Aqua Magus gives +5 to all

Nereme 6 years ago

Actually it gives +7 to Ohgren so it seems better to give it to him.

Whoops, forgot Oghren! Added him now, and the Aqua Magus. Thanks Nereme :).

Nereme 6 years ago

np glad to help thanks for making the list in the first place.

It also seems that any form of alcohol works for Ohgren same as the origins gifts anyway so if you find alcohol and don't have a clue who to give it to Ohgren is a safe bet haha.

Thank you Moros! Added :).

Eric 6 years ago

Oghren likes the toy chariot as well. It's a plot gift. It's from when he's drunk and asks for a pony.

Nereme 6 years ago

Did anyone else get +100 when giving justice the Kristoff's locket?

Jules 6 years ago

I haven't found him yet but when Sigrun joined the Grey Warden she got already 100.

Jules 6 years ago

Added the Toy Chariot, thanks Eric! I have changed comments to not show before I approve them, since some people were posting spoilers, sorry for any inconvenience, but it's for the best!

PS. Hm, are you sure about the Toy Chariot Eric? I'm pretty sure Toy Chariot is a plot gift for Sigrun, and Toy Horse a plot gift for Oghren?

Jules 6 years ago

I remember the Toy Pony is for Oghren so I think Nemdam is right

Jules 6 years ago

u can also add West Hill Brand to Oghrens gifts

Thanks Jules :)

Lumen 6 years ago

I got +100 from giving Sigrun the potted plant. Seems like a bug to me :)

Lorianne 6 years ago

where can you find the kitten for Anders?

jamie 6 years ago

in the area left of the world map at the keep

yuli 6 years ago

there is no player-initialized talks with your companions in awakening?

Joe 6 years ago

No, there's really no direct interactions between your characters and party members at all. All converstions are initiated through either gifts or interactions with objects around them, except talking to them as part of their quest. No relationships in this one either.

klake 6 years ago

I've had the opportunity to sweet talk anders, seemed to be leading to something... are you sure there are no relationships in this one? thanks for the posts on gifts, happy to finally off-load some of those.

Brock 6 years ago

You can talk to them at the keep, until you run out of dialogue. I Love clicking on the keg of beer behind Oghren :D

connor 6 years ago

gift for justice its Lyrium:The Voice Of The Maker

Luna 4 years ago

I would think the Toy Chariot goes to Oghren because of the toy horse...
