It is hard to manage your inventory in Dragon Age: Inquisition, especially when not all “valuables” are junk. Is it safe to sell all? As you progress, you may not want to sell off every underpowered dagger, sword or staff. But Bioware has listened to us, at last.
In a blog post about Patch 5 coming to Dragon Age: Inquisition, they explain a new element that’s coming in the latest patch:
In Skyhold, we’re adding party storage to the Undercroft—a new feature that many players asked for and we’re happy to finally add. And for those looking to spice up their look, we’ve added an item tinter that lets players use crafting materials to change the color of armor.
Patch 5 is actually part of a beta program which PC players can enlist in. It will include a range of new features such as the Black Emporium, an underground shop run by an immortal proprietor where Inquisitors can find powerful artifacts and tools, epic equipment and even customize their voice and appearance. Other patch features will include an auto-attack key for single player. They claim that this is to “support different playstyles” but I honestly do wonder about people who use auto-attacks and auto-leveling. If you’re not even interesting in selecting abilities for your characters in combat or progression, why are you bothering with an RPG?
You’ll be able to sign up for the Beta program through the Keep in the near future, so if you’re interested, keep an eye out for that. I played the game on console, so I won’t get to test drive these features for you. Still, I really like that they’re adding in the inventory management element; that has to be one of the biggest issues with the original game. I’m glad Bioware listened to us about this, although I’m still confused why it was left out of the original game.
