Dragon Age: Origins Romancing Guide

I've been seeing a bunch of posts asking questions about how to do this and since my entire gameplay has pretty much revolved around this I decided to make a guide for anyone who is having trouble.

Frequently Asked Questions

Q. How do I find out my character's affection %?
A. In the main menu choose which character you want with http://www.xbox360achievements.org/forum/../images/misc/lb.png or http://www.xbox360achievements.org/forum/../images/misc/rb.png and there will be an affection bar below them which will range between a dark red(dislikes) to a warm yellow(likes).



Q. Do my characters have to have a 100% affection to get them to sleep with me?
A. No. but for Alistair and Leliana will need to be around 90% (the last block on the affection bar)


Q. What are the possible characters I can have a romance with?
A.
Alistair (as a female only)
Morrigan (as a male only)
Leliana (as a male or female)
Zevran (as a male or female)

There are also various npcs you can have brief romances with which will earn you rewards.These Do Not count toward the Hopelessly Romantic achievement. However be cautious about who is in your party at the time because you may or may not be able to romance an npc if a jealous girlfriend/boyfriend is watching.


Q. How do I earn affection points with my characters?
A. By initiating conversations with them and sticking with their ethical code, siding with them in various quests, giving them gifts, doing their side quest.


Q. Do I have to finish the character's personal side quest in order to get them to sleep with me?
A. No. But there may be an exception with Leliana, I have currently done 4 playthroughs and have had to do her personal side quest each time simply due to the lack of dialog. Theoretically you may be able to if you give her enough gifts after exhausting every possible dialog option.


Q. I romanced (character A) and now I cant get (character B) to sleep with me. (Character B) is at 100% affection, what do I do?
A. This is a bit tricky. for the most part you want to end things with (character A) but be as vague as possible to keep them wanting you.

Example: "I'm sorry, I didnt mean to hurt either of you"

Never pick the option that will completely end things or you might miss out on possible rewards.


Q. Is it possible to have romances with all 4 main characters in 1 playthrough?
A. Yes and No. You can definitely get 3 with the exception of Alistair or Morrigan depending on if you are a male or female. It is possible however to initiate a foursome if you have high affection with each character, have been romantically involved with at least one of them and make sure they arent jealous. It is pretty difficult to pull off and will not count towards the romance achievements. So you will want to start a new playthrough to get the last person you need for the Hopelessly Romantic achievement.


Q. When is the soonest I can start a romance with a character?
A. As soon as you leave Lothering when you enter your party camp. Essentially you can romance Morrigan, Alistair, and Leliana at this point. Zevran is recruited after your next mission so you'll have to romance him a little later.


Q. How do I give a gift to a character?
A. Go to the main menu, use http://www.xbox360achievements.org/forum/../images/misc/lt.pngor http://www.xbox360achievements.org/forum/../images/misc/rt.png to get to the equip/item page, choose the character you wish to give the gift to with http://www.xbox360achievements.org/forum/../images/misc/lb.png or http://www.xbox360achievements.org/forum/../images/misc/rb.png then click on the gift and press http://www.xbox360achievements.org/forum/../images/misc/a.png to give the gift to them.


Q. My character is out of dialog options, what do I do?
A. Simply exit your party camp then re-enter and you should get new dialog. If that doesn't work try giving them more gifts.


Q. If I romance one character then load up another save will it still count towards the Hopelessly Romantic achievement?
A. Yes. The achievement spans through multiple playthroughs, so onces its unlocked it will forever count towards the 4 romances for the achievement.


Q. Where do I have to be to start a romance?
A. You can be anywhere to get their affection up, but you must be in the party camp to have a romance with them.


Character Interactions

To get most of your affection points you will need to initiate conversations with your characters. You will earn more points if you agree with their views on the topic and simply showing that you care.


Character Bios

Morrigan: Morrigan is into bad boys and flings, she will not sleep with you if your affection rating is over 90% so its best to romance her first. You should be able to sleep with her around 80%. Keep her affection rating below 90% to avoid her making you choose between her and the other man/woman.

Conversation Tips: Talk about Flemith, her childhood, the good of her magic, sex, be a tease and a bit of an ass, she likes it when you take charge and likes the fairness in evil things so keep that in mind when talking with her.

Gifts She Likes: Gold, Silver, Grimoires


Leliana: Leliana wants to be in love so your going to have to try to be the typical BFF to her to get her to fall in love with you. You will need to get her affection rating to around 90-95% to get her to sleep with you. Typically you will want to save her for last unless all you have left is a same sex romance.

Conversation Tips: Talk about her past, the chantry, her future, always side with her and suck up ie."Omg I totally love shoes!!" flirting is good but be respectful, she only likes nice guys/girls.

