Working With Your Keep
At your keep you can build various structures to help you out in the game. For example at the apothecary you can craft various potions to use in the game. Some of the first potions you'll want are one to restore your health so you can fight more encounters. In the infirmary you can craft kits to help you allies. To do any crafting you'll need a worker so construct a worker room and add on a spare keep room if you need the space. An alchemy lab gives you the option to craft bombs to throw at your enemies which are very useful in the game. A storehouse becomes useful when you have a lot of items collected from playing that you want to store and use later.
In the game store you can get special items called "perks" which can help you gain experience faster or revive your hero to full health. Weapons, armor, jewelry, and potions can be found in the game store too. Many of these items you'll loot during game play so in the beginning you won't need to make too many purchases.
Enjoy this stripped down version of Dragon Age. The game can't compete with the console versions but it's still fun to play for a Facebook game. As the game progresses there should be more items and hopefully new areas to explore.
