In an interview with AusGamers Mike Laidlaw, Creative Director of Dragon Age: Inquisition, confirmed that Blood Magic was not in the game. He also talked about how he'd like to see it utilised in future games.
Really EA like WTF.... Calling it now Blood Magic will be future DLC.
Imagine being given the choice to use blood magic as the Inquisition to save the world. Yet you ostracize everyone in doing so. It would be epic.
The reason they took it off was because it didn't make sense lore wise to gameplay. Blood magic is grossly overpowered.
But I enjoy being a demigod
its pitiful, but this really is true. Bloodmagic will be sold a few months from now for $7.99 in a stupid DLC pack. EA = garbage. Just wait and see. See if blood magic isn't in DAI in the future.
Maybe EA will pretend to be the good guy and say "Even though blood magic was not in the final game we've heard our fans and have decided to put it back in, it will take some time and work but it'll be available soon as DLC." Of course it's probably already made and ready to go with a few button pushes.
lol my thoughts exactly
Isn't the use of blood magic like main beef between Templars and mages?
One of em the templars are there because mages have a strong connection to the fade which is where demons also live and sometimes mages will make deals with these demons which will most likely lead them to be abominations
Doesn't matter to me. That is why I love the DA mythos. No matter what, I side with the mages.
Boooo. Mage was always my go to Origin in DA:O, they had such a interesting story and lore to them. Keep it up Bioware, let's see if you can make a bigger mess than Mass Effect 3
Seems like Bioware is on track to do just that. Remove healing magic, now Blood Magic, what's next?
Next, you play the game and see if Bioware "did just that". Also, it's not present as a specialization, doesn't mean it disappareared and enemies won't use it.
Sad but not surprised , since you start as an inquisitor ( wich is why i didnt want that status for da3) . I still harbored hope you could rebel and become one ultimately
Whaaaaaa Are they serious :|
"It should be like the Malkavian option from Vampire the Masquerade: Bloodlines." Ok - I won't be able to stop thinking of a Bio ware made Vampire Masquerade game for weeks!!!
I kind of get what they're saying, I didn't play DA 2, but in 1 I got the impression it was supposed to be a bigger deal than it was; basically you have to do some nasty things to get it and you get some nasty options at certain points, but in combat it felt very light and the wickedness never came across.
Exactly what I said. The wickedness of using blood magic never really came for you. For every other person in the world, it has major repercussions. For you it some reason doesn't though?
I am actually kinda ok with this. It always bugged me how every person who uses blood magic becomes corrupted by it but somehow you use it and it doesn't cause any problems. It would be different if when you became a blood mage it caused problems within your party or other aspects. Just playing around with an idea. What if you when you are a blood mage, you would encounter demons trying to corrupt you more often. Regardless if blood mage was an option, it should come with some serious consequences besides your health being drained when using magic.
It's funny reading people jumping to conclusions.
I think it would be perfect to let the player use blood magic in Dragon Age Inquisition mainly because undoubtedly the Inquisitor has some connection with The Fade
I just want to play the game to see which direction they moved it in for the new Gen. Blood magic was a powerful option, but I hardly use it is very destructive and goes against my personal principles. Having said that I I do understand why people would miss the option to use it.
Blood Wound Forever!!!
boooooooo! need me some blood magic. im a maniac psychopath and i need the power of the dark arts :)
me too hope the next game we can have Blood Magic
