Merrill wasn't even on my radar at first, Isabella being my initial pick for my first play-through for obvious reasons. As the game progressed however, her naive honesty became a shining beacon amidst the obscuring half-truths and filthy lies from most of the rest of the NPCs.

Merrill... may have taken some extreme paths, but at least she is forthcoming in her reasons and motivations for doing so. Her lack of deception is what makes relation building with her so compelling, even if platonic.

~~~~ ~~~~

Was having fun being mean and jerkassy as a female mage Hawke, but I kinda missed Bethany, so I went to restart as a female rogue Hawke on Hard. Playing her as a wiseass. Some of the purple dialogue choices are hilarious, as are the reactions to them.

Combat on Hard is still kinda easy. The lack of friendly fire really removes a lot of difficulty. The most stress I have had so far is choosing what to talent in as a Rogue. I know I definitely want to dual-wield, but the sheer number of options is staggering.

Cheers.

Sarcastic female Hawke is a bit of a Cloudcuckoolander.

Did anyone notice how Hawke starts to talk differently depending on your preferred choice of dialog? If you consistently choose polite options, he will open up conversations politely even before you choose a dialog, smart alec gets wise-ass remarks and asshole gets to-the-point remarks.

It's a subtle thing, but a nice detail nonetheless. My mage Hawke now starts virtually any conversations with an aura of "I know you want me to do shit for you, so just get it over with."

Yeah, if you choose one type of response over another most times, the responses will all shift toward your chosen personality. It's pretty cool, and something I hope Bioware uses in ME3.

Snarky female Hawke cracks me up a lot. Boneless women flopping through the streets!

Edit: I don't think Thedas has much in the way of anti gay discrimination. Since the Chantry doesn't seem to care, the usual motivation for hating gay people doesn't exist. They'd rather spend their time hating mages.

yea i did notice that my female hawke was a sarcastic nice girl but my male was pure nice and hardly joked several times they said diffrent stuff.

it might be what you choose to say in the previous choices in the conversation or all it gradually builds up over choices.

The voice actor choices were perfect for a snarky female Hawke, but the male Hawke voice works best for nice or asshole... cuz he kinda sounds like Duncan.

As far as I'm concerned, male Shepard doesn't exist. Jennifer Hale did such an amazing job voicing Shepard that I really wish Bioware would have just made her the Canon Commander Shepard.

But because they modeled the default male Shepard after some Australian male supermodel, he has to be on the boxart.

I actually love female Hawke's design and I don't even bother changing it. She's cute and those intensely blue eyes are awesome.

And honestly female shepard doesn't exist to me. and she sounds like a robot just as much as the male does because of the diolog... I'm glad they did what they did with his appearance and chose to pick the male for Canon. because think of it. if they choise a supermodel for male shepard .. just imagin who they'd pick for female canon shepard it could be megan fox XD

I have a feeling that Morrigan was probably right, the Maker never actually existed. The Tevinters, the Primeval Thaig and the lyrium idol... I bet those were actually the real cause of the darkspawn.
Haha Shale, the pigeon squishing mountain of rock, yep, many lulz there. I really loled at the mention of the bartender, indeed.

True, you get the best out of Morrigan if you romance her, but she was like a sister to my fem Warden as well. There was this collab that Aimo and David Gaider did for a little comic, it made me a Morrigan fan forever. So cute ;( Is it too much to hope that my Warden disappeared to go after Morrigan again? No? Ah, I wish.

I hated Leliana, oh shoes, oh you have such nice hair..oh whatever..I love clothes and shoes just as much as the next girl, but she seriously annoyed me to no end. I really only tried her romance to get the foursome with Isabela

Bethany is probably the best example of Ore no Imouto ga Konna ni Kawaii Wake ga Nai.

Most of all, you have to be disciplined and you have to save, even if you hate our current financial system. Because if you don't save, then you're guaranteed to end up with nothing.

I don't think I like any of the females in DA2 and none of the romance stuff catches my interest. I esc'ed a lot of dialogs on my 2nd playthrough and somehow I accidentally slept with Merril and she ended up in my house.

Bioware needs to tell one of their devs to play some japanese eroge and borrow some ideas from that!


I found out why Anders cannot have an entropy tree and Merril cannot have a Creation tree/
I decided to build a super anders that is a dedicated healer. Since healing spells scale with target health and not magic, I can afford to dump a truckload of points into Cons instead of magic. Anders' broken vengeance tree has passive cooldown reduction as well as martyr, which I spam when not doing anything useful. This allows Anders to cast his heal, barrier, and haste spells over and over in short periods of time. Chaining haste alone is enough to justify having no real offensive spells.

Anyone who puts a specialist rogue with speed and Beth with haste should be vomiting from seeing too many numbers right now.

I keep seeing my damage stack like a machine gun belt being chewed up.

Hawkette:Yes, now. You wait here.
Carver: This is just....wrong.
Carver rivalry +5

changing your mind
Hawkette: Fine, I'll do this some other day.
Carver: I can't believe you even considered doing that..And with me in the next room.


How little you know your sister Carver...She would totally do that with you in the next room just to piss you off more..If that is even possible

For 2 hand warriors, fervor from end of the Reaver tree gives +30% speed when you kill an enemy. Barrage in berserker gives +50% attack speed for 20s every 30s (upgraded).
Add haste on top of that and your wonder why hawke's arm hasnt fallen off.
