How to level up faster or farm experience points [XP]:

Infinite Gold Cheat And Skipping War Table Missions:

Here is how you can earn infinite gold and skip war table missions. You need to select any mission from the war table that grants gold upon completion. Then you need to change the time of your console or gaming PC by an hour forward. Go back, the mission will be completed earning you gold. Rinse and repeat.

Cheat Codes:

Update: Users have been able to use a Cheat Engine table that changes the camera to tactical mode. You can read about it here. We will update this section as we get more information on cheats and cheat codes.

It must be noted that the cheats below worked for the PC version of  Dragon Age Origins and Dragon Age 2. However it’s possible that they may not work for Dragon Age Inquisition.

In the meantime, let us know what works for you in the comments section below.

Awesome Stuff that you might be interested in

    It is well known and established that the cheats from the previous Dragon Age games do not work in this game, so why continue to list them above? The article said that the information would be updated when more is known. The invalidity of the aforementioned cheat commands has been known since directly after the game was released, so even before this article was published (apparently on November 27th), so I would strongly suggest a major update to correct this issue.

      Anything for attention.

      Just came across this article. Seems like it was updated just today.

    • John

      John, sorry but the article has not been updated, at least not in regard to the complaint that I registered with my comment. The problem is that the cheat codes that use the command “runscript” do not work in Dragon Age: Inquisition and have been known not to work since the game first came out. As such, there was no reason to put out false information in this article nor is there any reason for the information to remain within the article when it is known to be inaccurate, especially if one is concerned about the article being seen as a relevant source of information and the site being seen as a valid resource on the topic in question.

      I say to the writer of the article again that the bogus information be removed without any further delay.
