I understand that Bioware wanted to create this sense of vast emptyness to really get the feeling of the desert across. I get it, I do. It was super pretty, but after the first five minutes of oooing and aaahing it got really old, really quick. The Hissing Wastes took forever to traverse and honestly I would have loved to see more travelling locations available to mitigate it somewhat…
On another note, Solas has a shiny head. It was even shinier under the light of that bigass moon. At times it looked as if the area had a second moon, ’s all I’m saying.
The Hissing Wastes.......
Man I hated that zone. I went there with the "Hunt the big bad critter!" quest thing and went straight for it and holy shit. I just. So much running. I normally never use mounts in zones when I first explore them, preferring to go on foot so I can explore all the crannies and hear party banter, but I had to make an exception for that place.
The suckiest zone in existence...
Edit: Also ohman have you guys seen the concept art for all the characters? Solas has some wicked hair in them *_*
Are we there yet? Are we there yet? Are we there yet? Are we there yet? Repeat ad-infinitum until you are there. Which can take a while... [internal whine]
One of my favorite zones, mainly because of the dwarven ruins and the lore you learn. Its a great map to bring Varric to, even more so if you have a dwarven inquisitor because of the banter.
I will have you DA:I! I WILL HAVE YOU!
Uck, and I'm such a party banter whore, I made my team traverse the whole of the Hissing Wastes without a horse.
@Angel_Sin: I started off not using my mount and in the end I just went fuck it :I. I had to make an exception too :I.
Yeah I've seen the concepts and weep for what could have been ;o;.
@Deonis: Pretty much like that yes :I Fml.
@Aline1: I had Varric with me :D, that was pretty neat. But still the endless travelling urgh...
@ted the saiyanfox: Good! Go get it! <3
@iamOne: I am too, but yeah I gave up after a while :I.
i thought that i was the only one going though this
XD The wastes. I think the name comes from "waste a lot of time with walking around" My first playhrough was such a pain in the arse and I hated the treasure maps... I thought I never will find the grave-chambers. But much worse was this strange sister... I never found her again the first time :D
