|Dragon Age 2 Cheats and Hints!|
Hints: Joss Whedon Reference:
During random companion dialogue in the city between Anders and Isabella, she mentions that abominations
are easy to escape because they make loud noises like 'Grr Argh', which Anders refutes saying
'Abominations to not go Grr Argh'. During the ending credits of Buffy The Vampire Slayer, Joss Whedon's
'Mutant Enemy Productions' credit screen shows a little monster which says 'Grr Argh?'
Hints: Wizard of Oz Reference:
In your home when your mother says that her children should be nobles now, your uncle says 'And if wishes
were poppy we'd all be dreaming right now'.
Hints: Recommended Party Configuration:
It is best to plan your party from the start. While planning character roles, remember 'One to take it,
one to deal, one to weaken, one to heal'. You should have a damager, tank, entropist and healer.
This will ensure you have one member taking all the damage and bringing the attention away from
the rest of the party. Have an entropist [probably Merrill] to weaken and demoralize the enemy, a
healer to strengthen and maintain the party, and a damager to inflict the pain. This will ensure a
well rounded party that covers all aspects of combat.
