Dragon Age Inquisition Power Farming Guide – How to Earn Power Quickly

By   /   Nov 25, 2014

Both nobilities and commoners will not acknowledge your newly acquired power – not until they get a taste of it. Power and Influence are two key concepts in Dragon Age: Inquisition, but this guide is solely dedicated to Power and how to earn it!

Power is required to unlock new areas and consequently, side-quests and main-quests. Therefore, having a high Power Level is extremely important. Generally, Power is acquired by closing Fade Rifts, completing side-quests, and main-quests.
