    The Striker/Bruiser accomplishments/achievements/tropies require you to "Kill 25/100 enemies with melee attacks" respectively. Seeing as I'm the "shoot enemies from far away as possible" type of player, I rarely get up close and personal, however, Husks that latch on to you can be killed by a melee counter.

    I wonder - does killing off a Husk latching on to you with the melee button count as a melee kill or do I have to actually kill enemies with the melee button?

  • Yes. You do kill them with melee after all.

  • It will count as a melee kill.

  • In some areas there are traps that I can clearly see on the ground. Yep, I see you... I want to disarm or set them off safely but I can't (that way I don't accidentally walk into them the next time I'm in the area). All of these I've tried does nothing and provides no options and usually just hurts me: Sneaking up to it Walking up to it Running onto it Moving around with a shield Attacking it Using spells/abilities on it I figure I could probably lure enemies onto it but I usually kill them off before I ever encounter these.

  • I am playing as a rogue and I enjoy attacking from a distance with my bow. However, sometimes things get up close and personal. As opposed to Origins and Awakening, you can't have two sets of weapons, so I can't easily switch from a ranged weapon to melee weapons. Hawke however doesn't seem to care and goes off melee attacking foes when they get too close. So how is that melee damage, while a bow is equipped, determined? Is it only Dexterity with no other modifier? Does the ranged weapon somehow affect the melee damage? Is it worth changing to daggers when things get too hot

I think I lose energy, but I'm not sure? Does it count as a continue? (Does the game even track the number of times I have continued after dying?) Does it depend on the difficulty level? Or is it just perfectly A-Ok to fall to your death, there's no effect on the game at all?
