It got to the point were I was one-shotting even-level characters, killed a dragon without having to heal, and was doing 800 damage a hit with an activated skill I had. The only battle that was on par with the difficulty of the previous game was the final one, where I was given special abilities to use. Without using the special abilities, only 2 of my party were knocked out, which was my usual going rate for normal confrontations in Origins.
It may be sad that my favorite parts of the game were the beginning when I got to talk with Alistair again, and the epilogue where it mentioned him and my character together.
I even copied down the bits where it mentioned us so I can refer back to it, because my life is that pathetic. Non-spoilery, don't worry.
"Some claimed she returned to Alistair, her true love, and a life far away from both Ferelden and the royal court. Some say that she served the Grey Wardens elsewhere, Alistair at her side, or that the two of them were seen often at the palace in Denerim. After a number of years, however, neither she nor Alistair were seen again. Perhaps they undertook some mission on behalf of the Grey Wardens, or departed for their own adventrues, or… simply disappeared. Most assume their tale is far from complete…"
Oh, our tale is far from complete. Especially the tales of him smacking my tail... Err, TMI, sorry.
But yeah, my gripes are slightly petty, as I did really enjoy a "Further Adventures Of" thing. I could easily play in their world with my character the same way I played WoW, as I do like it that much. I want to explore Orlais and other places, go across the ocean, meet with Grey Wardens from other lands, and help Alistair make decisions in Court (and bed).
I really wish there was more, and the expansion only came out 5 days ago. Sigh.
In other news, I renewed my paid account finally, and redid a bunch of icons. I'm pleased with my new ones, as they make me happy.