Gifts She Likes: Amulets, anything to do with Andraste, shoes, Sword of Mercy


Alistair: Alistair loves to tell stupid jokes and keeps his emotions hidden. Overall, like Leliana, he wants to be in love, meaning you will need to get his affection rating up to around 90-95%. You will get the option to sleep with him much earlier, around 70% but he will refuse and give you a -3ish% until he falls in love with you.

Conversation Tips: Always humor him, His jokes may be stupid or off topic but he loves it when you play along. Avoid talking about Duncan if you can, but when the subject comes up be respectful and understanding. Other than that talk about his life as a templar, and his past. When the topic of sex comes up around 90% be forceful.

Gifts He Likes: Duncan's Shield, Statuettes, Amulets, Runes


Zevran: Zevran is an oddball, He will sleep with you around 60% He, like Morrigan doesn't mind flings so doing him early on is good. Overall he doesn't have much of a preference in terms of types of women/men he likes and will do you almost instantly and usually gives a substantial amount of affection points for minor dialog.

Conversation Tips: Agree with him on anything, and he loves talking about sex and leather >.>

Gifts He Likes: Gold Bars, Leather Boots, Gloves


Tips



If Morrigan gives you an ultimatum choose to be with her and she will tell you to break it off with the other person but will not in fact end things with the other person.




If you want to get all the love affection items ie. rings etc. Accept the item and then be an ass to get a - rating and the item. Also to get multiple items simple sell the ring/item or equip it to another character and you will eventually get the gift dialog again.




Max out your Persuasive skill, this will help you a lot if you ever get accused of cheating. This will also help if your going for a threesome or foursome. :woop:




Always Save your game before you enter in on any conversation so you can get the desired amount of approval rating with your character.




Gifts will decrease in affection points after awhile so make sure you give your character the highest rating items first. For mor information of gifts go to http://dragonage.wikia.com/wiki/Gifts

Personal Side Quest Guide

Each character has their own personal side quest once you reach a certain affection level, around 75%. And Once the quest is complete you should net about 15+ affection points. You are not required to complete these quests in order to sleep with your characters, the only exception may be Leliana.


Morrigan: You get this after you complete the Circle of Magi Tower Mission. In your party camp talk to her and she will ask you to retrieve a Black Grimoire from a chest in the 2nd floor of the tower, you will probably have this already so trade it to her to finish the quest.

Part 2: Morrigan will eventually ask you to seek out Flemmeth's Grimoire and ask you to kill her mother. Whether or not you decide to kill her is up to you, once you return with the book you'll finish the quest.

Part 3: Travel to Orzammar Commons and buy a Golden Mirror from Garin he is near the Diamond Quarter. Trade the Golden Mirror to Morrigan.


Leliana: You will get a cutscene by entering your party camp and she will talk about her past as a bard. Next travel to any area, (Denerim if you want to do the whole quest right away) and you will be ambushed by assassins, defeat them and you will be pointed to Denerim. Go to the market and hug the right side till you get to Leliana's assassin contact's house. You will have to defeat 2 guards then talk to Marjolaine and you'll have the option to kill her or let her go, either option works but if you decide to kill her be prepared for a tough fight. Afterwards return to your party camp and talk to her, then leave and talk to her once more and you should be able to sleep with her.

Part 2: Trade Leliana Andraste's Grace, which can be found in Redcliffe Villiage near the windmill, the Brecilian Forest north of the main path, or in the Elven Alianage.

Part 3: Travel to Ozammar with Leliana in your party and head to Dust Town. There talk to her and she will mention that she would like a pet Nug. Talk to the Idle Dwarf and ask him to catch one for you then exit and re-enter to get it then trade it to Leliana.


Alistair: Put Alistair in your party and head to Denerim and eventually he will ask you to find his sister, find her in the markets to complete his quest.

Part 2: While in Redcliffe, make sure to pick up Alistair’s Mother’s Amulet from the desk in Castle Redcliffe and give it to him, it can be found on the main floor.

Part 3: In Denerim, go to the Warehouse and check the armor stand to get Duncan's Shield and give it to Alistair.

Zevran: Trade him Antivian Leather Boots which can be found in a chest in the Haven villiage store.

Part 2: Trade Zevran Dalish Gloves from a chest in the West Brazilian Forest.

How To Engage in a Threeway/Fourway

So far this seems to be the only way I have been able to initiate a threesome. This will not unlock the Thrill Of Romance and Hopelessly Romantic achievements but is still worth watching :D

*Thanks goes to Mancerelectro for confirming this*

How to Start

First you need max persuasive skill and high affection with each character you are trying to romance with and put them in your party. Then go to Denerim and enter the Pearl. Speak to Isabela and flirt with her, when she asks you to play a game with her use the persuade option instead. This should trigger your characters to speak out. convince them to join and you'll have your threeway/fourway :woop:


Note: As far as I know this particular option will only work so long as you have never talked to Isabela before in your current game.


Here is a video moarinternets posted on youtube to show how its done.

