Have to agree; some bosses/adversaries are unbalanced with respect to your party. The only solution I've found (boring) is
- pause
- analyse
- position
- act
- start loop again
Not very immersive and not particularly creative

Hi Solta - suspect you have a corrupt save file. I would pick up an earlier save and play forward again

The cowl, staff etc are either Dark Times or Quests and Legends - they are substantial mods where each takes up as much time as the main DOA plot. They also have the merit of being played INSIDE the main DA:O plot so that your character build goes a lot further. Dark Times introduces new specialites...

As other have said, the "best fit" build depends firstly on you personal style preferences, then on the build of your other partners. This time through my mage line up is Morrigan (offense) and Wynne (defense, healing and some offense). Before giving the stats and kit, please note I have Dark Times ...

If you want to use all the DW skills and abilities, they will stay available longer with higher willpower - use rings and other goodies rather than sacrifice basic stats. Your DW will be even more impressive if you make him a beserker (beserk+momentum really increases the damage rate).

No problems at all with combat. Tactics are set to ranged so she dosn't just stand there doing nothing.... Not a major combat issue because my style is to avoid direct combat interaction as much as possible (3 mages and one archer - get them out of the way from a distance - the coward who runs away ...

Thanks again for the suggestions Since the last post I've tried re-specializing her (Character Respec addon v1.6), to no avail I've stripped her and equipped her with a standard bow - no joy As for combat skills - 4th level (expert) Yes I have several mods, none of which have presented problems so f...

Thanks for the reply SWC ideas always welcome. Yup, she's equipped with Marjolaine's Recurve and is able to fire as a standard archer - no problem on that count - just a total absence of abilities... I have un-equipped ad re-equipped, without any effect - with and without saving between times. Tacti...

If you want to see some impressive damage on a dual wielder, try momentum+beserker - the DPS is frightening!

Leliana's Archer abilities stopped working

I'm well into my current game (which includes all the standard DLCs plus Dark Times Act 1), Leliana's archery abilities no longer function. She's level 14 and has worked fine until now, but whenever I try to use Arrow of slaying, Rapid Shot or any other archer based abilities a message appears above...

There is also storeage_chest.dazip which adds a storage chest to your main camp just next to the representatives of the races you recruit into your army (mage, elf, dwarf ...). Unlike Warden's keep it isn't a DLC that you have to buy and you can use it any time once you've set up camp for the first ...

All Mage Party

Having studiously avoided the beserker approach over the last 6 games, I was intrigued to see what effect DW's idea would have. Having picked up Oghren in Orzamar I knew I would HAVE to have him in the party for the Branka confrontation so that seemd like a good opportunity to try it out. I re-specc...

Glad you liked it.

I've played it twice and enjoyed it both times, although on storyline, RtO takes on extra dimensions if you are accompaned by Wynne and Alistair (after all, they went through the original battle with you....).
