Wogrim Pseul Dragon Age Origins Dwarf Rogue Commoner Nightmare playthrough walkthrough gameplay



Wogrim
Choosing the enemies to kill first basically goes like this: you want to drop the enemies' dps as quickly as possible. Basically this amounts to killing the lowest-health enemies first, except in very rare situations where an enemy is doing ridiculous aoe damage. Use healing potions manually so that the AI doesn't use them on easier fights. If a character is getting beat up a lot, run them away from the action, but make sure you don't do any target-switching that messes up the focus-fire.

Stuns are usually best used on the enemy that has the highest dps (determined manually) but for most fights it doesn't matter, just make sure you aren't having any of your characters run across the battlefield just to use an ability, or that you screw up the focus-firing by using an ability on a different target and not switching to a different character.

The only real important tactic that you should basically have on all your characters is Enemy: Target of: Controlled party member -- Attack That should always be the last tactic on the list. Above it you put in tactics for using abilities (because you want them to use their abilities as soon as they're available). Damaging abilities should usually also be set to use on the target of the controlled party member.

The beginning is tough for a Rogue because you're less effective in melee combat (which you can't avoid) than a fighter unless you're backstabbing. Because of that, you need to use your stun and get behind your enemies as much as possible. When you have a party member, make sure his tactics have him attack the same enemy as the player-controlled character, because most fights are impossible without good focus-fire. Also be aware that dual-wielding has penalties; get the passives that help it.

Uh.... you mean what's the best way to try to tackle this fight as a Dwarf Rogue or what? Your question needs to be more specific.
