What’s your play style in Dragon Age: Inquisition?

DAI kill it with light

I don’t care if you guys want to call it hype or whatever, I’m genuinely excited for Dragon Age: Inquisition. In fact, I’m so excited for it, that I’m refusing to review it. Instead, I will be playing it like a normal person – at my leisure with my critical brain turned off. There are a range of ways to play the game, so what’s your style?

I almost always go for a rogue approach to RPGs. I love either sniping from a distance or doing that sneaky backstabbing thing. However, when I got my all-too-brief hands-on time with Dragon Age: Inquisition at Gamescom, they had us playing as more of a tank and that was a whole lot of fun, too. Yes, I know I can go for multiple play throughs to try all my options, but which one will I use the first time?

Over on the Dragon Age Facebook page, there are a bunch of images that have been coming out in dribs and drabs, showing the different skills that you can expect to use when playing as the various classes. Check them out:

I’d still probably go for all the awesome backstab options they’ve added for duel wielders. However, the two-handed option also looks impressive. Either way, combat is a whole lot more difficult and tactical in Dragon Age: Inquisition, something that makes me pretty happy. I like the idea of slashing my way through at times, and then slowing down and using the tactical camera when it’s a tougher battle.

What’s your play style? Are you generally a mage, or do you also like to stab from behind?

    I play one way. The right way. Sword, shield, heavy armour.

        Not anymore no. Still, no harm in pointing out that rogues are wussies afraid of a real fight, mages make pretty sparkly lights & two-handed weapons are for barbarians. πŸ˜‰

          Say that to my DA:O rogue’s face and she’ll cut out your tongue and shove it up your ear!
          Seriously, she’s nearly as durable as the tank build Alister I have and hits nearly 5 times harder.

      Darkness beyond twilight.
      Crimson beyond blood that flows.
      Buried in the flow of time is where your power grows.
      I pledge myself to conquer all the foes who stand
      beneath the mighty gift bestowed in my unworthy hand
      Let the fools who stand before me be destroyed

      by the power you and I possess…

      DRAGON SLAVE!

      Boom you dead thanks to magic!

      Shields are for suckers, attack is the best form of defense.

    I usually start RPGs off with a warrior. The feeling of bashing something’s head in with a blunt object is just so satisfying. Not a big fan of rogues, the only reason I have one in my team at all times is to pick locks.

    Always go rogue. Rogue is the BEST.

    I prefer assassin-type rogue but I am generally a better shield-type warrior.

    Those shield skills and dual-daggers skills intrigue me so it’ll be close.

    I will probably go for a big heavy tank character with either a shield and sword or two handed. Haha good luck stabbing me in the back!
