11 Best Dragon Age Inquisition Mods You Should Be Using Right Now
See Thedas in a Different Way
Whether you’re a newcomer to the game or a six-hundred hours seasoned vet like myself, Inquisition has mods for everyone level of player. From replacing those silly Skyhold pajamas to giving yourself quicker looting, or more Inquisition levels.
Inquisition modding, unlike modding in Dragon Age Origins, is not modding centered around adding in extra content but rather centers on enhancing the game that’s already there. So what are these mods and what do they do?
11) MRM-Multiple Romance Mod
Can’t decide between Josephine or Cullen? Then don’t!
The MRM or Multiple Romance Mod is a mod that allows you to pursue multiple romances within one playthrough. No longer do you need to worry about Solas finding out that you’re flirting with Bull, or Cassandra find out about your fling with Josephine.
What the mod actually does, is remove the conversation check that flags that you’re already in another romance, allowing you to pursue as many as you like. Given that different characters have different checks, this mod requires you to install a separate mod for each separate romanceable character, but once you’re finished installing you’re all set!
10)Eyebrows 4 Women and Katherine Face Texture
It’s all in the brows.
Looking for better eyebrows than the default hairy game ones? This is the mod for you. What “Eyebrows 4 Women” does is give you a high definition texture replace for the eyebrows that are currently in the game. The end result looks fantastic and looks even better in conversation.
Play male characters instead? “Eyebrows 4 Women” has a male counterpart called, “Eyebrows 4 Men” giving the male characters the same high definition brows that the females can have.
9) War Table - No Waiting
There’s nothing worse than waiting around for a mission to end.
When playing Inquisition one of the biggest time wasters I’ve found is waiting around for some new War Table mission to complete. Though the game gives you tons of side quests to occupy yourself in the meantime, it’s still a wait.
“War Table - No Wait” is a self-explanatory mod that vastly improves quality of life while playing Inquisition. Started a War Table mission for Sera but don’t want to wait on it? This mod removes all wait from the War Table missions and lets you get back to the game faster.
8) Custom Body Models - and DAI Mesh Modding Tutorial
Unhappy with the current body models? This is the mod for you.
Unhappy with the default body for your Inquisitor? Wanting a more curvy appeal, or perhaps you’re looking to make your elven body more muscled? Look no further than the Custom Body Models mod. So what are your options? The mod doesn’t just offer one type of body for each gender, but at the very least three different and unique models.
But beyond the mod itself, it also comes with a tutorial on how to mod Inquisition yourself, even if you have no experience. The guide brings you step by step on how to get into the modding scene by walking you through 3ds Max as well as how to use the modding tool.
7) Ardent Blossom Misc Store
Who doesn’t love more options in gear?
Though we may come for the ardent blossoms, there’s more than just one reason to download this mod. This mod gives you an one stop shop for all DLC gear items, that usually would take hours to acquire. Complete with gear upgrades as well, this mod is a great way to outfit your character the second you get into Val Royeaux.
Best part? All the items in the store are free. No worrying about saving up tons of gold by completing every quest in the Hinterlands before even getting to Val Royeaux!
Miss the Origins way of conversations?
Unlike Dragon Age: Origins, Inquisition opted for a wider camera in conversations, rather than the zoomed in camera of before. While some liked the natural feel of an idle conversation with their companions, there are many who miss the zoomed in conversations of Origins; this mod is for them.
It’s also important to point out that this mod does not override cinematic companion conversations. Rather simply zoomed in on the normal conversations such as quest or merchant conversations.
5) Those Eyes
Best mod to pair with your enhanced eyebrows? Better eyes!
Another one of the top mods for Inquisition is a texture replacement for the default eyes. Like the eyebrow replacer, this easy to install replacement does away with the drab eyes you start with and instead gives your Inquisitor the eyes worthy of the title “Chosen of Andraste”.
The mod comes with thirteen different eye replacers to choose from eyes that are more simply more realistic looking, to eyes that otherworldly. It’s important to note that you can only use one eye replacement at a time, so choose carefully!
4) Female complexions
Update your female Inquisitor with a better look.
One thing that really struck me while playing is how absolutely amazing Morrigan’s updated model looked. Her complexion, as well as Calpernia and Sera seemed a cut above the default complexions in game. It was only natural that modders would dig through the game's files for those very complexions when releasing modding packs.
Hence “Female Complexions” was born. A mod that allows those custom complexions not only for use on other humans and elves but dwarves too (as well as Calpernia’s skin for Qunari). Complete with an attempt at Yennefer from Witcher 3’s complexion as well.
3) Rare Weapons
Looking for custom weapons to add to your arsenal? Look no further.
Though in terms of stats, it was usually better to use your own crafted weapons, there were some fantastic custom models in game that almost made the stat difference worth the look. Thankfully, with this mod, you can have those custom models and your stats too!
What this mod has done is take custom models usually only given once per game, and turned them into high tier 4 weapons. The sort that can see you right past the game and straight into Trespasser.
2) Trespasser Skyhold PJ Replacer and Schematics
We all need a new set of pajamas from time to time. Even then Inquisitor.
One of the biggest complaints about Inquisition was the awful beige tunic and pants worn around Skyhold. Jokingly named the “Skyhold Pajamas” players have been looking for replacements to the suit since release.
Though Bioware did much to improve upon the set giving you a few extra choices while in Skyhold with a later patch there’s still something left to be desired. This mod aims to fill that need by replacing your regular Skyhold set with Trespasser or DLC armors.
1)More Inquisition Levels
Having a hard time choosing between perks before reaching your cap? Take a look at this mod.
With only twenty levels of your Inquisition in the default game, at times it was hard to make sure you choose the perks best for your needs in game. Thankfully, with this mod, your Inquisition can reach its fullest potential at thirty levels and gain the full thirty-four Inquisition points.
This mod really goes great with any playthrough, though it is important to note that this mod does not work with Ardent Blossom Store, but if you’re not planning to use that mod, this is mod is a must-install.
So How Do You Install These?
Using Dragon Age Mods can be confusing at times, but thanks to sites like the Nexus installations are easy using the Mod Manager. These managers can organize and help install harder to install mods letting you get back to your game faster and with less headache.
