Dragon Age: The Veilguard Level Cap and “Enormous” Skill System Detailed

We have already covered quite a lot of content around Dragon Age: The Veilguard. This includes combat and the character creator. You can read all about that here. However, if you want a bit more information on the game’s skill tree and levelling system, you have come to the right place.

According to a new interview with RPG Site, Dragon Age: The Veilguard features an “enormous skill tree” with “incredibly deep” RPG progression. Here are some ways the game expands on the experience know from the first three games.

Dragon Age: The Veilguard features a level cap of 50. While we don’t know how far into the game you will be when you reach this level, 50 will likely take you a good while to get to. The game features a base management system called The Lighthouse. Here, players will manage their companions, engage in conversations with them, romance them and upgrade various aspects of the base.

According to BioWare, Dragon Age: The Veilguard is described as an “incredibly deep” RPG. When it comes to the game’s progression, there’s a lot more role-playing compared to say, Mass Effect. The game director says in Mass Effect, there was “big action, minor RPG”. The Veilguard is the “total inverse of that”.

Players will be able to level up and explore an “enormous” skill tree that is designed in a web bespoke for each class. The skill tree is compared to the Sphere Grid in Final Fantasy X. Players start in the centre and work their way outwards. Along the way, they determine the play style for themselves and their companions while focusing on certain skills.

Warriors, for example, can focus on a defence-orientated skill line to turn into a tank class or a melee-focused skill line. The origin you start with at the beginning of the game might also come with certain perks available in the skill tree already. They also determine some special speech options when engaging in dialogue.

Players can obtain skill points by levelling up or by completing other in-game objectives and activities. BioWare says players will reach their class specialisation around mid-game and can branch out to other perks and skills shortly after.

Each companion has 5 core abilities and their own unique skill trees. Players can customise them for a different play style. For example, lower cooldowns and additional elemental damage complement certain characters while damage buffs and faster stamina gain work for others.

Each companion in Dragon Age: The Veilguard also has its own unique perks. Some perks are elemental while others might be the ability to wield certain weapons. For example, Neve is a major ice elemental wielder. Most of their skills and attack styles revolve around this damage type.

Dragon Age: The Veilguard is expected to launch later this year on PS5, Xbox Series X/S and PC.
