Along with the release of Dragon Age Origins for the XBOX 360, PlayStation 3, and PC, two download packs were also made available for everyone looking for more adventure within the game. The game is already huge, but if you’re looking for more, there are two of them; The Stone Warden & the Warden’s Keep.
Picking up a new copy of Dragon Age Origins will give you access to the Stone Warden DLC for free while you have to pay for $6.99 for Warden’s Keep. Is it worth the seven bucks?
Let’s find out in our HOTs and NOTs section:
Increase your storage
Upon completing the Warden’s Keep, you get to take Soldier’s Peak. Levi and his brother Mikhael will build their own shop that you can visit any time you want. It will also have a party chest where you store a lot of the loots you get since the party’s inventory is limited.
Unlock Trophies / Achievements
Each downloadable pack gives out two achievements and trophies. They are not hard to unlock at all and can be unlocked by just finishing it. One achievement can be achieved by drinking the Potion before reaching the top, while the other can be unlocked by finishing the quest.
The equipment you get in the DLC are indeed rare but they are not weapons that you will have equipped for a long. Most of the equipment you get will be coming from the Warden’s keepers. Remember to kill Sophia if you want to get her equipment.
Warden’s Keep can be finished in an hour. The Soldier’s Peak tower is only three stories high, but expect some bloody action. There are four archives that you need to check out to get more rare equips.
Plot is lame
Warden’s Keep follows the story of the group of Gray Wardens that were stationed in Soldier’s Peak centuries ago. You and your companions meet a Merchant named Levi, who is the great great grandson of the renowned Commander Sophia that used to live in the Soldier’s Peak. Levi wants to check the place out, and that’s the start of your short and dull journey. There is nothing exciting in the plot of this one.
The only good thing about Warden’s Keep is that it will give you more storage. This one should’ve been included in the main game, but knowing EA, they probably want to make an easy $7 on this. The only thing that you are paying for is the storage that you get and the two achievement and trophies that you can unlock. If those two sound good to you, go ahead and purchase it. If not, stay away and keep your $7 for other DLC.
