Just finished it! Clocked in at just over 50 hours, completed a good deal of side quests and both DLCs (they only take about an hour each anyway). This is Bioware's masterpiece; I can't believe how good this game is. I'm already dying to start my next playthrough. I used a Human Noble Warrior specced for tanking, Leliana, Morrigan, and Wynne for most of the game. Definitely a squishy group overall but very versatile with strong healing and CC (those damn Emissaries go down easy with Crushing Prison and Curse of Mortality). The boss fights were pretty epic. Actually the entirety of the game's combat is amazing. The story wasn't half bad either - I really enjoyed how the somewhat generic "kill the bad guys" plot took a backseat to the more intriguing subplots throughout the game. As usual with Bioware the characters are so well developed you feel like they could be real people.

I'm looking forward to trying a more physical-combat oriented group next time, not sure how I want to handle healing but I might use Morrigan as a solo mage with a split between CC and healing. I want to play a rogue next time through as my player character, but I can't decide on which race to pick. I'm leaning towards Dalish Elf. I'm definitely including Sten because he's a freaking powerhouse, and I'm trying to decide between Alistair or Shale for a tank. I only used shale for a little while but he was a fantastic character, unfortunately I didn't bother to get him until I was almost done with the main story and I'm sure I missed out on a lot of great lines. Comparisons to HK-47 are definitely warranted.

I'm not saying this game is bad. Because its really good. But 9/10ths of the dialogue I really could have done without.

Less Talking. More Fighting.
You fail. Epically. That is all.

Ah, interesting. Thanks. My cunning is like 35 since it takes the place of Strength now on my Rogue, so I shouldn't have to far to go.
