Default Re: Dragon Age Detail

My favorite character is a mage and friendly fire never stopped me from using Area of effects. I send my tank in the fray so he gather the enemies around him and then cast cone of cold/fire/electricity on them. Sure he gets hurt, but he always survives. Same for the big area of effect zone spells. I send the tank in and then start spamming those. All you have to do is avoid casting on your squishies.

And the cones aren't hard to aim in melee either. By moving my mage around I can usually hit 2-3 enemies without hitting my allies. And it's not like Morigan for example can't survive 2-3 spells, so if I really have to I don't mind hitting an ally every once in a while.
