    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?
