    If DA2 were a standalone game, it would be a solid 6.5-7/10. As it is, it's a decent game but an awful sequel. It's an incredibly lazy/rushed game playability wise, even if the combat itself is pretty dynamic and interesting if needlessly frustrating. Story wise, it's lazy and leaves you feeling very angry. Characters wise, it's great, specially companions. It's Rivalry system is it's greatest merit, since it finally allows you to form a strong bond with someone while disagreeing with them a lot.

    Finally you don't need to suck up people to have a good rapport with them. It also even brings loads of interesting character development. DA2 tries to be ME and DA fusion, but it ends up as a railroad mess that feels like neither, except for some things.

    DA O is the crown jewel of Bioware together with ME 2 imo. Both excelled at what they tried, DA O giving you a control of the plot and characters and variability that is just insane. You can be so much there.

    Can some tell me what happens in DAI if
    Varric keeps the red lyrium shard? I did precisely one play through where I let him keep it and upgrade Bianca with extra rune slots. Gameplay wise, it's a crappy choice when having Sandal deal with the shard nets you the unholy power of the PLR.

    Nothing. Some extra dialogue in Inquisition iirc. Keeps it in a vault or something. A missed opportunity imo, though iirc Varric did take some smart precautions to avoid being influenced by it.

    I cannot for the life of me roll one of the characters I want (Notably: Jeanne, Saber/Altria, or Waver.)

    I do have two accounts, one with Altera and a bunch of 4*'s, and one with an Altera and a 5* CE.

    But I actually kinda dislike Altera's look.


    Sadly can't do any more reroll's until tomorrow either, cause my internet bandwidth is almost maxed.

    Have you tried directly from APKPure? Alternately hearing it works on Qooapp now. Android only.

    Tried trading an account on reddit?

    I was lucky to roll Waver within 20 rolls with Marie, Atalanta, and D'eon besides. Will probably redeem Berserker for my free 4* and hope for Emiya down the line. I've run out of QP leveling and ascending various characters, now waiting on events to farm mats for skills and 2nd ascension.

    My user ID is 314245984 if anyone's interested in dedicated play... just let me know your IGN.

    Started playing here too on release - rolled a Artoria/Altera double 5* so I'm pretty happy. Now just saving up for Gilgamesh, up to 109 now and I hear we are getting 20 free quartz tomorrow.

    My user ID is 477,819,585 if anyone wanted to add me (always leave one friend slot open for requests), just gimme a heads up so I can free some space.

    I wish there was a way to do rerolls on F/GO without having to redownload the 350~mb every time.

    ---------- Post automerged at 05:52 PM ---------- Previous post was at 09:49 AM ----------

    Well, I've given up on rerolling on F/GO for now.

    If anyone wants an account that has Altera 5* and a 5* CE let me know. (I forget what the 4* from the tutorial roll was offhand.)

    I lucked out and rolled Jeanne and altera and a bunch of 4 stars. Even though I shouldve been saving for Gilgamesh.

    I tried adding the people here but you're all full.
