Dragon Age: Inquisition Patch 10 Notes

In Patch 10 for Dragon Age: Inquisition, our focus is on introducing fan-requested features, some base ability changes, and a number of bug fixes.

We’re happy to introduce the player wardrobe. You can now choose from a range of different outfits for your Inquisitor thanks to a wardrobe in Haven or Skyhold.

The winners of the Untold Relics of Thedas contest have been selected, and their creations placed in the game. The relics’ locations are a mystery for your Inquisitior to uncover.

Thanks to prominent Thedosian scholars and Shapers, we’ve implemented a series of gameplay adjustments, designed to customize, improve, and balance the player experience.

We’ve also added the ability for players to consolidate account bound collectibles across games with a newly added Golden Nug statue located in Skyhold and Haven. With it, you can access your herb seeds, crafting schematics, mounts, Skyhold decorations, and potion recipes across your online saves of the same platform. Just touch the statue with your post-game character to get access to this feature. The Golden Nug becomes available if one or more of the characters on your account have completed the game at least once.

Full details on new features to come.

Of Nugs and Men – Featuring Allegra Clark

Some teams are all work. Four agents are having trouble getting past the early zones, now that the elven ruins are chock-full of darkspawn. With a little planning, coordination, and a hint of luck, they just might make it through. However, the best laid plans of nugs and men often go awry.
