This is the official posting thread for Dragon Age: Inquisition's second DLC, "The Descent".

There is both a SPOILERS comment (to discuss the DLC) and non-spoilers thread (to discuss issues relating to DLC availability, problems, etc.) on this post. Please put all spoilers about the DLC behind an LJ-SPOILER cut. Thanks!

For PS3 and Xbox360 players:
Unfortunately, it was announced that this and all future DLC will only be released on PC, PS4, and XboxOne. :(



The general release Dragon Age: Inquisition "Completed Story" discussion post that was previously pinned can be found here.

NOTE: There WILL be spoilers. LJ-SPOILER tags will NOT be required or enforced, so read at your own risk.

If you're avoiding all spoilers, you should NOT read the comments or under the cut.


[Collected notes of Interest in List Form]

  • The trailer leaked in Spanish? Thanks to chibimiji and tov01 for posting it in SQS
  • More bard songs to come in some form and somewhere
  • Golden Nug will be added with the next patch. It will allow you to upload your collectables, schematics and various other unlockable things (skyhold customisation) to the cloud, which will them let you have them unlocked for all new characters you make, right from the start of the game. It appears to be opt in, if you don't want them unlocked for a character, you don't have to have them unlocked.
  • Next patch will add more outfit customisations. Adding Casual Wear, Formal Wear, and Outer Wear options to the game. This should let you wear something different in Skyhold (Pyjamas!) and avoid the Red Formal outfit. Not clear if the Formal Wear is just for the Inquisitor, or for all characters. Also not clear what distinctions there are between "Casual" "Formal" and "Outerwear". Imagine stolen from Sylvia on twitter.
  • Golden Nug is same platform only. Xbox One --> Xbox One. PC --> PC. Etc.
  • Official confirmation of DRAGON AGE™: INQUISITION Official Trailer – Trespasser DLC. 8th of September release (North America?).
  • Game Informer interview about Trespasser

  • It is set PostGame. 2 Years later and involves more character interaction.
  • You will decide on the "Legacy" of the Inquisition
  • Solas will appear, but it isn't his story and he's not a confirmed party member.
  • Other companions may not rejoin, depending on your relationship with them and the choices you made. Divine characters might come back
  • Not a single open world like Hakkon
  • Laidlaw states it is that Trespasser is final piece of Dragon Age Inquisition to come out.
  • Trespasser will release at the same time for all playforms (Sony EU is typically delyed a day)


  • Reminder that Bioware are doing a QA at 10:30-12:00, the 30th of Aug local time. No clue if it is being streamed or recordered anywhere.




Stream is over. Catch the VOD here.

Also, it's a place for Dragon Age fans to discuss semi-to-completely off topic things with one another. Some examples of fandom fluff are fics/arts in progress, youtube videos, icons, funny pictures, favorite quotes, help for whatever you're stuck on, and Wild Mass Guessing for future Dragon Age games.

The only rules are (1) No personal attacks, (2) NSFW stuff needs (for fic) a warning or (for art) a separate link, and (3) Post any spoilers in spoiler tags (<LJ-SPOILER title="Spoiler (click to open)"> insert spoiler here </LJ-SPOILER>)

Basically me.

Hi everyone, I'm a long time, too long, user and I've been apart of the Dragon Age community, mostly lurking since the first game. Introductions over, I've come to realize that it gets lonely playing in a sea of random people and I want to open myself up a little more to people. So if there is anyone out there that can tolerate me, I would love for you to add my PSN (same name as on here.) so we can go hunting together.

Forget the more part. I was just trying to be funny, failed horribly. Please feel free to delete, this was stupid.
