There is this one woman in the game, just standing around during the qunari attack. She gets me every time. And then I go ahead and loot the body of some nobleman while she's standing around all traumatized - because I'm an adventurer. Also, nobility have surprisingly crappy loot.
You know which NPC always gets me? The guy crouching down in the docks area, in where you fight those street guys just to save Donnic's ass. He's ALWAYS there and you'd think those bandits would just kill him off already. I also had so many NPC's walk through my battles, it's not even funny. Even Fable has the decency to have its NPC's get scared from the fights and run off. D:
But my favorite NPC would be that drunk in the Hanged Man where he's hitting on the waitress from all the way over the other side of the building.
In DA:O they looked cared, now... Guess Kirkwall is just insane. And all his civilians are insane too XD
In Kirkwall this must be every day occurrences, which leads to the population not giving a damn anymore XD
As long as it doesn't involve them? Meh.
My title explains what happened to the treasure system. Everything is locked in these complex chests... and they're useless crap! Don't sell for much at all. In my opinion...after Act 2 also... any DLC stuff you don't need/want... you should be able to sell for a lot more (Due to it would make getting to the Deep Roads alot easier.) Maybe like rare item hunters or in the Black Emporium?
Yeah... and while I like the "crap loot" system, it suddenly became very obvious how much of the loot was genuinely crap. It hurt my ickle looting heart, it did D:
What is your opinion however on the whole "After Act 2 you should be able to sell some DLC stuff for serious coin."? I mean, seriously...that's what people LOVED to do with Dragon Age Origins with all the DLC stuff you'd get once you completed everything...when I saw each of them worth one copper...my heart kinda broke into two.
I hate it. With a passion. It meant that when the DLC stuff was no longer useful, I couldn't sell it and use the money to buy useful stuff D< Meanwhile, I don't normally feel the urge to buy every shiny thing that's awesome and I can make it through the game without them, but it felt like... a very wtf economy.