YouTube- Dragon Age: Origins - Isabela Threesome with Alistair


Some Fun Facts About NPC Romances

While not totally related, they do add to much of the humor in the game. Some NPCs will reward you with various goodies if you choose to romance them. Also this is a great way to get your persuasive points up for the Silver Tongue achievement.

Use this as an alternative to "breaking up" with one of your main characters so that you can move on to the next to get another Thrill of Romance achievement. If you bring along one of your characters and they see you smooching another girl you'll definitely get a -10-20% with them. The good side however is that they will never confront you with that and they will lose any grudge they had for your other romances for the time being.


Currently Known NPCs You Can Romance With

Isabela - Denerim, Pearl
Gheyna - Brecilian Forest, Dalish Camp
Kaitlyn - Redcliffe Villiage, Chantry
Bella - Redcliffe Villiage, Tavern
Guard - Fort Drakon, Prison Cell
Anora - Arl Eamon's Estate, Her Room
Desire Demon - Redcliffe Castle/Fade
*Note: the Desire Demon will not effect your party members negatively*

Q. Is it possible to have romances with all 4 main characters in 1 playthrough?
A. Yes and No. You can definitely get 3 with the exception of Alistair or Morrigan depending on if you are a male or female. It is possible however to initiate a foursome if you have high affection with each character, have been romantically involved with at least one of them and make sure they arent jealous. It is pretty difficult to pull off so you may want to just start a new playthrough to get the last person you need.

I'm currently still working on finding out all the obtainable items, so far I know you can get a ring from Morrigan that has +2 willpower, once I find out the rest I'll add it to the guide

Alright, I've been experimenting with breaking up with certain characters in order to receive the other gifts. Can anyone confirm if ending things with certain characters will effect the outcome later on in the story?

Also are you able to get back together with characters you break up with? I've been trying certain dialogs but if anyone else has tested this out that would be great.

I can confirm that you indeed can NOT get hopeless romantic through a 3 or 4 way with Isabella. I just tried, had Zev in my party, and I did not unlock his romance achievement. So this game does require you to make at least one guy character and 1 girl character to follow all possible romances. Yes, I did choose to allow Zev to join us. I do suggest doing this at least once, the end dialog is hilarious. :P

you might want to note that Zevran *SPOILER* can turn on you during the game *END SPOILER* (sorry, don't know how to use the hide spoilers thingy!). Annoyingly I hadn't been able to romance him before this point, so will have to get him on another play though.

Turn on you how exactly? If its by certain dialog options I'm pretty sure everyone in your party has the potential to leave or turn on you depending on the choices you make.

did you just give her gifts? you need to go through all of her dialog except telling her to leave, then exit and re-enter the camp to get her to talk about her mentor

I didn't do a lot of dialogue for her and it let me do the mentor thing.

I didn't do the Orlesian spies one, the one with stars, or the one where she sings to me. We weren't even romancing and I thought I messed up the romance line somewhere.

After she talks to you about once being a spy travel to a random area and you should get ambushed by spies, afterwards head to Denerim.

I never had Leliana sing to me either as far as I know and have done all her quests

morrigan is an easy lover imo
zevran is also a easy lover (well when I was a dude he was,now that i'm a lady he dont try to flirt with me,gaylord)
Alistair is pretty easy if you make jokes with himand give him gifts.
leliana was the hardest imo

i did everything pertaining to her dialog and gave her every gift i could and didnt see anything about a spy mission and ive been in and out of the camp many tmes now. I slept with morrigan and zavren and dont remember getting jumped by anyone in a road fight. so i think on my final playthrough i will get the alistair and leliana achievements. curious tho about the all playthrough achievements. seeing as i cant do anything else in my 1st playthrough except get the all endings achievement from which i read a post on the forum already that you need to save before the landsmeet then redo the game 3 more times inorder to unlock that achievement, so is that correct and then also how does the all romance achievement pop if you start a new game. cuz im gonna start a new game with a different player so will i then get 3 achievements, 1 seperate being the alistair romance one and 2 when i sleep with leliana the which would also supposedly unlock the hopelessly romantic achievement which is the "across all playthroughs, expierenced all possible romances". so am i correct about how this workd even if i start a new game

To Raging Valkyire:
Your romances will count towards all playthroughs so you could technically do 4 playthroughs having had 1 romance per playthrough and still get the achievement.

Another thing, Leliana gets incredibly jealous, so if you haven't been using her or been with the other 2 more then shes not gonna care much for you lol

To Tiouz:
Try giving Zevran his leather boots, you'll get like a +17 out of him lol And always hint about sex when your chatting him up, he loves that @.@

my party always consisted of leliana wynne and shale and i only used morrigan in the beginning until i got wynne, so yea shes been with me from the beginning. i guess on my next playthrough ill just do it instead of killin myself and tryin on the playthrough im on now. thanx tho 4 the tips

SupremeRapier
11-14-2009, 10:03 PM
Heres what I've done, and its worked for me through all 6 of my playthroughs, first finish everything in Lothering, then go to the camp, and chat up Morrigan and give her 1-4 gifts depending on how well you answered her questions then you should be able to sleep with her right there.

