Dragon Age 2 crafting collectibles guide

Bioware doesn’t mess around when it comes to collectibles. Even if the world of Dragon Age 2 feels smaller than that of its prequel, there’s still plenty of stuff to find, ensuring you’ll be wandering the wilderness long into the night.Thank the Maker for shimmering loot.

In Dragon Age 2 there are three different kinds of items to craft: potions, runes, and poisons/grenades. In order to make these items, you’ll need to track down the proper ingredients/resources. Once you find a resource, it can be used by crafters an infinite number of times. However, some recipes call for multiple varieties of an ingredient, so you’ll still have to find several of each Elfroot, Deep Mushroom, etc. Yeah we know, it doesn’t make a whole lot of sense, but you’ll just have to accept the system if you want your achievements/trophies.

Most of these collectibles are only available in certain acts, and some only during certain quests, so make sure to collect everything you can before progressing. Refer to the mini map in the corner of each screen for further help.

    Lol, its a good enough guide, it tells you tha location and even shows tha mini map for easy locations... But it isnt very organised! XD an idea would be to list a location then whats there. I.E. "Sundermount" then Elfrootx6, Silveritex1, Deep Mushroomx1. Then show location pics. I missed a few things like the Silverite in the Tal-Vashoth caverns during the Blackpowder Quest. Worse, when you complete it tha cave is inecessable so now im out a silverite... Lol, im trying to put togather a guid, maby notes the site could use?

    I'm sorry but how is this a guide? All of these ingredients and the total amounts collectable are listed in as soon as you try to craft something in act 1. We need the LOCATIONS for it to be guide surely?

    I don't get it. Several days are spent making guides for this game. Yet the review was a staggering 1 page long. I know there's an entire shit-hurricane surrounding this game, so I'm inclined to think that whoever reviewed DA2 just posted a small one to avoid attention. I don't know. I shouldn't really be caring seeing as I have no interest in the game. Thus everything I typed is rendered null. First?
