So I picked up Dragon Age Origins a while back to prepare for when Dragon Age II comes out, I've just about beaten the main story mode in Origins, but I made a separate character in Awakening off to the side. Now, I know about the inability to import items from any DLC except Return to Ostagar, and I'm PAINFULLY aware that Starfang doesn't import, which leads me to my question.
A new warrior character created for Awakening has a 2-Hand sword equipped called Warden's Reach, is it possible for an imported character to acquire this weapon? Dragon Age Wiki says, "If a lower-level character is imported from Dragon Age: Origins, he will gain enough experience to reach level 18 and also receive the sword."
However, when I test-imported my level 18 warrior from Origins, he did not have it. Anyone know anything about this?
I don't think so. Also I'd like to make you PAINFULLY aware that both that sword and Starfang are garbage swords and I have no clue why you would care about them when you get much better weapons both in Origins and far superior weapons in Awakening. Is it just about looks?
Oh, I agree that there are vastly superior items in Awakening, I kind of drooled when I saw Ser Alvard's Sword and The Mother's Chosen, but I'm talking about first starting out. I know I didn't replace my initial 2-hander (Warden's Reach) in my first Awakening game until I was rather far into it.
So perhaps my real question is, what 2-hand weapon should my warrior be imported with from Origins?
P.S. - based on general feelings on many Dragon Age forums, I would venture a guess to say that many people would disagree that Starfang is "garbage."
As far as I recall I got some of the warden items when importing my level 25 character. Just to make sure I got some of the items I unequipped everything and when it loads up Awakening it will fully equip your character with armour and weapons.