After that chat up Leliana and pretty much give her the rest of your gifts then leave camp and head to Denerim and scavenge for gifts and give them to her, then go to the docks and on the way you should get ambushed by the traveling dwarf who sells 3 more gifts, pick up the gift at the dock, then the one from the quartermaster in the circle of magi tower. Then head back to camp and you should get her personal quest, do that then come back and talk to her, convince her that she did the right thing and that she should be herself, then exit and head to some random place just to "zone" and then go back to camp and talk to her. If she still wont sleep with you by then then give her any extra gifts and you should have her.

Finally, Beat the Tower of Magi mission and travel someplace, (Denerim seems to be the safest) and you should get ambushed by Zevran, recruit him then go straight to camp, chat him up, you should be getting +13s-+17s with him, flirt with him constantly and you should be able to sleep with him within 15 minutes lol

As far as Alistair goes, I've only slept with him once on my female character and I pretty much just used the same strategy that I used with Leliana.

It seems like if you can romance all 3 of them all around the same time that none of them will get jealous until later on in the game. So for those having trouble this is probably the reason since the game makes anyone who has high affection with you fall in love with you. Like you'll never hear Leliana or Morrigan say that they love you if you do them right after Lothering, but after Ozammar they bring it up all the time and nothing would have changed much affectionwise.

Nice guide, but im still having issues! I've completed all of the other characters, and now im stuck on Leliana and i dont understand why the romance option isn't coming up?

I am 100% with here, as my bar is in the bright white.
I completed both her quests, we let her mentor live, and i also got her a pet nug!
I've even gotten as far to a cinematic of her singing her song. After all that, when i talk to her after continuously returning to the campsite are her stories.
The point im currently at in the story is when you first at the dwarf city! I've completed all the other recruiting missions.

Hopefully you guys can help me out, and hopefully i wont have to start a new playthrough! Since this is my fourth :P

did you ever "end it" with her in order to get with someone else? because depending which option you chose could void having a romance with her

did you ever "end it" with her in order to get with someone else? because depending which option you chose could void having a romance with her

I thought this might of been the problem on an earlier playthrough, so i made sure on this playthrough i was in no other releationship, or even got into one. I only focused on Liliana. Its strange why it isn't working and i have no idea why!

Edit: I Figured it out, finally! In order to get into a romance with Leliana you must reply to one her conversation correctly. This conversation can be aquired at about 50% + and once you have accomplished that, you must get her up to 100% in order to bed her. When she offers to bed you, if you miss that oppourtunity you cannot get it again. Also, if you miss the conversation to romance her by incorrectly replying properly you have forfit the chance to bed her I believe.

SPOILER AHOY!





Worth throwing out there: There's a plot-driven time you can sleep with Morrigan, and that does NOT count toward the romance achievement. I took the option hoping for the achievement even though it didn't fit my character from a roleplaying perspective, and was bummed when it didn't unlock.

No idea what I did correctly, but I managed to get a romance with Morrigan the very first time I went to party camp, immediately after Lothering. I guess I chose every correct dialog option and gave her the right gifts..?

For the Leliana quest is there a difference in the affectionpoints you receive for either killing her former master or letting her live?
I let her live and only got +6 affection in the camp for it. I have a save one second before entering the room so I can go back if this grants me more points, but it really is a tough fight in such a cramped space with only one meleefighter in your party.
Only bad thing will be then that I have to go through all of that jealous behavior of her once again :(

OK, I'm right at the end of the game, have a save just before the rooftop with the Archdemon, a Save in Redcliffe and A save right before the landsmeet. I had Alistair all luvvied up to get him to sacrifice himself, but now I want to drop that so I can sacrifice myself. Will itbe enough to just end the relationship with him, or do I need to drop his affection level down as well? If I have to drop his affection down too, does anyoe know of an sure fire ways to get it to work? Right before the landsmeet, I've tried splitting up with him, and that doesn't lower his affection for some reason, and I have no quests or anything left to do, so noone to offend or anything to make him dislike me. Any ideas at all?

I Figured it out, finally! In order to get into a romance with Leliana you must reply to one her conversation correctly. This conversation can be aquired at about 50% + and once you have accomplished that, you must get her up to 100% in order to bed her. When she offers to bed you, if you miss that oppourtunity you cannot get it again. Also, if you miss the conversation to romance her by incorrectly replying properly you have forfit the chance to bed her I believe.

Can anyone else confirm that replying to one of her conversations incorrectly ruins the possibility of romancing her even if you havent slept with anyone else and get her up to 100%

well yeah, if you tell her to leave that will ruin it lol, if your mean to her that will too, if she notices that you've been talking with someone else a lot and you answer wrong she wont want to be with you, so it all depends on how you treat her really.

