I have never noticed it.  Wonder why it's from only from afar as well

um, it's not only from afar, he's telling you to do it from afar so you can find the level before you are fighting it.

That's not what I asked.

I asked how do you tell the level of the NPC.  He responded that you can only do it from afar.
That means you can't do it when you're close up.

My next statement was I wonder why you can't do it either way.

he never said you can only do it from afar though, you just took it that way and I didn't understand why you thought that's what he meant.

you asked how do I tell their level, he said to target them from afar.  He was suggesting you do that because if you waiit until you are right next to them you can't avoid the fight and that seemed to be why you were asking for their level.

ok gotcha, I guess for now on, I'll have to read his mind instead of taking what was actually written.  Guess I have to sharpen my psychic skills for the future.  Good to know.

So I'm "from afar" and I'm not seeing any level indicators.  I'm guessing it's some setting I need to enable...

Alright guys, it's confirmed. Party banter, and player cued random banter, is bugged for a large number of people.

Apparently, if you're like me and have wandered about a lot, only to have it silent most of the time, the reality is that party members should be talking quite a bit.

And as I mentioned above, there should be moments where, as part of some banter, a prompt comes up that lets you respond to question. I think this happens once if you're exploring in the prologue. It has not happened for me again since then.

For what it's worth, I always jump into Tactical Cam mode and survey enemy levels that way.  It's a simple matter of moving the cursor over them, and because time is stopped, there's no risk of them getting agitated by your presence.

Interesting.  My party members chat among themselves pretty frequently, but I've seen exactly one "Speak Up" prompt for my own character and it was in response to a solved side quest.  Never saw it once during the prologue, and believe me: I went through it enough times to know.

If you hadn't mentioned it, I'd have never known it was missing.  I hope the regular party banter doesn't glitch out too -- I've really enjoyed some of their exchanges.

Stupid question time, but in my defense I kept drifting in and out of sleep playing the game last night.

How the hell do I get to the War Room/War Table thing?

If you're right at the start of the game and have finished the tutorial, but have never visited the War Table before, it's in the Haven Chantry.  Enter the big double doors to the Chantry (that's the big building all the way up at the top of the hill) and just go straight through the building.  It's on the far side directly opposite the entry doors.

If you're talking about Skyhold I'm 40 hours in and haven't gotten that far (I've gotten schooled twice right at the very tail end of the last mission to close out Chapter 1, wiped once at Level 8 and once at Level 9 playing on hard, I think I'm right at the very end, but can't quite finish it without a party wipe).

Pro tip:  Spend enough Inquisition perks to unlock the "Deft Hands, Fine Tools" early on.  I have around half a dozen quests in different areas that I can't access until I get that perk.  And since I haven't spent any points in that category so far (that particular perk doesn't unlock until you spend at least 4), it's going to be a minimum of 5 more Inquisition levels until I'll be able to even start any those quests.  In my nearly 40 hours, I'm only at Inquisition level 8, so it's going to be a long, long time until I can even get a chance to finish those quests.  frown

Finished my first romance questline (Josephine...rawr).  It was extremely well done, with a great story and a fantastic ending.  I also just finished a hilarious cutscene that centered around a card game.  While it didn't move the plot forward per se, it was such a wonderful example of storytelling...showing how these characters can actually drop their guard and have some fun.  Brought a big ol' smile to my face.  Now it's back to killing stuff.

I took the advice to "leave the f-ing Hinterlands" and very glad I did. Had more fun last night than I have since I started the game. Wrapped up one major story quest and set myself up for more adventure to come.

To be honest, I don't know how you can stick around the Hinterlands for any significant length of time anyway - the edges of that zone get into Level 12 territory, and I was getting my ass kicked trying to pick up some of the shards.

Spoiler for one region in the Hinterlands:

Spoiler for Hiden:
Walking into the Queen's Valley region and seeing a dragon flying overhead setting stuff on fire was one of the coolest moments ever in any RPG. It turned on me, toasted my party, and I was just sitting there going HOLY SHIT! HOLY SHIT! over and over with this big smile on my face.
