Dragon Age: Origins - romance and recruitment guide


How to recruit: While traveling the World Map, Zevran’s team will eventually ambush you. After you defeat Zevran, choose to spare his life and he’ll join your party. It may ruffle the feathers of a few in your crew, but it sure beats killing off one of the better rogues at your disposal. Plus, Zevran swings both ways, so he’ll sleep with you whether you’re a male or female character.

In terms of romancing, Zavran’s pretty easy. Just be the seductress or seducer you know you are, and pepper him with gifts like Gold Bars whenever you find them. In particular, he likes the Antivan Leather Boots, found in the Iron Chest in the Village of Haven, and the Dalish Gloves, found in a chest in West Brecilian Forest. Talking to Zevran about his past will unlock the Assassin specialization, too.

You won’t need too high an approval rating to ultimately get with Zevran, and he won’t tie you down after your romance with all that lovey-dovey stuff, either.

    Leliana's pretty creepy, she wants to keep your eyelashes in a jar x]

    Uhh, it's spelled ZevraN, not ZevraM. Otherwise, great guide. I've stopped playing DA for a while because I just got tired of it, but I suppose I'll come back and play it until ME2 comes out.

    Hell yeah I'd want to sleep with Wynne; maybe it's because all female characters have the same body type, but that Gmilf has the figure of a much younger woman. Maybe in the expansion...

    Soooo Exactly how good is Dragon Age ?
  • Persona - January 7, 2010 6:02 a.m.

    heh, this probably would one of the things Dragon Age should be advertised for. YOU CAN HAS SECKS ABOUT 4 TIMES IN ONE PLAYTHROUGH! Thankfully less then in those TV dramas of today. IF YOU DON'T HAVE THIS GAME GET IT COS IT'S BETTER THAN SECKS. Oh wait.

    I really love the last page, and how the dog is the first thing that gets knocked off the list. Its as if the writer wanted to get that out of the way so readers know it is (thankfully) not possible.
