Me/Elf/Mage- focus is magic attacks, defense and knight enchanter.
Dorian- focus is fullblown magic attacks and necromancy.
Cassandra- focus is attack, shield and templar.
Iron Bull- focus is fullblown attack and reaver.
I've used this group since i've collected Dorian and Iron Bull. I've used Cassandra since the beginning. Part of me wishes that i had used Solas instead of Dorian, because i really would have liked a rift mage in my party instead of a necromancer, but i just really liked dorian from the moment i met him, and i just never enjoyed solas.
out of all the characters, iron bull is probably my favorite. he's an absolute stud. the way i have my party set up, works out pretty well for me. i'm sure there's better out there, but i like having two mages standing back (although, now that my character is a knight enchanter, i don't stand back nearly as often as i used too, especially epic battles. rifts and such, i usually stand back.) and two warriors wreaking havoc, while i cast barrier, dispel, etc. when needed.
It's funny how i beat the hildenbrand dragon. i was level 14 at the time, i didn't have my party outfitted with anti-fire armor, i just figured i could wing it. well, after having the dragon down to 1/4 of life, 3 of my party members were dead, and i had one potion left. i decided to run. i ran towards the cove and fell into the water and drowned. once that happened, my entire party was summoned up, all members with half life, and i was able to slay the dragon. pretty cheap, but i'll take it. next time, i'll be better prepared and actually equip armor that makes sense.
as for now, i'm just trying to hit as many rifts as i can, hit some sidequests along the way, and hit the next main mission. i am considering my next dragon slay. storm coast, i'm thinking.
one more thing? has anyone come across any giants? i did at the desert/oasis area. are there more? i slayed him, but if there's more, i'd like to run into them. they seemed easy enough.
