Yeah, have no idea why I didn't finish...Character Restart Syndrome most likely.

Anyway, started a human mage.  Did the Harrowing, talked with everyone, escorted Duncan to his room, killed the spiders.  Told First Enchanter Irving about the plan, went down stairs, killed everything, found the blood, Jowan destroyed the vial and....I can't get out of the basement.  The door turns blue, shows an up arrow and....nothing.

Tried reloading the final fight etc...nothing.  Not off to a good start.

Had the same problem with the second mage.  I then switched to Jowan and the door opened.  Go figure.

Damn it's impossible to make Morrigan happy!

Well... not exactly impossible. Just distasteful.

You can make her happy by doing exactly what she wants all the time. :P

Or never taking her on any quests ever and just giving her gifts.  DA:O and DA2 do that thing where what they don't see doesn't offend them, so leave them in camp and only tell them what they want to hear and they'll all like you (with a few exceptions for major quest choices).

Well, I'm setting it up so that she's my main magic DPS (and she is kicking a lot of ass) so I take her everywhere. 

I did manage to get her back into the positive area by giving her her mom's book.  I think after I clear out these werewolves I'll go kill her mom for her too.

Ha! I just thought Morrigan was tough.  I've got her happy enough now.  But I swear I can't even talk to Zevran without pissing him off. 

Anyway, I managed to cure the werewolves and get the Elves on my side at the same time.  Onward to pay Flemeth a visit.

QUESTION:  I've got a pile of coin and haven't spent any yet.  I can't figure out what to do with it.  The weapons/armor that I see for sale that would be an improvement on what I have cost a crazy amount and it seems like I typically find something better in short order anyway.  Anything worth looking for?

You managed to piss off Zevran? What kind of crazy is your character? Zevran is like a hippy elf (with ginsu knives), super easy-going, tons of fun.

He also happens to be my DAO go-to romance option. :lol: (I mean, sure, Alistair is sweet and Leliana sings pretty and has that delicious french accent, but Zev... Zev rocks)

As for gold: I dunno. I don't remember ever having any particular use for it. I haven't played in a while, maybe there was stuff worth buying later?

Generally, the best weapons/armour are found or quest rewards, and the best rings/belts are purchased.. Lifegiver (a ring sold by Garin in Orzammar), Andruil's Blessing (a belt sold by Quartermaster in the Mage Circle), Ring of Ages (sold in Wonders of Thedas shop in Denerim) and Spellward (sold by Bodahn in party camp) are the best accessories.

Onward to pay Flemeth a visit.

Me: Okay boys.  It's one old mage.  We've killed lots of mages.  GET HER!

Flemeth: I'm a dragon LOL.

Me: Bitch turned into a dragon!

Flemeth: Bitches turned into four little piles of ashes!

That was one of my favourite "oh shit!" moments from the first time I played Origins. The other was the joining scene with Duncan and Jory.

Yeah that was a good moment.  Got to love Flemeth.

Or never taking her on any quests ever and just giving her gifts. 

This is what I did since I was a mage and was kicking all kinds of ass.  Never really took her anywhere.

Okay, donating stuff to the allies' chests in camp?  Worth it?  I assume it does something to the endgame fight or campaign but I can't figure out what's worth it to donate, what's not, how much, how often, etc.  Any tips?
