  • Make a point to speak with as many characters as possible. Some of them will have quests, while others could potentially be recruited as agents.
  • Some of your foes will drop research items, take these to Minaeve, the Inquisitions researcher to gain bonuses against certain adversaries.
  • Collecting crafting items will allow you to create your own weapons, armor, potions, upgrades and grenades. Picking up minerals, herbs, cloth and animal hides will allow you to use schematics to craft new items.
  • Gaining XP will allow you and your party members to level up. Be on the lookout for an arrow icon that will tell you who has recently leveled up, then enter the Character Record menu to choose new abilities.
  • Be sure to use the tactical camera prior to engaging in combat, this will allow you to survey the battlefield and get an idea of what you'll be going up against.
