With Valentine’s Day coming up this weekend, why not have a tip for a trophy that can help you add a little extra romance to your life. This weeks trophy tip comes courtesy of Dragon Age: Origins. Let’s help you get your Warden some action!
Dragon Age: Origins – Hopelessly Romantic
Across all playthroughs, experienced all possible romances – Bronze
TIP: There are four possible romances for your Warden in this edition of Dragon Age. You can choose from Alistair, Morrigan, Zevran, and my favorite Leliana. Along the way you’ll receive a trophy for going through with each romance, just make sure that you see the very awkward sex scene with each character. Before getting that very awkward scene you’ll have to complete a personal quest for each character in order to unlock the scene, so make sure you complete that quest. Let’s break down what you need to romance each of these characters which will get you one step closer to the Hopelessly Romantic trophy
Alistair – Sorry guys, but Alistair only likes the ladies so you’ll have to play as a girl to get into his pants. Alistair is a pretty easy character to romance as long as you joke around with him and encourage him when he makes his romantic gestures. Making good decisions throughout the game will also help with his approval rating. Also make sure to give in game gifts to him that he would like in order to raise his approval of your Warden.
Morrigan – Unfortunately Morrigan is only into guys making me and a million other women very sad. Romancing Morrigan requires you to make a lot of bad choices. Bad choices like always agreeing with her even if she isn’t right. Typical woman… You’ll also have to do a lot of bad things along the way. If you’re given the option to kill someone, do it. This will raise Morrigan’s approval quickly. Finding a hand mirror in an Orzammar along with a few other gifts along the way will also help.
Zevran – One of the two bisexual characters in this game, you can romance Zevran with your male or female Warden. An important part of romancing Zevran is making sure to keep him alive when you first encounter him. You can’t romance a dead Zevran. Make sure you’re always flirty with him and accepting of who he is. This will raise his approval along with a couple of gifts along the way.
Leliana – Last but definitely not least is Leliana. Leliana is available to both male and female wardens and in order to romance her you must recruit her in Lothering when she approaches you. If you don’t there are no other opportunities to approach her. Romancing Leliana really just requires you to talk to her at camp and make good decisions. She’ll naturally open up to you and open more conversations as time goes by. Also, unless she is hardened during the course of the game she will go berserk at the Urn of Scared Ashes if you dump the Dragon’s Blood into the Urn. If she goes berserk you’ll have to kill her and that will end your romance. Giving her gifts like flowers and other nice things will raise her approval of you.
EXTRA TIP If you have the Feast Day Gifts DLC you can use these to help bring up approval very quickly. Be warned though that this sometimes causes the game to glitch and block the romances. I suggest playing through the game and naturally completing each romance.
