The Warden's Party:Edit

NOTE: To save space, I'm linking to the Dragon Age Wiki for spell/talent trees. In addition, I'm listing the farthest they've gone in the tree rather than all the spells/talents from it.

The Warden, now the Warden-Commander, Arl of Amaranthine, and Hero of Ferelden, is an elven mage. He is the team member with the highest damage output, the highest tanking ability, and the best battle commander. As such, he is easily the most important member of the party. He has very high health, but very low mana - just enough to keep his (used) Sustained spells on. Due to his abilities as a blood mage, this is all he needs.

Weapon & Armor:

My Warden has Vigilance, a longsword custom-made for the Warden by Wade. Choices made in forging were "Flexible and nimble" and "Do what you think is best", leading to a boost to all stats, a further boost to attack, and ice damage.

Vigilance (longsword)

He also wears the Sentinel Armor set, which is classified as "Massive Armor", along with some random shield or another. This allows him to actually utilize Spellweaver as a close combat weapon effectively.

Specializations & Spells:

The Warden has three specializations: Blood Mage, Arcane Warrior, and Battlemage. These all combine to make him incredibly powerful.

Strategy:

Keeps Combat Magic, Shimmering Shield, and Blood Magic on. Opens with Blood Wound, then wades in with sword, shield, and single target / instant AoE spells. Uses Drain Life when low on health, Mind Blast or Hand of Winter when surrounded, and Animate Dead or Bloody Grasp if he feels like trolling (which is often).

Oghren is a former traveling companion of the Warden Commander during the fifth blight. After the Archdemon Urthemiel was slain, the party fragmented and went their own ways. Oghren decided to join the Grey Wardens to try and escape his family life, and now serves at Amaranthine. He's the secondary Melee DPS after the Warden Commander.

Weapon & Armor

My Oghren wields the Dragonstone Cleaver, because I replayed Awakening after beating all the DLC to get the best items.

Dragonbone Cleaver - battleaxe

He also wears the Leigon of the Dead Armor, a massive armor made for dwarves. It provides very good protection.

Legion of the Dead armor set

Specializations & Talents Oghren has three specializations: Berserker, Reaver, and Champion.

Strategy:

Charge in swinging, using whatever talents are needed. I mostly just let Oghren do his thing.

Anders is an escaped Circle mage turned Grey Warden. He gets along well with the Warden Commander due to their shared distaste for the Circle, despite being weary of his superior due to the blood magic he makes free use of. Anders is the healer of the party, bringing numerous support spells to the table and the mana to use them.

Weapon & Armor:

My Anders has Spellfury, a staff that is highly powerful.

Spellfury

He also wears the Vestiments of Urthemiel, a light armor.

Specializations & Spells:

Anders has two specializations: Spirit Healer and Battlemage. These combine to make him the party's healer.

  • Mana Alteration tree: None

Strategy:

Heal the crap out of people. Use Hand of Winter when surrounded. Keep Death Syphon & Flaming Weapons on. Cast Grease and whichever fire spell is off cooldown on large groups no one has targeted. I'd add dispel magical buffs, but the Metallic Arts can't be interrupted so easily.

Justice is a Fade Spirit trapped inside the corpse of a Grey Warden named Kristoff. After being discovered and welcomed back into Vigil's Keep by the Warden Commander, he serves as a loyal companion. The Warden Commander, however, has made mention of a special assignment for Justice. He(?)'s the secondary tank after the Warden Commander.

Weapons and Armor

Justice wields the Daisycutter axe and some random shield. Daisycutter is a one-handed axe with a two-handed model, meaning it is as light as a one-handed axe while having the reach of a two-handed axe.

Daisycutter

He also wears the Hirol's Defense armor, an Massive Armor set that provides good defense.

Justice has three specializations: Spirit Warrior, Guardian, and Champion.

Buff allies as much as possible, draw any enemies not targeting the Warden Commander to himself.

Velana is a Dalish Keeper who turned to banditry after her clan was slaughtered by humans. Recruited by the Warden Commander, she now serves under him in Vigil's Keep. She's the secondary Mage DPS after the Warden Commander.

Weapon & Armor

Velana wields the Staff of the Lost, a staff looted from an Awakened Darkspawn.

Staff of the Lost

She also wears the Skins of the Keeper, a set of robes that augment her abilities; the lack of covering also helps draw enemies in, since her specializations keep her immobile.

