Isabella?

My friend told me he got her at the Hanged Man before the expedition. He said when he walked in she was just there and a cutscene started. I have done every quest in the game until now and I haven't seen her. I am done with the Deep Roads expedition if that matters.

To my knowledge you can get her before or after the Deep Roads I believe you have to keep up with your mail. She should be in the Hanging Man at night. I've gotten her to join the party before the Deep Roads. I think if you check your Journal she comes up as a companion quest.

I'm a mage. Do you think that has anything to do with it?

Same deal, but you're a little further than me. I want her really badly on this playthrough. I will have no use for her on my next because I'll be a rogue

That seems a little complex to do that it shouldn't matter I explored everything out and I mean everything on Act 1 and so I undoubtedly think it's not all the same. Unless your Sister is not a mage herself, then I'd say there is a discrepancy between what class you chose

As a mage your sister dies and Carter is a party member instead.

Hm, perhaps there is a difference I'm a Rouge and my Sister becomes a party member and your brother dies

Either way I think it's stupid to have a missable character.

Have you explored every possibility I mean it's not so much miss-able as it is a negligible thing

I do every quest before advancing the story.

Did you read your mail and check it off and complete rumors I did everything Rumors, Companion, Main, Secondary, and wft else was there in the first act. I don't think you did something exactly, but that is to be unconfirmed

Well there is always the broken rose or whatever its called but I only got propositioned by a dude, no womens [no disrespect intended to anyone if that's what your into; its just not for me]. As for Topic I got her as a Mage not sure how I just got a cut scene when I entered the bar. I too try to do all side quests first. Then I never know what the hell is going on in the main story because my short term memory is...wait, what was I talking about?

To me it seems that the game randomly decides; I've made two characters and with my Warrior I got her after the deep roads and with my Rogue I got her before the deep roads. My sister doesn't even have her yet and she's way past the deep roads.

I just went back to my save right before Bartrands Expedition and it happened which means I have to either A play all the way to act 3 again with her in tow or B start another play through(because I have to do Mage Hunter anyway) because one of the resources for the achievement is only available from one of her quests . Still its odd that some people could get her in Act 2 because I went to my save file at that start of act 2 and no dice.

I've got a minor issue which I'm hoping isn't a game restarter...

I've found Isabella, initiated her quest and fought my way to the Chantry.. But now the Chantry doors won't open. I've moved around all different angles, changed the number of party members I have, searched the area for any other enemies to kill and nothing. I've even loaded an earlier save (only about 20mins prior) and not even that changed it.

She's just stood by the door waiting for me to open it.

Anyone else had this issue? Please don't tell me it requires a re-start.

I have the strategy guide for the game.
It is VERY specific. If you do NOT go into the Hanged Man ((after)) the Main Quest "Tranquility" and ((before)) the Deep Roads quest in Act 1, you forfeit EVER being able to get her. She's lost for good and won't appear.
If you've done the Deep Roads expedition already and you didn't see her in the Hanged Man, you can't get her unless you start over.

So basically you HAVE to go to the Hanged man after doing Tranquility but before you do the deep roads to get Isabella.

None of the characters from DA:O look like they did. Isabela and Anders got new voice actors too. I find that more annoying. At least keep the voice the same.

I kept checking the Hanged Man during Act I. She didn't show up until I did the Tranquil quest and recruited Anders. The guide says go during the day but I went during the night and she was there.

I ran into the same issue. Completed another mission in the daytime and went back, she was still there waiting. I wish there was a way to reset/abandon quests just because of this.

Edit: Seems that if you kill the leader last and pick up the letter too fast your SOL. Reload an older save or autosave and don't pick up the letter until she mentions it. I guess I'm SOL.
