|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: 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.
Hints: The Mask Reference:
In the 'Prime Suspect' mission when you meet Mr. Dupries, have Varric in your party. Provide the sarcastic
response of letting Dupries talk his way out the situation. Varric will make the comment 'I bet
20 silver it's 'it wasn't me, it was the one-armed man''. This is a reference to The Mask when Jim
Carey tries to defend his innocence when he gets captured.