If I remember right, she doesnt actually call them nugs, just something like "cute little pink pig things" or something like that lol and she doesnt actually ask you to buy one just says that she'd like to have one someday, so my advice is to try talking to the dwarf who sells you one just to see if he will and if not then double check to make sure you did her other quests.

Ask her about her mother and living in the forest. Play a bad dude, she likes that. Don't ever ask her why she's still with you and when she's about 70 -75% do the Mages quest and get the book. After that she's yours.
And in general: save before every conversation!

You need to initiate that convo with her. Have her in your party, and when in Orzammar, talk to her. I'm not sure if it matters what point or not, but on each of my playthroughs, that's how I went about it.

She starts off by saying about how grand Orzammar is and then say something like "oh and did you see those adorable little bunny pigs" or something along those lines.. after that, you can go straight to the idle dwarf in dusttown, ask him about one, tell him u want one for a pet, and so on.... leave dusttown, go back and he should be there waiting with it, don't actually stand there... go back to orzammar commons and then back into dust town.

I've started a new game purely to romance Morrigan.

What would be the fastest way to do this?


The fastest way is to ensure you make saves before speaking with her, be a badass... when in lothering, remove her from your party if you plan to have the overpriced bully merchant lower his prices, because she doesn't like that... also have her in your party when you talk to sten, then when you go to release him intimidate the "mother" in the chantry LOL... don't have anyone in your party except for morrigan or you will A LOT of negatives if you plan on finishing this game out after romancing morrigan.

Any gifts you can get, get. Have your dog search around lothering where the spot for mabari dominance is out in the fields by the tree... if he keeps searching he will keep bringing back gifts. Even if it's eaten cake or dirty pantaloons she will like it, as would anyone that early in the game. He should bring back several gifts including a pretty good staff for a mage that early on called "Piece of Wood", that will come in helpful for your mages until you start getting to the high end stuff later in the game.

Once in camp, make a save before speaking with her.... do one line at a time, then wrap up the convo. See how many points you got, if you're not happy.. retry it. Rinse and repeat and as someone else said, don't ask her why she's still with u, there's no good way out of that one and it will result in negative rep. U can romance her right then and there if u do it properly.

I didn't find romance that difficult in this game, you just need to save before going back to camp (in case you are forced into convo) and save before speaking to whomever you're trying to romance. Leliana takes work yes, but I had her romanced on my most recent playthrough before finishing ANY major quests.... including before helping redcliffe, the magi circle, etc.... before all of that. I just spoke with her a lot, gave her what gifts I could, went and bought/found gifts to give her when I had nothing else to talk to her about, then returned and tried talking to her some more. After you ask about her past, and she says she's "revealed too much", leave camp.. go somewhere, then go back to camp, she should auto-initiate a convo with u telling u the truth, then talk to her as much as possible... travel, get ambushed, go and do her sidequest in denerim after.. talk to her again back at camp, if u have nothing left to talk about... leave camp and then return again... u should be able to romance her around then. I have so many andraste gifts that I haven't given her and she's already at 100 on my latest playthrough. Also, make sure not to be in a relationship with anyone at that time, or else if u are and u tell her ur gonna break it off, ull lose some rep with her.

Also, if you do go to redcliffe.. there's an andraste flower to the right of the windmill if you're looking at it's entrance that clearly says "Windmill" when u get close to the door. You wont need to get that far if you play your cards right up until then, but just in case there's a quick good gift to give to her.

First, just want to thank SupremeRapier for an awesome guide.
I almost gave up on Leliana.

As for Morrigan, romance with her was pretty easy.
By the time I left Lotherain, my approval rating with here was at 75%.
i didn't even have to get to the grimoires.

Conversation-wise, I had a headstart with her in Flemeth's Hut, whereby I had thanked her for her help.

in all conversation with her, never judged her and kept an open mind.
And never get sappy either.

After taking out the bandits at the bridge, got big approval points for asking her opinion on what we should do for the mission.

Sided with the greedy merchant in Lotherain over the Chantry Cleric.

Acquired the Golden Rope Necklace from Barlin, and gifted to Morrigan.

Asked about her mother, her childhood and sympathized with her about her incident with the golden mirror.

By the time you leave Lotherain and have the first opportunity to make camp, you should be at 75%.

Then head over directly to Orzammar, acquire the golden mirror from one of the Dwarven merchants, run back to camp.

gift her the mirror, asking nothing in return.

next time you speak with her, she'll invite you to her tent.

Took all of under 3 hours from character creation to that point.

Just wondering though, if you could give more information on what will happen when you choose whether to kill the romancers enemy or let them live.
Mainly because I'm finding the Flemeth and Marjorlaine fights absolutely impossible!!!
Does it affect any of the gameplay by letting them live?

