So this is my first playthrough of DA2. I figured I need to do it at least once to understand some of the things in DA:I better

That being said, I can't find anything that tells you about what order to do the quests in, etc. I've found tons of walk throughs and the names of all the quests, side quests, Act 1, 2, and 3.. but nothing on chronological order for quests. I also ask because a few times, I've gone on quests where I got slaughtered because Hawke and his team were nowhere near ready.

So... anyone have recommendations on what order to do the quests/companion quests/side quests??

The order in which you do things basically doesn't matter.  Each Act has its own set of main- and side-quests.  The main ones *must* be completed to advance the story but the order is irrelevant or, if it does matter, they'll be presented in the correct order (e.g. the mission isn't even discussed until you've finished any precursors.)  

But...  Once you've moved on to the next Act any remaining open side-quests from the previous Act cannot be completed.  It's pretty clear what the "triggers" are for each Act's finale, so you shouldn't get surprised.

 

Getting slaughtered because you stumbled into something the party wasn't able to handle is... "a learning experience!"  :tongue:

 

Learn to run away!  Well, actually it's, "Learn not to open that door!"  The quests generally have a pretty long build-up; three-or-four linked objectives that lead to the hideout of the boss bad-guy.  The first couple of missions are easier, but the later ones require a tougher party to survive them.  :thumbsup:

 

(Or, you know... There's always, "Try a reduced Difficulty setting."  :happy: )

Hahahaha! Very true .. However, reducing difficulty once I've started a game, though, always feels like breaking the law or something (funny how kidding doesn't feel that way at all) :laugh: 
Thanks for the info... I appreciate it. :dance:

iirc enemies are scaled to Hawke's level in da2 so if a particular encounter is giving you trouble you might want to rethink strategy/team roster/point allocation

The answer to any given fight is usually Anders and Aveline. Anders to bring errybody back to life, and Aveline to survive like a sodding cockroach in case Anders dies.

Any specified skills in particular for Anders you'd recommend?
