Dragon Age 2 Prologue Walkthrough
The First Story
The prologue is nothing too complicated. The first wave of enemies will allow you to test the different skills of your character, it's a good time to see what skills you'd like to focus on later. You'll be asked to choose if you want to defeat the incoming Darkspawns or let Bethany deal with them. Choose what pleases you, this makes no difference and Bethany will not get killed, don't worry. After fighting the second wave of mobs, an ogre will charge you. Be sure to use your skills when killing the bad guys. If you have difficulty killing the Ogre, try killing the minions first and then focus on the Ogre.
The Real Story
After creating and customizing the hero of your dreams, you'll be attacked by some darkspawns. Deal with them and use your pommel strike if you get in difficulty. Be sure to loot everything that comes your way during all the prologue (and after that too!). Don't forget to level up your characters and you should not have any problem. After rescuing Aveline and her Templar, you'll face a bigger wave of bad guys. Scout ahead or use your mage to kill the archers and taunt the enemies with Aveline so she can fulfill her role of tank.
Yay! Another big ogre to kill! This one is harder but be confident my friend, you can kill it. After all, you're the champion, right? Keep the pressure on the ogre with Avalia while unleashing hell on the minions with Hawke. Try to keep the aggro on one of the two warriors(preferably Avalia) to keep your caster safe. If some bad guys make a run for your mage with the clear intention to kill it, just use your taunt skill to bring the darkspawns back. Note that the strategies that we see in the tutorial are basic concepts in Dragon Age 2 that will be useful during all the game.
