    Well I'm sad to say I've been having some rather major issues with the game since installing the latest patch.

    Game would get stuck on travelling screen when using the boat to leave the dragon island.
    Characters loaded on screen but textures were still left loading which made the game unable to save
    An entire portion of the game world failed to load leaving me stood in part of the loaded game world looking into a massive empty space with a few assets loaded in the distance
    The world streaming and highly annoying "running pause" is now more frequent than ever and once resulted in a completely unexpected reset of my machine. It paused around 5 times in just as many minutes.
    Twice now on top I've had to reboot my machine as the game would become totally unresponsive with high cpu usage

    Never suffered any of these issues either as bad as or at all before the latest 1.9GB patch so am pretty pissed off about it. I've gone from thoroughly enjoying my time with it to being afraid to even boot it up practically overnight. :bang:

    Just to update switching back to directx 11 from mantle seems to have cured all of my issues. Back to enjoying the game again.

    For singleplayer the Black Emporium add-on is now available and for multiplayer the Dragonslayer mode is also out now, both are actually free too.

    What part of the latest patch pissed off gamers?

    EDIT: Just checked out the items in the single player DLC: The Black Emporium. Just ... "Sigh", why would they do this? The items bought there goes from meh to legendary crazy OP craft.. And if you lack resources to craft said item, no worries ! The shop also sells ALL the resources in the game, even all the rare ones from dragons .. mmmhmm :bang: --- Bioware, putting the P2W element into singleplayer is just .. eh?

    Glad you got it resolved. If it makes you feel any better I personally found the boost from Mantle to be very minimal and I also got occasional crashes with it (though not as bad as it sounds you had). So you haven't really lost much by not using it.

    The only Dragon Age Inquisition review that was honest and that I agreed with!

    http://www.incgamers.com/2014/12/dragon-age-inquisition-review

    This review actually covers how the game was pretty much an offline MMO with boring quests and huge empty zones/maps that are banal and have no relation to the main quest.

    The core engine can look stunning. I bet with mods the gameplay can be improved.

    I agree for the most part. I still like the game, but it could have been SO much better if they accompanied the nice visuals with more story driven quests and less MMO-esque fetch quests. Even if this meant smaller zones/shorter story.

    So reading that review,it sounds like the controls kinda suck. I can't stand controllers. I have a wireless xbox 360 controller for pc,but I'm not really fond of it. I like the keyboard and mouse.

    The game is perfectly suited to playing with a controller actually and trust me when I say this is coming from someone who was once of the mind that no RPG would ever be properly suited to a none mouse and keyboard setup.

    Its suited for a controller,because its made for a console. It would be cool to stream it to my HTPC and play on the 60" plasma from the couch..

    Crashes, glitches and loading times. That's reasonable enough. Not everybody has 980SLI.

    Another patch was released.
    http://blog.bioware.com/2015/08/10/dragon-age-inquisition-patch-9-notes/

    (In addition to these fixes it probably also makes the game compatible with the upcoming DLC.)

    lemme know how it is, heard mediocre things about jaws of hakkon, not sure if this would be worth it either.

    tbh, most bioware games seem to have mediocre dlc
