There is so much to do in it that I feel overwhelmed at times.
Maybe it's just because I'm getting older, but this kinda thing really turns me off.
I'd rather have a more focused, compact experience than have too many things to do.
I don't mean COD levels of linearity, but I'd rather only have 3 or so objectives to accomplish at one time, including the main story mission.

Obviously it's good to have a lot of content, and many players (especially younger) love dumping hours upon hours into a game... but I just can't do it anymore

You CAN just focus on the main missions, btw. I don't think they outlevel you, or if they do, not by very much. You can safely ignore all the side stuff.

@Xil, the crafting system is actually fairly simple. Basically every item you craft has slots for a certain type of material. Ore, cloth, leather, etc. Depending on what type of Ore (or cloth, or leather) you put into it, the properties of the item you craft will change. The bonuses the different items give are listed underneath them in a list of 4, and that's the bonus they give if they are in that particular slot.

So for example, if you were to craft an armor with Iron as its main component, it'll have an Armor Class of say, 100, because Iron gives Low armor class when used as a main ingredient. If you were to use, for example, Obsidian, that same armor would probably have an AC of 118 or so, because Obsidian is a better material to craft the armor from.

Similarly for the other slots. If you use Iron as the secondary material as well, it may give you +4 Strength as a bonus, whereas if you used Obsidian in that slot, it would give you +6 Strength as a bonus. Basically, the rarer the material, the better the item you're crafting.

Other than that, you can mix and match whichever ores/leather etc you want. It's just a matter of maximizing the bonus, or getting the combination you prefer. (Tip: When you get Skyhold, there is a merchant near the main gate who sells unlimited supplies of "Something Something Glass", which is a pretty awesome crafting material. I always buy a hundred or so and go to town crafting some new stuff for my party.)

@Fion, I think the Hinterlands are the best place to farm Elfroot, but you can also put it in Skyhold's garden, and it'll grow a few every <unknown> amount of time. I think sometimes a merchant will sell some as well.


thank Creston

DA:I deserves it. Awesome game. It is insane how much content they packed into the game.

There is so much to do in it that I feel overwhelmed at times. I think I have 9 actual missions open on my war map, about 20 odd adviser missions, I have no clue what to actually go do next, and so far I've seen 3 of the 12 zones.

I estimate I have roughly 19000 hours of stuff left to do.

100% agree, its an amazing game so far, still not sure why the war map is split into 2, might as well just scroll through it. crafting system confuses me still but will get the hang of it

Looks cool, but I don't see anything in the video that remotely resembles an MMO.

I saw them click the MMO check box though.

and don't forget they selected fantasy settings !!

I loved bastion, especially the audio part and this one sounds a good. But not sure if I should get this on linux or on my ps4, getting the controller to work right still is an issue

I had a good time with it (the original) but after many hours it became to repetitive and not sure why but I found the level gap between my encounters and my party growing to big and that sort of removed the fun.

Like why not cheaper and better internet for everyone? Like everyone's been asking for all along? Like, a nationalized and regulated service because it's too important to be left to a handful of megacorps now?

omg cutter, you don't see the bigger picture, its much more complex !!!

I love honest trailers, and that one was great too ; )

Yeah, it pretty much sums up exactly why I have zero interest in that series.


never seen one before, but made me laugh as it reminded me of all the times I died

Nin, you given Styx a try yet ? loving the hell out of it, sure the gfx might not be 2014 but the game play..... brilliant

openSSL is broken beyond repair with all its legacy code and self made stuff which should be handles by the OS, only 1 group is doing the correct thing and that is the openBSD group who are cleaning all the crap out under the name libreSSL yet the big parties like google, ms, facebook poor money into openSLL to "fix" it..... /sigh
