Dragon Age: Origins – Platinumed

Well it took me 5 years, a PSN name change, and a through walk through of the Traveler trophy to finally accomplish this feat!

I was originally given Dragon Age as a birthday gift in 2009 and fell in love with it. I have always been a huge fantasy fan so this game was right up my ally. I had completed the game a couple of times on my old PSN and even with some of the graphical glitches on the PS3 thought it looked great.

With the upcoming release of Dragon Age: Inquisition I decided it would be a great opportunity to reply it under my new PSN handle, Gutvik. I remembered that the Bronze Traveler trophy was a royal nuisance to unlock so before starting I found a list of all the places I needed to visit to remove the frustration.

Once I started as a Human Noble Rogue named Kristzi I was addicted for a second time. Kristzi exploits as a Grey Warden are listed below:

*Spoilers* By the time my campaign was ending the Werewolves were cured, the Mage tower restored, Harrowmont was King of the Dwarfs, the Urn was found and shared to the world, the Anvil was destroyed, and Conner was saved. The final sacrifice came down to Alistair and me, Morrigan was not to happy when I said no to her offer, and Alistair made the death blow to kill the Archdemon.

After completing my first run with Kristzi I managed to collect every trophy except Hopeless Romantic (still needed Morrigan), Archmage, and Master of Arms. I admit to getting the Archmage and Master of Arms trophies by taking advantage of the Witch Hunt DLC, but hey what’s a man with limited time to do.

I am currently working through the game a second time with a City Elf Warrior named Gutvyk. With this trek through Ferelden I plan on getting the actual ending I want when I start Dragon Age II, along with completing the Hopeless Romantic trophy.

As for my platinum quest, it was just a few nights ago that Gutvyk charmed Morrigan to get the Witches Gone Wild (and Hopeless Romantic in the process) trophy to capture my first Platinum. Even though there are no more trophies to be had I am still having a great time playing to get to the ending I want.

Once I complete Gutvyk’s campaign I plan on a little break before tackling Dragon Age II again. Perhaps a little Ratchet and Clank, DMC, or ICO for something a little different.

Well it was a year ago today that my son was born. It signalled a monstrous reduction in my free time to blog and play video games but would not change it for the world.

I hope you had a great day my little Monster 🙂
