue. I have been told since via someone on Game Banshee that the problem can be solved by downgrading to DX9. Of course if the demo was properly made you would not have to worry about doing this.

      I bought da2 and feel soooo cheated!! With da origins I loved that game even tho the code monkey’s messed up causing My saves at higher levels to “corrupt themselves” I tried different platforms,removeable memory and friends systems yet I still got freezes and corrupted files no matter what I did….. EA provided NO help! That aside it was a great game so I bought awakenings …. very disappointing to say the least! An “expansion pack” that locked you into a tiny area? An now the great da2 …. it sux!! The play is stifled and totally different from origins…. I think I actually hate it! EA riding high from a great game as origins has suckered Me for the last time… I am not buying any add-ons or sequels after the disasters they put out after origins!!!! I hope the code monkey’s will correct the problems with origins and make it a patch!

    • wtf

      DA2 isn’t on Mac. Why is that option there?

      finished this game at last, I should say one of the best games I’ve ever faced in my life, that’s because you can control 4 people at the same time, and you can see them fighting all together against enemies (dont’ wanna control them – just give commands and watch them fighting, believe me- not playing gives you much enjoyment). 
         One hint for everyone- if you can’t beat someone, always run back with all of your team members – their health bar increases sometimes(you may need mages in your team with their health resurrection ability)
