Well, I've personally found that in most cases a 50 increase in friendship is a bonus...never used the pranks, however.

Sten's gift can be useful in battle if your using him but that's the only real advantage outside the approval manipulation and novelty value.

Actually, you can use one of the pranks on Dog for a -50 Approval Penalty and increase it with the bones or Feastday Gift to 100 and actually get a approval bonus from him/her which was previously impossible before the release of Feastday Gifts/Pranks.

Yeah, Sten's feastday gift has proven useful to me, too. And the approval for dog seems to work with just the gift, even though his approval is already 100% - I gave him the stick and got the stat bonuses all at once.

The Butterfly Sword is the best weapon for Sten, imo. It's bright and colorful, like his soul. Also, I'm pretty sure Sten secretly loves butterflies. Yes. I have been drinking.

The only other use I"ve seen is to lower Leliana's approval if raised too high, too fast. Zevran's feastday gift is quite fun, too, and adds a nice little bonus.

I use them for max Approval. You can also get unlimited amounts of the Gifts/Pranks with a bug with the Chest in Soldier's Peak, so you could give em all pranks and then gifts to bring it up. Its a novelty thing anyways.