Morrigan is rather easy, do her quest and give her a couple of gifts if needed and you should be able to get her in the same playthrough without any problems.

Thanks to the guide I've managed to have some man on elf loving. I've given Morrigan a dusty book and a mirror she remembers from childhood which I think will get me something when we get back to camp. I also am pretty high up there with Leilana so now i just have to find that Nug.

Okay, I've managed to get Leilana up to 100%, did her personal quest, and got her a pet nug. The only conversation I can talk to her is about being a minstrel. Am I missing something?

edit: Well, looks like my second playthrough will have to be where i try to bed Leilana at the same time as Allister.
I couldn't get Leilana so I decided to bang Morrigan nightly instead. Who can blame me?

right ive just got morrigan done and out of the way and spent the last couple of hours getting lelianas loyalty up, im at 95%, she hasnt kissed me or anything, i still have the original dialouge from the beginning, nothing new.

Ive done the one where you talk to her about her vision and then i left the one about why she was in fereldan because i kept getting +1 and still looking for a way to get slightly more. She hasnt kissed me either, i got the flower and showered he with gifts making sure i leave and re-enter the camp each time to give her a new gift so i wouldnt over shoot it. Any Help?

Also how do i get her the pet nug? when i talk to the guy in dust town the option i have is to just leave

To get the pet Nug, go to Orzammar with Leilana and talk to her. She will comment about how grand Orzammar is and how cute those rabbit ear rodents are. Talk to the idle dwarf, settle on the price and he will go get one for you. Exit Dust Town. Enter Dust Town. Idle Dwarf will give you Nug, I gave him more money so he could buy a warm blanket to sleep in. Give Leilana Nug. Hope she repays with oral favors.

Came here to share my advice for Lilianas personal quest that MAY help you, Natetendo83.

I spent a lot of the game not visiting my personal camp. I then realised that each trip back got me a new quest, from each character (the cutscene at the beginning of your arrival at the camp)

If you've only been once or twice, keep going until you can't get any more quests for your party members. Took me about 3 or 4 goes until I got Liliana's, when I was already very friendly with her and had a high rating (and had already talked about everything).

Hope it helps!

How To Engage in a Threeway/Fourway

So far this seems to be the only way I have been able to initiate a threesome. This will not unlock the Thrill Of Romance and Hopelessly Romantic achievements but is still worth watching :D

*Thanks goes to Mancerelectro for confirming this*

How to Start

First you need max persuasive skill and high affection with each character you are trying to romance with and put them in your party. Then go to Denerim and enter the Pearl. Speak to Isabela and flirt with her, when she asks you to play a game with her use the persuade option instead. This should trigger your characters to speak out. convince them to join and you'll have your threeway/fourway :woop:


Note: As far as I know this particular option will only work so long as you have never talked to Isabela before in your current game.


Here is a video moarinternets posted on youtube to show how its done.

YouTube- Dragon Age: Origins - Isabela Threesome with Alistair (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6Hkf2VM_CvU)


Some Fun Facts About NPC Romances

While not totally related, they do add to much of the humor in the game. Some NPCs will reward you with various goodies if you choose to romance them. Also this is a great way to get your persuasive points up for the Silver Tongue achievement.

Use this as an alternative to "breaking up" with one of your main characters so that you can move on to the next to get another Thrill of Romance achievement. If you bring along one of your characters and they see you smooching another girl you'll definitely get a -10-20% with them. The good side however is that they will never confront you with that and they will lose any grudge they had for your other romances for the time being.


Currently Known NPCs You Can Romance With

Isabela - Denerim, Pearl
Gheyna - Brecilian Forest, Dalish Camp
Kaitlyn - Redcliffe Villiage, Chantry
Bella - Redcliffe Villiage, Tavern
Guard - Fort Drakon, Prison Cell
Anora - Arl Eamon's Estate, Her Room
Desire Demon - Redcliffe Castle/Fade
*Note: the Desire Demon will not effect your party members negatively*

A very good guide overall.

Hardest (and subsequently longest) for me was Alistair. Took loads of conversation topics to win his approval. Managed to sort him out once he hit 90%.

Of note, the option to sleep with him can come up at 70%... wait until 90% otherwise you run the risk of dropping his approval by as much as -20% if you're not careful and try to force it.

As for the lovely Morrigan... I bedded her in camp faster than you can say:

Hey great guide in this thread. Ive been looking everywhere for a good guide to romances.

The issue im having is trying to have both morrigan and leliana romanced at the same time.

It sounds like that is possible from reading the guide and responses here, but im having trouble making it happen.

Ive been playing around with a number of scenarios, but so far its not giving me what i want.