Skins of the Keeper

Specializations & Spells:

Velana has two specializations: Keeper and Battlemage. These combine to make her a strong AoE damage dealer.

Sigrun is a former member of the Dwarven Legion of the Dead who joined the Grey Wardens after receiving their help eradicating the Broodmothers of Kal'Hirol. She is a fairly upbeat rogue, and serves as the stealth melee support of the party.

Weapons & Armor

Sigrun dual-wields the Blightblood longsword and the Voice of Velvet dagger. Mostly because they look pretty cool as a pair.

BlightbloodVoice of Velvet

She also wears the Trickster's armor, a set of light leather armor.

Trickster

Specializations & Talents

Sigrun has three specializations: Legionnaire Scout, Shadow, and Assassin. These combine to make her a single-target stealth-focused melee fighter, trading her overall DPS for spike damage.

Strategy:

Run around in Stealth / combat stealth and backstab things. Activate Flicker the instant it's off cooldown and there are enemies to use it on.

Nathanial Howe is the son of Arl Rendon Howe. Given a chance to clear his family's name, he is conscripted into the Grey Wardens to kill Darkspawn. He acts as the ranged support for the party.

Weapons and Armor:

Nathanial wields The Sorrows of Arlathan, a powerful longbow. Once again, I replayed Awakening after finishing Witch Hunt for the good items.

Sorrows of Arlathan

Nathanial also wears the Blackblade armor set. Because nothing else really fit.

Specializations and Talents:

Nathanial has 2 specializations: Assassin and Bard. These allow him to give support to his teammates while trying to remain out of a melee.

Strategy

Keep buffs and debuffs up and shoot people. He doesn't have a very complex job, since I really only bring him along for lockpicking after I kill everything.

The KolossEdit

The Koloss used swords that are sized for their height. Since Koloss grew to be up to 12 feet tall, their swords would measure in length between 3 feet and 6 feet of blade length, depending on the size of the Koloss.

As for their biology:

The koloss are physically very large and very powerful. A full grown koloss could be as tall as twelve feet. A young koloss had as much skin as it would come to have in its later life; because of this, the younger a koloss was, the fatter they looked due to having too much baggy skin covering themselves. When a Koloss reached 12 feet, they would die shortly afterwards. Since they tended to grow very large, their skin tended to stretch and open in cuts after they grew to its limits.

To create a koloss, 4 normal humans were stabbed with individual iron spikes through their heart, and these spikes were then placed strategically on to a fifth person, causing them to becomes a koloss. These Hemalugic spikes could be reused, however, the power of the spikes decreases with re-use. The Koloss themselves knew the proper placement of the spikes, so they were able to reproduce after a fashion.

The spikes themselves leave the Koloss vulnerable to emotional Allomancy, though one has to be incredibly strong to be able to control them without the aid of Duralumin.


Thanks to The Coppermind at 17th Shard for most of the info.

After the death of the Lord Ruler, the Steel Inquisitors under Ruin took control of large numbers of Koloss. If their inquisitor was killed, the Koloss under its command tended to turn on one another in addition to their enemies. Since they were well aware of this, the Steel Inquisitors were modified with extra spikes to give them more powers, turning them into the best combatants on Scadrial. Each Inquisitor brings an obsidian-bladed axe, their Hemalurgy/Allomancy/Feruchemy, and a Hemalurgic Spike. If the spike is successfully planted in the flesh of a party member, the Inquisitors (and Ruin, but he's not here) can control them.

350 Koloss

7 Steel Inqusitors

NotesEdit

Only one condition needs to be met for one side to be considered victorious.

The Warden's Party:

  • Kill all Koloss
  • Kill all Steel Inquisitors (automatic win)

Koloss Army:

  • Raze Vigil's Keep
  • Kill all members of the Party

In order for a vote to count as full, it must contain an analysis of the victory conditions and which - if any - the combatants can meet. A paragraph or two with at least 10 relevant sentences can be substituted for a full vote. A paragraph or two with 5 relevant sentences will count as a half vote. All others will not count. A well-reasoned counterargument that is not subject to a well-reasoned rebuttal can reduce a vote by .5

Well, this is the last Siege Breakers battle. Since I'm going to write most of these eventually, please take this survey to let me know which ones you'd like to see; it'll influence the order I write them in.
