Yeah, no, I mean... smashing the lyrium into smaller portable pieces is probably going to help. Especially when you leave big chunks of it next to the piece you smashed. Maybe wear safety goggles next time though, just in case?
apparently when you smash that one big peice, it shatters like the core that allows it to grow and expain.....and..going by the dlc...its..kinda like you just made a blood clot in the system
Was ever explained how that corruption even works...I mean "You touch it, you grow evil" is kind of a stupid plot device.
There's Cassandra, solving problems.
SHE SAID THEY'RE SOLVED. MOVE ALONG.
Cassandra smashing things with her fists is a 100% success rate.
Some disputed this fact, but they are unable to comment today due to smashing-related injuries.
Yeah the red lyrium related stuff seemed half baked at best. You'd think that you'd need one of the mages to neutralize it, but nope, just give it the old punchy punchy and you're good to go ;)
Red Lyrium made me uneasy in this game. In DAII it seemed much more powerful (the mission in Varic's brother's house, yo), but it was just a single piece. But in Inquisition, in what - a year?, it was in Hinderlands, Storms Coast, Emerald Graves. Especially in Emprise du Lion. It would really be good if someone found a way to cleanse or destroy it, because in few years it could really infect a lot in the continent looking at how fast it spreads.
@Draven22: But how does that stop the tiny shards from corrupting people? And I am pretty sure we left a ton of big old pieces all over entirely unsmashed - Cassandra can only be in so many places at once.
@Sharp-Claw: To be honest, there's a lot about the red lyrium that confuses me, but about 90% boils down to how differently it was treated in DA2 than in Inquisition.
@Guesty Guestface: Y-yes, absolutely, as you say, pleasedon'tpunchmewiththosemightyfistsCassandra
@Karhu: Cassandra IS the hero we needed all along.
@Ciella: Pretty much, but then judging by Varric's account of how he's treating the piece he may or may not have kept after DA2 it sounds like it's super complicated to merely contain it, nevermind neutralizing it.
@mamiser: I'm pretty sure that at this point Orlais is just... fucked. Might as well burn it, nothing good is going to come out of it anymore.