My most recent save that I start with is after i have romanced and slept with morrigan. At this point, Leliana's approval is below 50 slightly because i havent done much talking or giving her any gifts. In the game itself, ive only completed lothering, the circle tower, slate dlc, and warden dlc quests, sitting now in camp.

i had enough gifts to get her approval over 50, then her first jeaousy dialog comes up and i choose to tell her i was with morrigan instead of lieing. then i got her approval up high enough to start the romance dialog with her. I finish that off with a kiss and then try to talk to her again. Now she demands i choose and i choose morrigan. At this point, her approval is still above 50, somewhere between 60-70 id say.

then i leave camp just so that i can head right back into camp and she initiates a dialog about how happy she is for me and morrigan. after that, i see no other dialogs relating to the relationship, so i assume at that point, its cut off.

now i can go to denerim to do her personal quest, and then i went to orzammar just to get the cute nug gift for her along with a couple other gifts. after those two things, i go back to camp. I talk to her about her personal quest, choose to harden her, then give her the gifts i picked up, raising her approval to 100%. But when i try to talk to her again, there is nothing to restart the romance.

So, my idea was that i would need to trigger Leliana's jealousy dialogs, choose morrigan, and then just restart the romance. can that be done? do i need to get her approval down to something after breaking it off in order to restart it? And is there any specific dialog options when breaking it off with her that i must choose in order to restart it?

i did everything pertaining to her dialog and gave her every gift i could and didnt see anything about a spy mission and ive been in and out of the camp many tmes now. I slept with morrigan and zavren and dont remember getting jumped by anyone in a road fight. so i think on my final playthrough i will get the alistair and leliana achievements. curious tho about the all playthrough achievements. seeing as i cant do anything else in my 1st playthrough except get the all endings achievement from which i read a post on the forum already that you need to save before the landsmeet then redo the game 3 more times inorder to unlock that achievement, so is that correct and then also how does the all romance achievement pop if you start a new game. cuz im gonna start a new game with a different player so will i then get 3 achievements, 1 seperate being the alistair romance one and 2 when i sleep with leliana the which would also supposedly unlock the hopelessly romantic achievement which is the "across all playthroughs, expierenced all possible romances". so am i correct about how this workd even if i start a new game
I've been having problems romancing Leliana too. I've read there is a glitch, which is why I've stopped playing the game for awhile. T_T

i have romanced them all, as a male i had leliana and morrigan, and as a female i had allistair and zevran, but i am not getting the hopelessly romantic cheevo pop, do i have to romance leliana and zevran as both male and female to get this to pop or should it have popped after i did the 4th romance, which was zevran, any help would be greatful as i am nearing my final few cheevos for this and dont wanna have just one left, nor do i want to do 4 individual playthroughs just for one cheevo lol

Please help!

Hmmm just checked bioware social site, odd thing is on there it shows all my cheevos apart from bedding leliana which i have def done, will try a new game just to bed her and see whtat happens, let u guys know in about 3-4 hours lol

Leliana is a pain to romance, I think you need to initiate the romance with a certain dialogue.

Leliana is a little difficult to start a relationship with. As a male talk
to her about her time in the cloister in camp and choose the following dialogue
options:

- "I'd like to talk."
- "What was someone like you doing in Lothering?"
- "You know, a beautiful charming woman like yourself."
- "Those initiates can't have been more lovely than you."
- Romance initiated

With an approval rating over 50 as a female character talk to her in camp and
she will say (only once), "I... have I ever told you I really like the way you
wear your hair?" Respond with the following dialogue options:

- "My hair? Thank-you."
- "Dear Maker!"
- "Well we are friends aren't we?"
- "And do you enjoy the company of other women?"
- "I think I might giggle and maybe look coy?"
- Romance initiated

Finish her personal quest with Marjolaine and talk to Leliana. She'll say, "I
know that look -- you have something on your mind don't you?" Respond with the
following dialogue options:

- "We need to talk."
- "Are you feeling better?"
- "Er, I think I see what you mean."
- "She was special to you wasn't she?"
- "I'm sorry it ended to badly."
- "Everyone changes unfortunately."
- "I can only hope to one day be as special as she was to you."
- Romance initiated

To get invited into her tent she must be in love with you, that means an
approval rating of 100. Talk to her in camp and continue being nice to her and
she will invite you in for a one-time event.

I had some problems with Leliana. I had figure out the hard way that she only opens up depending on her likeness. If it stays low for too long you won't make any progress and if you raise it up too quickly you'll run out of dialogue.

On a side note: For whatever reason I imagined Sten watching Leliana and my mage make love. Wouldn't it be hilarious if the camera panned around and at the end Sten is just standing there with a blank stare on his face? Man I'm messed up.

Not sure why everyone's having so much trouble bedding Morrigan. Go here:
http://www.xbox360achievements.org/forum/showthread.php?t=197202

Look at the thread linked under Witch Gone Wild. With a new character entering the party camp for the first time, you can bed Morrigan in about 5 minutes.

Agreed. Leliana was for sure harder cause you had to do A LOT more work to bed her. I bedded Morrigan my second visit to the party camp, siding with her at the Church in Lothering is a good start for her affection bar, travelling with her a lot helps too.

There are many things wrong with the "guide" listed on that Gamefaqs page for Morrigan's romance. Going to camp right after the Wilds being one of them (since you can't do that, no matter what you do), and if you read further, people are mentioning that most of the dialogue options give negative points instead of positives (or are missing more dialogue options, since the conversation goes further than what they mention).

I got her to 100% real quick with the Feastday packs on my last playthrough, only to find I needed her at about 70% (maybe lower) to progress. Had to prank her to lower it. No problem after that though.

I'm having issues with her...does it matter what part of the story you are in? Im at right before the final battle. I got her to 100% gone through all her stories and even have the option to break up with her....but she just wont pull down those panties....my warden is a female too...any ideas?

Did you do her sidequest? For me she didn't give it up til after that. Also, how many gifts did you give her? If you overwhelm her with gifts you'll miss out on dialogue.

I managed to get her right after Lothering. I simply chatted her up until there was no more dialogue. Gave her the small +5 gifts one at a time til new dialogue opened up, then travelled somewhere and back to camp. I did this til I got her mission, and then again til she finally spread'em.

ok I got it...here is how:

If you have her at 100% (if you have the feastday pranks) buy enough coal to get her to about 70%. Then there will be a topic to talk about bards. Go through that dialogue and then travel (I went from denerium to Lothering) You''ll stop half way and fight some assassins. When you take out the leader, he ask you to spare him. Trade info on how to find the person who hired him for his life. Then travel back to denerium and hug the right side of the city. You'll see a door labeled assassins contact location or something like that. Go through that dialog and make sure you back Liliana (it doesn't matter weather you kill the person or not)

After that travel back to camp, and there will be new dialog. Go through that, then get her up to 100%. She'll say something about going to bed, ask if you can join her, then BAM....off come those panties.

*Update

I actually got the achievement for Leliana today when I wasn't even going for it. I was at about 90% w/her and I was in a relationship w/Alistair. Then when I was at camp, she started conversing and starting talking about my relationship w/Alistair. I think I chose something like I didn't meant to hurt Leliana and she understood and got disapproved. Then I went somewhere, came back to camp and when I started talking to her, there was an option of the spies dialogue. Chose that, went off and back to camp and she started talking. That lead to her side quest. When I went to Brecilian forest or something, there was an encounter and they were attempting to murder Leliana, then you go finish her side quest in Denerim.

Like some people mentioned, after completing a main quest, go back to camp, talk to her, rinse and repeat. I've made the mistake of over gifting her. Give the smaller gifts one at a time, leave camp and go talk to her at camp. You will eventually get the dialogue about the bard and spies. You will have the opportunity to bed her then.

I think i am going to have to try this as well as although i am not at a 100% with Leliana i am about 80% but no new dialogue has appeared for ages even though i have in and out of the camp on missions. The last dialogue i got was about the shoes but no personal quest has popped up or no dialogue about being a minstrel/spy. I have only romances Morrigan so far as well.

I certainly think if you pick certain wrong dialogue options with Leliana early on it ruins your chances later.

Romanced Alistair in under 5 mins after getting to camp after Lothering. If you have the feastday gifts, buy him the Grey Warden hand puppet and 5 or 6 thoughtful gifts from the merchant in camp. Costs about 80silver total if I remember correctly. Give him each of those and his approval jumps up to 100 and then just talk with him a few times to seal the deal.

"I know that look--you have something on your mind, don't you?"

Ive done her DLC and her sidequest in game. Ive given her the Nug and she is 100%. I cant get anymore dialog with her except for the one about her stories. Im playing a female character and have romanced Zevran and Alister on this play through as well. What do I do?

Hi, everyone.

Leliana is driving meu crazy! Haha

I've already done her personal quest and also have given her that strange pet.

I've listened carefully every single story she has to tell and the closest I've been from getting the romance was when she mentioned about my existing relashionship with Morrigan.

After that I keep gifting her and I've also dumped Morrigan, but every time I start a conversation with Leliana the options I have are the same: that annoying stories again and again,

Could any one give me some help? I just don't know what to do! This virtual girl is driving me as crazy as real ones.

Thanks in advance!

Helpful hints for those that still need this and wanna knock it out quick. If u have the ultimate edition there this pack called feast day gifts or something but it includes gifts that gives all of ur characters +50 affection and then the others give +10. All u have to do is just go to camp the first time and talk to boghen or what his name is and go to the gifts they should all be free and find out which ones go to whoever and bam easy affection easy hopeless romantic
Note: first play though I only got Leanna and morrigan to finish the deed with me no matter how hard I tried for zevveren he still rejected me..even after his quest and gifts..but don't worry just load up a new game and be a girl and do aliteracy and zevveren easy.:drunk
